Game 61 of 82: Utah Jazz at Philadelphia 76ers (25-36)

quin jerry sign

Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on the game
I felt like we were a little sluggish at the beginning of the game, and I was really pleased with, there was a — you know, about four minutes left in the second quarter, I thought we started to kinda pick it up a little bit. And we were awfully quiet early on, and our defense kinda got us going, especially in the third quarter, and it was good to see. I was pleased with our effort.
** Snyder on the slow start
We were on a plane, as you know, for about five, six hours yesterday. Normally, we shoot the day of the game. We decided not to this morning with the weather, and also a little longer to get here, and just, I was concerned about our energy and our legs. And we found, you know, we found a little of that when we needed it, but it took us a while.

** Gordon Hayward on the game
Yeah, it was a tough game for us. It was a grind-out game, for sure…Especially with the travel we had, being on the plane, and the weather and everything, so. It was good that we finally fought through it. You know, we didn’t start out too hot, but we fought through some adversity. We played goo–really well in the second half. Defense was still strong, even though we gave up, like, what was it, three 3s at end? I mean, so, 83 points is pretty good, and just a all-around good win for us.
** Derrick Favors on the game
You know, the first half, you know, it was a tough first half for us. You know, shots wasn’t falling. You know, we wasn’t communicating like we, you know, like we usually do on the defensive end. In the second half, you know, we came together. We talked, and you know, we stayed with it, and you know, we came out in the second half, played like a different team. Played like we really wanted to win the game, grind the whole game and got the win. … When it get down to the fourth quarter, you know, everybody buying in the way Quin want us to d–coach Quin want us to do.
** Favors on facing the Nets next
It really don’t matter to me no more. You know, I was in my rookie year. You know, they traded me. I’m with Utah now. So, it really don’t bother me no more.
Craig Bolerjack: Home is SLC.
Favors: Yeah, home is Salt Lake and Atlanta.
** Rudy Gobert on the game
That was a kind of a fighting game…I think we took time to really be, get focused on defense, and we got focused really in the second quarter. We start communicating better, and we start just playing our game…[Earlier in the game,] we weren’t communicating. They were getting everything they wanted, and we turned it up in the second quarter, and we got back to our defense and playing our game.

** Boler to Gobert, post-game: What’s the process for you when you see a ball? Because so many come your way. And I mean, I understand your size, but in your mind, do you just take on the thought of everything coming your way is gonna belong to Rudy Gobert?
** Boler, asking Gobert about his elbow: I saw you rubbing it.

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Liberty Ballers.

i’m glad we are not the jazz and aren’t building around gordon heyward as our best player. to me, that is setting them up for prolonged mediocrity, which is why i’m so glad that our rebuild truly doesn’t start until we have that potential superstar on our squad (which is hopefully embiid)
by swaggy T on Mar 6, 2015 | 6:48 PM

Thank God we didn’t draft Exum

Game 60 of 82: Utah Jazz at Boston Celtics (24-36)

March 5, 2015

end of game

Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on defending the final play
You know, we weren’t as aggressive on the ball as we needed to be. Rudy [Gobert] was too far back, and we let him get on the inside of us, where they could throw the ball over the top rather than stand between him and the basket. And you know, two lessons learned.
** Snyder, asked if he’s questioning himself over whether he should have had Gobert inside, or did he like him on the ball
Well, he wasn’t on the ball. We put Rudy, we’ve always had Rudy on the ball, and we had [Derrick] Fav[ors] in there. And you know, you can question everything that happens. It, like I said, he got behind us. It was a lot — just a couple of little execution things that we didn’t do properly and you know, they made — that was the result.
** Snyder on his decision to have Rodney Hood on the inbounds play on the Jazz’s final possession
Yeah, you know, I think, you know, Rodney, he’s also got length, and I think he’s a good passer, and in that situation too, we weren’t, it wasn’t a late-clock where we — it was gonna be a catch-and-shoot play, and I wanted to have Rodney on the floor in case the ball came back to him, ’cause he’s one of the guys that’s, you know, capable of creating a shot.

bench mobCoaches got their workout in tonight.

