Time to turn off the Jazz
Posted by iCheerio on May 2, 2018 | 6:52 PM

and make them sing the Blues
Posted by TexianArmy3495 on May 2, 2018 | 7:00 PM

Empty seats…
everyone at the yankees astro game?

Posted by iCheerio on May 2, 2018 | 7:18 PM

Garbage defense to
start the game.

Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 2, 2018 | 7:20 PM

Well at least we’re playing the Jazz and not the Warriors
we’d be down 15 already playing like this.

Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 2, 2018 | 7:23 PM

Atrocious defense thus far. What the hell are they doing? Credit the Jazz for hitting their shots and finding the open looks.
Posted by CP3Clutch on May 2, 2018 | 7:25 PM

Ingles is letting us have it
Posted by KrisD on May 2, 2018 | 7:27 PM

Jazz 2 points in the last 3 minutes after 20 in the first 6
Posted by Michael 2k on May 2, 2018 | 7:33 PM

Jazz fans should be stoked
The refs are letting their players do whatever they please to harden with 0 consequences

Posted by WattYouTalknBoutWillis on May 2, 2018 | 7:36 PM

Exum’s strategy seems to be hope he doesn’t get called and assault whomever he’s guarding.
Posted by Xiane on May 2, 2018 | 7:36 PM

Seriously pathetic effort
thus far.

Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 2, 2018 | 7:48 PM

Seriously can someone tell them this is the damn playoffs
some fucking effort would be appreciated

Posted by Michael 2k on May 2, 2018 | 7:50 PM


Gave up 36 to Utah
not a winning formula

Posted by Michael 2k on May 2, 2018 | 7:42 PM

Okay. So the Jazz played their best quarter of the season and we’re down 8. Whatever. Props to them.
Posted by CP3Clutch on May 2, 2018 | 7:43 PM

Let’s hope
they just blew their load.

Posted by tunatango on May 2, 2018 | 7:43 PM

Damn. All of the ROckets are on max contracts and…
The Jazz are are playing for free.

Posted by chuckiepoo on May 2, 2018 | 7:56 PM

wow lol the fix is in boys
fucking pathetic how obvious this is

Posted by WattYouTalknBoutWillis on May 2, 2018 | 8:13 PM

Posted by WattYouTalknBoutWillis on May 2, 2018 | 8:15 PM

Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 2, 2018 | 8:17 PM

Harden

Posted by tunatango on May 2, 2018 | 8:19 PM


DOWN TO 4
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 8:36 PM

Joe Ingles is ridiculous!!!! but we gonna win
Posted by Patman987 on May 2, 2018 | 8:38 PM

I knew Ingles was gonna be the Jazz player I hated this most this series.
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 8:39 PM

TIE BALLGAME
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 8:42 PM

It took 5 game minutes to cut a 16 point defecit to zero
Posted by martymouse on May 2, 2018 | 8:43 PM

WOW, refs taking over
Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 2, 2018 | 8:54 PM

Refs trying to keep this close.
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 8:54 PM

It’d be nice if CP3 would show up now
Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 2, 2018 | 8:55 PM

Every game against
the Warriors will be 5 on 8, might as well get used to it now.

Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 2, 2018 | 8:57 PM

More
5 on 8 keeping the Jazz in it after the Rockets finally woke up.

Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 2, 2018 | 9:01 PM

Lmao Alec Burks 17 points on 7/11 shooting
How is that even possible

Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 2, 2018 | 9:09 PM

When did Burks become Michael Jordan?
Posted by Xiane on May 2, 2018 | 9:09 PM


We play like garbage and have the lead with 8 minutes to go.
Take Note Jazz

Posted by martymouse on May 2, 2018 | 9:13 PM

Why the fuck is Dante Exum hitting 3s?
Better yet, why the fuck is Dante Exum actually getting minutes in a playoff game and not looking terrible?

Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 2, 2018 | 9:18 PM

Are we playing the Utah Jazz or
The Navy Seal snipers??

Posted by Daniel C on May 2, 2018 | 9:18 PM

Keep leaving Ingles smh
Posted by Michael 2k on May 2, 2018 | 9:21 PM

WHY ARE YOU GOING TO LEAVE INGLES OPEN
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 9:21 PM

This trash offense shooting lights out from the 3 point line is irritating
Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 2, 2018 | 9:21 PM

These refs are fucking trash.
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 9:25 PM

All the fouls are Rockets fouls.
Posted by Xiane on May 2, 2018 | 9:26 PM

Even though they had to play 5 on 8 all game long,
the Rockets still don’t deserve to win a game where they shoot 26% from 3.

