The Jazz season ends. The Spurs sweep the series.
Utah, flat out, couldn’t shoot the ball in this series. The Jazz played good enough defense tonight, and in the previous home game, but just couldn’t put the ball in the baskets. Are lack of consistent outside shooting really was a glaring weakness in this series. This area has to be improved in the off season.
Duncan and Parker only had 11 points each, but the Spurs bench slaughtered Utah’s second group. The Spurs nailed 10 three point shots. Ginobili led the Spurs with 17 points, while Neal had 11 points, and Splitter 10 points.
Jefferson had his best game of the series, shooting 13-19 from the floor, and finished with 26 points, and 10 rebounds. Millsap hauled down 19 rebounds. Harris finished with 19 points, and 7 assists.
Favors scored 16 points, and had 10 rebounds, but his real value is on the defensive end. He needs to be a starter next season, period. Hayward was awful in this series offensively. He really needs to work on his shooting, and his overall consistency. Carroll was active off the bench.
Jazz Player of the Game: Al Jefferson
It’s now time for KOC to take over, and find the missing pieces. Right now, our identity is pretty much a bunch of scrappy over achievers. We need to either become an offensive team, or a defensive team. We need something to hang our hat on.
