Novak from Jimmer range.

Tony Jones

Harpring is right. That turnover on Enes. Has to keep Boozer off his back

Tony Jones

I think this third quarter is showing how potentially good Hayward/Favors have become. Was a laugher with those two on the floor

Tony Jones

Booze is working Kanter in the third quarter

Aaron Falk

Hayward and Favors have played just 12 minutes tonight. Doesn't look like they'll be coming back either.

Aaron Falk

Remember when the Jazz had a 22-point lead? Lakers have come all the way back. Wesley Johnson just tied it at 57.

Jody Genessy

Never mind about my earlier tweets. THE LAKERS ARE FOR REAL!!!! SHOWTIME IS BACK!!!!

Tony Jones

Enes Kanter just can't let Boozer walk around him like that

Tony Jones

Jazz offense has completely gone into the toilet without Hayward/Burke/Favors out there. Need to generate good looks

Steve Luhm

Jazz formula for making the playoffs? Play the Lakers 30 times.

David Locke

Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward done for the night #UTAatLAL

Tony Jones

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

David Locke

I call Jazz Coach Antonio Lang "Val" because Valedictorian is too long. Lang was the Valedictorian of his high school class

Jody Genessy

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.

David Locke

Last 10 quarters Lakers have been outscored by 90 points. Missing Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Nick Young, Ryan Kelly and Magic Johnson & crew

Aaron Falk

Halftime: Jazz 54, Lakers 38. Burks has 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting. Kobe's up to 15 on 5-of-15.

Jody Genessy

Jazz lead Lakers 54-38 at halftime.

Jody Genessy

Flex and point, Boozer! Flex and point.

Jody Genessy

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.

Tony Jones

Did anyone just see what Burks just did to Kobe Bryant?

Aaron Falk

A stoppage in play, with L.A. down 45-27. Dude in the stand fills the awkward silence: "Bring on the Laker girls."

David Locke

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

Tony Jones

Great pass by Kobe there

Aaron Falk

Kobe and Exum smiling and chatting before the inbounds. Then Bryant takes it right at the rookie, who picks up a foul.

David Locke

Rudy Gobert with 3 blocks on last 4 possessions. Only shot he didn't block was Kobe Bryant's 33 footer. #UTAatLAL

David Locke

Gobert 11 of 17 from the line in pre-season #UTAatLAL

Aaron Falk

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.

David Locke

Jazz 15 field goals 10 assists - Lakers 8 field goals and 1 assist #UTAatLAL

Jody Genessy

The Lakers have become the Chivas USA of Los Angeles sports.

Jody Genessy

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.

David Locke

The opening hour of Jazz training camp was on transition defense - Lakers get 0 fast break points in first quarter. #UTAatLAL

David Locke

Jazz lead it 32-20 after 1 - Hayward with 8-2-3. Jazz shoot 12/18 with 3 three pointers - 75% efg . Kobe 2/7 with 2 turns #UTAatLAL

Tony Jones

Burks and Hayward look dynamic together on the wings

Aaron Falk

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.

Aaron Falk

Bad pass by Hayward and, thankfully, quick hands by the guy with cane.

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward has dominated this first quarter in every facet. Impressive to watch

Tony Jones

Jazz up 30-17 on the Lakers

Jody Genessy

Quick-trigger Rodney Hood. 3. Splash.

Tony Jones

heck of a sequence for Hayward. Snaps the defensive rebound, gets team into offense and great pass to Clark for open three

Aaron Falk

5-to-1, per Bovada. RT @Bill Oram All about that bass?

Aaron Falk

"Shake It Off" was my preseason favorite to replace "Happy" in NBA arenas this year.

Aaron Falk

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.

Tony Jones

Jeremy Evans with some early minutes in place of Trevor Booker

Aaron Falk

Burks blows by Boozer and finishes the reverse layup. He has six points in his return. Jazz up 16-11.

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward waited too long to dish off to Alec Burks on that 2-on-1 fast break. Jazz are off and running tonight.

David Locke

Utah Jazz Basketball is underway - LISTEN LIVE nba.com/broadband/alp_…

Tony Jones

Alec Burks reminds me of a young Ron Harper in the open floor. Not Bulls/Lakers Harper. Cleveland Cavs Harper

Jody Genessy

I like how Alec Burks got the ball in the open court and just attacked Kobe Bryant on that fast break.

