Andy Larsen: Enes Kanter ripped the Jazz org in his interview today. He pretended to hold back, but that wasn't a holding back. "I love it. It's a team that I've never experienced before. I actually like playing basketball there. I think the difference is I like playing basketball there. I think that's the most important thing. I never liked playing basketball before in my NBA career. It's the first time that I felt like playing basketball. It wasn't just a one game, two game frustration, it was a three and a half year frustration. I'm happy for both sides." Twitter @andyblarsen

David Locke: The Utah Jazz have waived Ian Clark. Waiving Clark makes a lot of roster mangement sense. Better to have non-guarnteed contract on books than expiring. More flexibility Twitter @Lockedonsports

Before each game his mother texts him the message, “Remember Who you play for.” "It helps remind myself why I am doing this. I am playing for the glory of God,” Hayward said. “It makes life easier. It takes a lot of pressure off of you. My inspiration first and foremost always has to be God. I play every game for Him and after that my inspiration is my family.” The Alabama Baptist

Favors, for one, did not want to be any part of a tanking bunch, and he knew it would be up to those who were designated to lead the team to ensure that did not happen. New coach Quin Snyder put much on Favors' shoulders to begin the year. “I put myself in there,” Favors said. “I have been in the league for five years now, so coaches were adamant that they would be looking to me to help lead the team.” It has paid off. In fact, much of what the Jazz have been doing in the last couple of years is paying off now. After a brutal start to the year that saw them endure a nine-game losing streak and a 6-19 record, Utah has been among the best teams in the league in the last six weeks. Dating back to February 7 they have, amazingly, gone 14-4 and offered a very encouraging glimpse at the future to their fan base. Sporting News
