Mehmet Okur Left His Heart In Salt Lake City: The Downbeat #1485

We love Memo, Alec Burks loves free throws, everyone loves FanPosts, and Shums loves Adventure Time a little too much. It's your Wednesday Downbeat. So, how about that game last night, eh? No, seriously, I'm asking. If a preseason game happens in Oklahoma City, and no one televises it, did it actually happen? It's crazy to me that generic illegal video streaming websites from Sketchoslovakia can have video of the Jazz game, but NBALP/ROOT can't. — Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) October 22, 2014 Broadcast-related whining aside, that was pretty cool of the Jazz, going into OKC and...

Utah Jazz Alec Burks accused of elder abuse on Kobe Bryant, Quin Snyder's rotation, and roster cuts

The Jazz offense is coming along; Alec Burks is amazing; Quin Snyder's bigman rotation, Quin Snyder photoshops; and of course, roster cuts are a-comin'. First things first, the Utah Jazz lost to the Los Angeles Lakers; which therefore, retroactively, make the Jazz the worst franchise in the NBA -- despite having 75% of their wins come against Western Conference playoff teams. Sure, 4-2 isn't bad, but it's not as good as 5-1. It's too early to really watch the standings, but there are a few teams that still only have one loss: Toronto Raptors (5-1) Cleveland Cavaliers (4-1) Houston...

Alec Burks says he's good to go against the Lakers

El Segundo, Calif. • Alec Burks’ left shoulder was wrapped with an ice pack as he came off the floor following shootaround this morning. But after missing three straight preseason games because of injury, the Utah Jazz guard says he’s good to go tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers.“It feels real good,” he said. “I’m ready to go.”The fourth-year shooting guard injured his left shoulder bumping into a teammate during a shootaround on Monday. Jazz coach Quin Snyder said the team was “erring on t...

Jazz gain valuable experience with starters down the stretch

Trey Burke, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter all sat in the visiting lockerroom at the Moda Center on Thursday night, fiddling with cell phones and reflecting on Utah’s 109-105 win over the Portland Trailblazers.   They all had thick bags of ice wrapped around their knees. Burke was soaking his feet in an ice bucket as well.   Quin Snyder played his starters extensively in the second preseason game. Alec Burks played 37 minutes, while Burke and Gordon Hayward played 34 minutes each. Was it too mu...

Friday shootaround: Video of Gordon Hayward's and Alec Burks' dunks in Portland

Last night’s Jazz-Blazers game in Portland wasn’t televised by either team. But somebody was filming (maybe the iPhone 6 camera is just this good?), because we have video highlights from Utah’s preseason victory.Specifically, video highlights of this Gordon Hayward dunk:And this Alec Burks dunk:

Utah Jazz: Snyder wants an aggressive, efficient Burks this season

Portland, Ore. • On one possession, Alec Burks encountered four Portland Trail Blazers. Rather than pull the ball out and run a play, the Utah Jazz guard crossed over, took a giant step to the rim and laid the ball in the basket. On another, Burks tried to find Derrick Favors with a bounce pass, but it went off his leg for a turnover. Moral of the story? The Utah Jazz want an aggressive but efficient Burks. It’s simply another part of the process for Jazz coach Quin Snyder’s young roster. “The t...

Utah Jazz: Steve Novak’s shooting makes him important to Jazz system

It was a sequence that looks to occur repeatedly over the next six months. During Sunday’s scrimmage portion of practice, Alec Burks pushed the ball into the frontcourt. His path to the basket deterred, the Utah Jazz shooting guard took a pick from Steve Novak. Two defenders then converged on Burks, forgetting about the best shooter on the floor. Novak relocated to the 3-point line, took a pass and calmly knocked home a jumper. Money. Novak may not be the biggest Jazz player. He’s certainly not ...

Jazz Hoops - Burks, Kanter face interesting few weeks

A year ago, Dennis Lindsey began negotiating with Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward on contract extensions.   Favors came away with an extension before the season started. Hayward went into restricted free agency, where he garnered a max contract.   Now, Lindsey is faced with the same decisions on Alec Burks and Enes Kanter. The Jazz General Manager is expected to open negotiating windows with both parties in the next week, or so. The Jazz have until the end of the preseason to either strike a...

Utah Jazz: Lindsey expects to keep Kanter, Burks ‘a long time’

Optimism abounded as the Jazz opened training camp this week, young and hopeful and still unbeaten. No one seemed to embody that more than Enes Kanter, who beamed as he talked about his 3-point game, his relationship with new coach Quin Snyder and his goal of bringing the playoffs back to Utah. “I’m just pumped up. I’m ready for the season,” Kanter said, then looked over the heads of the reporters gathered around him at a teammate standing behind them. “Right, Alec?” “Yeah,” Alec Burks replied w...

Alec Burks -- The Swag Strikes Back: The Downbeat #1465

Contractual Swag Year We have talked many times this summer how this upcoming season is a contract year for Alec Burks.  It seems that the Jazz may want to lock Burks up before the season starts. Jazz have engaged in contract extension conversations with Enes Kanter and Alec Burks. — Jody Genessy (@DJJazzyJody) September 29, 2014 Let's hope that they do.  I believe that the Jazz could offer Alec more than what the market may offer him and still have a team-friendly deal that helps them.  The Jazz have a tremendous bargaining chip with Alec this year.  That chip?...
