To kick off this game thread I will bring the this season's ramdon statistic that I like the most. Miye Oni Win %.
In 35 games Oni played, Jazz won 32 or 91,43%. That's good for 2nd in NBA History for players with 30+ games, behind Chris Andersen whom won 39 in 42 (92,9%) playing for the Heat in 12-13 season.
To pass Andersen and be 1st all time, Oni would have to play and win another 8 games and obviously no losses, as one loss move the percentage ~2,5% down. I guess the hard part of this are the final games of the season where the Jazz will already have secured the 1st place overall and reserves/third unit will be getting more minutes, I assume. Until then Oni will likely play only on blowout wins (very common theses days) or losses (very rare). It's possible, but very unlikely.

I'm so excited for this week! Mavs, Suns and Blazers. I got bored of us beating up on ****** teams and can't wait to finally play some of the best teams in the west. I'll be happy if we can win 2 of these next 3.

Agreed. Should be informative even if it isn't fun.

I wish someone were here to tell us if this is a must-win game or not. As of right now, we have no idea! Could be a trap game.

I don’t know if it’s a must-win game, but I know in the private coach’s forum, Quin is saying that this is a must-not-get-triple-double-or-break-records game. But he says that every game so I dunno.

You say that the Jazz have been beating up on ****** teams, but consider this...Memphis is 6-3 in their last nine games. All three losses were to the Jazz. So other than playing against the Jazz steamroller, the Grizzlies are a pretty good team lately. It just seems like the Jazz have been beating upon ****** teams because the Jazz are so damned good. Not all of the opponents have been ******, however.

Just a reminder that Rudy is averaging 24 and 16 against the Mavs this year. Also, it appears that Conley is OUT for tonight.

All I meant by my post was that I'm really excited to watch us play some of the best teams in the west this week and I'm looking forward to what should be really good, competitive games. I didn't mean to minimize how good the Jazz have been.

Are you sure about Conley? None of the Jazz reporters have tweeted anything about him being out tonight.

I can confirm this is a must win game. Plan will be to play the starters 38+ minutes if we are up 20+ and there are no potential records up for grabs and if Rick Carlisle doesn’t look too sad about how far down they are.
