Thunder 7 Jazz 6 with 6:54 left in the 1st quarter
Clear these teams know each other and what they want to do.
Paul George last 10 games is shooting 35% and 25% from three
Russell Westbrook last 10 games scoring 32 points a game, 47% from field and 38% from three

Thunder 26 Jazz 21 with 10:00 2nd quarter
Have a feeling the Ingles/Favors pick and roll may have run its course. Teams are defending Joe differently with the ball and he is having a tough time getting into the pick with Favors to have that play develop, NBA Scouting is awesome

The NBA has either no idea what a call is or know exactly what they are doing – Offense wins
Royce O’Neale fouled Paul George on fastbreak
Paul George shoved off on Thabo Sefolosha on a drive
Steven Adams just forearmed Gobert out of the way to get a hook
Calls all went to Offense

Donovan fouled driving to the basket will not count as shot attempts so the Last 9 Jazz shots a threes (2 for 9)
and 10 of last 11

Paul George is 1 for 6 tonight. Last 10 games – 35% FG and 25% 3p
He does this once a month each year
March 2018 38% and 29%
Feb 2017 39% and 33% from three
Dec 2015 37% and 36% from three

Thunder 53 Jazz 43 with 9:59 left in 3rd quarter
Jazz way back in this game is making threes. 6 of 27

Thunder 58 Jazz 51 with 5:49 in the 3rd quarter
Jazz making a bit of a surge
Went on a 13-3 run.
2nd half Donovan is stirring. 6 pts in the quarter
Rudy Gobert with 10 points in the quarter -15 in the game

Thunder 77 Jazz 63 End of 3
Thunder this year with a 10 point lead in the 4th quarter are 34-0
The Utah Jazz are 1-20 when trailing by 10 in the 4th

Thunder 80 Jazz 70 with 9:50 left
Jazz really miss Ricky Rubio tonight
In last two games v. Thunder Jazz pick and roll with Rubio was 1.28 pts per play. With Ingles was .89 and with Mitchell .78
It shows tonight

Thunder 89 Jazz 80
Jazz defense has been great . Jazz defensive rating under 100

Thunder 98 Jazz 89
Jazz offense couldn’t get it going.
13 of 43 from three
Jazz 3 of 14 on mid range shots
Anything higher than the 6th seed would take something really extraordinary.

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.
