Auckland, California. • Before the Golden State Warriors Western Conference Tuesday, coach Coin Snyder noted that his team is still developing and that this final match before the All-Star break will be a good way to find out where the team is.
Verdict: There's plenty to be liked, but there are more ways to go.
After the laughing start, the Jazz gets together ̵
The 12-minute discovery at Oracle Arena showed that Utah hit only 26.3% of the field, made zero shots and made eight revs
Jazz won a reputation. as one of the most sophisticated defensive teams in the league, and at least it was on the screen as the game continued.
After allowing the Golden State players too many free runs to the basket in the first quarter, Utah adjusted to the second. , luring the Warriors into a bombardment far from deep – with no success, as the hosts made only one of their first 15 attempts beyond the rainbow.
"They were an aggressor; they led us out of what we wanted to do in defense, and that can not happen, "said Donovan Mitchell. "We need to be able to get out there and attack that we did in the second quarter of the first quarter. It is really – to be aggressive, to be an aggressor, not to allow them to dictate what we are doing. "
Scratch helped jazz crawl back within 36-35, and discomfort among home fans became tangible. Steph Curry drained 3 and then another. And then Andrew Igwodala buried one. And suddenly, the game that had become unpleasant near the host team again had a breathing room.
The third quarter began, both of which found its shape – the Golden State, making 5 of its first 8, while Utah went 7 out of 11.
And while the prospect of a Warfare shootout usually predisposes a disaster, the Jazz has actually received better than him for a while.
Utah started to rise, and Mitchell's jazz in the 4:39 category put Jazz
They pulled 15 of 22 shots in the third, released 40 points in the process and showed the Warriors that they would not disappear easily.
Then, The Wars
And when the avalanche finally arrived, she buried the chances of Jazz.
Utah had a 91-84 lead at the start of the last period, but Dramond Green was disconnected. The Iguodalla stole a pass and ran for the snapping dip. Kevin Durant faded. DeMarcus Cousins pulled a rebound and put the ball. And two curry three-pointers later, and Warriors had 19-4, 103-95, and another victory almost finished.
"If we stay focused on the game plan, try to run it and take what we want to take in the fourth quarter, we could make it a little harder for "They are a very talented team and they know how to win games, and we have to work on the matter and try to see what we can do better."
The victory was the fifth in line Golden State and hit his record at 41.
For the Warriors, Kevin Durant led with 28 points and added seven assists, Curry turned 24 points, and Klay Thompson overcame his finger to add 22.  And they all combine to make the difference when it was most important. just kept a little and there were some debris in defense, late when they cleared up too well, "Snyder said. "They are too good for them to look good."
