Kragthorpe: After Jazz's five-year struggle, what will next five years look like?

By losing their final game before the NBA’s All-Star break, the Jazz succeeded in landing at a symbolic point in their ongoing rebuilding project. The Jazz’s .500 record (26-26) is not quite their best mark at this stage of any season since they traded All-Star point guard Deron Williams and basically started over. Yet this latest checkpoint of mediocrity represents progress in a subjective way. They’ve gone from being hopelessly average to hopefully average. The franchise’s growth is encouragin...

Utah Jazz notes: Raul Neto, Rodney Hood and Trey Lyles duke it out in high-scoring Rising Stars game

Toronto • Exhibitions like Friday’s are wild affairs. So there was Jazz point guard Raul Neto, whose pesky defense has earned him the starting job in Utah as rookie, backing off a ball handler. “It’s hard,” Neto said with a smile after his World Team had suffered a narrow 157-154 defeat in the all-star weekend’s Rising Stars Challenge. “My game is playing defense, playing hard. But I don’t want to look like the crazy guy, the only guy who’s going to play defense. So I’ve got to back up. It’s har...

Utah Jazz: Optimism abounds as team heads into All-Star break

Yes, the mood was a bit somber on Wednesday night in the Utah Jazz locker room following a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. Yes, many players and coaches felt execution and a few defensive stops could’ve yielded a different and more positive outcome. At the same time, players were encouraged as the Jazz head into a week hiatus. Although Utah’s season-long seven-game win streak was snapped at the hands of Anthony Davis and company, the Jazz finished the official first half of the season by winni...

Utah Jazz fortunate 'Rising Star' Rodney Hood fell on draft night

This is not D.B. Cooper or Sasquatch or El Dorado’s gold. But Utah Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood is at the center of a mystery in the basketball world that even he hasn’t been able to solve: Why, on that June night in 2014, as player after player marched across the stage to shake the commissioner’s hand, was a skilled, 6-foot-8 shooting guard left sitting at his table for so long? How on earth did Hood, burgeoning basketball star, fall all the way to the Utah Jazz near the end of the first rou...

Utah Jazz: Team is not taking winning for granted

New Orleans • In the hours before the Utah Jazz played the New Orleans Pelicans, Jazz coach Quin Snyder was aked if his team had “arrived,” and he pointed out that three weeks ago, he was asked why his team couldn’t win close games. Such is life in the NBA, and a reason the Jazz aren’t taking their current success too seriously. Yes, the Jazz are happy to be playing well, but that’s where it stops. “Last night, we win an overtime game [Tuesday night against the Dallas Mavericks] and we’ve arrive...
