With 6:01 left in the game Al Jefferson hit a bucket that put the wolves up 89 -80. I thought the Jazz were done and starting having panic attacks about the thought of another road loss especially to the peskywolves.
The Jazz went on a mini 4-0 run and then the T-wolves called a timeout.
T-Wolves then went on a little run of their own and the Jazz looked headed for a loss with the score 87-94 Minny.
Kevin Love then proceeded to miss 4 straight free-throws and the Jazz went on a 8-0 run capped by a 3 from Korver seen in the highlight link below.
The Wolves then came down and hit two free throws putting them up one point which was then f followed by Memo's Clutch Kung- Fu Jumper seen here.
I'm giving a name to the "I'm going to kick you in the crotch, slow motion, smooth as butter , don't mess with the fauxhawk goatee combo, Turkish delight jumper" that Memo shoots 3-5 times a game when his defender bites on the pump fake but help cuts of the lane. It is called the Kung-Fu Jumper, look for it on Thursday you will see Prizbilla, and Alldrege get it in their mug at least once each.
With 1.7 On the clock Brewer made a key deflection and D-Will got the steal and hit two free throws to seal the deal.
NBATV interviewed Boozer tonight he said he is will be back this week he doesn't know if it will be Thursday or Saturday. He also talked about how D-Will is still playing a little hurt.
Huge win tonight. We pick up a game on Portland that lost a freaking crazy game in the last up 108-100 with one minute and change left and Orlando hit three straight threes including one at the buzzer to win the game. Who cares, they lost right.
We talked about this in the podcast on Sunday, but the Jazz in the past two games on the road have shown some grit and fire. Down seven with about 3 minutes left the Jazz pulled there crap together and won the game. As a fan is frustrating to watch them do this for two reasons. One, why can't you push the pedal down all the time, and two why do we have to be losing to get the fire.
D-Will seems to be getting blocked with more regularity this year, I know his ankle is not 100% but I can't tell a difference when he elevates we will see.
In case you didn't know tonight was Jerry Sloan's 20th year of coaching the Jazz, If you are a true Utah Jazz fan I would highly highly recommend reading these few articles. J.A. Andade and TrueHoop
