    The Jazz return to Utah after going 3-0 on their most recent road trip, making for an 11-game road winning streak and a 6-game winning streak overall.

    The Jazz are back after a hot Sunday afternoon in the Bayou:

    - Ricky Rubio keeps the Jazz in the game with 30 points and 10 boards.
    - Joe Ingles drops 20.
    - Rudy goes for 19 points and 16 boards while holding Davis scoreless in the 4th on 0-2 shooting.
    - Donovan surges the Jazz to victory in the second half with 18 points in 3 minutes and 25 seconds…

    They seek to keep the streak alive against the Bad Boys of Detroit.

    Actually, not these ones. In fact, their current team is composed of cupcakes, including SVG's trade-deadline desperation move for this guy and his $150M price tag over 4.5 years:

    They also no longer have this guy:

    (The one on the left; they’ve still got the one on the right.)

    It’s a shame to see what’s happened to Detroit over the years.

    We’ll see how much firepower SVG brings.

    I guess now we finally know who the hell “Cousin Jeffery” was.

    The Jazz knocked off the Pistons in overtime in Detroit the last time these two teams faced off.

    And SVG may have to dig deep into his bench and pull out a wild card if he wants any chance in this one:

    But I think DL has some plans of his own:

    Don’t miss it!

    Cousin Jeffery lolz.

    As a reminder where we were last time we faced Detroit, (inspired by Krag's latest column), the Jazz were 19-28 when we faced Detroit on Jan. 24. Not only that, but with 3 minutes to go we were down 9. Rubio took a nasty hit in the face, left the floor, got temporarily patched up, and returned to finish the game. We closed the quarter on a 10-1 run to force overtime, in spite of a terrible turnover by Rubio with under ten seconds to go. He made up for it with a sneaky inbound assist from under the basket to Jingling Joe Ingles. Outscored them by 3 in OT, 98-95. (Should've been 100; Gobert missed two free throws with a second left. Tsk, tsk.)

    Skip a night and the Jazz were in Toronto where Mitchell found Rubio for the game-winning go-ahead 3 FTW. That set Utah up for the absolute beat-down against Golden State four days later. Utah has gone 17-2 since that Detroit win.

    Ah... I do. Wasn’t sure it was revenge worthy but you can be damn sure Rudy remembers and has put Blake on his list of players to kill.

    Since I don’t really know where to put this I’ll post it here. Here is an interview with Rudy on Fox13 that kind of goes into when Hayward left and it makes me like him even a little less. The dude had no respect for this organization or teammates here and is quite a coward. The fact Rudy reached out and just wanted some type of communication on his decision and never got anything back is a joke. The fact he text Dennis Lyndsey when he left is a joke, Hayward as a whole in a Jazz uniform was a joke, and the way he left is just terrible. Not to mention it seems like other than some small talk on games Rudy and him haven’t communicated since. Lots of other questions asked in the interview. Just figured I’d post it somewhere while things are a bit slow today, and had to rant a little. I’ll end the rant with the only medicine that can cure such disgust....Donovan Mitchell.

    rudy + favors will have to be on their A game. The piston's front court is still quite damn dangerous.

    Great interview. I'm not familiar with the show... why is it called "Three Questions"? He obviously asked way more than that.

    Because he asked theee questions. He asked more, but before he asked more, he asked three.

    This sounds like the win streak answer recycled.

    Does that somehow invalidate its truth?

    Is "Three Questions" a spoof of "Between Two Ferns"

    That was an incredibly awkward interview but I loved hearing Rudy's responses.

    P.S. Hayward is a real chicken turd.

    It’s always an awkward interview, but Rudy was nice to hear from.
