Withey sighting
promptly REEJEEECTED by Anthony Davis.
*Still would rather have Jeff than Omer

by Dfranchise on Nov 28, 2015 | 8:29 PM

Maybe we
hired the wrong coach???

by whentheleveebreaks on Nov 28, 2015 | 8:45 PM

Halfway through the 2nd quarter
and AD is the only starter who has scored.

by whentheleveebreaks on Nov 28, 2015 | 8:59 PM

looking at the score at the half, i’d assume AD was in a suit.
by Dfranchise on Nov 28, 2015 | 9:10 PM

Asik, Gordon, Holiday & Anderson
Combined 0-13 from the field at the half.

by Dfranchise on Nov 28, 2015 | 9:27 PM

positive vibes
by sd3 on Nov 28, 2015 | 9:39 PM

Well on the positive side
..they only took 13 shots

by BenDerDonDat on Nov 28, 2015 | 9:43 PM

At the end of the third quarter, Jrue Holiday and Eric GOrdon have three points, zero rebounds, and 1 assist between them. Ladies and Gentlemen, your $26 million Pelicans backcourt…SMDH
by BenDerDonDat on Nov 28, 2015 | 9:55 PM

AD should be able to sue some of his teammates for non-support
He is out there busting his butt, but he is like Teddy Roosevelt leading the Boy Scouts

I’m not going to say “fire Doc”, but Doc is coaching like a guy who wants to get fired and I urge someone to prove to me otherwise.

Doc is mailing it in. He got that contract so now he’s in the “keep getting them checks mode”.

by ianbaron on Nov 25, 2015 | 9:40 PM


So hard to watch this.
I don’t think we are capable of getting even 1 single defensive stop. Worst defense in the league… Going to be a long painful season like this.

by wwshep on Nov 25, 2015 | 9:42 PM

It might be time to write the obituary for this team
“The lob city era Clippers, most famously known for losing in the playoffs in a more painful fashion than before every year until finally imploding in 2015-2016”

by Jellyfish_ on Nov 25, 2015 | 9:43 PM

Don’t see much hope
When we get embarrassed by a crap team like the Jazz on our home court…

Happy thanksgiving guys!
We are doomed!

by KingKunta660 on Nov 25, 2015 | 9:55 PM

So…
is it time to hit the panic button yet? seriously can we talk to Doc someway some how reach out to him on Twitter or something to wake his ass up dammit. I think he’s clearly lost. He was sitting on the bench towards the end of the game so lost and not know a damn thing to do. SMH. Wake up Fool

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Welcome to Loud City.

I think this game will be an interesting test.
Utah will do their best to force the Thunder to execute in the half court. The guys just need to keep trusting the system and add another building block to their development in the new schemes.
Note to Enes:
Tonight would be the perfect night to shut Booker up. :wink: Get your numbers, get the W.

NBA officials were asked about the rule book
Their response…what rule book?

by RQ on Nov 23, 2015 | 8:33 PM

If I were Quinn Snyder,
Gobert would be on the bench after that last sequence. Too busy celebrating the fact he dunked on Kanter to worry about getting back on defense. At least Russ celebrates while running back.

by LastChance on Nov 23, 2015 | 8:56 PM

Gobert is kind of an idiot
by belt on Nov 23, 2015 | 9:07 PM

Calling fouls because the player misses the shot is so bush league

Don’t need to push his luck.

by Endless Paradise on Nov 23, 2015 | 10:27 PM

And here’s your weekly Utah Jazz wrapup

November 23, 2015

standings#PlayoffPush still alive!

One. Derrick Favors, asked if an All-Star berth would mean a lot to him:
I mean, it would. You know, I’d love to make it. But I mean, you don’t know how it works out…Hopefully, my name will be in there when they announce it.

Does not getting invited to USA Basketball camp this past summer still drive you?

It does. I mean, a lot of stuff still drive me, not just that in particular, but a lot of stuff. And you know, that motivates me to come out here every day and continue to work on my game, go out there and play hard every night, go against certain guys.

Two. Joe Ingles on his wife’s medical condition and how it affects their marriage: Renae gets, Renae’s got a little disease called “I Get Way Too Hot In Bed,” and laying next to her’s like laying next to a hot water bottle that’s been overheated up.

