|Quin Snyder walked into his news conference after Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals with a stoic look http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/ezekiel-elliott-jersey , slowly rubbing his forehead, barely if ever cracking anything that would resemble a smile.
And he was on the winning side.
This much is clear about the Utah Jazz: They are not surprising themselves by being in this position. A team that was written off by Vegas oddsmakers and alleged experts coming into the season after losing Gordon Hayward in free agency won 48 games, ousted reigning MVP Russell Westbrook and Oklahoma City in the first round, and now have the Houston Rockets in a bit of trouble.
The Jazz stole home-court from Houston with a win on Wednesday night, and now look to take a 2-1 lead when the series shifts to Salt Lake City for Game 3 on Friday night.
”When guys have confidence in each other, it allows them, I think, the confidence individually to step up,” Snyder said.
Confidence is not an issue for the Jazz.
Even on a night where Donovan Mitchell shot 6 for 21 and fellow rookie backcourt starter Royce O’Neale shot 2 for 5, the Jazz won thanks largely to a great start and a great bench. Utah’s reserves outscored Houston’s 41-22 in Game 2 and that, combined with a 27-point night from Joe Ingles, was enough for the Jazz.
There’s a pair of Game 3s on the schedule Friday, both out West, and the other being Golden State going to New Orleans. The Warriors lead that matchup 2-0 http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/jason-croom-jersey , the 11th time in Golden State’s last 14 series that they’ve opened with a pair of victories.
”No pressure for us,” New Orleans star Anthony Davis said. ”We just go out there and play, have fun, enjoy the moment and embrace it. The rest will take care of itself. We’re going to make shots here at home and it’s going to be a lot tougher for them.”
Even down 2-0, the Pelicans insist that they can play freely.
Same goes for the Jazz.
Hardly anyone outside of Salt Lake City a few months ago probably expected the Jazz to be in the second round of these playoffs, or to have grabbed home-court away from Houston. Snyder never conceded anything, though, and the Jazz holdovers from the Hayward years say the franchise has improved even in what was supposed to be a transition year.
”I feel like we’re a better team,” Jazz center Rudy Gobert said.
A look at Friday’s games:
WARRIORS AT PELICANS
Warriors lead 2-0. Game 3, 8 p.m. EDT, ESPN.
NEED TO KNOW: While Warriors star Stephen Curry is back from a five-week injury layoff and is expected to start Game 3, New Orleans looked far more competitive after Curry’s return in Game 2. New Orleans had won nine straight – their last five regular season games and a first-round sweep of third-seeded Portland – before a Game 1, 22-point drubbing. New Orleans regrouped for Game 2 and lost by just five points. ”Of course, we wanted to get one up there http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/ryan-groy-jersey , but I think the thing that we took out of it was: Game 1, we got punched in the mouth and Game 2 we came back and responded,” Pelicans All-Star forward Anthony Davis said. ”We didn’t win, but we showed a lot of great signs – and Game 3 we’ll be back at home.”
KEEP AN EYE ON: Warriors forward Draymond Green and Pelicans guard Rajon Rondo. Both veteran players have demonstrated a proclivity toward engaging in mind games and were nose-to-nose at one point in Game 2. Rondo also grabbed the ball and wiped his sweat on it before one Green’s free throws (which Green made anyway).
INJURY UPDATE: Warriors wing player Patrick McCaw hasn’t played since the end of March because of a lumbar spine bruise. It remains unclear when he’ll be ready. Curry has been back for only one game from his sprained left knee. After scoring 28 points in 27 minutes off the bench on Tuesday night, he appears healthy and ready for an expanded role.
PRESSURE IS ON: The Pelicans – even if Davis denies his team is worried about the prospect of a virtually insurmountable 3-0 series deficit to the defending champs.
ROCKETS AT JAZZ
Series tied 1-1. Game 3, 10:30 p.m. EDT, ESPN.
NEED TO KNOW: Adversity, meet the Rockets. A team that had winning streaks of 11, 14 and 17 games in the regular season has now ceded home-court advantage to the Jazz. It’s not panic time for the NBA’s No. 1 overall seed yet – it’s only 1-1 – but Houston must expect Mitchell to shoot better at home in Game 3 than he did on the Rockets’ home floor in Game 2.
KEEP AN EYE ON: Jazz F Joe Ingles. He has been superb in these playoffs, with three 20-point games already (as compared to having only two in the final two months of the regular season). The Aussie is playing with enormous confidence right now.
INJURY UPDATE: Jazz PG Ricky Rubio (hamstring) remains out.
PRESSURE IS ON: Utah. The Jazz know all they’ve done is win one game. Giving the series lead back to Houston in Game 3 would make the challenge of knocking off the Rockets incredibly daunting.

The Latest from the Super Bowl (all times local): 9:20 p.m.