Jody Genessy

Nice cross-over move followed by a floater by Dante Exum.

Jody Genessy

Anybody else excited to see Carlos Boozer point to his flexed bicep tonight?

Jody Genessy

ICYMI, the Jazz are starting Dante Exum, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors. Trey Burke is getting a rest.

Aaron Falk

Big time celeb at Staples tonight. Professional angler Todd Kline just delivered the game ball for this one. Sing it, Randy Newman.

Tony Jones

Dante Exum starting for Trey Burke, who is getting the night off against the Lakers

Aaron Falk

He out. RT @jared123j What about Booker? He out?

David Locke

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)

David Locke

Dante Exum starts as Trey Burke starts tonight. Think tonight will be a chance for the back end of roster to show themselves tonight

David Locke

Very good conversation with @Brittonhoops and Spencer Nelson right now on @1280sports getting ready for Jazz v. Lakers #UTAatLAL

David Locke

Dante Exum starts tonight for the Utah Jazz with Trey Burke resting

Aaron Falk

Dante Exum will start tonight. Trey Burke gets the night off to rest.

Aaron Falk

Alec Burks will indeed play tonight, Snyder says. Has missed three straight games with a shoulder injury.

Jody Genessy

Famous people I've seen in the Staples Center press dining room: Jack Cooley, Steve Brown, The Real @JazzGameNight, several Laker Girls.

David Locke

Storylines out of Byron Scott. We need more time, we are even till Kobe goes out, Kobe is as good as ever

Aaron Falk

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.

Jonathan Rinehart

Touching story by @matthew_piper : sltrib.com/sltrib/sports/… Best wishes to Steve Mohlman and his family. (H/t @Steve Luhm )

David Locke

Lakers also without Steve Nash so Lakers point guard tonight is Ronnie Price

Aaron Falk

Nash, Lin, and Kelly won't play tonight. Lakers missing six guys in total.

David Locke

No Jeremy Lin for the Lakers tonight

Tony Jones

Dez is unguardable right now.....I shudder to think what he will do to my secondary next week smh

Steve Luhm

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.

Steve Luhm

Wonder if Tallahassee P.D. had an outbreak of "blue flu" this morning. You know, after crazy party celebrating Florida State win.

Tony Jones

Dear Fox sports: Pitbull is not a rapper. I don't know what he actually is. I just know he ain't a rapper.

David Locke

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)

David Locke

The other 4 offenses in pre-season top 10 finished 13,14,20 and 28 in regular season offense.

David Locke

6 of the top 10 offenses in last year's pre-season were also top 10 offense in the regular season

David Locke

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

David Locke

5 of the top 10 defensive teams in the pre-season last year were also top 10 in the defense for the regular season

David Locke

Last year the #4 team in efficiency differential in pre-season was Phoenix and it carried over - Jazz are 2nd right now

David Locke

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

David Locke

Just pre-season but .... Jazz Offense 7th in nba and defense 2nd so far in pre-season

Steve Luhm

sltrib.com/sltrib/sports/… Steve Mohlman is one of the best newspapermen/guys I've known. Good thoughts, please.

Steve Luhm

sltrib.com/sltrib/sports/… Utah State needs junior college transfers to produce

Aaron Falk

Shootaround update on Alec Burks. “It’s good to have him back on the court," Quin Snyder says. sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsja…

Tony Jones

Death, taxes, Kirk Cousins throwing interceptions

Aaron Falk

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.

Enes Kanter

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."

Steve Luhm

More Mendenhall: "Each game is decided by about 3 to 5 plays ... and that just happened."

Steve Luhm

Bronco Mendenhall on Christian Stewart's late fumble: "... Just trying to hard." Wished he would have thrown the ball away, not scrambled.

Steve Luhm

BYU outgained Nevada, 601-411. But BYU had three turnovers.

Steve Luhm

BYU is unhappy, I know. But Nevada ain't chopped liver. Beat Washington State, which beat Utah, which is 5-1.

Steve Luhm

BYU loses third in a row. First streak like it since a four-gamer in 2010 (Air Force, Florida State, Nevada, Utah State).

Jody Genessy

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.
