What have you learned about the team in the first four preseason games?
Well, I think we’ve learned that we had a very good outing in Hawaii, playing the Lakers, some tough games. I think it was very good for the team. I think they were up for it, and excited.
I think they’ve realized a little bit more, still being young and having a number of young players with our, still a young, younger core, that it is a, it’s a challenge to be traveling as much as you do, when all of a sudden you’re spending a lot of time in Hawaii, and then flying to Phoenix, and turning around and playing almost n–it’s not a back-to-back game, but with a lot of travel time involved in it.
And we, that was a challenge, and then you’re still on the road, and then you’re traveling next t–back home. And we were not mentally as prepared as we needed to be, and mentally as tough, and I think a young team realizes that, and hopefully it, that’s why we have a preseason, for it to have them have these experiences and learn, hopefully learn from it, and become stronger and tougher from it.
Who’s going to be starting at point guard?
Well, that’s still a work in progress. Right now, it’s still, I, it’s too early in the preseason for that.
We know that we have some ingredients that we really believe in, that, as we get a little later into the preseason, as we get, have some more playing time and practice time, Gordon [Hayward] didn’t have the best game in the second half of that game the other night. Gordon knows what he needs to do. He’s going to be just fine. That’s going to improve on.
We had some other players that, you know, Rodney Hood has been a little bit up and down. Rodney’s going to be just fine. As they get more seasoned,* as we get into the season, those things are gonna sharpen. They’re gonna improve, and it’s gonna make us a better team.
So, I think we’ll continue to see better scoring from our guard position, particularly our 2-guards. And I think we’ll see some improvement as well with things that are happening with our big men. Our shots were not falling the other night, and you can work through that, and you’re gonna play through that.
We’ve gotta also come with a better intensity. I thought at the end of the game, Quin Snyder said it very well to our players. And he says, “We had a younger team come in here” — ’cause they’r–Portland was in, to a certain degree, in a rebuilding mode because of some of the players have left their organization — “They came with more that hunger and with more that intensity.”
That’s where we’ve been, and that’s where we were last year. We didn’t have that intensity. We need to get that back, and we need to, so, let’s see how we respond this next game when we play Portland up there. And I, they’re working hard. I expect to see a much better outing.
* Players are ingredients that get seasoned. Lol.
** Burning question: Did Randy Rigby intentionally or unintentionally completely digress 15 seconds into his answer?
Tom Thibodeau has been making the rounds of NBA training camps. Talk about that dynamic of having him here.
Well, it’s always, you know, it’s a real compliment, I think, to Quin and our coaching staff.
But I think Tom has, he is, number one, a great coach. He loves the game, and I know, I’m sure it’s been eating him up to not be, at this time of year, with his own team or with a team. And so, he’s actually visited a number of locations, and a number of teams, and I think he’s a real student of the game of basketball.
So, he loves being around it. He loves watching and learning and seeing what coach–other coaches are incorporating.
And being — there’s a real respect and fraternity that goes on in the coaching area. And I think it’s an opportunity for him to observe some things, and in, hopefully sharpen his skills; at the same time, share some of the knowledge that he’s had with other coaches that he has respect for, and i–and share his ideas and thoughts, and it makes everyone better.
And I’m very impressed with that kind of mentality. Dennis [Lindsey] has that as it relates to the basketball side. A very open, transparent, not-being-afraid-to, you know, constantly-look-at, and learn, and sharing that information, particularly with those that he’s interacted with.
But we see that also with Quin, and that kind of sharing, and interaction, with other respected coaches that he has.
Then it comes down to really, for all of us, not on–it’s improving our skills and our knowledge that we can apply to help the athletes be as good as they can be. Then it comes down to putting it on the athletes, of them having the hunger, the desire, and the work ethic, then, to apply the things that they’re being taught, and the things that they’re learning.
Does the team have a timeline for the playoffs, or is it one step at a time?
No, our team has a goal of really, of wanting to make that next step…and that next improvement is really making the playoffs.
And — now. We’re smart enough to also realize that the playoffs don’t just all of a sudden show up.
It comes by 82 games, and paying the price each game, to be able to take each game one game at a time, to win it, so that you earn that right, to be able to be in the playoffs.
So, [the players] are very much focused in saying, “We want to improve and show that we are a team, that can compete and that is a legitimate team, that is a playoff-caliber team, and get where we wanna go.”
So, we sti–and we know, and the coaches keep reiterating to our players, we still got a long ways to go, guys, and things to prove to ourselves, and to get in–and to make ourselves better, to earn the right to be in the playoffs.
On the maturing of Alec Burks
I’ve seen a real maturing of Alec Burks, also, as an individual. He is much more open and friendly, and has matured.
He, every time I see him, he was almost bashful as a younger player. He now comes up and looks you in the eye and shakes your hand, and you have that smile of his that really warms your heart. (1280)

