Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves: Five Things To Watch

Time to show who’s the real young contender 1. Can the Utah Jazz defense continue to play this well without Derrick Favors? The Utah Jazz held the Atlanta Hawks to 68 points on Friday with Boris Diaw and Trey Lyles playing the 4 position almost all night. That’s no small task considering they were guarding Paul Millsap. The truth is, they didn’t just guard the three time all star, they stifled (Rudy emoji needed) him to 11 points and 5 rebounds on 36% shooting. That’s impressive considering Millsap, as we all know, has the ability to shoot from deep, but also penetrate and score or...

Utah Jazz: Boris Diaw showing signs of coming around after preseason injury

Boris Diaw isn’t totally healthy yet, but the veteran forward has finally showed some signs of progress. A bone contusion suffered late in the preseason had kept Diaw either sidelined or rendered him ineffective on the court until his performance Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets. “Still not feeling 100 percent, so I’m trying to get there,” said Diaw, who scored 11 points to go with three rebounds and three assists in the win. “I felt good in preseason and then when I got injured I to...

Denver Nuggets at Utah Jazz Game Preview

The Jazz have to play with heart tonight The Utah Jazz (7-8) are under .500 — which in the big picture is where we fans expected the team to be after hearing about Gordon Hayward’s injury. If you add to the fact that the team still has yet to hear any good news about Alec Burks, rotation bigmen Derrick Favors and Boris Diaw have been out almost all season long, and that George Hill hasn’t play since the first week of the season . . . being half a game UNDER .500 is still pretty cool. The Utah Jazz are treading water, but taking a lot on. The Denver Nuggets (5-8) saw too that when they...

Jazz notes: Struggling Boris Diaw sits out another game with injury

Houston • Boris Diaw is unquestionably bright and one of his old coaches knows that the big man needs his peers on the basketball court to keep up with him to keep his interest. “I do know that Boris wants to play a certain way,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said after heaping praise upon the player he once coached with the Phoenix Suns. “He wants to play smart basketball and if people aren’t playing around him he can be disengaged.” Diaw has perhaps looked that way at times during his early days...

Utah Jazz at Houston Rockets: 5 Things to Watch

Their top shooters all have amazing percentages while taking a lot...

David Lee as the Spurs’ new Boris Diaw

One of the summer’s less celebrated signings has looked like a great move thus far for the Spurs. No one knew what to expect from the Spurs’ new frontcourt coming into this season. At the center of it was Pau Gasol signing as Tim Duncan retired, but there were also concerns with the exits of Boris Diaw and David West, two bigs who each filled out important roles on the bench. Of the two losses, Diaw’s was the one that hurt the most sentimentally. His signing in 2012, following a release from the lowly Bobcats, coincided with the rise of the Beautiful Game Era, as he endeared himself...

Jazz update: Hood, Hill, Favors, Diaw questionable vs. Memphis

Utah Jazz 109 Philadelphia 76ers 84 Game Recap

No George Hill, no problem The Utah Jazz (5-3) took care of business on the second night of a back-to-back by putting the Philadelphia 76ers (0-6) to bed early in the second half. I will give a lot of credit to this winless Sixers team, they have some nice players and they work very hard. But they are at a talent deficit right now with their injuries, missing Ben Simmons, Nerlens Noel, and Jerryd Bayless. Of course, Utah was without George Hill, Alec Burks, and Boris Diaw. But Utah is a deep team aiming for homecourt in the Western Conference. Philly is not. So the missing rotation players...
