One of my first ever assignments for the Trib was covering PG/Lone Peak and CJ Wilcox. Crazy to see him in the league right now
Former Pleasant Grove High star CJ Wilcox getting some run
Reggie Miller is very wrong. Trevor Ariza is NOT an upgrade from Chandler Parsons. No way.
Don't be shocked if Golden State comes out of the west this year
Dropped a whole coconut cream pie on floor, face down. Does 5 second rule apply?
Keep telling myself tonight the Giants had fourth-best record in the National League, finished only 15 games ahead of the Cubs.
Trey Burke plus/minus tonight: Plus 33
Utah shot 7-27 from 3-point range tonight....and still scored 105 points
Derrick Favors had 12 points, 15 rebounds and 2 blocked shots...
Russell Westbrook had 14 points, 11 assists and five rebounds....6-16 from the field
Trey Burke had 23 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds....zero turnovers
Enes Kanter scored a game-high 27 points and added seven rebounds in 29 minutes. Easily his best preseason performance
What a night for Enes Kanter (27 points, 7 rebs) and Trey Burke (23 pts, 5 assists, 0 TOs, +33).
These mood swings during the college football season in Utah aren't really healthy, are they? NBA, you can see things coming.
Rough night for the rookies. Rodney Hood went 0-7 and Dante Exum was 0-4 off the bench.
Jazz starters played very well in a nice 105-91 win at OKC to improve to 5-2 in preseason. Exhibition finale Friday at home vs. Suns.
Alec Burks with 13 free-throw attempts tonight
Here comes J Evans. Enes won't get 30
Enes Kanter may get 30....has 27
Jones has 18. He's really looked good tonight
Perry Jones with a great move, scores on Rudy Gobert and is fouled
And then Burke strips Telfair and goes coast for a hoop....Damn, Bassy
Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors have all scored in double digits when starting together in preseason.
Trey Burke just buried a three in Telfair's face. I guess the OKC run is finished
Jazz now with all five starters on the floor to finish. So no experimenting tonight. This has been a regular season rotation game
I think Arizona will be the only school remotely capable of sweeping the Pac-12 Mountain road swing this season
Bench in the game, lead down to 87-76. Do we have a repeat of Sunday?
I'm betting Westbrook is finished for the night. Has played 27 min, Brooks wanted to play him 25
Do the Jazz starters play the fourth? Utah up 85-69 heading into the final period
Dante Exum is not playing well tonight. Rookie life
All five Jazz starters in double figures. Derrick Favors with 11 points and 15 rebounds, completely controlling the paint
Wonder if that may drop them a seed or two
If Kevin Durant makes it back by the beginning of December, the Thunder should be fine. But they could struggle for the first month
Jazz up 83-63 with 3:11 remaining in the third period
The Thunder look like a team trying to learn how to play without the second best player in the world
This Jazz team is fun to watch in transition. And so far this preseason they've changed ends very quickly
Jazz up 71-59 with 7:37 remaining in the third quarter
Line on Enes Kanter so far: 21 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists....
Enes with an assist...he now has three.....
Enes scores again...he's up to 21 points
Enes hits the three, Dahntay Jones leaps from the bench and yells "hell yeah Enes"
Enes hits another three...this time from the top of the key....ummmm
Times the Jazz minutes in 1st half by 2 and it looks close to regular season - GH 17; DF 17; EK 16; TB; 16; AB 17; RH 11: TB 5; DE 8 RG 8;
Who's doing work at night with the Runnin Utes?
Thunder with 0 fast break points in the 2nd quarter - 4 for the game both baskets on fatal turnovers (above FT line) in 1st quarter
OKC has been riddled by injury though, and that goes way beyond even Kevin Durant. Jackson, Perkins, Lamb all out for the Thunder
On both sides, minutes have been distributed easily between starters and bench guys.
Derrick Favors has 11 points and 11 rebounds. Trey Burke, 11 points and three assists...Westbrook has 10 points and 8 assists for OKC
Enes Kanter finishes the first half with 16 points and 3 rebounds, as the Jazz lead the Thunder 58-50
Enes is baking Serge Ibaka right now.....I can't believe I just typed that
Derrick Favors suddenly working on a first half double-double...8 points, 10 rebounds
Derrick Favors has 9 rebounds and three points....rebounding and rim protection have been impactful
Burke has 11 points in 13 min....
Trey Burke is roasting off right now
Trey Burke has 9 points and 2 assists in 10 min
Westbrook has 10 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds in 13 minutes....great player
Former Cal Bear Richard Solomon on the floor for the Thunder
Jazz down 31-30 with 6:36 remaining in the first half
Rudy Gobert giving Steven Adams fits on both ends.
Great pass from Exum to Kanter on the break there....Jazz up 29-23, Kanter has game-high 10 points so far
Sebastian Telfair in the game for OKC....Brooklyn in the house
Jazz allow 4 fast break points in the 1st quarter. Both baskets came on fatal turnovers (above the FT line) To's by Exum and Burke
Jazz were a completely different team with Trey Burke on the bench. Didn't generate many good looks
With 45 secs remaining in first Q, Snyder calls for 2-1
Thunder on a 7-0 run with Trey Burke on the bench
To clarify my last tweet "cookies" means that you got the ball stolen from you in an embarrassing form
Dante Exum in the game. First possession defensively, Westbrook posts him up for two. First possession offensively, cookies. Westbrook dunk
Burke just pretzeled Perry Jones with a crossover and finished at the rim
Gordon Hayward has been the best player on the floor in the first quarter. Jazz up 18-12 so far
And then Kanter plays good D on Ibaka trying to isolate him. This is getting nuts!!!
Yo this floor seat thing is the ish. I can hear Quin Snyder yelling instructions and everything!!!! lol
Enes Kanter hit his first 3-pointer of the season and then missed 11 straight before finally drilling one beyond the arc tonight in OKC.
Kanter is active in these first five min. Looking to be aggressive, being decisive...He needs to do much more of that
And now Kanter hits a three....He's got 8 of Utah's 13 points so far...
Enes Kanter playing well offensively in the first five minutes. Lay-up, jumper and got fouled on hard take to the basket
Enes Kanter makes his first shot. Good sign for him
This will be the first NBA game I've ever covered from the floor
Burke, Burks, Hayward, Favors and Kanter to start for the Jazz
A few minutes from the start of Oklahoma City and the Utah Jazz.....Good test for the Jazz to see how they close a long road trip
Greg Miller continues to distance himself from Jazz fans. He does fewer media interviews and unplugged from Twitter. http://t.co/l0ZaLHQZfO
