Jazz hoping to take control against Thunder in Game 3

Jazz hoping to take control against Thunder in Game 3

"It's up there", Favors said.

"We have to have that mentality", he said, then added, "I don't want to put that emphasis on this game being do or die. I thought he took good shots and it really stabilized our group". "But he was particularly great last game". However, so far in the series, the Jazz have been out-rebounding the Thunder by eight per game 55.7 to 47.7 per game.

Rubio finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his first career postseason triple-double and was humbled to be keeping company with Stockton afterward.

The 76ers lead their Eastern Conference series 3-1 and can eliminate the Heat in game five in Philadelphia on Wednesday (NZ time).

Ingles, who was a primary cog in Utah's offense as the Jazz got better and better throughout the season, was almost invisible in the first two games against the defense of George. "I wanted to get better, get some extra work, build confidence and in Game 2 it worked". In order for the Thunder to impose its will on Utah, Russell Westbrook will need to play a game that more closely resembles what fans have grown accustomed to.

"Just gotta take what's given", Westbrook said. Due to the outstanding defense of Ricky Rubio and Rudy Gobert, Westbrook has been relying too heavily on his jump shot - not a winning recipe if you're the Thunder. "We've had some situations where we've had some guys leaking out, we've had some guys who have to get back in there and help rebound. That game is over with, though".

Jazz forward Jonas Jerebko confirmed in the most intuitive of ways that his team is fully aware of the guarantee.

"But it's one of those ones where you can't ease up the aggressiveness so I haven't done that - it sucks because they're still calling it".

Some parts of the game, no matter how much time is spent refining them, just seem to slide the wrong way. The Thunder have done quite well in their history playing on the road against the Jazz, and also have a long list of series they have started 1-1. In the two games, nine different players have scored in double figures.

"Ironically, we've gotten worse as the series has gone on", he said. "Against this team defensively, we need to have more stamina on more possessions".

After their victory in Game 2, four Jazz players spoke at the podium.

Head coach Quin Snyder said Rubio's performance was one of the reasons his team was able to win. Are the hosts going to win an important Game 3 tonight?
