I'm sure Jazz fans will be excited that Mark Jackson and his Warriors will be in town for Jerry Sloan's banner-raising ceremony on Jan. 31.
Fun news: Hall of Fame coach Jerry Sloan to be honored by the Utah Jazz with a banner-raising ceremony on Jan. 31, according to sources.
Jazz offensive rating with Burke and Hayward on floor together is 105.8. With Hayward no Burke it is 92.9. With Burke no Hayward it is 99.6
Derrick Favors last two games have been against Dwight Howard and Roy Hibbert - averaging 18 pts 13 rebs - tonight LaMarcus Aldridge
Nat Borchers said in Norway they had to heat the Gatorade so it didn't freeze during matches. http://t.co/JI3713puz0
Madison Memorial senior Wes Matthews wowed Milwaukee Vincent frosh Diante Garrett: “He just took over for real. He had dunks, 3s, all that.”
Jazz PG Diante Garrett remembers watching Blazers SG Wesley Matthews when their two Milwaukee high schools played back in the day.
Allez un ptit nanterre- barca avant la sieste
With Marvin Williams out again, Enes Kanter will start tonight against Portland.
KC keeper Jimmy Nielsen a funny guy. He said, "Time is not my friend" when it comes to retirement. http://t.co/dj8GyuhFqv
RSL game will be unspeakably cold. Colder than Laramie,even http://t.co/pgCthJCkYn
I imagine ESPN is working diligently to set up a Washington-Boise State bowl game.
Rusty French, sorry. "Jimmer ne joue toujours pas au Canada!" translates to "Jimmer still isn't playing in Canada" not "Jimmer for 3! Win!!"
Jimmer grew up about two hours away from the Canadian border in Glens Falls, NY, so the trade would totally make sense.
Question is, when will Deron Williams throw a high fastball at Jason Kidd during a game?
If you don't believe the Utah Jazz are tanking this season, their 104-88 loss to the Brooklyn Nets begs to differ.
I believe the scientific name for the unit of time between then and now is a Burke.
Remember when the Nets destroyed the Jazz, though?
Jason Kreis says it could be last game with RSL, on Saturday.
Derrick Favors has taken exactly one 3-point attempt this year, and it was blocked by Taj Gibson.
How daunting is it for the 4-16 Jazz to play at 16-3 Portland on Friday? Corbin: "It's very daunting. They’re actually playing very well."
Favors laughed about his NBA 3-point shooting. "I don’t know what happened. I came into the league & I can’t shoot no more for some reason"
Favors is 0-6 in his NBA career from beyond 3-point line. He claims to have been a 40 percent 3-point shooter at South Atlanta High School.
Can Derrick Favors be a Marvin Williams-like stretch four? “Last time I hit a 3 in a game, that might have been in high school.”
Best way to describe LaMarcus Aldridge last night was Dirk Nowitzki in his MVP year
Credit to Portland felt like they got a huge percentage of the 50-50 balls
Just finished Port v. OKC. LaMarcus Aldridge was unreal. Hit everything. Step backs, catch and shoot from 16, back to basket. Awesome
Blazers bench unit is Mo Williams, Dorrell Wright, T Robinson, Joel Freeland and Damian Lillard back in as SG. Whose 2nd unit is better?
How many starting 5's in West are better than Lillard, Mathews, Batum, Aldridge and Lopez?
Watching Blazers v. OKC trying to figure out how good the Blazers are. #22 ranked defense is concerning but answer the next 2 questions.
With under a minute left in quater teams are all pulling out into a 1-4 set to run clock. Is this smart basketball?
Marvin Williams (foot) won't play at Portland. Coach Ty Corbin says injury just needs to "calm down." Not worried it's a long-term deal.
Marvin Williams (heel) won't travel to Portland. Jeremy Evans is practicing today after being out with the flu.
Jeremy Evans probable for tomorrow. Williams is out against Portland.
Watching all 18 shots by Derrick Favors and then Tip Off will follow
That last rewtweet of @pacersdmb was from 9 minutes ago they are still driving to San Antonio
This Jazz team has become lots of fun - only 3 more home games before x-mas 7th v. Sac; 9th v. Port and 14th v. SA get your tix
George said the altitude bothered him, too: "It was so hard to find my wind. My chest was burning."
Hibbert: "We started slow. I'm going to be honest, the altitude because of my asthma kind of kicked me in the rear to begin with."
"It was the small things tonight," Trey Burke said. "… We did a good job, we just didn't do a great job."
Pacers give fans of small-market, cold-weather teams hope in today's NBA. Easy to pull for them.
Vogel said he "challenged" George to take over the game. Mission accomplished.
Paul George only 19 on 7-for-20 shooting, but he scored nine points in the final 10 minutes.
Indiana coach Frank Vogel on 95-86 victory over Utah: "Not perfect but we're happy to get out of here with a win."
62 games left, it will get better
Jazz offensive rating was 101.9 tonight against a team that allows 90.7. This was a good offensive night against leagues best defense
Hayward: "We gave ourselves an opportunity. We just didn’t close it out. They’re a solid team. Hopefully, we can learn from this one."
Gordon Hayward said he won't take calls from Indiana after loss to Pacers. "I probably already have text messages. I’ll just ignore those."
ADVANCED STATS - Jazz v. Pacers by the Haf and the Game- Jazz offense 101.9 v. Pacers who allow 90.7 http://t.co/kYWIvHguRc
ADVANCED STATS - Jazz v. Pacers by the quarter http://t.co/A5pbuspaFo
Final: Pacers 95, Jazz 86. Favors with 22 and 14. Kanter with 20 and 10. Trey Burke 13 points, 9 assists. Hayward shoots 3 of 14.
The winning streak is over. Jazz fall to 4-16 with 95-86 loss to the Pacers.
Hayward hits the technical free throw. Jazz with the ball, trailing 88-81 with 2:50 left.
Jazz have only scored nine points in the first 8-1/2 minutes of the fourth quarter. Pacers lead 89-76.
One thing Trey Burke must stop doing: reacting with obvious frustration when a teammate doesn't finish/makes a mistake.
Paul George with the steal and a dunk. Hayward answers with a 3. Jazz down 79-76, 6:20 left to go.
Paul George with a sneaky steal-and-slam followed by a Gordon Hayward 3-pointer. Let's get this match-up going.
Jazz lead the game 63-62 when Derrick Favors picked up his 4th foul. Favors re-enters Jazz trail 75-69
Oh, wow. Paul George with a burst to the bucket for a dunk.
Kid w/ blonde mohawk who won the dribbling/layup contest during timeout was wearing a custom Jazz jersey #85 that read T-MONEY on back.
End of 3: Pacers 68, Jazz 67.
Tough call sends Favors to the bench with fourth foul. Indiana scores 7 straight points: 68-63.
To rub it in my face that I'm missing my daughter's first dance recital, Jazz put a young girl in the Dance Cam contest. A weird dude won.
Paul George is 0-for-6 from 3-point range tonight. No wonder the Utah Jazz passed on him in the 2010 draft.
Andris Biedrins sighting.
Favors now with 17 points and 10 boards. I believe that's double-double No. 8 on the year.
