Two not very great rosters playing tonight.

by jnicho20 on Dec 1, 2016 | 10:03 PM

why is Mcuseless in the corner and why did he take that shot
by IceColdChiefs on Dec 1, 2016 | 10:35 PM


Utah is drilling 3’s
hope they go cold

by 2qbn on Dec 1, 2016 | 10:37 PM

Ingles
playing the role of Ellington

by 2qbn on Dec 1, 2016 | 10:51 PM

DANGIT THESE THREES ARE KILLING US
by IceColdChiefs on Dec 1, 2016 | 10:52 PM

dam these Jazz 3s….
by NameAndSurname on Dec 1, 2016 | 10:52 PM

McBest performance of the season thus far!
by macaronioverlord on Dec 1, 2016 | 11:02 PM

What a battle!!!
by Reality Czech on Dec 1, 2016 | 10:59 PM

Utah’s Joe Jesus #1 and Joe Jesus #2 (Joe Ingles), and Hayward are killing us
by macaronioverlord on Dec 1, 2016 | 11:07 PM


THIS IS THE MOST ENTERTAINING GAME OF THE SEASON
I am on the edge of my seat

by IceColdChiefs on Dec 1, 2016 | 11:14 PM

Oh no
please let them go cold at the most important time

by 2qbn on Dec 1, 2016 | 11:16 PM

Best win of the season
by mike.slick.921 on Dec 1, 2016 | 11:19 PM

And Cavs lost. The perfect evening!
by Reality Czech on Dec 1, 2016 | 11:22 PM

Sorry if I repeat myself a lot this year, but Heat need to go all in for Hayward in free agency.
by Reality Czech on Dec 1, 2016 | 11:41 PM

Good luck getting him away from Utah
They are gonna open the bank for him.

sweet! games on nbatv
boo for having to listen to harpring though

by thatguyisgood on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:10 PM

let’s guard Rodney Hood this time
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:11 PM

Rodney Hood can never miss against us
i don’t know why

by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:17 PM

Yuck, 7-0 run
by eastman88 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:20 PM

Damn, he really doesn’t miss
by iCheerio on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:20 PM

our defense is garbage
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:25 PM

Water is wet.
by Bobbythegreat on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:25 PM

Why does it seem like Hood always lights us up?
by TexansRocketsStros on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:25 PM


So that’s the type of game it’s going to be.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:27 PM

Ok, they really can’t miss
by TexansRocketsStros on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:33 PM

They hit every shot
Didn’t matter if we defended or not.

by eastman88 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:34 PM

Lol
Rodney Hood = Michael Jordan apparently

by Relocated_astro on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:34 PM

MJ shot nothing but midrange and dunks at 49%
Hood is shooting 3s at 100%
At least the rockets clamped up MJ whenever we played him

by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:36 PM

This is just about
unwatchable.

by Bobbythegreat on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:40 PM

they cant miss a 3, we cant make a 3
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:44 PM

Its like we took a time machine back to 2015-16
by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:44 PM


poor box out Dek
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:45 PM

Probably shouldn’t be asking him to box out Gobert.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:46 PM

But, you know, constant switching.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:46 PM

Even worse when you are playing a SF at PF
and switching them on a monster like Gobert

by Bobbythegreat on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:47 PM

This is like the Toronto game
I wholeheartedly expect the Jazz to shoot something like 60% tonight, when you’re on, you’re on.
And Utah has always fucked Houston over by weird rando occurrences.

by Relocated_astro on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:51 PM

I hope we do whatever is possible to prevent a playoff series against them, especally if they get homecourt
If that means going from the 4 seed to the 6 seed, so be it

by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:52 PM

we’re going to lose by a lot tonight
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:52 PM

Why does Hood always go off against Houston?
I don’t know what the city or the rockets have done to piss him off

by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:01 PM

At least D’Antoni can make halftime adjustments
by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:06 PM


The Jazz just missed a 3, badly
things are looking up

by bt20 on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:19 PM

Ffs stop fouling.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:38 PM

just when we cut the lead down
we decided to be idiots

by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:56 PM

Wow, that was a stupid pass attempt.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:57 PM

now Joe Johnson is killing us
guard somebody

by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:59 PM

let’s see if we can avoid losing by 20
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:06 PM

