Jazz win and win big. Awesome game with a few lapses, but impressive
nonetheless. D-Will was AWESOME in the third, knocking down threes like they
were layups. Everyone chipped in tonight and showed we can hang with anyone
when we play together on D and play smart on offense. Go Jazz, let's take the
Houston fans.....you have a problem. Even with the refs giving the advantage to
the Rockets they still lost by 22. No excuses this time, the Rockets just plain
Jazz need 1 win to stop Rockets' momentumNiceshould
readJazz need 1 win to stop Rockets' seasonGO JAZZ
Even though the Jazz's performance was weak a couple of days ago, with the home
court advantage and a knowledge of Houston's 'good days", they will win tonight
against popular belief.
The last game shouldn't have happened at all to the Jazz. Rockets won all four
quarters. Utah won nothing. Come on Jazz!! Play like I know you can!! GO JAZZ!!!!
No tickets on TicketMaster. Enjoy another first round exit, Houston
fan. T-Mac will be crying yet again.
Sure the Jazz have the best regular season home record. But in the playoffs its
a whole different story. The Jazz are playing very weak right now because their
team is composed of weak minded players. The Rockets have the physical and
mental toughness to win the series. It's a prophetic statement when I say
Rockets will win in 7. I have no doubt in my mind that the series will end in
any other way. There are still tickets available to tonights game by
the way. Shows how little confidence Utah fans really have. None.
I happen to think they could be the Lakers. Gasolis a choker and Bryant
has never won anything on his own.
These are the kind of situations D-Will was drafted over CP3. I hope he watched
his fav movie "Gladiator" to get psyched for tonight!! Deny T-Mac again...since
he is just one of those big number regular season stars, which will be
completely forgotten over time....
Your plan for a destruction of the league to create 5 all-star teams is
ridiculous. That would completely destroy the sport, and hypothetically ruin
many state economies. (Let me explain)Sports themselves may not make
economies wealthy. But people who accept job positions often take into
consideration such things as: night life, entertainment, culture, climate, etc.
If I were considering taking a job in Phoenix or Albequerque (similar climates
and locations), I would definitely add some brownie points to Phoenix for the
entertainment factor (Suns, Cardinals, D-Backs, etc).Similarly,
businesses take things into consideration when deciding where to locate
themselves. One of those considerations is labor. They don't want to locate
themselves where people don't want to be, you don't get a big pool of applicants
to choose the best employees that way.Apply both of those on the
macro level, and placing sports teams in only the big metro areas would
potentially hurt all the rest of the states in terms of economics, real estate,
tourism, etc.In other words... Get a life and GO JAZZ!
I think your statement is dead on.As far as Kobe, yes he is
great.Can we shut the lakers down?Probably not.
It is funny to see all these Rockets fans predicting "Rockets in 7." You guys
are really going out on a limb with that prediction aren't you!
We will win tonight. Big time. Go Jazz. I'll be there, got my tickets and I'm
ready to support the team. Yay for loser, rockets fans and their
vain hope! Its pretty dumb trying to put pro-rockets comments in a Utah paper.
I wouldn't be suprised if a deluded rockets fan tries to predict the Rockets in
6! Go Jazz.
I think the season is on the line. Some of theseguys will forever more be
looked at as chokers.Does Sloan have a Knute Rockne speach in him, ifthey fall by 10 at halftime? What would he doto coax the corn to grow?
There is a an easy way to tell which Jazz team shows up tonight and it has been
this way all season. If the game opens with a Boozer jump shot then that is not
a good sign. It's Boozer's way of admitting defeat of attacking the basket and
if the Jazz trail at the end of the first quarter by 10 or more they lack the
mental toughness to come back they just give up. Dwill said it after the last
game that it is important for the Jazz to come out running the ball up the court
and attacking the basket. If they start out just running half court sets game
Game time is at 8:30 p.m. It can be seen on KJZZ and ESPN.
