    Offical score keeper counted Harris with a shot missed. But this is where the Jazz have fun and confidence. Al knew to go up and finish the shot. Leaving less than a second on the game clock was brilliant. Everyone is playing hard and having fun. Where Tinsley dribbled the ball through that big tall skinny defender then picked up his dribble which was legal and made a jump shot was great. Then last night Hayward passed the ball through a King defenders legs to Al who made the shot. No more trading now until just before and during the draft..

    The Jazz go from beating the first place team in the North West Division at home, to barely beating the last place team in the Pacific Division. What does that tell you.

    Interesting that the only King hitting threes on a bad trey-shooting night only got 8 minutes floor time. That helped the Jazz, who nearly completely folded in the 4th.

    Great win for the Jazz. They're doing better (because of team defense) than I expected of them. Might make the playoffs after all.

    Wondering if the injury bug is going to be an ongoing theme for the rest of the year. Nice, though, that the Jazz are able to win in spite of it.

    I don't know what the problem is with fans that can't accept a win without giving a lecture on how they would have coached or played the game better--but I do know how to solve that problem.

    Great game! I say we give Harris an assist on that last play. Whatever his intention, if it had been closer to the basket it would have been offensive interference when Al tipped it in. Either way, I'll take it!

    Burks will shine for years to come in this league. We are watching an allstar in the making. Enjoy!

    Big road win in last second. Telling decision by the coach to replace Miles with Burks at the end I can't wait to watch the game tonight. Jazz showing major depth, even at point guard with Tinsley's fine playing of late.

    its a great win and im very happy they pulled it off...but...i think we could've crashed the boards more...box out...and get rebounds...i think only Favors hit double digit on the boards...i hope the quartet...of favors millsap al jefferson and kanter...would grab every rebound there is...

    It is true. Interior Defense a problem, especially if Favors cannot clean up the mess. I will say however, this is a game we lose last time up in Sacramento. They are now a team that is finally playing as just that a team. They are much improved and it was a great game. This team is showing the grit that personified Jerry's strength as a coach. The way to battle through runs and adversity in games. Again I applaud Corbin for being open and finishing this game with Burks over CJ. It shows the Rookie a lot of confidence and he made a huge shot to put us in position to win. They could not handle Al again. Favors again a big force and Gordon continues to sparkle off that 2nd Unit. He has gained so much confidence and is making plays on Defense also. He did a good job. I thought Carroll even helped them with some decent minutes as well. Tinsley again did a great job. I like this rotation.

    We saw Tyrke Evans exploit our interior defense.

    The Jazz should be able to trade Miles and Bell and bring 1 more veteran.
    I love to see Favors, Hayward, Kanter and Burks playing, more minutes, more experience and quality!
    GO JAZZ!!!
    LA, OK and now the kings! I love it!
