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...

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...
