Gobert and Clarkson both had big third quarters and the Jazz won every quarter through three quarters. Go Jazz!

- Tough fight all way through/
- Perfect team effort: close game, but everybody has positive +/-. Only Clarcson has 0 - still nonnegative.
- Possibly best fighting game after St-M era.

Such games add a lot to team maturity and resilience.

It has been a fight, but the Jazz are the only Western Conference playoff team with a 3-1 lead!

Let's kill it in 5 and get prepared for next teams that will be probably be more exshausted from their own battle. We need to improve our schemes to avoid so many fast break points and offensive rebounds. We need to rebound the ball much better.

We should trade him for A A Ron Gordon.

Automatic dynasty.

I am borrowing this post that I saw you made on the GB. I love having Conley's veteran leadership down the stretch. He wasn't having a huge impact on this game offensively, but then he made a big three with 5:08 left in the game to put the Jazz up by five, followed by that key block/steal on Morant and the three pointer at the 3:24 mark to put the Jazz up by seven.

I was also glad to see young Mitchell back to unrestricted minutes while Conley is down to 32 minutes. I've been crossing my fingers that Conley's hamstring issues don't resurface during these playoffs, especially when Conley was averaging 35 min/game the first three games of this series. Ideally the Jazz close out the Grizzlies on Wednesday and Conley et al. get an extra day or two off to rest and get ready for round two.

We will probably get another hard fought, close game decided in the last five minutes on Wednesday where Conley's veteran leadership can make a difference. Go Jazz!

we need 4-1 series. Will be easier for us in next round. Much needed rest.
