Utah Jazz 108 - New Orleans Pelicans 100: Game Recap

Utah Jazz 108 - New Orleans Pelicans 100: Game Recap

Both teams missing stars, but all eyes were on Anthony Davis and Rudy Gobert. They combined for 56 points, 36 rebounds, 8 blocks in titanic battle. The Utah Jazz (45-29) defeated the New Orleans Pelicans (31-43) tonight on international TV (thanks TNT, but no thanks on the Player’s only gimmick) 108-100. This game shouldn’t have been this close but both teams were missing key players. All-Star bigman DeMarcus Cousins was out with injury, as were All-Star forward Gordon Hayward, and a third 2010 NBA Draft lotto pick Derrick Favors. Alec Burks was also out with a personal matter, the...

Utah Jazz: It’s Time for Dante Exum to Take Burks’ Minutes

Given the recent of struggles of Alec Burks and the Utah Jazz as a whole, there’s a strong argument to be made that Dante Exum should begin filling in at the backup shooting guard position. The Utah Jazz are in an interesting situation this year. They’re certainly in “win-now” mode as their talented roster finds […] Utah Jazz: It’s Time for Dante Exum to Take Burks’ Minutes - Purple and Blues - Purple and Blues - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Jazz rule out Rodney Hood (knee) for rest of game

Utah Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood will not return to Wednesday's game due to right knee soreness. What It Means: His right knee has been a source of trouble all season, so there's a good chance Utah will hold him out of Thursday's game even if he's feeling better. Owners should check for updates after shootaround. If he does sit out, expect Joe Ingles, Alec Burks and Dante Exum to absorb most of his playing time. Hood finishes scoreless with four rebounds in nine first-half minutes. He contributed -12.72 nERD while on the court -- worst among Jazz...

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers: Five things to watch

Banged up Jazz taking on the not-banged up Clippers After a disappointing loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Saturday, the Utah Jazz (41-25) don’t get time to dwell on their shortcomings. I feel most fans were relatively forgiving considering Rudy Gobert was a late scratch from the lineup. But still, Utah’s top scorers were Dante Exum and Alec Burks. That should never happen (especially the first one). They could have at least put up a fight. Still, life in the NBA goes on. And that means the Jazz are back to defending their fourth seed in the West. This time they’ll be facing the team...

George Hill (toe) will not play for Jazz against Rockets

Utah Jazz point guard George Hill (toe) will not play against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. What It Means: Hill's nagging toe injury won't go away and it's pretty clear he's playing through it based on some limping during games. With him out, it should be Dante Exum getting another start, but he hasn't played well and saw just 25 minutes on Monday. Alec Burks could be an interesting option to get more length and offense against up-tempo Rockets. We peg Exum for 9.1 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.5 assists on 26.7 minutes -- this would work for 15.6 FanDuel points. Our models...
