  • <freeform> Joe Ingles’ all-star break was extra long. Rodney Hood’s was even longer. But the Utah Jazz expect to have both swingmen back in action Friday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, providing some much needed depth on the perimeter. “Pretty good,” Ingles said of how his back felt after dealing with muscle spasms that kept him out of three straight ga... read more...

  • It came to them at halftime. They aren’t good enough to don a uniform and expect a win. They aren’t good enough to simply show up. Quin Snyder never for once dreamed he would have to address a sense of superiority with this specfic Jazz team. But there they were, after two consecutive wins, playing the Boston Celtics like wins were pre-ordained. What happened, a 99-90 loss, was predic... read more...

  • <freeform> It cost Larry H. Miller about $22 million to buy the Utah Jazz in the mid-1980s — about $8 million to buy into the team in 1985, and then another $14 million to buy out his partner a year later, preventing a sale that would have moved the franchise to Minnesota. You don’t have to possess the same business acumen Miller had to know it turned out to be a good inv... read more...

  • Like all opponents of LeBron James, the Utah Jazz enter Wednesday’s matchup trying to figure out a way to stop one of the best basketball player’s on Earth. And like most opponents of LeBron James, the Jazz are largely drawing a blank on how to completely stop him. “He’s too big, too strong and too fast,” is how Utah small forward Gordon Hayward put it. So, if the Jazz canâ... read more...

  • This past week, the Portland Trailblazers lost one of their great former players, when Jerome Kersey suddenly passed away. On Thursday, the NBA lost a piece of its history when Earl Lloyd died at the age of 86. Lloyd was the first African-American player in league history, making his breakthrough in 1950, when he was 22 years old. He was an imposing figure, 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds. He w... read more...

  • <freeform> New Orleans • Tyreke Evans, the Pelicans’ point guard by default right now, came out firing Monday night against the Utah Jazz. In the first quarter, the combo guard was involved in every one of his team’s first-quarter baskets. Evans’ quickness gave Jazz rookie Elijah Millsap trouble, as he scored 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting, and dished out four assists... read more...

  • No. That’s the answer to everyone that woke up this morning asking if Wesley Matthews‘ ruptured Achilles tendon last night was some sort of terrible dream. In the opening minutes of the third quarter in what had been a relatively uneventful game against the Dallas Mavericks, Matthews caught a pass and attempted to drive toward the […] ... read more...

  • Kawhi Leonard made his return from a hand injury this week, which wasn’t great news for the Utah Jazz last night. In an 89-69 Spurs victory, Leonard had 12 points, nine rebounds, two steals and a block. “Well, he always impacts the game,” coach Gregg Popovich told reporters afterward. “Whether it’s the person he is guarding or giving help and making a steal, rebounding the basket... read more...

  • The Jazz have let forward Christapher Johnson’s 10-day contract expire, opening up a roster spot. Johnson, a 6-foot-6 swingman who has had NBA stints with Boston, Memphis and Philadelphia, had decent showings during his two appearances with Utah. On Friday night in Phoenix, he scored nine points on 3-of-5 shooting from three-point territory, while recording two rebounds, two steals and ... read more...
