    Thanks for the analysis. Nice to read it since I didn't get to see the game. Good start for the Jazz, although it's only preseason. We'll see if they can keep it up.

    Standingd, I'm puzzled by your comment. I've seen plenty of games where the Jazz did not box out, did not tip the ball to teammates, and did not control the boards.

    Was at the game last night. Jazz played well overall, good to see Burke play well, he needs a little work on spacing but he'll figure that out. Hayward was aggressive, as was Favors, both missed some easy ones that rimmed out or such. Lucas looked confident and determined, he should be a nice backup point. And Jeremy Evans was really improved, making step-back jumpers and rebounding very well, looks like he's added about 10 pounds of muscle in the off-season.

    One thing was glaring for the Jazz - lack of defense on the pick-and-roll. Golden State killed the Jazz all night with P/R and P/P plays, double screens, etc., surprised they only ran these situationally and not more frequently with the success they had. Speights should fill their 'Carl Landry' role well, he looked solid.

    All in all, nice opening for the Jazz, good things to build on, and the new scoreboards and sound system were great!

    "Moreover, the Jazz did a great job boxing out, tipping the ball to teammates. Rebounding could be a key all season." SERIOUSLY????? When has this ever NOT been true for the JAZZ??
