Top 10 can't-miss Utah Jazz games for 2011-12

#10 - New Year's Eve bash, Dec. 31: Jazz at Spurs Next » 1 of 10 « Prev
Who'd you rather spend your night watching, Dick Clark or Tim Duncan? They're both entertaining old men. No? Fine then, which younger suave star would you rather see perform, Ryan Seacrest or Tony Parker? If that doesn't sell you, then at least this game — the first of four Spurs-Jazz duels — will give you something to do until the countdown begins and the chips run out.

Also worth watching:
Jan. 3 — Bucks at Jazz: Utah's favorite Australian (Andrew Bogut, not Mel Gibson) makes a rare visit;
Jan. 17 — Clippers at Jazz: Blake Griffin might dunk over a Miller-sold Kia;
Jan. 30 — Blazers at Jazz: Wesley Matthews brings his three-goggles to Utah;
Feb. 7 — Jazz at Pacers: Who goes more berserk: Indiana fans for beloved Butler star Gordon Hayward or ex-Ute coach Jim Boylen on the bench?;
March 23 — Denver at Utah: Kosta Koufos brings his dance moves back;
April 21 — Dwight Howard brings his Magic act.

Never been to a professional basketball game in my life. I see no reason to start now (unless Jimmer shows up).

Yeah, I can miss every Jazz game, even if I lived in SLC.

No such thing as a can't miss game.

Laporte, CO

You could miss them all and be just fine.


@The Rock. What an amazingly unnecessary comment. Why even comment on this and post such a negative and useless remark? This is an article pointing out the best games of the season, these aren't even all home games.

Sandy, UT

Dand it, the lockout is over. I thought the NBA would be gone for a year...

Brigham's Brother
Cottonwood Heights, UT

Who cares.

I've been to many games each year, but no more. I don't care about it anymore.

Without a hard-cap Utah is destined to be Portland's/ New Jersey's (any team with deeper pockets) farm league.

In addition, there is no real sport here. It's closer to feats of strength (jumping, shooting etc.) than sport. Amazing athletes to be sure, but no heart, no guts and no real competition. It is just basketainment. Put a hard cap in place and no more favoritism for the top guys, (basically college at a higher skill level) and I'll come back. Until then I'll watch college hoops and go from the Super Bowl to skiing and then southern Utah in March.

You are right. I completely missed that fact. All vacuous posts should be banned.
Oops, I did it again.

Belching Cow
Sandy, UT

I thought they where on strike or something.

Chris Degn
Seoul, Korea

Nah, the Jimmer game should be in the #1 slot, the 2.

Holladay, UT

If you don't like the NBA, don't watch it. I don't care; you probably didn't watch it before.

Not a real sport? Is football a real sport? A sport where 300lb+ mean are considered some of the best ones? Hrm.

Mapleton, Utah

Dead on right Rock. Can't agree more. The only game that will make me see my 2nd NBA game of my life would include The Jimmer.... any maybe that won't be enough to get me out again. I think all the premadonna's should go to Europe and soak those fans for their Euro's.

Give me College sports of any kind over the NBA.

There is no such thing as ten can't miss games in the NBA, not to mention the Jazz.
