The Triple Team! 3 thoughts on
1. Jazz had some unforced perimeter defensive errors tonight, and I really wish they’d clean that up.
2. Smallball was sloppy, but I hope they play more of it
3. OKC was so focused on Donovan, I liked how he moved the ball.

Five takeaways from Thunder-Jazz, another game in which Josh Giddey dazzled in his old point guard role: oklahoman.com/story/sports/2…11:44 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
The @Utah Jazz got big performances late from Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert to earn their win over the @Oklahoma City Thunder.
Plus, I asked Quin Snyder why he’s moved Trent Forrest into the rotation during the first half of games.

Davion Mitchell is going right at CJ McCollum. – 10:37 PM

Quin Snyder said he felt the 1Q was as good as the Jazz have played all season offensively, but that the ball simply didn’t go in on good shots. Said that was the type of execution that should have yielded a 15- or 20-point lead. – 10:35 PM

That was a super fun game. OKC played with some awesome effort and energy, and Josh Giddey showed some impressive competitive juice as the primary playmaker with SGA out. And another huge two-way game from Lu Dort (27 points, 5-12 from 3). – 10:24 PM

Jazz win 110-104 in OKC. It was quite sloppy, but the Jazz ended up doing just enough to get the victory. Probably would have preferred not to play Gobert 40 minutes, though.
Gobert: 15 points, 17 rebs, 5 blocks.
Clarkson, very good game: 20 points, 5 assists.

Jazz now up 105-101 with 40 seconds left, and will either have the ball or give up 2 FTs, depending on this coaches challenge. Original call was offensive foul on Dort — I don’t think it’ll be overturned. – 10:16 PM

Jazz get a five-point lead again with five minutes left to go. Rudy Gobert stole it, drove the length of the floor, and had a Eurostep lead to a dunk. – 10:05 PM

It looks like Donovan Mitchell isn’t moving very well on one of his ankles.
Took that hard shot from Dort early in the game and just hasn’t looked like he has any confidence in his first step. – 10:03 PM

Lu Dort is absolutely on fire, hitting 3s and bodying Rudy Gobert at the rim.
Dort has 23 points, a game high for both teams. – 9:35 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl is 3-of-3 from three tonight. Now 22-of-55 (40%) for the season.
JRE was a 30% 3-point shooter in two seasons at Villanova. – 9:34 PM

Giddey has understandably been deterred by Gobert at the rim.
Dort is just honey badgering out there. – 9:34 PM

Giddey deservedly gets all the buzz… but Robinson-Earl has been fantastic lately, especially considering he is a 2nd round rookie. – 9:14 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Lu Dort and 2X All Star Donovan Mitchell are matched up tonight.
Halftime stats:
Dort: 13 points on 3-6 shooting
Mitchell: 7 points on 3-10 shooting (5 of those 7 points were when Dort wasn’t defending him) – 9:11 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Halftime: Thunder 52, Jazz 49. Giddey’s desperation 3 at the buzzer improbably goes in to break the tie. Offense is still pretty bad (37.2% FGs, 26.9% on 3s), and the transition defense wobbled a bit again in 2Q. Whiteside ejection looms large with the perimeter D so leaky. – 9:10 PM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz

Thunder up 52-49 on the Jazz at the half. Dort has 13, Giddey 9. Jazz are somehow just 2-14 from corner 3 so far. – 9:10 PM
Royce Young @royceyoung
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl is really impressive switching onto guards and defending in isos. Did really well against Harden a couple weeks ago, and moved his feet really well against Donovan Mitchell. – 9:10 PM

On that Bazely take to the rim, the Jazz played that perfectly. Switched at the very last second on the handoff to Gobert under the rim. That’s how they want to handle this more often – 8:58 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
That Giddey dunk was the first of his career. – 8:55 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Bogey taking that unnecessary sidestep is kinda emblematic of the offense this year — so much out of rhythm. That said, the subsequent defensive possession, wherein everyone parted like the Red Sea, was demonstratively worse. 37-36 Thunder. – 8:54 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Josh Giddey checks in and 10 seconds later finds Kenrich Williams for a bucket under the basket: OKC’s first bucket in almost 5 minutes.
Two possessions later, Giddey’s breakaway dunk gets the biggest ovation of the night. – 8:54 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
This is some horrific perimeter D from the Jazz in the smallball lineup — this is probably why Quin didn’t even try smallball vs. LAC – 8:54 PM

Great stat from @NBA_AU:
Josh Giddey, LaMelo Ball and LeBron James are the only teenagers in NBA history to reach 100 assists and 100 rebounds in their first 20 games. – 8:45 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Remember that scene in Searching for Bobby Fisher when Ben Kingsley makes Josh look at the chess board without any pieces to teach him the game.
I think that’s how Trent Forrest learned to play basketball because that guy NEVER looks at the basket. He’s never trying to score. – 8:45 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Jazz on an 11-0 run…finally started getting some stops and making shots on the other end of the floor. Went from down 8 to up 32-29 – 8:44 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 1Q: Thunder 25, Jazz 21. Not the greatest of starts for Utah. 9-28 FGs, 3-16 from 3. But at least turnovers, transition defense, and defensive rebounding haven’t been glaring issues. – 8:37 PM

Lots of uncertainty exists as far as who is a go and who’s out on Thanksgiving eve. It sound like LeBron is in, AD is OUT and Darius Garland is good to go. SGA is OUT for OKC, which makes me giddy about a certain rookie’s assist + rebound prop. From @WagerTalk #NBA Tip-Off Show: pic.twitter.com/mXjFeAZCVl6:37 PM

Mark Daigneault says SGA is progressing and wouldn’t rule out Friday or Monday for his return, but thinks it may be just after that. Says it’s nothing long term.
“I just saw him in the hallway, jogging to the court. We’re obviously playing the long game.” – 6:36 PM

Mark Daigneault said there’s a chance SGA (right ankle sprain) is back Friday or Monday, but it doesn’t sound likely.
Daigneault said it’s nothing too serious, but that they’re playing “the long game.” – 6:36 PM

After #Lakers loss to Knicks, Shaquille O’Neal said if they “keep playing like this,” thinking they can flip switch, they’ll either be 8th in West and “get blown out” by Golden State or 7th and have same results versus Utah.
So is he saying #Suns won’t finish 1st or 2nd in West? pic.twitter.com/qOsDJ6OgtS4:04 PM

Have enjoyed looking around @Shot_Quality. Looks like the Kings are the NBA’s ‘process but not results’ league leaders right now. Top-10 in shot quality and rim + 3s rate, but only 6-12 so far. Rockets and Thunder are 3rd and 4th in rim + 3s rate. – 2:59 PM