The NBA season is interminably long....much too long. The league greed, and the
number of games played to reach the playoffs is not productive. Sixty games is
the limit, and then every team gets in the playoffs. That will satisfy the
people who want parity. My plan for all pro leagues is to have a re-entry draft
at the end of every season, and the highest bidder gets the players. That way I
figure that New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and maybe three or four other cities
will end up being the league....eveyone else will be outbid and lose their
franchises. We will then end up with some real teams with the best players. We
could have 4 or 5 teams in each of these large cities....then this will satisfy
all the Madison Avenue/Wallstreet people who think all the influence lies in the
large cities of the country. This worldwide NBA concept that Commissioner Stern
seems to be cultivating is a joke. Who wants to see their team traveling around
the world playing in China, or in Europe. I like the NFL compensation plan the
best......you EARN the money you are paid....not just sign for $ millions, then
Memo to ???: Jazz - Rockets game time 8:30 MDT. Look at Yahoo.comI
respect Kobe and the Lakers; but who cares about what the message board Kobe's
are saying? Kobe doesn't need to prove anything; he is the best in the league
bar none. I am a Jazz fan, BUT.....the Laker - Spurs series for the Western
Conference title will be the NBA Championship as far as I am concerned. The
Jazz are not mature enough, nor do they have the weapons to contend with the
talent of either team....they are not playing like they did last year, when they
were blown out by the Spurs. They are no match for the Lakers either. Let us
not delude ourselves, however diehard we are in Utah. Come on!! Get real!!!!
Brewer and Williams are not at full strength, and Boozer and Okur are not
playing up to their potential right now at all. I believe the Jazz are covering
up a plethora of injuries with all their players. Matt Harpring is a shadow of
himself. Jerry Sloan is reluctant to play C.J. which he knows best what players
can do in playoff situations. I trust Sloan.Nevertheless.....go
Well I guess if Kobe says he'd rather play the Jazz, then the Rockets are
better. Of course he also said at the beginning of the season that he wanted to
be traded because the Lakers were a horrible team.Kobe says the
Rockets are better, and 99% of the other sports analysts and commentators say
that the Jazz are better. Personally, I'd suggest not taking any analytical
advice from someone like High School grad Kobe Bryant.
What time is the Jazz game tonight?
"Kobe says":First off, Bryant said he preferred to play the Jazz
simply because he figured everyone else would say the Rockets, so he wanted to
be different.Secondly, the Jazz own the Rockets, regular season and
playoffs. Have fun whining about how the better team lost the series tonight.PS: EVERYONE was wanting to play the Rockets in the 1st round. Including
the Jazz. Most thought the series would go 6 games. What's so different now?
If the Lakers want to play the Jazz is what i meant to say
Hey Jazz fans i was reading an article and Kobe Bryant said he prefers the Jazz
win because the Lakers have more advantages in matchups against the Jazz than
they do against the Rockets so we all know that the Rockets are the better team
if the Lakers want to play the Rockets! Go Rockets!Rockets in 7!!!
How many teams have ever come back from getting creamed to win the next
game...?Oh wait, there's been a ton.Twenty-some years
ago Boston smacked LA by thirty in game one just to lose game two.Spurs only scored 64 on Utah at the end of this season just to go back home
and wipe th Jazz off the floor.Nothing like a good old butt-kicking
to get a team's attention, and face itUtah was playing very uninspired ball at
Houston on Tuesday.Jazz will be fine.
Actually... this is game 6 for the Jazz; any way you look at it. It's also game
6 for the Rockets. The Jazz will be putting themselves at a great disadvantage
if they can't close out the series tonight, but I'm not planning on writing them
off until it's all said and done.
I'm suprised the entire Jazz team hasn't flopped on the court at once. When you
lose a tooth and end up with a broken nose, doesn't sound like whining to me.
Compare that with Okur's flailing arms or AK's flailing arms. Get over it.
Rockets in 7
Listen up Rockets fansIt's been fun and all, you're team has guts (I
wish our team played with the heart that your team does), but tonight it
ends.The Jazz will find their jumpers and attack the rim and the
limits of physical play, Derron will play like an MVP, TMac will have good
numbers but disappear in the fourth...and the Jazz will win by
15.Just remember you heard it here first.
ok....We'll if rockets win in game 6, there will be a big chance for
the rockets to win in game 7.go rockets!
This is Game 7 for the Jazz. After seeing the last effort in Houston, I'm not
sure they stand a chance, regardless of their 1st two wins there.The
Rockets are whiners, their coach is a whiner, and even the refs are whiners
(throwing out the Jazz fan) Just shut up and go fishing with Kenny and Charles,
Houston. Jazz in 6.
