Magic 22 Jazz 7 with 5:21 left in the 1st quarter
Awful start by the Jazz. Missing defensive assignments and the offense is doing exactly what the Magic want them to do. They are staying on shooters and sagging in the paint and Jazz are talking mid range shots. Jazz 3 of 11

Magic 42 Jazz 21 with 8:46 left in the 2nd quarter
By far the worst the Jazz have looked all season. Just dead on both sides of the ball and the Magic are rolling
Magic haven’t lost a 20 point lead this season and the Jazz haven’t come back from down 20 this season

Magic 47 Magic 34 with 4:37 left in the 2nd quarter
Jazz on a 10-2 run sparked by Jae Crowder
Jazz will need to put the ball in the hand of Donovan Mitchell tonight otherwise getting no advantage

Magic 72 Jazz 60 with 6:21 left in the 3rd quarter
Jazz have had 4 chances to get the game to 10 and have not been able to convert. Magic starting to miss shots keeping Jazz in the game

Jazz 76 Magic 75 with 1:19 in the 3rd quarter
Unreal – 30-12 run in the quarter
23-3 run and the Magic basket is a DJ Augustin prayer at the shot clock
Donovan started this and then Neto and the crew have carried the mo.

Jazz 78 Magic 75 end of 3rd quarter
Magic have 1 field goal (the prayer) for the final 8:27 of the 3rd quarter
Neto was great in 3rd quarter
Rudy a beast.
Incredible run 25-3 to close the quarter

Jazz 90 Magic 86 with 6:14 left in the 4th quarter
Listening to @lockedonmagic today the conversation was about how much Magic struggle without Augustin and Vucevic on the floor. They should be returning for the final 6:14. Both are + tonight

Jazz 106 Magic 93 Final Score
235 times this year a team has trailed by 20 and this is 10th time a team has come back to win
Donovan Mitchell had 16 in the 4th quarter – 33 points tonight for the 5th time this year – did it 7 times all of last year
2nd half – Jazz 60 Magic 30

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.