Gordon Hayward free stroking it
no one interested in contesting at all

by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:09 PM


at least future jazz Kyle Wiltjer gets to play
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:10 PM

Right?
He’ll totally be on that team.

by eastman88 on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:11 PM

eew
always hated losing in SLC

by PunkRocket on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:20 PM

It happens fairly often it seems.
Jazz have always been a good home team.

by eastman88 on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:21 PM

They are with the guidance of
the evil spirit of Sloan in that building

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Canis Hoopus.

let’s hope for a win tonight!
I am envious of some of the players the Jazz have. Mainly their best, Hayward, Gobert and Hood are all awesome and their addition of George Hill was smart.

Posted by Name-Game on Nov 28, 2016 | 7:00 PM

Score 100 on the Jzz!
Cause the Jzz to score less than 100!!

7 minutes in… we haven’t made a 2 point shot
Posted by jonboy11 on Nov 28, 2016 | 7:21 PM

This offense is hideous.
Ricky in the corner makes me sad.

It’d be nice if we stopped just giving the ball away
Posted by jandersh on Nov 28, 2016 | 7:41 PM

Why do we keep letting Shabazz throw up bricks and not play any defense but still give him minutes?
Posted by jonboy11 on Nov 28, 2016 | 7:42 PM

did you see his abs, dude’s ripped bro
Posted by Russian Bee the Revolution Fuck SBNation on Nov 28, 2016 | 7:43 PM

at least we don’t have to listen to Matt Hapring

sneyder looks so crazy man
Posted by Russian Bee the Revolution Fuck SBNation on Nov 28, 2016 | 7:50 PM

Quinn Snyder has definitely killed multiple hookers, right?
Posted by googoleeoottooooleeoottooooleeeatta on Nov 28, 2016 | 7:59 PM

Simultaneously or in total?
Actually, I think the answer’s the same.

Posted by Manna from Heaven on Nov 28, 2016 | 8:05 PM

Probably on par
With the Green River killer

Posted by Name-Game on Nov 28, 2016 | 8:00 PM


Trade Wiggins for Inggles
Posted by Russian Bee the Revolution Fuck SBNation on Nov 28, 2016 | 8:00 PM

We may have to throw in a pick.
I’d start with lottery protected, but be willing to go down to top 5.

Posted by Quality Jason on Nov 28, 2016 | 8:02 PM

Every NBA team pre-1981 had at least one player who looked like Joe Ingles..
League rule

Posted by SoDakHammer on Nov 28, 2016 | 8:05 PM

I had to switch over to Utah feed cause my Wolves is freezing
but I got to find out that they call Ingles “Jingling Joe.”

Posted by Quality Jason on Nov 28, 2016 | 8:06 PM

how are we letting a frenchie dominate us
Posted by Joel Hernandez on Nov 28, 2016 | 8:09 PM

Ingles is Australian, Joel

These guys are way too good individually to be this bad as a team

Lyles sealed it

Quinn will let the team eat tonight now
Posted by Joel Hernandez on Nov 28, 2016 | 9:18 PM

Yeah KAT you deserved to get stuffed on the last play of the game. Stop missing layups. Play solid defense like you’re supposed to do.
Posted by jonboy11 on Nov 28, 2016 | 9:22 PM

Didn’t watch this one
I have to say life is a lot more enjoyable when you abstain from all Minnesota sports. I went for a jog got some fresh air checked the box score said yup sounds about right and moved on. Thats about as much time as I’ll give this team. 10+ years of god awfulness will do it. Seasons not about wins its about dunks.

This Week in the Utah Jazz

November 28, 2016

One. Happy Thanksgiving!

thanksgiving

YOU NAME IT!!!!! Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!! 🦃🦃🦃🦃🦃🦃🦃

A video posted by @indianageorge3 on

 

Two. Love this so much. Literally half the team showed up!

stars-tweets

Trey Lyles on seven Jazz players attending the SLC Stars game: Everybody knew a couple guys were gonna go, and then a lot of guys just showed up. We justed wanted to go out there and show support. This is the first time we were home and they had a game, so we wanted to go watch them…[Joel Bolomboy] told us w–he was playing the night before, so we knew that. So, we all were talking about going on the plane on the plane ride home.

