How many wide open 3s has Hood had so far?
by Vincent Torello on Jan 2, 2016 | 8:28 PM

We shoulda drafted Hood
by Vincent Torello on Jan 2, 2016 | 8:30 PM

Same shit different day
by Vincent Torello on Jan 2, 2016 | 9:00 PM

Utah have looked the better team
… but have really let us off the hook here. Looking for a hot start to the second-half

by Rhett P on Jan 2, 2016 | 9:11 PM

I’m just like man…
Even when we’re doing most everything right seems like we find a way to fuck ourselves… #FTdrama

by Vincent Torello on Jan 2, 2016 | 9:53 PM

so many missed free-throws….
by Rhett P on Jan 2, 2016 | 9:57 PM

8-19. Yuck
by Rhett P on Jan 2, 2016 | 9:58 PM

Still think we’ll win this…
but with Gobert AND Favors out this shouldn’t even really be close.

by Rhett P on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:03 PM


Rodney showing why we should’ve drafted him!!!
by axelrowlings on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:09 PM

If Gordon Hayward played for a bigger market…
He’d be hated more than JJ Redick.

by Grizzlin’ on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:15 PM

Oh My God What Is That Call.
by Grizzlin’ on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:26 PM

Terrible call
by Vincent Torello on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:26 PM

Home town call, absolute rubbish!
by Rhett P on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:26 PM

Great play drawn up by Quinn Snyder.
by Grizzlin’ on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:35 PM

I don’t know why..
but he really creeps me out lol

by Rhett P on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:36 PM

Imagine him as your neighborhood butcher.
by Grizzlin’ on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:38 PM


Are you f’ing kidding?! How many bailout fouls they gonna get?
by Rhett P on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:44 PM

Fuck you Hood
You would be wearing a Grizz jersey if Chris Wallace didn’t fail at life

by Vincent Torello on Jan 2, 2016 | 10:47 PM

Ugh, another wack loss.
Nice work on the thread guys. Now to go have nightmares about Quinn Snyder

Is there a worse city in the league for an NBA player to spend new years eve than Salt Lake City?
by squeeky on Dec 31, 2015 | 5:24 PM

Seems to be only Utah broadcast.
by annthefan on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:14 PM

Barf!
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:15 PM

They.are.bad.
by annthefan on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:15 PM

It’s The Scary Coach!
by occassia on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:10 PM

Still not over Withey. This game will be tough to watch.
by RipCityLifer! on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:10 PM

All we got are two great years from Rolo while we have to watch Withey change the NBA landscape from afar
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:11 PM

They have Jeff Withey????? We’re toast!
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:10 PM

UTAH MORE LIKE POO-TAH
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:15 PM

Heyward is the best dorky player ever!
He is just such a dork but damn he can play pretty well

by cavejunctionblazer on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:31 PM


I used to buy Meth off of Ingles when he lived here
by AUS2PDX on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:38 PM

these Utah announcers are easily amused by themselves
by Corwin71 on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:40 PM

They’re awful.
by annthefan on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:41 PM

“GOT IT! No…”
by Showtime14 on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:41 PM

Hahahaha the Jazz announcer said “Burke, heat check GOT IT!” except it was an airball
by KingWes on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:42 PM

These Utah announcers are starting to annoy me.
by BrewDude on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:48 PM

HAPPY NEW YEARS
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:51 PM

MORE LIKE UNHAPPY NEW TEARS
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:51 PM


I don’t get why we dribble all the way down to our half of the court before we turn it over
Just do it under their basket, speed things up.

by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 6:52 PM

This game won’t help there be less drunk drivers on the roads tonight
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:02 PM

Just need a nice 20-2 run to end the 3rd quarter to make this a game again
by Lassiie on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:23 PM

dang son we couldnt hit the ocean if we were standing on the beach
by cavejunctionblazer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:25 PM

We couldn’t hit the ocean if we were IN the ocean.
by pdxthomastran on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:26 PM

I disagree I bet we could unless we were in the middle of a large boat and if we are I think it’s not weird that we couldn’t hit the ocean
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:26 PM

fun vacuum
coming in and sucking up alllllll the fun

by Dan Marang on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:27 PM

You guys don’t get how big boats are now, especially after they deepen the Panama canal!
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:28 PM

tonight we are on that ship and its sinkin lol
iceberg dead ahead!

