Don't bother with Dutch. Win or Lose the only thing he's rooting for is for Al to have a bad game.
Anyway I'll probally have the Millsap highlights up by tomorrow morning.
The thing about running a play in that time, what if the play gets the player an open shot, but 3 seconds are left? He makes a 2 pointer, then the Spurs come down a nail a 3 on us? You have to make sure you get the very last second shot, and the easiest way to do that is with an iso.
Great game. I was critical of Hayward on Sunday for his 1 rebound performance. My guess is the coaching staff got after him too, or his girlfriend was in town again last night because he looked terrific. The Spurs shut him down in the playoffs so it was double good to see him do well.
Kudos to Jefferson for taking that charge, Blair is not a small man. I'm okay with Al joking about it after the game.
Good call by Coach Ty, Mo wins it or it goes to overtime. Maybe Ty is learning clock management and end of game scenarios.
The NBA, where the Championship Trophy is awarded in June, but won in July.
Regarding the Issues with Al - i think that charge he took from blair was great. Blair "malone'd" him by just running him over. Give Big Al some huge credit for that. A number of games ago, i was trying to focus on big Al's D. And he is showing MUCH better on PnR D than ever before. I think he now truly believes he doesn't have to save him self as the only offensive weapon on the team. Mark this down and watch if going forward. Big Al had a good game.
Regarding Hayward- it appears that he's been asked to "just play ball man" and it is ok to shoot when you touch it. Since he's been coming of the bench he's bordered on chucker territory - because the coach has told him to - to help him realize his potential. he get's blocked a lot at the rim. So what. He's been been at it aggressively now for a while. And Playing a playoff-level game, performing well and winning last night helped GH a lot - but it came as a result of the last 10 or so of him letting loose.
Some sort of magic elixir was put in the Jazz'z pregame meals a few games ago. The first of the season, there was near-zero offensive flow. Now, it is fun to watch and fun to cheer for. Because we like to draw conclusions from one variable, i'll just say it appears to have occurred when Favors went out. It must be DF the black hole.
Maybe Mo is the leader we needed after all.
Pop sure threw Danny Green under the bus. Maybe we can trade Roger Braille for him.
