The Jazz took care of business. Enjoyable game ended too quick due to the blowout. Good shot distribution and balance. Raja did well again and looks more livelier. CJ now has 3 great games in a row. Kirilenko getting more deflections, leading to steals or snagging the loose balls. Jefferson had way in post with Paul. DWIL shooting great lately.

Price and Watson continue to sparkle off the bench. The pass to CJ dunk and double behind the back really pumped the crowd up.

I am glad Jerry is finding minutes for Gordon whenever possible which will help him later in the season.

Some are concerned Cleveland had the board advantage led by 16 offensive rebounds. However, you have to give credit to Samuels in the first half and the youngsters. The played hard and you have to have some compassion for Byron Scott who deserves better.

It is offset though when the team has 30 plus assist and only 9 turnovers.

The Cavs I thought played a respectable game. However, I feel the way Utah played tonight, no one could have beaten them. Lets take that on to the road for 5 game, 9 day trip.

Like the energy the Jazz are coming out and playing with, if they keep it up they should have a good trip. Would love to see them beat Boston at Boston. Can't let down on the road or teams we should beat will beat us.
CJ had a good game, when he plays well the Jazz are real tough, 16 & 1 now for the year when he scores more than 13.
Love when AK plays the 4/ high post, he passes so well, it makes it easier for his teammates. He makes passes most of the other players won't attempt.
Bell has been playing better lately, hopefully he will keep it up.

Jazz play better when Watson is on the floor! They roll when he is out there. AK looks good in the paint! Don't get too excited or expect it each night but cj is playing pretty well (right now) also.

CJ played great. Bell though is really coming on. I like is energy. He is getting his legs under him. Watson is not better than D=Will of course but he is a better defender than D-Will.

Great game! Everything looked good aside from being out rebounded. Raja & CJ are really helping us out, and Memo looks good out there. AK is playing well, and Al even dunked a couple (I always wish he'd DUNK instead of going up softer). Way to share the ball guys. DWill only had what, 9 assists? But he did get some rest and with everyone sharing the ball, things clicked. Starting 5 is looking better but we still get a spark off the bench, which is always a good thing to have. We have a super strong bench! Great job guys!

The bench is amazing! Guys are starting to share the ball and pound the paint and dunk on heads! The last couple of games have been fun to watch! Keep working hard, go Jazz!

Lets see. CJ has back-to-back-to-back good games. Awesome for a guy who can't do anything for more than one game at a time.

If CJ scores the Jazz win. Play him more Jerry, he is the key to you getting another monster contract.

The dunk over JJ could only be done by CJ. Everyone else is too soft to take it over someone with the hammer jam.

@CJ Miles...that dunk was awesome, but I think Ronnie P could have flown up there to do the same. :) That kid isn't afraid of anything.

Miles, Yes C.J is doing good, and I am as happy as anyone about that. But in no way is his performance related to Sloan getting a contract extension. Sloan IS the Jazz.

What the Spazz could only beat the Cavs by 22, At least the Lakers could beat them by 55 :)

Only Zen Masters team runup scores. Winning by 22 or 55 doesn't make any deference. 55 not so cool sportsmanship?
Over all good game. Tone was set in 2d quarter with AK CJ Watson Al and Price. I thing this is best of bunch.

Jerry Sloan has been in the NBA for about 35-40 years...he is in the Hall of Fame...cj had 3 decent games and a "hammer jam"!