by cavejunctionblazer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:29 PM

ICEBERG MORE LIKE LICE-TURD WHICH IS HAYWARD’S NICKNAME
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:31 PM


New Year’s resolution:
forget this game ever happened

by Corwin71 on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:30 PM

ABOUT TO BE 20!!!!!!!!!! IT’S A GAME AGAIN!
by Lassiie on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:32 PM

More like Trevor Booger
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:40 PM

Giving Hayward calls like he is LBJ….freaking ridiculous…everytime he drives in the lane he gets gifted a foul call
by Lassiie on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:40 PM

Add Gordon to the list of people I hate for no good reason
by AUS2PDX on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:41 PM

The Jazz announcers are kinda jerks
by conspirator5 on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:42 PM

Trey burke does this to us every time
His career stats against us are well above what he does against everyone else

by DP0 on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:46 PM

Trey Jerke
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:49 PM

Withey looks like jordan out there
by cavejunctionblazer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:49 PM

Utah needs this more than us anyways, we’re just being nice
by Mortimer on Dec 31, 2015 | 7:57 PM

Rough with all these injuries for the Jazz
Know how that feels…

by Spanish_Inquisition on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:10 PM

We were unstoppable in the first 90 seconds
by WordSalad on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:21 PM

Trey Lyles is a perfect example of someone who should have stayed in college.
by SexyLexy3772 on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:33 PM

Trevor Booker making us look feeble underneath
by WordSalad on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:35 PM

This Utah roster
without Favors, Gobert, Exum or Burks is really, really bad.

by JLove3 on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:42 PM

This is resembling a game at the Y.
by Eric in Madison on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:42 PM

Utah bad shooting is making the 2nd unit defense look good.
by SexyLexy3772 on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:45 PM

In 4 minutes, this second unit has given up 8 (pretty open) 3’s. Utah has somehow missed all 8.
by chl on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:45 PM

Utah shooting a whopping 16.7% so far
by Spanish_Inquisition on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:49 PM

And now down to 5 point lead…
by Asleep at the Keyboard on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:49 PM


Listening to the Utah announcer butcher Nemanja Bjelica was truly cringe worthy. So he tried it three times and swung wide on all attempts.
by Asleep at the Keyboard on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:58 PM

That was pretty bad
by archie2227 on Dec 30, 2015 | 7:59 PM

How are we not able to extend this lead?
This Jazz team is absolutely terrible

by Snoekenbijter on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:00 PM

Granted, my stream isn’t very good
but I think my building super is in the game for Utah right now.

by E-6 on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:01 PM

is he Aussie?
he could be

by WordSalad on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:02 PM

Sure, why not?
(Ingles fixed my toilet on his day off.)

by E-6 on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:03 PM

This game
Is this supposed to be professional basketball?

by mefoolonhill on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:02 PM

Booker
Trevor Booker is the kind of offensive rebounder I’ve been wishing for. Let’s trade some deadwood and get us an animal on the glass.

by mefoolonhill on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:04 PM


This is a stinking morass of basketball ineptitude…
by Asleep at the Keyboard on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:07 PM

Being up by just 7 to this team at halftime at home is veering on moral defeat territory.
by WolvesFan03 on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:08 PM

Big Al with a Meniscus injury. Is that code for Charlotte thinks he sucks and doesn’t want to see him play anymore?
by SexyLexy3772 on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:17 PM

Carmelo Anthony believes more has to be done to curb gun violence after teammate Cleanthony Early was shot during a robbery early Wednesday morning.
Umm it’s New York outside a strip club.

by SexyLexy3772 on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:19 PM

Didn’t see anybody bring up the Derrick Williams getting robbed thing on here
$750k in jewelry stolen by some skanky girls he brought home from a strip club

by Spanish_Inquisition on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:35 PM

The Knicks aren’t good at avoiding criminals.
by running with Twolves (and scissors) on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:20 PM


I’m not sure how I’m supposed to see Gordon Heyward
and not think there is any HGH use in the NBA despite the fact there is no testing.

by Catalinawinemixer on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:20 PM

