The Miller family might be on to something here. Then again, they might not.
It’s tough to get a handle on the Miller-owned Utah Jazz, who are headed for their third consecutive season without a playoff berth. Derrick Favors, at 23 years old, remains a big man any team would love to have. Athletic rookie guard Dante Exum is an intriguing piece. Rodney...

Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter was fined $25,000 for throwing his mouthguard into the stands during Monday night's game in Sacramento.It happened in the third quarter after Kanter was called for an offensive foul. Kanter clearly did not like the call, and he expressed his anger by slammed the ball down on the court, then taking his mouthpiece out of his mouth and tossing it into the...
Gordon Hayward has been quietly biding his time to strike the ballot box for the All-Star game. Well, now it is his year and he has been playing like he really wants to be in that game where no one plays defense.
He has been leading a Jazz team that is not very good, but still better than people thought it would be and doing it in a lot of statistical categories. He leads the team...
Here’s what I wrote about new Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder during the preseason: This happened during a 33-point Utah Jazz win over the Lakers in a preseason game. Now, just imagine what Quin Snyder will look like when the Jazz are fifteen games under .500 midway through the season. After Monday night’s 103-101

“Dr. Heckle” might have messed with the wrong superstar.
Richard Anderson, a Salt Lake City plastic surgeon who has been a Utah Jazz season ticketholder for going on three decades, is claiming a conspiracy after he was abruptly told last week to cease his longtime use of props to heckle opposing players. His crime, he suspects: Distracting LeBron James at the free throw line...

Cha, Ching! Didn’t see this type of cash flow transferring in the hands of shooting guard Alec Burks. Nearly recording above 7.0 points per game during his rookie and sophomore seasons, to 14.0 points and 3.3 rebounds per game last season. Burks is off to a powerful start with 16.5 points on 50 percent shooting from the field, 57 percent from three point land in the last two outings...
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
This is part three of a three-part season preview series. Part one was an analysis of the Utah Jazz’s roster and the players to watch, while part two dealt with projections for the Northwest Division and my prediction on how the Jazz will fare this season against its divisional opponents.
Now, its part three, and this final installment of the Utah Jazz season preview will focus...
The Utah Jazz signed and played five-year-old JP Gibson to a one-day contract on Monday. He paid off by dropping the hammer with a big dunk.
The 2013-14 season was not a memorable one for the Utah Jazz and their fan base. They finished with 25-57 record, the worst finish for the franchise since the dreadful 1981-82 season. Gone is Tyrone Corbin; in is Quin Snyder, who inherits an adolescent team that will still showcase some growing pains, but have no where else to go this year but up.
There was much...
