Two teams Jazz have played finshed last year 3rd and 4th offensively last year. Both may better this year
Playing catchup in a blowout, the Jazz tied the franchise record w/ 35 attempts from 3. Same number they took last time in Dallas (2/7/14).
Through two games, Jazz are shooting 32% on three-pointers. As I said originally, they're not built to take 35 in a game right now and win.
Jazz were 2-for-8 on three-pointers in the first quarter, when they fell behind by 16. So, yeah, fire away.
Jazz are not built to take 35 three-point shots. Until they find 4-5 reliable shooters, it's a recipe for blow-out losses.
The vocal Dallas fan behind press row yelled at the Jazz, "Go back to the Wasatch Front!" Utah will with its second loss, 120-102 to Dallas.
That's a wrap in Dallas. No birthday victory for Quin Snyder. Jazz fall to the Mavericks 120-102, dropping to 0-2 on the season.
The Utah Jazz have tied a franchise record with 35 3-point attempts. The last time they shot that many was on Feb. 7, also in Dallas.
The Jazz are 11-for-31 from 3-point territory.
End of 3: Mavs 93, Jazz 73.
The Jazz have competed defensively in the third quarter. That's half the battle. And the offense has come
Utah back within 20, at 78-58. Jazz already up to 24 attempts from 3 with 6:39 left to go in the third. Took 18 of them last night.
Good run by the Jazz....deficit down to 20 now

Mavs 69, Jazz 44 at the half. Four Mavs (Dirk, Monta, Chandler and Chandler) already in double digits.
Jazz are down 25 at halftime. But they are playing back-to back. It's also their second game in 190 days.
Jazz rallied to pull within 25 of the Mavericks at halftime.
Jazz need to send their game-ops crew to Dallas. Mavs entertainment is top-notch. Nowitzki, Parsons and Ellis just did a hilarious rap.
It's just the Jazz -- and Utah's on the butt end of a back-to-back -- but this is an offensive clinic by the Mavs. Mavs 65, Jazz 35, 2:49 2Q
Embarrassing first half for the Jazz. No other way around it
The Jazz are young and on a back to back. The Mavs are at home and miffed about Tuesday. Dallas shooting
Terrific inbounds play by the Jazz. Exum curls around and gets a dunk after a nice entry pass from Hayward.
Not sure why this is but Gobert checked in at 3:03 in 1st quarter and checked out at 9:00 of 2nd. Jazz scored 2 pts in that stretch
The Down Under Duo — Dante Exum and Joe Ingles — is on the court together for the Utah Jazz.
Former Jazz man Devin Harris hits a pair of free throws. Mavs up 43-22. So, guys, about Whataburger ...
Dunkin' Donuts missing great opportunity by not being a corporate sponsor of Jazz defense.
Mavs 36, Jazz 20 after 1Q. Mavs go 16-of-25 from floor despite a 2-of-8 quarter for Chandler Parsons. Lots of lobs.
To say this is an awful defensive first quarter for the Jazz is a diss to awful defensive first quarters everywhere
Jazz trail the Mavs 36-20 after the first quarter.
End of 1: Mavs 36, Jazz 20.
