    Yeah, but we could have had both? At least for a few minutes.

    For a rook he's doing a brilliant marketing job. It seems like he does enjoy it here. I freaking love the kid.

    Jazz are pretty lucky to have Rudy and Mitchell as the stars of the team going forward. They need another major piece of course and continued development from Mitchell to ever hope to contend, but those two guys are a nice start.

    I’m afraid it may very well take finding another diamond in the rough to establish this team as a real contender. Unfortunately, wooing superstars to this backwater has not gone so well to this point, a fantastic night life notwithstanding.

    Quick, find a wooden object and knock on it.

    He really is though. His hands are no longer a liability and he is physical. Oh, and he’s incredibly tall and long.

    Payback’s a bitch, Oladipo. The Stifle Tower makes a huge difference.

    Jazz win, but looking like 3 out of 4 other West teams in the playoff hunt are also going to win.

    Jazz are 19-4 over their last 23 games. Incredible run, but they’re still sitting in a 3-way tie for 8th.

    This is getting very interesting and is most definitely fun to watch.

    They've won 18 of 20 and still haven't moved up in seeding. That's insane.

    Getting closer, though!

    Somebody on the radio this morning was talking about upcoming games - mentioned that Utah has more home games remaining, which should balance some of that out.

    For example, of their next 15 games, Nuggets and Clippers each have 10 on the road.
    Of their next 15 games, Jazz only have 6 road games.

    We'll see what a difference it makes.

    Those following this team know that more home games may not be a good thing. It didn't help that glass man Steph Curry rolled his ankle right as the Warriors were going to play a couple of the teams ahead of Utah.

    Jazz win. Of course, so do the Clippers, Timberwolves, and Pelicans.

    But not the Nuggets!

    On that note, umm, the Lakers are playing really well and the Jazz have them 2 times to end the season

    keep waiting for the jazz to lose one of these so-called trap games. just when you think Rubio playing well is key to everything, he comes out, lays an egg, and they win by 30+.

    I’m trying to figure out what started it. There was no foul or foul called. Must have been some chippiness prior to the play

    Dudley thought Chriss might be hurt and was annoyed that the ref and rubio continued play so fast. That was Dudley's way of stopping the play. He admitted it was probably too much and accepted the flagrant 2.

    When did the Kings learn to play basketball? Phew. By the way, I’m sure glad Dante Exum is back. We’ve needed a back up PG to miss at the rim, miss at the 3-pt line, and miss wide open shooters consistently.

    10 games above .500.

    This one had me nervous! This Jazz team is tough as nails and Snyder is building something pretty special. Incredible turnaround this season.

    Nugget and Clippers finally losing is a good thing.

    The Spurs have no good players — would be nice and a sign of how much they truly suck if they lose to the Warriors Junior Varsity team tonight.

    No such luck. The warriors have really let the Jazz down over the past couple weeks, with losses to the Blazers, T-Wolves, and Spurs.

    They have a pretty tough remaining schedule. Wouldn't be surprised to see them miss the playoffs and break Pop's 20 year streak.

    Watching the replay against the depleted Warriors. I wasn't real stoked about the Ricky Rubio trade, but now I have to say that I really like him on the team. Don't need him to score, and he's a good defender and a very good ball handler and distributor. Not too used to that recently.

    would be great if he did away with the bonehead turnovers he commits when trying to force it, but he’s been a nice addition
