Trey Burke is almost single-handidly winning this game for the Jazz with his ability to get into the lane
Weber State-Idaho State tonight. At halftime, Weber leads, 29-23. Big game for Wildcats' postseason tournament hopes. Southern Utah's, too.
Milwaukee is the #2 defensive team in NBA for season, Jazz have just found defensive stride #1 in NBA last 5 games. Looks like it
Burke and Booker come up with buckets, and the Jazz lead the Bucks 58-55 heading into the fourth quarter
Season low for Jazz points in a quarter: 9 (1st quarter at Dallas on 2/11 & 4th quarter at Atlanta on 11/12). Burke just gave Jazz 9 here.
Trey Burke hits a three and somehow this game is tied at 54-54
Trey Burke with a 3-ball that ties the game and nearly doubles Utah's third-quarter scoring. It's 54 all with 1:36 left in the period.
This is bad. This has just been a bad third quarter
The Jazz have four points in the third quarter. Four points in eight minutes
I'd feel remiss if I didn't give a public shoutout to one of my favorite NBA players, Zaza Pachulia. Or as I like to call him, "Abba-Zaza!"
Jeez. 2 FTA in the last 27 games for Dante Exum.
Milwaukee's length on defense is substantial
Jazz clinging to a 51-49 lead with 6:45 remaining in the third quarter
Carter-Williams for two and we have a tie game: 49-49
The Jazz, Utes and Cougars are all winning their basketball games right now. That would be a fun scenario.

Wale. Black Heroes. I. Love. This. Track.
My view. http://t.co/gxebUgzk0E
UNLV loses by 18 at Utah State; five days later beats Wyoming by 12 at home. No advantage playing MWC tournament at Thomas & Mack, right?
Halftime: Jazz 47, Bucks 40. Burke leads all scorers with 12 points. Ilyasova has 11 for Milwaukee.
Jazz up 47-40 at halftime. Trey Burke leading the way with 12 points and three assists
Rudy hit Pachulia with an elbow. Then both 27s get hit with Ts.
The Jazz up 45-35 with 1:39 remaining in the first half
Pretty sure teams are starting to shoot it at Rudy Gobert like hockey players do at a goalie. They just hope for a favorable deflection.
Utah's defense right now is getting really good
That was the inverse of the Trevor Booker alley oop.
Snyder was livid with Joe Ingles after that ill-fated fast break, quickly yanked him for Elijah Millsap.
Trey Burke is out here undressing people right now
Ingles with the oop to Booker for two, and the Jazz lead is at 39-27 with 6:14 remaining in the first half
Ball gets stuck on the top of the backboard. This is our best chance to see Giannis on Rudy's shoulders.
Jazz up 30-21 with 8:59 remaining in the first half
Rodney Hood tried to punch on Miles Plumlee...
Great move by Booker to score on the Greek Freak there

Apologize for the loading up of the time-line but I find Quin's comments about where this team is very insightful
Quin Snyder: I think the road has stretched our team beyond basketball. Our team has grown together
Quin Snyder: the position that tips the ability to switch is when you can switch at the 4
Quin Snyder: Elijah Millsap made two great passes in transition last night.
Quin Snyder: finding out how you fit offensively in a group is a challenge for a player in itself
Quin Snyder: coaching a team is like living art
Quin Snyder: I would like to think about Derrick Favors as a play making big. Making shots and passes
Quin Snyder: I have a group of guys that are very coachable and that is all you can ask for
Quin Snyder: Gobert and Favors together have to be unbelievable precise with their spacing offensively
Please send all of you candy nickname ideas to Matt "The Sour Patch Kid" Harpring.
If Rudy is "Gobstopper," all Jazz players should get candy nicknames. Malone=Jolly Rancher. Stockton=Mr. Goodbar. Ostertag=Whatchamacallit.
Keep hitting me up w nicknames. Some are very good. Never know if they will make the broadcast tonight!
Bountiful coach Mike Maxwell is a classy dude. I enjoyed covering him and his teams back in my high school writing days. Congrats, Braves.
Put your tongue in your mouth, hot shot.
I'm going to write a great screenplay for this Hollywood-like comeback Kearns High is going to make to win this state championship.
I grew up in Kearns and always felt inferior as a kid because I was from the West Side. That changed when I got to high school. ...
Thanks for indulging my high school hoops tweets. I can't imagine anybody loving their time in high school more than I did.
The disparity in hoops tradition between Bountiful and Kearns is immense. Bountiful kids are born with silver basketballs in their mouths.
These refs are obviously from Bountiful.
Not a bad NBA start for new Jazz big man Jack Cooley. Check out the league's Per 48 Minutes scoring leaders. http://t.co/pmZraHBsIX
Final: Utah State 74, Air Force 60. Impressive 6th straight for the Aggies. I've seen good teams lose at AF (Bogut/Utah, for example).
"Our first filter is our values." - Spurs GM RC Buford on choosing players. The Jazz feel the same way.
