BREAKDOWN – Jazz defense by shot charts

The Jazz had a strong defensive night last night holding the Warriors to 33. 6% shooting.   The Warriors hit their season average nearly 40% from 3 but it was near the rim where the Jazz defense took effect.

The Warriors played their starters, who were playing their third game in 4 nights in the pre-season, mostly for the 1st and 3rd quarters against the Jazz starters.   The Jazz did two things very well defensively, they rebounding and they protected the rim.

Here is the 1st quarter shot chart of the Warriors. Notice the Warriors shooting around the basket.
