Al Jefferson Now Thinks The Jazz Can Beat The Spurs

Al Jefferson is new to this NBA Playoffs thing, so in a way, it's not too surprising that he slipped up a bit when asked if anyone could have beaten the San Antonio Spurs after Game 3. Here's Jefferson's comment, in case you missed it.

"I just think we’re playing against a team that is at its peak," Jefferson said. "I don’t see nobody beating them."

The series wasn't actually over yet, so this certainly deviated from the script. Luckily for Jefferson, he was given the chance to clarify a bit before Monday's Game 4.

I personally find it hard to get mad at Jefferson for speaking what was on his mind at the time, but I'm also not a Jazz fan. Was he out of line to bury his own team after Game 3? Let us know in the comments.