Quin Snyder (who was there too) on Jazz players turning out to support Joel Bolomboy: It says a lot about Joel too, that the guys would think to do that and want to come support him.

bolomboy-tweet

Three. Topic of the Week: Rudy Gobert’s hands.

Trey Lyles on Rudy Gobert’s hands: He’s getting a lot better. You know, last year it was kind of bad, but this year, you know, he’s catching a lot more balls. And you know, we’re giving him confidence. We’re staying on him about it, and he’s, you know, really taken a focus to it.

Gordon Hayward on Rudy Gobert’s hands: Well, I mean, I think he’s getting better. I think with him, it’s more anticipation of, you know, like, being ready for the ball. I mean, he’s got big hands, so I mean, he’s, he should be able to catch those, and I think he will. It’s just something where he’s gotta be mentally focused and mentally ready thinking that the ball’s coming to him every time. So, you know, it’s good they’re working with him.

Quin Snyder on Rudy Gobert’s hands: Rudy’s trying to get better…He’s committed to it and hopefully will continue to get better.

George Hill on working with Rudy Gobert on his hands: I tell him every day we gotta work on at least 100 catches where you’re just throwing bullet passes and things in traffic to get his hands better. ‘Cause, I tell him that’s, you know, six, eight points a game where maybe we bobble it [or] we don’t throw it, you know, good, and we miss the opportunity to get an easy bucket, things like that. So, just trying to help him out.

Rudy Gobert on working with George Hill: I just wanted to show him that I can catch, and I told him to learn to throw lobs too.

Flashback: Rudy Gobert on his hands, locker room cleanout 2016: My hands are good…People think I got bad hands. I think I have good hands, to be honest.

Four. Tame in comparison to what we’ve seen in the past, but we’ve got our first Trey Lyles bench celebration of the year (that I noticed):

lyles-celeb

Five. People calling…

People calling Jamal Murray “Steph Murray”: Craig Bolerjack
People calling Alec Burks “Eric Burks”: Quin Snyder
People calling Gordon Hayward “Korver”: Ron Boone

Six. Quin Snyder on George Hill’s return: I think he just gives — he gives our other players confidence because there’s a stability when you have somebody who’s a floor leader. And you know, I think our guys, you know, in the beginning of the year they felt that. And then when that’s gone, you know, we have to be able to be better with him not on the floor.

Snyder on George Hill’s return, some more: You know, [Rudy Gobert] didn’t concentrate in Denver. He let the game, the fouls, the, a lot of things break his concentration. And tonight, I felt like he was more focused on that. He was a beneficiary of some of the things that George was doing. I think George’s presence on the court helped stabilize Rudy.

Snyder on George Hill’s return, some more some more: George can make plays, but it’s his presence that is encouraging to me to, that Rodney [Hood] and Gordon, Rodney and Gordon get a lot, and with a lot comes a lotta responsibility…Those guys have a obligation to make plays for other people and to play defense, and I think George subtlely reminds them of that.

Seven. A public service announcement from Joe Ingles on behalf of all Australians:

DJ/PK: Turkey is an obsession on Thanksgiving in America. Is there a certain food that is identified exclusively with some form of holiday or occasion in Australia?

Ingles: Probably just beer…Not that I drink one. I would have water. But everyone in Australia who is not a professional athlete would love to have a nice cold beer.

DJ/PK: Is it Foster’s?

Ingles: No, for the one millionth time I’ve been asked that in America. We don’t — no.

Eight. And a public service announcement from Rudy Gobert as well:

rudy-tweet

Nine. Dancing Jazz Fan is baaaaack!

