27 December 2010
I really have to give the Trailblazers credit for sticking it to the Jazz last night. Deron seemed to be the only one who wanted to play last night putting up 31-6. Millsap and Jefferson were a combines 10-24, scoring 22 points and only pulling down 12 rebounds combined. Millsap didn't have a rebound in the first half. The matchup that we said to look at (Millsap and Aldridge) was dominated by Aldridge, which makes me wonder why they didn't use him more in the first half. Aldridge finished with 26 and 7. Camby had 12 rebounds before leaving the game with an ankle sprain, which led to the best tweet of the night.
I really do feel bad for them, hopefully he misses less than a week or so.
Gradually got worse as the night went on, mostly because the Blazers defense got better.
27, 20, 19, 15 going into the final two minutes when Deron decided to go nuts. At the 2 minute mark in the fourth the Utah Jazz only had 3 field goals.
Ak and Deron day to day
Ak is having back problems again, the same problems that have had him missing games over the past 4 years in 5-10 game stretches. Deron is listed as day-to-day we will keep an eye on this.
Random T.V. comment of the night.
Matt Harpring described Wesley Matthews as having "his pants on the ground", after Deron crossed him over, Bolerjack was speechless. Literally.
Hayward in the Fourth
I personally believe that Jerry Sloan is sending a message to other players, not showing confidence in Hayward. Obviously this is just my opinion.
