Serious Analysis: Game 1 – Jazz-Thunder

The lighter side of Game One between Jazz-Thunder.

Let’s start with the single most important factor in this matchup, adjudicating Game One fashion. Stars rise to the moment when it comes to the Arena Carpet. This is a case for the Fashion Police.

Rule of thumb: If you’re going to wear a suit, wear a suit. It needs a shirt, unless you’re about to go down a slip-and-slid stomach first. Not in mid 50 degree weather in Oklahoma City.

Donovan Mitchell‘s sizzling 27 points in his playoff debut, plus the maroon suit make it a rout over the reigning MVP. If Russ dealt out two more helpers for a triple-double, I might be more generous. Spider’s business attire, definitely beats his casual-wear.

A sneaky good matchup for Game Two – Battle of the Hair Icons – Ricky Rubio vs. Steven Adams.

Sideline edition!

Wonderful vintage look for Dennis Scott. If he didn’t have the pocket square, I’d be chiding him for the length of his tie.
