    "JC is finding ways to just stay the course," Jazz coach Will Hardy said. "He's in a different role this year than he has been the last couple of years, and that's an adjustment. That's no small thing what he's doing. He's playing with a lot of different players, and so he's finding his shots and his spots a little bit differently than he has in the past."
    looks the same to me other than he's starting and playing more. Hopefully someone likes the bum

    Minnesota reportedly was wary of including forward Jaden McDaniels in the blockbuster trade for Gobert, but on Friday, it was Vanderbilt who looked like the better young piece.
    he's not better. McDaniels looks good. Serious hops

    Some of the stuff that the T-Wolves are going to have to work through is going to include learning not to over-help. This was an issue that Conley had a lot in his first year with the Jazz. Trusting that Gobert can clean up if someone gets by an outer defender is not an easy habit to make and can often lead to unnecessary fouls. And it’s made more difficult for a team like the Timberwolves because they aren’t getting a lot of defensive aggressiveness from their perimeter players. Sound familiar?
    Edwards is talking up a big game at the defensive end like Mitchell

    For the Jazz we’re starting to see some players shine. Speaking of Lauri Markkanen, he continues to impress. Tonight he was 10/23 from the field for 24 points. He hit just 2/10 from three so he might have had an even bigger night had his 3-ball been falling. He also grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 5 assists. Markannen is starting to really flourish and it looks like his excellent play in Eurobasket is carrying over. Can he continue this level of play? If he can, the Jazz may be looking at a much different season than we expected.
    might have had a bigger game if he hadn't settled for 3's

    Jarred Vanderbilt is starting to make a case for the NBA All-DefensiveTeam. Vanderbilt was all over the place tonight on the defensive end. Whether it was clogging lanes and getting steals (4), or having a knack for being in the right place at the right time (13 rebounds), he looks like a modern version of Dennis Rodman with his intense energy and defense. Oh and this was all in 24 minutes. That is going to be one of the big things for Vanderbilt to improve on is his ability to stay out of foul trouble. He fouled out of the Jazz’s first game and ended this one with 5. The more he can stay on the floor, the more he will impact the game. That will be hard because Vanderbilt plays with incredible energy and intensity and is constantly flying around. Perhaps if he gains a bigger reputation, the officials won’t be so ticky-tack with their calls.
    unless he improves offensively you're not going to want him for big minutes. High energy role player

    Finally, the other difference maker for this team is Mike Conley. He led the team in plus-minus and it’s not surprising. He’s had a great start to the season and is managing the game at an elite level. Tonight he ended the game with 11 assists. His presence on the floor makes everyone better and as long as he’s on the Jazz, expect them to have an impressive offense. Right now, they’re ranked #3 in the NBA and you can attribute a lot of that to Mike Conley.
    without him they will not be good. No one else can run the O

    Eric Walden: Rudy Gobert, on French national teammate and top prospect Victor Wembanyama: “He’s unique, something the world has never seen. … He’s taller than me, longer than me. He can space the floor, he can pass. But (he) also wants to play defense. … And he just loves to win.” pic.twitter.com/f7qJos9uZF

    Clarkson clapped it up. He screamed “yeeeeahhhhhhh,” letting Gobert know in zero uncertain terms what was at stake with the two foul shots. The eye contact between the two was unmistakable. Gobert let loose a wry grin. He missed both. The Jazz went on to win 132-126 in a game they had no business winning on paper. And, just like that, the Jazz are an unlikely 2-0 on the young season, with the wins coming against Minnesota and the Denver Nuggets. “Rudy will always be my brother,” Clarkson said. “But I needed him to miss those two free throws.”

    This time around, Vanderbilt and Beasley might be here to see the fruits of their labor.
    doubt Beasley is here in March. Might have to move Vanderbilt too with Udoka around

    The two teams both looked very good, and it was great to see Markkanen and Sexton put in the work. It looks like Sexton is still on a minutes restriction, as six players had more time clocked in than Sexton, who played just 21 minutes. Markkanen is starting for the Jazz going forward, playing alongside two other power forwards for a very weird starting lineup that included Kelly Olynyk and Jarred Vanderbilt.
    don't think he's on a minute restriction. Just showcasing Conley and Clarkson

    Derek Bodner: Final: Sixers lose to the Spurs 114-105, falling to 0-3 on the season. Embiid had 40 on 14-25 shooting, but Harden shot just 4-18 and the Sixers’ perimeter defense was burned by Vassell (22) and Johnson (21) as the Spurs shot 16-38 from deep.

    Jazz will get a good pick if the Sixers somehow suck!
