We're a quarter and a half into this game, and the Jazz only have as many field goals (seven) as I did wet Memphis-style BBQ ribs for lunch.

David Locke

Jazz are 2 of last 17 from the field.

Jody Genessy

How bad is Memphis playing? The Jazz have shot 25 percent (7-for-28) but are still tied at 23 with the Grizzlies.

David Locke

Gordon Hayward 4 of last 23 from 3 since all-star. Tough for Jazz if he doesn't hit from outside not many other shooters

Aaron Falk

End 1: Grizz 20, Jazz 19. Gasol's floated a couple shots over Gobert's long arms. He has six points. Memphis with 10 points in the paint.

Jody Genessy

Marc Gasol just gave a course on How To Combat Opponents' Length 101, spinning away from Gobert and shooting a fading J. Sweet shot.

David Locke

Grizzlies are 3 of 10 shooting in Gobertland (the paint)

Jody Genessy

Rudy Gobert's height is clearly bothering Marc Gasol early on. Grizz center has only made one of four shots.

Aaron Falk

About 90 percent of Quin Snyder's coaching directed at Exum early on. A mix of encouragement and instruction so far. Jazz up 7-4 early.

Jody Genessy

Jazz off to a nice start, leading Grizzlies 7-2.

Tony Jones

YOOOOOO DSR made em Dance!!!!

David Locke

Dear @ESPNNBA next year you will have @Rudy Gobert on the top of the list. Probably could be now. Jazz #1 defense in NBA in Feb.

Aaron Falk

Grizzlies starters: Conley, Lee, Green, Koufos & Gasol. Vince Carter is inactive.

Jody Genessy

Kosta Koufos is starting for the Grizzlies. THE KOUF REVENGE GAME!!!

Aaron Falk

Former Jazzman Kosta Koufos will start tonight in place of Zach Randolph.

Jody Genessy

Z-Bo and Beno are out/ill, and Tony Allen is serving a one-game suspension. Bodes well for Jazz getting first three-game winning streak.

Andy Larsen

Do you realize that the Jazz have only been outscored by 77 points total this season? It's totally possible they end with a positive margin.

Aaron Falk

Vince Carter warming up in Memphis. vine.co/v/O0g0HvPAFnn

Aaron Falk

Things getting interesting: Z-Bo, Beno out tonight with illness. Tony Allen has been suspended for the night.

David Locke

Also Zack Randolph and Beno Udrih are now listed as questionable due to illness. #UTAatMEM

David Locke

Tony Allen will not play tonight for the Memphis Grizzlies he has been suspended by the team. internal matters

Jody Genessy

Former Lone Peak High player Justin Hamilton was waived by the New Orleans Pelicans today.

Jody Genessy

Beat writers are now crossing fingers that the Jazz will change the game's tipoff to 7 instead of 8:30.

Jody Genessy

The Utah Jazz just lost their only ESPN appearance of the season (vs. Wizards on March 18). The replacement: Atlanta at Golden State.

David Locke

Left over from last summer's research. Brian Shaw adds to list of former player long time assistants that don't pan out as head coach.

Aaron Falk

Important Stat of the Day: Memphis is undefeated (6-0) on Tuesdays this season, per Grizzlies PR.

Andy Larsen

Salt City Hoops Show will be airing tonight at 7 PM on ESPN700, despite Jazz game at the same time. We'll make it slightly more podcasty.

Jody Genessy

How jealous are Nuggets players that their coach just got fired and doesn't have to keep going for another 1, 2, 3 ... 6 weeks!?

Andy Larsen

Aww man. Bovada took the Jazz off the board for winning the NBA title. It's probably not happening this year, guys. http://t.co/gPPF5nIOKA

Ideas I've heard for DEN job thus far from fans: JVG, Mike Malone, JB Bickerstaff, Ty Corbin, Mike Longabardi, Tyronn Lue.

David Locke

Universally anytime I talk to someone in basketball who knows Quin Snyder the first reference is "his brilliant basketball mind"

Andy Larsen

If you were the Nuggets, who would you hire as coach?

