Let’s break down these Warriors vs Jazz highlights from Wednesday night. Both teams started strong and traded scoring runs. Trent Forrest and Jordan Poole were key players in the first half as both teams traded 15 point runs to start the game. Stephen Curry started slow, but came on in the 3rd quarter to bring the game back to even yet again. Donovan Mitchell and Forrest worked particularly well together, as their energetic dribbling left the Warriors exasperated at times.
Jazz Defense Without Gobert
The Jazz were missing Rudy Gobert but more than made up for his absence with the play of Hassan Whiteside. He stood out on defense, notching 6 blocks against the Warriors in the first half alone. He also got some steals, combining with Trent Forrest to create turnovers from Curry and run the fast-break against the Warriors.
The Jazz went an absolute tear late in the game, scoring three triples in a row to open the 4th quarter. The Warriors were playing well enough, but couldn’t cope with the onslaught of shooting from the Jazz. Conley, Mitchell and Bogdanovic all shot over 40% from three, getting 33 points from beyond the arc between themselves.
Warriors’ Rebounding Problems
When Stephen Curry is your leading rebounder, your team has problems. The Jazz out-rebounded the Warriors by 61-46. They dominated second chance points 16-4. The Warriors were sorely missing the presence of a big man to attack the boards and will be looking forward to getting Green, Wiseman or Bjelica back.
