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.

Jody Genessy

Happy Birthday to a friend, a scholar and a gentleman who helped me get on Twitter, @theshums. (Maybe wait until tomorrow to swear at him.)

David Locke

Alec Burks is the Jazz best three point shooter at 44%.

David Locke

From studies I have done those two increase (turnovers forced + fouls) and then defensive FG% starts to fall. Let's see if it happens.

David Locke

Jazz have 2 indicators consistent with defenses that improve - forcing more turnovers + fouling more. Later seems counterintuitive but true

David Locke

% of opponents possessions as turnovers 1st 10 games: 12.7% 2nd 10 games: 13.0% Last 5 games: 14.9%

David Locke

Little improvements. Jazz were very passive defensively early in place but no force. Quin wanted more force = more turns. Happening

Tony Jones

The Jazz and Heat will be a little different tonight. No Chris Bosh, who played very well against Utah last week at ESA

David Locke

Probably didn't emphais this enough on TIP OFF - some really great sets by the Pelicans using Evans/Davis and Anderson late in game.

David Locke

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!

David Locke

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.

Jazz empathetic for fired Kings coach, happy for former Utah coach Tyrone Corbin | Deseret News po.st/Djm0dH via @deseretnews

Jody Genessy

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.

Jody Genessy

Leaving NOLA without having enjoyed any beignets. #wastedtrip

Tony Jones

Up obscenely early to catch my plane to Miami....nba writer life

David Locke

Way to go #jazznation just heard the JP Gibson video got named one of years top viral videos on NBC Brian Williams news

Jody Genessy

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.

Jody Genessy

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.

Jody Genessy

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.

Can't give up 40 point fourth quarters and protect leads

Tony Jones

Jazz down 113-109 with 54.7 seconds remaining

Tony Jones

Davis has gone 11-14 to get his 29 points. Have to make it more difficult than that

Tony Jones

The Jazz have surrendered 35 points in the fourth quarter. And now chants of MVP are being serenaded on Anthony Davis

Jody Genessy

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

Jody Genessy

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.

Tony Jones

Ryan Anderson has 23 points off the bench for the Pelicans. Austin Rivers has 12. Both have hurt Utah significantly

Brad Rock

Burks, stop trying to draw the foul, try making the shot. #UTAatNOP

Tony Jones

The Pelicans have erased a 12 point fourth quarter deficit and now lead 105-104 with 3:17 remaining

Jody Genessy

Alec Burks goes hero ball, misses. Pelicans then take the lead on a Tyreke Evans fast-break layup.

Booker hustle. Extends possession.

Tony Jones

Dante Exum has set a new career-high tonight with 12 points

Tony Jones

Enes Kanter's career high is 27 points. Has 25 with 5:47 remaining

Exum starting to make rookie mistakes...

Jody Genessy

Alec Burks beats the shot clock with a 3 to put Jazz up 102-96.

Tony Jones

Huge three from Burks there

Steve Luhm

Dante Exum appears to be growing up just a little tonight in New Orleans.

Tony Jones

So this is Dante Exum's best overall game of his career. Without looking at the stats I'm certain of it

David Locke

New Career high for Dante Exum - 12 points

Jody Genessy

Dante Exum. BURST. OF. SPEED!

Dante Exum has a group of supporters in the crowd, chanting his name

Jody Genessy

Trevor Booker just rattled the dust off of every inch of the stanchion with that power dunk.

Tony Jones

Enes Kanter now knows that the Pelicans can't stop him. Is being aggressive every time he gets the ball

Tony Jones

Enes Kanter has 20 points. Trey Burke has 16 points. Gordon Hayward has 15 and Alec Burks has 12....Exum has 9

Strong stuff in those final two minutes, right down to Exum's put-back at the horn.

Jody Genessy

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.

Tony Jones

Dante Exum beats the third quarter buzzer...Jazz up 89-78 with 12 minutes remaining

Tony Jones

Gordon has Austin Rivers on him and is sensing barbecue chicken

Tony Jones

Jazz closing out the third STRONG....up 86-78

Tony Jones

Dante Exum can defend. Like, he can REALLY defend. Once he gets strength he will be a nightmare for ballhandlers

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward shot that jumper about 20 feet high to get it over Anthony Davis.

Good take by Hood there

Tony Jones

I'd give that dude a touch every possession

Tony Jones

Alright time to mention this: Enes is giving Anthony Davis work

Tony Jones

Enes is playing very well tonight

Jody Genessy

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.
