HoopsHype Utah Jazz twitter
Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors have all scored in double digits when starting together in preseason.
Trey Burke just buried a three in Telfair's face. I guess the OKC run is finished
Jazz now with all five starters on the floor to finish. So no experimenting tonight. This has been a regular season rotation game
I think Arizona will be the only school remotely capable of sweeping the Pac-12 Mountain road swing this season
Bench in the game, lead down to 87-76. Do we have a repeat of Sunday?
I'm betting Westbrook is finished for the night. Has played 27 min, Brooks wanted to play him 25
Do the Jazz starters play the fourth? Utah up 85-69 heading into the final period
Dante Exum is not playing well tonight. Rookie life
All five Jazz starters in double figures. Derrick Favors with 11 points and 15 rebounds, completely controlling the paint
Wonder if that may drop them a seed or two
If Kevin Durant makes it back by the beginning of December, the Thunder should be fine. But they could struggle for the first month
Jazz up 83-63 with 3:11 remaining in the third period
The Thunder look like a team trying to learn how to play without the second best player in the world
This Jazz team is fun to watch in transition. And so far this preseason they've changed ends very quickly
Jazz up 71-59 with 7:37 remaining in the third quarter
Line on Enes Kanter so far: 21 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists....
Enes with an assist...he now has three.....
Enes scores again...he's up to 21 points
Enes hits the three, Dahntay Jones leaps from the bench and yells "hell yeah Enes"
Enes hits another three...this time from the top of the key....ummmm
Times the Jazz minutes in 1st half by 2 and it looks close to regular season - GH 17; DF 17; EK 16; TB; 16; AB 17; RH 11: TB 5; DE 8 RG 8;
Who's doing work at night with the Runnin Utes?
Thunder with 0 fast break points in the 2nd quarter - 4 for the game both baskets on fatal turnovers (above FT line) in 1st quarter
OKC has been riddled by injury though, and that goes way beyond even Kevin Durant. Jackson, Perkins, Lamb all out for the Thunder
On both sides, minutes have been distributed easily between starters and bench guys.
Derrick Favors has 11 points and 11 rebounds. Trey Burke, 11 points and three assists...Westbrook has 10 points and 8 assists for OKC
Enes Kanter finishes the first half with 16 points and 3 rebounds, as the Jazz lead the Thunder 58-50
Enes is baking Serge Ibaka right now.....I can't believe I just typed that
Derrick Favors suddenly working on a first half double-double...8 points, 10 rebounds
Derrick Favors has 9 rebounds and three points....rebounding and rim protection have been impactful
Burke has 11 points in 13 min....
Trey Burke is roasting off right now
Trey Burke has 9 points and 2 assists in 10 min
Westbrook has 10 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds in 13 minutes....great player
Former Cal Bear Richard Solomon on the floor for the Thunder
Jazz down 31-30 with 6:36 remaining in the first half
Rudy Gobert giving Steven Adams fits on both ends.
Great pass from Exum to Kanter on the break there....Jazz up 29-23, Kanter has game-high 10 points so far
Sebastian Telfair in the game for OKC....Brooklyn in the house
Jazz allow 4 fast break points in the 1st quarter. Both baskets came on fatal turnovers (above the FT line) To's by Exum and Burke
Jazz were a completely different team with Trey Burke on the bench. Didn't generate many good looks
With 45 secs remaining in first Q, Snyder calls for 2-1
Thunder on a 7-0 run with Trey Burke on the bench
To clarify my last tweet "cookies" means that you got the ball stolen from you in an embarrassing form
Dante Exum in the game. First possession defensively, Westbrook posts him up for two. First possession offensively, cookies. Westbrook dunk
Burke just pretzeled Perry Jones with a crossover and finished at the rim
Gordon Hayward has been the best player on the floor in the first quarter. Jazz up 18-12 so far
And then Kanter plays good D on Ibaka trying to isolate him. This is getting nuts!!!
Yo this floor seat thing is the ish. I can hear Quin Snyder yelling instructions and everything!!!! lol
Enes Kanter hit his first 3-pointer of the season and then missed 11 straight before finally drilling one beyond the arc tonight in OKC.
Kanter is active in these first five min. Looking to be aggressive, being decisive...He needs to do much more of that
And now Kanter hits a three....He's got 8 of Utah's 13 points so far...
Enes Kanter playing well offensively in the first five minutes. Lay-up, jumper and got fouled on hard take to the basket
Enes Kanter makes his first shot. Good sign for him
This will be the first NBA game I've ever covered from the floor
Burke, Burks, Hayward, Favors and Kanter to start for the Jazz
A few minutes from the start of Oklahoma City and the Utah Jazz.....Good test for the Jazz to see how they close a long road trip
Greg Miller continues to distance himself from Jazz fans. He does fewer media interviews and unplugged from Twitter. http://t.co/l0ZaLHQZfO
80% of Serge Ibaka's field goals were assisted last season. What happens to him without Durant?
First LTV leaves, and now this ... http://t.co/AbXo5aEZLU
Brooks said he wants to take a last look at guys competing for the final roster spot.
According to thunder coach Scott brooks, expect ibaka to play 30 minutes tonight and Westbrook to play up to 25 minutes tonight
Westbrook, Andre Roberson, Anthony Morrow, serge ibaka and Steven Adams to start for the thunder against the jazz tonight
Trevor Booker went through shootaround this morning with zero restriction
Tonight is arguably the biggest test of the preseason for Trey Burke: Russell Westbrook
That lineup: Exum, Hood, Burks, Gobert, Kanter. Burks was the old man in that equation at 24
Asked about Sunday and the second half meltdown against the Lakers, Snyder said that the remedy for that lineup is getting older
Shouldn't be any player or minutes restrictions tonight for the Jazz in OKC. Quin Snyder said he has to make sure everyone is in shape
This is the best message I've ever seen a political candidate give on the campaign trail. Two powerful thumbs up! http://t.co/JWxvVBjO1o
Trevor Booker (sprained right ankle) will be a game-time decision for tonight's game at Oklahoma City. ,
Last game of the first long road trip of the year for the Utah jazz
Will be interesting to see who plays tonight against the thunder and if there are any minutes restrictions.
Jazz forward Trevor Booker will be a GAMETIME DECISION for tonight's matchup against Oklahoma City
College football is wacky. Weird how Bronco Mendenhall and Kyle Whittingham traded places in being beloved and belittled by fans this fall.
