Yay another loss!!
Can’t wait to see how we give up!

by ATLNets on Jan 22, 2016 | 7:07 PM

Well I can finally watch games again
But I’m not sure I want to…

by ThatCTNetsFan on Jan 22, 2016 | 7:36 PM

Great start off to this game
Hope they can remotely keep it up.

by Kenzo Tenma on Jan 22, 2016 | 7:48 PM

10-0 run for the Jazz. Great.
by LopezTonight on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:00 PM

Is it just me or does the jazz coach look like a movie villain? He just needs a scar across his eye.
by GedionZelalem on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:02 PM

He looks like a villain in a movie where the hero is a dog.
by JimNJuice on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:03 PM

This really cracked me up.

HAHAHA, YES
by GedionZelalem on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:04 PM


Jeff Withey is gonna be the scrub of the game
He’ll post a low double double

by NetsFanFromPuertoRico on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:03 PM

When is coach Thibs hire date?
by Jerseyjon on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:19 PM

The lack of talent on this team is mind boggling
by manny1992 on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:23 PM

this game is miserable
by soul driver on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:24 PM

Snyder Looks freaky
by the Cool none on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:25 PM

The whole team has given up.
You can see it in their body language. This is a disaster of epic proportions. We need a GM as soon as possible before the trade deadline to put everyone on the block to gauge if there are any desperate playoff teams out there that are willing to give us good young pieces for Brook, Thad or Joe. Perhaps there’s a team out there that feels that one of those vets could put them over the top and would be willing to trade a couple of young prospects.

by TheHurricane on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:11 PM

It’s such a joke these former-players get NBA gigs. Just so much cluelessness. Billy King really knew how to find like-minded individuals.
I think Bogs has been really bad, but he should be getting minutes over Ellington. Nope. Ellington is one of the minutes leaders.

by Rainy on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:44 PM

I wanted to give Brown a chance, but we need to hire a real coach like now
He’s letting the guys do whatever the hell they want… it is not okay that Ellington is playing the most minutes and taking the most shots, that is atrocious.

by JKim18 on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:46 PM


No Derrick Favors or Alec Burks, the Jazz have Neto at starting point
And we still look about a hundred times worse than they do. How many teams have been more pathetic than this in the last decade?

by JimNJuice on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:40 PM

This coach has to start yelling at this pathetic effort.
by JustinNJ on Jan 22, 2016 | 8:59 PM

This team is absolutely effing putrid.
What a sad display.

by GedionZelalem on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:00 PM

Hayward is so good
by manny1992 on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:02 PM

To be fair, we are making Neto look like an All Star
by BroLo Tomassi on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:03 PM

We are getting clowned by the freaking Utah Jazz
Absolutely pathetic.

by BroLo Tomassi on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:03 PM

I thought New York shipped their garbage to jersey
Guess it was the other way around….

by Jerseyjon on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:06 PM

It has gotten so bad that we really are pinning our hopes on 2 rookies:
One who can’t shoot and one who has never played an NBA game and is coming off a major injury.
So sad.

by BroLo Tomassi on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:09 PM


These fans are so weak!!! BOOOOOOOOO THIS FRIGIN TEAM!!!
by JustinNJ on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:13 PM

And people think Free Agents are coming here.
by GNYR on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:14 PM

This team and organization is straight trash
by Alec5 on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:19 PM

I may not be an NBA head coach…
But I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express one time, therefore I believe I’m qualified enough to be an NBA coach and am officially throwing my hat into the ring. I expect to hear back from the team any day now because I’m pretty sure I could do a better job coaching this team.

by Do0msday on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:27 PM

remember when management said this team would be better?
LOLOL

by bronxbombers2 on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:27 PM

Remember when this team actually had management?
LOLOL

by Do0msday on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:27 PM

Worst game of the season …
Why I watched the “whole thing” I’ll never know. Sadist?

by Lupo Pazzo on Jan 22, 2016 | 9:49 PM

We have just witnessed
Wayne Ellington’s Brooklyn Nets.

