HIS PERFORMANCE 👇🏽👇🏽

BY DESIGN:

DOMANTAS SABONIS WAS EXCLUSIVE USED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE FLOOR. HE WASN’T USED AS A SCORER BUT AS A DECOY FOR HIS TEAMMATES TO GET THEIR ONE ON ONE MATCHUPS. SABONIS WAS ALSO EFFICIENT IN LAST NIGHT’S GAME BESIDES THE 5 TURNOVERS.

STYLE OF PLAY:

THE INDIANA PACERS RAN A LOT OF DESIGN PICK AND ROLL HAND OFF’S THROUGH HIM. FORTUNATELY ENOUGH THIS STYLE OF PLAY WORKED AS HIS TEAMMATES WERE ABLE TO KNOCK DOWN THEIR SHOTS! THE DENVER NUGGETS TRIED TO SWITCH UP THEIR DEFENSE MANY TIMES BY DOUBLING AND TRAPPING. BUT SABONIS WOULD HIT HIS TEAMMATES WITH A SMOOTH BOUNCE /TOUCH PASS. (SIMILAR TO HIS DAD) OR HE WOULD CRASH THE BOARDS ON A MISS SHOT. HE WAS BUSY ON THE OFFENSE GLASS PULLING DOWN 7 OFFENSE REBOUNDS!

OVERALL THE INDIANA PACERS HAD A GREAT OFFENSE GAME-PLAN. WORKING THEIR MISMATCHES.

GAME SCORE:

INDIANA PACERS -115

(28-15)

DENVER NUGGETS – 107

(29-13)

FUN FACT:

DOMANTAS SABONIS IS THIRD OVERALL IN THE LEAGUE WITH DOUBLE DOUBLES. HE CURRENTLY HAS 32!

IS DOMANTAS SABONIS AN ALL-STAR?

YES. I HOPE HE MAKES IT!

UTAH JAZZ – 10 GAME WINNING STREAK

THE LAST TIME THE UTAH JAZZ LOST WAS ON DECEMBER 23 , 2019. THE JAZZ LOST AGAINST THE MIAMI HEAT IN A CLOSE NAIL-BITER. SINCE THAT DAY THE JAZZ MADE A TRADE WITH CLEVELAND FOR JORDAN CLARKSON. CLARKSON’S ROLE IS TO HELP IMPROVE THEIR DEPTH AND SCORING OFF THE BENCH.

WITH THIS STREAK:

ON A SCALE 1-10 HOW IMPRESSED ARE YOU WITH THIS WINNING STREAK?

I WOULD RATE THEIR STREAK AT A 6.

THEY ARE TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS AGAINST WEAKER OPPONENTS. IF THEY KEEP THIS STREAK ALIVE WHEN THEY PLAY AGAINST PLAYOFF TEAMS THEN I WILL CHANGE MY MIND. HOW LONG CAN THIS WINNING STREAK LAST?

THE UTAH JAZZ ARE CURRENTLY IN 3RD PLACE IN THE WEST WITH A RECORD OF 28-12.

ALSO THE UTAH JAZZ ARE TIED FOR THE THIRD BEST RECORD IN THE LEAGUE!

THIS CHART SHOWS THEIR WINNING STREAK AND THEIR OPPONENTS OVER THE LAST 10 GAMES.

HOW LONG CAN THE UTAH JAZZ KEEP THIS WINNING STREAK?

SHOULD DONOVAN MITCHELL BE IN THE MVP DISCUSSION IF THE UTAH JAZZ KEEP WINNING AT A HIGH CLIP?

I WOULD.

CAN THE JAZZ FINISH IN THE TOP 3 IN THE WEST?

HOPEFUL.

NIKOLA JOKIC VS ATLANTA HAWKS (1-6-20)

NOW THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR ALL SEASON FROM JOKIC!

HE DROPPED A CAREER HIGH VS THE ATLANTA HAWKS. LIKE HE HAD SOME PERSONAL VENDETTA AGAINST THEM. I MEAN THEY WERE LOW KEY DISRESPECTFUL TO NIKOLA JOKIC SHOOTING ABILITY. THEY TREATED HIM LIKE HE WAS BEN SIMMONS LOL!

THE ATLANTA HAWKS HAD NO ONE THAT COULD HOLD NIKOLA JOKIC ONE ON ONE AS HE PUNISHED THEM IN THE POST.

THE JOKER WAS A BULLY ALL NIGHT LONG. HE FEASTED IN THE PAINT LIKE IT WAS THANKSGIVING. THE ATLANTA HAWKS WERE CLEARLY NOT EXPECTING JOKIC TO BE AGGRESSIVE ALL THROUGHOUT THE GAME.

MY HOPES:

I HOPE THIS GAME WAS A TURNING POINT FOR NIKOLA JOKIC THIS SEASON.

“THE JOKER’S MINDSET”

“I AM THE BEST BIG MAN IN THE LEAGUE AND I WILL LEAD MY TEAM FURTHER THAN I DID LAST YEAR.”

GAME SCORE:

DENVER NUGGETS – 123
