OKC THUNDER VS UTAH JAZZ 2OT THRILLER! OKC OVERVIEW(2/22/19)

THE SECOND HALF OF THE SEASON IS UPON US!

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER FANS WERE EXTREMELY THUNDEROUS ABOUT LAST NIGHTS VICTORY. THE THUNDER HAVE ONE OF THE LOUDEST ARENAS IN THE ENTIRE NBA. THIS GAME HAD A LOT OF INTENSITY AS IF THIS WERE A PLAYOFF GAME.

DURING THIS GAME THERE WERE 23 LEAD CHANGES AND 21 TIES. IT TOOK 2 OVERTIMES AND A GAME WINNING SHOT BY PAUL GEORGE FOR THE THUNDER TO GET THE WIN.

AS OKC IMPROVES TO 38-20 THEY REMAIN IN 3RD PLACE IN THE WEST.

UTAH REMAINS IN THE PLAYOFFS AS THE 6TH SEED. THEIR RECORD IS CURRENTLY 32-26.

FINAL SCORE:

147 UTA

148 OKC

2OT

DID YOU KNOW?

THEY ARE THE FIRST TEAMMATES THIS SEASON TO PULL THIS IMPRESSIVE OUTPUT AS THEY COMBINED FOR 88 POINTS.

MVP DISCUSSIONS:

PAUL GEORGE HAS BEEN BALLING OUT HIS MIND THIS SEASON AS HE MAKES A HUGE PUSH TOWARDS THE TOP OF THE MVP RACE. AS RIGHT NOW I WOULD HAVE PAUL GEORGE SLIGHTLY BEHIND GIANNIS FOR MVP. THE LAST STRETCH OF THE SEASON WILL PROVE WHICH PLAYER WANTS IT MORE.

THIS IS PAUL GEORGE’S LAST 12 GAMES IN SCORING NOT INCLUDING LAST NIGHTS PERFORMANCE.

GAME OVERVIEW:

THE GAME WAS GOING BACK AND FORTH AS THE THUNDER STARTED TO PULL AWAY TOWARDS THE END OF THE 2ND QUARTER. THE JAZZ FREE FLOWING OFFENSE AND EXCELLENT BALL MOVEMENT KEPT THEM IN THE GAME. RUSSELL WESTBROOK INGRAINED HIMSELF EARLY AS HE WOULD OFTEN TAKE THE BALL IN THE POST (WHICH I PERSONALLY LOVE) AND GET EASY SHOTS AS HE BULLIED HIS DEFENDERS. ALSO HE WAS GETTING A LOT OF EASY ASSISTS.

WHY?

BECAUSE WESTBROOK IN THE POST IS A PROBLEM MAINLY BECAUSE HIS SIZE AND STRENGTH.

AT HALF TIME THE SCORE WAS

57 UTA

66 OKC

AT THE END OF THE 3RD QUARTER THE JAZZ TOOK THE LEAD AS THEY KEPT MOVING THE BALL WELL AND KEEPING OKC HONEST ON DEFENSE WITH THERE 3 POINT SHOOTING.

95 UTA

93 OKC

THE JAZZ MADE A RUN EARLY IN THE FORTH AND STILL REMAIN AHEAD BUT PAUL GEORGE PUT THIS TEAM ON HIS BACK AND SAID THIS IS MY NEW STANDARD NOW PUT SOME RESPECT ON MY NAME!

HE WENT INTO HIS BAG AS HE TOOK OVER THE 4TH AND BOTH OVERTIMES TO GET THE VICTORY.

WHAT THIS GAME TAUGHT ME:

BALL MOVEMENT IS ALWAYS THE BEST OPTION IN CREATING EASY OFFENSE.

ALSO

GREAT PLAYERS NEED TO TAKE OVER WHEN EVERYTHING BREAKS DOWN.

THAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE IN THE GAME. PAUL GEORGE AND RUSSELL WESTBROOK CARRIED THEIR TEAM. WESTBROOK IN THE FIST HALF WITH HIS SCORING AND GEORGE IN THE 2ND HALF AND TWO OVERTIMES.

THUNDER QUESTIONS:

ARE THEY THE BEST DUO IN THE NBA?

HOW FAR CAN THE THUNDER GO?

JAZZ QUESTION:

WHICH PLAYER WILL BE YOUR 2ND AND 3RD OFFENSE OPTION?
