As you may have known or heard, Utah Jazz has been eliminated from the Playoffs. They started well with ‘Spida’ Mitchell on fire in Games 1 and 2, but the Los Ángeles (LA) Clippers came with their fire extinguishers for the subsequent games and Spida could fire no more. It was sad to watch Team ‘Spida’ Mitchell unable to bounce back after leading 2-0. The Number 1 Western Conference Team was sadly eliminated by the Number 4.
One team was hungrier for the win than the other? Or the two-up-Team felt that it was a done-deal and relapsed? Your guess is as good as mine.
Experience was a factor in my opinion; the difference between the vets’/playoff/finals’ teams on one hand compared to the new-kid-on-the-block team on the other. Utah also doesn’t have any such player on their Team.
Clippers’ win was the Team’s first Wéstern Final. They move onto Round 3, the Western Playoffs Championship, against the Phoenix Suns (PS). Series is already in progress with PS leading 2-0. Will Clippers continue their new signature-style and strategy as seen with the Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz? Time will tell. Watch the game tonight at 9:00 PM (Eastern Time) to find out.
Well, on to next season for Team Utah. Thanks for a great and exciting 2020-21 NBA Season.
Congratulations to Utah Center Rudy Gobert though for being the 2020-21 Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year; an award he has won for three consecutive years and overall four times.
Shoutout, as well, to the First and Second All-Defensive Teams. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Yay, too bad that Jeremy Lin stopped playing. I read that he returned to the US and is looking for new opportunities. I hope he finds one – he is great. The back-to-back injuries affected him somewhat. I loved watching him too during his time. I hope you return back to watching bb as there are new, young, and talented players. I love watching the game.
About ‘Spida’ Mitchell … he is the Utah Jazz’s young point guard and key player. I think he’s got the cutest smile; that is, when he’s not being mentally tough on the court. ‘Spida’ is his nickname – click the url to find out more (https://www.dictionary.com/e/slang/spida/).
Awww. Thanks a lot for loving my spirit. So kind. You sound like an equally spirited lady, too.
Thanks for the conversation and great to virtually meet you. 😍✌🏾
Although I quit watching basketball after Jeremy Lin stopped playing, I am interested to know more about ‘Spida’ Mitchell. What a cool name. Love your spirit.
