The First half was ugly as the Jazz shot 38% and only scored a total of 37 points. With 1:47 left in the first half and down 17 the Jazz proceeded to go on a 9-0 run to cut the lead to 10 at the half. With 35 seconds left Sloan put in Ronnie Price which was strange but Price got a steal and an assist to Brewer on a dunk that got the crowd back into the game.
The Jazz started the second half on a 8-0 run to cut the Nuggets lead to two. The charge was lead by Brewer and Miles who both had ten points in a 36 point third quarter that can be seen here.
The ESA was the loudest it has been since the Lakers win. I can't really explain how different the two halves looked from the Fan perspective.

My Thoughts from the ESA and then from the rerun.
Jerry Sloan is doing an amazing job coaching the Utah Jazz to wins. He has left players in when they are hot and pulled players when the energy is not there. Examples just from tonight.
Ronnie Price plays 35 seconds to bring some energy to the team.
Deron Plays 43 minutes including the entire second half.
Miles Plays the entire third quarter and finished it off with two straight threes.
Jerry is making the decisions right now to win.
I hope the guy who sat in front of us during the game finished the night off with some action. He bought ten beers and two tickets for 30-40 bucks a piece and had to bust out the I.D. to the ESA alcohol police.
This was the biggest home comeback in 10 years.
The Bear only came on the floor once tonight late in the fourth quarter and climbed a huge ladder with stilts on and the get loud sign.
Ronnie Brewer's reverse layup at the seven minute mark in the third was ridiculous. He jumps from the left side of the paint all the way to the other side of the floor, ridiculously sick.
Dante Jones is a punk and D-Will would have punked him. I will try and get some video from ESPN of the headbutt incident. If you watched the game you may have seen it, it happened at the end of the third quarter just before Miles hit his two threes.
George Carl, gave up trying to win with two and half minutes left in the game down seven. Thank You.
Jerry Sloan quote of the night, "They stroked us a few times and we started standing", in his pre fourth quarter interview.
Jazz have played solid Defense in four straight games late in the game is this a sign of things to come. We will see. -S