So we were trying to sleep in [a queen-sized bed], and we couldn’t. And this opportunity came [to get a king], and I grabbed it with both hands.

Three. Derrick Favors on this moment and what Quin Snyder said:

fav-quin

“He was excited. He was happy that we won. He was, he knew I was having a tough night in the first half. In the second, I came out, played a lot better. And you know, he was just happy.”

Four. Quin Snyder on DeMar DeRozan’s dunk: Well, you know, Rudy [Gobert] has pride and doesn’t like those kinds of things to happen, but he’s also, you know, x inches away from blocking that. That’s why it’s such a spectacular play, because he’s there. You know, if no one’s there, it doesn’t look like it’s as big a deal.

But w–that was on the other guys. That was a straight blow-by. You know, I mean, we can’t expect him — he can’t have a guy coming full speed at him down the rim or down the lane.

And to his credit, you know, he’s tough mentally and he challenged the shot and he got dunked on. But our team got dunked on. Like, the other four guys, that was, they were dunked on. Rudy just happened to be under the rim, and that’s on us. We gotta stay in front.

Joe Ingles’ take: It’s probably more Gordon [Hayward]’s fault than Rodney–than Rudy’s, really. I think as we watched it a hundred times in the locker room and laughed at Rudy…[Hayward] obviously thought there was someone coming and there wasn’t, so he kind of opened up a bit…

Like Rudy said in the locker room, it’s not gonna stop him going for any more. He’s gonna keep doing it. Obviously, that’s a great thing to, mindset to have, and it definitely gives us trust that we can get blown by again and he’s still gonna come over.

Five. Dennis Lindsey on one thing he’s happy about: It’s important to know Derrick Favors has just been a rock. He’s just been steady, and we’re just tickled with him, his approach on and off the court.

And a lot of things that Derrick told us he wanted to do at an individual level that would come back to team production, and frankly, he’s done. And it’s a credit to him, the work he’s put in the last few seasons.

Six. Sad face:

didn't hear back

And Hayward is being a party pooper at home too lol:

grinch

Seven. Dennis Lindsey on Trey Burke: Trey gets a lot of credit. We gave him a good dose of truth and honesty in some of our assessments, and to the kid’s credit, he took that in and he put together a very good summer. And he’s very ambitious, and so i–when you’re that ambitious and that competitive, usually the work will follow and that’s exactly what’s happened.

And we fail to sometimes mention enough, this should be Trey’s rookie year. He’s 22, just turned 23 so this should be his first season, and in many ways, we should judge it as such.

And Lindsey on Raul Neto: We felt like he could be a good defender, which he’s been past that. He’s been excellent and it shows in his on-off per-100 possessions. The, you know, the team functions very well when he’s out there. We felt like he would be an extension of the coaching staff, really pick up our schemes.

So, even though he’s a rookie, he’s been a professional, and that shows in many ways that you guys and the fans can’t see, of just how he approaches his job. So, his teammates — Rudy, Gordon, Derrick in particular — they have very good confidence, and o–some of that is because when they’re open, they get the ball on time and on target.

So, there’s a real intangible quality. I think as we understand him and his skillset, I think his finishing will get better. He got off to a fast start with the open shooting. If he continues to make a, his fair percentage of open shots, Ra–Raul’s* gonna be moving forward, and we sure are proud to have him on top of that.

* “Ra–Haul’s…”

Eight. Love the love on the team:

tibor champ belt

Nine. Quin Snyder, asked if there’s an optimal number of 3-pointers he’d like to see the team taking: You know, I like them, and we like them. It’s really like anything. It’s training our guys to prepare for them, for one thing. To space to get them, to see them. You know, I think we value it. We’re learning to value it more…

But we gotta take ones we can make. You know, so, there’s times defenses will do a good job taking them away and you’ve gotta do some other things, but hopefully we can — for me, it just really involves spacing.

You know, if we can get spaced right, and attack, and then the next part of it is our guys — we’re really unselfish, but that doesn’t mean you always see the right play…

That’s where we have to make strides, kind of the instinctive nature of finding those shots and guys getting connected. But I wanna take as many as we can that are open, frankly. That’s the ideal.

