Focusing On The Positives   6 comments

Well, all the Lakers fans, after whining their asses off during & after Games 3 & 4, came back in full strength after Game 5, asking us (as bloggers/fans) why we didn’t quit our whining (because obviously only they can do the whining) and win (because obviously we play for the Jazz &/or otherwise control whether they win or lose). So then… let’s focus on the positives coming from Game 5, shall we?

Jazz Even Series At 2 In OT Thriller   Leave a comment

Not much more to ask for, considering that the Jazz came home down 2-0. Two home wins, sending the series back to LA tied (so much for a sweep, eh Lakers fans?), and guaranteeing at least a Game 6 at the ESA. Knowing that the Jazz have to get at least one game in LA if they hope to move on, I really hope that it’s Game 5 and not a potential Game 7.

The officiating, which has been so bad in the playoffs, was generally good during the game… the decision to toss Ronny Turiaf might’ve been a bit much, but other than that… In the end, after a disappointing Lakers’ comeback late (down 12 with 3 minutes to go, tie it up and force OT), the Jazz took over in the OT.

Jazz Win Despite Refs Best Efforts   5 comments

Closet Jazz fan???

I’m really trying to avoid bringing the refs into this. I promise. But the game today was just plain and total crap.

I mean, I could go into many (good?) things…

  • Booze finally showed up. He got himself 20 & 20, and even shot above 50% from the field. He had a couple of huge shots late, before a Jazz time-out. After that, the Jazz didn’t go back to him until there were like 3 seconds left in the game.
  • Deron had 18 & 12. He had a couple of big shots late. He took a hard fall in the 2nd, and was icing his wrist whenever on the bench after that.
  • Okur was 4-7 from long range, and finished with 22 & 7. And he had a big shot late as well.
