    Ive mentioned him 14 times counting the day he was traded in mid December. Most of those posts were in the traded thread and in the thread where a poster brought up his one good game as a Cav. That’s “a lot” to you?

    I brought him up today because clarkson was the best player on the court again and has performed admirably. And to think we got him for Exum? What a steal!

    He's not gone. His spirit still lives on in Jordan Clarkson. Clarkson is The Phoenix.

    The one sobering fact from last night is the Jazz collapse in the last minute until Bogey's 3 pointer. It looks like we have a comfortable lead and then Spida misses a 3 and the Rockets hit two threes.

    I'm sad I missed this one... I'm hoping we see more Juwan minutes... wanting to see if his +11 was fluky or if he is doing good stuff out there.

    Super fluky as he played like 3 minutes and all were during the minivan attack. His second stint he played better D. Hope to see more.

    I like him a lot... I think he will be one of those guys that does under the radar things that help you win. Maybe. Mostly just want to see if any of these guys are definite keepers for next year.

    Thanks for sharing. Clarkson and Conley have been playing extremely well and it’s great to hear they are two of the best isolation players efficiency wise. It will help us in the playoffs.

    Symphony to my ears. There is no point to a switching defense if your man can't stay in front of his switch. Jazz just ran the Clarkson/Conley show last night. Attacked the switch before it even happened/exploited it when it did against a mismatch. Quick decisions, no hesitation to allow the defense to recover. Something we couldn't do with last year's personnel (Joe, Bogie and Rudy have a harder time creating/getting involved though). Watch 0:16, 0:22, 0:38, 0:50, 1:05, 1:43, etc



    We need bigger emphasis on perimeter defense and on chemistry on offense, particularly between Conley/Gobert and Joe.

    Has anyone read Tony Jones last article? I think he talks about finally being able to beat the Rocket's defense.

    Rewatching the game winner it looks like the Houston players actually straighen him out by bumping into him as he is in mid-jump. Because of this, they help his shot arc go more on target with the hoop and ultimately through it.

    What ever works I guess!

    I remember. He and Jeff Monaco. Only time SUU made it into the NCAA tourney. House could jump out of the building.

    All I could find of him.

    Fred House, Eddie Gill, Herald the Show Arceneaux, Alex Jensen, Hanno Möttölä, Andre Miller, KVH...


    Those were the days teams from Utah actually won in the Big Dance. Now, we're lucky if we have 1 team make it and if they do, they're one and done.

    Hopefully UVU makes it for the first time in the next few years under Mark Madson.

    I thought that was the best one. Thought you were gonna do Bombtrack for the Rage song.

    In that tube the best point guard play is @1:09 mark, he creates the situation with Rudy that collapses the corner defender down for a wide open 3

    Long story short. The Jazz offense is was and will be better without Conley.
    It's like this, say you have a car that's running awesome. Then you bolt a turbo to it and now the transmission is slipping the rear end is making a weird noise and the brakes aren't good enough. Yeah the turbo is just fine but it screws up the car.
