Utah Jazz vs Phoenix Suns odds, starters, injury reports, predictions

There was a time this season when Utah Jazz fans owed the basketball gods a debt. They’d enjoyed outstanding health and a relatively soft schedule.  These days, they may be looking to recoup that debt. When the schedule got easiest, the injury bug struck the Jazz hard. Entering into the most difficult part of their […] Utah Jazz vs Phoenix Suns odds, starters, injury reports, predictions - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

3 studs and 1 dud from Utah Jazz win over Pistons

With any luck, last night’s game marks the moment that the Utah Jazz got back on track. Granted, a 111-101 victory over the Detroit Pistons isn’t necessarily something Jazz fans would expect to be celebrating. The Pistons are one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Jazz, allegedly, are one of the best. Regardless, […] 3 studs and 1 dud from Utah Jazz win over Pistons - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The 1 trade target who could fix this struggling Utah Jazz team

In case you’re new here, we’ll bring you up to speed on the Utah Jazz. They’re good. They may have the skeleton of an NBA title contender, but they’re missing something. Much to our chagrin at the J-Notes, it’s probably a 3-and-D wing. Earlier in the year, it didn’t appear that the Jazzmen were missing […] The 1 trade target who could fix this struggling Utah Jazz team - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Ranking 3 potential Utah Jazz trade chips

The Utah Jazz may need to make a major change. Unfortunately, they only have so many avenues towards doing so. This team is not flush with promising young players. The ones they do roster haven’t been afforded the opportunity to demonstrate their value. Jared Butler has looked like a potentially productive player, but in 5.7 minutes […] Ranking 3 potential Utah Jazz trade chips - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Loss to rebuilding Rockets a cause for concern for Utah Jazz

It should be said that the Utah Jazz were without star player Donovan Mitchell in last night’s game. He is, obviously, the best offensive player on this Jazz team. They are not the same squad without him.  It still certainly feels like they should be able to beat these Houston Rockets in his absence. Last […] Loss to rebuilding Rockets a cause for concern for Utah Jazz - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets odds, starters, injury reports, predictions

The Utah Jazz have been under duress lately. Once widely regarded as championship contender, they’ve dropped 5 of their last 6 contests. Admittedly, they’re 1-1 since Rudy Gobert’s return, but that one loss was a shameful defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers.That wasn’t the only negative outcome of that Lakers game.

How the Utah Jazz could get involved in a Ben Simmons deal

Ben Simmons’ name has become a staple in NBA trade rumors, but it’s not usually attached to the Utah Jazz. Here, we’ll endeavor to change that. Not by sending Simmons to Salt Lake City. While we recently bandied about that idea, it doesn’t become realistic unless Donovan Mitchell demands a trade. Until that moment, the […] How the Utah Jazz could get involved in a Ben Simmons deal - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Do the Utah Jazz need a major shakeup?

Last night, the Utah Jazz lost to the Los Angeles Lakers. It’s hard to know where to even begin. The team struggled offensively throughout the night, and defensively down the stretch.

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert not getting nearly enough touches

The Utah Jazz would benefit from a bump to Rudy Gobert’s shot attempts. Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has shot a combined 13-for-15 from the field between the past two outings following his five-game absence. In other words, as of late, almost everything the three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year touches on offense somehow […] Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert not getting nearly enough touches - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

BR makes bold prediction for Utah Jazz star in season’s second half

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell is one of the NBA’s most complete offensive players. His shiftiness on the interior allows him to finish over the league’s most intimidating rim protectors. He also possesses a unique ability to alter his shot mid-air. His three-point accuracy may not be consistent, but his shot creation is among the […] BR makes bold prediction for Utah Jazz star in season’s second half - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Utah Jazz are preparing for a matchup with LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. On paper, that sounds like quite the task.

3 studs and 1 dud from much-needed Utah Jazz win over Nuggets

The Utah Jazz needed a victory vs the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. They needed it as badly as they’ve needed a win all season. With 3x Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert returning to action, they got one. With a final score of 125-102, this game was never in jeopardy for the Jazzmen.

Is there turmoil in this Utah Jazz locker room?

If the recent rumblings about discord between Utah Jazz stars Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert were the first rumblings, it might feel like less of a problem. Sometimes, NBA players speak to reporters, and quotes become viral before they’re contextualized. Hopefully, that’s all that happened when Rudy Gobert spoke with reporters on Friday. “When I […] Is there turmoil in this Utah Jazz locker room? - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Reacting to placement of the Utah Jazz in BR Power Rankings

Up until recently, Utah Jazz fans could count on their team to rank within the top 3 of any publication’s Power Rankings. They’ve boasted a historically elite Offensive Rating throughout much of 2021-22, with a great defense to boot. They’ve looked the part of bonafide NBA championship contenders.  It’s a little harder to make that […] Reacting to placement of the Utah Jazz in BR Power Rankings - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

3 available big men the Utah Jazz should consider

The Utah Jazz have been in a tough spot lately. A combination of general injuries and health and safety protocols have left the team ravished. So much so that in their last contest, they were forced to start the 6’5 Royce O’Neale at center. That’s a particular issue against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who field an […] 3 available big men the Utah Jazz should consider - The J-Notes - The J-Notes - A Utah Jazz Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
