TEAMS: Utah Jazz
It can be dangerous to watch a game in enemy territory. It's not unusual to see fans get into it with other fans at football stadiums and baseball parks. At basketball arenas though--at least the one the Utah Jazz play in for 41 games each season--you have to watch out for the mascot.Jazz Bear has been known to mess with fans of the opposing team often taking it far enough that the person(s) get pretty angry--a  lot like this guy.I can't imagine this kind of thing is real. No employer in his right mind would be okay with someone antagonizing people to the point of violence.Real or not it is still pretty funny--and that guy is an idiot for wasting a domestic beer he spent way too much money on.

Derrick Favors’ offense starting to catch up to his defense

Derrick Favors’ defense earned him the payday. The Utah Jazz made no bones about that in October, when they signed the fourth-year big man to a four-year, $49 million extension. As general manager Dennis Lindsey tries to build a winner in Salt Lake City, Favors, a 6-foot-10, athletic rim protector, was to be the anchor of his defense. So when questions about the other half of...

Utah Jazz Bear gets even with Rockets fan who pours beer on him

We all know that sometimes NBA mascots behave badly but the below clip of the Utah Jazz mascot “Bear” was pretty justified by his reaction. During the Jazz match-up with the Houston Rockets on Monday, “The Bear” decided to shoot some silly string on Rockets fans attending the game in Utah. In the process, one of the Rockets fans decided to dump some of the beer on the Bear’s...

Return of Trey Burke boosts Utah

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By MATTHEW COLES Associated Press During the first 14 games of the season, Utah's offense was often politely described as sputtering and disjointed. Over the last six games, Jazz players and opponents have started using words like rhythm and flow. The biggest difference is often the smallest guy on the court: Trey Burke. The season started with Utah&...

Jazz missing 2 starters for game against Kings

Forwards Derrick Favors and Marvin Williams have been ruled out for Utah's game against the Sacramento Kings. Favors has a sore lower back and Williams will miss his second straight game with inflammation in his right foot. Favors started each of the Jazz's first 21 games at forward or center. He is averaging 13.5 points and a team-high 9.5 rebounds. Williams started the...

Key Matchup: Utah Jazz @ Portland Trail Blazers

Because this season cannot be measured by wins and losses, I have decided it’s beneficial to focus in on key match ups this year.  As this has been dubbed a “season of discovery”, this helps us judge improvement as the season progresses.  By doing so we won’t get as disappointed when we lose as many games as we could lose.  The match up for the Utah Jazz  game tonight...

Morning Shootaround: Better, not better

Burke makes Jazz better, not that better Trail Blazers 130, Jazz 98 The Utah Jazz are an abysmal 4-16 entering Thursday's game. They are 1-9 on the road. Yet things have looked up the past few weeks. Trey Burke made his season debut Nov. 20 and made an immediate impact for the team. Utah is 3-5 and won three of the five previous games entering Friday's game at Portland...

Jazz Lose 95-86 to Pacers, and That’s Okay

The Indiana Pacers are arguably the best team in the NBA right now. The Utah Jazz, until the last week or so, were the worst team. Even at home, this should have been a bloodbath, right? I scored a lower-bowl ticket from a friend of mine, and here were some things I was able to observe up close: - Roy Hibbert is an impressive specimen. Even if his stats looked average for the game...