A defensive play helped clinched Philadelphia’s first title in the Super Bowl era in the first 1,000-yard Super Bowl.
Brandon Graham forced a fumble by Tom Brady and Derek Barnett recovered with just more than two minutes remaining, and the Eagles beat the defending champion New England Patriots 41-33.
It was just the sixth defensive stop in 19 possessions at that point. The game’s only sack came after Nick Foles put the Eagles ahead 38-33 on an 11-yard pass to Zach Ertz.
The Eagles added a field goal after Brady’s fumble, and a desperation pass from Brady on the final play landed incomplete in the end zone.
There were 1,151 yards of total offense Robert Newhouse Jersey , breaking the previous record of 929 when Washington beat Denver 42-10 in 1988.
Brady had the first 500-yard passing game in the Super Bowl, breaking his record of 466 from last year in Houston.
Nick Foles threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Zach Ertz, and the Philadelphia Eagles took a 38-33 lead over the defending champion New England Patriots late in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl.
Ertz beat Devin McCourty on a quick-in route and held the ball in front of him as he drove for the goal line. The ball went over the goal line and popped out of Ertz’s hands as he hit the ground.
The ruling was upheld on review, with referee Gene Steratore saying Ertz possessed the ball as a runner before the ball went across the goal line.
It was the 13th scoring possession out of 18 in the game, and the teams had more than 1,100 yards total offense after the score. The previous Super Bowl record was 929 combined yards.
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have taken their first lead in the first 1,000-yard Super Bowl.
Brady threw his second touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski and third overall, and Stephen Gostkowski’s PAT kick gave the Patriots a 33-32 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth quarter.
Brady is on the verge of breaking his record of 466 yards passing from last year’s Super Bowl, when the Patriots rallied to beat Atlanta.
The teams have combined to score on 12 of the game’s 17 possessions.
Nick Foles has 308 yards passing with two touchdowns and another touchdown receiving.
Tom Brady has thrown for more than 400 yards for the second straight Super Bowl, and the New England Patriots are within three of the Philadelphia Eagles for the second time in the second half of the Super Bowl.
The Patriots and Eagles have also set the record for combined yardage in a Super Bowl, before the start of the fourth quarter. The previous record was 929 yards, set when Washington had 602 yards to 327 for Denver in the Redskins’ 42-10 win in 1988.
Brady threw a 26-yard scoring pass to Chris Hogan, pushing him to 404 yards passing and getting the Patriots within 29-26 late in the third quarter.
Brady set the Super Bowl record with 466 yards when the Patriots rallied from 25 points down to beat Atlanta 34-28 in overtime in Houston last year. The other 400-yard game was by Kurt Warner of the St. Louis Rams in a 23-16 win over Tennessee in 2000.
The high-scoring Philadelphia Eagles have answered the New England Patriots again in the Super Bowl.
Nick Foles threw 22-yard touchdown pass to Corey Clement, and the Eagles restored their 10-point halftime lead Tyquan Lewis Jersey , going up 29-19 on the Patriots.
Clement held the ball in his left arm as he took two steps, and a third step appeared to be just out of bounds. The scoring play stood after a video review.
Foles now has two touchdowns passing and one receiving, with 268 yards passing.
Tom Brady had 344 yards passing and a touchdown for the Patriots as the teams have combined for 833 yards midway through the third quarter.
Tom Brady has found his favorite target, and the New England Patriots have drawn closer in the Super Bowl.
Brady had four straight completions to Rob Gronkowski, the last one a 5-yarder for the touchdown that cut Philadelphia’s lead to 22-19.
The 75-yard play got going on Brady’s 25-yard throw to Gronkowski, followed right away by a 24-yarder. After a 14-yard completion and 3-yard run by James White, Brady found his tight end again in the end zone on the opening drive of the second half.
The Super Bowl broadcast on NBC hasn’t gone off without a hitch.
The telecast went dark for several seconds on Sunday night during a commercial break, prompting predictable confusion and frustration from viewers.
NBC Sports issued a statement on Twitter that attributed the darkness to a “brief equipment failure.” The network said no game action or commercial time was missed.
The temperature outside in Minneapolis at halftime was 0 degrees, with a wind chill factor of minus-18 degrees below zero.
Complaints from the TV audience on social media also included criticism of the audio quality during Justin Timberlake’s halftime show at cavernous U.S. Bank Stadium.

Justin Timberlake has paid tribute to Prince during his Super Bowl halftime performance with a cover of ”I Would Die 4 U.”
The singer’s set started out in an underground portion of U.S. Bank Stadium made to look like a club filled with lasers and dancers. Timberlake emerged from into the stadium and performed a dance-filled set that included ”Sexyback” and ”Cry Me A River.”
