There were a few things that bothered me about Tuesday’s game. I was not down on the team nor did I think they didn’t play hard. I am not upset about the loss. I would like to see a few things tonight though:
- During the regular season Hayward seemed to not play as well on national TV.
So I looked it up! This season in 6 national TV games, Hayward has scored 3.5 fewer PPG, but picked up more assists, rebs, steals, & blocks. https://t.co/xQB84nPDqC— Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) April 3, 2017
@dianaallen Both. Down about 1 FGA, about 5% FG%.— Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) April 3, 2017
- Hayward once again looked like that starstruck player on Tuesday night. He seemed tight and uncomfortable. In order to win a game, we need Hayward at his very best. I would love to see the Hayward we saw against the Clippers.
- Better decision making and better shooting from George Hill. Hill shot 3-9 from the field. His shooting was off and he didn’t seem quite himself in running the offense.
- Stop the Warriors’ backdoor passes which lead to easy baskets.
- More confidence. The Jazz looked terrified of the Warriors for much of the game. Act like you belong and you will play like you belong.
I would really love to see a competitive game tonight. Despite losing by “only” 12, the Jazz really weren’t in the ballgame except for the first quarter on Tuesday. Let’s keep it competitive and put ourselves in position to win. I hate super teams. I think they are ruining the NBA. But since we have to play one, lets do our best and control what we can control and let’s act like we believe we can win.

The Pink Grandmas had a special article written about them by Koon of the SL Tribune.

Here’s a sneak peak:
Mori and Homma started wearing pink to be seen. It started for only one person to keep track of where they were. A family friend, Brad Nakamura, bought them pink jackets so he could see them from his seat across from the basket.
More and more people took notice, including coaches and players. Among the most frequent visitors to Section 7 are Locke and Becky Lindsey, the wife of Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey. Mori said she recently ran into Sloan, the former Jazz coach, in public — they share an audiologist.
"He said, 'I know you, Pink Lady,' " she recalled. "Then he gave me a hug."
Go read the rest. They have had an interesting life.
Will the Jazz win tonight?
