Alec Burks and Gordon Hayward both had 3 secondary assists (or hockey assists) tonight. Sign of improved ball movement
When Tony Allen had a small fracture in his hand first time table was two weeks and then he missed more.
Rudy Gobert had 8 rebounds in 12 minutes and only had 14 rebound chances grabbing 67%. Going to be so fun to watch him grow this year
Jazz allowed 49 uncontested shots tonight. Mavericks just keep probing until you make a mistake. Smart basketball players
Ok Clipper owner dude, calm down. You obviously know the camera is on you
hahaha Bassy don't end it like THAT
In EMPTYING THE NOGGIN I broke down all 9 layups or dunks for the Mavericks in the 1st quarter. Interesting to re-watch those plays
When KD comes back, if the lineup isn't KD, Jones, Ibaka, then I'm questioning life
Perry Jones handing out BUCKETS!!!!
Derrick Favors has been terrific in both games and they have been against Dwight Howard and Tyson Chandler.
Two teams Jazz have played finshed last year 3rd and 4th offensively last year. Both may better this year
Playing catchup in a blowout, the Jazz tied the franchise record w/ 35 attempts from 3. Same number they took last time in Dallas (2/7/14).
What was Snyder's message in the first time out? “Kind of wake up," he said. "There were a lot of timeouts like that.”
Snyder: “I don’t want to make any kind of sweeping statement, but yeah, I’m concerned. You’re concerned if you play bad defense for 1 game."
Through two games, Jazz are shooting 32% on three-pointers. As I said originally, they're not built to take 35 in a game right now and win.
Dallas wasn't working nearly as hard on defense in the second half. Make 40% of your threes in a close game. That's when it counts.
Game's changed, of course. But you can't just take three-pointers, you need to make them when you aren't down 20 and opponent is defending.
Jazz were 2-for-8 on three-pointers in the first quarter, when they fell behind by 16. So, yeah, fire away.
Well, at least Louisville made Tallahassee P.D. sweat for awhile ...
Jazz are not built to take 35 three-point shots. Until they find 4-5 reliable shooters, it's a recipe for blow-out losses.
The vocal Dallas fan behind press row yelled at the Jazz, "Go back to the Wasatch Front!" Utah will with its second loss, 120-102 to Dallas.
That's a wrap in Dallas. No birthday victory for Quin Snyder. Jazz fall to the Mavericks 120-102, dropping to 0-2 on the season.
The Utah Jazz have tied a franchise record with 35 3-point attempts. The last time they shot that many was on Feb. 7, also in Dallas.
The Kanter 3-point storyline was probably overplayed. The Trevor Booker storyline probably under played. Just hit his third of the night.
The Mavericks passed the 100-point mark with 8:25 remaining in the game. Utah still hasn't hit 80.
The Jazz are 11-for-31 from 3-point territory.
End of 3: Mavs 93, Jazz 73.
The Jazz have competed defensively in the third quarter. That's half the battle. And the offense has come
Kiss Cam turned into Will You Marry Me? Cam in Dallas. She said "yes" while a guy in a cowboy hat swayed and pointed at her from behind.
Utah back within 20, at 78-58. Jazz already up to 24 attempts from 3 with 6:39 left to go in the third. Took 18 of them last night.
Good run by the Jazz....deficit down to 20 now
When did Amare Stoudemire turn back into STAT
Halftime: Mavs 69, Jazz 44. Hayward has 11 points and Favors has 8. For Dallas, it's Dirk (13), Chandler (11), Parsons (11) & Ellis (10).
Jazz are down 25 at halftime. But they are playing back-to back. It's also their second game in 190 days.
If you can't stop em, put Novak in and bomb your way back into it. Discount double-check for three
Jazz rallied to pull within 25 of the Mavericks at halftime.
Jazz need to send their game-ops crew to Dallas. Mavs entertainment is top-notch. Nowitzki, Parsons and Ellis just did a hilarious rap.
