Revenge Against The Dubs   Leave a comment

The Jazz improved their current winning streak to 9 games, holding off both the Warriors (in Golden State) and the Rockets (in Utah).

The Warriors game featured a huge performance from the bench, as ‘Sap, Korver & AK each hit double-digits, joining starters Booze, Brewer & Okur. While Deron wasn’t feeling it (3-12, 6 points), he countered by dishing off 20 assists… 2 less than the Warriors team as a whole. Meanwhile, CJ struggled yet again. Speaking of Deron, here’s one of his assists from the game.

While the Jazz didn’t start too well, a solid 4th quarter carried them against the Warriors. This includes being outscored in the 3rd quarter…

Speaking of the Dubs, Corey Maggette & Jamal Crawford had huge games. So did Anthony Randolph, the latest to go off on the Jazz. That’s not acceptable. Oh, and more on Randolph. Though that ‘block’ on Booze was actually a goaltending violation that wasn’t called.

Brewer = amazing! His jumper might not be what you’d want from a normal SG, but given this offense, he’s a perfect fit. And he’s been playing at an amazing level as of late.

More Deron… he has a ways to go before catching up with Stockton in most categories, and this is no exception.

Quick Hits   Leave a comment

Just some quick hits while I try to recover from an anatomy test (and the lack of sleep that came with it)…

  • HOF finalists include 2 of our own… John Stockton and J-Slow. And many other famous names.
  • Do (or did) the Rockets have interest in Booze? Don’t they already have enough injury-prone guys?
  • I’ve joined the twittering crowd. Not solely Jazz related, but there’s some stuff there. Kyle Korver is also on Twitter… don’t know about the rest of the team. He doesn’t update much though.
  • No real Jazz rumors as the deadline approaches… kinda sad. Makes the weekend a bore too.
  • The Popularity Game takes place tonight or tomorrow or something… I really have no idea. And I don’t really care.
  • Nate Robinson won the Slam Dunk Contest by jumping over a person to dunk it. Déja vu?
  • Elsewhere… Terry Porter might be fired. John Paxson might step down. Vinsanity might be on the move. Amar’e feels slighted by the trade rumors. The Cavs are trying to add a big. AI got a hair cut. A-Rod cheated and pitchers reported for Spring Training… sorry, wrong sport.

Raptors Come To ESA With New Coach   2 comments

The Jazz host the Raptors tonight, in a late start game at 8:30 PM MST. The Jazz are coming off of a loss to the Heat at home, one that dropped their record against the Eastern Conference to a miserable 2-7, including a sad 1-3 at home. The Raptors are 8-9, coming off 2 straight losses on their Western Conference road swing (@ the Kobes, @ Denver).

Links & Things & stuff like that…

  • AK should be back tonight. Finally! God, this is almost as good as getting Deron back. Maybe even better, given how the last couple of games have gone. With “last couple” being a huge understatement.
  • The Raptors will be welcoming new coach Jay Triano. It seems he was once attempting to make the Jazz, but lost out to some John Stockton dude.

Jerry Sloan Needs To Decide.   Leave a comment

Gordon Monson, a writer for the SL Trib that I rarely agree with, has written a piece for today’s paper in which he states that Jerry Sloan needs to make up his mind, not just for this year, but for years to come. And this time, I agree with him.

Why Can’t J-Slo…   Leave a comment

… be like Greg Popovich?

I mean… just look at the title of the article. “Popovich has had starring role in Spurs’ successes.”
As for J-Slo… what Jazz successes? They’ve been close, but a push here and games in San Antonio there have kept the Jazz title-less. Popovich has titles. Plenty of them.

Welcome.   Leave a comment

Well, I’ve given it time & a lot of thought. And in the end, I’ve come to the conclusion that I should just focus on blogging about the Utah Jazz. I tried blogging about the Pirates & the Panthers & the Bees and all, but it really isn’t working. The Pirates & Panthers are hard because I don’t live in Pittsburgh or Carolina (in fact, I’ve never been to either place), so everything I mention comes from opinions formed by reading other blogs. I don’t really know enough about what’s going on to blog about it though. On the other hand, living in Utah (and having lived here my whole life), I’ve grown up a Jazz fan. Which makes it a lot easier.

I grew up watching the John Stockton & Karl Malone duo, along with Jeff Hornacek, Bryon Russell, Greg Ostertag and others. I watched the miraculous three by Stockton against the Rockets. I watched Michael Jordan push off. I watched as a team led by a bunch of nobodies won 41 games. I watched as the team struggled to the #6 pick, which was traded for Deron Williams. And I’ve watched the team come back. I’ve grown up with this team.

Plus, with the recent changes to Our Utah Jazz (new name, same site) & SLC Dunk (new name, new site, same BBJ… I think), I figured… why not? Given that I was only good for a couple of baseball posts (opening week, trade deadline) & even fewer football posts (the draft), why not go and focus on the Jazz (when I’m not fretting about classes)?

So here I am. I’m going to move a couple of Jazz posts over from Biased Fan (ones that I like), and then we’ll start fresh.

Go Jazz!!!