Ten. Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Week (UDQM)
** Matt Harpring on Rodney Hood: Ride him while he’s hot right now, for sure. (H/T @bjcseven)
** Quin Snyder: For me personally, it’s difficult for me to react too much to small things.
** Snyder on Joel Bolomboy’s time with the Stars: What you want to do more than anything is just let a guy have an opportunity to go up and down and get his timing.
** Harpring on George Hill trying to get a loose ball from Emmanuel Mudiay: I mean, he’s just on top of him. Doesn’t care, you know, what happens to his body.
** Craig Bolerjack to Harpring on Jamal Murray: Matty, he’s gone 32 minutes.
Harpring: At 19, he can go 32 minutes easily, every night.
** Ron Boone on Joe Johnson: You know what’s coming once he starts backing you in and changing directions and putting his backside into your chest. You know he’s gonna get to a certain spot.
** Gordon Hayward on Kyle Korver: He’s a hot guy that can really score. (H/T @blazerdog38)

Nothing more beautiful than a Kyle Korver catch and splash 3

Shelvin Mack: still a blockhead
by HawksInEurope on Nov 25, 2016 | 8:32 PM

Bazemore and Dwight look horrible
If Dwight won’t rebound or hustle sit him down and play moose. Same with Bazemore. Just run Prince, thabo and Korver.

by seasonticketssince04 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:00 PM

Oh dear god i cant believe it lol. Hardaway Jr is in the doghouse. Its Lou Williams all over again. we finally get a scorer who cant create and he cant last
10 games iin the roation

by Revfromtampa2014 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:07 PM

It’s thanks to how much Bud loves Korver
It’s Prince or Hardaway Jr, not either or. One of them is going to not play for his cherished Korver.

by Scooby Doo 2 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:10 PM


we play a team that is just as big and physical as us and we back down
I feel like I am watching last years Hawks the way we are getting bullied around the floor. We have to play THJ if he isn’t hurt this game. Utah isn’t giving up free looks we need someone who can create some offense.

by seasonticketssince04 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:13 PM

Get Korver and Dwight out of there. Just taking up space tonight
by seasonticketssince04 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:35 PM

Unless Bazemore and Korver don’t play a minute down the stretch, this game is as good as over
Worst starting wings in the NBA folks!
Worst contract of the NBA too!

by Scooby Doo 2 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:35 PM

We just need to cut into their lead before the 4th…
by wmcgee_va on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:40 PM

48 points. thats what happens when u mess with a rotation that was masking average offensive players
by Revfromtampa2014 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:43 PM

Bud is going to think Korver and Bazemore is the answer here
He’s going to be sadly mistaken and the lead is going to balloon to 25.

by Scooby Doo 2 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:49 PM

wish the big boys upstairs would intervene
by Revfromtampa2014 on Nov 25, 2016 | 9:50 PM

This one is on Dwight
He got dominated by Gobert and gave us nothing. He left Milsap by himself. The rest of the team is inconsistent, so I can’t be mad at them. But all Howard has to do is rebound and play hard. This is the third or fourth game he is out here loafing around.

We win this because our C’s dominate against Gobert and Whitey…
Need Gobert in early foul trouble again. Mudiay PnR Gobert…

MUDIAY IS FUCKING GARBAGE.
he very seriously can’t go three games without his horseshit shot

by Mancar on Nov 23, 2016 | 7:22 PM

MUDIAY needs to come off the bench. Our starting pg is hot trash
by Mancar on Nov 23, 2016 | 7:25 PM

Our starters are hot trash
by the_roof on Nov 23, 2016 | 7:26 PM

Our backup PG is also hot trash
by TheLogDog on Nov 23, 2016 | 7:26 PM

Hate they have never given Jazz nickname
back to New Orleans or got something new. Dumbest nickname in sports.
Hell, Jazz is probably outlawed in Utah.

by elcarg4 on Nov 23, 2016 | 7:34 PM

how the hell are we down less than 10 points

Jokic so smooth, poor Whitey or whatever his name is

jameerrrrrrr fuck off

Jameer thinks he’s still important on this team, fuck off
by egaleotti on Nov 23, 2016 | 7:46 PM


guys – we need a new offense and coach. It’s that simple.
by Paul2233 on Nov 23, 2016 | 7:48 PM

We need a new HC bad
by the_roof on Nov 23, 2016 | 7:49 PM

Everyone in Utah is white and blonde
by That’s the Jokic on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:05 PM

Amazing how we are only down 6 at halftime
by egaleotti on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:09 PM

