The Triple Team! 3 thoughts on
1. Jazz — sans Gobert and Mitchell — just couldn’t deal with how well the Grizzlies operate as a team.
2. A need to add ball-handling to the second unit
3. Lessons from the Grizzlies’ approach to the draft

Jaren says that the Grizzlies are trying to catch Golden State and Phoenix but the main focus is simply to just win every game. – 11:05 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jaren thinks it is “really cool to see…” that Ja Morant was named an All-Star Starter. JJJ knows the work that Ja puts in and is very happy for “All-Star 12”. Jaren also compared himself to Paul Revere (“that dude” in JJJ’s words) when it came to the Ja pregame team shoutout. – 11:03 PM

Brandon Clarke said he wasn’t surprised that Ja Morant got selected yesterday because of the season he had. He also called Morant the best point guard in the West.

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Mike Conley said that while the outcomes aren’t what the Jazz want right now, he does feel like there’s a competitive fire to the team that wasn’t there 3 weeks ago. Said he’s seen progress in areas, and believes they’re close to breaking through and winning some of these games. – 10:52 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Ja Morant said he was locked in during the game when a tribute All-Star video was played in the first quarter. And don’t expect any let up from 12.
“I was the same Ja before the announcement was made. Go out and prove myself.” – 10:51 PM

Ja Morant: “All-in-all, a good night”

Mike Conley on the non-calls: “It’s always one of the things I wonder if I’m more of a guy that gets techs and argues a lot maybe I get more respect in that manner. For me, it just seems pretty A to B, like you should be able to make the easy call.” – 10:46 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Mike Conley: “No moral victories but we feel like we’re getting closer and closer to being back to who we are. I think this time is gonna make us tougher and stronger mentally. Especially when we get Donovan and Rudy and everybody back.” – 10:45 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Mike Conley: “We’re playing with a much more urgent mindset and playing harder; guys are given everything they got with who we have out there. At some point we’re going to break through, and things are going to start falling our way.” – 10:44 PM

The Denver Nuggets are not playing perfect basketball by any means, but stacking wins in late January before the All-Star break could become very impactful once playoff seeding begins to solidify.
For instance, with the Jazz loss tonight, Denver is one loss behind the 4th seed. – 10:38 PM

FINAL: Grizz 119, Jazz 109. Just not quite enough defense to stop the Ja Morant show down the stretch, and the offense came way too hard. House 21p for the Jazz; Conley 15p, 6a; Morant 30/10/10 for Memphis. Utah has lost 10 of 12 now. In Minnesota on Sunday. – 10:22 PM

Memphis wins 119-109.
Danuel House leads the Jazz with 21 p.
Conley: 15p/6a, and the Jazz were +13 in his 30 min, -23 in the other 18 min.
Rough games for Bogdanovic and Clarkson, who scored 13 each on 5-16 and 4-13 shooting, respectively.
Shorthanded Jazz 0-4 vs. the gauntlet. – 10:22 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
And that’s it. The Jazz fall to Memphis 119-109. Good effort from Utah in this one. The Jazz played well enough that not having Gobert and Mitchell was the difference and that’s a good thing. Utah falls to 30-20 on the season. They have lost 10 of 12. On to Minneapolis – 10:22 PM

I suspect you could play Jared Butler instead of Clarkson and get most of the pluses without many of the minuses — but also understand why it may not be prudent to do that pre-deadline – 9:51 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Quin Snyder talked before the game about how the @Utah Jazz defensive rating drops from first in the NBA with a traditional center on the floor to 30th when they play small.

These are the types of games where I understand Jazz fans gripes about not seeing more Jared Butler.
Trent Forrest isn’t creating offense, so Clarkson carries too big of a load, and the offense collapses.

