    Gobert said it all: "the Jazz are a good team". The issues are health and playing together. Snyder continues to put some strange combinations on the floor at times and some people are trying too hard and being a bit selfish. When the Jazz have 5 players on the floor doing their job, it is a beautiful thing to watch. Control of the "Mitchel show" is the number one problem/goal.

    I thought the first technical against KAT was for throwing an elbow at Rubio after a play. Not sure what he said or why for the second one though.

    After seeing them on the court at the same time, it's clear why Minnesota brought Teague in to replace Rubio. Still, I think Ricky is a very good fit for the Jazz, and a better defender and assister than Teague.

    That was an incredibly fun win. Tempers flaring. TWolves cheap shot--ing and getting tossed. Two really tough teams going at it. The TWolves are going to be a handful for years. But the Jazz are growing up right alongside of them.
    On another note-- I listened to Doris Burke call the game for ESPN and I'm now convinced she's the best in the business. Our Jazz announcers should listen to her and take a cue. She doesn't talk food binges, candy, strange nicknames or goofy and annoying promotions. She tells you what's going on and what she is seeing. She's the first announcer this season I've heard call Donovan "a ferocious defender for a rookie" and she correctly pointed out that although Karl Anthony Towns wasn't thinking when he got the second T--that the ref may have been a little too quick on the trigger . Sometimes you forget what fun it can be to watch a game called by top notch announcers, but it really makes a difference.