I think the appropriate reaction of seeing Heyward is wondering when he’ll be single again.
by Joel Hernandez on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:21 PM

Pshh. I could never get a Gordon Heyward.
by Catalinawinemixer on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:22 PM

Not with that attitude
by Joel Hernandez on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:25 PM

You might get herpes (callback to joke above)
by running with Twolves (and scissors) on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:22 PM


Should somebody actually get credited for a win from this awful game?
by Joel Hernandez on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:31 PM

This doesn’t feel like a game.
by uncle rico on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:34 PM

Good news
We snapped Trey Burke’s MPE streak at 3.

by WolvesFan03 on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:36 PM

we’re making Jeff Withey look like Shaq, tho
by WordSalad on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:37 PM

isQuinn Snyder the most punchable coach in the nBA?
by zebano on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:47 PM

Not as long as Derrick Fisher is still coaching.
by running with Twolves (and scissors) on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:48 PM

He’s like a Batman’s archenemy
WHACK!
POW!

by antrodax on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:48 PM

I think Haywood and him just talk about hair gel most of the time
by MNIslander on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:49 PM


Haywood seems very excited with the chance to get to 50 points in three first quarters.
That’s the spirit.

by antrodax on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:48 PM

this sustained shooting incompetence by Utah
is impressive in its own way

by WordSalad on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:49 PM

It’s almost like they studied our playbook…
by Asleep at the Keyboard on Dec 30, 2015 | 8:50 PM

Recipe game while we’re up double figures
Ready to open the discussion. This is boooooring

by antrodax on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:01 PM

wait till Jazz hit lofty 35% shooting mark for game
it’ll be a nailbiter then

by WordSalad on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:02 PM

I made french onion soup the other day…
was super simple… camelize onions, add to beef broth with thyme. Ladle into oven safe bowls, top with french bread, Swiss and Gruyere cheese and broil for 3-5 minutes

by zebano on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:02 PM

my only regret was not having quite enough onions in it.
I took the leftovers with some other fridge foods (red onions + ham + more bread) and made another meal out of it.
also Gruyere may be the king of cheese

by zebano on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:05 PM

Colby Jack is the Andre Kiralinko of cheese
by running with Twolves (and scissors) on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:06 PM

hmm more like Bleu
seriously what doesn’t blue cheese work with?

by zebano on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:07 PM


wow were losing control fast
get the starters back in

by zebano on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:03 PM

Most of them are in.
by running with Twolves (and scissors) on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:04 PM

a team with Trey Burke as the major crunch time weapon is
so so so beatable

by WordSalad on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:18 PM

strange game
But the wolves won! and wiggins had some rebounds and assists

by Dutch wolves fan on Dec 30, 2015 | 9:49 PM

Towns was too much for the Jazz JV post rotation

Hope we see another promising game today by the boys.
Doesn’t necessarily have to be a dub, but want to see them compete again. Also, interested to see some D’Antoni-1-practice-session offense. Brace the game, people.

by bubuh57 on Dec 28, 2015 | 8:49 PM

Jazz have like no one healthy
Should be able to win

by tmendinsky10 on Dec 28, 2015 | 8:57 PM

Just want a watchable game for four quarters
by topspindude on Dec 28, 2015 | 8:59 PM

Sauce and Hayward look alike. Maybe because they’re both white?
by okie dokie on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:14 PM

It’s the haircut
by ChipSmoothie on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:23 PM

That’s racist
by okie dokie on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:24 PM

Man I wish we got Hood
by tmendinsky10 on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:16 PM

God that arena is dead silent.
by EastonAssassin63 on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:17 PM


Hayward and Stauskas have the same barber, I know that much.
by braininahat on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:20 PM

Hayward looks like a DieHard villian and the Utah coach looks like Scarecrow from the Batman movies (Bale).
by KramerSixers on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:22 PM

okay who is Jeff Withey?
by topspindude on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:23 PM

Well at this rate for the Broncos I won’t even have to worry about flipping back and forth
by tmendinsky10 on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:28 PM

Only have the Jazz guys. Listening to some Matt Harpring.
by EastonAssassin63 on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:30 PM

Has he been Sixers complementary?
by SwishGawd on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:31 PM

Very fair. He does a good job.
by EastonAssassin63 on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:32 PM

