Having digested the altercation between Favors and Plumlee I am not sure why anyone was ejected? No punches. Favors a shove, Plumlee came back at him but is that really an ejection?

Jazz 13 of 27 in the 1st half is a franchise record for makes and attempts in a half of basketball.
Interesting note – Nuggets have been very prideful about their new defense and the attack on the ball they got out of it and dropped the big later in the half.

Jazz 84 Nuggets 72 with 2:39 left in the 3rd quarter
Game doesn’t feel like a 12 point lead feels much closer. Nuggets offense is so great they are able to score
