Twitter thread starts tonight at halftime where the Jazz leads the Hawks by 1 42-41. This feels a lot like the last meeting when the Hawks defense had the Jazz offense out of sorts for the entire game. Jazz are 16 of 50 and 5 of 20 from 3

Dennis Schroder torched the Jazz in the 3rd quarter last game when Gobert went out of the game and the Jazz never recovered. Tonight he is doing it but with Gobert in the game. he has 24 points on 9 of 17 shooting. Jazz 58-57

Last time it was 61-60 and Hawks went on 34 to 9 run to destroy the Jazz. Hope the Jazz can turn the table
End of 3 quarters Jazz 67 Hawks 63. Jazz really struggling to get any rhythm in this game. Jazz are 2 of last 15 from three. The Hawks defense is tight on the ball handler and leaving the bigs at the rim. Gobert just 5 shots.

Dennis Schroeder is going one on one and killing the Jazz he has 30. Jazz lead it 79-75 with 6:56 left. Both defenses are dominating neither team has an offensive rating over 90. Mitchell has 18, 9 in 2nd half but is 3 of 10 shooting

Clutch time coming. Jazz 83 Hawks 82 with 4:59 left. Jazz have never had any flow. Rudy Gobert has 5 fouls. This is nerve-racking.

Hawks 87 Jazz 86 with 3:02 to play. The Jazz are 2 of last 21 from 3

Flagrant foul on Dennis Schroder for a swipe to Ricky Rubio. Hawks lead it 91-88 with 2:07 left and Schroder has 38 points. Jazz get 2 free throws.

Hawks score 36 4th quarter points and end the Jazz win streak at 9 with a 99-94 win. Dennis Schroder was unstoppable with 41 points. Joe Ingles got two wide open looks and the league’s leader from 3 point range didn’t convert tonight.

In this playoff race this is the first time any of the teams 3-10 have lost a game when an 80%+ win probability prior to this those teams were 18-0.
