One. Dennis Lindsey on the Jazz’s injuries: This league is about handling injuries and poor play and judgment calls and wins and loss and–losses, and you know, we don’t want to have a hangover coming out of this, and we don’t want to be a victim in our conversations to the media and to our fans. …
No one cares that we’re hurt. So you know, we’ve gotta move past that, again, and compete, and compete if Rodney Hood goes out for a game, or Gordon Hayward goes out for a game, or Derrick [Favors]’s out for a little bit.
You know, we wanna be a no-excuse team, and again, we do not want to be victims whether it be a missed call at the end of the game or injuries. You know, we have enough, and our standards are higher than they were two years ago, and so, everybody should hold us accountable.
Lindsey on the Jazz policy of not releasing information on injuries: I know some are getting frustrated with us being vague, and one, there’s, you know, there’s confidentiality issues, you know, with guys and their health.
But two, more importantly, some of these injuries is, is we don’t know exactly how Jo–George [Hill]’s toe is gonna respond. Is that 24 hours? Is that 48? Is it 72? Is it a week? Again, it’s the same thing with his thumb…Same thing, frankly, happened with Gordon Hayward and his broken finger. The most honest answer is, we didn’t know if it was gonna be four, six, or eight weeks…The same thing with Rodney [Hood].
Two. Quin Snyder on the Jazz’s wing defense after the Rockets game: I told Gordon in front of the team, ’cause I wanted to emphasize how important it is, and I’ll say it again, that when he defends on the level that he’s capable of, our team, you know, benefits in a multiplicity of ways…
If our wings can make [defensive] plays — you know, Gordon at the, you know, first in line — that allows Rudy [Gobert] and George and Dante [Exum] and Shelvin [Mack], whoever’s on the ball, to be even more effective. And to me, that’s a step that our defense is taking, and that’s a crucial, crucial step…
When Gordon internalizes that, and you see him doing that in addition to seeing, I think, George and Rudy, who consistently do that, you know, if Gordon gets to that level too — and it’s just a question of him continuing to stay focused on it, because no one wants to win more than he does.
Dennis Lindsey on the Jazz’s wing defense after the Miami game: We just can’t al–rely on Rudy cleaning up every mistake. If our wings don’t shift and communicate and aren’t in good stances and play with force, it puts Rudy in foul trouble. It makes Rudy and Derrick move over into help positions, and then you get dump-offs. You get offensive rebounds. The same thing with the guards.
And so, we just have to look at ourselves collectively and say, you know, even though that we’ve done very well defensively and even though we were shorthanded last night, our level of competitiveness didn’t meet the level of the game, and the result is the result.
Three. Jerry Sloan, rocking the John Deere shirt.
And while we’re on the subject of Jerry:
Four. Quin Snyder on Rudy Gobert’s play of late: Rudy and I watched some — he and Alex Jensen have a really unique relationship. And Alex has been really hard on him, and demanding of him, but also really supportive of him. And two games ago, I think Rudy only had four shots.
Alex went through and found — I think everybody on our team that, maybe not Jeff Withey, but almost every–e–I wanna s–let’s say seven guys, all our wings, everyone had a turnover trying to throw Rudy the ball. Now, whether it was their fault or his fault or someone made a good play or whatever, the point is they were on rolls to the rim; seals after he rolls; you know, a spinout lob; something in transition.
But we were trying to get him the ball in situations where he could be successful. We just didn’t, weren’t able to make the play. And I think what’s happening is Rudy’s been more precise and more forceful in the things that he does, whether that’s getting position down low or rolling hard, and our guys are learning to find him better. Both to see him and then also to just fundamentally do it, be able to deliver the ball. You know, to put the pass on time and on target.
And if he keeps doing those things, we’ll keep getting better at throwing him the ball. And you know, I, when we watched the other night, just was like, look, you’re, if you keep doing these things, you’re gonna get more attempts. And if you don’t get the attempts, that means someone’s pulled in from the weak side and you basically got someone a wide-open shot.
So, it’s sometimes hard for a guy that, you know, you want to touch the ball and sometimes when you don’t it can get frustrating. But we cont–we’ll continue to look for him and he’s gotta continue to be willing to sacrifice, just like everybody has to be, for the group.
Five. Quin Snyder on the Jazz’s penchant for giving up 20-plus point leads: I think it’s a combination of a couple things. One, it’s the NBA, and it’s a make-or-miss league, and a lot of times you’ll have a stretch where you shoot well or play well and then the other team s–will have a similar stretch. Instead of being back and forth every possession, there’s runs.
I don’t think we’ve always done a good job of, as good a job as managing those runs from a defensive end where you wanna just, if you can get a couple stops during that period, it really mitigates the run. And really, it’s human nature. When you get, you know, when you have some separation sometimes, it’s easier to let down. …