What is Mudiay’s appeal? Seriously? If all he gives us is extremely subpar shooting, gastly layup attempts and jogging the ball up past half court and passing from the perimter
That is such a sad excuse for a starting PG. Mudiay is the new Foye.

by Mancar on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:10 PM

Good God this halftime performance is seriously awful
by InboundingLobPass on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:11 PM

The bench needs to be put in now. Starters are hot garbage.
by the_roof on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:26 PM

THIS LINEUP FUCKING SUCKS. CHANGE IT NOW
by Mancar on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:27 PM

These fucking starters do not know how to move without the ball. Who is coaching these fools.
by the_roof on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:28 PM

why are these fucking starters still in.
They are giving the worst effort.

by Mancar on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:31 PM

we were down 17 then came back and tied
now down 17 again! smh

by InboundingLobPass on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:39 PM

Good time for a coaching change. You can’t continue to leave or start line ups that play with no urgency or passion.
by the_roof on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:40 PM

FUCK OFF JAMEER PLEASE!!
by egaleotti on Nov 23, 2016 | 8:42 PM

Man it was so nice to get a win like this.
Everyone played well.

by AllDayMudiay on Nov 20, 2016 | 9:38 PM

Probably the best game the Nuggets as a team have played this season
It’s great when multiple young/rookie players show up big like they did in this one.

by Rocky Mountain Way on Nov 20, 2016 | 9:41 PM

and always great to beat Utah
by elcarg4 on Nov 20, 2016 | 9:43 PM

Seems like a century since they last beat them.
Utah has always been a pain for the Nuggets no matter the year.

This Week in the Utah Jazz

November 20, 2016

One. Quin Snyder on his decision to not play Rudy Gobert down the stretch against the Memphis Grizzlies: Rudy wasn’t playing good, and we had that lineup in, and those guys brought us back. And Rudy knows that. Rudy was the first one cheering for them. So, no. We just — that group that was playing at the end was playing the best basketball, so we went with them.

Rudy Gobert on his foul trouble against the Grizzlies: There was some weird calls, but you know, I think I gotta be smarter also. I know that out of the five fouls, probably gonna be one or two bad calls, but I gotta avoid those three fouls I make, you know? I can’t allow myself to make stupid fouls and put myself in this position.

Two. Quin Snyder on the bench defense: Until we get healthy, we just got–you know, it doesn’t, it’s not an excuse for our defense, but we’ve gotta — hopefully we’ll continue to be better with fewer guys, and then when we get more depth be able to keep that level higher.

That’s what I’ve been sh–’cause we have been, you know, our bench has been really good defensively at times, but there’s a level of energy that’s unique that they have to have to do that. And it’s not, it’s, you know, it’s not common but it’s doable, and that’s where we gotta be. We gotta have not just extra effort, but extraordinary effort.

Three. Jerry Sloan: Small College Basketball Hall of Famer.

jerry-evansville

This is impressive enough on its own, but it’s merely what Jerry achieved before he ever set foot on an NBA floor. In the same class of honorees were Willis Reed and Earl Monroe. Here’s the greatest story ever told involving these guys:

I’m going to take a stab at how this story would go in today’s NBA:

“We were playing Team X in Arena Y. Team X had Future All-Star XA and Future Hall of Famer XB and Future Crazy-Dressing Analyst XC and those guys. Future Hall of Famer XA got a rebound and threw it out and was gonna beat Role Player YA down the floor. He was hauling it down the floor. He had his head down, and when he looked up, Defensive Stalwart YB was right there, man. XA ran over YB. Charge! XA fell on the floor and hurt his knee. He already had a bad knee. He threw his arms up in the air, looked at the refs with a really whiny expression and yelled, ‘Did you see that? Call a foul!’ while YB and the rest of the players ran back up the floor. Team Y scores easily.

Later in the game, XA got another rebound. He hauled off down the sideline again. This time he saw YB. He didn’t go right, and he didn’t go left. He ran up to YB, jumped into him and released the ball. The whistle blew. And there was XA saying, ‘Your wife tastes like Honeynut Cheerios.’ Y-B replied, ‘Well, I told my mom I was signing with your team and she cried.’* The two stepped up to each other and the rest of the players on the floor crowd around. They put on their most menacing faces, but really are just waiting for the refs to separate them.

