The Triple Team: Jazz’s perimeter defense woeful in loss to shorthanded Rockets

Three thoughts on the Utah Jazz’s 126-117 loss to the Houston Rockets from Salt Lake Tribune beat writer Andy Larsen.1. Jazz send Rockets to the line 49 timesYou can’t give a team 49 free throws and win a game. Admittedly, the Jazz fouled intentionally a few times at the end, and so it was really about 41 free throws... and yet 41 free throws would tie the Rockets’ season high this year, and the Rockets famously draw a lot of fouls. But tonight, they were without their main foul drawers in James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and Clint Capela, so it was Eric Gordon who went to the line 20...

Remembering Kobe: Thoughts from the Utah Jazz’s Quin Snyder, Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and Ed Davis

On Monday morning, the Utah Jazz went back to work.It wasn’t a normal day at the Zions Bank Basketball Campus, though. Kobe Bryant’s shocking death at the age of 41 on Sunday was at the top of everyone’s mind, and perhaps it was Ed Davis, who spent the 2014-15 season with Bryant and the Lakers, who best summed up the reaction to the news.“He was so young. Then we found out his daughter was on the chopper. That’s when it really hit,” Davis said. "Especially with me having kids and having two nieces, dealing with that and seeing pictures and videos of her. You know, she was always...

Gordon Monson: Two memories of Kobe Bryant that Jazz fans should hold onto

Gordon Monson: Two memories of Kobe Bryant that Jazz fans should hold onto

Kobe Bryant may have been one of the least-popular players, rivals, around here, in large measure because he played for the Lakers and so often beat the Jazz, but also because he was individually and annoyingly great — with the arrogance to match. But the recollections that arise on a sad, sad day, the day Kobe and one of his daughters died, hearken back to a couple of different memories.They have nothing to do with his ionospheric talent and competitiveness — others can discuss those remarkable characteristics, attributes Bryant owned like few others — and more to do with his being...

Kobe Bryant had a long and drama-filled history with the Utah Jazz

As one of the NBA’s seminal players over the course of a two-decade span, Kobe Bryant, of course, had myriad memorable moments against every franchise in the league.Some of his most notable, though, came against the Utah Jazz.His rise to become one of the league’s all-time leading scorers was made all the more incredible when juxtaposed against those airballed 3-pointers he launched vs. Utah as a teenage rookie forced into action in the 1997 Western Conference semifinals.And, of course, the ultimate bookend to his spectacular career — an unforgettable 60-point farewell to the basketball...

The Triple Team: Rudy Gobert’s MVP-level performance carries the Jazz to a victory against quality Mavs team

Three thoughts on the Utah Jazz’s 112-107 win over the Dallas Mavericks from Salt Lake Tribune Jazz beat writer Andy Larsen.1. Rudy Gobert is playing at an MVP level right nowIt’s easy to get into hyperbole land when talking about Rudy Gobert. The problem is that there’s a gap between what Rudy Gobert actually does for the Jazz versus what casual fans think about his game, and as a writer who sees the former and has to try to explain it to the latter, you try to bridge the gap. So you can say things like “Gobert’s 12 screen assists gave him the triple double,” because fans know...

Matinee game shakes up schedule; Utah second-round pick used in Dallas trade

Saturday’s game featured an unusual start time, especially for a home game: 3 p.m. in Vivint Smart Home Arena. The game was pushed earlier in an effort to make the game more accessible for European fans, who might be especially interested in seeing a matchup of former EuroLeague MVP Luka Doncic vs. reigning Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert.But while it’s unusual, everyone involved seemed to enjoy the early start time.“I think for a majority, we mostly, all of us like it," Mike Conley said. "You get to go eat dinner afterwards at a good time, at 7 p.m. instead of 10-11:30. So...
