Woo hoo!!! good job Jazz!! This is the best news I've heard all day!

Great relief to get the monkey off our backs in S.A. Give the devil his due -- Boozer's contribution was crucial at the end.

At the same time, beating a Spurs team without Parker and Ginobli is no cause for getting overconfident. We caught some luck tonight with both of them out.

Yeah baby. Sweep SA?

geezer

I remember the last time they won in San Antonio; that was way back when I had all my teeth. Now I just gum my jello or mac and cheese. Go Jazz

It was a "very depleted" San Antonio, Still it is great to get that 23 game including playoff streak end. Finally!

If nothing else a huge hurdle block has been lifted. I have to say this was a good team win, really everyone contributed, although Maynor had problems tonight. I would have been upset losing to a depleted squad, but now getting some road wins.

I realy really hope this buds well for the future and now a good homestand coming up.

Boozer came through big and I am happy that he seems to be making a better effort at least body language that is making "some attempt" to play defense.

Amen to the Curse

Who cares the Spurs were without Manu and Tony Parker. This was HUGE

Jazz are turning it around. End of the month, 11-6 wait and see. Probably even to 14-6. Keep it rolling Jazz, way to end the streak.

Can't believe we beat them in SA. 2-0 against them this year. Parker and Ginobli play, we lose. They shoot better than 20 something percent from the field, we lose. Still feels good though.

BIG MONKEY CALLING

WOW, IF THIS ISNT A HUGE MONKEY OFF OUR BACKS I DONT KNOW WHAT IS, NICELY DONE JAZZ!

glad to see a win

I am starting to believe in the Jazz. I am also starting to believe that he Jazz have readjusted to Boozer in the line up. Millsap came thru tonight also. The Jazz are good when DWill, Booz, Sap and AK all play well.

The depth makes a difference. SA may be getting old?

By the way, we didnt have memo, cj, or korver so we were equally depleted. So I dont want to hear this depleted spurs excuse. You know what they say about excuses.

The jazz aren't the healthiest team out their. We're missing our starting C and SF, backup PG and SG, and the toughest player on the team (Harp).

It's debatably whether those five players are as important as Manu and Tony, but I don't care because we won and the spurs lost.

Does anyone else think Koufos looked heavier than he did last year? He's noticeably heftier than last season. Maybe that's why Sloan isn't playing him. Get in shape and get minutes.

Nice to Amen. It's NBA with or without some player you have to compete Nobody will give you slack.

Hey win is win why somepple whining about depleted team. Even with Paker and ginobli this SA team isn't good just too old.

TIE GAME IN THE FOURTH

Going into the fourth the game was tied. Jazz still

pulled it out in tough place to play.

Win is a Win

Parker, Ginobili or not, it will go down in history book as a Jazz win, end of story. And it's a road win! The Jazz have lost to depleted teams before, this time around, they stuck to their guts and beat a nemesis for the second time. That's great news for evryone in the Jazz camp. Did I hear confidence builder?
Hey give Carlos Boozer credit!

I agree, the jazz seamed really tight early in the season. It was like booze, and paul felt like they needed to put up big numbers due there contract situations. Now they are just relaxing having fun, and winning. Ak is playing much better to, and the rookies dont hurt. Cant wait for the shooters to come back.
