March 11th, 2014 | by Laura Thompson
Last night marked Paul Millsap’s first game in Utah since signing with the Atlanta Hawks in the offseason. Millsap was my favorite Jazz man for years, and I’m still not used to seeing him in the Atlanta jersey (seeing him in...

Should Trey Burke Shoot Less?

February 25th, 2014 | by Laura Thompson
In the 41 games since Trey Burke has been a starter, the Jazz are 19-22, for a 46% winning percentage. That’s obviously a significant increase over the Jazz’s record when Burke was injured. But as we’ve been hearing about...

What’s the Solution for a Slump?

January 28th, 2014 | by Laura Thompson

Utah’s Record After Blowout Losses

January 21st, 2014 | by Laura Thompson
I read a tweet this week that got me thinking. That made me curious: how did the Jazz respond after each one of these egg-laying losses? What is the team showing as far as toughness and resiliency after difficult losses? And is...

Trey Burke: Ice in His Veins

January 16th, 2014 | by Laura Thompson
Moxie. Swagger. Cool. Fearless. Calm. Patient. Composed. Confident. Poised. Ice. We’ve been hearing all sorts of adjectives to describe Trey Burke, especially his clutch, late-game play. After last night’s game—even though...
