Playoffs R1G3: Pop(pa) Said Knock You Out
Let’s forget everything that happened in this game, including the part about how the ball below is basically a representation of the Jazz’s season at this point in time. Instead, let’s revel in this play, and our future, which is spelled F-A-V-O-R-S.

Tyrone Corbin’s Game 4 To-Do List (from his post-game)
** We gotta learn our lessons from it. You gotta learn from what they do.
** We gotta keep fighting. We gotta keep fighting.
** We have to put guys in situations, do different things to give us a chance to win.

** We just have to keep trying to force our will on them.
** We gotta find a way to get inside.
** We gotta make free throws….we just have to make them…we gotta make the shots.
** We have to learn from them. We have to learn how we have to be more intense…we just have to continue to work at it.
