How do you get superstars?
You draft your core, you trade up when available, and parlay up, and then you augment in free agency…

Part of our job is to tell the story of Salt Lake, you know, that everybody’s, you, torn up by this Arctic blast, and we’ve had this…relatively mild winter, and great weather, and good people, and arena full of people, and great fans.

So, you know, there’s no running around the fact. We haven’t said any one of our young players, you know, is a John Stockton, Karl Malone franchise player. With that said, neither was John or Karl the first couple years.

So, you know, some of our young players will have the first bite at the apple to develop, you know, into core and franchise guys, and then we’ll evaluate that, and we’ll continue to draft, and we’ll look at, again, parlaying up via trade, and we’ll tell our story to free agents, and we have a job to do.

And you know, if it’s a model like the Pistons had where you have five really good starters that make you a contender, then that means it’ll be our model, if we’re not going to be star-driven like a LeBron James or a Kevin Durant. So, there’s many ways to team-build.

What do you think of the one-and-done rule?
In many cases, you know, I’d say I prefer, I’m more old-school that I’d like more looks at a guy, and more maturity coming into the league. But I certainly understand players’, parents’, agents’ point of view that you do have a right to work.

What are your thoughts on how the Jazz are playing of late?
You can’t run away from the record. They, we’ve struggled. You know, we’ve struggled in a couple of different areas. You know, and there’s no question that the season’s getting on our back from a load standpoint.

You know, Trey [Burke] hasn’t played anywhere close to this number of games. You know, Gordon [Hayward] is in a much different role being one of our primary players. Derrick [Favors] has adjusted from, you know, being a part-time “four,” part-time “five” to more of the anchor at the “five.” You know, Enes [Kanter] has [bounced] back and forth between positions. He’s currently, you know, dealing with a, you know, some mild tendinitis in the knee ’cause of the increased minutes.

So you know, I didn’t have expectations. I just wanted to evaluate the season for what it was, what it is, and you know, what we’ll finish up to be. And then, you know, evaluate Gordon in a new role.

And Alec Burks, this is by far the most minutes he’s ever played. He’s done, he’s played in a much different role as our primary offensive substitute off the bench. You know, I think Ty[rone Corbin] has given him, and all of really our primary ball-handlers more space to operate and drive. And there’s times when there’s flashes of brilliance and, you know, at the rim, and getting to the free throw line, and then at times there’s, you know, driving into the pack and too many turnovers.

So you know, hopefully we’re learning our lessons. They’re tough lessons, and you know, we’ll add it all up at the end, and make a bunch of value judgments. (1280)

Game 76 of 82: Utah Jazz vs. New Orleans Hornets (24-52)

April 5, 2014

Pre-Game Quotage
** Derrick Favors, asked to summarize his season
I think I had a pretty good season. You know, had a couple up and downs, and you know, people say this and that or whatever. I think, personally, I think I had a good season this year…I got better offensively, you know, past three years I been here, and I showed a lot of new stuff that y’all didn’t see that I had, and I think I got a lot better.
** Favors, asked whether he feels like he has go-to moves now
Yeah, I got a couple moves. You know, I can do, just the point of getting the ball in the right spot, and just having patience, and you know, just getting to the move and finishing.
** Trey Burke, asked what specifically this team needs
I think first and foremost, we need to find our identity as a team, and you know, move on from there.
** Burke, asked for his thoughts on Utah
I definitely plan on being here for as long as, you know, this organization wants me to be here. I’ve embraced it a lot since I’ve been here. I didn’t really know how I would adjust when I got traded on that, on draft night, you know, for the simple fact that I had never been to Utah. I didn’t know anyone, not one person in Utah, and you know, it was kinda like my first time ever moving that far away from home. So it was a little intimidating at first, but you know, the fan base, they’ve done a great job of embracing me, you know, through the good and bad…I love it here.
** Gordon Hayward on what he hopes to accomplish in the final seven games
Oh, just to get better. I mean, just to, try to improve on our mistakes. And win some basketball games.

