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...

The Triple Team: Three Thoughts on Jazz vs. Raptors 12/3/2014

December 3rd, 2014 | by Andy Larsen
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....

November 22nd, 2014 | by Andy Larsen
1. The Jazz continue to be blasted in the possession battle. Tonight, the Jazz had 22 fewer shots than the Pelicans, so despite holding the Pelicans to a lower shooting percentage than their own, they got beaten pretty easily in...
