game 42 quin

Pre-Game Quotage
** Trey Burke on where the team is
Lately, we’ve been playing really great basketball. You know, we took a couple steps back last game against the Spurs, but that’s a really good team. So I think we’re satisfied with where we’re at right now, but we’re not satisfied with where we wanna be.

Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on the game
You know, we’re not a great offensive team right now. It’s, and when, you know, when some of our best offensive players have off-nights, it’s difficult for us to score. But really, the initial problem for us was at the defensive end. In the first quarter, we got off to a poor start. I didn’t think we had enough toughness, focus on that end of the floor, and we’re gonna have to generate some offense off our defense right now. I think as the game progressed, we did a little more of that.

** Elijah Millsap on what the Jazz need to bust their slump
We’re hanging our hats on the defensive end. We’re doing a great job defensively, but we gotta start finding a flow and, on the offensive end. I think coach’s first thing is defense, so right now we’re just gon try to find a flow as well as continue to bring it [on] defense.
** Elliot Williams on his experience so far
Coming in on my first 10-day, I was coming in right on the road, so I had to pick up really, really quick. And now, I’m trying, I’m starting to get a little comfortable…It’s a great opportunity for me. I’m thankful for it, and the coaching staff has done a good job with, you know, me being, teaching me, being patient with me. So I just felt comfortable today.

Random Stuff, etc.
** Remember Armless Al? Well, the Jazz graphics guy has really stepped up his game! Presenting the Rudy de Milo (H/T @bjcseven):

** So the Rocky Mountain Revue may be on its way back, though it may just be five teams including the Jazz. The other four to five teams would be an international club, a D-League team and two to three NBA teams.
** Part of Brian Zettler’s job description, apparently: making sure Quin Snyder’s lips aren’t chapped.

Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Matt Harpring on LeBron James: He’s realizing how long Gobert is. That’s why he’s smiling, like, “Man, that guy is llloooong.”
** Craig Bolerjack: Marion. And Rudy’s up-ended.
** Harpring: When LeBron’s out, this is Kyrie Irving’s time to do his own thing.
Boler: Boy, he’s banging down one, two, three Jazz players.
** Boler: They called Booker for, I guess, pulling down Kyrie Irving to make room for Hayward.
** Cavs announcer: Kevin Love called for it. Backside. (H/T @mac_jazz)

Thanks to @urzishra for the assist on the W-L record tonight. Not sure why there wasn’t a halftime interview, but FWIW it should’ve been Mike Wells.
