COMING ATTRACTIONS

Monday: at Memphis, 6 p.m. (Root)

The last time the Jazz played here, DeMarre Carroll's head was smacked so hard a tooth was knocked to the back of his mouth. Kinda like Utah's trip so far.

Wednesday: vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 7 p.m. (Root)

Regardless of what happens tonight at the FedEx Forum, coming home will be a relief for the Jazz. Bigger relief? They host the one-win Lakers.

Friday: at Denver, 8:30 p.m. (ESPN)

Taking a page from BYU football's TV book, the Jazz fly over the Rockies for a late, nationally televised game against the struggling Nuggets (0-3).

Saturday: vs. Phoenix, 7 p.m. (Root)

Comment on this story

Here's guessing Steve Nash didn't expect the Lakers to be worse than the Suns when he ditched Phoenix to join forces with Kobe et al.

Who's Hot: Mo Williams

Point guard providing leadership, grit and offensive playmaking.

Who's Not: Al Jefferson

Last year's leading scorer is only averaging 12.7 ppg on 42.5 FG percent.

The BIG stat: 99.7

Jazz are only 1-2, but their offense has been good — after the first quarter, at least. Utah averages 99.7 points (10th in NBA) but just 20.3 in the opening period.
