The Triple Team: Three Thoughts on Jazz vs. Pistons 3/24/2014

1. Everyone agrees the Jazz didn’t bring effort tonight. But is that all that occurred? The official topic of discussion for this game is that the Jazz, for whatever reason, didn’t bring the effort tonight. Here are...

1. Trey Burke gets the credit for the game winner, but Gordon Hayward was the one who won the game for the Jazz. Trying to get themselves out of a 3 point deficit while being out of timeouts with 20 seconds left, the Jazz had...

1. Jazz’s turnovers gave them no chance in an otherwise great performance. The Jazz did so much well in this game. They shot well from 3, at a 50% clip. They won the battle of paint points, 44-32. They won the rebounding...

1. The Mavs made their shots, the Jazz missed them. Around EnergySolutions Arena, you hear it a lot: the NBA is a make or miss league. Tonight’s Dallas game was perhaps the perfect example of that:   The Jazz actually...

1. Former Jazz players got the best of their old team. Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, and DeMarre Carroll combined for 60 points and 9 for 13 shooting from 3 point land in their return against the Jazz. Despite the 3 point barrage,...

1. With Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe, and Leandro Barbosa out, the Suns are a pretty easy team to defend. Without those three guys, they really don’t have anyone who can excel coming off the pick and roll and begin forcing...

1. As Favors’ returns, so does the Jazz’s interior defense. And it’s not a coincidence: Favors is essentially Utah’s defensive plan at this point. Of course, the Jazz are 0-9 with him out of the lineup,...

1. Kevin Love dominated tonight without much effort.  Of course, the story of the game in a Minnesota blowout is Kevin Love’s first triple-double of his career, a remarkable 37 point, 12 rebound, 10 assist performance (in...

1. Gordon Hayward’s up-and-down season continues. Hayward was coming off a 3-17 performance against the Philadelphia 76ers last Wednesday, that was naturally overshadowed by a win. After a loss, naturally the players get...

1. Alec Burks’ performance won the game for the Jazz. The game was tied at 91-91 when Alec Burks went on his own 9-0 run to get Utah the 100-91 lead that would withstand a Philadelphia run. To be honest, it was relatively...
