[Video] SLC Dunk Post Game Show: Utah Jazz defeat Denver Nuggets 106-96

The Utah Jazz dominate the fourth quarter to beat the Denver Nuggets After a sluggish start that saw a large amount of defenses lapses and hot shooting from the Denver Nuggets, the Utah Jazz came roaring back in the second half to get the victory. The adjustments in the second half paid off immensely as the Jazz found a way to slow down the Nuggets scoring more effectively. Nikola Jokic gave Rudy Gobert problems but Rudy still managed 18 and 10. In the first half, Alec Burks struggled on the defensive end but exploded in the fourth quarter helping the Jazz pull away from the Nuggets. Joe...

Top 100 NBA Players: Where do the Utah Jazz fit in?

Top 100 NBA Players: Where do the Utah Jazz fit in?

Utah is one of only a handful of teams with all 5 starters ranked. The NBA season is upon us, but before we begin I wanted to review the player rankings across the league. Several sites put out a top 100 players list, and it is always interesting to see where the Utah Jazz players come in. I collected the 5 main lists that I could find and have summarized them in a table here. (You should #takenote that I’m not very good with excell and tables and such, so this is very simple.) It comes as no surprise that Rudy Gobert is the best player on the Jazz and one of the best in the league. He...

The Downbeat: Derrick Favors is the longest tenured Jazzman

Derrick Favors has been in town a long time. Preseason basketball is over and everyone is getting pumped for the upcoming season. The hype train is real, especially around Donovan Mitchell. And to be honest, I think we’ll be hearing a lot about Donovan Mitchell for the next few months. The Jazz will be fighting for media coverage, and Rudy Gobert and Mitchell will be the only ones to provide that for the foreseeable future. The Jazz have been sending out tweets with the hashtag #MeetTheJazz. Derrick Favors got his time and also got to show off his new...
