    Great game by all last night.

    Hope we come out even harder in Gm 2 because Utah will.

    I don't think they stick with that gimmicky defense no matter what Rubio says.

    Ingles won't take just 4 shots hitting only 1 in Gm 2.

    I think it will be a much harder fought game.

    Still got the Rockets in 4 tho.

    According to Rubio they aren't changing their defense so I think we win by 20 instead fo 30.

    I expect it to be more competitive in that the score will be closer but the outcome will still be the same. The better team will win.

    There's upside and downside...

    Upside:
    The Rockets shooters did NOT shoot some crazy percentage for the majority of the game
    Harden didn't scorch them in terms of efficiency
    We had no whistle until the game was basically over. Refs were determined not let the Rockets free throw the Jazz to death.

    Downside:
    The Jazz didn't get much shooting from anyone and while some of that is defense, a lot of 3 point shooting is just luck
    Ingles wasn't aggressive on offense
    The whistle thing might continue

    I could see it being tougher for sure, but if the Rockets are going to play locked in and the Jazz don't make substantial changes to scheme/rotation, I don't see how they compete.

    It is generally tougher but I'm sure we will adjust.

    Jingles shot has been broken since December soon after he claimed to be the best shooter in the NBA. I know this cause he was on my fantasy team.

    Our talent level is just so much higher than Utah's. They have to play incredible to win a game while if we play average, we are gonna take care of the business. Funny thing, I don't think we played all that well until late 3rd. None of our guys went into an unbelievable mode last night and yet we still won convincingly.

    I’ll believe that when I see Utah actually standing in front of James, and not behind him.

    Dun give me that they are way less talented. They have the talent to at least win 2.
    Sure it's a nightmare matchup for them.

    If they have enough integrity and honor they would fight. I did not see much fight. Good for us.

    Mitchell is the guy to be most worried about. I don't think he will shoot as poorly or defer as much in game 2. If he goes off for for 30 and get some other guys involved, the Jazz will be in the game.

    I hope its tougher. if you wanna beat the champs you need the best sparring partner possible. the jazz crapping their pants 4 games in a row doesn't do us any favors in helping to prepare for the warriors.
