The Jazz announced on Thursday afternoon that Rudy Gobert would indeed miss game three of their first round series against the Clippers, which had Spence and Gordon starting off the show with a discussion about whether or not Utah can still pull off the upset, even with the best defensive center in the game on the sidelines. Also, what can Gordon Hayward do to shake off the stiff defense of Luc Richard Mbah a Moute?
Secondly, the NBA playoffs rolled along Wednesday night without the Jazz and Clippers in action, and almost without Russell Westbrook as well. The OKC guard and MVP candidate suffered one of the worst 4th quarters in postseason history as the Rockets overcame a 15-point deficit to go up 2-0 on the Thunder. Spence and Gordon talked about that game and all things playoffs during the second stop of the Split Story.