Another look, because one isn’t enough:

Post-Game Quotage
** Tyrone Corbin on the game
I thought the guys, for a stretch, they were executing the offense really well. I thought we were a little better defensively tonight. We made a few turnovers there…we had 17 turnovers for 21 points, but you know, we gotta continue to get better there.
** Corbin, asked how the game changed when Anthony Davis returned
We play our game. Anthony Davis is their problem. It’s not ours. We play, we call our plays and sets and we wanna be able to attack inside. I mean, he made some plays in the first half. I, you coach against the guys on the floor. You gotta axe him how the game affected them with him out there on the floor.
** Corbin on what the team needs to do
Well you know, we talked about just being able to finish games, and you know, we still, you know, we have to have the energy to have a chance to compete, you know, from where we are with our development. And you know, it’s been a long year for these guys, man. They’ve been through a lot and you know, we just gotta make sure we stay on the same page, that we are who we are right now, and we have to have everybody focus on what we need to do to have a chance to be successful and finishing strong. We’re not just try and come out here and get the games over. We wanna try and make sure we continue to develop.

brown america

** Derrick Favors on the third quarter
You know, we just wanted to come out with a lot of energy. I mean, myself included, you know, I played like crap in the first half, you know, and I owed it to my teammates to come out and play with effort, play as a team, you know, just, and get this win.
** Gordon Hayward on Favors
He did a great job for us. He was a monster in the first half, defensively too, with those blocks, and we need him to do that…Derrick’s a monster, like I said. You know, he’s tough to deal with, so we need him to play like that every night.
** Hayward, asked about Alec Burks’ acrobatics (by Craig Bolerjack, obviously)
You just gotta watch him, when he has some ups, up-and-unders, Houdinis, like you like to say. And it’s fun to watch, man. He’s a good player.

Whoa!
just realized Miller starting over Aminu

WHAT?!?
I came in a little late, dafuq?

With 5:10 to go in 2nd quarter
Reke makes his first FG

by Oleh on Apr 4, 2014 | 8:53 PM

Trey Burke just made his first FG with 2.51 remaining
so it evens out

by whodatcoreydat on Apr 4, 2014 | 9:00 PM

Burke has hit the rookie wall though
What is Reke’s excuse? :)

More back spasms for AD
I’m seriously at a loss the Pels keep trotting him out there at less than 100%. Not that something tragic is likely to happen but is it really worth it?

Bits from Practice, 4/2 and 4/3

corbin

** Tyrone Corbin, asked whether he’s given thought to playing the younger guys with the Jazz being out of the playoffs
We’re playing younger guys already.
But Rudy [Gobert] hasn’t played many minutes. More minutes?
We’ll see. If the opportunity presents itself, we’ll see.

** Corbin, asked what it’s like to coach this team at the end of the season
You know, it’s, you know, one of the things that we understood from the beginning where we were, and I played in this league, man. It’s, you know, you’re playing with young guys. I played on an expansion team when I was one of the young guys, and it’s a difficult thing, every game, trying to understand what you’re working for.

And you know, even if you’re not winning games, you’re playing to get better. But you wanna be as good as you can be. So, the message has been all year, it’s, “Look. You know, everybody’s gonna talk and have an opinion about where we are. We have to have an idea of where we are, what we’re doing and what’s best for us now and going forward.”

And you wanna cry and, try and create a winning attitude in where you are, and you play to try and win, not just being on the floor. Some guys have expectations just because I’m young and we’re developing, I can just be on the floor. Well, we wanna work the right way to create good habits, and it’s not gonna be every night…

And it’s not easy. You know, and a lot of people said and these guys at times think that they should be out there. They should just be on the floor and make mistakes and continue to make mistakes and learn. And that’s not necessarily the best way to handle it.

swinging--feet

** Corbin, asked if Enes Kanter is becoming more of a professional
He’s still a young, young guy, man, and young guys are gon, they wanna have some fun. And they don’t realize at times it’s work and it’s a job. But I think he have a better understanding now than he did a year ago, of what it takes and as his role increase, how his play have to become more consistent, beca–so he can be a great pro.

** Corbin, on what he wants to see from Enes Kanter on the court
Well, consistency on both ends of the floor. You know, defensively, he understand wher–he’s gotten better, especially of late. And playing his guy, the weak side rotations, trying to be a big body where he’s not as athletic as some of the other guys may be, but his positioning, getting there quickly, and then using his size, not bailing out on plays, being the guy, learning when to take a foul and not let a guy go to the basket, because you’re there, and just to sit and set the tone that way.