It’s not insignificant too that, you know, Dante Exum had five fouls, early. We lost Rodney Hood for the second half. I mean, there’s some other things that have gone on during these periods that, you know, in a game that are challenging, so it puts even more pressure on each possession.
And you know, we wanna be able to handle that, but there is a reality to the situation too, where I think we’ve played more games than anybody in the league right now, and there’s a fatigue component with all the adversity that this group has faced at this point in the year.
You know, you guys have, you s–the injury thing is a challenge. You know, and tonight we had Gordon have to leave to get, you know, get X-rays, and he’s OK. We had Rodney have to leave to go back, and he’s OK. He’s got a, you know, what, a sore hamstring? So, you know, who knows where all that goes, but I guess what I’m saying is that, you know, it’s, your ability to handle those runs, I think, that’s the most important thing.
Six. Quin Snyder on what could or should have been done to minimize the 29-1 Warriors run: Part of it’s just Golden State. You know, you have to understand that they’re gonna come out like that and there’s gonna be runs during the game.
To try to minimize them — I thought there were a couple offensive possessions where we thought we had a good look and maybe something could go, and when we didn’t score we didn’t transition to defense. We didn’t get to the next play, so to speak.
And you know, y–sometimes you can talk about that, how quickly they go end to end, but until you face it, it catches you off guard. But I didn’t think we got to the next play, just mentally. And they were getting some easy stuff, some layups.
And then on the defensive end, even when we — you know, we had a few breakdowns. They make you break down. It’s not like you can look at it and say, “Hey, this was our mistake.” Sometimes, you know, they make you make mistakes.
But even when we did get a stop, we didn’t get the defensive rebound, and those are deflating plays. So I think both those, those two types of possessions — you know, they’re too good without those, you know, without transition layups and offensive rebound buckets. So, if that’s gonna happen, you’re not gonna be able to minimize anything.
Seven. Draymond Green, asked what he and Kevin Durant were laughing about after he got a technical at the end of the game: We was laughing at Quin Snyder kept calling timeouts. I mean, bro, you down 10 with 6 seconds left. It’s kinda over, my man. Just go to the restaurant, have a good dinner. Just chill, like. So that’s what we were laughing at…That was funny.
Dennis Lindsey on that timeout: Many times, we’re playing games within the game to make sure that Quin understands personnel, strategy, coming out of the timeout, can someone take instruction, execute a play that’s drawn up on the fly. So, we — win or lose, we were trying to compete, one, and two, we were trying to accomplish execution ideals, and you know, we won’t apologize for that.
Eight. Gordon Hayward on injured players sitting out: There’s certain times where it’s not our decision to not play. There are certain times where guys wanna play, and the coaching staff and the training staff feels like it’s in the team’s best interest to not play [and] to recover and to get right so you can be healthier at the end of the season.
So, some of it is just — you know, there’s certain injuries you really can’t play with. You know, so it’s unfortunate what’s happened. I don’t think that’s fair [for current players to be compared to John Stockton and Karl Malone], and I don’t think we have soft guys on the team.
Nine. RIP #TakeNote. From now on, it’ll always be #TakeFnNote. Gobert after the Kings win:
Ten. Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Week (UDQM)
** Matt Harpring on Rudy Gobert: Last year and years prior, he would stand and watch. This year, he’s made himself available. His hands have gotten a lot better…and he’s finishing.
** Harpring on Jazz players: They’re waiting for [James] Harden just to make his move, but not coming early on him. And they’re waiting for a dribble. And then the finish on the other side, nice finish.
** Harpring on coaching: If I’m not totally committed, I can’t get in it.
** Quin Snyder on George Hill’s injury: Those are hard ones, because you rely so much, you know, on that appendage.
** Snyder, asked if Gobert got up to play Karl Anthony-Towns: Trey Lyles was the one who seemed to get up for Towns, his old roommate.
** Craig Bolerjack on Dante Exum fall: Dante hits the hard wood.
** Boler, multiple times a night: Strokes it nice. (H/T @urzishra)
** Boler on a “Where Are You Watching” submission with someone’s kid: I like the little guy down there. I do.
** Boler to Ron Boone on “Where Are You Watching” submission with couple on date night: Booner, you’ve got a hard decision to make before the night’s out. Date night with the wife. Oh ho, don’t disappoint her, Booner. (H/T @5kl)
** Boler on Shelvin Mack: Mack is so good low. (H/T @5kl)
** Harpring on Exum drive: You see him bury his head down and get through the gap.
** Harpring on Rodney Hood injury: You always hold your breath when Hood goes down. And really, any Jazz player.
** Boler on Gordon Hayward: An “oh my” moment, where Hayward now is bent over.
** Boler on Gobert rebound: His length was so evident right there.
** DJ/PK asking Joe Ingles about Christmas carols in Australia: How does that work down there, Joe?
** DJ/PK to Ingles on David Locke: What do the guys on the team think of that little dude?
** Kristen Kenney on Hayward: He said he banged it, and it’s swollen. So, he is dealing with that swelling.

