Jazz Implode In Third Quarter   Leave a comment

3rd quarter total… Magic 34, Jazz 12. That wiped out a 10 point Jazz half-time lead, and that was that.
Sometime between the 16-1 start for the Magic & the Jazz first made shot attempt of the quarter, the outcome was decided. And it became obvious that this blog title describes the wrong team. Or at least that was the case last night. Oh, and the Jazz went 3-15 in the quarter, which is just pathetic. Way to settle for jumpers guys. Especially when you keep missing.

Game. Set. Match.

Jazz Host Magic Tonight   2 comments

Update: Mo Almond will be getting the start in place of Brewer. Time for him to show what he has.

This should be a good game. The Jazz come in at 15-9, having won 2 straight, including a solid, if unspectacular, win over the Blazers a couple nights back. The Magic, on the other hand, come in at 17-6, and winners of 8 of their last 10. Their most recent game, though, was a loss in Phoenix to the new-look Suns… a game in which Dwight Howard went down with some knee pains. Whether he’s playing or not will have a huge impact in the way this game goes.

Links & Things & stuff like that…

  • Third Quarter Collapse would like some revenge after ‘Sap destroyed the Magic in Orlando last year. I’ll admit, I don’t know many other teams that would rather see the All-Star & ‘Olympian’ than the normal back-up.
  • As expected, Booze will be out tonight. Also out will be Ronnie Brewer, who is attending the funeral of his aunt. AK, Korver & Almond are possibilities to get the start, though I wouldn’t count out Knight or Price either, knowing J-Slow.
