The Triple Team: Three Thoughts on Jazz vs. Suns 10/24/2014

October 24th, 2014 | by Andy Larsen
1. Utah lost the battle of pace. This was going to be an interesting test for the Jazz, as they put their (thus far) wildly improved transition defense against the speed attack of the Phoenix Suns. It didn’t work out as...

I don’t think any Jazz fan likes seeing a loss to the Lakers, but there were some very encouraging moments from last night’s game. 1. The asterisk. Though technically a loss, I think this game has an asterisk next to the...

For all the talk about how we as fans had to temper our expectations after a 4-0 start in the preseason, I think last night showed that much of what we’ve seen so far may translate to the regular season, because that certainly...

1. The young Jazz came out of the fire alive. And perhaps a bit more seasoned, too. The first test came in the 1st quarter, when an experienced Clipper defense forced the Jazz into their 3rd and 4th options in sets, leading to...

1. The Jazz’s excellent defense gave them the win in their first preseason game. The Jazz did well at virtually all facets of defense tonight, implementing their new-look scheme quite well. They allowed Portland just 73...

The Triple Team: Three Thoughts on the Jazz’s Open Scrimmage

October 6th, 2014 | by Andy Larsen
1. This was a lower-key scrimmage than most in the past. This was probably the least important of the Jazz’s preseason open scrimmages in several years, for some really understandable reasons. First, the Jazz already ran a...

1. The Jazz won this game with defense. After impressing local and national observers alike on Monday night with their stellar offensive performance, tonight the Jazz won via their defensive play. The Nuggets were held to just...

1. Rudy Gobert! Normally, I wouldn’t actually start an article simply by exclaiming a player’s name. But what is summer league about if not for outrageous optimism over player performances? Rudy Gobert was simply...

July 12th, 2014 | by Andy Larsen
1. The Jazz took this game seriously: Burke/Exum/Hood/Thomas/Gobert started the game. Utah has seven players with an NBA contract on this year’s summer league roster, and tonight the Jazz started 5 of those 7 in what is...

The Triple Team: Three Thoughts on the Jazz’s Open Summer League Practice

1. Wow, Jazz fans are incredible. Hours before the event began, people began lining up outside the doors of EnergySolutions Arena en masse for the Jazz’s open summer league practice. As the doors opened at 6 PM, 1 hour...
