With the need to win game 3 in Utah, the Jazz have been taken out of their game by one of the NBA’s most fundamentally solid teams. There are no Jazz players spouting the cliches such as “our backs are against the wall” or “we just need to hold serve.” No instead it seems as though the Jazz are on a love fest.
“I just think we’re playing against a team that is at its peak,” Al Jefferson said. “I don’t see nobody beating them. We ain’t given up trying. But this is a great team.”
For the Spurs, it is business as usual and the team knows just what it takes to win. PG Tony Parker for one knows what it takes to move on.
“We can’t be satisfied with ourselves,” Parker said. “Make sure we keep the same mentality. Keep playing well. Keep playing with a lot of energy.”
Game 4 is scheduled for 8 PM Eastern time at Energy Solutions Arena is Salt Lake City.
