Jazz 116 - Warriors 112
133rd Straight Jazz Home Game
(Preseason, Regular Season and Playoffs)
so, i was thinking on my way home tonight about all the visiting team's fans saying there is nothing to do in Salt Lake.. i thought of something that never gets old.. watching the Jazz beat down on your crappy city's basketball team!
tonight's game was pretty exciting.. the Jazz were given a pretty loud ovation, though the boos against the warriors were not near as what they were against the rockets.. the jazz jumped to an early 10 point lead, but Golden State quickly got the game close again with a barrage of three pointers.. man, they are a great three point shooting team..
i thought we turned the ball over way too many times tonight trying to get it inside when there were just too many defenders nearby.. we can't do that against the Warriors with how fast they are.. i hope we can get a handle on that for Wednesday night's game.. and let's get some guys defending the three point line.. i guess it's been like that all season, so no surprise now.. at least we won..
memo was hot early from downtown getting the crowd into the game early.. he cooled off a bit, but made the ones that counted for us.. no fisher tonight... i read he's out with some family issues he'll be attending to.. Collins and Hafa got zero minutes, but it was good to see Brewer get in for a few.. i like that kid..
the Jazz kept it close and ended up pulling out the win in the 4th quarter, starting it down by 5 points.. great team play in the end give us a 1-0 series lead.. as they say, a series doesn't start until a team wins on the road.. we've got some important games coming up..
it's late and i'm tired so i'm going to keep this recap short.. see you on Wednesday night for Game 2..
i believe too, believe they should go back to Oakland..