Better 2nd qtr for the Grizzlies when it comes to points in the pace and tempo. Grizz had 12pts inside in the 1st and then 20 in the 2nd qtr. Then w/ fast break, Grizz had 6 in the 1st qtr and then 12 in the 2nd. – 9:15 PM

HALFTIME: Grizz 59, Jazz 51. Memphis went on an 18-2 run in 2Q as Utah struggled to score. Bogey is 2-8 for 5p, Mike is scoreless on 0-3. Honestly, House and Paschall have been their two most aggressive offensive players, and they have 14 and 10p, respectively. Morant has 16/8/3. – 9:10 PM

Mike Conley didn’t want to be on the next Ja Morant poster block. Who can blame him?
But it forced him to miss the layup. – 9:04 PM

Great play from Steven Adams to throw the ball off of a Utah player on his way out of bounds! – 9:03 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Scary moment when it looked Ja Morant might have hurt his ankle. Ja Morant got up and laced his shoes tight. Then went to the FT line to “M-V-P chants” and knocked down both free throws. Then 2 possessions later, he made a three-pointer! #NBAAllStar9:03 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Well, it’s now a 18-2 run for the Grizzlies, as the Jazz can’t figure out how to score without Mitchell, now struggling without a traditional center, and keep getting killed in transition. – 9:03 PM

Yep, Ja Morant is good. Phew. – 9:01 PM

Ja Morant rolled his ankle and is walking a little gingerly. He re-tied his shoes before going to shoot free throws. Crowd is chanting MVP. – 9:00 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Ja Morant tripped over Paschall on that drive, grimaced in pain. He took a seat courtside for a minute to tighten up his shoelace. Looks a little tentative. – 9:00 PM

Ja Morant’s left shoe came loose on his way to the bucket. He came away limping, but is headed to the free throw line after taking a beat and re-tying his shoe. – 9:00 PM

Jazz with turnovers each of their past two possessions, and the Grizz turned them into 5 points with a JJJ hook and a Bane 3. Quick timeout from Quin looking to get things settled. 46-42 Memphis with 6:23 until halftime. – 8:54 PM

Rough night for calls tonight. The Ja foul (didn’t touch him) Jaren had his arm pulled and fell no call. Oh and the T on Jaren for asking why it was a foul earlier. Ok Memphis Vs Errrbody – 8:51 PM

Good assist from Bane & nice back door cut for the Alley oop for Jitty! – 8:50 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
The rims have not been kind to Memphis in this first half. They’ve missed several bunnies.
Combine that with hot shooting from short-handed Utah, and they trail by one mid second quarter. – 8:48 PM

End 1Q: Grizz 31, Jazz 30. Energetic opening period from both teams, lots of 3-point shooting, lots of FTs (19 attempts between the teams). Morant with 7p, 5r, 3a for Memphis, Jazz led by 8p from House, 6p from Royce … 4r by Joe??? – 8:41 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Grizzlies up 31-30 at the end of the 1Q. It’s Danuel House, Jr who leads the Jazz in scoring with 8. But transition defense and too many fouls has hurt the Jazz on the other end. – 8:40 PM
Memphis Grizzlies @memgrizz
+1 after the first stanza.
15 points from the bench.

End of the first in memphis. The Jazz trail the Grizzlies 31-30….Danuel House with 8 off the bench. Eric Paschall once again productive. The Jazz are having issues with the length and athleticism memphis throws at them but they played well offensively – 8:40 PM

3:11 remaining in the first quarter. The Jazz trail the Grizzlies 23-19 – 8:31 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
It becomes incredibly obvious how little length the azz have when they do end up playing teams like Memphis who have it in droves.
Also why a guy like Robert Covington would be intriguing at the deadline. – 8:30 PM

Jazz start the game doing what Quin stressed beforehand — extra passing, aggressive shooting. They’re 3-6 from deep and lead 13-9with 6:39 left 1Q. Defensively, still a few communication issues, particularly in transition. – 8:20 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
6:39 remaining in the first quarter. The Jazz lead the Grizzlies 13-9…..big difference so far is the Jazz making threes…. – 8:20 PM
