Jazz balancing reality and optimism as season begins

Over the course of an 82-game season, a head coach, even a rookie head coach, knows he only can only give so many inspiring speeches before they start to ring hollow. So don't expect Quin Snyder to ask his Utah Jazz to win one for the Gipper before Wednesday night's season opener. "It's the first game. We run up the hill and get shot. Charge!" Snyder imagined...

Utah Jazz – New Year, Same Result?

The 2014 off-season was a crazy one for the Utah Jazz.  The team parted ways with Head Coach Tyrone Corbin, and picked up Quin Snyder as his replacement.  The team let Gordon Hayward test the waters of free agency, only to match a max offer from the Charlotte Hornets.  They may have struck NBA gold when both Dante Exum and Rodney Hood fell to them in the draft.  And they parted...

Trey Burke Looks to Blossom in his Second Season With the Utah Jazz

Trey Burke quietly had a pretty productive rookie season. The point guard out of Columbus, Ohio made the 1st team All-Rookie team, and was the catalyst to a young Utah Jazz team. I will say that last season’s rookie class was forgettable, but I feel that Burke was one of few gems in that rookie class. Burke, who is going into his second season will look to blossom in his second...

How the Utah Jazz fared in NBARank

The #NBARank is a fun “one committee’s opinion” piece that starts a conversation. Sure, they’ll be wrong on some projections, overvaluing some and undervaluing others. They undervalued six or seven players on the Suns team last year, because who knew new coach Jeff Hornacek was going to lead almost all of them to career-best years? So now that’s I’ve got the emphasis...

I’m not sure you can blame it on Kobe’s old age, but it was a hell of a move. Alec Burks crossed over Bryant with a beautiful behind-the-back move that left one of the leagues all time great defenders frozen in his tracks. h/t Danny Hazan
