Utah Jazz vs. Houston Rockets: Opponent Game Thread Highlights

March 13, 2015
tags: ,

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: The Dream Shake.

“Of course the Jazz used a No. 3 pick on a big man who didn’t pan out, and then luck into potentially the most revolutionary defensive player in the league this side of Roy Hibbert as a late-first-round European project. Of course, just when the Rockets need the Jazz to start sucking — Houston plays them again in the last game of the season — the Jazz start playing well.

Not just ‘well for the Jazz,’ either. With Gobert in the starting lineup, they’ve been the best defensive team in the league. Head coach Quin Snyder looks disturbingly competent. Of all the teams who have tanked the past few years, this is one of the best-positioned teams for improvement next year.”

Let’s get Rudy!!

I have a feeling we’re going to turn the ball over 20 times tonight

WE WANT THREE POINTERS WE WANT THREE POINTERS

LOL Dmo was scared shitless
of going over Gobert.

by Bobbythegreat on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:13 PM

D-mo is standing around
hes fucking watching.

by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:16 PM

Ariza….what the actual fuck?
How did you not get that board?

by Bobbythegreat on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:20 PM

No one on this team can get a fucking rebound
by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:21 PM

Everybody just standing around
FFS

by Michael 2k on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:20 PM

Gobert doesn’t seem like much of a basketball player
he’s just tall as hell

by Michael 2k on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:23 PM

WE MANAGED TO INBOUND THE BALL
ITS A MIRACLE

by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:24 PM


Well this one might
be over by halftime unless we unfuck ourselves.

by Bobbythegreat on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:25 PM

DOES NO ONE GIVE A FUCK?
by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:26 PM

You have to get someone
to just fucking club Gobert. Maybe McHale will figure out you cant have D-mo and Jones on the court with Gobert

by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:27 PM

PUT DORSEY IN AND HAVE HIM FOUL GOBERT AS HARD AS THEY CAN
UNTILL HE GETS EJECTED THEN SEE IF THAT FRENCH FUCK WANTS TO COME CAMP OUT IN THE LANE

by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:28 PM

Jesus, it takes 3 guys to get a board
over Gobert.

by Bobbythegreat on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:29 PM

Gobert is a fucking monster
even when he doesn’t get it, he gets it to his teammate

by Michael 2k on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:31 PM

my god, you gotta get Gobert into foul trouble somehow, he’s killing us
by NVP on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:32 PM

10 rebounds in the 1st Q by Gobert. Unacceptable.
by KLP713 on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:32 PM

HOW THE FUCK DO YOU GIVE UP 10 OFFENSIVE BOARDS IN ONE QUARTER
HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE HOW THE FUCK CAN THAT EVEN HAPPEN

by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:33 PM

MCHALE
STOP BEING A PUSSY AND PUT ON A UNIFORM AND GET IN THERE YOURSELF. CLOSELINE GOBERT SEE HOW HE LIKES IT

by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:34 PM


We need to go up with Gober sitting.
by KeriTheCreoleTexan on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:43 PM

God damn Gobert is lanky.
by Bobbythegreat on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:47 PM

We need to get Gobert into foul trouble
by H_Town5 on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:48 PM

Another offensive board to Goberton a FAST BREAK
by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:52 PM


yeah everyone is scared around the rim
rushing every shot

by NVP on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:54 PM

Utah fans are so ignorant.
They’ve gotten every ticky tack call, they don’t get one, and go nuts.
No respect.

by Xiane on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:54 PM

How in the fuck was that not over the back?
by Bobbythegreat on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:56 PM

Nothing is over the back for Gobert.
by Xiane on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:57 PM

these refs are a fucking joke right now cmon
by WattYouTalknBoutWillis on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:57 PM

Fucking trash.
by KeriTheCreoleTexan on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:58 PM

Everything is a foul on Houston apparently.
Just playing basketball is a foul.
Way to listen to the ignorant Utah crowd refs.

by Xiane on Mar 12, 2015 | 8:58 PM

They’re calling a lot of just ticky tacky stuff.
And it would be nice if they actually knew what over the back was, since that’s like 1/3 of Gobblers plays.

by Xiane on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:00 PM


I’ve never seen shots going in look uglier than this Ingles guy.
by Xiane on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:01 PM

Wow im done with this game
by H_Town5 on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:06 PM

I’m done with this game
Cant trust this team worth a damn

by NVP on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:08 PM

Did Gobert really show anything before he got a chance?
by ChucktheWagon on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:11 PM

Well he showed that he was tall as fuck
and he could drink legally.

by Bobbythegreat on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:12 PM

Fuck you Rockets
Forcing me to watch you

by ChucktheWagon on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:25 PM

Harden can go sit his ass down
by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:28 PM

Harden SIT THE FUCK DOWN
by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:35 PM

ok refs try not to be too obvious
by WattYouTalknBoutWillis on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:36 PM

This is not even close to the Old UTah Advantage
not even close we have no right to complain

by ChucktheWagon on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:39 PM

Well yeah.
But screw Utah.

by Xiane on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:41 PM

by inquisitiveman on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:49 PM

Ariza you fucking suck

by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 9:56 PM

Mchale shave that goatee! Its brought nothing but bad luck!
by wavytrillswagg on Mar 12, 2015 | 10:00 PM

Hey Josh Smith took another three early in the shot clock
and we fouled another shooter. FUCK THESE REFS AND THE SCHEDULE.

by H&Hguy on Mar 12, 2015 | 10:01 PM

Mchale go fire yourself.
by wavytrillswagg on Mar 12, 2015 | 10:01 PM

by inquisitiveman on Mar 12, 2015 | 10:03 PM

When Joe Ingles can’t miss, you’re screwed.
by Xiane on Mar 12, 2015 | 10:08 PM

Fuck this team for saying “fuck this game”
and fuck me for being too much of a fan to turn this shitfest off

by Michael 2k on Mar 12, 2015 | 10:15 PM

Jazz announcers disappointed
That garbage time is going to deflate how dominant they were tonight

by Carlos_HoustonSportsFanatic on Mar 12, 2015 | 10:16 PM

Matt Harpring is Satan’s fart.

    Can Houston fans even complete a sentence without dropping an “F-bomb” or two, or three . . . to infinity? Houston fans need to work on their vocabulary, so they can hurl insults with more style and flair–“F-bombs” are so plebian. Any idiot can hurl an “F-bomb,” and most idiots do.

    I love all of this, thank you Moni

    This made me grateful for SLC Dunk’s language restrictions. That commentary likely keeps a lot of other folks from participating.

    I want to see Bob Balaban of Moonrise Kingdom give a narration of the Houston fans’ emotional rollercoaster during this game.

    Another confirmation for me, why i dislike this whole franchise for years now. what an aggressive fanbase. Most of this opponent threads are funny and smooth to read, but this stands out in the most possible negative way.
