    I was thinking that the Jazz are probably the 6th best team in the West for real. Point differential puts them there.

    Would be nice for them to keep this going and somehow slide up to the six spot.

    I’ve been waiting in the ER for 5 hours now. Thought I might miss the opening tip. Lol. Haven’t even seen the doctor yet. Anyone awake that can take hospital calls? My pain is finally at an 8.

    The winning streak is awesome, but man, how awful is Dono’s FG% during the same stretch?

    Not good. But he's the first rookie to lead his team in scoring during a 10 game winning streak since Wilt Chamberlain in 1960. I guess that speaks to how good the rest of the team has been.

    Plus, he has hit some big shots. Last night, for example, his percentage was awful, but he hit some huge shots in the 4th to seal the victory. He has been doing that consistently.
    PLesa excuse the tpyos.

    Loved the
    Zach Lowe column on ESPN today. Also, he linked a previous column he wrote on the Jazz's Arches unis. I hadn't seen it before. I had pieced together the symbolism of the unis and the court from watching the games, but it answered my question as to what the crooked piping on the sides represents. Pretty cool.

    I may be in the minority here, but I really like what the Jazz did with these uniforms. It is actually my favorite Jazz uniform.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Guess you didn't read the part about how the reaction to the uniforms has been overwhelmingly positive?
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    The damn bench is 4-20 including 0-9 from 3. Bags are packed. Also someone might want to guard the hot hands.

    Damn, Mitchell is not very efficient but he sure is a great closer.

    Sloan taught defense by foul attrition, unfortunately. Or maybe his teaching was based on antiquated defense rules following the wussification of the league. Either way he’s a legend. The offenses couldn’t be more different though. Sloan hated the 3 pt shot and likely cringes when seeing 36 attempts on the stat sheet.

    I would really, really enjoy taking a baseball bat to Harden’s knee. The refs in any game he plays in would be next.

    I saw this video a few weeks ago, thought it was crazy how much the three point line has become a part of the game and how important is it really.

    This team is a lot of fun to watch. They have the Timberwolves on tilt. Gobert is killing it.

    A tired 4th quarter but last year that was a scheduled loss, especially with Eyore as the de facto leader on a back to back. 8 straight wins on the road. Crazy.

    really great to see Mitchell get to the line 10 times. that has to be the next evolution in his game - the ability to consistently get to the line.

    Is there any Jazz fan (even if the salaries were the same) that would trade Spida straight up for Gordon Hayward?

    Nope. And he's embraced Utah way more than Gordon ever did. He's out here retweeting Coach Rose's espn contest thingy, rocking BYU and Utah gear, bigging up the locals. Winning the slam dunk contest. Such a lucky pick for us.