37 1st qtr points by a team who scores like 97ppg
Can we do worse than that?

by Carlo69 on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:40 PM


All their guards fucking push off.
by braininahat on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:43 PM

CHRIS JOHNSON REVENGE GAME
by jbtones on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:51 PM

I don’t get why these Utah guards get to push off on every dribble. Is this really legal in the NBA? That’s fucking horrible basketball.
by braininahat on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:51 PM

That’s why i hate Utah.
They get away with a lot of that crap, at least whenever the Sixers play them.

by Knucklehead75 on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:19 PM

Whitey is killing us
by jbtones on Dec 28, 2015 | 9:59 PM

Sixers seem not able to contain Whithey. Who you ask?
by bubuh57 on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:02 PM

white guy who plays for Utah
by Knucklehead75 on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:22 PM

But Jazz are escaping some cheap push offs. Many in fact.
by bubuh57 on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:05 PM

Its Utah.
Its a mandate from the league. Whitest team gets +5 bad calls every game and as a bonus can push off.

by Knucklehead75 on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:23 PM


Another push off
by braininahat on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:06 PM

They’re pushing off every single time lol. this is comical
by AAKing23 on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:07 PM

Straight arm push off again.
by braininahat on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:10 PM

Anyway, Jazz are really a well coached team. Both defensively and offensively. Kudos to Quin Snyder.
by Carlo69 on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:20 PM

jazz play dirty
by gramercy riffs on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:30 PM

Holmes and Hayward
are keeping us in this game.

by braininahat on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:44 PM

What does Holmes have to do to get a call?
by Kevin Valdez on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:48 PM

Put on a Jazz jersey.
by braininahat on Dec 28, 2015 | 10:49 PM

You guys are right.. Burke pushing off like crazy!
by EastonAssassin63 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:03 PM

I think it’s fishy that all these refs are mormons.
by EastonAssassin63 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:10 PM

These fuckin’ refs.
by dyzz on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:10 PM

I don’t think we’re a good enough team to blame the refs for a loss, but fuck these refs
by keepsoaringEAGLES on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:12 PM


Shame on the refs.
They’re doing that very dirty.

by Carlo69 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:14 PM

Booker is a dirty ass player too.
by EastonAssassin63 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:15 PM

I just shit my pants!
by tmendinsky10 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:19 PM

the fact we are even close with these refs…..terrible dirty refs
by topspindude on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:20 PM

PUSH OFF LIKE A FUCK. how do they not call that
by Kevin Valdez on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:20 PM

It’s Gordon Hayward
by secondroundpick on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:20 PM

Hayward is so overrated
by AAKing23 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:22 PM

Only by the Refs.
SOB getting superstar non-calls all game long.

by Knucklehead75 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:23 PM

Every shot he takes is a push off…
More like JORDAN Hayward. Amirite.

by SwishGawd on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:23 PM


Only 6pts in the 4th
by AAKing23 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:24 PM

Oh wow. UGLY.
by SwishGawd on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:24 PM

amazed its close with these stinkin REFS
by topspindude on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:24 PM

Why does Booker look like Lebron with hair?
by keepsoaringEAGLES on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:25 PM

WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK

by Euphronius on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:32 PM

i’m secretly ok with a close loss after the lakers lost earlier
by Paul Douglas “Doug” Collins on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:37 PM

im okay with losing every single game for the rest of the season if it looks like todays game. that losing by 20 crap is what pisses me off
by PhillahSpark on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:39 PM

good last shot. oh well.
by Euphronius on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:39 PM

Considering the refs fucked us, I’m cool
by AAKing23 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:40 PM

True.
Jazz Superstar Hayward would have fouled out, if he was wearing a Sixers jersey.

by Knucklehead75 on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:43 PM

hayward sucks, stauskas sucks worse. they would excel as a dynamic gay porn duo, but not in the nba. stauskas looks like the pansy version of hayward. same hair cut, but hayward has a way better body
by allplayonthepennywhistle on Dec 28, 2015 | 11:48 PM

ok then

And here’s your weekly Utah Jazz wrapup

December 28, 2015

standingsStill in it. Or, not out yet.

