Sad Moment in Jazz HistoryGilbert's Buzzer-Beater...
Some good stuff from KG hating to Paul Pierce's old man game that was killing them. Of course there are the Tommy haters. Funny that they hate on Tommy for being a homer, but when I watch other teams' announcers it seems that they are just as much homers, as they should be. And of course they hate on their own players... Al, Mo, Foye. Enjoy today's CFTOS.
The Jazz hold a slight 46-44 lead over the Celtics at the half behind 10 points each from Derrick Favors and Paul Millsap. The Jazz have dominated the paint, but have been held back by mediocre shooting and a lack of dynamic ball movement. Most of the Jazz’ baskets have come on offensive rebounds, post [...]

While most of the discussion about Big Al related to Jeff Green's monster dunk on him, Jefferson scored 13 points and grabbed 14 rebounds against the Celtics, and Doc Rivers highly touted his former player:
"He just keeps getting better and...
The Washington Wizards had the perfect opportunity for a first victory, facing a struggling and tired Utah Jazz team ready to go home after nearly a week on the road.
Instead, the night ended with another demoralizing loss that turned awkward and surreal in the final minute - when the home crowd started cheering wildly for a chicken sandwich giveaway.
The Jazz pulled away in the...

They call him "Big Al" but on this particular play during last night's Celtics-Jazz game, Al Jefferson was reduced to "Little Al" by Jeff Green.

PHILADELPHIA - The best way to give his team a shot in the arm, Jrue Holiday figured, was simply to make a shot. Holiday nailed his first four shots Friday night, and scored 18 of his 26 points in the first half, propelling the Sixers to a 99-93 victory over the Utah Jazz. Holiday also notched six points in the last 4:11, as the Sixers (5-4) kept the Jazz at bay to end a two...

The pre-Jerry Sloan Jazz were no pretty sight. Coach Tom Nissalke’s team was bad right from the stretch: Utah dropped its first four games, losing the first by 16, the second by 31, and the third by another 15 points. The team would finish 2-18 in the month of October, with the only victories coming at the expense...

Here are some key points that made the Celtics receive their third consecutive victory...
Kevin Garnett whips a cross-court pass to Jeff Green in the weak-side corner. Green gives a slight up-fake and takes off down the lane. Now it’s time to go all-in or get shut down. Let’s go all in. Green has Al Jefferson directly in front of him with Paul Millsap and Derrick Favors surrounding him. [...]
