SUMMARY: Utah Jazz remarkable play continues as a confident connected team dominated the New Orleans Pelicans 133-109

  • The Jazz started rolling early tonight and never let off the gas. The Jazz have not only won 6 straight games they have not blinked for a long time.

  • The strangest part of this offensive explosion is that it directly corresponds to when Rudy Gobert returned, but prior to this turn of events the Jazz offense with Rudy this year had been really sporadic if not dreadful. However, the pick and roll game...

3) Rodney Hood, Utah Jazz. I could have put Joe Johnson from Utah here too, because he wants out and his agent and the team are trying to make that happen. However, the reality is anyone not named Rudy Gobert or Donovan Mitchell is available from Utah, and shooter Rodney Hood is drawing a lot ...
