NEW STARTING LINEUP FOR UTAH JAZZ - Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter

David Locke

NEW STARTING LINEUP FOR THE UTAH JAZZ tonight v. Portland twitpic.com/e0wpvs

Aaron Falk

Seems like Williams could be day to day from here. Ty: "In the situation we're in, a lot of guys may try & shut it down. He won't do that."

Aaron Falk

Corbin: "Marvin we got to watch because he wants to be out there so bad. We've got to make sure we're doing the right thing by him."

Aaron Falk

No official update on Marvin Williams at this point. Corbin said he's watching closely. Knows Marvin will try to go even if he's not ready.

I'm going to write Suns assistant Mike Longabardi's name 500 times on a chalkboard so it doesn't slip my mind during a radio spot again.

The Jazz did sweep their two-game sets against Charlotte, Orlando and Philadelphia. (I'm not all gloom and doom.)

David Locke

Over the year's I have compared LaMarcus Aldridge and Al Jefferson and lots say I am nuts for questioning who is better. Am I still nuts?

David Locke

LaMarcus Aldridge is shooting 42.6% since all-star break.

Dallas missed more shots in the first 1:03 vs. San Antonio than it did in the first quarter at Utah on Tuesday night.

Steve Luhm

Angels' prospect/Salt Lake second baseman Taylor Lindsey getting tonight off. Pop-itis has spread to the Pacific Coast League.

Jody Genessy

Found it interesting at practice today that Ty Corbin talked about working with players in the summer and getting them ready for next year.

Jody Genessy

Neat story: "Father and son experience first baseball game together—after 45 years apart" po.st/aD72fg

Fourteen hours after Utah-Las Vegas ECHL game was suspended, it starts again at the Olympic Oval. Spotty wireless. I blame Congress.

Aaron Falk

On being cut: "It sucks. But it is what it is." Said he'll sit down this summer and weigh options.

Aaron Falk

Just ran into Andris Biedrins outside the Jazz practice facility. Said he's headed back to Oakland for a few days, then Latvia.

Aaron Falk

Marvin Williams (left knee bone bruise) won't practice today. He's doubtful for tomorrow vs Portland.

Jody Genessy

Marvin Williams (knee) won't practice today and is doubtful Friday vs. Portland.

Grizzlies' game vs. Las Vegas (1-1 with 6:12 left in the second period) will resume Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at the Olympic oval.

Steve Luhm

Player mingling. Fans slowly leaving. Reminds me of long-ago Cubs-Mets black-out game at Shea Stadium, except no pot-smoking guys behind me.

Steve Luhm

Kiss Cam during Grizz-Las Vegas delay. Show 3 Wranglers sitting on the boards in front of their bench. They smile, huge and kiss. Hilarious.

Steve Luhm

ECHL duty tonight. Grizzlies 1, Las Vegas 1. Game delayed an hour for ice repair behind 1 goal. How about a shootout and everybody go home?

Rudy Gobert

Gotta love the intensity in this game.

Jody Genessy

I'll be on @ESPN700 from 5:30-6. Tweet me some questions about the Jazz or the Weinermobile.

If you offer a superstar $100 million for half a season, that's like $200 million, right? Plus, it extends his career at $20M per ...

Steve Luhm

Suppose LeBron opts out and Utah offers a max contract for 50 games a year, plus the playoffs. Does he consider it?

Steve Luhm

Frank Layden offered 40-something Wilt Chamberlain such a contract. At the time, it seemed ludicrous.

Steve Luhm

Can't wait for the day when superstar players sign contract to play home games only. If the playoffs are all that matters, why not?

Reflecting back on the night, half-court shot guy deserved more love. Only hit 4 FTs. Thousands of people watching. Didn't matter. Clutch.

Steve Luhm

Jazz fan hit a half-court shot and won $2,500. Kings fan hit a half-court shot and won a car.

Changing Utah Man lyrics aren't a tragedy. But leave this part largely alone or Rockmonster Unplugged won't be jolly. rockmonster.blogs.deseretnews.com/2014/04/08/the…

David Locke

Of anyone Dirk Nowitzki comes the closest to carrying the torch of Karl Malone for his work ethic and willingness to play through injury

David Locke

The best part of Dirk is that three nights before going into top 10 he went into the Kings practice facility on his own for extra shooting

David Locke

Jazz allow 39 points in the first quarter and 34 in the 2nd half. Mavs season high in 1st and season low for 2nd half

Brad Rock

Used to laugh at Jazz drama for 8th. Now they're talking about someone else's playoff chances.

Aaron Falk

Final: Mavs 95, Jazz 83.

Brad Rock

Too bad about the long rb...all Jazz needed was 3...and another 3...and another 3

Aaron Falk

Favors hits a free throw to make it a nine-point game with two minutes left.

Enes Kanter's 17 rebounds is a season high and the 2nd highest of his NBA career
