Game 30 at HOU: Let me tell y’all a story
Once upon a time…
Raja said, “F— yeah!”
Jazz fans said “F— no!”*
*Not piling it on CJ. I’m sure he feels bad enough already.
And all the land was sad.
** Earl Watson, post-game: For me, my role has to be just very physical. If I foul out, I foul out…We can’t keep letting point guards have 20+ points and our pick and roll coverage don’t change. If it doesn’t change, I have to change.
