NEW STARTING LINEUP FOR UTAH JAZZ - Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter
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."
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."
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.)
Other teams the Jazz haven't beaten this year: ATL, BKN, CLE, DAL, GSW, IND, LAC, MEM, MIN, NYK, SAS, TOR.
"I didn't even know that. Damn." — Derrick Favors, upon being asked about the Jazz's 0-3 mark vs. Portland this season.
Cover Wesley Matthews. Matthews he is the bellweather of the Blazers. In Wins: 48% FG 45% from 3 In Losses: 38% FG 30% from 3
Damian Lillard 1st half v, 2nd half of games. 1st half - 46% FG 43% 3pt 2nd half - 39% FG 36% 3pt
Got my Big Al paint kit, DH Superman outfit, Harden Groomed for Greatness Beard Kit and a Rockets game. Let's vote! http://t.co/bd61nftJLb
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?
LaMarcus Aldridge is shooting 42.6% since all-star break.
Porltand offense by month - Nov: 3rd Dec 1st Jan 9th Feb 6th March 17th April 18th
Marvin Williams did not go through shootaround. Remains doubtful for tonight with that left knee bone bruise.
Happy for mozgov, just needed the confidence and opportunity
Dude is cold
Season finale of Scandal gonna be crazy
Chillin on a beautiful day ☀️ http://t.co/YXNActY6e9
Dallas missed more shots in the first 1:03 vs. San Antonio than it did in the first quarter at Utah on Tuesday night.
Angels' prospect/Salt Lake second baseman Taylor Lindsey getting tonight off. Pop-itis has spread to the Pacific Coast League.
Found it interesting at practice today that Ty Corbin talked about working with players in the summer and getting them ready for next year.
Last 20 games Al Jefferson - 25 pts 12 rebs 54% FG.
August alsina album leak??
Always park away from other cars to avoid door dents. http://t.co/7tkmFT4Xgp
Fourteen hours after Utah-Las Vegas ECHL game was suspended, it starts again at the Olympic Oval. Spotty wireless. I blame Congress.
On being cut: "It sucks. But it is what it is." Said he'll sit down this summer and weigh options.
Just ran into Andris Biedrins outside the Jazz practice facility. Said he's headed back to Oakland for a few days, then Latvia.
Marvin Williams (left knee bone bruise) won't practice today. He's doubtful for tomorrow vs Portland.
Marvin Williams (knee) won't practice today and is doubtful Friday vs. Portland.
35 years ago today - Sam Battistone and Larrry Hatfield announce they are moving Jazz from New Orleans to Salt Lake City
Deron Williams or Mike Conley? Deron Williams or Goran Dragic?
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.
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.
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.
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?
Gotta love the intensity in this game.
So, this just happened. http://t.co/6MRlpbK3PE
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 ...
Suppose LeBron opts out and Utah offers a max contract for 50 games a year, plus the playoffs. Does he consider it?
Frank Layden offered 40-something Wilt Chamberlain such a contract. At the time, it seemed ludicrous.
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?
Indiana to rest five starters at Milwaukee tonight. Assume everyone who has a ticket will be offered a refund.
Updating some player tracking data, looking into 1 or 2 other items - Tip Off a little after 8:30
Is the East actually interesting - Nets 33-13 since lineup change, Raptors 39-20 since Gay trade Bulls are 31-14 since Deng trade
Trying to keep my mind right
Reflecting back on the night, half-court shot guy deserved more love. Only hit 4 FTs. Thousands of people watching. Didn't matter. Clutch.
Jazz fan hit a half-court shot and won $2,500. Kings fan hit a half-court shot and won a car.
Dallas' lone missed FG in the first: a 22-foot Monta Ellis jumper. http://t.co/iExIJfHea0
Richard Jefferson: "When a team shoots 16-for-17 it's everything. It's a combination of them being hot, rotations, communication."
Rick Carlisle on Dirk being top 10: "This is my 30th year in the NBA & one of the few times I've truly been in awe of an accomplishment."
N another one
Of anyone Dirk Nowitzki comes the closest to carrying the torch of Karl Malone for his work ethic and willingness to play through injury
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
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
Used to laugh at Jazz drama for 8th. Now they're talking about someone else's playoff chances.
Final: Mavs 95, Jazz 83.
Too bad about the long rb...all Jazz needed was 3...and another 3...and another 3
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
