There’s no word yet about when the Utah Jazz will make up the Saturday night game against the Washington Wizards that was postponed because of the massive snowstorm on the East Coast.
Trevor Booker doesn’t want his All-Star Week break disrupted (most NBA teams don’t play until Friday after the Sunday game), but he also doesn’t want any part of a three-games-in-three-nights scenario.
“Looking at the schedule, I don’t know when they can pencil that game in,” Booker said. “It will be interesting, because we’ve got a pretty full schedule. We can’t have three games in three nights. I’ve done that before, during the lockout, but it’s definitely no fun.”
Snyder said he doesn’t know what will happen.
“I don’t know personally,” he said. “I’m just grateful we didn’t get stuck. We were able to get out of there ahead of the storm that would have made the road trip a grueling one because we would have gotten back who knows when. I would guess whenever that games comes, we won’t have the additional challenges of the weather.”
JAZZ NOTES: When the Jazz and Pistons met earlier in the season in Detroit, a 92-87 Pistons’ win, it was the season opener for Utah and the second game for the Pistons, who won the night before at Atlanta. Former Oklahoma City guard Reggie Jackson leads the Pistons in scoring at 18.9 ppg, followed by Drummond at 17.3. Other starters are Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (14.8 ppg), Marcus Morris (14.0 ppg) and Ersay Ilyasova (11.2 ppg). The Pistons have been very stable this season, using the same starting lineup for 43 of their 44 games. The Jazz have won 17 of the last 20 meetings between the two teams, including both games last season.
