Curry switches Jazz off in Western Conference

15 Mai 2017

They might steal a game in Salt Lake City, but this series will likely end in another Golden State sweep.

The Game 1 of the Jazz vs. Warriors will air on TNT, which means it will be available to live stream online on TNT Overtime as well as TNT's flagship streaming app - Watch TNT. Against a Jazz offensive scheme that relies on a motion offense, the switching style and versatility of the Warriors negated all ideas and creativity. "I think the key thing for us is to set the bar high as far as competitiveness and endurance and go from there". Stephen Curry had 22 points to lead a balanced attack.

The Jazz can't say the same about how the Warriors pressured them. "That's what really hurt us. He's so versatile that he's hard to guard, and we try to use him in a way that allows him to shine in those situations".

The Jazz looked worn out and considering they are coming off a seven-game series where they narrowly beat the Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State had the plenty of time to rest and get healthy for the second round.

During the Jazz's Game 1 loss at the hands of the Warriors, Hill scored just seven points over the course of 28 minutes. "It's more of a function of our personnel". Throughout the first half, the Jazz did their best to muck up and slow down the game. They were able to do all of this despite the absence of their head coach Steve Kerr, who is out indefinitely with a back-related illness, according to team officials and reports.

"We picked up right where we left off", Curry said. We have the rest of our staff and that's what we're rolling with."Foul count: The Jazz got very little out of perhaps their most important player in the first round".

Gobert said the ankle he sprained last week is bothering him more than the knee he hyperextended two weeks ago. Given that the Warriors won the game by 12 points, that margin certainly made a significant difference.

"I don't want to blame it on fatigue at all", said Jazz star Gordon Hayward, who missed 11 of his 15 shots and was limited to 12 points. "He's got to be smart". When he found himself on Gobert, he'd expertly position himself on the pick and roll to deny both the switch and the rim-dive. "We were pretty banged up". In all, Hill was sidelined for 33 games, and the Jazz went 18-15 without him.

Jazz: F Derrick Favors (back soreness) was listed as questionable and prior to tipoff upgraded to available.

Once the Jazz got on the board, they had a problem with turnovers - specifically, the Warriors scoring off of them. He helped Utah to outscore the Warriors in the paint 46-44 and was Utah's leading rebounder on a night when they finished +7 on the glass. "So, we've just got to adjust, come back and be ready for next game".
