Game 3 Preview - Utah Jazz & Houston Rockets vs. The FLDS

Nothing like a little religious excitement to amp up a game that quite frankly needs a little drama involved. I am curious to see how many of the wives actually show up to protest. I also want to know why it is only the wives that are coming, where are the so called men in this situation?

Sorry for the 20 seconds of politics, lets get onto the real game tonight (assuming that the Jazz and Rockets don't decide to cancel the game as the lawyer for the FLDS is demanding). I think that the Jazz need to come out tonight like wild dogs and get the crowd whipped up into a frenzy. I am fully expecting a 35 point first quarter with 75% shooting. I hope that the crowd can take this game to a new level and cement our reputation as the best home court advantage in the league. I better be able to hear the "Tracy's Tired" chants on TV. If any of the readers are going to the game I would love to get a first hand account of the atmosphere tomorrow morning.

I hope that the Jazz don't take this game too lightly and lean on the home court advantage. This is a very important game, a loss tonight sends the series back to Houston and that is not acceptable. The Jazz can not let the Rockets gain any momentum or think that they have a chance to win this. Tonight is the night to deliver the knock out blow and kill any thoughts of a come back. In my opinion, here is what needs to happen for the Jazz to put this series away.

1 - Boozer needs to stay out of foul trouble and be a stud. Something like 25 and 12 should do it.
2 - Brewer, AK, Harpring and Korver need to get up in Tracy's face and be very physical. Between the 4 of them we have 24 fouls to give and they should try using all of them all. Tracy is not a very good free throw shooter so lets make him think twice about trying to get to the rim.
3 - Up the tempo. the Jazz need to get this game going early and don't take their foot off the pedal. We average 106 points per game during the season, lets see if we can get there tonight.

I also think the team that puts the ball in the hoop more times will have the upper hand.

Good point.

I will be a happy man if we find out one of the Rockets players hooks up with an FLDS wife as they are proteting outside their hotel.

"Hey there baby girl, why don't you come and protest in my room..."

That would make my day.

Both Matt and I from FLA are going to be there. We will make sure that you know how it went down in the arena. And if you hear the "Tracy's Tired" chants, look no further than us for starting them.

Go Jazz!
