Utah Jazz 106 - Phoenix Suns 101: Game Recap

Utah Jazz 106 - Phoenix Suns 101: Game Recap

Gordon Hayward put the Jazz up for good seconds to play, and Rudy Gobert sealed the win with a defensive dagger. Tell me these guys aren’t All-Stars. The Utah Jazz (27-16) escaped from the valley of the Phoenix Suns (13-28) in what was a way more competitive game than it ever should have been. The 106-101 victory was, frankly, improbable with how poorly Utah was mailing it in for most of this game. Sure, Eric Bledsoe always slices the Jazz to pieces (31 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists, 7/7 from the line). And yes, Devin Booker is on a fantastic run right now (27, 22, 28, 39, 39, and 25...

Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward named Western Conference Player of the Week

Gettin’ too big, yo. The NBA announced today that Gordon Hayward was named Western Conference Player of the Week. Hayward led the Utah Jazz to a 3-1 record, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, and Orlando Magic at home — and dropping a tough game against the Memphis Grizzlies on the road. (Tough game = second night of a back to back, third game in four nights, fifth game in seven nights, last game in a five game road trip that switched time zones a few times.)

Utah Jazz vs Phoenix Suns: Game Preview

The Utah Jazz (26-16) visit the Phoenix Suns (13-27) tonight. This is something of a high point in the season for the Utah Jazz. They're 26-16, Rudy Gobert and Gordon Hayward are playing like all-stars, and, for the first time since 2010, are all but a lock for the playoffs. Even the bad luck for the Jazz hasn't been quite as bad as usual: we all held our collective breath when we saw Rodney Hood fall to the ground, screaming in pain, but his season isn't over! He suffered a bone bruise, as I'm sure nearly everyone reading this blog knows, and will return relatively soon. The Phoenix Suns...

Utah Jazz vs Phoenix Suns: 5 things to watch

Utah visits Phoenix missing one Rodney Hood Having narrowly avoided multiple scares on Saturday, from both the Orlando Magic and Rodney Hood’s knees, the Utah Jazz (26-16) will head to Arizona to face off against the pesky Phoenix Suns (13-27). There aren’t a ton of story-lines, this being a middle-of-the-season match-up against a below .500 opponent. But there are still a few things you can keep an eye or two on. Where will the SG minutes go? Rodney Hood has been declared out after hyper-extending his knee on a fast-break against the Orlando Magic on Saturday (maybe that’s why we...

Should the Utah Jazz Draft Another Weber State Wildcat?

Should the Utah Jazz Draft Another Weber State Wildcat?

The Jazz took a flyer on Weber State standout Joel Bolomboy. Let’s look at Jeremy Senglin. I know what you’re thinking. “Hey, wait a minute! The Utah Jazz are still playing basketball! Why are we talking about 2nd-round draft picks?” Two reasons: I have some time on my hands this weekend and The fellow I’m about to evaluate could be a valuable asset for an NBA team next season. The Jazz will still have their lone 2nd-round pick when the draft rolls around, assuming they a) don’t trade it and b) finish with a better record than the New York Knicks or Detroit Pistons. They also...

Rodney Hood injury update: Bone Bruise

No structural damage, reports Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune Last night Rodney Hood hyper-extended his right knee. It looked bad. It probably felt worse as Hood stayed on the floor for an extended period of time shouting and banging his fist on the hardwood. He needed help leaving the court and did not return to the game, Utah Jazz 114 - Orlando Magic 107. (Hood’s injury history and breakdown here) Three of the best beatwriters in the business, Jody Genessy of the Deseret News, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, and Andy Larsen of KSL, have tirelessly been on this case.

What can the Utah Jazz do if Rodney Hood is out for an extended period?

What can the Utah Jazz do if Rodney Hood is out for an extended period?

Five possible players Quin Snyder can turn to for now Last night the Utah Jazz (26-16) won the game, but lost Rodney Hood. He hyper-extended his right knee with under 2:00 minutes to go in the game, left, and did not return. It’s a shame because Utah has been very injured this year and had FINALLY gotten healthy enough for Quin Snyder to start assigning players to the healthy, but inactive roster. All in all Utah has already had to deal with 51 games without one of their five normal starters this year, and 101 games without one of their top 10 rotation players. The three major culprits...
