This is going to be a rough game for us.


With all that BS & Jazz hot shooting Memphis only down 11. They going to have to beat the officials in this one too.

If we are under 10 in the 3rd we have a good shot.

Morant playing flustered, can't blame him..

Still hoping someone opens a real league so I don't have to watch this fake ****.

This game is brutal. Melton has been awful all playoffs and I liked him during the regular season. The defense is awful.

Jazz got endless momentum calls that built to their hot 3pt shooting. Jazz were going to be tough without the officials but to get 3 of your starters cheaply fouled out is too much for the young squad.

They ensuring the 10pt spread.

Note to self in the offseason though: we need some key free agents to build a better bench. The guys came through last game, but I'm not sold.

This young team is something else, Jazz are hot from 3 & they are getting absolutely **** by the officiating & they making a game of it.

3J help defense bailing Jonas out. He's playing well which is good to see.

They are just extremely mentally tough. Ja is getting in the lane at will, as he should with his level of athleticism. Brooks has been a bucket all playoffs.

If people can't see the BS officiating they either blind or **** stupid.

Brooks on the bench 3 rows deep saw Favors pull down Jonas on a made bucket that should have been an & 1..

Memphis within 5.

That was a rookie foul by Bane. You can't leave your arm extended. Ja needs some help here. His legs are going to be shot. He can't take any jumpers. Melton and Bane need to be threats. Or Kyle needs to hunt his shot.

Bane looked straight up & down to me, can't say 100%, they cut the replay footage, lol

It wasn't an obvious foul, but they give you those kinds of fouls when the shooter initiates contact in the playoffs. I'm not concerned by this. I just don't see how we can sustain this momentum without someone else besides Morant putting the Jazz on their heals. This is about as impressive as Ja can play and he is not getting help, with the exception of Brooks at times.

Our pick and roll D is awful though. Gobert is a non-threat on offense and we are making him look good. We need to adjust - they are countering on offense and finally scoring easy buckets.
