Game 14 of 82: Utah Jazz at Dallas Mavericks (1-13)
Jimmer and Angelina were not impressed.
Someone’s gonna end up on Shaqtin’ A Fool again.
** Tyrone Corbin, post-game
The way we fought back in the second half is encouraging.
** Corbin on Marvin Williams
Can’t say enough about how much we appreciate him, you know, having his nose reset yesterday [and] actually playing a few games before having it reset when he broke it, to continue to play for us and give us a chance to have a chance to win games and be getting better™. And it just shows for the young guys, you know, what kind of dedication you have to have if you want to be good in this league.
** Corbin on Gordon Hayward
He was waiting for it to come to him. We need him to be aggressive for us. You know, he didn’t want to press. He thought he took a few bad [shots] the last game, so he was just kind waiting for the game to come to him.
** Trey Burke, post-game
I think we just have to change our mindset in the first half, and just come out the way we–like we’re losing already.
Random Stuff, etc.
** For those that care about this kind of thing (@bjcseven), here’s Trey Burke in Louis Vuitton:
** Memo Okur is such a good dude. Love this tweet that he sent to Hayward…and this tweet is also an example of unintentional comedy at its finest due to the tweet that he unintentionally replied to.
** John Lucas III (@luke1luk) has taken over for Mo Williams in taking pictures of sleeping teammates. His latest victim is Rudy Gobert, who he describes thusly: “one ugly dude when he sleep LMAO.” The best part? Rudy is hugging his Minnie Mouse doll.
** Speaking of Lucas, it was his birthday on Thursday. He posted on Instagram a present that he got from one of the guys:
JLIII didn’t say who the wonderful gift-giver was, but let’s rewind to a tweet we saw a month ago (notice the page was still in the magazine at the time):
Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Steve Brown: The Jazz expected some movement from Favors there.
** Brown: Trey Burke will pull it out. (H/T @dianaallen)
** Ron Boone: How about Dirk just riding Burks away from the play?
** Brown: Gordon did get in there, but it didn’t come early.
** Brown on Kanter: I’m not sure what he could’ve done, though. He got it up, and did the best he could.
** Trey Burke, post-game: We allowed them to, you know, do things too easy tonight. You know, their hands were on us, and our hands weren’t on them.
To close: Hope the boys had a fun time (H/T @UtahJazzPodcast).