I find him considerably unlikeable. For his haircut alone

by anthony1968 on Jan 20, 2016 | 7:53 PM

Especially the hair cut.
by TheTrailBlazer on Jan 20, 2016 | 7:54 PM


Are they even trying to play defense?
by Rubbercons on Jan 20, 2016 | 7:51 PM

Ok jazz I’m on to your strategy
1) play boooring basketsports

3). Bore us all to an ugly uneventful win led by neto

On the plus side, it’s only midway through the second
by Jackaroe on Jan 20, 2016 | 8:17 PM


Neto is like delly west
Sooo many alley oops

by felinequickness on Jan 20, 2016 | 8:21 PM

Porzingis’ dunk made coach snider angry. Made him call a timeout. Made him murder 15 people

Hood is good.. or just lucky.
by Rubbercons on Jan 20, 2016 | 9:16 PM

Nah he’s a good player. And I hate Dukies but he plays within himself.
by TheTrailBlazer on Jan 20, 2016 | 9:17 PM

Rodney Hood is the official scrub of the night, right?
by ColonialCrush13 on Jan 20, 2016 | 9:16 PM

He basically stopped the last possession to complain about Melo’s defense

by The Ghost of Kristaps Past on Jan 20, 2016 | 9:40 PM

He’s a huge whiner
by Glen Sather’s Cigar Case on Jan 20, 2016 | 9:41 PM

Get to Know: Trey Burke

January 20, 2016
tags: ,

From David Locke’s “Get to Know” series; recorded in October

burke

Family and birth order: Older brother (played high school football), older sister (played basketball at a young age until she got hit in the face), and younger sister (will play basketball at Ohio University next year).

Older sister is 24. Older brother is 23. Younger sister is 17. Trey and his sisters have the same mom while his brother has a different mom. When his brother was with his mom, Trey was outnumbered by his sisters. When his brother was with them, Trey would get along with his sisters better because he’d be fighting with his brother.

Single greatest shot of your career: Still the Kansas shot. In the NBA, the shot against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden

What was the best game you’ve ever played? Against the Pistons in Detroit his rookie year because of the fan support and media attention over the Pistons passing him over in the draft

Hardest thing you’ve ever had to overcome: Kept getting in trouble in the dorm his freshman year at Michigan (before ever having played a game) and having to do punishment runs, but Coach John Beilein kept giving him chances until one time he got fed up and threatened to send Trey home.

Beilein said Trey would get one more chance and then kept him isolated from the rest of the team for two weeks. Did a lot of thinking and straightened up being away from the team. Has had a few bumps in the road since then, including in the NBA, but has been able to recover and learn from mistakes. Knows right from wrong now.

How is he a bum… He played a great half
by BuzzingAllDay on Jan 18, 2016 | 3:03 PM

did you not see that TO right before halftime? It nearly cost us the half.

by jovox on Jan 18, 2016 | 3:04 PM

Really could cost us the game
by JDeLong42 on Jan 18, 2016 | 3:08 PM

We’ve only played a half bruh

Gordon Hayward really needs to rethink that undercut
by JDeLong42 on Jan 18, 2016 | 3:30 PM

Thank you, Snyder, for calling a TO so we can get this bad lineup out.

And here’s your weekly Utah Jazz wrapup

January 18, 2016

standings 117Hanging in there.

One. Dennis Lindsey on what makes a comfortable cowboy boot: There is some contour. And then, the way the leather is put together.

More Lindsey on cowboy boots: Quin [Snyder] was making fun of them, and he got a Christmas present…If he doesn’t wear them, you know, I’m gonna put these boots where…

Two. Dennis Lindsey on what fans on the verge of engaging casual fan mode need to know right now: They need to know that Rudy [Gobert]’s back, and he gives us an edge…There’s a certain presence he has, and a command that he has, especially of our defense, that is really important to us, and gives Gordon [Hayward] hope.

Three. Gordon Hayward after the loss to the Sacramento Kings: You know, for everything that, how we performed tonight, to be tied with, you know, what was it, last whatever it was, last second play, you know, I couldn’t have asked for more.

Gave ourselves a chance, and you know, they hit a tough shot, and unfortunately, we end up losing this game. But there’s a lot to be learned from this game, and we just gotta start better.

Four. Homage.

lbj-km

Five. Joe Ingles on Ben Simmons: He’s pretty good, apparently…He’s more of, kind of like Dante [Exum]’s age group growing up, so him and Dante kind of grew up together. But he came to one of our national Australian camps a couple years ago, and just missed out on the team, I think. And yeah, he obviously has super talent.

