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.
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.