** Corbin, asked to evaluate Trey Burke’s rookie season
It’s still going on. So, we’re still working to get better. Well, he’s had some experiences. He’s learned a lot, you know? After the summer, and then the beginning of the year, and being hurt, and coming back, and having some successes, not playing so well, at stretches, and fighting back, and playing well again. So, it’s the NBA season, and he’s still focused on working to get better.

** Corbin, asked if Diante Garrett has been his nicest surprise
He’s been one of ‘em. You know, he’s been one of ‘em. We’ve had some good stories this year, man. I mean, you know, from a guy like Rudy, who we didn’t know if we were going to have a chance to get him into games this year, he’s worked his way in to play a few games this year, and getting better with us, instead of spending extended amount of time down in the D-League [although he's] been down a few times.

Ian [Clark] is a young guy that’s worked his way, we haven’t had a chance to get him a lot of time on the floor of late. We’re trying to get him in a little bit more, but he has a better understanding of what we’re looking for, what he has to work on to get better in this league. And so, along with Diante coming in from where he was, and working his way into the rotation, and playing valuable minutes for us.

burke

** Trey Burke on what he’s learned going against the top point guards in the league
I would say, it’s just, you know, not ever getting discouraged. You know, some nights, guys are gonna have really good nights on you. And some nights, you’re gonna have really good nights on other guys. You know, it’s just the reality of the league, you know? There, these are the best players in the world, and for me, being a young point guard, I have to continue to get better so you know, I can be, you know, one of those top guards someday. That’s my goal.

** Burke, asked what he likes best about living in Salt Lake City
I say the moun’uns*, and just the people, man. I think the people embraced me as soon as I got here, and that’s the best part about it, man. You know, I didn’t know how I would adjust when they, when I got drafted here, but I adjusted pretty quickly, and I’m glad to be here.

* That’s how Burke said “mountains.” He’s in Utah to stay, guys. Career Jazzman for sure.

garrett

** Diante Garrett on whether Utah feels like home
Yeah, I have an apartment right down the street [from the practice facility]. I stay in the same building with Marvin [Williams], Malcolm [Thomas] and Trey…My mom came out and they told me my place is all cozy and feels like home, and I’m like, “Yeah, you’re right. It does.” So, it feels good.

** Garrett, asked if he’d like to stay in Utah
Yeah, I think so, yeah. For sure.

On the top prize of this year’s Leapin’ Leaners auction
This year, I’ve added a new component to [the auction] as well, and I’ve enjoyed being able to go out pheasant hunting with Jerry Sloan. And so, I was able to get the pheasant-hunting company to donate an opportunity to go out pheasant hunting with the president of the Jazz [i.e. Rigby], and the legendary coach, Jerry Sloan.

Now, on top of that, I was able to also, since, when we retired Jerry’s number, we gave him, for his home, a jersey with “1223″ “Sloan” on the back. I had one other one made, and we’re gonna take that one and have it autographed by Jerry, with also the John Deere hat that was, a limited number we gave away.

You’re gonna be able to auctio–buy, if you are the top bidder, be able to get that hunting trip with also those autographed items from Jerry Sloan. I mean, sump’n really special, so.

Click here for a fantastic Jerry Sloan hunting story.

hunt auction

Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony are the two best scorers in the game. What lessons can you learn from playing them back-to-back?
Well, I know that, one of the things that Ty[rone Corbin] is constantly saying to our players in there is, is that, “You’re here. We’re doing everything we can to help you learn and to help you compete in this league. And you oughta be watching what these other teams do to be able to not only play, but at a certain point, step up their games.”

And we’ve seen that at New York. We saw, all of a sudden, that team, and veteran players, how veteran players can play at a level, but when they know they need to, and as they prepare for the playoffs, they’re working to step up their game.

And that, we’re trying to teach our players, “You know what, guys? You need to learn how to do the same thing.”…We’ve gotta continue to improve and be in that same level.

Tyrone Corbin plans to individually talk to all the young players
I had an opportunity yesterday to also talk with Ty a little bit, and you know, he told me, that, you know, one of the things he’s gonna be doing is sitting down with the, our players, our younger players, and really, even though we’ll have exit interviews, we know that’s pretty short, those exit interviews.