Ten. About that big Jazz reunion in Dallas:

CHOKE JOB
by Toll Booth Willie on Nov 15, 2015 | 8:30 PM</span

And here’s your weekly Utah Jazz wrapup

November 15, 2015

One. Gordon Hayward on road trips with a kid at home: The sleep. You definitely get more sleep on road trips, but, yeah, you know, I miss her, but you know, I miss my wife and, before that, you know, you miss your family, and, professionals, so. That’s all it is.

Two. Quin Snyder on why playing time is important for Rudy Gobert: That’s why playing is so important. You know, that’s why, his growth last year started with him playing, and it’s, you know, why this road trip is so important, is that you get a chance to measure yourself, and that teaches you what to work on.

And you know, you practice it, and then you, you know, you do it in practice, and you do it in competition, and your level goes up and up. And as soon as you can do it, you know, in a competitive environment, then, you know, can you do it in pressure? So, I think there’s multiple levels of that, you know, that growth process that occurs.

Three. Derrick Favors on putting the load on his back with Rudy Gobert out in Miami: Without him out there, you know, I just took it upon myself just to, you know, just to try to set the tone early. You know, I knew I wouldn’t get that many shots tonight, but you know, I just went out there, tried to set the tone early, try to get some stops, try to get some momentum for us on the defensive end, and I just had a good night.

Four. Jeff Withey. He makes us all dyslexic.

whitey

Five. Dante Exum update, courtesy of Joe Ingles: Who knows what Dante’s doing, to be honest? He, yeah, he i–so, he’s there every morning at practice. Comes in and talks to us, and not in an inspiring way, but he’s there to talk to us, and he watches most practices and then he has his treatment…

I know if he — whoever sees him next needs to ask him to smile, ’cause he just got some new teeth that cost him a bit of money, but they’re straight now, so he’s pretty happy little 20-year-old. Apart from that, I don’t know.

I mean, he did have his family here obviously helping him at the start ’cause he couldn’t do too much, and I gave him a job to do today, which we’ll see if he can do that. He’s picking up my wife from the airport today. He’s got a big job today. If he fai–if he doesn’t pass that job, then he’s officially out of my good book.

So, Renae — well, he actually owed me. Renae picked up him and his mum and brother when they flew in from L.A. after his surgery, so — we were on the road, I think, and he asked me to pick him up and I couldn’t, so Renae picked him up, and so, he kinda owed me.

And Ingles on his wife’s travel plans: She’ll probably kind of tour herself around a little bit, ’cause she hasn’t actually visited the States too much, and she’s only really been in Salt Lake, so she needs to get out and experience America a little bit more.

Six. This week’s edition of…

guess that ass

Seven. Quin Snyder, asked to comment on the Jazz’s “losing streak” after the loss in Orlando: I can’t even go h–go there on a losing streak when, you know, we’ve played the last couple games without Rudy. We lost to Cleveland in, you know, a one-possession game. And we lost to Miami in a one-possession game, and it’s a losing streak for sure.

We lost tonight on a back-to-back without two guys in Fav — I mean, I’m just not gonna be despondent about these games. I just, I won’t do it. You know, and I, that doesn’t mean I don’t wanna win more than anyone, but to characterize these last three games — and it’s correctly characterized as a losing streak, absolutely. That’s what it is. We’ve lost.

But that implies some sort of, you know, the sky’s falling, woe is me. And I’m not for feeling sorry for ourselves, and going in that direction.

We’ve played good basketball, and we didn’t tonight…If we don’t win [against Atlanta], our losing streak extends, but I don’t wanna look at it that way. You know, I wanna look at it like a team that’s focused on getting better and we gotta keep doing that, and sometimes if we have to lose to do that, that’s painful, but hopefully it can result in us being better.

Eight. Quin Snyder then:

young pup quin

Quin Snyder now:

scary-quin

Nine. Last week, we had a quote from Deron Williams perhaps showing some newfound self-awareness. This week, we have Carlos Boozer, who starts out by telling a fantastic Jerry Sloan story (H/T @5kl):

It’s 2010. I’m with the Jazz. We’re at a practice facility in Los Angeles — a day away from playing Kobe, Pau and the Lakers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals. They’re the No. 1 seed, we’re the No. 5 seed. It’s our last team meeting before the series starts.

