The Golden State Warriors shocked the world and knocked off the #1 seeded Utah Jazz 131-119 in a thrilling Sunday matinee at Chase Center. Here’s a quick recap of the game with highlights from our LGW community game thread.
BIG DAY FOR WIGGINS, POOLE, AND WISEMAN TRUTHERS.
End of 1Q: Warriors 33, Jazz 24
Sleepy Freud: 15-0 run against the best team in the league will do.
rcknfn: Awesome 1st quarter! 2nd unit, its all on you.
OGG Gurl: Was that the best quarter of basketball they’ve played this year? My eyes say yes.
Halftime: Warriors 67, Jazz 54
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribeThat looked so weird, Gobert flexing after Draymond’s dunk
ChaosSamedi: Second unit doesnt look that bad if they would stop f—ng switching everything, wiseman also has looked pretty good defending on an island against guards today
Sleepy Freud: If Wiseman doubled the gapping distance he seems to think is appropriate for NBA guards, he'd probably have it about right.
Goofus: My Warriors are looking good!
End of 3Q: Warriors 95, Jazz 86
Apricot: If GSW can just keep a double digit lead into the 4th, then they should be down only 5 when the starters come back
Jazz: 28/67 FGs, 11/31 threes, 19/25 FTs
Warriors: 38/69 FGs, 12/25 threes, 7/8 FTs
End of 4Q: Warriors 131, Jazz 119
Goofus: Is it hyperbole to say that the next 6 minutes or so are the most important of the season? If the 2nd unit can play like they did after settling down in the 2nd, we might actually be good!
BadlyBrowned: Bench offense looks much more watchable with actual playmakers on the floor.
Daniel Hardee: Wiseman got a board and a putback over Gobert? Hmm that's odd
AttilaTheHun: Hey Wiseman held onto that pass too. Geez I hope this is a trend.
Pius Street Uke: Beautiful Draymond triple double!
Janet: Oubre is Spiderman
BadlyBrowned: TWO WAY WIGGS
ServantOfLuna: We broke our losing streak...by beating the Jazz??? Wow.
DraymondWantsItMore: We needed that win, and I'm really glad it involved Poole, manion, Wiggins, wiseman etc having big parts, not just leaning on steph and dray for everything. What a f——g rollercoaster!
