The Utah Jazz have some big decisions (pun intended) to make going forward, but the unmatched depth of their frontcourt continues to pay dividends for the time being. In Toronto, Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson, and Derrick Favors basically made all the plays throughout an exhilarating triple-overtime marathon that saw 277 total points get scored. The madness began when Jefferson knocked down a game-tying three-point shot to knot the game at 104 with 2 seconds to go in regulation. Al was wide open for the shot, but for good reason — he was just 1-25 on career three-point attempts prior to this shot…
Note: Al Jefferson should probably sign with Toronto this offseason, as the Air Canada Center seems to bring him luck.
As you can see, the Jazz went big in order to incorporate all three of Jefferson, Favors, and Millsap down the stretch. While this may surprise some of you, Millsap has slowly transformed from a scrappy hustler into one of the more skilled and versatile fours in ...

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 [...]

TORONTO -- The second 3-pointer of Al Jefferson's NBA career bounced tantalizingly before dropping through the rim. It was the start of something big for the Utah Jazz. Jefferson was 1-for-25 from beyond the arc in his nine-year career when he made a 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation Monday to tie the game against the Toronto Raptors at 104-104, forcing overtime...
Jeff Green destroyed Al Jefferson with a monstrous, soul-crushing dunk on Wednesday night in Boston.
The Boston Celtics forward took a pass in the corner and drove to the hole where he elevated from the middle of the paint and just slammed one down on the Jazz big man. Green then stared down Jefferson for good measure, receiving a technical foul for taunting.
Not only did his teammates...

Halfway through the fourth quarter of the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics game, Jeff Green of the Celtics found some superhuman leaping abilities and applied them accordingly. Jeff drove down the lane and dunked over two defenders, but Al Jefferson was the one who ended up on a very life-sized poster. The dunk is an easy early season candidate for dunk of the year.