After Kings start 11-0, Jazz go on a 20-3 run.
That scoring was bound to end at some point.

Too bad Utah chickened and tried to avoid the dubs.
Then let’s take this opportunity to pad the individual stats for our four all star. Steph went 0-8 on 3s yesterday? He might go15-15 tonight.
Let’s pad their stats and make the case for their allstar, first/second team NBA, DPOY and MVP selections. If the opponent teams want to avoid head-on confrontation, we will make them pay!

Utah is no pushover at 14-9….
Durant isn’t playing well, but we’re almost up by 30 points on a second of a back 2 back, in high altitude…
It makes one wonder just how strong we’re going to be by the end of the season.

Just a correct call they’re only making one way, I guess.
by Ronaldinho on Dec 8, 2016 | 7:45 PM
I agree but they are not consistent and seem to always favor the Jazz

i knew gobert would be a problem
by anyia11 on Dec 8, 2016 | 7:47 PM
Warriors too scared of Gobert to the rim
Usually they go SBDS to pull him out, but that’s not an option tonight
by Badly Browned on Dec 8, 2016 | 7:55 PM
lol lead down to 5

B2B + Altitude. This is exactly what you expect: standing around, pushed jumpers, etc.

Why can’t Durant score on the Utah C squad?

I’d be so unbelievably annoyed if I had to read the stupid, corporate-approved opinions of Warriors fans on the bottom line like they have for the Jazz broadcast
Unfortunately it seems like it’ll probably happen eventually
by belilaugh on Dec 8, 2016 | 8:11 PM
Also, this game was a scheduled loss until Utah decided to rest all of their guys
If the Warriors eke out a 1 point win, that’s a good result for me
by belilaugh on Dec 8, 2016 | 8:12 PM
Ian Clark killing the Jazz is still a thing apparently lol

Utah’s offense is not great, their coach (Quin Snyder) plays too much by the book.
Last year they leaded the league in passes per game but were at the bottom for assists.
by Portuguese Barbosa on Dec 6, 2016 | 7:57 PM
They’re going to make the playoffs this year however
So something seems to be working
by rtvanharen on Dec 6, 2016 | 7:57 PM
Their defense. It always worked. And their one of the teams that really pushed for the Playoffs in the West this year.
Boris Diaw, George Hill, Joe Johnson, Shelvin Mack (last year signing).
If i was an Utah fan, i honestly prefer some other coach that played in other tempo and gave more minutes to their youth in Trey Lyles and Dante Exum.
by Portuguese Barbosa on Dec 6, 2016 | 8:00 PM

