I have missed one out of the last 13 playoff games (the baby game) against GS last year. I was not going to miss our first Sunday home game in seven years, especially with ABC coming to join the party. I should have made a sign that said "Hi my name is Deron Williams nice to meet you". I'm glad the country got to see what Jazz fans see every night and that was D-Will getting it on.
As much money as a Boston/LA finals will make everyone, I believe a D-Will/CP3 conference final will be watched by more fans.
Ronnie Brewer- Amazing- 8 points in the first quarter with two unbelieveable alleyoops
. Ronnie got on the board fast and often while grabbing four rebounds and playing pretty good d on Kobe.
Ronnie Price- I don't know if Turiaf will be suspended for the cheap shot
he put on Price, but really, doesn't he look like he just got done with the fourth round of a boxing match. Cut me Mick. Ronnie also introduced
himself to Luke Walton on this sick, sick rejection.
Memo and AK were clutch in the fourth/OT hitting huge shots and playing lockdown D on 24. The Jazz as a team shot 82.7 % from the line, only had 13 turnovers, and the bench outscored the Lakers 34-16.
Overall I was impressed with the team play. I'm a little worried that the Lakers have come back from double digit deficits in the past two games. On the other hand the Jazz have done the same thing in L.A.
Game 5 will be much easier to steel than game 7. I could expound on that, but I think the readers of this blog know the seriousness of a game 7 in L.A.
I got my mom and wife exactly what they wanted today, a day off from the boys in Sacrament Meeting and a Jazz win. I guess I didn't get the Jazz win for them per say but it will work. -Spencer
