Round 2, Game 1, Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers 

Post#1 » by Inigo Montoya » Mon Jun 7, 2021 9:31 am

The Clippers may be tired from a 7 game series, and I do think they have looked less than impressive. They look vulnerable.

Should be a very interesting series...... Kawhi looks very impressive though......

Mike Conley is questionable for tomorrow. Probably a game-time decision. He went through portions of practice today. The vibe I get is that he wants to play.

Serge Ibaka is doubtful with back spasms. The word seems to be that he'll miss Games 1 and 2 at least.

The Jazz just need to demoralize them from beginning to end of this game set the tone early in this series.

Expected lineups at 10am this morning. Conley is listed as "grey tossup".

Seems like we could have another situation somewhat similar to DM's situation in game one in the Memphis series, where the player wants to play, but the medical staff wants to take more time?

But this time is also different: DM was an afternoon scratch after he had already been cleared to play. I think the Jazz players had in their minds and game prep that DM was going to play, and it was a disruptive jolt when he didn't play. I am pretty sure this time around everyone understands that they might be playing game one without Conley.

On the plus side, a well rested Joe Ingles might be able to start, play higher than normal minutes and slow down Paul George's offense some with his length. Go Jazz!

Even without Conley, the Jazz really need to come out and punch the Clippers in the mouth. Let them know that their series with the Mavs was nothing compared to dealing with the Jazz's brand of ball. They have the team to do it, but the margin for error just became incredibly small. Go Jazz & get well soon, Mike!

Down by 7 after that shooting performance, generating open looks on the perimeter and letting LAC live and die by the midrange. We were ice cold, but I still feel good about this.

Quin needs to play Mitchell more. This game is why I pushed for a 3&D wing at the deadline.

Jazz are looking pretty darn rusty. Just need to settle down relax and let the game come.

I am honestly wondering if he is hurt again or on a minutes restriction, b/c why is he not in?

We need Mike so bad! He settles the team.

Exactly. Not looking good.
