It’s obvious that the Jazz... read more...

  • Quin Snyder gets peppered with questions after every loss — even after he leaves the arena. “My 2-year-old still likes me,” the Jazz coach quipped at shootaround Friday morning. “But my 4-year-old watches the games and she wants to know why we lost.” So following nine straight defeats, any win is a good win. And a badly needed victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday seems t... read more...
