Back on May 26th, 2007 the *lowly* Utah Jazz - already down 0-2 to the mighty San Antonio Spurs - clawed their way to an impressive 109-83 victory at home in Game 3. While Tony Parker still managed a 25 point, 7 assist game, the Jazz put the clamps down on everyone else. Tim Duncan had 16, and Manu Ginobili needed 12 shots to get his 14 points. The Spurs shot just 43.8 fg% while the Jazz rolled. Deron Williams was on a mission and finished with 31 points (4/5 from deep, 7/8 from the line) and had 8 assists and 5 steals. Carlos Boozer had 27 and 12, and as a team the Jazz shot 53.2 fg%. How crazy way that game? Well Derek Fisher and Gordan Giricek played over 56 combined minutes, and finished with 22 points off of 50.0 fg% shooting, and 7 assists (Gira with 6). So yeah, it was a magical game where every single member of the Jazz finished with a positive +/- value.

Can the Oklahoma City Thunder, a much more highly regarded team that's also down 0-2, equal the mark made by the Jazz by winning tonight?
