Utah Jazz vs Golden State Warriors: What’s missing?

Utah Jazz vs Golden State Warriors: What’s missing?

A statistical look at who isn’t playing tonight The Utah Jazz (14-9) host the Golden State Warriors (19-3) tonight. The Dubs have won three in a row, has have the Jazz. They are on a road trip, and Utah a home stand. The similarities kind of end there. Utah is not expected to win this game. And really not with the people who are not going to be suiting up. Utah will be missing four starters (George Hill, Rodney Hood, Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors) and one bench player (Alec Burks). AllThatAmar That’s a lot of points, rebounds, assists, and so forth. Jeeze, 55...

Jazz shootaround: Gordon Hayward won't play tonight vs. Golden State

Jazz star Gordon Hayward will not play against Golden State on Thursday night at Vivint Smart Home Arena after re-aggravating a finger injury, the team has announced.

Hayward joins shooting guard Alec Burks (left ankle rehab), power forward Derrick Favors (left knee bone contus...

Recap: Denver Nuggets comeback falls short as Gordon Hayward powers Utah Jazz to 105-98 victory

The Nuggets gave it their best, but once again were doomed by one terrible quarter The Denver Nuggets came into Salt Lake City desperate for a win. After back to back losses that were as much about the lack of effort as they were the final score the Nuggets found themselves with their backs against the wall facing a bitter divisional rival in the Utah Jazz. Utah got good news before the game started with Rodney Hood being a go, but would still be without George Hill, Derrick Favors and Alec Burks. The Nuggets meanwhile were missing Nikola Jokic and Gary Harris. Whether it was injuries or...

Miami Heat 111 - Utah Jazz 110 Game Recap: Heartbreak

Miami Heat 111 - Utah Jazz 110 Game Recap: Heartbreak

Can’t wait for the Last 2 Minute Report on this one The Miami Heat (7-12) won their second game in a row, and broke the Utah Jazz (11-9) four-game win streak by the slimmest of margins, 111-110. But that’s all it takes, a one point margin that these Heat fought for all game long. They earned it, beating the Jazz in the second and third quarters, and holding off a mad rush at the end of the game. To set the table, both teams were without three starters (Chris Bosh vs. Derrick Favors, Josh Richardson vs. George Hill, and Justise Winslow vs. Rodney Hood) and a bench shooting guard who...

Utah Jazz vs. Miami Heat Game Preview

It’s the humidity, or inversion, that’ll really kill you. Tonight we see our Utah Jazz (11-8) try to go for the elusive fifth win in a row. Their opponent tonight? The Miami Heat (6-12) who are playing in their second game of a back-to-back, their third game in four nights, and their fifth game in seven. Both teams aren’t bringing their best players to this battle. Utah will be without starters George Hill (PG), Rodney Hood (SG), and Derrick Favors (PF/C). And they’ll continue to be without bench swag artist Alec Burks (SG/PG). Those are four of their top eight guys. That’s tough...

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...

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...

Denver Nuggets 105 - Utah Jazz 91 Game Recap: Under .500

Four losses in a row aren’t all flukes you can easily excuse away The Utah Jazz (7-8) were throttled tonight by the Denver Nuggets (5-8), and lost 105-91 to a team that had previously won only .333 of their games. Sure, Denver had some good news as they got a number of rotation players back in the line-up: Will Barton, Wilson Chandler, and Alonzo Gee. A solid, near wire-to-wire win for Denver shows the silver lining that hopefully awaits Utah when / if they ever get healthy. Once again playing without two starters (George Hill and Derrick Favors) and their bench scoring crutch (Alec...

Utah Jazz: On the road, Jazz leave one family and join another

Charlotte • Quin Snyder uses FaceTime. Lots and lots of FaceTime. Trey Lyles checks twice to make sure he has all of the right shoes and the right shirts. He doesn’t want to get stuck without multiple pairs, and wearing the same shirt for three consecutive days has been his ongoing fear. Derrick Favors makes sure all of the bills are paid. Shelvin Mack cleans the house and the refrigerator. Rodney Hood takes the trash out one last time. The Jazz are currently on a road trip that takes the team t...
