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.

Then Locke is joined by the Athletic’s Tony Jones to continue the talk about 5 teams in the West that could play in the play in game and also could win the West. They did into Jason Kidd and Luke Doncic and how that impacts the Dallas Mavericks. They talk about the growth of Michael Porter Jr. and the Denver Nuggets.
