Jazz v. Bucks
Key Notes: Bucks have won 19 of 21. Jazz have won 18 of 22 at home
Bucks allow the fewest shots at the rim and the most 3s
Bucks take the 2nd most amount of shots at the rim

Bucks 8 Jazz 0 with 9:25 left in the 1st quarter
Giannis who got flustered last game v. Jazz when Gobert was guarding him tonight is going straight to the basket and attacking. Pushed off to get his first two dunks and then floated one over Gobert.

Bucks 20 Jazz 8 with 4:27 left in 1st Q
Brook Lopez with a season high 6 blocks. Jazz trying to get to rim v. team that is #1 in denying and defending the rim and it is not working.
Bucks defense switches less than any team in NBA. Houston has switched 1800 picks. Bucks 200.

Jazz 57 Bucks 57 with 9:13 in the 3rd quarter
Bucks started 20-8 then the Jazz took at 13 point lead and then Bucks got it back to 7 by the half and now it is tied.
Game has been dictated by who the Bucks have on the floor
Giannis 6 pts at rim in 1st Q, 0 in 2nd, 6 now in 3rd
Jazz are 2 for 20 on non restricted area 2s. Pass out and take the 3 Bucks allow the most 3s in the nba

Bucks 69 Jazz 65 with 4:10 left in the 3rd quarter
The officiating of Giannis push off is more infuriating than anything with Harden
Game is completely dictated by who is on the floor
Middleton +21
Lopez +19
Giannis +17

Bucks 90 Jazz 80 with 8:08 left in the 4th
Wow Giannis. Completely dominate – 32 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists. Came with a message after going 12/30 v. Jazz last game. Plays with such incredible intensity.
Bucks are 41-1 when lead after 3
Rudy Gobert tonight = Nikola Jokic on Thursday. It happens

Jazz win 115-111 over the Bucks
Jazz score on 19 of final 22 possessions
Derrick Favors and Donovan Mitchell checked into the game with the Jazz down 88-73 and outscored the Bucks over final 10 minutes 42-23
The Bucks were 41-1 when they lead going into the 4th quarter

EMPTYING THE NOGGIN – Jazz dominate Nets from early run to the finish

SUMMARY:  The Jazz go a 27 to 2 run from the first quarter to the second and blow out the Brooklyn Nets on their way to a 114-98 win.

  • Rudy Gobert was a dominating defensive force tonight that ruined the rhythm of both D’Angleo Russell and Caris LeVert. Gobert’s length has such an impact on the opponents shot selection that players get uncomfortable because they are not talking their normal looks.  The Jazz defense has held 7 of the last 10 opponents to under a point a possession

 

  • This game was interesting because both the Nets and Jazz play an analytics heavy game. The Jazz take the  6th most amount of shots at the rim and the 6th most amount of threes for the 4th most amount of “smart” shots at 76%   The Nets take the 12th most amount of shots at the rim and the 4th most amount of 3s for the 5th most amount of smart shots at 75%.   Now that is fine expect that both teams defensively take the same approach and deny these shots.  The Jazz rank 1st at 62.5% and the Nets rank 2nd at 64% at allowing fewest amount of smart shots.   So what happens?

 

  • The defenses won out. The Jazz took 29% of their shots as mid range shots compared the their usual 24% and the Nets shot an unreal 40% of their shots as mid range shots compared to their 25%.   Moreover, neither team shot them very well.  The Jazz were 8 of 29 and the Nets were 9 of 39.  At one point in the game the Nets were 4 of 22 on paint non restricted area shots.

 

  • D’Angle Russell had a miserable night. He finished 2 of 11 on mid range shots.

 

  • Derrick Favors had a sequence of the game when he was so much bigger and stronger than any of the Nets they couldn’t get a rebound. The Nets were trying to play zone and had to bail out of the zone because Favors was too much of a force on the boards

 

  • The Jazz bigs killed the Nets. Rudy Gobert had 23 points and 17 rebounds as well as 3 blocks and Derrick Favors had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks.

 

  • The Jazz were able to get off 13 corner 3 attempts which is a lot and a ton when you consider who they were playing. The Jazz are averaging well over 10 corner 3 attempts for the last 10 games.

 

  • Donovan notched another 20 point game. He has had 20 in 28 of his last 30 games

 

  • 13 three pointers for the Jazz. 12 seems to be the magic number for wins

 

  • Solid win now onto the East for a 4 game trip of huge importance.
