A few thoughts after the game:

  • Everyone was making the same comment during Game 3: Fesenko just earned himself several million dollars. He’s not in the Ostertag-after-playing-Shaq-strong mode, but maybe in the Marcin Gortat range. As many have mentioned, his 3 assists tied him with Chauncey Billups.
  • How about Millsap? He carried the Jazz in the second quarter while Carlos Boozer and I scored the same amount of points. Millsap’s footwork on the baseline is spectacular. He’s even picked up a bit of a nasty shake-and-bake move from the top of the key. At one point he even put on a reasonable Deron Williams impersonation to get loose, only to lose the ball. Still, it’s was man’s work for Millsap.
  • Boozer wasn’t scoring and was generally making me crazy, but he did end up playing strong and helping keep Denver’s bigs to only 13 points. I’ll chalk it up to his strained oblique, but it’s always fun to watch him watch a loose ball like a spectator. Meanwhile, Kyle Korver came from about 6 feet behind to dive for the loose ball and solidify his future as governor of Utah, especially after hitting a big 3 on the other end.
