It probably won’t matter anyway because Golden State is unfair, but the Warriors may have awakened a sleeping giant. Led by forward Matt Barnes, Warriors players said they would have rather played the Clippers than the Jazz in the second round, because Los Angeles nightlife is awesome and Salt Lake City nightlife is essentially nonexistent.

Now the Jazz have unveiled shirts for Saturday’s Game 3 — the first of the series at Vivint Smart Home Arena — that read #Nightlife across the chest.

This comes after the Salt Lake City tourism bureau fired back at the Warriors to show that their city can actually be fun. Apparently.

There’s nothing for the Jazz to lose here. They’re going up against the heavy title favorites and already lost Game 1 by double digits, although the 106-94 outcome was closer than many people expected.

Any strategy to ignite the team and fan base is worth a shot.
