The Utah Jazz are looking to sweep the 3 game for the 2010-2011 series. The Jazz won the first contest 109-107 (OT) on Nov 6th and the second meeting on Nov. 28th 109-97.
Match up of the Night
Blake Griffin Against the World.
Utah Jazz fan here talking about how much fun this kid is to watch. He will get his 20th DD in a row tonight, especially cause the Utah Jazz are struggling to rebound the basketball. The questions is whether or not the Utah Jazz can stop him from getting a 20-20 game. Seriously though He may out rebound both Millsap and Jefferson. I think Millsap will recover from his 3 rebound performance against the Trailblazers, but him and Jefferson have to figure something out.
The Clippers have won 5-6 of six and Griffin is playing out of this world with 19 straight DD's, he leads the league in dunks, and he goes to the line fifth most in the NBA.
In fact, the Clippers have two of the top ten players with the most FTA on the year, Griffin @5th and Gordon @8th they account for 58% of the Clippers total free throws.
This causes problems for the Utah Jazz. We foul a lot and in turn it slows down the pace and rhythm of the game.
This looks like it could be the time of year when AK's back goes out. This causes some major problems for the Jazz rotation, and the how Jerry Sloan uses the bench. Generally when a player is going to be out for a couple of games,Jerry will just pull some one not in the rotation in that players spot. Example, earlier this year when Bell was out and Gordon Hayward got the start. What if this is more than a couple of games though and you have to put CJ as a starter screwing up both the starting five and the second unit when they come in. It is bad enough that they are adjusting to Memo coming back, this will just compound the problem.
This will also lead to more minutes for Gordon Hayward, so instead of maybe 12 minutes which he has gotten the past few games he may move all the way up to 18-20 minutes a night. I don't necessarily think that this is a bad thing, I just think that this is not a good situation for a team that is trying to find some sort of consistency. A positive from this is we will get to see more Hayward and possibly more Evans.
The century mark again.
The Clippers are 1-15 when allowing 100 point and the Utah Jazz are 16-1 when scoring 100 points. If we score 100 point we win.
Jazz 94 Clippers 91
You have probably seen this before but Deron and Baron are good friends this is something that they did a few years back
