Game 28 of 82: Utah Jazz at Charlotte Hornets (8-20)

December 21, 2014


Game summary: The Jazz broadcast showed a Big Al highlight reel in the final minutes of the game.

Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on the game
I think our start hurt us. You know, we let Al Jefferson catch the ball way too deep, and they, a couple easy buckets early, even, just a little, made us a little more tired. And w–that said, we, you know, we cut it to 10 with eight minutes in the fourth. But we were searching to find some juice all night.
** Snyder on Rudy Gobert’s performance
He had some energy. I think, you know, he seemed like he had some bounce and some freshness, and you know, he came in and really helped us–I won’t say get back in the game, but helped us get a little momentum with, you know, his, the defensive job that he did on Jefferson. He just made it harder on him.

** Gordon Hayward on the game
I think you have to recognize it’s the fourth game in five nights for us, but you know, we’re professionals. We gotta be able to handle that…We’re a young team, so I mean, you’re gonna have nights like this for sure. We’ve had plenty of ’em already, and hopefully we can learn.
** Hayward on Big Al’s performance
I think the key for them is Big Al. And especially when he gets going, I mean, you watched that in Utah for a number of years. He’s tough to play one-on-one, and they did a great job of spacing the other guys, cutting the other guys, so when you do double, they hit cutters. He’s a pretty willing passer, too, out of the post, so you know, I think that’s where it all starts.

** Al Jefferson on Derrick Favors’ development
Oh man. Well, Favors, you know, that’s my guy, man. You know, but I’m a little disappointed in him, though. He went for my ball fake the first two plays of the game. That’s something that very shocked me. But you know, he’s becoming, he be coming into it, you know? When he was a rookie, I knew he was gon be something special. You know, and you could tell. You could tell. You could see it, and he’s just getting more and more comfortable, more and more, you know, he been working. You can tell that he getting more comfortable with his game and understanding the type of player he can be. You know, he always gon have a face-up jumper, and I think he understanding the block now. He always been a great defensive player, rebounding too. So, [he is] just coming into his own, and you know, we gon see a lot of him in years to come.


Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Craig Bolerjack on Enes Kanter miss: Kanter would like to get started. He misfires.
** Boler: If you get hit on something that’s been strained, or sprained, or bruised, it may take a minute or two for it to kind of get the feeling back.
** Ron Boone on Quin Snyder substitution: I saw him get up and grab Alec.

Red denotes most recent game.

Two streaks continue: The Jazz are 0-9 with Johnnie Bryant doing the halftime interview and 0-4 with Boler and Booner on the call.
