EMPTYING THE NOGGIN - weareutahjazz.com/lockedonjazz/?… - 29 turnovers lead to Jazz loss to Lakers fb.me/77oVUX4Wc

Brad Rock

Me on deadline. http://t.co/IF74n1EcEX

Matt Harpring

Still impressed w jazz in loss to Lakers. The only question is how bad the jazz would have beaten the lakers if main players played more

Aaron Falk

With Hayward & Favors watching from the bench, the Jazz blow a big lead & lose in L.A. sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsja…

Jody Genessy

Already impressing: Utah Jazz rookie Dante Exum has continued to show his potential this preseason | Deseret News po.st/mCS51b

Jody Genessy

The Jazz need to play the Lakers more often just so I can increase how many times I retweet @Bill Oram.

Jody Genessy

Janet Jackson will be signed. RT @SerenaWinters: Kobe on team's identity: "We're going to be smashmouth basketball. It's going to be nasty."

Brad Rock

Thinking: They need to find more parking at Lonestar Taqueria or I'm going to stop going there....I mean it...I'm serious...I....ok, lying.

Tony Jones

Lakers 98, Jazz 91....Last week of preseason is upon us

Aaron Falk

Final: Lakers 98, Jazz 91. Snyder sits Burke for the game; Favors & Hayward for the second half. Kobe scores 26. Burks has 21p/6r/2a.

Brad Rock

Why is it that whenever I say Gobert, I suddenly think I can speak French? #JeanLucPicard

Tony Jones

Since returning to the game and having a bad third quarter, Dante Exum has three assists in four possessions

Tony Jones

Let's see if Exum can close out. Nice pass to Kanter there for a lay up

David Locke

End of 3 quarter - Jazz 72 Lakers 69 - Burks 15-5; Kanter 12-6; Clark 9 pts - Kobe 21 on 7/19 and Boozer 19-9 #UTAatLAL

Aaron Falk

End of 3: Jazz 72, Lakers 69.

Tony Jones

What a move by Hood there

Aaron Falk

In the first half, the Jazz committed 10 turnovers, leading to seven points. Those numbers are up to 21 and 25 now.

Jody Genessy

Novak from Jimmer range.

Tony Jones

Harpring is right. That turnover on Enes. Has to keep Boozer off his back

Tony Jones

I think this third quarter is showing how potentially good Hayward/Favors have become. Was a laugher with those two on the floor

Tony Jones

Booze is working Kanter in the third quarter

Aaron Falk

Hayward and Favors have played just 12 minutes tonight. Doesn't look like they'll be coming back either.

Aaron Falk

Remember when the Jazz had a 22-point lead? Lakers have come all the way back. Wesley Johnson just tied it at 57.

Jody Genessy

Never mind about my earlier tweets. THE LAKERS ARE FOR REAL!!!! SHOWTIME IS BACK!!!!

Tony Jones

Enes Kanter just can't let Boozer walk around him like that

Tony Jones

Jazz offense has completely gone into the toilet without Hayward/Burke/Favors out there. Need to generate good looks

Steve Luhm

Jazz formula for making the playoffs? Play the Lakers 30 times.

David Locke

Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward done for the night #UTAatLAL

Tony Jones

Going into tonight I trailed by 5 in my fantasy league with my opponent having one left. That one? Demaryious Thomas. I'm finished here

David Locke

I call Jazz Coach Antonio Lang "Val" because Valedictorian is too long. Lang was the Valedictorian of his high school class

Jody Genessy

Jazz ambassador Mehmet Okur just came up and shook my hand. "Hey buddy. Have you been saying good things about me?" Now I am: He's the best.

David Locke

Last 10 quarters Lakers have been outscored by 90 points. Missing Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Nick Young, Ryan Kelly and Magic Johnson & crew

Aaron Falk

Halftime: Jazz 54, Lakers 38. Burks has 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting. Kobe's up to 15 on 5-of-15.

Jody Genessy

Jazz lead Lakers 54-38 at halftime.

Jody Genessy

Flex and point, Boozer! Flex and point.

Jody Genessy

Oh my goodness. Alec Burks goes behind the back to lose Kobe Bryant and then splits a couple of Laker bigs for a layup while getting fouled.

Tony Jones

Did anyone just see what Burks just did to Kobe Bryant?

Aaron Falk

A stoppage in play, with L.A. down 45-27. Dude in the stand fills the awkward silence: "Bring on the Laker girls."

David Locke

The urgency of Quin Sndyer - TO goes from :20 to full but he still huddles the team first to correct where defense broke down on lst ply

Tony Jones

Great pass by Kobe there

Aaron Falk

Kobe and Exum smiling and chatting before the inbounds. Then Bryant takes it right at the rookie, who picks up a foul.

David Locke

Rudy Gobert with 3 blocks on last 4 possessions. Only shot he didn't block was Kobe Bryant's 33 footer. #UTAatLAL

David Locke

Gobert 11 of 17 from the line in pre-season #UTAatLAL

Aaron Falk

Nice stretch for Ian Clark. Hits a runner in the lane. Plays some D. Finds Dahntay Jones with a pass for an easy bucket. Jazz up 38-22.

David Locke

Jazz 15 field goals 10 assists - Lakers 8 field goals and 1 assist #UTAatLAL

Jody Genessy

The Lakers have become the Chivas USA of Los Angeles sports.