Dear Earl Watson;
Fucking quit playing Alex Len with Dragan Bender. Quit playing Marquese Chriss with Tyson Chandler. YOU GOT TWO BIG MEN IN THE DRAFT THAT LIKE PLAYING TOGETHER. YOU DON’T PLAY THEM TOGETHER BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT THINKING CORRECTLY. Trade one of our THREE GUARDS THAT DO THE SAME THING. USE DEVIN BOOKER LIKE HE SHOULD BE USED AND GIVE HIM THE BALL. He actually plays basketball. He actually uhm, simulates and stimulates offense when he has the ball in his hands. Though I believe at this point it needs to be said in a more direct way. STOP-PLAYING-BLEDSOE-AT-POINT-GUARD.FOREVER. He’s a great player. He’s a fucking donkey show of a point guard. Side note: THAT WILL NOT CHANGE. Further on Bender and Len: If you’re going to play Bender at the 3, THAT’S FINE. Don’t, however, further complicate that ALREADY complicated situation of working on culturing a 7 foot three spot out there by putting ANOTHER 7 foot “traditional center” alongside him. That is beyond insane and confusing for both players. In every single way it is a DETRIMENT to both of them. If Bender’s at the 3, if you’re going to put in another 7 footer, for god sakes, make it Tyson. Tyson Chandler has won a championship, been on team USA and completely understands his role, as does everyone else on the team, as is his entire point to direct the young players as advertised when we got him. So stop it. Absolutely stop that. Though if you continue practicing insanity, if you absolutely continue to insist, than please heed this only bit of advice. GIVE DEVIN BOOKER THE BALL AND GIVE HIM THE KEYS ALREADY. Thanks.

If you combine Heyward with the Wall/Cousins dream, then thats scary, damn.

I take off my socks, look back up, and we are somehow within 6
by Dragan Nkemdiche on Dec 6, 2016 | 9:13 PM
Now you know what i said earlier about Quin Snyder.
He’s just a lucky guy on the right job at the right time.
This Utah team has way too much talent to play like they play. Their individual defense gives them wins, his coach not so much.

That’s game. Thanks Luke
by Shehzeb Imam on Dec 5, 2016 | 9:52 PM
fucking pissed because we lost due to Luke’s retarded starting line up
by Shehzeb Imam on Dec 5, 2016 | 9:53 PM
Why do you think they called you up from the d-league?

Terrible first shot by Gallo.

Dang, I thought Hood wasn’t supposed to play

Utah’s arena sounds quieter than the can
by That’s the Jokic on Dec 3, 2016 | 7:37 PM
What happened to the thing early in the season where we didn’t just abandon shooters on the three point line?
by That’s the Jokic on Dec 3, 2016 | 7:59 PM
Exum an impressive defender
by TakeFive on Dec 3, 2016 | 8:05 PM
I’m glad we are in the game
by SDcat09 on Dec 3, 2016 | 8:25 PM
It really helps having Hill out

I’m tired of watching the struggle
It’s plenty of things wrong. How can a team regress but yet get players back

by Rainbow skyline on Dec 3, 2016 | 8:40 PM
is it too early in the season to throw in the towel?

Sorry if I repeat myself a lot this year, but Heat need to go all in for Hayward in free agency.

