In the third quarter, however, defense was the name of the game for the Jazz as they held the Warriors to a season-low 17 points, while shooting 7 of 17 for the quarter.
In the historic game against the Pacers, Thompson scored all of his points in just 29 minutes. They are on a road trip, and Utah a home stand. But he's also clearly one of the most personable guys in the league, and I think everyone on the team considers Ingles one of their favorite guys on the roster. Our defensive intensity was fantastic. But that impressive run back matters, and will bring the Jazz's bench some real confidence in future games, even when the starters return. This one was twisted by a backpedalling Steph Curry, who inadvertently stepped on Green's left foot, rolling the ankle. his left ankle again by some friendly fire - this time a backpedalling Curry stepping on his foot - the crowd rose with a glimmer of comeback hope. "Guess they don't like me". "Got me dunks and a few cuts to help me out as well". He got a re-tape and re-entered the game midway through the fourth quarter. The onslaught continued in the second quarter, with a little more life from the Jazz offensively, but by the end of the first half, the Warriors led 64-49, and a blowout seemed imminent. The Dubs have won three in a row, has have the Jazz.
Durant mean-mugged a fallen Lyles briefly and then turned his attention to the crowd, who'd booed him throughout the night. It was a loss of focus, said Kerr after the game. "They didn't fold and we got a little stagnant on offense, it happens, but you just got to be able to finish the game out".
"We were laughing that Quin Snyder kept calling timeouts", Green told reporters after the game via the Mercury News' Anthony Slater.

Unlike the Warriors, the Jazz are a team on the rise, still working to put all of their pieces together. Kevin Durant was hit with his fifth technical of the season for chirping at referee Monty McCutchen late. A ideal example of this is when Stephen Curry hooked his arm with Kevin Durant's as he took his mid-range jumper from the right elbow, and the call ended up going against Joe Johnson, who was standing in the wrong place at the wrong time. They got off to a pretty good start. "That was a stupid tech by me". "It's kind of over my man. Let's just go to the restaurant, have a good dinner and just chill".