And these guys have every kid in American copying their style, because they get paid a lot and have a lot of endorsement deals.”

jerry-2

Four. * Reference @_@ (via CBS Sports):

dwight-howard

Five. George Hill on the role he’s played in Rudy Gobert’s progression: You know, before I got here, he’s the type of player, when you say something to him, he always has an excuse for it. And you know, as we’ve been, you know, talking more and Coach has been on him more, he’s starting to understand just listen first and take everything in and apply it to the game.

And you know, I told him any time you can just listen sometimes, take the constructive criticism and see that, and apply it to what they’re telling you to do — because they’re not telling us something that’s gonna hurt us. They’re trying to help us ’cause you always want to win — and just take that and apply it and do the best you can, and you’re gonna be a better player.

And he’s been doing a great job of that and really applying all the knowledge that the coaches and stuff have been telling him and applying it to his game, and he’s having a great year so far.

Six. Finger talk:

Joe Ingles on how his finger injury last year affected him: Mine was on my left hand, and kind of like George is going through now. It’s, when it’s on your shooting hand or your stronger hand, I think it’s pretty difficult. Obviously, for Gordon [Hayward], it’s different. His is on his opposite hand. He can tape it up and it probably doesn’t affect him as much. But when it’s on your strong hand, it makes a bit of a difference.

George Hill on his finger injury: I gotta wear the brace a couple days longer, and th–after that I can be back there. So you know, eager to get back out there…You don’t really know how much you actually need your thumb until it’s gone.

Questions Gordon Hayward has been asked this week (ones about his shot and whether he can not dunk with two hands not included):
** Was your finger bothering you our there in the third quarter? Is it still bugging you?
** Is it something you feel like you are having to play through and is kind of challenging to play through whatever it is?
** Did you re-aggravate it? Was there a specific place it happened?
** Is the finger still bothering you?
** You’ve been rubbing that finger, massaging it the whole time you were talking to us. You do it during games too, and I think a lot of fans wonder what that means, what you’re feeling, why you do that?
** It hurt when you dunked it with two hands, and at least you have timeout to then [] a little bit from the finger, but are there other moments in the game when you feel…?
** Is it better than it was when you first came back?
** We saw you grabbing your finger a little bit. Is it bothering you?

Seven. Is the team crazy thin because players are eating their backups, or are players having to eat their backups because they’re crazy thin?

locke-tweet

Eight. Quin Snyder after the loss to the Chicago Bulls: We weren’t very good. That’s clear…I don’t see any reason that because we played this way tonight, that we’re necessarily, like, you know, sirens are going off for our offense. You know, our offense is, I don’t know, over the course of the season has been not great, but solid…

[We] lost to a really good team…So, I mean, we could be better. You know, tha–there’s no question about that. And, we’ll try to be better, but I, you know — well, part of the th–part of games like this, and you know, is it’s an 82-game season, and you gotta do everything you can to get better when you don’t play well.

But you know, I don’t look at our group — I, looking, we didn’t play well. I don’t think we have to, you know, examine everything, and you know, start over. You know, I just think we gotta play better, and there’s some things we absolutely have to do better. And, that’s clear, so.

Nine. Joe Ingles on the Jazz’s international locker room: We’ve got seven international players out of 14, 15, whatever it is, and it brings something different. It’s not — obviously, we’ve got two French, two Australian, Brazilian, Canadian. Like, we’ve got guys from all over, so you kinda get to learn different cultures. I think it’s good for the American guys too, and even the coaching staff and the organization, just to learn a bit about different cultures.

Ten. Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Week (UDQM)
** Gordon Hayward on his finger: I got squeezed pretty hard, and you know, it was throbbing the rest of the game.
** Hayward on rubbing his finger: I mean, I’m just kind of making it feel better. I think it’s just, getting a little bit of the swelling out. A little massage helps it feel better.
** Craig Bolerjack: Beautiful look inside, Hood could not finish.

We can’t get a foul call though, so that’s not helping.
