The Utah Jazz have had an exceptional season so far, but will they be able to finish strong enough to reach that impressive 50-win mark? At the beginning of the 2016-17 NBA season, speculation was high that this would be the year that the Utah Jazz finally got over the hump and made it back […] Will the Utah Jazz Hit the 50-Win Mark? - Purple and Blues - Purple and Blues - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Utah Jazz 108 - New Orleans Pelicans 100: Game Recap

Both teams missing stars, but all eyes were on Anthony Davis and Rudy Gobert. They combined for 56 points, 36 rebounds, 8 blocks in titanic battle. The Utah Jazz (45-29) defeated the New Orleans Pelicans (31-43) tonight on international TV (thanks TNT, but no thanks on the Player’s only gimmick) 108-100.

Alec Burks was also out with a personal matter, the...

Utah Jazz vs New Orleans Pelicans: Game Preview

Gobzilla is about to wreck Boogie and/or The Brow After a tough loss against the Los Angeles Clippers (44-30) on Saturday, the Utah Jazz (44-29) have a chance to bounce back against the New Orleans Pelicans (30-42) today. Having now lost four of their last five, a win against the under .500 Pelicans is crucial if any shred of hope lasts for the four seed. Although, that hope may be the same as eighteen year-old me diagnosing my hairline. Was it just a few weeks ago we were riding a win streak and drinking in the playoffs like a fresh capri sun? Well, it seems that pouch has been sucked dry...

Utah Jazz Downbeat #2058 - Joe Ingles has his own signature Burrito.

You need to stop wasting time and click this already. It’s more than just burritos here in Utah Jazz land, they have the playoffs but there’s still the playoff push! Let’s get to it! The Utah Jazz are back in action tonight, hosting the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans are playing great when DeMarcus Cousins is sitting. They took out the Denver Nuggets last night in Denver - and blew them out. Anthony Davis is great, but I wonder can he be great two nights in a row at this elevation? New Orleans is low. #NOPatUTA Having played #NOPatDEN last night we'll see if they...

Utah Jazz playoffbound behind Hayward Gobert, but who makes them a Big Three?

A quick look at the line-up data from NBA.com tells us that it’s none other than . . . The Utah Jazz (44-29) are heading to the NBA Playoffs for the first time since I was a younger man with more hair on his head and hopes and dreams in my heart. Life may have taken it’s toll on me, but it’s clear that Gordon Hayward (NBA All-Star) and Rudy Gobert (possible Defensive Player of the Year) are only just starting to dominate. You could argue that both deserve to be recognized on the end of season All-NBA team this year. But which third Utah Jazz player should be recognized as the...

The Utah Jazz are in the NBA Playoffs, but will they finish the season strong?

A look at every season finish for the Jazz over the last 20 years, what they did in the playoffs, and what to expect from them against this schedule. The Utah Jazz got a freebie last night, when they got into the NBA Playoffs while idle. They have a berth, which is great. But it’s still up to them to earn their seed and potentially home court in the first round. So how are they going to finish this season? There are now 9 games left. Is there anything we can guess about their finish from previous Jazz seasons? Dig in, folks! AllThatAmar Okay, so things didn’t start...

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert chasing 1000 / 1000 / 200, immortality in NBA History books

In an era of ‘small ball’ some giants still walk amongst us. First off, Rudy Gobert can say whatever the hell he wants to the press, to his teammates, and to the universe itself. With what he’s doing out there on the court he has the right to be as loud as he wants. And damnit, this Utah Jazz team does need a firey vocal leader out there suiting up every night. But beyond the Jazz - a franchise with it’s own Pantheon of Greatness in John Stockton, Pistol Pete Maravich, Adrian Dantley, Karl Malone, and Mark Eaton - we see an angry star emerging in Gobert. A star whose accomplishments...

Whether it lights a fire or puts stress on team chemistry, Rudy’s comments will be a positive thing for the team.

Given the recent of struggles of Alec Burks and the Utah Jazz as a whole, there’s a strong argument to be made that Dante Exum should begin filling in at the backup shooting guard position.
