  • Rudy Gobert - as outwardly truthful a person as you will find on the Utah Jazz roster - made his feelings known on twitter, following Utah’s 92-89 loss to the Portland Trailblazers on Wednesday night. “Im gonna stay away from that fine and get off twitter for the night,” is what Gobert wrote on social media. It was a clever and thoughtful way for Gobert to make his feelings know... read more...

  • Two weeks. That’s the rest that Rodney Hood will allow for himself this offseason. One day after lockerroom cleanout, the Utah Jazz shooting guard was afforded the biggest honor of his young NBA career. He was named the Western Conference rookie of the month, after averaging 16.7 points, three rebounds and three assists during April. He scored a career-high 25 points against the Sacram... read more...

  • One of the things the Utah Jazz want to do this offseason is improve the overall shooting through the roster. Versatility helps as well. UNLV forward Christian Wood met with the Jazz during the Draft Combine this week. He’s a 6-foot-11 power forward with the ability to play small forward. His height, his length and athleticism complement his ability to shoot the ball. Wood is an earl... read more...

  •   While Celtics fans would love to see Paul Pierce finish out his career in Boston, many seem to think that won’t be the case.   There’s reportedly a belief around the NBA that Pierce will opt out of his final season with the Washington Wizards to play for the Los Angeles Clippers, NBA.com’s David Aldridge reported Monday. The move would reunite Pierce with his forme... read more...

  • There will be no Dirk Nowitzki tonight to play against the Utah Jazz. There will be no Monta Ellis. There will be Tyson Chandler. Those three - the core of the Dallas Mavericks - will not be around tonight to face the Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena. Heck, they aren’t even in Salt Lake City with the team. They flew back home last night. Welcome to the end of the season, where teams rest... 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...

  • Jason Terry's consistent contribution for the Houston Rockets has been one of the most startling surprises of this entire season. In his 16th overall year, Terry's postseason has been quite remarkable. He's averaging 8.7 points per game, shooting 36.8 percent from behind the three-point line and giving Houston some stellar defense while filling in for injured starter Patri... read more...

  • Minneapolis • Andrew Wiggins hopes to add a few extra pounds this summer to his mix of style, grace, and athleticism. “It will be a focus for me,” the 20-year-old Timberwolves forward said before Monday night’s game against the Jazz. “That’s how you get better around the rim and finish.” The rookie would also like to add some hardware. Wiggins would go on later that night to ... read more...

  • <freeform> Memphis • Quin Snyder couldn’t hold in his frustration. The Utah Jazz coach couldn’t quite hold onto the ball, either. Frustrated by a turnover, a bad pass from Rudy Gobert that wound up in Snyder’s hands on the sideline, the coach bounced the ball hard against the floor during the second half of last night’s games. Unfortunately for Snyder, the ball s... read more...

  • The vacation is over for the Utah Jazz. Which is to say the offseason has officially begun. On Wednesday morning, the Jazz held their first NBA pre-draft workout, a week before the pre-draft combine is to be held in Chicago. As such - before the lottery is announced later in the month - the Jazz can only work out guys who were seniors this past season in college basketball. So what d... read more...

  • Rudy's summertime plans Rudy Gobert thinks he should win this year’s Most Improved Player, he’d love to win a Defensive Player of the Year award and he has his sights set on becoming an all-star. But on Thursday, the playoffs were the only goal the 7-footer said he’s truly focused on. “We definitely want to make the playoffs next year,” he said. “If you watched the secon... read more...

  • <freeform> The first 3-pointer of Derrick Favors’ NBA career came last week against the Golden State Warriors. His second will have to wait. Favors ended up with the ball in his hands and fired a 3-pointer at the buzzer that nearly banked in to tie the game. Alas, it did not. “The play was for Trey or Joe or one of those guys to come out and get the 3,” Favors said, ... read more...
