Game 16 of 82: Utah Jazz at Oklahoma City Thunder (5-11)

November 27, 2014



Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on the game
I thought we, you know, we were really ready to play, and they played very, very well, you know, on both ends of the court. The game got more physical, and it knocked us back. So, I think when that happens, particularly with a group that, I don’t know, that was as dominant in that way–this is a very physical, strong team, and they were, they were really, they, I don’t know, want to have to say they were desperate, but they clearly were hungry. And you know, we didn’t respond to that. I didn’t think we backed down, per se. I just don’t think we were able to play as well as we wanted under those circumstances. … We weren’t able to match that physicality.
** Snyder on the Jazz’s outgunned second team
There’s some young bodies in that second group, and they’ve played really hard, and they competed. You know, again, Dante [Exum], Rudy [Gobert]. You know, Trevor [Booker] didn’t have as good a game as he’s capable of having. All those guys, you know, and like I said, I didn’t see for a minute that they backed down. I didn’t see that they were intimidated or, you know, I saw fight in ’em. It’s just, it wasn’t a fight that we were capable of winning right now.

** Gordon Hayward on the game
They got physical with us. They took us out of what we wanted to do, and unfortunately we didn’t respond the way we probably should have. But, definitely came out with energy. Got off to a really good start. A really good start…It kinda just fell apart, so.

Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Craig Bolerjack on Trey Burke: TB, head up, goes inside. (H/T @mac_jazz)
** Boler: [Gordon] Hayward tries to penetrate, does. Muscles it up and in.
** Boler: You saw Rudy [Gobert] throw out a hand, like, “Where’s the help?”
Ron Boone: Yeah, well, he knows if he goes to help you, you’re supposed to be helping him, in some kind of way.
** Boler: Hayward, to the rack. He’s slapped from behind.
** Boler: Booner, you saw it coming. Reggie Jackson to [Nick] Collison. Everyone collapsed on Collison, and Reggie went backdoor.
** Boler on Derrick Favors bucket: Fav, take it up, big fella…Nice kiss, and it rolls in.

RIP Mike Wells’ perfect record.

The Jazz, by the way, are winless (0-1 in preseason, 0-3 in regular season) when Quin Snyder is wearing this tie.
