With the Utah Jazz going into Game 4 already down 3-0 in their series with the San Antonio Spurs, there doesn’t seem to be any hope of salvaging this series. No team has won a series after losing the first three games and the Jazz aren’t in any danger of changing that statistic.
Utah hasn’t even been able to keep the score close. All three losses have been by 10 points or more but the biggest mistake made by head coach Tyrone Corbin was letting point guard Devin Harris play passively during the first two games of the series.CLICK HERE TO READ MORE »