Good luck getting him away from Utah
They are gonna open the bank for him.

by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:11 PM
Rodney Hood can never miss against us
i don’t know why
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:17 PM
Yuck, 7-0 run
by eastman88 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:20 PM
Damn, he really doesn’t miss
by iCheerio on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:20 PM
our defense is garbage
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:25 PM
Water is wet.
by Bobbythegreat on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:25 PM
Why does it seem like Hood always lights us up?
by TexansRocketsStros on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:25 PM
So that’s the type of game it’s going to be.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:27 PM
Ok, they really can’t miss
by TexansRocketsStros on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:33 PM
They hit every shot
Didn’t matter if we defended or not.
by eastman88 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:34 PM
Rodney Hood = Michael Jordan apparently
by Relocated_astro on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:34 PM
MJ shot nothing but midrange and dunks at 49%
Hood is shooting 3s at 100%
At least the rockets clamped up MJ whenever we played him
by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:36 PM
This is just about
by Bobbythegreat on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:40 PM
they cant miss a 3, we cant make a 3
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:44 PM
Its like we took a time machine back to 2015-16
by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:44 PM
poor box out Dek
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:45 PM
Probably shouldn’t be asking him to box out Gobert.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:46 PM
But, you know, constant switching.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:46 PM
Even worse when you are playing a SF at PF
and switching them on a monster like Gobert
by Bobbythegreat on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:47 PM
This is like the Toronto game
I wholeheartedly expect the Jazz to shoot something like 60% tonight, when you’re on, you’re on.
And Utah has always fucked Houston over by weird rando occurrences.
by Relocated_astro on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:51 PM
I hope we do whatever is possible to prevent a playoff series against them, especally if they get homecourt
If that means going from the 4 seed to the 6 seed, so be it
by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:52 PM
we’re going to lose by a lot tonight
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 8:52 PM
Why does Hood always go off against Houston?
I don’t know what the city or the rockets have done to piss him off
by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:01 PM
At least D’Antoni can make halftime adjustments
by JohnSimonDOPY on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:06 PM
The Jazz just missed a 3, badly
things are looking up
by bt20 on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:19 PM
Ffs stop fouling.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:38 PM
just when we cut the lead down
we decided to be idiots
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:56 PM
Wow, that was a stupid pass attempt.
by KLP713 on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:57 PM
now Joe Johnson is killing us
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 9:59 PM
let’s see if we can avoid losing by 20
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:06 PM
Gordon Hayward free stroking it
no one interested in contesting at all
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:09 PM
at least future jazz Kyle Wiltjer gets to play
by NVP on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:10 PM
He’ll totally be on that team.
by eastman88 on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:11 PM
always hated losing in SLC
by PunkRocket on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:20 PM
It happens fairly often it seems.
Jazz have always been a good home team.
by eastman88 on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:21 PM
They are with the guidance of
the evil spirit of Sloan in that building
by PunkRocket on Nov 29, 2016 | 10:27 PM

I am envious of some of the players the Jazz have. Mainly their best, Hayward, Gobert and Hood are all awesome and their addition of George Hill was smart.

