Jordan/Griffin/Speights 47 rebounds >>>>>>>>>> Favors/JJ/Diaw 22 rebounds (2 gms)

How is this going to change and after Clippers big 3 had quality games in game 2 and slowdown the momentum gained by the Clippers.

Maybe it has already been posted here somewhere, but Burks has an issue with his left knee. Yesterday he got a PRP (platelet rich plasma) injection in his left knee.

It is about time we start hacking Jordan, no more dunks hack him every time he gets in the game. Bolomboy has 6 fouls to give

I agree with Lava on this, hack a Jordan should start tonight. Besides disrupting their offense it really pisses Jordan off and I can see him going crazy (additional fouls and technicals).

Hayward leaves Moute in corner. Play Bolomboy at PF so he can shift into position on PNR and Favs can go out and defend CP3. If CP3 lobs the ball Bolomboy needs to grab Deandre and not let him get in the air. Foul hard and early. Clog paint and force Blake to shoot jumpers.

It's worth a shot. Without Rudy I don't see many other options.

On offense we need to swing from side to side and hope we get hot from 3. ISO Crawford and get Joe to pass out when the defense collapses.

If Rivers returns go ISO on him early and find out if he is physically/mentally ready. If he looks vulnerable attack him and get him pissed off.

Also, I have no idea if it would work.....

But putting Joe at the 5 and running a lineup of Hill, Hood, Hayward, Ingles, Joe might be worth it. Especially in the mins DeAndre sits. I don't think this is a long term idea that could work, but in short bursts playing 5 out might screw with their defense.

I wonder if the Clippers will ever figure out how to play against us in this series. They have been very unconvincing even in their win. They just don't look like a team that clamp down and run away with the game--they keep letting the Jazz hang around even though they have such a big advantage on us. They've been underwhelming thus far, though it is not that surprising given how they performed in the playoffs in the past few seasons.

I had the same thought. The game should not have been that close. If Joe hit that open 3, Boris takes his open 3 that turned into a turnover, and the blatant non called foul on the Hayward 3 and it's a damn close game. If the game gets down to the last few possessions that's where the Jazz have a shot. The pressure is on the Clips to perform.

Despite Gobert being out and some of our rebounding and interior defense woes, there is a very glass half full out-look to this series so far. I'm still shocked the Clippers don't have 2 blow out wins. Especially playing at home. Here's hoping they still under preform and the Jazz take this game. Even more so since I'll be at the game.

This would be a great time for Rodney to break out to rain down some threes. He shoots 44.8% from three at home versus 37.7% on the road, and he is overdue for a game with a hot hand!

The Jazz fans are killing it right now. I can barely hear the announcers..also really glad to see Hayward back, this isn't just a big step for the series but it will be a good stepping stone for him in the playoffs years to come.

Jingles did a nice job on Paul, but as soon as Mack came in, Paul started getting it going. :banghead:
