(KUTV) - As Jazz nation "took note" of Game 3 against the Rockets on Friday, Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and Royce O'Neale spoke of mistakes that (hopefully) won't be made in Game 4 at a press conference Friday night.

"We need to get better shots and we need to be better defensively," Gobert said at the press conference.

It's no secret that the Rockets brought aggression and determination to Game 3. While the Rockets played their best, the Jazz played at their worst.

"They just took us out of rhythm and we can't let that happen again," Mitchell said. "They were aggressive and we got to be able to understand they are going to be aggressive. We got to be able to counter it."

Mitchell, Gobert and O'Neale also commented on several other mistakes made through out the game, such as: missed shots, poor defense and lack of team cohesiveness.

"I think the good thing about it is we know why we lost," Gobert said. "It's better than losing and [you] don't know why."

Game 4 is set for Sunday at 6 p.m. as the Rockets lead the Jazz 2-1.
