Game 11 vs. OKC: It had to happen some time…

November 16, 2010

…but it still sucks.

The opening minutes of the game were a mass of confusion to me:
** The Jazz were in their road uniforms (which apparently was a decision made ahead of time) and the Thunder in their home uniforms, but for some reason the Jazz were in their home shoes, and the Thunder were in their road shoes (see picture above).
** There was no score on the screen.
** Matty wasn’t there and Booner was back on the call with Boler.
** We weren’t the ones with a slow start. We were the ones with the quick double digit lead.
** Deron went all Millsap on OKC to start the game–three threes in a row and 16 in the quarter.
** 30-point 1st quarter instead of 30-point half.
** The crowd was louder than it had been in a long, long time.

Who are we????????????

I don’t want to get into the officiating, and apart from citing two stats, this is I’ll going to say/post:

** Both teams were called for 21 fouls, but that somehow translated into a +12 FTA advantage for OKC. For a good part of the game, KD had more FTAs than the entire Jazz.

Anyway, there’s a lot more I someone with more knowledge of the game can go into, but the weather sucks and we lost and I’m tired and grumpy. So I’m going to leave you with Raja blowing bubbles:

Tonight’s Unintentional Dirty Quote Machine:
** Boler: Up and down she goes!
** Boler: Millsap penetrates, dumps it down. He should have taken that shot.
** Boler (talking about the McRibb and accidentally addressing Booner as “Boner”): I like it, it’s saucy Boner. (thanks to Tyler)

    You missed the best unintentional dirty quote of the night. Boler was doing the McDonald’s advertisement about the McRibb, and he said I like it, it’s saucy boner (not booner), I like it. Or something along those lines. I believe it was in the last minute of the first quarter.

      Thanks Tyler! I updated the post. The Booner/Boler combination is just an accidental “Boner” waiting to happen…I remember DJ accidentally addressing them collectively as “Boner” on the broadcast a couple of times too.
