Spurs vs Jazz: Game Three
Tony Parker’s MVP level play and a sprightly Tim Duncan continued to power the San Antonio Spurs over the Utah Jazz as they took a commanding and near insurmountable 3-0 lead heading into the final game in Utah. With Parker scoring 27 along with Duncan adding in 17 and running the floor like a much younger man, the Spurs were rarely challenged in what ended up being a fairly routine win.
The Jazz were led by a 21 point double from Al Jefferson and Devin Harris who both reached the mark. But it was a mediocre 9 points from usually high scoring power forward Paul Millsap that really let the Jazz down in the long run. Young Gordon Hayward struggled all night, missing 9 of his 10 shots to score only 4 points. Whilst the effort has been there for the Jazz, it is difficult to see anything else than a sweep now.
