This team is making progress and improving. I feel confident that they will get the lineups and rotations optimized in time. If any game showed their offensive shortage its tonight when they shot 51.7% from the field - the best of the year - and still lost

TL didn’t have that many minutes, with tomorrow in mind methinks.
Al was crushing Gobert in the 1st half.

Jazz adjusted at halftime and were ready for it. They went Conley/Gobert PnR and shredded the C's the last 5mins

Out of the many hoop games I've watched not sure I've seen a team hit that many 3s at that high of a %

The defense was great at times. Gorman was giggling he liked it so much. But the Jazz were hitting 3s from the other side of the Great Salt Lake and that eventually gets demoralizing.

Agreed with above that Al seems to have 25 gamechanging minutes in him, tops, and then it’s all downhill.

I had to work last nite and missed all but the final five minutes of the game. Looking at the box score and seeing how many 3s the Jazz hit, I'm struggling to understand how the game was even close. Utah's edge in rebounding was massive, too.

They look like they're out of gas and a player short. Which makes sense.
I didn't see the lasr 1/3rd but it sounds like they missed Romeo, particularly on defense.

Hope is ankle isn't too bad but it looked like he's going to miss a few games, which is too bad as he started finishing at the rim.

Turnovers were 20-6 in C's favor was what kept them in it. 22-22 from the line helped too. Keith Smith said 41/51 of the Utah 3PA were contested by the C's, they were just making them anyway. BH is right, the Conley/Gobert PnR killed them in the second.

Conley is certainly an exception to the 30+ point guard falling off the cliff narrative, that guy just seems to keep getting better. Hard to believe he and Oden were freshmen together at OSU, that seems like a long time ago.

Jazz scored on 11 of their final 12 possessions against Boston. That's mind-boggling.