Didn’t watch this one
I have to say life is a lot more enjoyable when you abstain from all Minnesota sports. I went for a jog got some fresh air checked the box score said yup sounds about right and moved on. Thats about as much time as I’ll give this team. 10+ years of god awfulness will do it. Seasons not about wins its about dunks.
Posted by 2004 Twolves on Nov 28, 2016 | 9:28 PM
One. Happy Thanksgiving!
Two. Love this so much. Literally half the team showed up!
Trey Lyles on seven Jazz players attending the SLC Stars game: Everybody knew a couple guys were gonna go, and then a lot of guys just showed up. We justed wanted to go out there and show support. This is the first time we were home and they had a game, so we wanted to go watch them…[Joel Bolomboy] told us w–he was playing the night before, so we knew that. So, we all were talking about going on the plane on the plane ride home.
Quin Snyder (who was there too) on Jazz players turning out to support Joel Bolomboy: It says a lot about Joel too, that the guys would think to do that and want to come support him.
Three. Topic of the Week: Rudy Gobert’s hands.
Trey Lyles on Rudy Gobert’s hands: He’s getting a lot better. You know, last year it was kind of bad, but this year, you know, he’s catching a lot more balls. And you know, we’re giving him confidence. We’re staying on him about it, and he’s, you know, really taken a focus to it.
Gordon Hayward on Rudy Gobert’s hands: Well, I mean, I think he’s getting better. I think with him, it’s more anticipation of, you know, like, being ready for the ball. I mean, he’s got big hands, so I mean, he’s, he should be able to catch those, and I think he will. It’s just something where he’s gotta be mentally focused and mentally ready thinking that the ball’s coming to him every time. So, you know, it’s good they’re working with him.
Quin Snyder on Rudy Gobert’s hands: Rudy’s trying to get better…He’s committed to it and hopefully will continue to get better.
George Hill on working with Rudy Gobert on his hands: I tell him every day we gotta work on at least 100 catches where you’re just throwing bullet passes and things in traffic to get his hands better. ‘Cause, I tell him that’s, you know, six, eight points a game where maybe we bobble it [or] we don’t throw it, you know, good, and we miss the opportunity to get an easy bucket, things like that. So, just trying to help him out.
Rudy Gobert on working with George Hill: I just wanted to show him that I can catch, and I told him to learn to throw lobs too.
Flashback: Rudy Gobert on his hands, locker room cleanout 2016: My hands are good…People think I got bad hands. I think I have good hands, to be honest.
Four. Tame in comparison to what we’ve seen in the past, but we’ve got our first Trey Lyles bench celebration of the year (that I noticed):
Five. People calling…
People calling Jamal Murray “Steph Murray”: Craig Bolerjack
People calling Alec Burks “Eric Burks”: Quin Snyder
People calling Gordon Hayward “Korver”: Ron Boone
Six. Quin Snyder on George Hill’s return: I think he just gives — he gives our other players confidence because there’s a stability when you have somebody who’s a floor leader. And you know, I think our guys, you know, in the beginning of the year they felt that. And then when that’s gone, you know, we have to be able to be better with him not on the floor.
Snyder on George Hill’s return, some more: You know, [Rudy Gobert] didn’t concentrate in Denver. He let the game, the fouls, the, a lot of things break his concentration. And tonight, I felt like he was more focused on that. He was a beneficiary of some of the things that George was doing. I think George’s presence on the court helped stabilize Rudy.
Snyder on George Hill’s return, some more some more: George can make plays, but it’s his presence that is encouraging to me to, that Rodney [Hood] and Gordon, Rodney and Gordon get a lot, and with a lot comes a lotta responsibility…Those guys have a obligation to make plays for other people and to play defense, and I think George subtlely reminds them of that.
Seven. A public service announcement from Joe Ingles on behalf of all Australians:
DJ/PK: Turkey is an obsession on Thanksgiving in America. Is there a certain food that is identified exclusively with some form of holiday or occasion in Australia?
Ingles: Probably just beer…Not that I drink one. I would have water. But everyone in Australia who is not a professional athlete would love to have a nice cold beer.
DJ/PK: Is it Foster’s?
Ingles: No, for the one millionth time I’ve been asked that in America. We don’t — no.
Eight. And a public service announcement from Rudy Gobert as well:
Nine. Dancing Jazz Fan is baaaaack!
Ten. Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Week (UDQM)
** Matt Harpring on Rodney Hood: Ride him while he’s hot right now, for sure. (H/T @bjcseven)
** Quin Snyder: For me personally, it’s difficult for me to react too much to small things.
** Snyder on Joel Bolomboy’s time with the Stars: What you want to do more than anything is just let a guy have an opportunity to go up and down and get his timing.
** Harpring on George Hill trying to get a loose ball from Emmanuel Mudiay: I mean, he’s just on top of him. Doesn’t care, you know, what happens to his body.
** Craig Bolerjack to Harpring on Jamal Murray: Matty, he’s gone 32 minutes.
Harpring: At 19, he can go 32 minutes easily, every night.
** Ron Boone on Joe Johnson: You know what’s coming once he starts backing you in and changing directions and putting his backside into your chest. You know he’s gonna get to a certain spot.
** Gordon Hayward on Kyle Korver: He’s a hot guy that can really score. (H/T @blazerdog38)
