Utah Jazz Update

25 01 2010

There wasn’t much to recap about the game Saturday between the Jazz and the Nets.  The Jazz won in a blow away fashion, 116-83.  The Nets are just awful, and if the Jazz hadn’t beaten them, like most college teams could, I would most likely renounce my fanship.  Boozer, Okur, and Millsap all had at least 20 points to lead the way for the Jazz.

Tonight, the Jazz play host to the Phoenix Suns.  The Suns have been struggling as of late, and more importantly, struggling on the road, only winning one road game since November.  The Jazz, who have won six out of their last seven games,  obviously look to remain hot and extend their current home winning streak to six.  Steve Nash only needs two more assists to reach 8,000 as only the eight player in the NBA’s.  Tonight’s game starts a tough stretch for the Jazz who play six out of their next seven against teams ahead of them in the playoff standing.  The Jazz are currently sitting in the sixth spot, but with the western conference wide open, and a couple key winning streaks, they could make a push at a much higher seed.  There are no injuries for tonight’s game.

Sundiata Gaines will remain with the team for the remainder of the season.  After hitting a game winning shot against the Cavs, Gaines secured his spot on the team, which he should have.  While Gaines stays with the team, Kosta Koufos has been sent to the Utah Flash, the Jazz D-League affiliate.  Koufos, who has only played in 76 minutes this season, desperatly needs playing time, and the Jazz hope time with the Flash will help.  He will play in his first game tonight.

We will be giving Jazz updates all season long.
