    Looks like Jazz have found yet another good point guard and a gem of a player. A rookie backcourt and beat a good team on the road. Did I mention I am thrilled the Jazz did not draft Ball that went to the lakers. His dad is driving the lakers nuts. Thank you lakers..

    Good things are coming. Looking at the schedule for the rest of the season and we have more home games than away games, and seem to have most of the difficult games out of the way. I would say there is a pretty great chance of making the playoffs. Even more exciting is what is going to happen next year, if everyone stays healthy we could be real contenders next year.

    The Miami Heat had a run like that last year and did not make the playoffs. We will make the playoffs. This team with Rudy is unstoppable.

    You could see Lillard's body language when there was still a possibility of Portland climbing back into this game. He seemed to be saying to his team--"I can't do this alone."

    Big welcome to Jae!!! Played loose and free and with real energy.

    The Jazz are actually fun to watch again! Nothing like winning to make that happen. Some have asked how the organization could trade a guy like Rodney Hood in the middle of such an upswing. The answer is easy: consistency from guys like Joe Ingles and Royce O’Neale. Now throw into the mix Jae Crowder. Ya gotta love it, baby!

    Is this a first in NBA history? Has a team ever won nine straight games only to remain in last place, only to remain in the division cellar? Utah is still two games below any other team in the Northwest Division.
