The Utah Jazz won their fifth game of the season last night, coming back from 17 down in the first half to blow the doors off the (still) woefully under-manned Oklahoma City Thunder.
It’s Friday night, and I’m about to head out. But first, let’s see how the Knicks did tonight. What’s that? A guy who is shooting 30.7% on the season hit a ridiculous, deep corner two at the buzzer to win? Sounds about right. Could someone get J.R. Smith a drink? It looks like he could
Gordon Hayward had himself a highlight reel night in Salt Lake City Wednesday night, starting with this chase down block on LeBron James, followed by a dunk on the other end. With the Jazz leading 96-90 late in the fourth quarter, that play should have stood alone as the top highlight of the game. Unfortunately,
Gordon Hayward re-signed with the Utah Jazz this summer for 4 years and $62 million, so it would only be appropriate that he also get a really sweet billboard out of the deal as well. Also, as if the real thing wasn’t enough, some crafty folks over the NBA sub-Reddit decided to have some fun

Preseason contests in sports generally don’t matter in terms of stats or wins and losses, but the Utah Jazz made sure last night’s intra-squad scrimmage had some significance for five-year old JP Gibbons.

In the wake of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin “bullying” incident last fall, the NBA sent a memo to all 30 teams to reiterate the league’s laundry list of activities that could be considered acts of bullying and/or hazing. Aside from standard workplace no-nos (no physical abuse; no abuse based on race, religion, gender, age, sexuality;
JJ Hickson had a nice night for the Denver Nuggets with 21 points and 10 boards, but the highlight was this soul-stealing dunk on Derrick Favors and the Utah Jazz.
