1. LeBron James wasn’t himself tonight. LeBron James has had some of his biggest games in Salt Lake City. In 2006, he accumulated 51 points in a performance so sublime that the Jazz-supporting crowd gave him a standing...

1. Enes Kanter was pulled in favor of Rudy Gobert twice tonight. Coming off a performance in Los Angeles in which Enes Kanter led the Jazz in scoring, Raptors coach Dwane Casey built his game plan around preventing Enes Kanter...

1. The night belonged to Jerry Sloan. Yes, a game was played at EnergySolutions Arena Friday night, in front of a nationally-televised audience and a sellout crowd. But the game, especially in this season of non-contending, came...

1. Mike Malone has a bad defensive squad, and he knows it.  Ranked 28th in the league defensively, the Kings don’t exactly have a sterling reputation when it comes to defending the ball. Sacramento head coach Mike Malone...

1. The Jazz answered the Wizards’ two-big lineup with one of their own. The Jazz have had more success (i.e., more than 1 win in 15 games) since starting Marvin Williams at the 4, giving them a lineup with lots of shooting...

1. Alec Burks can score and amaze. Alec Burks was Utah’s best player tonight, scoring a career high 34 points in the 5th start of his career. First of all, he got the shots around the basket that he likes: 13 of his 19...

1. Jazz without Hayward… are they tanking?  The Jazz played without Gordon Hayward tonight, Hayward’s first DNP of the season. Hayward was ruled out due to a muscle strain in his left hip flexor. When I asked Ty...

1. GORDON HAYWARD FOR WORLD LEADER President isn’t enough for the man known as G-Time. Gordon Hayward was absolutely incredible for the Jazz tonight, scoring 37 points for the Jazz. That wasn’t enough for him, so he...

December 30th, 2013 | by Andy Larsen
1. Utah’s defense has the Bobcats offense figured out. Part of it may be the familiarity of Al Jefferson, but the Jazz have won the season series against Charlotte by defending the Bobcats much better than any other team in...

1. Derrick Favors’ first game winner, at any level, got the Jazz’s win tonight.  It seems hard to believe that this is Favors’ first game winner, given how many games he has played, and especially given his...
