Its 2:30 in the morning, the Jazz lost hours ago and I am still awake. I don’t want to be awake, I’m tired, grumpy, and sad nothing sounds better then going to bed, and pretending the game didn’t happen. Yet, I am awake.
The game did happen. I don’t think the Jazz realize it happened maybe Memo did that’s it. Maybe the Jazz thought the game was on Thursday. I don’t know.
I also don’t know how you can win a game and be 3rd in the West and face teams that you are 10-1 against. Or you can lose and be 5th once again for the 3rd time in 4 years, and play a team that you are 1-3 against. If you’re lucky enough to get past that round you will be rewarded to play a team that you are also 1-3 against. And you choose to lose.
I don’t understand how a player can say he’s 90% and choose not to play. I don’t understand how in such an important game players just played like they didn’t care.
I don’t understand how in front of 19,911 fans on a night that honored your late owner, you don’t show up. I don’t understand how you can see how much this organization means to its owner, fans and past players and you lay an egg.
I do understand that I wasn’t surprised in the least. You have been this way for the last 4 years. I do understand that fans were highly invested emotionally and financially in this game and showed that they cared more than you did.
I also understand that once again it will be a short playoff run for the Jazz.
