My favorite form of escapism, well next to tennis, TV and guitar at least. :p
Gotta keep collecting Ws in preparation for the Lakers on Monday.

Houston won a game it shouldn't have last night. Winner of this Jazz/Thunder game will win the season series and tie-break between the two teams.

I'm hoping Miami can beat Denver in the first game and the Jazz can pull out a win today. Gobert needs to dominate Adams.

Well, Gobert will be sufficiently distracted by OKC’s guards. We have a terrible time disrupting/containing them on the perimeter. And Paul does us really dirty in the mid-range. I don’t like this matchup for us very much.

Is it an advantage that the Jazz have already played a game? Or advantage Thunder because they are so fresh?

OKC two point favorites. It was the same with the Pelicans. Vegas hates the Jazz.

We should expect a Bogey Effect in the betting lines and general speculations.

But OKC is also a legit tough out for us, regardless

Paul kills us. Hopefully conleys can use his quickness to stay in front of him.

Wonder who Roberson will guard. Think he will be on Donovan?

Damn, that might be rough.
Hopefully going against Royce in practice has made then used to going against an elite defensive wing.

I’m most worried about their bench vs ours. I don’t think we can defend at a high enough level. But I guess this is true for almost every matchup.
