HoopsHype Utah Jazz twitter
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
The other 5 defenses that finished in top 10 in defense in pre-season finished 15,16,20,21 and 22 in regular season defense
5 of the top 10 defensive teams in the pre-season last year were also top 10 in the defense for the regular season
Last year the #4 team in efficiency differential in pre-season was Phoenix and it carried over - Jazz are 2nd right now
Pre-season is hard to evaluate but last year's pre-season story was Charlotte's defense (best in pre-season) with new coach, it carried over
Just pre-season but .... Jazz Offense 7th in nba and defense 2nd so far in pre-season
Ha ha, Rams. Nice.
Death, taxes, Kirk Cousins throwing interceptions
Alec Burks had an ice wrap on his shoulder after shootaround, but the Jazz guard says he's good to go tonight against the Lakers.

Mendenhall on Nevada's Cody Fajardo: "... He's a good quarterback. He's mobile. He's tough. I thought that a year ago. He's good."
More Mendenhall: "Each game is decided by about 3 to 5 plays ... and that just happened."
Bronco Mendenhall on Christian Stewart's late fumble: "... Just trying to hard." Wished he would have thrown the ball away, not scrambled.
BYU outgained Nevada, 601-411. But BYU had three turnovers.
BYU is unhappy, I know. But Nevada ain't chopped liver. Beat Washington State, which beat Utah, which is 5-1.
BYU loses third in a row. First streak like it since a four-gamer in 2010 (Air Force, Florida State, Nevada, Utah State).
Per LDS regulations, the Sabbath does not commence in Utah until BYU's football game ends. It will then last for the next 24 hours.
They likely won't play this season, but Utah State defense vs. Nevada offense would be fun to watch ...
Nevada just ran a beautiful pick play, by the way.
If the offensive P.I. was so obvious, why did Florida State DBs start yelling at each other instead of the officials?
Pretty sure that official's day job is Tallahassee cop.
That was a good call.
Fade to Robinson
WOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW INCREDIBLE PLAY BU GOLSON!!!!
BYU-Nevada first quarter ends at 9:12 p.m. New career goal: Cover a football game that ends after sunrise.
That throw by Winston. wow
Is that leadership from Jameis Winston? It was when it was Tim Tebow
Do we agree that both of these teams should still be in playoff hunt regardless of outcome? Or does a loss cripple one?
That Notre Dame tight end catching everything is D Rob's son? wow. He's gonna make NFL dollars
Considering how good this Florida State/Notre Dame game has been, how far would you drop the loser in the polls?
When your team is favored and you win the toss, take the ball like Colorado State. Show confidence in your offense. Set the tone.
USU loses 16-13 to CSU on a last second field goal
THAT'S A RUN-OFF!!!! It's a penalty!!!
wow. what a play by the Utah State defense!!!!!
Cue your "Will BYU play on Sunday if its late-starting game against Nevada goes past midnight" tweets ...
What happened to D. Garretson
Forget Bill Simmons. ESPN should suspend itself for starting a football game at 8:30 p.m. Can't wait for November, when it's 10 degrees.
worst decision I've ever seen Winston make.
If I'm an NFL team with a top 3 pick, how do I pass on Winston, even with his character issues? Football wise, has better talent than luck
It's my anniversary. I'm in L.A. My wife is in SLC. At least our celebration dinner won't be interrupted by a breaking story like last year.
Alec Burks (L shoulder contusion) will be game-time decision, Trevor Booker (sprained R ankle) doubtful for tomorrow’s game at the Lakers
Per Jazz JR, Alec Burks will be a game-time decision tomorrow and Trevor Booker is listed as doubtful to play.
Alec Burks (left shoulder contusion) might play Sunday. Trevor Booker (sprained right ankle) is doubtful vs. Lakers.
So does Bob Stoopes make like Mike Leach and fire his special teams coach?
In honor of another Cub-less World Series, here's a 45-year-old SI that I found in my closest the other day. http://t.co/YENjxOeJss
Amusing Blake Griffin got upset over the hardest foul committed by a Jazz player in three years (and it wasn't that hard).
I need Katy Perry to never make a pass at a quarterback again. Knight ain't been right since smh
Quin Snyder on young Jazz, who lost 101-97 to Clippers: "We’re in the process of trying to develop an identity. Nights like tonight help."
Trevor Booker said he wasn't mad until Blake Griffin grabbed the back of his head. "We have our history. ... We’ve gotten into it before."
Trevor Booker on his ankle: "It’s a little sore, but nothing major. I’ll be back in a couple of days." Jazz next play Sunday vs. Lakers.
Trevor Booker was surprised by the flagrant call, but not by Blake Griffin's reaction. "We have our history," he said.
Trevor Booker sprained his ankle while being restrained during the quarrel with Griffin. "I tried to break away and ended up twisting it."
And, uh, just ignore that photo at the top of the story.
Jazz forward Trevor Booker said he's mystified why he was given a Flagrant 1 in his fracas with Blake Griffin. He hopes league overturns it.
Trevor Booker has a walking boot on his sprained right ankle.
What a game. Jazz lose to the Clippers 101-97.
The Jazz will lose games like this in the regular season.....ones where experience gets them in the waning moments
Up 3, Clippers foul Trey. The disregard for my deadline is in midseason form.
Jamal Crawford for 3. Again. Clippers up 98-95 with 18.5 seconds left. Jazz take final TO. Quin Snyder trying to work some preseason magic.
