Default Round 1 - Jazz vs Thunder Thread

Two pretty good games thus far. Lots of fun storylines. Would love to hear everyone else's predictions for the series.

Rooting for the Jazz. I think it could go 7, which I know would be in OKC's building, but I'm hoping Jazz can pull it off!

I need the Jazz to win. This way, Donovan Mitchell RPA's can go from $2K to about $10 and NT cases can go from $4k to around $20K.

I will pay for my daughters college this way.

This series still makes me sad. I hate it. These are my teams man. Jazz are my home team, so I've loved them forever, but I'm a massive Westbrook fan and have followed OKC for several years as well. Just sucks one of them will be done in the first round.

Either way, whoever wins this series is who I'm pulling for all the way. As long as its not Cavs and Golden Girls again, should be fun.

I'm gonna stick with OKC in 7, but it's a total coin flip still.

I really like how Utah executes, whereas OKC has the greater big game experience.

I think the Thunder have more talent, but I'm taking the Jazz because they play better as a team and the Thunder are too inconsistent.

Awesome game going on right now.

Rubio is str8 hoopin’ on anyone guarding him. OKC playing savage basketball. Only way Paul George can create separation is to use his Kyrie Irvingesque super pushoff. Very difficult to watch, but makes it very easy to root against!

Rubio is severely outplaying Russ the past two games..this crowd is super electric..i feel like utah will open this game up wide open in the 3rd...

I cannot believe how bad the OKC offense is. Watch Utah, Rubio brings it up, they look for Gobert, several cuts. They find Favors who kicks to Ingles for an easy 3. Bang.

OKC... gets ball to Westbrook, shot. Felton brings it up... shot. WTH are they thinking?

And yet, they could totally win this game.

I'm amazed at two things from OKC in this game:

Terrible turnovers and the number of times they've left Joe Ingles wide open at the three point line


*Edit* Just happened agian

I give a ton of credit to the Jazz...they want it so much more and it's so obvious..I really can't see OKC winning here in game 4

It's fascinating how poor his Basketball IQ is, or he just doesn't care.

He makes DUMBBBBB decisions but to me he genuinely looks out of it this game..like he's given up this game

He's an incredible slasher, so athletic, can get to the rim basically at will, and then he just does so many dumb things on a Basketball court sometimes.