Jody Genessy

Rodney Hood just showed two good things — he skied to catch a bad pass from Jeremy Evans and then made a nice drive to get free throws.

David Locke

The opening hour of Jazz training camp was on transition defense - Lakers get 0 fast break points in first quarter. #UTAatLAL

David Locke

Jazz lead it 32-20 after 1 - Hayward with 8-2-3. Jazz shoot 12/18 with 3 three pointers - 75% efg . Kobe 2/7 with 2 turns #UTAatLAL

Tony Jones

Burks and Hayward look dynamic together on the wings

Aaron Falk

End of 1: Jazz 32, Lakers 20. Hayward has 8p/3a/2r to lead Utah. Burks w/ 6p/3r. Kobe has six points on 2-of-7 shooting.

Aaron Falk

Bad pass by Hayward and, thankfully, quick hands by the guy with cane.

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward has dominated this first quarter in every facet. Impressive to watch

Tony Jones

Jazz up 30-17 on the Lakers

Jody Genessy

Quick-trigger Rodney Hood. 3. Splash.

Tony Jones

heck of a sequence for Hayward. Snaps the defensive rebound, gets team into offense and great pass to Clark for open three

Aaron Falk

5-to-1, per Bovada. RT @Bill Oram All about that bass?

Aaron Falk

"Shake It Off" was my preseason favorite to replace "Happy" in NBA arenas this year.

Aaron Falk

Booker's out, so early minutes tonight for Jeremy Evans, who hasn't seen much time at all this preseason. Checking in at the 3:08 mark.

Tony Jones

Jeremy Evans with some early minutes in place of Trevor Booker

Aaron Falk

Burks blows by Boozer and finishes the reverse layup. He has six points in his return. Jazz up 16-11.

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward waited too long to dish off to Alec Burks on that 2-on-1 fast break. Jazz are off and running tonight.

David Locke

Utah Jazz Basketball is underway - LISTEN LIVE nba.com/broadband/alp_…

Tony Jones

Alec Burks reminds me of a young Ron Harper in the open floor. Not Bulls/Lakers Harper. Cleveland Cavs Harper

Jody Genessy

I like how Alec Burks got the ball in the open court and just attacked Kobe Bryant on that fast break.

Jody Genessy

Nice cross-over move followed by a floater by Dante Exum.

Jody Genessy

Anybody else excited to see Carlos Boozer point to his flexed bicep tonight?

Jody Genessy

ICYMI, the Jazz are starting Dante Exum, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors. Trey Burke is getting a rest.

Aaron Falk

Big time celeb at Staples tonight. Professional angler Todd Kline just delivered the game ball for this one. Sing it, Randy Newman.

Tony Jones

Dante Exum starting for Trey Burke, who is getting the night off against the Lakers

Aaron Falk

He out. RT @jared123j What about Booker? He out?

David Locke

Fast break points allowed by the Jazz in the pre-season by game -- 10,8,7,8 and 6. Average below 7.8. Last year 15.5 (27th in NBA)

David Locke

Dante Exum starts as Trey Burke starts tonight. Think tonight will be a chance for the back end of roster to show themselves tonight

David Locke

Very good conversation with @Brittonhoops and Spencer Nelson right now on @1280sports getting ready for Jazz v. Lakers #UTAatLAL

David Locke

Dante Exum starts tonight for the Utah Jazz with Trey Burke resting

Aaron Falk

Dante Exum will start tonight. Trey Burke gets the night off to rest.

Aaron Falk

Alec Burks will indeed play tonight, Snyder says. Has missed three straight games with a shoulder injury.

Jody Genessy

Famous people I've seen in the Staples Center press dining room: Jack Cooley, Steve Brown, The Real @JazzGameNight, several Laker Girls.

David Locke

Storylines out of Byron Scott. We need more time, we are even till Kobe goes out, Kobe is as good as ever

Aaron Falk

Expect a few more Kobe minutes tonight. Lakers want to increase PT until he's at his regular-season target the last two preseason games.

Jonathan Rinehart

Touching story by @matthew_piper : sltrib.com/sltrib/sports/… Best wishes to Steve Mohlman and his family. (H/t @Steve Luhm )

David Locke

Lakers also without Steve Nash so Lakers point guard tonight is Ronnie Price

Aaron Falk

Nash, Lin, and Kelly won't play tonight. Lakers missing six guys in total.

David Locke

No Jeremy Lin for the Lakers tonight

Tony Jones

Dez is unguardable right now.....I shudder to think what he will do to my secondary next week smh

Steve Luhm

Per web sites: BYU opens as 6-point underdog at Boise, Utah State an 18-point favorite over UNLV, Utah is pick 'em vs. USC.

Steve Luhm

Wonder if Tallahassee P.D. had an outbreak of "blue flu" this morning. You know, after crazy party celebrating Florida State win.

Tony Jones

Dear Fox sports: Pitbull is not a rapper. I don't know what he actually is. I just know he ain't a rapper.

David Locke

5 with pre-season better than projected Utah (+13.2 #2) Phoenix (11.9 #3) New Orleans (+11.5 #4) Boston (5.7 #9) Orlando (4.5 #11)

David Locke

The other 4 offenses in pre-season top 10 finished 13,14,20 and 28 in regular season offense.

David Locke

6 of the top 10 offenses in last year's pre-season were also top 10 offense in the regular season
