I just think that everyone should know that we on the Jazz beat (@Ryan Miller @Andy Larsen @Eric Walden) listen to a song w/saxophone in it after home games in the writing room. We do it because Eric has some horrid sax takes & the other 3 of us love the sax. We have a playlist. – 1:41 AM

The Triple Team! 3 thoughts on
1. The Jazz made better individual perimeter defensive efforts tonight, and it made all the difference.
2. Trent Forrest, I thought, played the best defense. (Of non-Gobert’s, anyway)
3. Revealing 4 games coming up

DeMarcus Cousins has been dealing with a lingering calf issue, I’m told, which is why he didn’t play tonight even though he was in uniform and active. His Nuggets debut likely comes Sunday vs. Detroit. – 1:07 AM

Rudy Gobert on the Utah Jazz’s defense: “Everyone who came in was playing with intensity. We raised our level. We communicated. We competed. … The same mistakes didn’t happen twice.” – 12:55 AM

Mike Conley said while the Jazz aren’t going to look to post Rudy up, if he gets a great seal and is turned to a finishing position, they are looking to feed him in those situations. Said he’s become enough of a threat as to get defenders cheating on those that they get open 3s. – 12:27 AM

Bojan said that with more teams switching 1-5 against them, they’re “trying to put the ball in [Rudy’s] hands.” Said that Gobert is doing a better job of sealing defenders behind him, and the Jazz have added more set plays to try and feed him the ball in those situations. – 12:04 AM

Cunningham on the free throw disparity: “It’s like coach said in the locker room, we’re reaching too much, fouling too much. A lot of times we do a good job staying in-between the ball and the rim, but we bail out guys reaching. We’re putting guys on the line too much.” – 11:50 PM

FINAL: Jazz 111, Pistons 101. It took some doing, but Utah manages a split vs. Detroit and gets back in the W column (now 30-16). Rudy Gobert 24/14/4b. Bogdanovic 23/6r. Clarkson 20/4r. Conley 19/4/4. Up next: Huuuuge road trip at Warriors and Suns. – 11:31 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Okay, I’m convinced: Jazz are going to win this one. Gobert had a very good game offensively, Bogdanovic scored efficiently, and Conley had some really big plays late. Pistons a little shambolic, but the Jazz will take it. – 11:29 PM

That Conley layup might do it. Jazz up by six with 59.7 seconds left.

Utah leads detroit 60-52 at halftime. The Jazz were ok. They’ve done some good things and not so good things. Cade Cunningham has dominated so that’s not good, he just doesn’t have any help at this point. The Jazz can end this with a good third quarter – 10:10 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
HALFTIME: Jazz 60, Pistons 52. Defensive miscue there to end 2Q that led to a Gobert dunk.
Cade Cunningham: 17 points (7-11 FG)
Rodney McGruder: 9 points
Trey Lyles: 8 points – 10:10 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Terrific play at the end of the half to put the Jazz up 60-52 on Detroit. Ingles is getting worse in a multitude of ways, but he absolutely still has valuable playmaking and passing ability. – 10:10 PM

Quin said he’d love to get Eric Paschall some more minutes, and noted he deserves to play, but said he felt like they need to have a traditional rolling big as much as possible (hence the Dok minutes vs. Houston), and wants to get Rudy Gay settled at the 4, so it’s hard. – 7:35 PM
