What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Jazz have opened 6-of-8 from 3-point range. – 9:27 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Penalties have gotten Utah off schedule a few times here in this first half. Utes are usually more disciplined than what they’ve shown here. – 9:27 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
The Jazz are just raining 3 balls out here. – 9:26 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
There’s a reason Horford is pissed off after the Gobert offensive rebound. He worked hard to against Bogdanovic & challenged well, he didn’t need Rob to come over and help there. Williams needs to be more disciplined, knowing who he’s leaving on that. Wasted Al’s effort. – 9:25 PM

Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Oregon’s offense is a hot mess.
I thought Oregon built a massive OL to bang with the major programs in the national playoffs.
They can’t even move Utah. Ducks have 28 yards rushing late in the 2nd. – 9:24 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Key drive coming here for Utah.
Still up 14-0, 4:04 before halftime, Oregon gets the rock out of the locker room.
The last two drives ended in Rising INTs. – 9:23 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Celtics should be thanking the heavens for Al Horford. – 9:23 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Two early fouls on Rob Williams. That last one came because he decided to take a bad, late contest and let Gobert get to the boards. – 9:21 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah has been close a couple of times to blowing this thing open. It has not done so.
This is a game still. Very much so. – 9:21 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
When the offense is scuffling, Boston should get Horford some touches in the post. He’s got an advantage over O’Neale and Bogdanovic there. If Gobert helps, should open passing lanes. – 9:20 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
That’s two quick fouls on the Celtics’ Robert Williams, who has not been able to handle Rudy on the glass thus far. Grant Williams checks in. – 9:20 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
I have a feeling Jazz fans are going to boo Freedom tonight – 9:18 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
The Celtics simply cannot settle for Schröder jumpers in general. This offense needs to work a lot harder – 9:17 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Mike Conley shooting continues to be a good thing. He’s 3-3 — all from 3 — for 9p, as the Jazz get out to a 14-2 lead. Celtics, shooting 1-6 overall, call a timeout with 8:14 left 1Q. – 9:17 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Mike Conley’s having himself a quarter. He’s got 9 points on three 3s (pulling up deeper than normal, too). Jazz lead 14-2 . – 9:17 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ok Conley. Damn.
He’s got three triples already. Jazz lead 14-2. Timeout Celtics. – 9:17 PM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
The Force is strong with Mike tonight pic.twitter.com/FIDeXBIvOy9:16 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz up 14-2 to start against the Celtics, thanks essentially to Mike Conley being hot from 3. These aren’t 23-footers, he’s shooting from a few feet beyond the line, too. – 9:16 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Celtics best 3-point shooting in this starting five is Dennis Schroder (33 percent). – 9:16 PM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
A 3-pointer from far, far away ✴

Brad Townsend @townbrad
19-14 Mavs after one quarter. Previous first-quarter low for a Mavs opponent this season was 15 by Boston. – 9:12 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah is 2-for-2 on third down on this drive. Picked up third-and-4 earlier, just picked up third-and-3.
Utes are in plus territory. – 9:12 PM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
May the force be strong tonight 💫

End of one at Rice-Eccles South: Utah 14, Oregon 0.
Utes have third-and-8 when we come back after Tavion Thomas got stuffed. – 8:55 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
It’s very, VERY early here, but it feels a little like Utah is going for the KO, up 14, starting this drive at the Oregon 45. – 8:52 PM

Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah came with the rush, nice job by Anthony Brown to step up and get rid of it, but Utah is getting off the field on third down to open the game.
Nicely done. – 8:30 PM

Oregon wins the toss and will defer.
Utah will open with the rock for the seventh game in a row.
Ute fans are out in force tonight, it’s going to get loud in here. – 8:13 PM

A ‘Let’s Go Utah’ chant ringing out as the band performs.
Very rough estimate: There are 35,000 people here. Of the 35K, has to be 20-25,000 Utah fans. – 7:58 PM

Only semi-question in there was Bills after he got rolled up on vs. Colorado. – 7:45 PM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Love the feeling of anticipation before a big game. How about the emotional turmoil our guys have faced in the last 2 yrs? Who could forget the history of critical transfers between the squads? Can the local boys beat the vaunted team in green?