He wanted to take opportunity to also be wor–talking to them one on one in the next couple weeks about their game and about what they’re doing, at, with, when he has a, since he still has a little more time, about how they need to work. And I appreciate what Ty said to me.

And this is not, in any indication at all. But he says, you know, and, “I don’t know where this season ends up necessarily, where we’re gonna finish up, as it relates to my own career. But this is the right thing I need to do for the good of their careers.”

And I think that speaks to who Ty Corbin is, of the character he is, of caring about these players, and doing his job that he committed to, all the way through the 82 games.

How fluid is your draft board right now?
We have to be ready at all times, to really be looking at every player, or every scenario, and you know, when we put together that list, we’re literally looking at our top 60 players. And not only 60 players, ’cause you’re drafting 60, right? There’s 60 potential. But you’ve also got that list of those that you’re gonna be inviting to your camp.

So, we’re looking at that whole list of potential, that we anticipate could be potential, and then those that end up being the, actually those that are available for the draft. And measuring, and where we’ve made, ranked them, on a list, and our guys are working feverishly, in really putting that list together, analyzing it.

Every time I walk into our, we have a theater room, that we, it’s kinda our draft central, that Dennis [Lindsey], Justin [Zanik], and I know we have a lot of our interns and support, that are in there. They’re in there, breaking down film constantly.

And then they’re going out on the road and looking at this, of getting ready, and making sure that we’ve done all the necessary homework, and prepared for every scenario in case a player comes off that, or something happens, that we’re ready for any potential that we have to change.

Has this season been what you expected?
It’s been as tough as I had anticipated, but every bit as t–as difficult, as we anticipated with it. And there’ve been some stretches that have been hard. There’ve been, thank goodness, a few wins that have made it very satisfying, and our fans, we all needed those wins when we needed them.

Because it’s tough. No one likes to lose. This is a, you’re competing and you’re wanting to be able to win, and you take it personal, you know, when your team loses, I think. And so it, there’s been moments where it’s been hard, but you know what, I’ve been very gratified that our fans have stayed with us, have been very supportive.

They’ve seen it. They’ve been supportive of the plan. I think the plan is very much alive and well. It’s working well. I think we’re excited about the potential of what this draft means for us and what we can do. We’re excited about the development we’ve seen with our players…

And we’re in, financially, a very good place, to continue to be better, and to put the pieces together to see this team continue to make nice strides to be where we want it to be. (1280)

Bits from Sidney Lowe Interview, 4/1

What happened in the second half of the game against the Knicks?
Well, one, we didn’t make shots. You know, we had some open looks, some open situations, and we didn’t make shots. And then they made shots. And Carmelo [Anthony] came out and made some shots, and J.R. Smith made some tough shots…They got the momentum going in their favor, and you know, they were able to go on and win the game.

** Gordon Monson asking Sidney Lowe about losing, #UDQM: Can you address that a little bit, in what you try and do to pump guys up a little?

Lowe: Well, you know, one, you’re glad to see that they, you know, that they hurt. But, and I think part of it is because, you know, these guys have continued to play hard…It’s just frustrating when you’re, you know, you’re working hard at it and working hard at it, and you just can’t seem to pull the, pull the win out.

This is not a leading question, but how complicated is it to get more transition and fast-break baskets? Do you have to have the personnel to accomplish that?
I think it’s a combination of things. You know, certainly, you know, personnel can dictate that, but I think, just, you know, if we can get stops. You know, get stops and then get out and run. We certainly are a different team, and at times we’re effective when we can get out and run.

When we can, you know, we get stops and we push the ball down the floor, and get some easy baskets. That’s very beneficial for us, because of, you know, some of the guys we have…We don’t do it enough, you know, consistently.

We don’t look to push that ball, and you have to get some easy baskets in this league, expecially* when you’re playing against, you know, experienced teams that just execute you to death. You know, you can’t beat ‘em in the half-court game, so, but some of that starts on the defensive end, and that’s getting stops, and then being able to run.

* Not a typo.

What is the usefulness of the remaining seven games?
Well, you know, to continue to play. I mean, you, you know, you’re still trying to win games and you’re still trying to, you know, one of the things with teams is, you try to learn how to win.

