Tony Jones

Jazz up 74-68 with 4:43 remaining in the third quarter

Tony Jones

Jazz 10 point lead shaved to 3 in about 90 seconds

Tony Jones

Meanwhile Enes Kanter is playing his best game of the season

Tony Jones

Jazz up 67-57 with 8:26 remaining in the third quarter

Jody Genessy

Enes Kanter is in beast mode.

Jody Genessy

Enes Kanter looks like he's playing for the pride of Turkey against Omer Asik.

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.

David Locke

Jazz are 18 of 25 in the restricted area in the first half. Amazing 58% of their shots in 1st half in restricted http://t.co/jsy2uUhfiO

David Locke

Two roller skaters on a table at halftime. I miss Red Panda. Comeback?

Tony Jones

Most interesting stat of the first half? Dante Exum and Trey Burke play the same out of minutes - 12

Tony Jones

Jazz lead 56-53 after the first half

Tony Jones

Exum has seven points after that three

Tony Jones

Rudy making things difficult on New Orleans in the lane. His teammates know this and know they can be more aggressive on the perimeter

Tony Jones

Kanter just bested Anthony Davis in the paint...way to create space

Aaron Falk

Ryan Anderson went 2 for 15 when the Pelicans beat the Jazz in Salt Lake. He's 6 for 7 (3/4 from three-point) so far tonight.

Tony Jones

Exum in, Burke out...

Tony Jones

Trey Burke has 14 points...no other Jazz player has more than six...Trevor Booker has four points and three rebounds off the bench

Tony Jones

Jazz up 43-40 with 4:47 remaining in the first half

Tony Jones

Lost Ryan Anderson again. Guys are getting too sucked into the lane

Jody Genessy

This just in: Ryan Anderson can shoot.

Tony Jones

Quin is heated. The Jazz completely lost Ryan Anderson in defensive transition. I'd imagine that was a point of emphasis before the game

Tony Jones

Jimmer for two. Nice pull up jumper by the former BYU star

Tony Jones

This is a 7-0 Jazz run

Tony Jones

And then Alec Burks for two and the foul. Nice answer to the New Orleans run by the Jazz

Tony Jones

Consecutive dunks by Dante Exum

Tony Jones

The Jazz have struggled to get stops without Rudy Gobert on the floor

Jody Genessy

Enes Kanter is flustered. That happens too easily for him.

David Locke

Pelicans are 4th best at taking care of the ball. Jazz are 5th worst at forcing turnovers. So Pels turned it over 9 times in 1st q

Tony Jones

Quick 6-2 run by New Orleans and Quin Snyder calls timeout....Jazz lead trimmed to 28-26

Aaron Falk

Trey 5/5 & hitting from the Superdome. Jazz benefiting from some early turnovers before catching the bug themselves. Utah up 26-20 after 1.

Tony Jones

Kanter with the show, the go and the flush over Jeff Withey

Jody Genessy

Enes Kanter with a ferocious dunk.

David Locke

Jimmer misses wide open three to close quarter. Screams to the sky. Furious as he goes to bench. 1 for 11 from 3 this year #utaatnop

Tony Jones

Jazz lead 26-20 at the end of the first quarter. Trey Burke leads all scorers with 14 points

Tony Jones

Jimmer Fredette getting early minutes tonight.....

Jody Genessy

Trey Burke's season-high was 20 points — coincidentally against New Orleans in November. He has 14 in the first quarter.

Tony Jones

The Jazz are up 24-13....the crowd at Smoothie King Center is comatose, and a lot of this is because of the Jazz

David Locke

14 points in the 1st quarter by Trey Burke is the most points Trey has ever scored in a quarter #utaatnop

Tony Jones

Trey Burke has 14 points...the most he's scored in a quarter all season

Tony Jones

Jazz up 20-12 wit 4:02 remaining in the first quarter

Jody Genessy

Goodness gracious, Trey Burke is off to some start. Point guard already has 14 points in the first quarter.

Tony Jones

Trey Burke from the parking lot? Ok. Why not?

Tony Jones

Rudy Gobert making plays on the run? That's crazy

David Locke

Pelicians allow the most amount of shots in the retricted area. Jazz getting to the rim early. Lead it 13-6 #UTAatNOP

Tony Jones

Probably since the Oklahoma City game right before Thanksgiving....can they keep it up?

Jody Genessy

Jazz take a 13-6 lead. Pelicans take a timeout.

