Utah Jazz: Halfway Point

Just as we thought going into the season, the Utah Jazz (14-27) are far outside the playoff picture. On Sunday, they finished the first half of the season with a 69-89 loss in San Antonio.  There is obvious room for improvement on both ends of the court. One area of improvement is in the win/loss column. The jazz clearly need to win more…or do they? What brings more value to a...

But if your Houston’s Josh Smith, you just get the ball and cram it down Utah’s Rudy Gobert’s throat. Check out J-Smoove getting revenge...
