    Even with Donovan's atrocious shooting and the corrupt officials' blatant bias towards Westbrook, this game was lost on multiple missed layups by the black hole known as Dante.
    This isn't a charity, its an NBA team.

    It would be nice for once to see a Jazz player have a 40+ point night in response to a challenge.

    a big problem... Rudy flubs more passes than he catches and really needs to develop a jump shot. Donovan needs to learn when to shoot and when to pass off.

    when you let a team go on a 23-2 run the all the officiating in the world cannot help you.

    At the end of quarters and end of game the coach has to have the 3 point shooters with the ball in their hands Korver and Selfelosha sitting on the bench with the game on the line with Donovan who is shooting less than 20% from three point land with the ball in his hands, sounds more a like a play the opposing coach would come up with.

    4th takeaway: 8 man teams beat 5 man teams.

    That is 2 losses this week directly attributed to corrupt refs.

    I turned off the TV the moment that the refs refused to call a 6th foul on Westbrook. At that point it was clear which team would win the game, regardless of how either played.

    Why even bother?

    With close games like this it’s hard to play against the refs.
