Game 3 - Key to victory: Don't be complacent
The San Antonio Spurs won Game 1 handily, and made all the right adjustments in Game 2. The result was resounding 114-83 victory over the Utah Jazz.
Leading 2-0 in their first-round playoff series against the Jazz, the Spurs should expect a tougher opponent as they head to Salt Lake City for Game 3 in their best-of-seven series.
San Antonio dominated the first two games, and looked particularly unstoppable in their recent win. However, with their home crowd supporting them, the Jazz could be energized to put up a fight.
The Jazz will go back to the drawing board, trying to figure out how to counter the Spurs' attack. The Spurs on the other hand, has to stay focused and can't be complacent as they look forward to a deep postseason run.
San Antonio simply did what they supposed to do and that is held homecourt, they should realize that winning the Game 1 and 2 doesn't guarantee a Game 3 victory.
For that to happen, the Spurs must keep playing team basketball and try their best to take a commanding 3-0 series lead.
The Spurs are definitely the better team, and if Manu Ginobili catches fire, and his teammates keep playing consistent basketball, Utah's postseason appearance will definitely be short-lived.
