Josh and I were so excited to have the opportunity to go to a game-especially with such great seats! We are both HUGE Jazz fans, and I love that we were able to do something fun together that we both enjoy and are passionate about. I must say, the Jazz had a rough start to this season, but they seemed to have stepped up their game lately! (Knock on wood) The game against the Spurs last night was AMAZING!!! So proud of our Jazz!!
And I must mention my new favorite player....SUNDIATA GAINES!!!
(Please let the Jazz sign him!)
We were way bummed that he didn't get more playing time at the game on Saturday. During the 4th quarter, several people in the crowd started chanting his name and when he was finally put in during the last minute, he got a standing "O!" He got the biggest grin on his face. I heart him.
What I would have given to be at the game against the Cavaliers last Thursday. Josh and I were watching the game with some friends, and the Jazz were down by about 5 points, with only 40 seconds or so left in the game, so we figured it was a lost cause and decided to head home. BIG MISTAKE!! What a victory!! All thanks to Mr. Gaines and his game winning shot! The next morning I watched the clip of his shot over and over again. What an exciting moment for him. It reminded me of another similar moment in Jazz history.....The game that John Stockton sent the Utah Jazz to the NBA finals!! I'll never forget watching that game with my dad and both of us jumping up with excitement and high fiving each other. Oh that was awesome. John Stockton is still my favorite Jazz player of all time! I love that they are selling his jerseys again! I REALLY want one for my birthday(hint hint, honey!)