Last 5 games Jazz are +51 with Trevor Booker on the floor

Rudy Gobert

Good test for us tomorrow against a very good Memphis team. #letsgetit

Steve Luhm

When Utah traded Enes Kanter, I suggested he could be a 16/10 guy. Per @Darnell Mayberry, he's averaging 15.8/10.2 in 5 games with OKC.

David Locke

Bolerjack did the damage at Gus Fried Chicken instagram.com/p/zv9f7KBrgV/

Rudy Gobert

After this ,Hassan better have 99 in the tackle category . #2Kratinggoinup

Tony Jones

At some point, you gotta let players stand up for themselves. Or refs gotta go after the aggressors...Walker should've been t'd immediately

Tony Jones

And then Henry Walker tackles Morris and stands over him, like Morris wouldn't take exception to that. Cmon NBA refs, so your job

Tony Jones

Len had every right to defend himself there. Only ejection should be Whiteside. That's bush league on his part.

Tony Jones

Second time Whiteside did that to Len after a dunk. Len had every right to go after him. Oh well

Tony Jones

hahaha Keef Morris' night is gonna be finished

Andy Larsen

I also just got a personal safety demonstration, just to me. Which was hilarious and very high pressure.

Andy Larsen

Okay, @SouthwestAir is kind of awesome. They pulled the ramp back up to the closed plane door for me. http://t.co/9lmtfJywTA

20% of Jazz opponents offensive possessions are ending in a Jazz steal or block since the all-star break

Tony Jones

Chalmers is working Brandon Knight

David Locke

Always remember my room at a hotel by athlete numbers. Is #17 the least interesting number? Sorry @Barryathree

Tony Jones

oh my lord, Whiteside.....Alex Len is a victim

David Locke

Since All-Star break Jazz opponents are shooting 24% from three point range

Jonathan Rinehart

Last time we were in Memphis, the @Utah Jazz visited @stjude and @Gordon Hayward got a once-in-a-lifetime makeover: bit.ly/FFL-GH

Gordon Hayward

I became a St. Jude Fan for Life! See my transformation: bit.ly/FFL-GH

David Locke

Created a new stat today on flight. Concept is player pts scored per night over the average player using those possessions. Good findings

David Locke

Ron Boone "That was interesting. I enjoyed that." I am tweeting this so it is on record.

David Locke

7.7% of the Houston Rockets shots are 3's in first 6 seconds of the shot clock. However, they make just 32.8% for .98 pts per shot

David Locke

6.1% of the Phoenix Suns shots are 3's in the first 6 seconds of the shot clock. Scoring at 1.25 pts per shot

David Locke

7.4% of the the Golden State Warriors shots are 3 pointers in the first 6 seconds of the shot clock. Average 1.29 pts per shot

David Locke

You may not believe this but @1041straight has asked me to look at shot clock usage stats on the plane today.

Jody Genessy

Coach Snyder and his staff are getting players who aren't necessarily good individual defenders to become good team defenders.

Jody Genessy

This defensive improvement is what happens when players buy what they're coach is selling -- from Exum to Millsap to The Stifle Tower.

Jody Genessy

More than anything, the Utah Jazz are finally starting to establish a team identity. It's been a long time coming.

Jody Genessy

I'm still stunned by defensive improvements made by the Jazz. Utah has been the NBA's third-best D the past 15 games after a rough start.

Andy Larsen

As Andy learns that he will likely spend a lovely night in the Chicago Midway airport, he announces that #AskAndy will go on indefinitely.

The biggest road win of the season for the Jazz was at Memphis. Utah returns there tomorrow a changed team - sltrib.com/sports/2238466…

Utah coach Krystkowiak is reading Dr. Seuss poems to begin his weekly press conference. This is wonderful. Tune in at @ESPN700.

Aaron Falk

If they go 2-2 on this trip (MEM, BOS, PHI, BKN), the Jazz match their win total from a season ago with 20 games left to play.

Utah, 4-1 & the top defense since the all-star break, moves up to 17 in @Marc Stein's latest power rankings: espn.go.com/nba/powerranki…

Last year Jazz allowed 109 pts per 100 possessions This year Jazz allow 104 per 100 Feb 97 per 100 (#1 in NBA) Since ASB 87 per 100

On the last episode of #AskAndy in August, we learned that the B. stands for "Bryce". It was a big reveal.
