Mitchell and Ingles shot 30 percent and 34.8 percent at Vivint Smart Home Arena, respectively Cheap Logan Woodside Jersey , with both missing 10 of 14 3-pointers. Crowder finished 8 of 13 on 3s at Toyota Center but was just 2 of 10 at home from deep and missed 15 of 17 shots overall.

Perhaps being forced to dig deep into the bench led to Utah missing 22 shots at the rim in Game 4, or maybe it was the influence of the Houston defense. Whatever the case, the Jazz need hasty improvements.
“You can’t take anything away from them and the way that they play Stephen Vogt Jersey ,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “But in order to beat them you have to be able to convert those opportunities, and we just didn’t.”.
