The Spurs beat the Jazz 105-96 to take a 2-0 series lead. The Jazz needed to stay at most 5 points down to come and steal the game in the last quarter. I don't like the effort from the Jazz, and I expect more from them now on. The Jazz have to keep the Spurs in a half court offensive set because they have been playing great when they pick up the pace in the second quarter.

Jerry Sloan needs to call out his team to get the desire to win back in them. The crowd at Energy Solutions Arena for game 3 has to be extremely rowdy to get them going also.

Tony Parker had 14 points and 17 assists. If he continues to get in the lane as easily as he has in the first two games, it's over for the Jazz. Tim Duncan got 26 points and 14 boards. Duncan was fantastic. The Jazz need to play more zone to stop Parker and Duncan on the inside.
