Utah Jazz News – 2013 Jazz Updates
11/12/13 - So far, the Utah Jazz are winless
after 8 games. In what supposed to be a rebuilding season, the roster’s young players have struggled immensely along the string of away-games against strong, playoff worthy, opponents. Now, the Jazz are eager for their first set of consecutive home games, with hopes of pulling matching victories this week backed by their loyal (and notoriously loud) fans. Later this month (Nov 25), the Bulls will pay a visit to EnergySolutions Arena, where Chicago's veteran frontcourt players will test the talent of Utah's youth. The imminent face off between Derrick Rose and Trey Burke have the Jazz fanbase beset with anticipation. In other news, the Utah Jazz announced today that guard Jamaal Tinsley, who has appeared in all 8 games, has been waived from the team.
9/6/13 - With the offseason departures of key 2012-13 contributors Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, and Mo Williams, the Jazz are clearly in rebuilding mode. Entering his third full year as head coach, Tyron Corbin hopes for the improvement of the team’s young, talented frontcourt, which includes Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, and Gordon Hayward. Rookie first-round pick Trey Burke is expected to step in and contribute immediately after leading Michigan to the 2013 Final Four Championship Game
3/6/13 - The 2013 Utah Jazz are hoping to improve on last year's short-lived appearance in the NBA postseason, when they were swept by San Antonio. So far this year, they are in the playoff hunt, standing third in the Northwest Division behind Oklahoma City and Denver. The Jazz are getting it done with a number of contributions, most notably from center Al Jefferson, who leads the squad in both scoring and rebounding. Forward Paul Millsap is leading in steals per game, while Mo Williams is leading in assists per game. While Randy Foye and Marvin Williams post key minutes as starters, additional bench contributions are coming from Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, and Jamaal Tinsley. Overall, the Jazz are above average in scoring as a team, while slightly below average in points allowed per game; Coach Tyrone Corbin definitely has his work cut out for himself; if the Jazz are to have any chance at a deeper playoff run than last year, they will need to start working it on the defensive end of the court, getting stops while ensuring they keep their scoring average up. The faithful who are attending games at EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City have to be hoping to move up in the standings!
