The Triple Team! 3 thoughts on
1. The history of the Jazz's terrible 3-point shooting against the Rockets
2. Gobert can stay closer to Russ without sacrificing the rim
3. The Jazz played 14 zone poss. tonight, only 4 before that all year. How they'd do?
Quin Snyder: “In the third quarter, we didn’t have the same energy we needed on the defensive end. We didn’t get our hands on balls, we didn’t get deflections. We fouled once, which tells you a little bit about our (lack of) aggressiveness.” pic.twitter.com/ditFbolt8e
STORY: Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to level up and be decisively great. While Joel Embiid declared himself the best player in the world, Giannis did what he's done all season in another dominating performance. espn.com/nba/story/_/id…
Rudy Gobert: “It’s on us to ... push each other so that even when we get tired, we raise our level and raise our focus. Communication — even when you’re tired, you should be able to talk; it doesn’t take much energy to move your lips. We can do better at that for sure.” pic.twitter.com/FpbQFk5DKH
Donovan Mitchell: “Against that Team, you gotta be locked in. ... You can play hard, but you gotta play smart as well. I think that’s something we did a good job of, but we had lapses. That was the biggest thing.” pic.twitter.com/E0DdWGq4kP
Donovan Mitchell: “We had a few slippages, and that leads to them hitting 3s, (us) missing rotations. Third quarter, we came out a little stagnant — we moved the ball the first two quarters, and in the third quarter, we kind of got a little iso-like.” pic.twitter.com/T2KCdpOxNO
Mike Conley, on what changed after halftime: “Our energy was low in the third quarter. ... In the 2nd quarter, we really got the crowd involved, pushed the tempo, played defense. ... And when we came out in the 3rd quarter, we just seemed not to have that same energy.” pic.twitter.com/09wYX1FL9m
Fury is the best heavyweight boxer in the world, just too skilled.
Fury got the crowd rocking 😂
gru doing his sing a long part of the show
Can’t believe Wilder got beat like that. Smh.
He called that too early
Mike Conley: “Individually we just gotta continue to take the challenge defensively. If we’re locked in 1-on-1 it doesn’t require help on guys and rotations don’t have to happen. ... We’re not good enough to just walk into games and play lackadaisical and take possessions off.” pic.twitter.com/39EJXv35La
Fury < Shakira.
Did he just....LICK HIM??
Mike Conley: “We’re not good enough to just walk in games and play lackadaisical and take possessions off. Good teams like tonight will beat us."
gru out here trippin trippin hahah
Wow!! Fury just dropped Wilder.
Rudy Gobert, on him guarding Russell Westbrook: “I think I would do it again. I think having Russ being guarded by one of our guards is a mismatch, and at least when I’m guarding him he doesn’t get to the rim. ... We make him work, and he’s able to make those shots sometimes.” pic.twitter.com/Pa4ujMYQPQ
Love the emotion of college hoops. Amateurism is a farce, but it doesn’t get much better than Sr night vs. a college basketball powerhouse in front of a sell-out crowd. Awesome.
Great night for BYU. Happy for Mark and his staff. Well earned. Special group.

Quin Snyder: in the third quarter, we didn’t have the energy that we needed on the defensive end
I would put my chits on the Rockets as the #2 seed in the West if i had any to put on anything.
That will do it. Houston defeats the Jazz 120-110. 38 for James Harden. 34 for Russell Westbrook. Mitchell drops 31 for the Jazz but the difference in tonight is the Rockets were miles better defensively than the jazz in the competitive second half minutes.
Rockets win 120-110. They'll get the season tiebreaker. Mitchell had 31, but Harden had 38, Westbrook 34. Once again, the Jazz want no part of Houston in the playoffs.
The Jazz will drop to 36-20 on the season and will drop into the fifth spot in the western conference. Back to back losses at home off the all-star break.
To beat Houston you gotta shut one of Harden or Westbrook off somewhat.
Tonight, Harden has 36 and Westbrook 34 and they’ve done it efficiently.
Tough to beat the rockets if both are playing this well in the same game
Harden hits a 3, and Snyder takes his final timeout with Jazz down 118-108. That feels like the dagger. Mitchell's really done well in the 4th with 16 points, but the airballed three, offensive foul, and missed pull-up there means that the comeback likely falls short.
James Harden drills another 3 to put Houston up 118-108 with 2:09 to play, and Quin calls his last timeout. Houston is 20-47 from deep tonight, while Utah is 7-29.
Royce O'Neale is not the guy that can stay in the backcourt on the floor lamenting over a non-call
That’s a hell of a move by Mitchell right there
Since James Harden has joined the Rockets they are 226-4 when they have had a 15 point lead in the 4th quarter.
Lead 100-85 to start the quarter
Jazz have it down to 9
So proud of the Judge Memorial boys and girls basketball teams. We didn’t bring it home, but we were terrific in the state tournament and the future is bright!!!
Harden and D'antoni (mostly D'antoni) spent a long time arguing with the officials after the whistle. Crowd gave them an earful
Now it's D'Antoni and Harden with an inquest on the officials... big boos raining down in Vivint Arena. Crowd can't believe that their behavior hasn't been T-worthy.
Donovan Mitchell trying time will the jazz back into the game. He’s got 22 and the jazz are down 105-96 with 8:14 remaining
Refs reading Jazz twitter?
The Rockets have made 17 threes tonight.
The Jazz have made 6
End 3Q: Rockets 100, Jazz 85. Utah was outscored 38-19 in the period. Jazz shot 6-19 in the quarter, while Houston went 16-25. Both Harden and Westbrook have 30+.
The Jazz trail the Rockets 100-85 after a third quarter in which the jazz surrendered 38 points. The jazz scored 19 to counter that. Just a bludgeoning for 12 minutes. The jazz at some point are going to have to figure it out defensively.
Rockets win the quarter 38-19, doubling up the Jazz and leading 100-85. Defensive contain went out the window, then the offense once again couldn't deal with help at the rim. That's something they struggled with yesterday, too.
Jazz can do absolutely nothing with Harden right now. Easily beats the perimeter containment, gets by the second level with a eurostep, and finishes with a layup. He's up to 31p, and the Rockets' lead is 91-80 with 2:30 left 3Q. Jazz down to their last timeout.
The jazz have been manhandled in the third quarter and are down 91-80 with 2:30 remaining in the period. The jazz haven’t executed on either end of the floor and Houston has been tough and gritty and physical defensively
Rockets up 11. Conley's extremely frustrated he's not getting the same whistle as Harden. That being said: Rockets have been whistled for 5 fouls this quarter, Jazz 0.
Is it just me or is Gobert a very good roller who doesn't get enough quick passes after the pick
Was Bogey's foot on the line on that "3?"
