The Triple Team: Three Thoughts on Jazz vs. Heat 12/17/14

1. Jazz got out to a great start! As everyone knows, the Jazz have had many slow starts this season, falling routinely behind by double digits in the first quarter. Tonight against the Heat, they were immediately hot, especially...

1. This is the story of the Jazz’s season: They give up a lead in the 1st half, fight back in the 2nd, but lose the game. Here’s tonight’s quarter by quarter breakdown:            ...

1. Jazz avoid ignominy, first 10 game losing streak in 33 years.  Had the Jazz lost tonight, it would have been the team’s first double-digit losing streak since the 1981-82 season. However, the 9 game streak is only their...

1. Sacramento’s Rudy G proved a lot Monday.   Rudy Gay is stepping up in a major way. His reputation has been well known around the NBA: an inefficient gunner who will put points on the board while offering very little...

1. Bad Jazz defense despite slow pace. In a game where both teams score under 100 points, it’s tempting to say that the real culprit in a loss was the offense. After all, 93 points doesn’t look like a particularly...

1. Jazz defense was under-aggressive under an elite Raptors offense. This is by now somewhat of a broken record: the Jazz’s interestingly poor defense cost them another game. In this one, the Raptors shot 57% from the...

1. It wasn’t a “WAKE UP” yell, but Snyder finally got through to his players.  Probably most of the stories will tell this game as a tale of two halves: the Nuggets performance in the 1st half was just good...

1. Jazz are really struggling at all phases right now. This is relatively obvious: they’ve lost 5 games in a row. But they’re doing so in really discouraging ways. Consider, over the last 5 games, the following two...

1. The Jazz were bullied by a less talented team. Going into the night, Oklahoma City had won only 3 of 13 games, including dropping six straight – ample time to learn how little chance they have of out-talenting other NBA...

1. Shot luck hurt the Jazz tonight in the final minute. It’s funny: the Jazz have had 3 buzzer-beating opportunities this far in the season, and the best look of the three was probably tonight’s Hayward 3 point shot....
