It’s a little late, but I wanted to preserve a few things for posterity. The third quarter of this game was a thing of beauty–may all teams coming into Salt Lake be on the second night of a back-to-back. Regardless of a worn-out opponent, there were a lot of things to like. I’ve included a few of them below:

It was a night for the newcomers: Marvin and Mo Williams each scored 21 points and hit two 3s, Randy Foye hit two of his own, and rookie Kevin Murphy scored his first NBA points. Jerry Sloan was in the crowd and all seemed right with the world on a warm Halloween night.

Paul Millsap, PF 33 MIN | 5-12 FG | 3-4 FT | 15 REB | 3 AST | 13 PTS | +18
Gordon Hayward, SF 24 MIN | 4-10 FG | 3-5 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 11 PTS | +1
Al Jefferson, C 29 MIN | 4-11 FG | 4-4 FT | 14 REB | 2 AST | 12 PTS | +8

Kevin Murphy, SG 2 MIN | 1-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 2 PTS | -1

It was very cool to hear Kevin Murphy describe how it felt to score his first points in a real NBA game: “I’ve been dreaming about this day since I was six.”

  1. One thing that I have noticed is that with Mo at the point, Big Al and Milly have not been getting plenty of touches. That’s quite disturbing considering that last season they both carried the Jazz to the playoffs.
