The Young Jazz With An Old Soul

They start two traditional big men, they don't take a lot of 3's (25th in the league) and they score a lot in isolations (29th in the league in assists). They win by suffocating teams with halfcourt defense and keeping them out of transition (2nd slowest pace in the league). Everyone wants to play...

The week that was Tuesday night they fought hard but barely...

Jazz need to quit with the niceties and start winning

“Good effort tonight.” “Way to fight.” “A good loss.” “They hung in with them the whole game.” Just a few examples of phrases that might have been reassuring and appropriate for the Utah Jazz team of two years ago, but that need to stop now. Following the Jazz’s back to back losses to two strong Eastern Conference squads in the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat...

Trey Burke, Utah Jazz proving doubters wrong

When Dante Exum went down with an ACL injury over the summer, it was immediately assumed that Trey Burke would have to step up in his absence to help carry the Utah Jazz to new heights this season. It may have come as a surprise then when Raul Neto was announced as the Jazz’s starting point guard while Burke was assigned a bench role. Despite coming off the bench as part of the...
