Some notes in my latest Running Thoughts:
– How Portland has not been favorable to Pacers
– Haliburton sits out first game
– Lack of facilitator costly
– Mathurin hasn’t attempted a FT in 3 of 5 road games after getting to the line in every other game

Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson acknowledged being “super-upset” about not getting a foul call for being knocked out of the air on a dunk attempt Saturday vs. the Blazers, calling for referees to be subject to more “accountability.” sltrib.com/sports/jazz/20…12:47 PM

The Pistons play the Grizzlies today. Ivey and Morant are close thanks to Jaden’s mom, Notre Dame women’s coach (and former Grizz asst.) Niele.

Watched POR-UTA last night:
-Simons was great. He’s so good. Grant too.
-One of the best all-around Watford games yet. He’s interesting.
-Nurk = rock solid
-Jazz miss Conley. Offense needs an organizer.
-Vanderbilt remains awesome. Kessler is figuring stuff out very quickly. – 10:33 AM

“I just wanted to set the tone, be as aggressive as possible early on, let them know that we in this game and I’m going to do whatever it takes for us to win this game.” — @Anfernee Simons on.nba.com/3FoIZup2:46 AM
