    For the record, censoring the a-word only makes sentences like this one seem a lot more crass. Fill in that blank.

    I don’t think we deliberately threw any games

    Jazz have an opportunity to show the rest of the league this is a must win game.

    Is Friday’s game the most important game of the season?

    Without Mike and Don this will be a really tall order, even though they are without Murray. They're something like 8-2 over the last ten and Joker has been playing out of his gourd. My heart says Jazz, my gut says Denver.

    Quotes from Spurs' forums-"Jazz sure do have a monopoly on frumpy players with flabby dad bods. It’s inspiring, really"

    I had the same thought. I remember feeling so hopeless against those Spurs teams, and the roles have entirely reversed. Love seeing other people recognize and see in real time what Rudy does.

    Mitchell injury

    Think about the difference between running and jumping on a hard wood floor versus a soccer pitch or football field. You seem to think we can compare sports across the board, but that isn't how it works.

    Mitchell injury

    I wonder if today's NBA is more physically dangerous than in previous decades. Not because of foul rules, but perhaps because players appear to be more athletic, playing more above the rim, with greater speed, etc. How many great players in the 90s were blowing ACLs? How many season-ending...

    I can sympathize with some of the pessimism. I sometimes indulge in a bit of psychological protection, not wanting to have such high hopes in case they are dashed. It can be really painful, caring about that ultimate prize and then watching things fall apart! I feel like I'm still emotionally...

    That Wolves game y'all. Really not feeling good about all the usage Ingles and Conley have to put in to maintain our seed. :/

    Yup. We're either better or we're not.

    I like the trash talk a bit. Not really Utah PR's style, but it's fun.

    SIAP - Just a disgusting piece of journalism. Hit piece in the SF Chronicle.

    I agree with this, which is one reason I think the article about Ryan isn't helpful or interesting. It's a lazy hitpiece.

    These are all trap games as far as I'm concerned. Take care of business, stay healthy, that is all!

    Niang is a crucial piece for us. Smaller contract, good overall impact. He's not an all-star, but he's playing his role this season better than ever. His defense is much improved. He's passable rather than a net negative now.
