December 9th, 2013 | by Andy Larsen
1. Surprisingly subversive tweets from Jazz players and parents tonight. With the frontcourt of Richard Jefferson, Mike Harris, and Andris Biedrins starting the 4th quarter tonight, Alec Burks not getting playing time in crunch...

With another 10 games in the books, the Jazz now close in on the quarter point of their 2013-14 season. And while no team is the exact same from one ten-game span to another, the Jazz may have seen some of the largest changes...

Checking the Metronome

December 5th, 2013 | by Dan Clayton
The new era of Jazz basketball is a quarter-season old following Utah’s Wednesday night loss to the league’s best team, so any attempt to discern the identity of this squad is probably a bit premature. Still, I can...

December 4th, 2013 | by Andy Larsen
1. Indiana’s defense, designed to force mid-range shots, did so by minimizing scrambling rotations.  Perhaps the main ingredient to Indiana’s defensive success is how they discourage teams from taking high-efficiency...

Diante Garrett: Helping the Jazz

December 4th, 2013 | by David J Smith
A few weeks ago, the point guard situation for the Utah Jazz was dire. Rookie Trey Burke was out with a fractured finger and the veteran duo of Jamaal Tinsley and John Lucas III were not cutting it (and that may be being a bit...

What A Difference A PG Makes

December 3rd, 2013 | by Laura Thompson
It’s amazing what a difference a point guard makes. Since Trey Burke has been in the starting lineup, the Jazz are 3-2. But what’s even more incredible is how quickly this looks much more like a team that knows how to play...

Two Bigs, Ten Games, Opposite Trajectories

November 30th, 2013 | by Clint Johnson
Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter are the core duo to the Jazz’s grand design. One an athletic marvel and defensive game changer; the other an irresistible force with the polished offense of a cowhide prodigy — an anchor in...

The Triple Team: Three Thoughts on Jazz vs. Suns 11/29/2013

November 29th, 2013 | by Andy Larsen
1. Jazz allowed Suns to get what they wanted offensively. The Jazz are again not getting it done defensively, a major disappointment for a team that wanted its calling card to be paint protection. I asked Corbin what went wrong...
