So here's the game plan. Win on the road in a hostile environment. Stop/slow Carmelo. Don't let JR Smith shoot. Be near perfect on offense. Oh, be without your third-leading scorer and without your x-factor.
A couple of great tweets from Siler,
Cool scene from the Jazz locker room before Game 2 with Matt Harpring in a suit giving Wesley Matthews a Carmelo tutorial. They went back and forth for 10 minutes or so, with Harpring offering pointers on Carmelo's moves and Matthews sticking a hand in his face.
He didn't mention if he schooled him smack talk or not.
I hope we see a highly emotional, yet in control Jazz team playing for Memo. Of course the Nuggets have George Karl on their minds. I the Jazz can draw on that for 48 minutes tonight.