You have to learn how to win down the stretch. You have to learn how to win games. It’s not gonna be a lot of blowouts, and sometimes it takes teams a little longer to get it. But you know, you just need those few, to win, to get that attitude and that feeling that you’re never out of a ball game.

Why did Marvin Williams start over Enes Kanter against the Knicks?
Well, I think that was based on the match-up situation. Once we found out that [Amar'e] Stoudemire wasn’t playing and that Carmelo was gonna be starting at “four,” C♥ach decided to start Marvin to match up a little better with Carmelo.

So, you know, going forward, I’m not sure, you know, it’s C♥ach’s decision what he’s gonna do with that. But I know that that certainly had something to do with it last night.

You are a veteran coach that has been around the block. What is the human side for you as a coach to be with a team that’s only won 23 games so far this season?
You know, it’s tough. I mean, it’s very tough. You know, I’ve been fortunate that I’ve been with some good teams and I’ve, you know, I’ve been with teams that have gone to the Western Conference Finals. I’ve been with Detroit, gone to the Eastern Conference Finals. You know, we’ve had four All-Stars in Detroit. We had two, three All-Stars in Minnesota.

So, yeah, you know, it’s difficult. It’s difficult because you know the other side. And obviously, as a competitor, I hate losing. But at the same time, you know, we, you have to be realistic in a sense of looking at your team and finding other goals. Winning is always the most important thing, but you also have to look at the other things.

You have to look, again, you know, are we getting better? Are the players getting better? Are the younger guys, are they improving, in different areas? Are they better defensively? Individually, are they better? Offensively? Are they better as a team? Working, collectively?

So you know, you look for those things, and as you talked about earlier, you know, you look for the guys who can finish games for you. What guys are capable of making plays for you?

So you know, there’s so much still to learn from these losses. There’s a lot to learn, and you find the character of your guys. You know, I’m one, I like to look at players after a loss. I want to see the reactions. I want to see, right after the game, I want to see, after the game, after we get on the bus, after we get on the pla–there’s certain things I want to look at to help me as a coach, to tell me a little bit about players.

So, because I’ve been around guys that have won. I’ve been with winners, and I know how you should feel, I guess, what I think you should feel, and how you should react. (1280)

Game 75 of 82: Utah Jazz vs. New York Knicks (23-52)

Quotage
** Sidney Lowe at halftime
Unfortunately, they play small. So, we’re not accustomed to playing small. But you know, I thought our guys did a nice job matching up.

** Tyrone Corbin on the third quarter
Missed shots. You know, we, you know, we were right there…They went on a, I think it was a 12-2 run to finish that quarter, and that’s, you know, that’s the difference in the game. And they got, you know, six or eight free throws in that stretch, and we turned the ball over a few times. And you know, we, it’s happened to us last few games. We hit that little lull, and we just can’t score, and it’s the difference in the game for us. So, it happened again tonight. We just gotta keep fighting and try and get better.
** Corbin, asked how Marvin Williams did defending Carmelo Anthony
Made him work. I mean, that’s all you can really axe from a guy like him.
** Corbin, asked what he can do to improve the offense
Well, it’s where we are, you know? Before Friday? We gotta go, just keep working…We are who we are for now, so I mean, we have to work with what we have.

** Gordon Hayward, asked what was the biggest problem in the third quarter
Execution offensively. For whatever reason, we didn’t figure out the way they were guarding all our plays. And too many turnovers, so.
** Trey Burke on the game
Tonight, it felt like we had another opportunity to win the game. You know, I didn’t have my best game, personally, and we didn’t play as good as a team, so, or as good as we know we can as a team, and then coming off the loss to Oklahoma City yesterday, you know, it’s frustrating. It definitely is, but we gotta persevere through this time.
** Marvin Williams on “growing pains”
We’re super young. You know, we’re super, super young, and any time you go really young like that, you’re gonna have some growing pains. And that’s exactly what you call ‘em. I think guys are really excited about the progress that we’ve made, you know, each month, throughout the season.

Chandler was limping because he got hit in the ear?

