Prayers up to @Jamal Murray
One thing I think Jazz/Wizards showed: I don't think the Jazz will be able to rest guys piecemeal, because their replacements in the rotation aren't capable of taking on high or average usage.
Like tonight, no MC or JC, Mitchell had to use 41 possessions. That's too many.
For much of Monday's loss to the Wizards, the Utah Jazz looked tired. Afterward, they admitted they are tired. They also said it doesn't matter: "Washington didn’t care, and OKC’s not going to care, so we got to be able to fight through that." sltrib.com/sports/jazz/20…
I am pretty sure that Rudy tried to or maybe did punch Gafford with just under two minutes to play in the third quarter...
Sending positive vibes your way @Jamal Murray 🙏🏽
