Wonder if bubble teams (like BYU) notice the Mountain West still plays its tournament on the home floor of regular-season also-ran UNLV?
Jazz opponent Wed getting blown out at Golden State tonight. Devin Harris out with injury.
I think BYU is in the tournament. But, man, it's going to be a long, long five days for the Cougars.
Players who commit dumb/obvious fouls forfeit all right to turn to the official and say, "No way."
Nate Austin, ouch. Sloan once told me lost track of how many times he broke his nose.
Too many good games at the same time lol.
I can only imagine the heartfelt appreciation John Lucas III has for the concern so many Jazz fans have shown about his ankle injury.
John Lucas III sprained his right ankle at practice today. Game-time decision Wednesday vs. Dallas.
BYU's new president, Kevin J. Worthen, played basketball for CEU back in the day. Can't wait for a BYU-CEU rivalry to blossom.
Predicted before the season the Jazz would win 27 games. Shaky after 1-14 start. Looks pretty close right now.
Jazz's next six games: vs. Dallas, vs. Clippers, at San Antonio, at Houston, at Memphis.
I have been notified of echo on Tip Off. Apologize. Unfortunately not on position to fix it until later this afternoon. Sorry

Millsap said he wouldn't have minded boos, but "in the back of [his] head," he knew he'd get an ovation. "I love this crowd, they love me."
That first half? Corbin: "We were a little sluggish." Trey: "Our level of intensity wasn't as high." Gordon: "Didn't come out with energy."
Kyle Korver gave away his shoes to a Jazz fan after the game.
Just told Karl Malone about the Blake Griffin homage dunk. Mailman loved it and had a huge smile and said "I like him."
Next best chance for a win comes on March 22, at home against the Magic? Definitely tough on morale.
I know these close-but-no-cigar games are a tanker's dream, but, man, this could be the start of another brutal stretch for the Jazz.
Korver, Millsap and Carroll combine for 58 points. All three had key plays down the stretch for the Hawks, who end a six-game slide.
Jazz trail, 109-100, with 26.6 seconds left. Lose to Atlanta, 112-110.
Final: Hawks 112, Jazz 110.
Needed to take those 3s earlier.
The Hawks' 8-0 run here brought to you by ex-Jazzmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll. Hawks lead 101-96 with 1:35 to play.
A Korver 3 ties it up at 96. 3:15 to play.
Did I say defense? Hawks score on five of six trips down the floor. Go from four down to 91-88 lead with 6:33 left.
Jazz turn game in their favor with defense, believe it or not. Hawks managed 19 points in the third quarter.
Tyrone Corbin talked in pre-game about one of biggest growth issues for players has been turning bad quarter into good game - Gordon Hayward
Burke with the layup and the Jazz are up 74-73. Trailed by 15 at halftime.
Spectacular Dunk Scoreboard: Jazz 3, Atlanta 0. Of course, the Hawks still lead, 66-56.
Halftime: Hawks 58, Jazz 44. Atlanta looking to end a six-game losing streak, and the Jazz seem happy to help.
Man. You'd love to see that more often from Hayward.
Hawks lead 57-42 or 56-42, depending if you believe scoreboard or stat monitor.
Sorry, Hawks scored 12 points in 1:40 to lead, 40-27.
Jazz get within one. Hawks score 13 points in the next 1:40, including six by Korver, to take 40-27 lead.
End of 1: Hawks 28, Jazz 22. Korver and Millsap combined for 15 points.
Alec Burks might have just earned himself a flop warning. Kyle Korver thinks so.
Classy move by Paul Millsap coming to Jazz bench right before tip and shaking hands with all of the Jazz coaches, players & staff.
Really glad to hear DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap and Kyle Korver all get nice applause during pregame intros. Good guys and well deserved
Kyle Korver hits a three for Atlanta. He's had one in three straight games now.
Millsap with the first bucket of the game. Korver with the second. Once upon a time that would be a Jazz lead. But, you know, now it's not.
The multi-talented @AustinHorton set the bar too high for anyone else on press row to sing the anthem. Thankfully. http://t.co/imj1IrYqV9
Jazz and Hawks are a combined 2-19 in their last 21 games. It's Pillow Fight Night in Utah.
Loud cheers when Paul Millsap introduced. Very Deron Williams-like. Or not.
Karl Malone attending Jazz-Hawks. Just stopped and shook hands with Tyrone Corbin. Sitting courtside with Greg Miller.
Karl Malone talking with Dominique Wilkins. Both drafted by the Utah Jazz.
Kyle Korver has his wife and child here tonight. Paul Millsap's mom and family are all here tonight as well. Sign of what Utah meant.
FYI, my boss forced me to take a day off. You'll have to roll your eyes at somebody else's tweets for tonight's Jazz game.
Millsap back at ESA. http://t.co/IwKwcsVch9
Paul Millsap "I am on the opposing team now,it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they booed me. It goes beyond basketball here, it's like family"
Asked Paul Millsap his favorite moment in the building, he mentioned the big shot he hit v. Golden State in the playoffs
Paul Millsap "I am very grateful, very grateful. This is my home for 7 years. I love this place. It was a perfect fit."
Atlanta's Mike Budenholzer on Millsap's return to SLC: "I think it's naive to think it's just the exact same game as every other night."
Paul Millsap on walk into ESA "Felt different I almost walked into the wrong locker-room. I have to have a different approach tonight"
Will post the Gordon Hayward sit down today. Just finished Derrick Favors interview for next in series on Jazz radio.
Utah Jazz will run a video tribute tonight thanking Paul Millsap for his time with the Jazz
Thought of that when Paul Millsap said Jazz fans "should boo me" when he plays in Utah for the first time as an opponent. Won't happen.
Before returning after being traded, Mehmet Okur told me, "Hopefully, (Jazz fans) won't boo me." D-Will laughed. "Memo won't get booed."
Per web sites, Atlanta has lost 14 of 15 and the Jazz are 1.5-point home underdogs vs. Hawks tonight.
Since Jan 11th the Rockets have lost only 1 game that was not the back end of a back to back
Alec Burks 3 three pointers on Saturday night were a career high. Has done it 3 times this year. 12/2 v. Houston 12/11 v. Sac
Watching Clippers v. Hawks. I have always said Chris Paul is 3rd best player in NBA. Any chance it is Blake Griffin? His passing is great
Alec Burks is 15 of his last 37 from 3 over 20 games. He is 1 adjustment away from becoming a big big deal. Will talk about it on Tip Off
