West SF Series: Clippers vs Jazz

Jazz had a hot start but the Clippers have recovered to have the upper hand during the second quarter of game one.

Without Conley, Ingles is into the starting line-up.

Who wins the series and how many games?

Will go 7 I think. Too close to call so 50/50.

On a related note, the NBA has become so perimeter-focussed/shooter focussed that the analysis aspect has totally been taken out of the game. Pretty much now any game can just be summarised as being decided on "the team that shoots the ball better wins" - so many of those other little strategic elements have been taken out. Everything always comes back to the shooting nowadays.

The game has always been about who can put the ball in the hole more times. The way teams do that now has changed, sure, but to suggest there arent strategic elements is laughable.

Great finish. Gobert had been dragged out to the perimeter all game, so only fitting.

Very entertaining game and it's awesome to see crowds back in full swing, particularly raucous, hostile crowds like Utah's. Loved their taunting of Paul George at the free throw line.

Something didn't look quite right with Joe Ingles. He seemed hesitant, very quick to get rid of the ball and not confident with his shot. Hopefully he can turn it around in game 2 and the rest of the series.

Inglis defence on the last play was a game winner though. Lot punters and commentators only see one end of the court.

It seems no matter what poor Joe achieves his surname will continue to be misspelt.

Jazz go 2-0. Great contribution from Ingles with 19/4/4 and game-high plus minus of +21. At one point in the fourth, with Utah trailing by a bucket, he scored, assisted an and-one, assisted a three, and then made his own three and had the Jazz up 10.

He started again, in place of Conley.