I still think he’s got a lot to work on. But he’s super talented, and if he can keep playing the way he’s playing, and then get over, into this system, if it’s this ye–if it’s next season or the year after, whatever it is, he’ll be, I think he’ll be a great player.

Six. Joe Ingles got pumped for information on Jeff Withey’s girlfriend during his weekly interview on 1280. The conversation went like this:

DJ/PK: Sooo, Jeff Withey, your teammate. Uh, s–i–y–Miss Kennedy Summers. @misskennedys. Have you met Kennedy?

JI: I have. You guys are clowns.

DJ/PK: (giggling)

JI: I have. She’s, uh, she’s a very nice girl.

DJ/PK: I bet. …

JI: I mean, they’re, uh, they’re a very happl–happy couple. I’m happy for Jeff that he’s found a nice girl, and, um, like Ben Simmons, good luck to them. I hope it all works out.

DJ/PK: (giggling) Like Ben Simmons. (more hysterical giggling) …

JI: I mean, I wish them, I wish them all, I wish them the best of luck. I, she’s, uh, he’s a good guy. She’s a nice girl. I’ve met her a couple times…I hope he doesn’t listen to this.

Seven. Dennis Lindsey on Rudy Gobert in the Jazz system: We got this big gift from France…We’re still trying to figure out exactly where Rudy fits, especially offensively. I think the league is, with Rudy, I saw it last night.

They’re allowing people in his path, and, more, and they’re bumping Rudy more, so there’s going to have to be an adjustment to that. We’re hopeful that some of those freedom-of-movement initiatives, those calls will be made.

But he’s not running as free to the rim as he did last year. And so, consequently Rudy’s gotta get stronger, and we gotta give him some different paths while we make our points to the officials in the league themselves.

Quin Snyder on Rudy Gobert in the Jazz system: Our players are getting used to playing with him. I mean, he’s a unique player, and you have to play to his strengths and if you, once they get more used to him, you know, the ball — you can throw the ball a little higher when you lob it, you know, which means it doesn’t get tipped as easily. And you shouldn’t bounce-pass it, ’cause he’s long. You may be hitting his knee where you’re hitting someone else’s hands.

And all those little nuances — you know, the guy drops, don’t foul. You know, show your hands and don’t foul ’cause he’s coming over. If you don’t foul, he gets a block. If you foul, they get two free throws.

So, those are all the type of things that I think, we gotta get used to Rudy, and Rudy’s gotta, you know, continue to get used to, just the tempo of the game and playing.

Eight. Karl Malone, keeper:

keeper

Nine. People calling Igor Kokoskov “the foreigner with the crazy last name”: Britton Johnson

Ten. Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Week (UDQM)
** Quin Snyder on the loss to the Kings: We did some things to ourself early in the game that contributed to that, and that made it hard.
** Joe Ingles on the loss to the Kings: We started slow, and yeah, made it hard for ourselves.
** Dennis Lindsey, asked what size cowboy boot he wears: I’m a 12. I’m a little bigger than Spence.
** Lindsey to Spencer Checketts as Checketts tries on Lindsey’s cowboy boots: They’re gonna swallow you up, small guy.
** Gordon Monson on cowboy boots: I want to get myself a pair.
** Lindsey on group think: It’s not line up behind the Millers. It’s not line up behind Dennis, line up behind Quin.
** Lindsey on Trey Lyles, #UDQMHOF nominee: He’s a 6-10, 20-year-old without a lot of holes. Now, we just gotta help him improve his body.
** Lindsey on player development: Trey Lyles would probably be in Dante’s bucket, where you’re just dealing with 20-year-olds that are literally growing by the day. Trey’s growing by the day. So, we have a little bit of variety there on a individual level.
** Rudy Gobert, asked about defending DeMarcus Cousins(‘ size): I mean, it’s not about how big it is.

And here’s your weekly Utah Jazz wrapup

January 12, 2016

standings

One. Rodney Hood, asked about the end-of-game Jeff Withey no-call against Houston: I think all 10 players stopped on the court. You know, their players, you know, everybody was — I think the fans paused; everybody paused. You know, but, you know, calls like that, don’t define a game. It was a gam–it was plays within the game that we could’ve did to come out on top.

Gordon Hayward, asked about the end-of-game Jeff Withey no-call against Houston: It is what it is. Nothing you can do about it now. You know, we didn’t lose it at that play. We lost it early in the fourth quarter.

