    Jazz are good and better than I thought.

    i'm still not counting the clippers out, but the jazz are just a far better all around team compared to dallas where it was luka doing all the work. i was 100% confident the clips would come back and win the dallas series, but i'm not so confident about this one

    Yeah, I agree.

    I like the way the Jazz are constructed and the way they matchup with the Clips.

    But we shall see.

    Nothing else to see. Jazz in 5. Clackers don't match up well against them.

    Bad day for the Cameroon and Congo. Siakam is out for all of next year due to torn labrum.

    Anybody know what the actual problem was with Ibaka’s back? Guess we all know he will be picking up his option for next year though.

    yeah, he's done. should take that PO and retire. they should have kept trez at the same price instead of trying to scapegoat their backup big for their stars not delivering.

    Conserved...load managed? Commentators pointed out that Bogdanovic is making Leonard give up the ball. Leonard asserted himself here and there but not as much. Expect him to go harder the next two.

    Maybe Utah will do the same with Mitchell who is a bit nicked up too.

    i haven't seen the games, but i asked my dad how leonard isn't taking every single important shot like he did in the dallas series. never would have guessed bogdanovic was why.

    Bogdanovic was really good in Indiana: he was able to stay with Lebron on defense and the ability to shoot and some of the dribble stuff makes him real valuable in this league

    reggie jackson's probably been the clippers' third best player in the postseason so far. he's on a vet min, and they only have early bird rights. which is interesting.

    The Jazz are playing well together. No superstars really, but they have several really good players and the chemistry is off the charts. You know when the guys really know how to play together? That's Utah Jazz for you.

    A Jazz vs Suns WCF would be really fun to watch and of course eff the Clippers.

    Honestly was hoping Kuzma could become what he has become but he's just so inconsistent.
    Not sure why he can't but my unified common theory with him he just doesn't have enough strength in the lower body and core to consistently be able to keep his balance on his jumpers and defense. Bojan just seems like he takes the blows by Kawhii and James type and absorb the hits when he's on them

    Well, for one, Bojan is stronger, he's more experienced too, and also his BB IQ is higher than Kuzma's.
