So that's it. This season of 'win now' got us the same ultimate fate as developing more: the lottery. It was close. But in a results based society, close only counts for horseshoes, hand grenades, and drive in movies.

  • The Utah Jazz lost to the Memphis Grizzlies. It was a close game, too close, but we did not capitalize on their mistakes. They capitalized on ours. They wanted it more. They dove on the floor for loose balls. We didn't. Our season is over, while theirs is just starting.

The 'Meh':

  • Everything else.

Tonight:

We here at SLC Dunk try to piece together what happened last night, and this season.

The Playoffs:

So funny how all these matchups are perfect for the media. It honestly couldn't have been better, unless somehow they added 2 more teams to the playoffs and the Minnesota Timberwolves were somehow involved.
