Rockets-Jazz Preview

Utah Jazz – New Year, Same Result?

The 2014 off-season was a crazy one for the Utah Jazz.  The team parted ways with Head Coach Tyrone Corbin, and picked up Quin Snyder as his replacement.  The team let Gordon Hayward test the waters of free agency, only to match a max offer from the Charlotte Hornets.  They may have struck NBA gold when both Dante Exum and Rodney Hood fell to them in the draft.  And they parted...

Obscure NBA streaks on the line this season

In a few days, real NBA games will start, and there’s a lot on the line for everybody involved.

All Aboard The Utah Jazz Train

Breaking News: The Utah Jazz will NOT be making the playoffs. It’s true. You know it is. I would wager Greg Miller, Dennis Lindsey, and Quin Snyder know it’s true as well. In fact, I would say that is their plan. Sure they look good in the preseason, but they are not a playoff team. Go ahead and make those summer plans, you won’t need to change them. So should we still be...

2014-15 NBA Preview: Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz have a winning tradition, currently ranked fourth all-time in franchise win-loss percentage behind the obvious juggernauts of the Lakers, Celtics, and Spurs, but they suffered through a rebuilding season and a title, elusive even to Malone and Stockton, is far beyond the horizon. They were not content with being mired in mediocre and jettisoned all-star big men Jefferson...

What to Expect in Utah

We are now 2 days away from media day and 3 days away from NBA training camp. My favorite time of year.

Five Ways the Utah Jazz Have Improved

That 25-57 season is behind the Utah Jazz. It was a season of frustration, disappointment, tanking-not-tanking, a yeoman season to do what needed to be done to set up the franchise for the future. And so far, one thing they’ve done is get even younger. Lest we forget, Richard Jefferson was 3rd on the team in total minutes played last year. No one over 30 is going to crack the top...
