Utah Jazz extra

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)

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.