Odds on Booker taking a swing at Meyers?
by Corwin71 on Oct 12, 2015 | 12:38 PM
the jazz are gonna come back to earth this year. They don’t have a starting PG in the conference for starting PGs. Their defense is top notch, but man they don’t have a lot of weapons on offense.
Hayward, Burke, Burks and Favors are their top 4 scorers this year. If they got a decent pickup in FA I would understand the PO hopes, but I just don’t see them winning 48 games to make the playoffs.
by Reus on Oct 12, 2015 | 4:35 PM
Yeah what a dud Trey Burke has been

Jazz were already improving fast last year. If Burks comes in and does work they’re going to be a playoff sleeper this year for sure

sleeper? Utah is easily making the playoffs this year
by KingWes on Oct 12, 2015 | 8:20 PM

Oh good, Joe Ingles is in the game…he’ll put away this game for the Jazz.

When Aminu makes that shot its a circus shot but if Hayward makes it its “great concentration”

lol When Hayward slams Crabbe to the ground he’s going for the ball.
But when CJ does it it’s “malicious”

Two. Who came up with the nickname “Wolfie” for Raul Neto?
Three. Trey Lyles’ rookie pink purse:
Four. Raul Neto on nerves before his first game, UDQM: It was a little bit hard in the beginning, but after, like, two or three minutes, everything was great.
Five. Trey Burke on his defensive effort in the first game: I could’ve picked it up even more tonight. You know, I really wasn’t satisfied with my defensive effort tonight. I could bring more to the table, is what I’m trying to say, defensively. You know, like I said, it’s first game. You know, Imma watch film on it on how I played defensively, more than anything, and just go from there.
** I’ve gotten a request for the added feature of a “you know” counter for Burke — though Quin Snyder, Alec Burks and at times Dennis Lindsey are pretty prolific too — to “[make] this statistic more conveniently accessible.” This one’s for you, Bob. “You know” count for this quote: 3.
Six. Wolfie and the Pornstache. Bad band name winner?
Seven. Tibor Pleiss on the Jazz system: I think for me, it’s difficult more the names. You know, they have different names I never get before, and that’s something what I have to remember…For example, in Europe, it’s, like, we call “hand-off.” Here, it’s “DHL.” Something really difficult. It’s OK, I think.
Eight. Raul Neto, winning fans over with something other than his face:
Is there any usefulness to Trevor Booker slapping Roy Hibbert upside the head, in terms of the example he was setting for the rest of the team?
“Usefulness.” Haha. I’m not sure I would necessarily describe it that way…
Look, a big part of this league is being able to compete at the very highest level, but yet still be able to handle adrenaline, testosterone, the crowd, the competition that doesn’t allow you to move where you want to move — all those things are factors inside of emotional control.
And so, to be competitively great but be emotionally controlled at all times is a tough balance, and it’s a lesson that our team has now learned, the importance of that balance.
There have been times in Alec Burks’ career where he wasn’t guarding all that intensely and he was trying to play hero ball. He seems reenergized and has looked good in the preseason. How much do his injury and Quin Snyder have to do with that?
Look, Alec, we forget he’s 24, and I think you can start there. He, when he came into the league, not only was he a sophomore coming out of college, but he was a sophomore that was a year younger than his classification.
So, I think if you put that into context — and certainly, Alex,* when he was a young player, was more apt to be engaged and focused with the ball in his hands, or defending the ball. Some of the away-from-the-ball action, he just didn’t have as much experience with. And you know, experience with certain things brings a certain value.
I think Quin’s been able to express that, and frankly, Alec has responded. And I do think being away from the game [when he was injured], being with the coaches, sitting with the coaches during practice, behind the bench, it allows you to have a perspective that you wouldn’t have otherwise, ’cause you’re so caught up into the competition and your minutes and your shots.
It gave Alec a different view, and I would add this as a serious layer of difference that I think we’ll move forward is, is while we managed his pain around his shoulder very effectively and it allowed him to play as long as possible, he, there were still certain positions that he was hitting that caused him pain, and it’s just natural for an athlete to avoid compromising positions that physically hurt you. So I think he’ll now have his head and his full athletic capabilities because his body feels better.
* People calling Alec Burks “Alex”: Dennis Lindsey
What are you learning about Raul Neto and Trey Lyles?
Yeah, quite a bit. I–th–I appreciate their early integration into the team, much, from much different perspectives. With Raul, he’s one that has been around a professional environment. He’s someone that, the nuances of the team, of his teammates, of what coaches want, he picks those things up very well…
With Trey, he’s quiet in nature and he’s somebody that is quietly absorbing his responsibilities. I think the good news with him, as the coaches have given us management feedback, is he picks up things very quickly, instinctually. The dribble-pass shot selection part of the game, he gets that. That’s easy for him.
That’s not the case with many 6-10 big men, and he has a quiet sense of humor. He, you can tell, his mom and dad, he comes from a really solid family background.* He’s just a real stable, emotionally stable young man, and I think we’ve already witnessed the early returns of that.
* People that also grew up in a two-parent home: Raul Neto
Has the message to Derrick Favors gotten through about helping the team by being more aggressive?
We really haven’t had to message much. I think with Derrick, there’s been a few things. He’s just, he’s still young and he’s maturing and everybody grows and mature at their own rate.
But I think it’s safe to say with what we’ve done the last few years, we’ve given him a large share of responsibility on both ends of the court for the team. We’ve honored him with a very big contract.
I just think he’s just really comfortable in his own skin, you know, on and off the court. And he just, he amazes me every day. He, even for a quiet man, he’s very perceptive. He’ll bring up really good points, and I think all of this wrapped up into one allows him to really harness all of his natural abilities.
And we’re just tickled with him, his commitment, his ability and want to play the four and the five without question. That, many times big guys will give you pushback on certain positions and roles, and Derrick, again, since he’s been with the program, has really just accepted and trusted with blind faith, and we really appreciate that and believe in him because of it.
As a married man, what advice would you give to a man whose wife has complaints about his body odor?
I’m staring at a big stick of Arrid Extra Dry…Just general hygiene. Don’t wear a t-shirt to dinner after you’ve worked out in it. (1280)

