...or maybe it went straight to Portland instead.
Here's your box score for this 113-99 loss. Read it along with me...The two eye opening stats. 1) The Jazz shot 53%. 2) The Jazz had 14 offensive rebounds which was 41% of their missed shots. You will win approximately 1 game out of 82 giving up those numbers.
Deron Williams ate the Spurs lunch. I was so disgusted by our defense I failed to be impressed by his masterful game. He scored 27 points, dished out 9 assists, and grabbed 7 rebounds. He also played some great defense on Tony in the second half holding him to just 4 points.
Your 3 UN-stars:
3 - Matt Bonner: 1-6 shooting, 1-5 from 3-point, 2 rebounds in 17 minutes
2 - First half Manu/Second half Tony: Manu hit the break with 4 points on 2-7 shooting, 2 turnovers and 0 assists. He didn't look right. Tony got shutdown in the second half and had 4 points on 2-5 shooting and 1 assist.
1 - George Hill: George was 1-8 from the field and that wasn't the worst part. He gave up lots of easy baskets on defense. Forced shots. Committed bad fouls. Williams scored at will on him. Not a good night for George at all.
Your 3 stars:
3 - RAGE: He wasn't great, but he was decent. He made some shots. He took it to the hole a few times.
2 - Parts of the Big 3: Tim, Tony, and Manu all looked good for stretches and mediocre and out of shape for others. They all ended with Ok numbers, but I wasn't thrilled with any of them.
1 - BLAIRRRR!!1!: He really wasn't that great. He padded his stats in the last two minutes of garbage time. However, I'm continually amazed at his ability to score in the paint in a crowd.