One. Burning question: Will the Rigby family ever recover from the ignominy of Daughter Rigby acting so shockingly scandalously at her father’s place of employ?

rigby-daughter

In case you’re wondering: This is likely the pearl recipient RR talked about in December.

Two. Rudy Gobert is continuing to undergo treatment.

bear-rudy

Three. The Alec Burks dunk:

burks-dunk

Was it a dunk?
** Alec Burks: I thought it was an and-one.
** Quin Snyder: It was two points the other way in transition defense, ’cause we didn’t get back.
** Ron Boone commentary: He had it cocked. He had to uncock it. (H/T @5kl)

It was overlooked, but the dunk also led to the historic moment when the Jazz managed to have eight players on the floor at the same time (Rodney Hood got back on defense).

8 players

Four. Joe Ingles, asked how much of the Jazz’s communication issues against the Clippers were due to guys playing with guys they’re not used to playing with*: No. I mean, it, no matter who you’re out there with, it doesn’t, you talk. If you — playing with anyone, it doesn’t really matter. It’s just something that we obviously need to work on.

It’s a, it’s been a point of ours and we haven’t got the loudest group in the world, and that’s the way it is, but we can get a lot better through that communication.

* Good job Jingles not taking the built-in-excuse-supplied-in-question bait from 1280. (The follow-up “question” to this one was, “Even with the injuries and being down, you still fought hard.”)

Five. Gordon Hayward’s getting quite a reputation among opposing players for his constant head flopping. Last year, it was Chris Paul:

Chris Paul's head flop how-to demonstration

A video posted by @monilogue on

This week, Andrew Bogut:

bogut-hayward

Seven. Trey Lyles bench celebration of the week:

lyles-bench

Eight. Sartorialist of the Week: Rudy Gobert and his bright red pants. Those had to have been custom made, right?

rudys pants

Jazz players weighed in on Gobert’s fashion during a pre-game segment this week.
** Rodney Hood: Worst dressed [on the team]? I say Rudy, man. Rudy’s swag is better than the actual clothes he wear. He makes his clothes, I guess you could say.
** Joe Ingles: [Worst dressed is] Rudy Go-burt. Yup. By far.
** Alec Burks: [Worst dressed is] Rudy Gobert, by far…He just can’t find nothing his size.

This reminds me of the time Andrei Kirilenko and Kyle Korver took Kyrylo Fesenko clothes shopping at a Big and Tall store because the entire team “was not OK” with Fes’ wardrobe. Good times.

Nine. This week’s edition of…

crooked ass

Ten. Get well soon, Alec.

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Clips Nation.

there’s always some random player that looks like MJ against the Clippers
tonight its Raul Neto

by socal-clip on Dec 26, 2015 | 6:19 PM

Hey look Paul Rivers is already in!!!
Fuck off Doc. Play Josh. Oh wait, you hate him? Fine play Cole at least he is funny to watch and semi-decent? Oh not Cole’s time yet? How about Dawson? I mean anyone but fucking Pierce……

by Pineapple 12 on Dec 26, 2015 | 6:20 PM

Never saw Neto make a play like that here in Brazil before
Of course it would be against Clippers…

by Ainnem Agon on Dec 26, 2015 | 6:25 PM

Can we maybe, possibly get Paul Pierce out of the game? When you get crossed over by Joe Ingles for a three, just go to the bench.
by Justin Russo on Dec 26, 2015 | 6:32 PM

That’s just pathetic
WTF is Doc thinking by playing Pierce??? It’s unfathomable…

by wwshep on Dec 26, 2015 | 6:35 PM

Pierce and Crawford

Utah Jazz at Golden State Warriors: Opponent Game Thread Highlights

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Golden State of Mind.