If the Mavs don't let up, they can win this game by 60
Embarrassing first half for the Jazz. No other way around it
We have a Steve Novak sighting.
Hayward is the only person who's played well tonight
Terrific inbounds play by the Jazz. Exum curls around and gets a dunk after a nice entry pass from Hayward.
Not sure why this is but Gobert checked in at 3:03 in 1st quarter and checked out at 9:00 of 2nd. Jazz scored 2 pts in that stretch
Nice play by Ingles there. Good drive and dish
The Down Under Duo — Dante Exum and Joe Ingles — is on the court together for the Utah Jazz.
Former Jazz man Devin Harris hits a pair of free throws. Mavs up 43-22. So, guys, about Whataburger ...
Dunkin' Donuts missing great opportunity by not being a corporate sponsor of Jazz defense.
A Mavs fan just won free Water Burger for a year. Dude can throw large French fries into a container.
Congratulations and RIP to the guy who just won free Whataburger for a year.
To say this is an awful defensive first quarter for the Jazz is a diss to awful defensive first quarters everywhere
Jazz trail the Mavs 36-20 after the first quarter.
End of 1: Mavs 36, Jazz 20.
Huge cheer for Richard Jefferson as he checks in for Dallas. Or maybe it was for J.J. Barea's homecoming. So hard to tell.
Love Hayward's aggression so far tonight. Hitting threes, getting to the rack
Dallas shooting: Nowitzki, Chandler, Ellis, Nelson: 10-for-10 Parsons: 0-for-3
Tyson Chandler is dunking off of alley-oops as often as I've been doing Vines lately.
Rodney Hood's been looking forward to playing against fellow Mississippian Monta Ellis. The Jazz rookie is on the floor with him now.
Chandler Parsons had the Mavs' first miss of the game — a 3-point attempt five-plus minutes in.
There you go. A stop
The Mavs have hit their first eight shots to take a 20-11 lead over the Jazz. I haven't seen shooting like this since Media Training Camp.
Five minutes into this game and the Jazz have yet to get a single defensive stop....wow
I assume all those preseason 35-win predictions for the Jazz are being recalculated as we speak.
Think the Mavs are happy to have Tyson Chandler back? Two early lobs for dunks. Mavs up 11-4 early. Quin Snyder calls timeout.
Quin Snyder took a quick timeout after Dallas jumped ahead of the Jazz 11-4.
Jazz' first five defensive possessions? not good
Jazz' first three defensive possessions? not good
Kevin Love playing a bit harder tonight than he did in Minnesota finale vs Jazz last year.
The Kev Love/Wes Unseld outlet pass. Beauty
Jazz have new really cool road shooting jackets. They look like a silver with navy blue lettering. Too far away to take a picture
LeBron may average a career high in assists this season
Big minutes last night for Burke (38), Burks (35) & Hayward (38). Snyder left them in longer when Jazz made a run, but said it wasn't ideal.
Quin Snyder says he wants to see Gordon Hayward evolve into a Scottie Pippen type player. http://t.co/eUXJQE2bDx
Jazz rookie Dante Exum said it was a relief to play his first NBA game and especially to hit his first shot as a pro.
Very quickly becoming an Elfrid Payton fan
Joe Ingles is active again tonight. Sort of a surprise choice yesterday, but Snyder says he's "easy to play with" & Jazz need 4th wing mins.
Jazz rookies sang to Snyder on the team charter. He said the NBA didn't give him a very good birthday present with a road game at Dallas.
Jazz coach Quin Snyder joked that he's been getting "embarrassed all day long" from people wishing him a happy 48th birthday.
Dallas coach Rick Carlisle on the Quin Snyder-coached Jazz: "They're doing the right things."
Mavs coach Rick Carlisle was asked by a Dallas reporter how he feels about having J.J. Barea back. His in-depth answer: "Good."
