Game 79 @ HOU: A pox on the lot of you
1) The Rockets also played last night.
2) The arena was EMPTY, negating home court advantage (I have never seen an emptier arena).
3) The Rockets were playing a 6’6″ center.
Turnovers (26 TOs to 25 assists). The aforementioned 6’6″ center outrebounding Boozer and Memo combined (18 to 16). Brooks scoring more threes than the Jazz (5 to 3). Airballs. Bumbling and bobbling passes. Lazy long jumpers, despite the Rockets’ lack of bigs or shot-blockers. Ticky-tack fouls ending in and-1s. Korver at one point taking an hour to set up for a three, and still no Jazzmen got into position to rebound.
Good to know that we can’t play with teams bigger OR smaller than us.
There weren’t enough fans in the stands to start a chant, but I was compelled to start my own: Utah sucks! Utah sucks!
If I’m the deep-pockets-and-many-resources Miller family, I’m funding a “Clone AK” project and demanding hourly progress reports. If only one AK is playing at a time, the other one should be healthy and ready to step in when the first one gets injured.
At least NY lost and Nellie won’t be getting the record against us. That’s something, however little.
