It's a pity one of the best playoffs series ever from a jazz player is in august. Donovan deserves a lot of Credit, as Conley, Gobert and Clarkson. Really awesome.

I'm quite sure they buried the hatchet already.

I just love how ruthless Quin is in playoff matchups. It puts a tear of happiness in my eye watching us targetting MPJ and Jokic time after time after time .... just relentless. There is no "lets give it a break a bit and try something else". It's just non-stop barrage and hammering it down until they take them off the floor... and then he finds the next matchup and destroys it too.

Nate Duncan mentioned something else the other day that went somewhat unnoticed too - you know how we have been matching Gobert's minutes with Jokic pretty much exclusively. Take a look at what Quin did in the 4th quarter here(with the Jazz leading by 8). With 8:30 to go both Mitchell and Gobert(and Jokic) are off the floor taking a break. And this time Quin doesn't wait for Malone to get Jokic back in the game, he goes for the kill and puts both Mitchell and Gobert in against Denver's scrubs. Now in the grand scheme of things it didn't matter because it forced Malone to get Jokic in on the next stoppage of play, but I loved the attitude here.
