HoopsHype Patrick Christopher rumors
The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has waived guard/forward Patrick Christopher. Following the move, the Jazz roster now stands at 14 players. NBA.com
When he entered the game Saturday night against the Philadelphia 76ers, Christopher was surprised by his lack of nerves. "I ran to the table as fast as I could," he said. "There’s really no thinking from there. Just get out there, try to play hard and react." He logged six minutes of action, recording a steal and missing his only attempt from the field. Afterward, it was an open shot the guard didn’t take that drew criticism from Jazz coach Quin Snyder. "On that possession, I didn’t know if it was a bad shot," Christopher said. "I kicked it. Then I got it back and drove and made a pass. But I know now." Salt Lake Tribune