Quin Snyder, asked about the end-of-game Jeff Withey no-call against Houston: Whatever they called, they called. I don’t think one call was the game. I don’t think one missed jumper was the game. I don’t think one free throw was the game. You know, it’s just, it’s easy to look for those things. I do it too. We’ll use them to try to get better. Those are situations we want to work on.

But in the end, you know, it’s not one thing. So I mean, I just, I don’t think it helps us get better to fixate on anything. And this group right now — I mean, those are the Houston Rockets. They just went to the Western Conference Finals. Dwight Howard’s an all-star.

You know, Jeff Withey was inactive earlier in the year. Jeff Withey plays his tail off. I mean, that’s where my focus is. You know, Rodney Hood just had a baby yesterday. You know, he’s going against James Harden. You know, the guy’s arguably the MVP last year.

Like, I’ve been so proud of this team, the way they fight. So, if we make a mistake here and there, or struggle scoring for a stretch, you know, I’m not gonna go there. You know, I’m not gonna go there.

We beat Memphis last game. You know, I mean, we may not win for two weeks, but if we get better, I’m happy. And we just use this thing to get better. As tough as it is, we can’t wallow in it. Just gotta learn from it and get better.

Two. Ron Artest/Metta World Peace quietly got to second base with Gordon Hayward before the Jazz left L.A.

2nd-base

Three. Rodney Hood on the birth of his son: I went to sleep around 12. About 2 o’clock, you know, Richa, my fiancee, just panicking. You know, I thought she was, you know, just overexaggerating, but you know, I looked at the — she, her water had broke.

And you know, went to the hospital. You know, I was scared. You know, I never been so scared, ’cause you know, we weren’t expecting him so soon. But I went to the hospital, was in the hospital. He was born around nine that day, on Jan. 3. And you know, he’s here now. He’s healthy…[He was] about six weeks early. …

I actually saw the [delivery], so you know, it’s a bit, you know, nasty, a bit, you know, exciting. You know, just amazing feeling, you know, getting a chance to see that. … [His name] was just always going to be Rodney Jr. I wanted my first boy to be Rodney Jr.

Hood, asked who’s the best at changing diapers between Derrick Favors, Trey Burke and Gordon Hayward: I don’t think neither of those guys change diapers….I’ll say D-Fav, ’cause he has two. I’m sure he has to change one of them.

Four. Jeff Withey has failed as a boyfriend:

Five. Dennis Lindsey on what he learned about Rudy Gobert when he was injured: He was very motivated [to get back], and he and I had a couple good moments, you know, just back in the locker room where, you know, he gets fired up at our group when they need to do something with more force, usually on the defensive end.

And he and [Derrick] Fav[ors] have been back in the back again with me, and you know, pumped up when, you know, an–when, during periods like the Memphis game where you could really feel our guys coming together and fighting. …

You not only miss Rudy and Derrick’s physical attributes, but you miss their edge. And you know, [Gobert’s] competitive, and he provides a certain level of defensive backbone and edginess where, you know, he wants to do well. He has plans for himself and us.

Six. Rudy Gobert, asked why there was no salute on his first dunk in his first game back (at Houston): Salute for the, for home.

Seven. Quin Snyder on Christapher Johnson: Any time you have a guy that’s giving of himself that freely and that, you know, with that much enthusiasm, it, you know, you can’t help but be motivated by that and moved by that. And that’s how he plays.

I mean, he’s just, like, the kind of guy you want to be around and the kind of guy you want to play with, ’cause he’s just all about the group. And he’s all about his teammates, and invariably that ends up having a greater impact on the game than anything that you see in a box score.

Eight. Dante Exum getting his gummy bears:

Nine. The Jazz no longer have a Millsap:

elijah waived

Dennis Lindsey on Elijah Millsap: We haven’t closed the book on Elijah Millsap. We just have quite a few things going on that we just couldn’t predict, with Dante [Exum] and Alec [Burks] and, on the perimeter, and the team is forming a certain way. And so, as cold as it sounds, the optionality of our roster, especially given that we have cap room to work with, becomes very high.

And so, you know, again, we recognize all of his efforts, and, in particular his defense that can be quite unique at times. And we’re gonna continue to watch him, and really all the prospects, to see what’s the right fit, you know, on the short term for the Utah Jazz.