Sacre’s entrance killed all momentum
by Shehzeb Imam on Oct 6, 2015 | 11:52 PM
Sacre is there to make sure we don’t make it to a 2nd OT

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Silver Screen and Roll.
I don’t care if it’s preseason or not. F Utah always and forever.

I hate them slightly less than the Celtics.
by LadyAlannya on Oct 4, 2015 | 9:07 PM
I hate team less, but the fans so so so much more.
by BULLETS MAKE ME SEAU on Oct 4, 2015 | 9:08 PM
I dunno the Sac Kings fans are up there.
I basically just pity Clippers fans.
by LadyAlannya on Oct 4, 2015 | 9:08 PM
This is worse
by BULLETS MAKE ME SEAU on Oct 4, 2015 | 9:09 PM
Eh. They are females in Utah. I think they’ve been punished enough.
by LadyAlannya on Oct 4, 2015 | 9:09 PM

by BULLETS MAKE ME SEAU on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:05 PM

by The Lakers’ Future on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:06 PM
Yeah. I expect better from Nicholas.
by Avee on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:07 PM
Hayward looks like he is straigt outta the 50’s
by The Lakers’ Future on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:28 PM
I’m a little confused by the score
Why do the Lakers have a higher number?
by VoR on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:29 PM
Pre-season. They’ll settle down once the season starts.
by SoCalGal on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:30 PM
Freaking Gobert so tall.
by LadyAlannya on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:43 PM
Screw you Booker
by Shehzeb Imam on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:50 PM
MWP needs to get in there and teach him a lesson
by BULLETS MAKE ME SEAU on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:51 PM

by Shehzeb Imam on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:51 PM
Send in Sacre
give Booker a taste of his own dirty medicine
by sumo390 on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:51 PM
Yep let’s use up Sacre’s fouls on Booker.
by LadyAlannya on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:52 PM
Hes wearing a mask too
by sumo390 on Oct 4, 2015 | 10:52 PM
what just happened in this game
by The Lakers’ Future on Oct 4, 2015 | 11:07 PM
The shit hit the fan line up I hope we’ll never see in the regular season.
by LadyAlannya on Oct 4, 2015 | 11:08 PM
this line up reminds me too much of last season
by The Lakers’ Future on Oct 4, 2015 | 11:09 PM
byron isn’t making the fact that he’s mailing it in any less obvious at this point
by Lakerchariot on Oct 4, 2015 | 11:07 PM
Anthony Brown looks long
almost like Wesley Johnson.
by av1o3 on Oct 4, 2015 | 11:12 PM
Don’t doom him man….
by Lakerchariot on Oct 4, 2015 | 11:12 PM
Well, at least I can understand the score now… :disappointed:
by VoR on Oct 4, 2015 | 11:16 PM
Terrible lineups byron
You started out so good lol
by JunkiePrince24 on Oct 4, 2015 | 11:18 PM
I declare Raul Neto the dance champ of the rookies. And no one wins on the singing front.
