HoopsHype Utah Jazz twitter
Norris Cole, Luol Deng, Lone Peak product Justin Hamilton, D Wade and Chris "Birdman" Andersen starting for the Heat
Burke, Burks, Favors, Kanter and Hayward starting for the Jazz tonight
The Jazz are looking to win their second game in 14 tries tonight. Still, have played reasonably well in previous two road games
Quin Snyder said his team has to learn to weather storms when other teams up the intensity
Josh McRoberts (impending knee surgery) is also out for Miami.
It helps the Jazz that Chris Bosh (calf) will not play.
While Jazz C Derrick Favors (ankle) will play, he said he's still pretty sore. He's not sure how much he can do tonight.
Just spoke with Derrick Favors. He's still a bit sore. Giving it a go, and will see how it feels and how he responds
Derrick Favors will play tonight at Miami.
Good news for the jazz as favors has missed the past two games
Derrick favors will play tonight
This nice moment between ref Ken Mauer and Pelicans F Luke Babbitt will be in the Game 25 Rapid Recap director's cut. http://t.co/01QBDNnXni
Weight room at Bishop Gorman, where Utes practice. http://t.co/b6zzPzufDG
With Bosh and McRoberts Heat would post Wade and Deng and space with shooters. Now spacing with Haslem, Hamilton, Williams and Birdman
CORRECTION - Alec Burks is leading the Jazz in 3 point shooting over last 5 games at 44%. Leading for season at 37.5%
At the Miami airport: Fili, a cool/tired guy who drove BYU football's equipment semi-trailer for 49 HOURS from Utah. http://t.co/OYsn9GICJC
Cleveland really? http://t.co/VEbhWmwMt4
Fun fact related to today's hot news topic: Cuba is closer to Miami than the car rental center is to the city's airport.
Alec Burks is the Jazz best three point shooter at 44%.
From studies I have done those two increase (turnovers forced + fouls) and then defensive FG% starts to fall. Let's see if it happens.
Jazz have 2 indicators consistent with defenses that improve - forcing more turnovers + fouling more. Later seems counterintuitive but true
% of opponents possessions as turnovers 1st 10 games: 12.7% 2nd 10 games: 13.0% Last 5 games: 14.9%
Little improvements. Jazz were very passive defensively early in place but no force. Quin wanted more force = more turns. Happening
The Jazz and Heat will be a little different tonight. No Chris Bosh, who played very well against Utah last week at ESA
Probably didn't emphais this enough on TIP OFF - some really great sets by the Pelicans using Evans/Davis and Anderson late in game.
Last 5 games Dante Exum is shooting 52.4% and 50% from 3. Limited amount of shots but considerably different than before
Half of the Deseret News sports staff will be in Miami this week for the Jazz and BYU football. Thanks, subscribers!
Pelicians tv crew losing it that the Pels are biting on Enes pump fake and drive. Next team won't so Enes has to hit J tonight.
So, the Kings fully support Ty Corbin but have a "friendly meeting" with Mark Jackson and reach out to Vinny Del Negro. Sounds about right.
Up obscenely early to catch my plane to Miami....nba writer life
Gobert said he was literally pushing Kanter in the back to get him into the proper defensive position, and it took a while to explain that.
Snyder said he liked how Enes and Rudy yapped at each other. He wants communication, and he'd rather they yell at each other than not talk.
Bummer to hear that Bucks rookie Jabari Parker is likely done for the season with a torn ACL, according to ESPN.
You might laugh, but an NBA team playing as well as the Jazz did following a night off in New Orleans doesn't always happen. Step forward.
The fourth-quarter play by play does not remember Alec Burks fondly. http://t.co/GaWC6PGzeu
What really killed Utah tonight is Ryan Anderson scoring 28 points.....10-15 from the field, hit six three pointers
Anthony Davis has missed seven shots against the Jazz....all season...has scored 74 points
Enes Kanter sets a new career-high with 29 points...he added seven rebounds
Anthony Davis scores 31 points and does it on 12-15 shooting. Even for him, he loves playing against the Jazz
A disastrous fourth sends Utah to a third straight loss and 12th defeat in 13 games. Jazz are now 6-19, which is what they were last year.
New Orleans rallies to beat the Jazz 119-111.....Utah surrenders 41 fourth quarter points. Led by 12 early in final period
Pelicans have scored 41 points in the fourth quarter.
Jazz will fall to 0-2 on the road trip....Miami tomorrow night
When doesn't Tyreke Evans play like Magic Johnson against Utah?
Jazz led 89-78 heading into the fourth quarter. Pelicans are now up 117-109 with 27.9 seconds left.
Can't give up 40 point fourth quarters and protect leads
Jazz down 113-109 with 54.7 seconds remaining
Davis has gone 11-14 to get his 29 points. Have to make it more difficult than that
New Orleans fans are chanting "M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P!" for Anthony Davis. Can't disagree.
The Jazz have surrendered 35 points in the fourth quarter. And now chants of MVP are being serenaded on Anthony Davis
Anthony Davis blocks on one end, tips in a shot at the other end. This guy!
Pierre the Pelican climbed the stairs in the upper deck for a Rocky skit. While funny, it also highlighted how New Orleans Arena is empty.
Ryan Anderson has 23 points off the bench for the Pelicans. Austin Rivers has 12. Both have hurt Utah significantly
The Pelicans have erased a 12 point fourth quarter deficit and now lead 105-104 with 3:17 remaining
Alec Burks goes hero ball, misses. Pelicans then take the lead on a Tyreke Evans fast-break layup.
Booker hustle. Extends possession.
Dante Exum has set a new career-high tonight with 12 points
Enes Kanter's career high is 27 points. Has 25 with 5:47 remaining
Kanter and Gobert bickered while coming off the court after that Pelicans possession. Snyder calmed them down. Hayward was there too.
Jazz are being sped up. The crowd is awake and the atmosphere is difficult
Exum starting to make rookie mistakes...
Alec Burks beats the shot clock with a 3 to put Jazz up 102-96.
Huge three from Burks there
Dante Exum appears to be growing up just a little tonight in New Orleans.
So this is Dante Exum's best overall game of his career. Without looking at the stats I'm certain of it
New Career high for Dante Exum - 12 points
Dante Exum. BURST. OF. SPEED!
Jazz up 96-89 with 8 minutes remaining...a ton of time
Pelicans have picked up their intensity.
Nice pick and roll from Exum and Kanter, leads to a foul...Enes on the line
New Orleans with the run now....seven point game