Ten. Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Week (UDQM)
** Craig Bolerjack on Gordon Hayward’s new muscles: Around the year, you know, it’s tough to keep that muscle on because you’re wearing it out every night.
** Dennis Lindsey on Quin Snyder’s preparation: He wants it so bad…and you know, God bless his soul, he’s, you know, up all hours, you know, trying to find every particular advantage. I mean, when I say he’s working right up to the tip before the game, you know, he’s, he really, you know, he’s quite dynamic in his work.

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Silver Screen and Roll.

Can we somehow steal Gordon Hayward?
Or Gobert

Jazz are surprisingly decent in the West.
by htennis on Jan 10, 2016 | 6:40 PM

It’s not too late… we can still pretend we never started watching this game.
by deadmuse on Jan 10, 2016 | 6:46 PM

We lost the fucking tip.
It was Roy vs Hayward. SERIOUSLY WTF ARE YOU ALL DOING YOU POEWGEWGGIGPn ea;rmgare;h

by LadyAlannya on Jan 10, 2016 | 6:47 PM

Hahaha 1/12 …8% FG
by deadmuse on Jan 10, 2016 | 6:48 PM

Okay ya know what…put in the most fucked up lineup you can think of Byron, because it can’t be worse.
LadyAlannya on Jan 10, 2016 | 6:50 PM

This is a good strategy by BS. Blindside the opposition with our incompetence.
htennis on Jan 10, 2016 | 6:58 PM


Utah is looking like shit tonight.
VoR on Jan 10, 2016 | 6:58 PM

so Jazz decided to suck tonight?
Shehzeb Imam on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:02 PM

Hey the Jazz aren’t good.
Thanks Jazz.

LadyAlannya on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:02 PM

Jazz on pace to win 60-56.
LakerAce on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:05 PM

Man this, is an ugly game.
VoR on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:05 PM

So like…if the Jazz don’t go up by 20 points by the half, we win right?
LadyAlannya on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:08 PM

If the Jazz don’t go up by 20 at the half they should be disbanded.
deadmuse on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:09 PM

How can Huertas be this bad?
VoR on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:11 PM

He gets worse the more of Byron’s playbook he masters.
deadmuse on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:12 PM


If this is our new tank strategy against other bad teams I like it. It’s very effective.
by sumo390 on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:28 PM

maybe just maybe guys since you aren’t real basketball coaches you don’t understand
That Coach Scott just wants to make it easier for other NBA coaches. Adjustments during games are so hard, why would you want to do that to an opposing coach.

by OC guy on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:30 PM

I think someone should take center court right now…
And give the crowd the option of continuing the game, or everybody going to see a movie.

by KidPsych on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:40 PM

Hayward
looking like Clarkson’s own personal Mutumbo

by Capt’n Shugg on Jan 10, 2016 | 7:59 PM

Game summary – Lakers suck. Jazz suck a little less.
by VoR on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:08 PM

All Time Laker Low Is 70 Points
We’ll have to pick it up in the 4th to avoid that indignity.
This team is breaking records. Just all the wrong ones.

by Uncle Jam’s Army on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:10 PM

Why? We still have to put up with Byron.
by LadyAlannya on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:11 PM

I would love the jazz’s
Former Coach As These Guys Coach. He was tough. Didn’t take crap. And he truly coached defense.

by The Lakers’ Future on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:15 PM

Couldn’t we have signed this Raul Neto guy instead of Huertas?
by htennis on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:21 PM


This has been a masterful tank.
Utah’s giving us nothing here.

by KidPsych on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:25 PM

Our Response?
Lowest score total ever. Ingenious.

by Uncle Jam’s Army on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:28 PM

Gordon Hayward with the cheat code.
by jepl on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:40 PM

Time Out??!!!
Is there a 10-pont shot I don’t know about?

by Uncle Jam’s Army on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:41 PM

he didn’t use some in the last close game and is making up for that.
by VoR on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:42 PM

Byron probably thinks there’s another quarter left.
by KidPsych on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:43 PM


Is my screen broken or is this a ten point game with 30 seconds left?
by VoR on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:47 PM

Quinn didn’t look happy. Of course, he never looks happy.
by VoR on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:49 PM

No Coach’s Handshake
by Uncle Jam’s Army on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:50 PM

Snyder probably thinks whatever disease Byron has is catching.
by LadyAlannya on Jan 10, 2016 | 8:50 PM

Can we swap coaches?