** Derrick Favors on the final play
Yeah, I didn’t even see [the pass]. I was denying my man. He was at the top of the key. I really didn’t see the pass or the catch. I just turned around and saw him shoot the ball at the basket. But you know, it was a good play.
** Favors on his improved game
You know, Quin, coach Quin talk to me a lot about stuff, and you know, I work with the assistant coaches a lot. And you know, we ju–I just keep improving on my shot, working on post moves, working within the offense and on defense. You know, just watching film and just learning where I need to be playing alongside Rudy, learning how to space and just all that stuff. So I mean, it’s a lot of stuff that I still need to improve on and get better at, but for right now, you know, I think I’m doing a good job.
** Gordon Hayward on the game
Very tough. I think we were disappointed with our play overall as a team, ’cause it doesn’t come down to the last play. I mean, the last play obviously is tough to swallow, but, it’s just disappointing…Just unfortunate for us. Unfortunate.
** Hayward on the final play
It was a great pass. That’s what coach [Brad] Stevens does. He’s excellent in those situations of coming up with the play. You know, I know it better than anybody, so. It was a great play, great design. They knew we were switching. The pass had to be perfect to get it over Rudy and over Rod, and it was. And then he made a good finish too, so. Credit them with their last play.

Rudy Gobert slam, salute and salute #rudygobert #utahjazz

A video posted by moni (@monilogue) on

 

Pre-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder, asked if he’s more concerned about repetition or rest at this point in the season
A little of both, you know? I think, someone told me we have, like, seven rookies right now on our roster, which has gotta be some sort of — it’s great, you know? And obviously, a couple of our rookies are older in Joe [Ingles] and Eli[jah Millsap], but they’re still rookies, so. We sh–in theory, we should have fresh legs. We’ve pra–we practice hard. So, I think, I’ve tried to be conscious. You know, we were off yesterday, completely off. Kind of called a lockout day, where, you know, I didn’t want anybody in the gym. Guys always sneak in, but we’ve gotta be, you know, I feel good about kind of w–trying to work with Mark McKown and Gary Briggs to make sure our guys, you know, we’re not overworking ‘em, where they can stay fresh. I mean, I think if we’re not, you don’t get as much out of it as if you’re dragging, you know? You don’t get as good an indication of where you are as a team, and, but we try to balance that with practice. We’re still practicing.
** Snyder on Dante Exum’s next step, and if it’s just a matter of being aggressive and confident
I think that’s part of it. I think there’s some skills too, and some strength, that, some, really some things that are, you know, that are real areas of improvement. You know, just his strength and his physicality. I think in the next year or two, we’re gonna look at him and go, “Wow, you know, he’s really grown physically.” And I think the same is true of just, you know, his ability to get in the paint and create and use his tools, you know, in the game situation when the game goes faster.

** Gordon Hayward on what the the Jazz have to do to be more efficient offensively
Can’t turn the ball over. It’s probably been echoed by everybody. I mean, it’s just that simple. It’ll help us out on defense too, so.
** Hayward on Dante Exum’s next step
I think just being more aggressive, knowing when to take his shots. Seems a little passive, and I mean, that’s pretty normal as a rookie. You’re just out there playing to not mess up, you know, so when he stops thinking and really starts attacking the basket, I mean, he’s athletic, explosive, he’s long, he can really make plays around the rim for himself and others, so when he does that, he’ll be really good.
** Trey Burke on what the the Jazz have to do to be more efficient offensively
It’s turnovers. We gotta, you know, clean up tho–that area, turning the ball over, take care of the ball, and just keep playing defense the way we have been.
** Burke on Dante Exum’s next step
Just for him to be aggressive, you know? He’s gon, you know, he’s gon go through some growing pains, same thing everybody goes through. I went through it last season. You know, so, you know, a guy like him, we just need for him to be aggressive. You know, when he gets in the paint, use his length to be able to score over defenders, get to the line. And you know, I’m sure he’ll become more aggressive.

