What a turn around performance by the Utah Jazz! All of their players were dominating the Spurs in the second half! Deron Williams, the point guard for the Jazz as in the picture above, had scored almost 1/3 of his team's total points! He even had eight assists and five steals! I kinda did expect the Jazz to win this game before it had started because if they didn't, they would have set themselves 3 games back to give the Spurs a 3-0 lead. The Jazz had outscored the Spurs in both 3 point field goals as well as the field goal points. I would think that the gap between the scores would have been closer if the Spurs had not substituted their bench players in because they probably had given up at the end of the third quarter. But then again, I guess it was a wise decision to make in order to save the energy of their star players for the next few games ahead.
I also think the Jazz were just feeling a lot more comfortable to be back on their home court to play against the Spurs. It's too bad that Tim Duncan was fouled early in the game. I saw his right eye was badly bruised when he was sitting on the beach. At the end of the game, he has commented that the Jazz were indeed playing very aggressive this time. He also said how tough it was to go against the way the Jazz approached the game, about how it was extremely hard to play defense with their form of offense.
Now that the score is at 2-1 for the Spurs, I'll be looking forward to more games as there will soon be a Game 5 ahead!
Surprisingly, Anthony Kim did not play as well as he should have this round. He has dropped to 6th place after Round 2 even though he managed a score of -1 today which put him at -8 for now. Tim Clark has emerged as the leader as of the end of Round 2, with 11 under par. Somehow he managed to finish with a score of -6 today. Throughout the whole second round, I did not even see him miss a fairway/green.
*Sigh* Due to heavy rains again, this round had to be stopped. Since many were not able to complete their second round yet, the second cut is not done yet. I hope the weather will not be wet during the next few days so that all the players can resume and finish off their remaining holes and to have the second cut made.
