Game 62 vs. LAC: Okurrence

March 7, 2010

I really could leave the recap just at this picture. Memo was conflagrating tonight, and it was a reminder of how good we can be if all of our guys are healthy and on their games.

The Jazz have some bad habits they really need to break. Per BBJ, the Jazz have started out slow in 10 of their last 15 games. Tonight was another one of those nights. Fortunately, the slow start didn’t last as long as last night (or the night before, or the night before), and a hot start in the third quarter kept the Clips at bay the rest of the way.

It was all about (–bad band name alert–) Moneyman and the Rookies tonight. Memo was 11-17 from the floor, including 3-4 from downtown and a huge hammer dunk off the one missed 3, and also added 7 boards, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. For the second game in a row, Jerry opted to go with Sundiata at the backup point in the second half, and I for one love the switch. He runs the offense well, and plays tough, scrappy D. OMSW also came through with some big baskets, and the lead was big enough that Othyus Jeffers (and the Koof) were able to check in with 2:20 left. Sap immediately stole the ball, and Yatta passed to OJ for his first NBA bucket. Now that was something to smile about.

    You are spot on. At some point in the second quarter I felt like something clicked, and they started playing like they had been during the winning streak. Even though it was still a close game at that point, I felt we would smoke them due to the aforementioned “click.” I can’t get over how much the Jazz feed off of momentum and confidence, the same streakiness that makes me love them, stresses me out, because I know we can beat anyone… and lose to anyone!

    BTW – Still lovin’ the blog, keep up the awesome work :)
