Me on deadline. http://t.co/IF74n1EcEX
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
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.
Lakers 98, Jazz 91....Last week of preseason is upon us
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.
Kanter air dunk
Since returning to the game and having a bad third quarter, Dante Exum has three assists in four possessions
Let's see if Exum can close out. Nice pass to Kanter there for a lay up
End of 3: Jazz 72, Lakers 69.
What a move by Hood there
In the first half, the Jazz committed 10 turnovers, leading to seven points. Those numbers are up to 21 and 25 now.
Novak from Jimmer range.
Wes Johnson. Wow
Harpring is right. That turnover on Enes. Has to keep Boozer off his back
I think this third quarter is showing how potentially good Hayward/Favors have become. Was a laugher with those two on the floor
Booze is working Kanter in the third quarter
Hayward and Favors have played just 12 minutes tonight. Doesn't look like they'll be coming back either.
Remember when the Jazz had a 22-point lead? Lakers have come all the way back. Wesley Johnson just tied it at 57.
Never mind about my earlier tweets. THE LAKERS ARE FOR REAL!!!! SHOWTIME IS BACK!!!!
Enes Kanter just can't let Boozer walk around him like that
Jazz offense has completely gone into the toilet without Hayward/Burke/Favors out there. Need to generate good looks
Jazz formula for making the playoffs? Play the Lakers 30 times.
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
I call Jazz Coach Antonio Lang "Val" because Valedictorian is too long. Lang was the Valedictorian of his high school class
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.
Last 10 quarters Lakers have been outscored by 90 points. Missing Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Nick Young, Ryan Kelly and Magic Johnson & crew
Halftime: Jazz 54, Lakers 38. Burks has 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting. Kobe's up to 15 on 5-of-15.
Jazz lead Lakers 54-38 at halftime.
Flex and point, Boozer! Flex and point.
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.
Did anyone just see what Burks just did to Kobe Bryant?
A stoppage in play, with L.A. down 45-27. Dude in the stand fills the awkward silence: "Bring on the Laker girls."
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
Great pass by Kobe there
Kobe and Exum smiling and chatting before the inbounds. Then Bryant takes it right at the rookie, who picks up a foul.
Rudy Gobert. Sheesh
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.
The Lakers have become the Chivas USA of Los Angeles sports.
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.
Burks and Hayward look dynamic together on the wings
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.
Bad pass by Hayward and, thankfully, quick hands by the guy with cane.
Gordon Hayward has dominated this first quarter in every facet. Impressive to watch
Jazz up 30-17 on the Lakers
Quick-trigger Rodney Hood. 3. Splash.
heck of a sequence for Hayward. Snaps the defensive rebound, gets team into offense and great pass to Clark for open three
"Shake It Off" was my preseason favorite to replace "Happy" in NBA arenas this year.
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.
Jeremy Evans with some early minutes in place of Trevor Booker
Burks blows by Boozer and finishes the reverse layup. He has six points in his return. Jazz up 16-11.
Gordon Hayward waited too long to dish off to Alec Burks on that 2-on-1 fast break. Jazz are off and running tonight.
Alec Burks reminds me of a young Ron Harper in the open floor. Not Bulls/Lakers Harper. Cleveland Cavs Harper
I like how Alec Burks got the ball in the open court and just attacked Kobe Bryant on that fast break.
Burks is back.
Nice cross-over move followed by a floater by Dante Exum.
Anybody else excited to see Carlos Boozer point to his flexed bicep tonight?
Good D Kanter
ICYMI, the Jazz are starting Dante Exum, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors. Trey Burke is getting a rest.
Big time celeb at Staples tonight. Professional angler Todd Kline just delivered the game ball for this one. Sing it, Randy Newman.
Dante Exum starting for Trey Burke, who is getting the night off against the Lakers
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)
Dante Exum starts as Trey Burke starts tonight. Think tonight will be a chance for the back end of roster to show themselves tonight
Dante Exum starts tonight for the Utah Jazz with Trey Burke resting
Dante Exum will start tonight. Trey Burke gets the night off to rest.
Alec Burks will indeed play tonight, Snyder says. Has missed three straight games with a shoulder injury.
Storylines out of Byron Scott. We need more time, we are even till Kobe goes out, Kobe is as good as ever
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.
Lakers also without Steve Nash so Lakers point guard tonight is Ronnie Price
Nash, Lin, and Kelly won't play tonight. Lakers missing six guys in total.
No Jeremy Lin for the Lakers tonight
Dez is unguardable right now.....I shudder to think what he will do to my secondary next week smh
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.
Wonder if Tallahassee P.D. had an outbreak of "blue flu" this morning. You know, after crazy party celebrating Florida State win.
Dear Fox sports: Pitbull is not a rapper. I don't know what he actually is. I just know he ain't a rapper.
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)
The other 4 offenses in pre-season top 10 finished 13,14,20 and 28 in regular season offense.
6 of the top 10 offenses in last year's pre-season were also top 10 offense in the regular season
