Quote:
Trey Burke was ranked low because of his low shooting percentage as well as his poor defense

not to mention his mid range game in the modern NBA

Quote:
Shelvin Mack upgraded the position somewhat over the last third of the season when he averaged 12.7 points in 27 starts.

best since Deron

Quote:
Last year’s two starters, Mack and Neto, will most likely be the team’s third and fourth point guards, giving the Jazz an unusual amount of depth.

still can't see Mack not being a big part of the rotation and Neto should be playing while Burks and Hayward are out anyway

Quote:
Hill is not known as a big assist guy, averaging just 3.3 for his career with a best of 5.1 in 2014-15.

Which is why he should be at the 2 next to Mack

Quote:
Derrick Favors, who’s been out the past few weeks while dealing with IT band and knee issues, participated in part of Sunday’s practice.

Part of practice sounds like he's still out to me.

Quote:
Based on their preseason games, the Jazz would likely begin the season with a starting lineup of George Hill, Hood, Joe Johnson, Diaw and Rudy Gobert if both Hayward and Favors are sidelined Tuesday night.

Remember last year that the pre-season backcourt was different than the regular season one. I'd probably go Mack, Hill and Ingles myself.

Quote:
It's possible that he plays Tuesday in the opener, but maybe more likely that the Jazz take advantage of the break and wait a few more days, breaking him in against an easier opponent at home against the Los Angeles Lakers Friday.

Don't need him in that game.

Quote:
But it may not be the end of Johnson in a Jazz uniform.

"That's not to close the door on anything eve. We had to waive him a year ago and ended up picking him back up," Snyder pointed out. "You never know."
Doubt he'll be available long

Quote:
Finally, he'll be able to show off what he can do against the game's elite.

Get to show rather he even deserves to be out there

I think one of the reasons that they’re in such good position now besides the addition of some players to add more quality depth, is because Quin Snyder has done such a great job in building up the habits and you know, their culture so that they are hard-playing.

We'll soon see what Snyder, Lindsey and the rest of the team is really made of because so far all I've seen is that Rudy makes them competitive. Without him they've sucked.

Quote:
Last year, his injuries sidelined him for an extended stretch and the Jazz struggled during those games.

when Rudy was out as well

Quote:
No GM can plan for injuries. In life and basketball

sure he can and he has. Too bad he didn't do it last year. They should be competing at a high level with this roster as long as Rudy is playing. Without him I wouldn't be as confident but we'll see.

Quote:
One thing is for certain — these men deserve the playoffs.

they do?

Egos will play a big part in that idea struggling to get off the ground.

dk how y'all do game threads here, but got this one put together if y'all wanna use it:

VS
Portland Trail Blazers (0-0) VS Utah Jazz (0-0)

WHEN: Tuesday, October 25th at 7:00 PM PST/10:00 PM EST
WHERE: Moda Center in Portland, Oregon





Qs Quote:
Utah is a popular "dark-horse" pick, thus shedding that title, while Portland has high ambitions led by Lillard and his chase for an MVP award. A great early match-up between two of the sides expected to fight for the fourth seed and a potential first round preview. No Hayward will be tough for Utah, but they do have the depth to fight through.


Q's Prediction:
Blazers Win 103-95

Q's Quick Preview

Oh certainly. The perception of the D-league has been changing though.

thanks qrich!

Hood is not a projected starter? Favors is probable?