Posted by Bobbythegreat on May 2, 2018 | 9:27 PM


STOP LEAVING INGLES OPEN
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 9:29 PM

Literally all you have to do is stick on Ingles.. stop giving him 4 feet of floor space
Posted by TEXANalytics on May 2, 2018 | 9:29 PM

The Rockets don’t deserve to win this when they leave Joe Ingles wide open this often.
Posted by ehburrus on May 2, 2018 | 9:29 PM

If you let Joe Ingles beat you, you deserve to lose.
Posted by The Boyce on May 2, 2018 | 9:31 PM

THESE REFS FUCKING SUCK
Posted by martymouse on May 2, 2018 | 9:32 PM

Man fuck this ref team.
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 9:32 PM

Dante Exum is a scrub
Him having this kind of impact in this game is beyond annoying

Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 2, 2018 | 9:32 PM

Jesus Christ
This scrub is having the game of his life

Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on May 2, 2018 | 9:39 PM

Not a coincidence we got these refs.
its just not
too much questionable bullshit this game swinging momentum at key points

Posted by martymouse on May 2, 2018 | 9:34 PM

This is why it’s hard for me to get into the NBA.
It’s rigged.

Posted by The Boyce on May 2, 2018 | 9:38 PM

Bullshit fucking game.
Posted by chriscjackson on May 2, 2018 | 9:42 PM

Tony Brothers can suck my butt.

not_so_bueno
Can’t believe how cocky we got. The Jazz have been frightening.

sirLemonardo
The basket on the right is clearly fucked up, so many shots have rimmed out while the one on the left sucks in everything the Jazz put up, we’ll be fine in the second, just keep on shooting

haloti
Joe Ingles always looks like he slammed 6 Coors Lights before he took the court.


theGreenvillain
Wow. Harden is so good at manipulating the refs. He deserves MVP

FathomSwank

Utah’s coach has that look like he might have accidentally killed a hooker once or twice in his life.

Thephantshitter
>Accidentally

PresidentBoobs
I always get the super villain vibe

uwill1der
Just remember, Utah gave up a 26 point lead in the playoffs this year already. Losing a 9 point lead is nothing to them.

Erebus8
Ingles looks like a guy that would come out in To Catch a Predator.

EnterAdman
I just love that look of defeat and anger Jazz players get when our guys bait them into a foul.

Sabinr13
Trash ass refs

IHaveNussingToSay
These refs tryna help jazz steal a game, what the actual fuck

EnterAdman
Imma be waiting outside for these refs.

nonetimeaccount
FUCK THESE REFS BOTH WAYS

Catch_These_Hands94
We are definitely gonna be shook by Utah at home. They actually have a home court

Sabinr13
Yep. We lost the juice. If we lose tonight then I’m honestly scared for the series going to Utah

MrWombatt
The last thing we’d want is for them to go home to Utah with any real momentum. It’s going to be off the hook.

Sabinr13
THEY have a home court.

bruux
Well I have to give it to the Jazz. Looked like we had the momentum after taking the lead but they came back firing and haven’t looked back.

Whydidideletemyaccou
Man, we’ve been getting absolutely FUCKED by the refs in the 4th.

armanigracia
HOW ARE WE GETTING BEAT BY TOBY FROM THE OFFICE

Louisetrecorde
Yeah man that plumber can shoot. I aint even mad. Shits ridiculous

MugiMartin
I tip off my cap to Mr. Ingles. He’s on fire.


TheJigalo
Ok refs just give them the game. Sounds like a plan.

oiducwa
Why would you leave Toby of all people open.

Next_Episode
the scranton strangler is making it rain on us

I_Meme_Business
We have the worst home court in the NBA.

at_work_safe_acct
This is the worst fucking reffed game I’ve ever seen.

Farlost
This is a joke. Blatant boas by the refs this quarter

j3i
Jazz are going to flop all over Harden this whole series, aren’t they

MrWombatt
Utah came in hungry. They deserve to win this game.

armanigracia
We should be killing these guys. Now we have to go to Utah and see Mitt Romney for 2 games. Good hell.

L1ghtf1ghter
Wearing a jersey over a dress shirt no doubt

theGreenvillain
If we lose to a rookie how can we expect to beat 4 NBA ALLSTARS on the WARRIORS

HandsomeBadger
mitchell was trash, he hit 6 from 21

optimuspoopprime
Great now we go to the loudest NBA crowd for the next 2 games.

theep3
are they really?

optimuspoopprime
Yeah. Especially this post season. Those Mormons don’t play.

    I guess Houston fans think the refs are crap when they don’t call 15 phantom foul calls for James Harden and Chris Paul combined–tonight they only gave them about 10; that’s crap refereeing for Houston fans!

    I didn’t see any of the Houston fans mention those two obvious flop calls that Chris Paul got when he spun around funny in the air and flopped near the top of the key (his defender wasn’t even close to fouling him). I think that the refs felt they had to call fouls on those two obvious flops so that it didn’t make Chris Paul look ridiculous and cause him to lose face–because he’s supposed to be an all-star.

    I also didn’t see any Houston fans comment on the moving screens Clint Capela was setting all night long. Capela looked like an offensive tackle out there doing pass blocking on every screen he set–if the Jazz man he was screening moved, he moved right with him and gave him a few shivers with his forearms to keep him from getting to the quarterback.

Thoughts?
