    With the Jazz being off for a couple days I thought I'd share a true story.

    So watching the Miami game remind me of the time the Jazz beat LeBron James a couple years ago when Kyle Kover made that shot from behind the backboard and then at the end of the game Sundiata Gaines hit the game-winning shot!!

    So watching the end off that Game with great anticipation when Gaines nailed that shot I immediately jumped up off my couch freaking out and began throwing off my clothes!! My wife, after also celebrating, finally looked over at me and saw that I was buck naked celebrating the jazz is amazing Victory!!!

    Anyone else have awesome embarrassing Jazz stories???

    I admit it - I'm one of the dumbasses that shut that game off. The game ran past 1am Eastern Time. I shut the game off in disgust with about 40 seconds to go.

    I didn't know the score until about 9:30 AM the next day when I went to check the box score online at work - I literally did a triple take when I saw The Jazz won the game.

    I was even worse. I shut the game off and didn't even read about the NBA the next couple of days. Imagine my surprise when, based on my previous viewing history, Youtube recommended something titled "Sundiata Gaines game-winner against the Cavs."

    I think if Sundiata Gaines had a threesome with Kate Upton and Scarlett Johansson, while being inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, it wouldn't top how he must've felt here.

    Also, I love that if you carefully watch the video, everyone in the arena(including both teams) are watching the ball in the air with trepidation, Memo puts his hands up in the air and starts walking away the moment the ball leaves Gaines' hands. "Yeah, that's going in."

    Everything had to be perfect to even make it possible: Ronnie's 3-pointer, Anthony Parker's missed FT, Korver's shot, Z's missed FT, busted play leaving Gaines with an incredibly tough shot. I can't remember what happened after Ronnie's 3 and before Kyle's shot.

    What a fantastic game that was. I was laying sick in the bed and it must have been over 7 am in Norway when Gaines hit that game winner. That game just had it all: Injuries (Did Deron go down?), foul outs (Boozer?), an insane showing from LeBron in the fourt - and of course, the game winner. As I said in a thread I created after the Spurs win a couple of weeks ago, these are the proud moments that makes me a Jazz-fan.

    True but... Korver's shot was amazing and gets lost due to the game winning shot!!
