Utah Jazz extra: The 'OOOOs!' have it, where's Beyonce, Jimmer got Jazzed?
"It was his first time here," Miles said. "I don't know if it was so much rattled than that he was so much excited (and) he wanted to do well so bad. ... He'll be all right, though."
But will the divided fanbase?
Jazz vs. Trail Blazers, Monday, 7 p.m. (ROOT)
This one features two of the most underappreciated power forwards — LaMarcus Aldridge and Paul Millsap — and a guard Jazz fans still mourn losing.
Jazz vs. Clippers, Wednesday, 8:30 p.m. (ESPN, ROOT)
A national audience will watch the high-flying alley-oop act from ... yep, Salt Lob City. D-Will's nemesis will be available this time (no, not Jerry Sloan).
Jazz at Warriors, Thursday, 8:30 p.m. (ROOT)
Jazz are in a win-win situation. Win and they, well, win. Lose and they boost draft day cause. They get Warriors' top pick as long as it isn't top seven.
Jazz vs. Lakers, Saturday, 7 p.m. (ROOT)
Utah fans might get depressed if they look too closely at the standings and see how the Lakers only have two road wins this year — one at ESA. Oops, sorry.
HOT: Enes Kanter
Rookie had a career-high 12 points in Dallas, and made 8 of 14 field goals last week. Plus, he continues to be a rebounding beast.
NOT: Al Jefferson
Overall, his scoring has been there, but Big Al hasn't shot well (14-for-32 last week) and he's hampered by ankle tendinitis.
THE BIG STAT
By the time they wrap up this current home stand and the friendly portion of their schedule on Wednesday, the Jazz will have played 14 of 20 games at EnergySolutions Arena. Starting Thursday, they'll be away from home in 27 of 46 contests (58.7 percent of their remaining schedule).