Can we really have four all-stars this season?
If Barnes didn’t miss so many games we could potentially have 5

by iHypeTV on Dec 23, 2015 | 10:10 PM

Whenever I think of a team having MULTIPLE All-Stars
I think of last year’s Hawks and how they singlehandedly Destroyed my viewing pleasure by playing sound defense, sharing the ball, and running set plays for Kyle Korver. I never want to see that again EVEN if it involves Steph, Klay, Dray, and Iguodala on the floor together.

by allen.saenz on Dec 23, 2015 | 10:25 PM

Lol Utah
by ServantOfLuna on Dec 23, 2015 | 10:54 PM

Lucky they are not taking advantage of all these bad turnovers
by DontcallmeIggy on Dec 23, 2015 | 10:54 PM

Can we see some Clark please against Utah
by allen.saenz on Dec 23, 2015 | 10:54 PM

Can we have this Ref on christmas Day please
by mykelala01 on Dec 23, 2015 | 10:56 PM

Nice start after a long break
Defense in particular is looking great

by DontcallmeIggy on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:06 PM

Defense bad too
by Badly Browned on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:07 PM

Prediction:
This lineup will completely suck on offense without fast breaks because of lack of spacing.

by Wolvkil23 on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:08 PM

The bench woes continue
by DontcallmeIggy on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:10 PM

Jesus, bench
For once in your life can you just hold the score level against the other team’s scrubs? Not asking for miracles here.

by Sleepy Freud on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:12 PM

What happened to Alec Burke?
I thought he’d be as good as Klay Thompson.

by allen.saenz on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:13 PM

Bec. he does not have a Steph Curry
playing besides him

They’re in Sync. They’re really just letting the game come to them. I’m talking about the officials of course :smile:

by allen.saenz on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:29 PM

Utah is so boring to watch
by positiveuphemism on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:30 PM

Rush–so slow on the uptake sometimes.
by Qrux on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:56 PM

He frustrates me
Even when he does get a rebound it seems like half the time he gets it immediately stolen from him.

by toomuchfreetime on Dec 23, 2015 | 11:57 PM

Can’t tell if Utah is playing good D or if the dubs are just farting on themselves
by positiveuphemism on Dec 24, 2015 | 12:02 AM

we’ve missed so many chances to extend the lead

this game ended early
by mykelala01 on Dec 24, 2015 | 12:40 AM

Not having too much zebra interference will do that
by DontcallmeIggy on Dec 24, 2015 | 12:42 AM

Not looking forward to Rush defending Lebron on Friday
by Badly Browned on Dec 24, 2015 | 12:42 AM

by JMC15 on Dec 21, 2015 | 7:53 PM

Maybe he’s playing because he’s playing good?

Alright, lets destroy their bench again
And try to hold their starters closer to parity!

by MMotherwell on Dec 21, 2015 | 8:19 PM


What a surprise. Jeff’s horrible lineup has screwed us twice in the same game and he is just as reluctant to change it
by acommoncreeper on Dec 21, 2015 | 8:21 PM

Dude. We just fucking suck. No lineup can save us from a lottery pick.
by PhxSunsFan4Life on Dec 21, 2015 | 8:22 PM

I really think Jeff gets fire tonite
As scapegoat if anything.

by Lino Canaan on Dec 21, 2015 | 8:25 PM

Jeff might not be good at drawing stuff up but his players are not smart enough to run what he’s drawing up regardless.
The problem is, it’s way easier to just fire the coach and blame him instead of blaming your incompetent players. See what houston did with mchale.

by acommoncreeper on Dec 21, 2015 | 8:28 PM

Dead coaches walking
The assistants on the bench look they are all about to face a firing squad.

by brickbrothers.3701 on Dec 21, 2015 | 8:33 PM

We are making Utah look like the Warriors.
Does the league need another designated loser, like the Generals? Maybe we could get paid to do that.

They’ll make everything better

by zarvinny on Dec 21, 2015 | 9:11 PM

The Utah coach won’t sit down, constant verbal input to his guys.. & they have been up the whole game..
I’m having where’s Waldo moments with Horny trying to see if he has left the arena…can’t find him on the bench.

by Knickerbocker82 on Dec 21, 2015 | 9:17 PM

by suns68 on Dec 21, 2015 | 9:23 PM

And here’s your weekly Utah Jazz wrapup

December 21, 2015

One. Lose a few games in a row, and suddenly all the quotes start sounding horribly familiar…

** Quin Snyder after the second loss to the Thunder: I don’t want to hang [the loss] on them, because I want to commend them for the effort, and get better. And hopefully, that’ll, I think in order to do that, we have to, again, you know, circle back and focus on where we are, not just in terms of the season and, you know, 20 or so games in, and, but just where our team is right now.

