SALT LAKE CITY -- After pulling a no-show in the first half, the Utah Jazz's defense arrived in time to help them stay perfect at home. Backup power forward Derrick Favors hit three clutch free throws down the stretch, and center Al Jefferson scored 28 points as the Utah Jazz rallied to beat the Denver Nuggets 105-103 Monday night at EnergySolutions Arena. But it was Utah's defense down the stretch that sealed its sixth straight home win. Jazz wings Randy Foye and DeMarre Carroll prevented Denver guard Ty Lawson from getting off a game-tying attempt in the final 3.6 seconds, and time ran out on the Nuggets. "I knew they were going to try and get it to Ty Lawson or Gallo (Danilo Gallinari)," Carroll said. "When I saw Ty drive, I've been playing against him all summer, I knew he was going to try and make something happen and go to the goal. I just tried to collapse. He saw me and time ran out." After allowing Denver to shoot 73 percent and tak...

Despite a drastic difference in their home and road records, the Utah Jazz made the playoffs last season. It might not be as easy for them to return to the postseason if that trend continues.
The Jazz hope to turn things around away from home Wednesday night when they open a three-game trip looking to avoid a fourth straight road loss to the New Orleans Hornets.

I was hopeful, even on the second leg of a back-to-back, that the Denver Nuggets would be able to edge a win in Utah, but unfortunately a combination visible (read: bad) officiating, missed free throws, an ejection, poor decision-making, and the stomach flu propelled Utah to a 105-103 win over Denver. I’m going to get [...]The post Case of the Missed Free Throws; Utah Jazz Skirt...
The Denver Nuggets (8-6) will look for their fifth-straight victory tonight against the Utah Jazz (7-7), who are currently undefeated at home. Utah is coming off a disappointing loss in Sacramento on Saturday while Denver blew out New Orleans on Sunday. Denver beat Utah 104-84 on November 9.
Can Utah remain undefeated at home? AccuScore projections seem to think so. After 10,000...
Back on Tuesday, we featured a video of Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love scoring on a lucky fadeaway jump shot.
Earlier tonight, Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors somehow tipped in a bad pass from Earl Watson against the New Orleans Hornets for a bucket:
DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins reels in the offensive rebound and puts down the big dunk over the defending, Derrick Favors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=b53tx7MbwxE This big dunk came with about 2:30 seconds left in the 3rd quarter and put the Kings up 76-72. The jam was just two of Cousins 14 points on the night. He also chipped in with 9 rebounds...
The Bay area was definitely home to the best dunks on Saturday night. First their was Warriors forward Harrison Barnes dunk. But Kings DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins had his own highlight worthy moment on Utah Jazz’s Derrick Favors. Of course Cousins was later ejected from the game after receiving his second technical foul for having a [...]