Coach Sloan takes the floor. He paces a bit, and stares at us — the whole team, up and down. Real slowly. He takes his time to look each one of us in the eye.

And then he speaks.

“Look. We’re afterthoughts in this series … We’re big underdogs … We’re on the road … I don’t care. We need to f***ing beat these guys.”

And then he keeps going.

“If my knee was still good, I’m telling you, I’d go out there and play tomorrow. No … No … Honestly, if my knee was still good, I’d go out there and fight somebody tomorrow. Hell, if my knee was still good, I’d go out there and fight somebody right now. You know what? I’m serious. I’ll go out there and fight the Lakers.
“I’ll go out and fight the Lakers right now!”

For about a beat — a beat and a half — you can feel everyone in the room just sort of … processing what Coach had said. You see everyone looking around … looking around … not sure what to make of it. Is he joking? Is he being “rah rah”? Or is he for real? It’s like, wait — is Coach about to try to fight Luke Walton? It’s one of those, Well, that escalated quickly moments.

And like I said: This is 2010. Coach Sloan is 68 years old. Sixty-eight! And he’s out here, telling us, dead — listen: dead — seriously, that he would lace’em up and go to battle with us if he could. And he’s got us believing that he really, truly would — that he wants this badly enough, and that we should too. He’s not just spouting some “do or die” nonsense that he knows we’ve all heard a million times. He’s showing us.

I’m telling you: After Coach’s speech, that room went from “focused” to focused. We were a little overmatched in the series — 2010 was a championship-winning Lakers team — and we ended up on the losing end of it. But man were we focused, and man did we give them a run, and man did we fight like hell.

It’s five years later now, but I still think about that speech, and tell guys about it any chance I get.

It was a moment. …

Age has a way of revealing new things to you. Back in 2010, I thought it was funny that Coach Sloan was about to go throw down with the Lakers. I sort of figured that it was just, you know, “part of the act” — a really well done motivational speech. But now? Now I know.

Dude was serious.

And I’m not Coach Sloan’s age … but I’m starting to understand how he felt. You get a little older — you play this game for long enough — and you realize that so much of what you worried about earlier in your career doesn’t matter. You realize that it really all just boils down to a few key moments.

And then, finally, you realize something about moments: You’re only handed so many. (The Player’s Tribune)

Ten. Quin Snyder, Unintentional Dirty Quote Machine: Everyone wants to be long, you know? It’s just a question of, you know, can you be? (H/T @DJJazzyJody)

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Orlando Pinstriped Post.

I think this is going to be another hotly contested game
I’d guess Jazz by 3 but I’m hoping the Magic pull it out somehow

by zac.roberts. on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:07 PM

we should destroy them
by necksnappa on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:16 PM

Jazz are favored to win..
by zac.roberts. on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:17 PM

I don’t care its a very winnable game.
by necksnappa on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:18 PM

Great ball movement thus far.
by Dunkmachine1313 on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:19 PM

We’re killing it right now!
Great team play!!

by finals or bust on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:22 PM

This came out of nowhere wow
by zac.roberts. on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:31 PM

Jazz are on pace to have 32 TOs!
by blue-blood on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:34 PM

Let’s go for 33
that’s what i’d tell them if i were coaching

by outbreak on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:35 PM

Unbelievable quarter!
by Dunkmachine1313 on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:35 PM

WOW, this is…
amazing

by blue-blood on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:38 PM

by zac.roberts. on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:47 PM

I swear if they cut this under 10 I’m gonna puke
by blue-blood on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:48 PM

Quin Snyder looks like he just walked out of a cocaine party on wall street….
by outbreak on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:55 PM

You deserve this rec.
by 4QB on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:57 PM

I concur lol
by finals or bust on Nov 13, 2015 | 7:59 PM

I don’t get it, why does Burke look so incredible every time he plays Orlando? Did the Magic promise to draft him at #2 several years back or something?
by HeyRiles on Nov 13, 2015 | 8:00 PM

The vein in Skiles forehead is going to burst during halftime
by finals or bust on Nov 13, 2015 | 8:03 PM

