Game 65 Jazz at Thunder: At least it wasn’t a 50-point game
Suck-o Stats of the Night
** The Jazz shot .227 through two quarters and .297 through three.
** Per @sluhm, the Jazz managed to go eight minutes without a point to close the first half, including 19 straight scoreless possessions.
** The Jazz are 2-8 since the trade deadline and/or in their last 10 games.
** Tyrone Corbin yesterday on playing the Oklahoma City Thunder: We feel better, pretty good about getting anybody in the half-court game, especially if they’re trying to stop our offensive plays.
** Tyrone Corbin, post-game: I don’t think we gave our best effort in that first half to start off, and you know, the third quarter we just couldn’t get it going. I thought the bench guys came in and at least they played hard.
** Corbin on the aforementioned second quarter: We missed shots…you know, nine points in the quarter and no points in the paint. It’s not good.

** Harpring on the Jazz: They gotta really pound them. They gotta use their size.
** Harpring: Jazz are having a hard time getting into Hayward. Or even Marvin.
** Boler The Thunder went small and the Jazz still didn’t try to pound it inside, surprisingly.
** Boler: Al was forced up, forced to take that shot.
** Sidney Lowe: If there is penetration then we need to help. (H/T @da_breezman)
** Harpring: I did a little work on Ibaka before the game.
