In the 17 minutes Joakim Noah was on the bench last night. The Jazz outscored the Bulls by 17 points. Top 5 player in the NBA
Of course... Jazz ORtg with Burke/Favors/Kanter/whoever: 109.5. Jazz ORtg with Booker/Exum/Gobert: 99.5.
Jazz DRtg with Burke + Favors + Kanter + any 2 players: 110.7. Jazz DRtg with Booker + Exum + Gobert + any 2 players: 97.1
Bulls-Jazz is one of those “If I have to choose between announcing crews, I choose the mute button” games.
Just finished Jazz-Bulls. Jimmy Butler just counting $ at this point. Two great looks in last 18 seconds for Utah. Jazz are getting there
Even though Jazz lost, what a fun comeback to watch
This is nuts. Good luck makes sense out of the Jazz quarter by quarter stats http://t.co/ndILcfuzxi
Records for their last 40 games, going back to last season: Philadelphia 4-36, Jazz 9-31, Detroit 9-31, L.A. Lakers 11-29.
Third consecutive loss for the Jazz. They travel to OKC on Wednesday
Gordon Hayward misses a three at the buzzer, and the Jazz fall short tonight, 97-95 to the Bulls
Hayward gets a clean-ish look, but he's falling right to left and the shot is no good. Jazz lose this one 97-95.
Gasol splits a pair...Bulls 97-95 2.9 sec left Jazz ball.
Burke and Snell both mistimed the jump, but the Bulls win out. Gasol gets two free throws and he splits them. Timeout Jazz w/ 2.6 to go.
My 10-year-old after the Bulls take a one-point lead over he Jazz: "This is too intense." It's fun watching this with him.
We've seen a Hayward buzzer-beater and a Burke buzzer-beater this year. Both of those with the game tied, though. Jazz down w/ 18 sec. left.
Jazz will probably run pick and roll with Trey Burke as the initiator. Or do they put the ball in Gordon's hands?
Dunleavy with the put back Bulls 96-95 Jazz ball 18sec left
Maybe Jazz should inbound to Hayward, who could drive into the lane, push Butler aside with his left hand and then make a jumper.
Burks blocks Butler's layup, but it bounces right into Dunleavy for an easy bucket. Bulls up 96-95. Jazz ball with 18.0 on the clock.
Mike Dunleavy with the lay-in and the Bulls lead the Jazz 96-95 with 18 seconds remaining
Jazz take their biggest lead of four with 3:30 to go. The altitude, yeah, tha'ts it, the altitude. And all the streets are named Temple.
Jazz have clawed all the way back. Outscored Bulls 46-36 in the paint. Out-rebounded Bulls 37-31. Lead by 4 with 3:30 left.
Bad news: Hayward gets a wide-open look for 3 and can't hit it. He's 2-for-10 tonight. Good news: Jazz are staying competitive without him.
Jazz lead 91-87
Trey Burke now has 18 points and 10 assists. Jazz up 91-87 with 3:30 remaining
Jazz take a 88-87 lead
Jazz down 87-84 with 5:37 remaining
Watching Jazz and Harpring calls Gobert "The Stifle Tower!" My son: "Makes sense. He's from France." You're welcome for the nickname, Matt.
End of 3: Bulls 78, Jazz 77. A 12-point quarter from Trey Burke fuels the rally. Jazz went 15-of-21 shooting.
Trey Burke with a nice 2-for-1 at the end of the third quarter. Jazz get six points from the possessions on his two 3-pointers.
Jazz scored 37 points in the third...22 for the Bulls
Trey Burke has COMPLETELY taken over this third quarter...12 of his 16 points in the period, Jazz down 78-77 with 12 minutes remaining
Jazz have cut a 21 point lead to 1. Rose/Gasol/Butler are going to need to wrap this one up in the 4th quarter.
And Ingles hits a three....73-72 now....Jazz down just one
Jazz within 73-69 with 1:53 remaining in the third quarter
And Trey Burke hits a jumper as he's fouled. Jazz starting point guard has had a wonderful third quarter, running the pick and roll
Jazz down 73-66 with 2:20 remaining in the third quarter
Kanter hits a long 2 from the corner & the Jazz are back within 9, 62-53.
Jazz on a nice run, down 60-49 with 8:47 remaining in the third quarter
