HoopsHype Utah Jazz twitter
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

Anthony Davis blocks on one end, tips in a shot at the other end. This guy!

Strong stuff in those final two minutes, right down to Exum's put-back at the horn.
Terrific play by Dante Exum, who caught an offensive rebound and threw it back up and in before coming down to beat the quarter buzzer.

Gordon has Austin Rivers on him and is sensing barbecue chicken
Jazz closing out the third STRONG....up 86-78
Dante Exum can defend. Like, he can REALLY defend. Once he gets strength he will be a nightmare for ballhandlers

Good take by Hood there
I'd give that dude a touch every possession

Enes Kanter looks like he's playing for the pride of Turkey against Omer Asik.
Alright time to mention this: Enes is giving Anthony Davis work
Enes is playing very well tonight
Man, it was great to see my predecessor, Tim Buckley, at halftime. He's in town to cover the Ragin' Cajuns in the New Orleans Bowl.
