Surprising Jazz open playoffs against Thunder

Sports
OKLAHOMA CITY -- After losing Gordon Hayward to the Boston Celtics in the offseason, it looked like it would be a long shot for the Utah Jazz to make the playoffs. But after a rough start, the Jazz won 29 of 34 games before losing their regular-season finale to drop to the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference.

The waiter wrote: "Get paid 30 million for 3 years and tips this!!! You're trash."The photo showed a $ 487.13 bill, with Roberson leaving a $ 13.97 tip.