Dear lord just let this quarter end already!
by blue-blood on Nov 13, 2015 | 8:03 PM


Snyder really looks like the kind of guy to give you tips on where to get good hookers and blow in any NBA city.
by outbreak on Nov 13, 2015 | 8:31 PM

Is Utah’s whole defensive strategy to foul people?
by 4QB on Nov 13, 2015 | 8:36 PM

Pretty sure their whole defensive strategy is sitting out tonight.
by three.threeseconds on Nov 13, 2015 | 8:38 PM

The Jazz are doing their very best to lose this game
by blue-blood on Nov 13, 2015 | 8:44 PM

Just realised Gordon Haywards been kept quiet nearly this whole game
good job shutting him out on defence.

by outbreak on Nov 13, 2015 | 9:10 PM

Who is Joe Ingles?
by 4QB on Nov 13, 2015 | 9:17 PM

A man who likes VB and Vegemite.
by outbreak on Nov 13, 2015 | 9:17 PM

WE’RE 500 AGAIN FOR THE 1ST TIME SINCE 4-EVER!!!
by blue-blood on Nov 13, 2015 | 9:17 PM

Magic won the game.
Quin Snyder with the coke out Goldman Sachs looks wins the thread. BTW I would totally look like him if I had the money

by gatrmf on Nov 13, 2015 | 9:23 PM

I need to track down his phone number for when I make a trip to the states, a weekend with him would be epic

Nice Start !!
by bibbit on Nov 12, 2015 | 7:45 PM

blistering start
by crosshanger on Nov 12, 2015 | 7:47 PM

I told you! I TOLD YOU ALL
Of course it’s blind homerism, but still

by jnicho20 on Nov 12, 2015 | 7:58 PM

LOL, Hayward getting the star treatment.
by #ThrowUpTheX on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:04 PM

Jazz with 12free throws in first :O
by Jan Dazek on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:10 PM

Bull
by #ThrowUpTheX on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:28 PM

Its been happening the whole game
We start pulling away and then Utah starts getting free throws

by mike.slick.921 on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:29 PM

I’m not sure about some of these calls tonight
by bibbit on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:29 PM

Ticky tack or nonexistent, lol
It’s bad tonight.

by #ThrowUpTheX on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:33 PM

Favors is having himself a game huh
Wish Bosh would dunk the ball but i know thats not the strong part of his game

by IceColdChiefs on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:37 PM

We started great, should them crush, and then..but these refs, like the game has to be interesting….
by Jan Dazek on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:40 PM

Glad I’m not the only one seeing this.
Blind refs tonight.

by #ThrowUpTheX on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:42 PM

man these refs are trash
by IceColdChiefs on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:56 PM

You can say that again.
by #ThrowUpTheX on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:58 PM

yeah fuck these refs
Hayward just threw it out of bounds and Jazz got the ball

by mike.slick.921 on Nov 12, 2015 | 8:59 PM

Whiteside’s afraid of that whistle. Can’t blame him tonight.
by bibbit on Nov 12, 2015 | 9:06 PM

Yeah, he’s getting screwed tonight.
by #ThrowUpTheX on Nov 12, 2015 | 9:09 PM

We were up 10, now we’re behind. Refs that bad?
by Heliumiami on Nov 12, 2015 | 9:10 PM

Yes, they’re horrible.
But we’re not playing all that well to begin with.

by #ThrowUpTheX on Nov 12, 2015 | 9:15 PM

These refs really wants jazz to win
by Jan Dazek on Nov 12, 2015 | 9:23 PM

yea they do this is ridiculous
by IceColdChiefs on Nov 12, 2015 | 9:24 PM

these refs better be suspended for a couple games
by IceColdChiefs on Nov 12, 2015 | 9:34 PM

FAvors single-handedly…
keeping Utah in the game. Take away FAvor’s production, and Utah as a team is shooting just 32%! (16-50)

by Hvz5x on Nov 12, 2015 | 9:38 PM

darnnnnnn
streak ends at 4, 90 points or less …oh well

by Hvz5x on Nov 12, 2015 | 10:03 PM

Jazz playing decent this year
I’ll take the win

by johnbsu on Nov 12, 2015 | 10:05 PM

Up they r underrated….. Could be in the POs in the West….