quin-T

Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on the game
The first half, I felt — it’s hard to feel like you’re playing good offensively because you’re not scoring, but I thought at least we were getting some open shots. Gordon in particular, I think that was the case; at home last game too, where he had some clean looks, and just want him to keep shooting. I thought the way he started the second half, you know, gave us a little life on offense, and you know, Ger–Derrick [Favors] really had a good game. I mean, he just, he had a presence on both ends of the floor the whole night.
** Snyder, asked about the bench and Rodney Hood’s contributions
I mean, I told our team after the game, I think one of the things that’s nice right now is you have a bench, and it’s a cohesive bench. You know, it’s hard sometimes for a player when the rotation’s not always the same, and although you wanna smooth it out a little bit, ’cause I think it helps players to have an idea when they’re playing and with whom. But it’s also a luxury to have guys that have the amount of character that, you know, they’re in for three minutes and somebody else is playing good, and they’re supportive. And that’s what our bench is playing like right now. I mean, Trey’s been, he’s played better than anyone, really, in the last week, and tonight, you know, Dante was playing real good, and he’s got Dante’s back. And like you said, Rodney, and you know, maybe one of the best contributions tonight was from Jeremy Evans.
** Snyder on his technical
Everybody always likes it when I get emotional…I didn’t want us to turn it over. That was the long and short — I told [Trevor] Book[er] maybe if I’d’ve caught the ball, I wouldn’t, I would’ve got away with it.

quin shaking hands

** Gordon Hayward on the Jazz’s first 3-game win streak of the season
Yeah, besides that Lakers game, you know, we could be on a better run. So, I mean, it’s growth for us as a team. We’ll see how we do tomorrow.
** Rudy Gobert on how his role has changed since Enes Kanter was traded
I mean, I’m starting now, so I’m guarding the best player on the other team, and I feel like the Jazz believe in me and that’s why I’m happy to play this way. And I feel way more confident.
** Gobert, asked about the mid-range jumper he took at the end of the game
Yeah, of course. You know, I’m working on it every day, and I feel way more confident, and I think it’s gonna come pretty soon. It’s supposed to be a surprise, but…

** Jeremy Evans on playing in front of his family
They always come, and most time I don’t get to play, but I’m sure they’re excited, and you know, had a great time.
** Evans on what Snyder said at halftime
Coach came in at halftime and said, you know, if we don’t make shots, we still can play defense, and work and try to win the game.
** Rodney Hood, asked what has changed for the team defensively
I mean, just our focus, you know what I mean? It was, everything was new to us, and we just got the hang of it, and you know, we took some losses, and you know, but now we’re coming together, and it helps to have, you know, Fav and Rudy playing like they’re playing on the defensive end, and you know, the guards just try to contain people. So it’s been great.

premature confetti

Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on Trey Burke
I saw him get upset a couple times at a few teammates for something going on on the defensive end, which I like. You know, it means something when you’re playing hard and you have a breakdown, and — I like seeing our guys talk to each other like that.
** Snyder, asked whether the Jazz overly depend on Rudy Gobert’s defense
I think it’s exactly the opposite…We’ve been good defensively even without Rudy. In fact, I don’t know what the numbers show exactly, but I think, you know, of late, we’ve been equally effective even with him on the bench. And I’ve kinda said it before, I think he, I think his plays — it’s like when [Trevor] Book[er], like, blocks a shot, or you know, Eli[jah Millsap] gets a steal. I mean, everybody’s level kinda goes up, and I think Rudy’s been able to do that for us. But there’s a lotta guys that are taking a lot of pride defensively.

block bros

** Derrick Favors, asked if he “minds” Rudy Gobert is getting all the attention for the Jazz’s improved defense
It don’t really matter to me, man. You know, yeah, he gon get a lot of the attention. You know, I’m a good teammate. It really don’t matter to me. He deserves it. You know, he comes out and play hard every night. You know, he get a lot of blocked shots, get a lot of rebounds. But I just go out there, just try to play my part. You know, the shots that he don’t block, you know, I try to get ‘em, or contest the shot so you know, we can get a rebound or whatever.
** Rudy Gobert, asked what’s changed or is different defensively from last year to this year
I think we take pride this year. Of course, we’re getting better and we talk a lot more, but I think it’s just pride…This year, we care about defense, you know?
** Gobert, asked who does more directing traffic on defense between him and Favors
I’m try to talk. You know, coach wants me to talk a lot. I know Derrick is not — his personality don’t talk a lot, but I think he’s doing a much better job of talking. And you know, Gordon [Hayward]’s the same, you know, pretty shy, that don’t talk a lot, but they do a much better job of talking [now].
** Trey Burke, asked if the game has slowed down for him
It’s slowed down a lot. I’ve been putting in a lot of work in after practice, with floaters to, you know, just extra reps. And watching film has been a huge, huge growth for me individually, because I’m able to see the game at a, from a different perspective. I’m able to make reads at a higher level, and I think I’m just growing.