Aldrich’s play really highlights how little of a shit Tyson’s been giving this season
by GAx on Mar 31, 2014 | 9:26 PM

Aldrich is playing better than Chandler on defense no question.
by SamUNCNYK on Mar 31, 2014 | 9:26 PM

It’s simple
He’s trying. That’s basically it.

Cole doesnt have fingers

If we fucking lose this game..
by GAx on Mar 31, 2014 | 9:34 PM

This Burke Burks thing is annoying
by BJabs on Mar 31, 2014 | 9:44 PM

Seriously if we lose this game..
by GAx on Mar 31, 2014 | 9:45 PM

Oh my god, Sixers just GIVING this one away
Fuuuuuuuck

by BernardKing’Speech on Mar 31, 2014 | 9:46 PM


This Kanter character looks like he has Lego hair
Like it just snaps on and off like a helmet

by BernardKing’Speech on Mar 31, 2014 | 9:53 PM

holy SHIT the Jazz are so bad
by GAx on Mar 31, 2014 | 9:56 PM

why is woodson bothering drawing up plays
by JRmyth on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:05 PM

cuz phil is watching
by Bronx Chica on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:06 PM

Pacers imploding
I love it

by DiscountTripleCheck on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:15 PM

Me too. Hibbert calling out his own team and PG no longer the golden darling. They have everything to lose and we have everything to gain.
Also fuck Vogel. but also fuck Woodson too. conflicted.

by foiegrastyle on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:19 PM

Shumpert is pretty useless this game
by lololol on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:24 PM

by JRmyth on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:26 PM

Blocked by RJ?
cmon Tyson

by rcnt123 on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:32 PM

Another one of our draft picks used against us. Hayward could have helped this team.
by CircleL4 on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:39 PM


I actually like this Jazz team
They need more talent, veterans, and a new coach but they have some good kids on the roster. They could be good with a little more direction.

by allzingers on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:39 PM

me too

Got league pass on, the Utah local commercials are incredible
relative to how horrid the announcing is league-wide, these guys are actually decent

by BernardKing’Speech on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:40 PM

Funeral home commercial actually shows an old WWII vet
sitting in his leather chair, with his WWII hat on, then cuts to a shot of cemetery, and talks about how they’ve always taken the best care of our nation’s veterans lol

by BernardKing’Speech on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:42 PM

Kanter isnt very good
by ibnyc on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:42 PM

I’d kill for Kanter to be on our team
by Spades17 on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:47 PM

Marvin Williams is fouling Melo every possession this quarter
by abe88 on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:41 PM

lololol
Jazz are Mauling Melo
That is so dumb

by lololol on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:44 PM

Jazz going full stupid
by foiegrastyle on Mar 31, 2014 | 10:44 PM


GOLDEN SNITCH!
Game over

by DiscountTripleCheck on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:00 PM

Felton floater! Game over!
by CircleL4 on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:00 PM

FELTON FLOATER!
Fucking disgusting..

by Rubbercons on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:00 PM

Snitch caught
Shut it down.

by allzingers on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:00 PM

It’s so demoralizing. A Penguin dropping a floater on your team
by foiegrastyle on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:00 PM

Good effort, Tyson … you asshole.
by RenaldoStoleMyCheetos on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:03 PM

When Melo actually tries he’s a good defender
by allzingers on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:04 PM

Raymond with a pull-up J? Alright then.
by RenaldoStoleMyCheetos on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:08 PM

Felton making those shots only encourages more Feltonian play.
by CircleL4 on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:08 PM

nah. hayward sit down. u got J’d by felton. nah bro. nah
by JRmyth on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:08 PM


TYSON! WHAT THE FUCK DUDE!?!?
by Rubbercons on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:09 PM

Stepped right out the way. Talk about fuck winning.
by Rubbercons on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:10 PM

The end of bench people should never enter any NBA game ever again
The whole lot of them

by BJabs on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:11 PM

This is only 2 people
Murry and Tyler. Maybe Tyler should enter a game, but it’s borderline

by BJabs on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:12 PM

Only the Knicks
could still make you feel nervous when they’re up double digits with 2 minutes left against the 29th offensively-ranked Jazz.

by Knuxter on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:13 PM

Yes, we need Shannon Brown to do his grandpa trot out to the court.
by CircleL4 on Mar 31, 2014 | 11:13 PM
