HoopsHype Utah Jazz twitter
Jazz forward Joe Ingles on his relationship with fellow Aussie Dante Exum: "I saved him from his mom driving him to practice."
At one point, someone (an Aggie assistant?) tried to step between TV camera and Wells/Caragher.
Odd, Lengthy post-game chat between Utah State coach Matt Wells and San Jose's Ron Caragher. Didn't look all that friendly.
Good night from Oakland. Always an honor and pleasure to bring the action to Jazz fans even on tough nights. Back at it tomorrow at ESA
Blowout Friday night in the NBA - Feels like more blowouts than in past years. Variance of the 3 ball?
Jazz have made this so interesting it looks like half the fans have left and the other half are texting.
One Jazz player had a great night. Toure' Murry's crazy line playing PG in an Idaho win: 15 pts, 10 assts, 6 rebounds, 6 steals, 27 minutes.
This game is so out of hand Brandon Rush has entered for the Warriors.
Could get 12 minutes of Dante in the 4th quarter.
As bad as this loss is for the Jazz, nobody truly believed they were gonna beat GS on the road. Have to focus on NO and CHI on Sat and Mon
Jazz down 74-48...If I were Quin, I'd just sit my starters...Save it for tomorrow night
Warriors almost exclusively putting Trey and Enes in pick and rolls defensively
Gordon Hayward playing with force early in the third quarter
Jazz showing fight so far to begin the second half
Andrew Bogut is so skilled lol
Jazz have scored seven points in the first two minutes of the second half.....good start offensively
Brightsides to tonight: With the outcome no longer in doubt, I can get crackin on my game story, which has to be sent by the buzzer
Brightsides to tonight: The Jazz should have FREEESSSSHHHH legs tomorrow against the New Orleans Pelicans
Brightsides on the floor for the Jazz.....Dante Exum played well...Rudy Gobert played well. That's about it
Brightsides to tonight: I'm listening to Biggie on my iTunes playlist "long kiss goodnight" to be exact
That last tweet is my impersonation of Mark Twain, if he were into sports journalism
And there endeth a nightmarish first half for the Jazz, who trail Golden State 54-32 on a bleak Friday night...
Halftime: Jazz 32 (total points), Warriors 20 (points off turnovers).
Watching these Warriors compared to last year makes you realize Mark Jackson isn't a very good coach.
Nice spinaround move followed by a jumper for Alec Burks.
Trey Burke played his best game of the season on Tuesday night. He's playing his worst tonight....and it's not even close
btw. Andrew Bogut defensively....I mean...wow...he's one of the best positional and help guys in the league, no question
Jazz down 48-28 with 3:36 remaining in the first half. Jazz had one mini-run with the second unit, and that's been it
Curry and Bogut just Globetrotter-ed the Jazz
Sweet Steph Curry alley-oop pass to Andrew Bogut. This Warriors team. Wow.
Jazz down 42-26 with 5:24 remaining in the first half
That was a puzzling substitution. Team was getting defensive stops with Exum on the floor
Another Livingston post up on Trey. Another basket. Lead went from 9-to-16 when Exum went to the bench.
So in three possessions that Trey Burke has been back in, the Warriors have been going right at him
And Steve Novak comes off the bench firing. Discount double check
So Exum goes to the bench after five minutes...hmmm
Best part of this Jazz-Warriors game so far was a fan admitting during a break that he used to have a dog named Rony Seikaly.
Dante Exum once again playing very good basketball off the bench. Has three rounds and a few assists in five minutes
Shaun Livingston is the first point guard I've seen this year who physically makes Dante Exum look small...He has exceptional size
Warriors defense is the story
Jazz are down 28-13 at the end of the first quarter. Bright side? well, it could've been worse. Honestly
Not sure the Jazz defense was that bad - Warriors shooting 41% have hit 4 of 11 from 3 (36%) and only have 2 free throw. Only 1 turnover
Snyder credited GSW's D, saying people don't talk about "how difficult they are to score on." Jazz had 13 points, shot 25% in first quarter.
This one looks to be over early. Jazz down 27-10. Sensing faint boredom amongst the crowd at the Oracle
Dante Exum has a new aerodynamic, high-and-tight haircut.
The Jazz are about four steps behind right now. Ugly basketball on both ends
You can tell the Warriors had about a million consecutive days off. They've scouted the Jazz extremely well. Taking away their strengths
Jazz down 19-8 with 4:38 remaining in the first quarter.
Really bad start for the Jazz...down 16-6 with five minutes remaining in the first quarter, and it doesn't look to be improving
Enes Kanter hits a jumper to give the Jazz their first points at the 7:52 mark.
Ok, they scored lol. Jazz down 12-2 early to the Warriors
The Jazz may never score again lol
In the first four minutes, the Jazz have five missed shots and three turnovers. Warriors lead 12-0.
Make that 10-0 Warriors. Jazz are 0-4 from the field.
Warriors jump out to an 8-0 start. Jazz take a time out less than three minutes in.
Quin Snyder chuckled when a reporter referred to his "fairly young" team. "Fairly young?" He pointed out the Jazz have an average age of 24.
Hornets allow 41 4th quarter points to the Magic -- what happened to the Hornets defense?
Gordon Hayward is healthy again after being sick the last week. "I feel a lot better today, a lot more energy. My legs are definitely back."
Cleveland's defense is so awful right now. Swiss cheese
The Warriors have an effective field goal of 65% with their starters on the floor.
How long before Brekkott Chapman's play begs for major minutes? He's farther along than I thought he'd be
Golden State in terms of pace is one of the fastest teams in the league. Quin Snyder said he won't shy away from that
Snyder said Dante exum looks comfortable and seems to have his legs under him. Said he looked tired this summer
Quin Snyder with some good words for enes kanter. Says he's been happy with him on both ends
Warriors coach Steve Kerr noted the Jazz are doing a lot of similar things as Golden State with ball movement, spacing, pace, etc.
So most of the jazz core players are JUST ARRIVING at the arena. Bay Area traffic is a beast lol
The Jazz bus with the coaching staff and veterans just got to the arena -- about an hour late.
Here at oracle arena. Jazz coach quin Snyder about to talk pregame
The question might not be, "Which college team could beat the Sixers?" The question might be, "Which college team couldn't beat the Sixers?"
Jazz are going into this game knowing that they are going to have to score a lot of points to have a chance to win. Stopping GS isn't easy
It's Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green as well
Obviously a major thing for the Jazz tonight centers around forcing the Warriors off the three-point line. And it's not just steph and klay
Jazz forward Gordon Hayward told me that he's much closer to 100 percent now, said his legs are back. He had been slowed by the flu
Just returned from shootaround. Jazz look loose and ready to play
The Warriors are just about the 50-40-80 as a team. 49.9% FG - 39.8% 3pt and 81.1% FT
