Amazing setting. Crowd all standing. Everyone has the t-shirts on. Banner just rolled out for National TV. Crowd feels like it going to erupt.
Keys

1) Jazz ball movement
2) Slowing down Westbrook and Adams pick and roll game
3) Putting Thunder late in the shot clock

Jazz are on a 8-0 run. The thunder are sending two the ball on the pick and roll and then trying bringing the defender out of the corner onto the roll man leaving the Jazz with wide open corner 3s. Ingles (49% on corner 3s) and Mitchell (48%) both nailed them. Jazz 16-10

Thunder adjust out of the timeout going to Patrick Patterson at center forcing Gobert to play out on the floor. Westbrook gets a drive to the basket for a layup and Patterson hits a three. Thunder now up 23-20. Good cat and mouse game going on

Thunder lead after 1 30-22 . Close the quarter on a 18 to 2 run and Jazz miss on 8 of last 9 shots. Thunder playing very different combinations. Went small with Patterson, then went 2 bigs with George and 2 point guards. Building is still pumping

First half of runs. Thunder went on a 18 to 2 run and the Jazz counter with a 22 to 4 run. Ricky Rubio goes nuts, with 19 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists. Jazz lead it at the half 58 to 53. Building is unreal tonight. These are two of the best fan atmospheres in the NBA

Thunder made 4 of their last 14 from the field to close the half after shooting at an incredible pace prior. Still shooting an 62% EFG and have an offensive rating of 110.

Thunder have not allowed a corner 3 since the first time out and the Jazz are 3 of 17 on above the break 3 point shots they are now just 14 of 54 on above the break 3 in the series.

When Steven Adams got his 3rd foul the Thunder lead the game 39-29. By halftime the Jazz lead 58-53. Adams goes out with his 4th foul and the Jazz lead it 65-63. What happens next?

Utah Jazz are on a 11-2 run all without Donovan Mitchell. Jazz lead it 82-70. Billy Donovan going back to Steven Adams who has 4 fouls, the Thunder are +4 with Adams on the floor

Thunder going without Westbrook, George and Anthony down 12 with 2:10 left.

Crowd chanting “Rubio, Rubio, Rubio” after he nails a 3 at the horn and the Jazz lead it by 14 – 89-75 as we head to the 4th quarter. Rubio has 22 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists

Thunder on a 9 to 2 run — Jazz 91 to 84 with 9:46 left

Thanks to Jake Semmel for this – Jazz are 38-16 when Ingles scores more than 10 points – tonight has 21 points. When he has 5 or more assists the Jazz are 30-12 he has 4 tonight and when he has both Jazz are 22-3. Nice work tonight Mr. Ingles

5:58 left Jazz 101 Thunder 86 – Rubio is one assist short of a triple double. So all of you who had Rubio triple double before Westbrook in game 3 you have a chance.

Jazz close it out and lead the series 2 games to 1. 115-102 highlighted by Ricky Rubio who had the 3rd triple double in Jazz playoff history. The Thunder hit on 50% of threes 14 of 28 and the Jazz were up 20.

Luka Doncic and Dallas made Phoenix look like Utah and it was a bad day for Centers

Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks made the Phoenix Suns look the same way they made the Utah Jazz look. How did they do it? What does it mean for the Jazz and the Suns looking forward.

The Game 7 match-ups were a bad day for Centers in the NBA. Brook Lopez who had led the take away the rim style of NBA defense in Milwaukee had Grant Williams shooting 16 three point shots and the Celtics got the win. The Phoenix Suns #1 pick Deandre Ayton was played off the floor by the Dallas Mavericks as well as “internal” issues. Plus, the Mavericks 5 out drive offense makes it very hard for a center to defend on the perimeter.

David Locke the radio voice of the Utah Jazz and Jazz NBA Insider looks at all those options and sets the table for what the Utah Jazz can do.

The Utah Jazz are confronting a pivotal off-season. How will they proceed? One school of thought, it has run its self out and to blow it all up? What benefit does that have? From there, there are three different approaches, trying to add a home run to the already set core of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Another approach would be to move the a bunch of pieces to add pieces and add depth. The final choose would be to narrow down to one of the core pieces are re-mold the franchise with that core piece.
