Utah Jazz 65 - Phoenix Suns 45: Halftime Show!

Utah Jazz 65 - Phoenix Suns 45: Halftime Show!

Jazz cruising right now The Phoenix Suns (6-14) aren’t a very strong road team this year, they’ve won only 3 times outside of their home, and only once against a Western Conference team. Right now they find themselves behind by twenty points to the Utah Jazz (13-9), 65-45. Rudy Gobert has been a beast (14/7/2) in the paint, and Gordon Hayward and Joe Johnson have combined for 21 points off of some efficient shooting. Those three guys have 35 points. The Suns as a team have 45. You do the math. Utah Jazz vs. Phoenix Suns Halftime ShowUtah Jazz vs. Phoenix Suns Halftime ShowPosted by...

Utah Jazz 57 Los Angeles Lakers 53 Halftime Show

Yes, we’re still doing these! The Utah Jazz (12-9) are injured. And they are on the road. The bad news is that they are on the road to play the Los Angeles Lakers (10-12), in a place they don’t win a lot of games in. The good news is that LA is also injured. So it evens out? Maybe? I don’t know. The first quarter had the Jazz bust out of the gate, play defense, and put up a big lead. But LA didn’t give up. After one it was a 26-26 game. Now at halftime the score is 57-53. Big games so far from Gordon Hayward, Dante Exum, Lou Williams, Boris Diaw, and . . . Timofey Mozgov? Okay....

Kragthorpe: Jazz staying afloat at one-quarter mark, amid injuries

Introducing guard Rodney Hood, Jazz public address announcer Dan Roberts said, “Welcome back.” Such a greeting is being heard too often lately at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Or maybe not enough. Favored to repeat as the Physician’s Weekly Team of the Year, the Jazz reached the one-fourth mark of another adventurous season Saturday night in a 105-98 defeat of Denver. Gordon Hayward made the milestone memorable with 32 points in his third straight 30-point game, topping by far the most prolific week ...

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...

Utah Jazz 112 Minnesota Timberwolves 103: Game Recap

Jazz take it to the Timberkittens in Minny, improve to 10-8 George Hill had 24 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists, Gordon Hayward chipped in 24/5/2 and Rudy Gobert anchored the defense in what was a solid win for an almost injury-free Jazz squad under the circumstances. It was a back-and-forth affair for much of the game, and although the Jazz were ahead more often than not, the Peskies hung around behind Karl-Anthony Towns' 19/12/1. In the end, the good guys pulled it out and Coach Tom Thibodeau ground his starters into the dust, as he has done more often than not up to this point, playing...

Jazz notes: When Gordon Hayward dunks, fans cheer and he grimaces

Minneapolis • Gordon Hayward’s dunks can bring people out of their seats. But while fans cheer, Hayward grimaces. “That’s the one time where it really does hurt,” the Utah Jazz forward said of his left ring finger, “because I’m putting a lot of weight down and bending my finger grabbing the rim.” Hayward broke the finger when he caught it in a teammate’s jersey during a preseason practice and missed the first six games of the year while it healed. The seventh-year pro is still dealing with the e...

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 53 Utah Jazz 41: Live halftime show

Down, but not out The Utah Jazz (7-7) are looking listless against the Denver Nuggets (4-8). The Nuggets had some injuries early and are trying to make something happen for them. Jusuf Nurkic has 10 points, and benchmates Nikola Jokic and Wilson Chandler both have 11. For the Jazz, only Gordon Hayward has reached double digits so far with 11. But he has taken 11 shots in order to get there. Rudy Gobert is in all kinds of foul trouble (three in 10 minutes of play). But this game isn’t over yet.

Utah Jazz leader Gordon Hayward is playing like an All-Star. Let’s compare him to every West All-Star wing from 2007 to 2016!

Looking at the stats and projecting the 2017 Western Conference All-Stars The Utah Jazz have a 7-4 record this season so far, which is pretty good. They are leading their division and are in the hunt for not just a playoff spot -- but also homecourt in the first round. If that were to happen then this would really usher in a new era in Franchise history. The one player who seems to be the one who determines that outcome is none other than Gordon Hayward. Hayward is in his 7th year in the NBA, and is going into yet another season as the first option for the Jazz. He has bulked up the last...
