Utah Jazz bemoan déjà vu meltdown vs. Clippers: ‘We never get our hands dirty’

Written by sidhanta

In a season that’s seen Utah blow too many double-digit leads to bother counting anymore (it’s 14 now, by the way), they uncorked the mother of all come-aparts against Paul George & Co.

This time, they fell 121-115. It was the team’s fifth consecutive loss overall, it came against an opponent that had itself been beaten five in a row

Donovan Mitchell, who tried to call a timeout the team didn’t have while trailing by four with 10 seconds to play — resulting in a technical foul and loss of possession 

“I don’t know. I don’t know. It’s the same s---. I don’t know,” he said, his frustration and dejection apparent.

Conversely, Quin Snyder and Rudy Gobert identified plenty of areas where the game went off the rails.

The coach noted that while, yes, the result could have been salvaged if not for the Jazz going an abysmal 17 for 29 at the free-throw line,

guys trying too many times to split double-teams and turning it over instead, and a poor effort on the defensive glass, leading to an abundance of second-chance points.