Tony Jones

This is the best offensive start the Jazz have had in awhile

Tony Jones

Trey has nine. Jrue Holiday better wake up. Burke is low-key torching him right now

Tony Jones

Quin Snyder really extorting his team to push the ball

Tony Jones

Jazz up 9-6 early....

Tony Jones

Trey Burke has seven points already. Great start for him

Jody Genessy

I'm bummed actor @WendellPierce isn't sitting behind press row to give me grief about Utah taking the Jazz name away from New Orleans.

Tony Jones

Here comes tip-off in New Orleans!!!

Jody Genessy

Injured C Derrick Favors (ankle) and G Toure' Murry are on the inactive list for the Jazz. G Patrick Christopher dresses for first time.

Tony Jones

Pat Christopher is active for the first time tonight. Toure' Murry has been placed on the inactive list

David Locke

Aaron Falk

Amazing. MT @Jody Genessy I couldn't resist asking The Jimmer about @JimboRudding's relentless efforts. Fredette: "I definitely see them."

Aaron Falk

I won't be able to do Evan Fournier's Rudy Gobert impressions justice in the story I'm working on, so here you go. soundcloud.com/aaronfalk/evan…

If you haven't seen @JimboRudding's attempts at getting a retweet from Jimmer Fredette, you're missing some very funny—and some odd—tweets.

Jazz activate Patrick Christopher and Jazz have made Toure' Murry and Derrick Favors #UTAatNOP

Jody Genessy

Curious. Is Bringham Young University in the state of New Pork? #UTAatNOP #BYU http://t.co/nyquVTA4RC

Tony Jones

This will be the second consecutive game favors has missed with the sprained ankle

Tony Jones

Rudy gobert will start in place of favors

David Locke

Derrick Favors will not play tonight. Rudy Gobert will start #utaatnop

Jody Genessy

Rudy Gobert will get his second start in a row for the injured Derrick Favors (ankle).

Tony Jones

Derrick favors has been ruled OUT for tonight against New Orleans with a sprained ankle

Jody Genessy

Derrick Favors will not play tonight at New Orleans.

David Locke

Steve Novak and Jimmer Fredette share a pre game chat instagram.com/p/wr4Ul0Brk0/

David Locke

GRIN when Autin Rivers, Tyreke Evans and Jimmer Fredette all use possessions well below league average #UTAatNOP

David Locke

CRINGE when Anthony Davis or Jeff Whitey shoot. Both use possessions well above league average

David Locke

Used to do feature on talk show called Cringe n Grin. Cringe when this player on opponent shoots and Grin when this player does. It returns

Jody Genessy

While I was growing up, Hot Rod Hundley was like a friend filling me in on all of the juicy details of a party I couldn't attend. Sad news.

Aaron Falk

Damn it. Hot Rod Hundley's girlfriend says “You wouldn’t be able to get a complete sentence out of him if you tried." deseretnews.com/article/865617…

Gordon Hayward on Ty Corbin getting a new head coach gig: "NBA, man. It’s weird how it works, huh? I’m happy for him. I hope he does well."

Jody Genessy

There's nothing behind the Deron Williams-to-Utah rumor. Jazz haven't discussed trading for the ex-Utah guard, and it won't happen. #sources

Enes Kanter

Bu kadar 'Kuruş'u seçenin arasında, Bize 'Duruş'u sergileyip yol gösterenleri bahşeden Allah 'a hamd-ü senalar olsun! http://t.co/yOBwKjWkXv

Jody Genessy

Derrick Favors on Ty Corbin's new job: "He’s a head coach. He’s a good dude. Hopefully, he can do a good job over there and keep the job."

Aaron Falk

Derrick Favors went through shootaround & is questionable for tonight, @Tony Jones reports. Pelicans' Anthony Davis is expected to play.

Tony Jones

Quin Snyder said Mike Malone's sudden firing in Sacramento was surprising

Joe Ingles

Good photo with your iPhone 1S. RT @Steve Novak: Apparently this is how Aussies roll?! @Joe Ingles @Dante Exum http://t.co/JhUT4t562m

Tony Jones

If Favors can't play tonight, Quin Snyder will start Rudy Gobert in his place

Steve Novak

Apparently this is how Aussies roll?! @Joe Ingles @Dante Exum http://t.co/FaMFXKHieK

Tony Jones

Favors went through all the running and cutting in shootaround, which is a good sign. Ankle was heavily taped
