There aren’t that many “T’s” in Utah
Despite Boozer getting ejected on Friday, the Jazz remain the opposite-of-leader in technical fouls, i.e. they have the fewest technicals among all teams in the league this season. Which is funny, because Jerry is the league’s career leader in technicals (and the Mailman is also somewhere on the top 10 of that list).
Memo leads the Jazz this season with 4, followed by Deron and Boozer with 3 a piece (so yeah, Boozer only had one this season before Friday). Is this an area where the Jazz can improve?
The three teams with the most technicals are 1) Orlando (84); 2) Boston (82); 3) LAL (69). Cleveland ranks 6th with 59. The Jazz are last with 27. New York and New Jersey, meanwhile, are 26th and 27th, respectively.
