Utah Jazz defense is going to improve with added responsibility for Gordon Hayward, Rudy Gobert

Improvements with the Utah Jazz defense, challenges, protecting the paint, and Dante Exum's game to game improvements. A bonus downbeat for the best fans in the world!

Without you all visiting here and contributing as often as you do this season will be a failure, no matter what the Utah Jazz do on the court. This site has always been about the community and the strength of this site is the community. So I...

Kobe scores 27, but Jazz like Hayward's defense

Anaheim, Calif. • Kobe Bryant dropped 27 points on the Utah Jazz tonight. A game high. Ten more than anyone else on the court, for either team.But the Jazz left the Honda Center happy with what the team, and especially Gordon Hayward, did defensively on Bryant.“I think that’s as good as you can do on Kobe,” forward Derrick Favors said of his teammate’s efforts. “Kobe’s one of those great players. He’s not going to miss too many shots. The only thing you can do on him is make him make tough shots...

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

freeform Last night’s Jazz-Blazers game in Portland wasn’t televised by either team.

A Preview of the Northwest Division

A Preview of the Northwest Division

A look at each team in the Northwest division: what they did in the offseason, their outlook for the upcoming season, and players to keep an eye on. The Northwest Division has two strong teams, a borderline playoff team, and two lottery bound teams. I will start with the team I predict to finish last in the division this year, the Utah Jazz. The Utah Jazz The Utah Jazz had a mostly quiet summer. They let Tyrone Corbin's contract as head coach run out, replacing him with Quin Snyder, an assistant on the Hawks in 2014. Gordon Hayward, their starting small forward, was re-signed to a 4 year...

Utah Jazz: Hayward experiences social media pushback

Jazz forward Gordon Hayward posts on his personal blog fairly regularly. His latest update — tweeted with a link on Tuesday — came equipped with this title: “If I played @KingJames 1-on-1, I’d crush him. My new blog on why I’m the best”. Let’s just say the post generated some interesting comments. And a lot of them. In fact, there was so much traffic to Hayward’s blog that it crashed — earning some national attention and even some laughs in the process. Hayward, of course, wasn’t talking about ...