And so, we just got a lotta guys that are playing hard and playing together, and a lotta guys that can get better, and we’re really young, and we’ve lost some close games, and you know, we’re trying to get better.

** Gordon Hayward on the Jazz going 0-6 from downtown in the fourth quarter against the Pelicans: You know, for whatever reason, like I, we, the shots we got I thought were good shots. We just missed them. Like I said, they were in and out, and you know, we tried to get it into [Derrick Favors], and they were fronting the post, and you know, making it really difficult to get it in there. So, you know, it is what it is.

Two. Trey Lyles bench celebration of the week:

trey-bench

Three. Quin Snyder on the effect of Rudy Gobert’s absence: [Last year, defensively] we were good when Rudy was on the floor and not on the floor. And, but that — Rudy’s got an edge.

You know, it’s kind of, we think about him as length and shot-blocker, but there’s some fire there. And you know, you think you miss his play. Also, I feel like we’ve missed his attitude, and you know, that — won’t say I’ve been disappointed with our guys, but I know there’s more there…

Rudy’s absence has a bit of a domino effect on our team. It just changes a lot of things.

Four. Rudy Gobert, tweeted and deleted:

rudy elijah

Why was this deleted? Did Elijah Millsap not like being portrayed in a polka dot Speedo? Were the diamond earrings too small? Was the hair too Haywardy?

Five. Raul Neto Sr. on seeing his son play for the same team as John Stockton: I love John Stockton. He was my inspiration when I played basketball in Brazil…I love this team. I love John Stockton, and I love watch my son play here.

Six. This was the Netos’ seating arrangement during the interview with Brownie:

netos

As soon as the interview was over, this happened:

mrs-neto-seat-switch

Only one conclusion can be drawn. The word on this has spread among Jazz moms/female relatives.

P.S. Completely adore that Raul Sr. is wearing that purple mountain Stockton jersey.

Seven. Quin Snyder on the advantages and disadvantages of the “triple wing”: Well, I think you, the, one of the biggest things is the defense. You know, because we’re big at one, two and three, it allows us to switch a lot of situations. It mitigates, you know, a [Russell] Westbrook or a, you know, a Tyreke Evans and their ability to use their size to create. So, it gives us a lot on the defensive end.

You know, offensively, none of those guys are point guards. You know, and as a result, you know, there’s, we’re just a different team. You’re asking them to do things that aren’t quite in their wheelhouse, and it’s a line–I think that’s less of a problem late in the game, which is, for the most part of the year, I’ve used that lineup to finish halves and to finish games, and that’s really where you see a lot of the small-small pick and roll, you know, and we’re able to guard that better.

But over the course of the game, i–you know, I’m ju–I’m very conscious right now of whether or not we want to go to it too much. You know, it just, I think it loses the effectiveness if we’re playing that lineup too much. Now, that may, I may, that, I’m, that feeling may change as we use it more. Obviously, it has changed somewhat because I’ve started that lineup a couple times recently that, you know, like anything, the, kind of the variety and the unpredictability has its limits.

And sometimes the, you know, more traditional lineup with Raul or Trey [Burke] also has its benefits as well. Particularly just, you know, the roles that those [triple wing] guys are in, like I said, are, it’s not their primary role, particularly, you know, Rodney [Hood] and Alec [Burks], whereas if you look at Trey and Raul, that’s, you know, clearly, that’s what they are. You know, there’s no mistaking, because of their size.

Eight. Quin Snyder does not like people others messing with his clipboard:

quin-bear-fav

Nine. Quin Snyder, asked if the win against the Nuggets helps team morale: I try to shield them from the, from this [roller coaster motion], ’cause I don’t think it’s what helps a young team grow. And if you think of it that way, the answer to your question is yes, it helps. But I think you have to fight it when it doesn’t, ’cause it’s gonna happen again.

I’d be shocked if we don’t lose four games in a row the rest of the season. I mean, that’d be great [if we didn’t], but if it happens, it’s more to me how you deal with it…It’s true. I mean, you, it’s, we’re young.

Ten. Unintentional Dirty Quote Machine of the Week (UDQM)
Craig Bolerjack on the Spurs’ arena organist: Whosever pumping that organ…(pause)…got some heavy hands.
