For what it’s worth, GSW’s smallest margin of victory came against Utah Jazz

It may not mean much, but for what it’s worth the Utah Jazz were able to play the Golden State Warriors closer than any of their other Western Conference playoff opponents.

Quick Reaction: Utah Jazz rumored to be after Milos Teodosic

SLC Dunk gives their quick reaction to the rumor. The Utah Jazz are in the rumor mill early this NBA offseason. They are rumored to be chasing Milos Teodosic of CSKA Moscow. Our staff has their quick reactions to the rumor. Milos Teodosic averaged 16.1 points, 6.8 assists, 2.1 rebounds, and 0.6 steals a game in only 27 minutes per game during his 2016-2017 season in the Euroleague. Austin Oldham I wouldn't hate this. I would be very intrigued by Teodosic. He's a very skilled and fairly big point guard at 6'5''. I like the connection with he and Quin having been together at CSKA Moscow. I...

If Gordon Hayward leaves Utah then what?

It’s your move, Dennis Lindsey ... The Utah Jazz are facing an offseason that has the potential to define the franchise for half a decade.

Dennis Lindsey on George Hill: “You're not going to get one poor thought, much less word, if he goes elsewhere.”

Dennis Lindsey on George Hill: “You're not going to get one poor thought, much less word, if he goes elsewhere.”

Will the 31 year old point guard be returning to Utah next season? It has seemed like a foregone conclusion that the Utah Jazz would re-sign George Hill once the offseason arrived. His presence at point guard elevated the Utah Jazz’s play and when he was healthy, the Utah Jazz were a force to be reckoned with. But unfortunately George Hill played in only 49 games in the regular season. The Utah Jazz traded their #12 pick last year to have George Hill’s services and the Utah Jazz tried hard during the season to try to extend George Hill’s contract during the season, but Hill and the...

Rudy Gobert named as finalist for Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved

Rudy Gobert is a finalist for two different regular season awards. Rudy Gobert has been named a finalist for the Defensive Player of the Year award and the Most Improved Player award. For the first time the NBA is naming finalists for their regular season awards that they will be presenting at an end of the year ceremony hosted by Drake. Rudy Gobert had been in the discussion for Most Improved Player and Defensive Player last year, but ultimately name recognition, the Greek Freak, and Kawhi Leonard limited his chances.
