The Triple Team! 3 thoughts on
1. Yo, did you know the Jazz have the best 2-point % in the league?
2. Defensive communication has been awesome (with actual audio example!)
3. Star guards around the league — Beal, Lillard, even Steph — are scoring less.

Jordan Clarkson, who entered his postgame session wearing sunglasses and swigging a beer, said when he threw the alley-oop to Don, he had visions of going off the backboard and having a D-Wade/LeBron moment, but figured they couldn’t afford to blow a potential transition bucket. – 10:31 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
The @Utah Jazz are the first Western Conference team to win 10 games away from home this season.
They join the Brooklyn Nets as only the second team in the league with 10 wins so far this year. – 10:22 PM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
Shout out to @Hassan Whiteside: He had a season high in points (18), rebounds (14) and blocked shots (4) in under 20 minutes off the bench tonight.

Donovan, on his windmill: “That was ugly. That was nasty. It definitely didn’t look like Gafford’s.” He said when he was in the air, he didn’t know where Bradley Beal was, and he got cautious about where he was going to land, and potential hurting his ankle, so he drifted a bit. – 10:02 PM

Hassan Whiteside set season highs in points (18), rebounds (14), and blocks (4) in just 19 minutes.
Since 1983, only one player has had 19, 14, and 4 in less than 20 minutes, and that’s Whiteside who has now done it twice.
He also did it in 2019 against Charlotte. – 9:53 PM

Jazz now scoring with impunity, as the Wiz’s defense has collapsed. Mike gets right to the rim for a layup, the Jazz lead 91-76, and Wes Unseld Jr. calls timeout. 9:31 left. – 8:55 PM

The Wizards try and hide Harrell on Ingles to take him out of the pick and roll action with Gobert on the floor, but Harrell is such an inattentive defender he forgets to close on Ingles and he gets an easy catch and shoot 3 – 8:54 PM

Jazz up 81-69. I did not anticipate Neto would lead the Wizards in shots tonight… but he is. 6-16 FG, 0 assists. Meanwhile, Jazz held Wizards to just 18 points in the 3rd. – 8:50 PM

The Jazz outsored the Wizards 31-18 in the third quarter, leaving the Wiz down 81-69 going into the fourth. Wiz went 0-for-6 from 3PT in the third and were outrebounded 16-7. – 8:49 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Man, the Jazz spent the first 30 minutes of this one trying to find some legs….washington blew a gift. They shoulda been up double digits by the middle of the third. The Jazz realized that, found some energy and played a great six minutes to end the third quarter – 8:49 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
End of the 3rd Quarter: Jazz 81, Wizards 69
Beal: 14 pts., 4 rebs., 4 assts.
Neto: 13 pts., 3 rebs.
Mitchell: 26 pts., 3 assts.
Points scored off turnovers: Jazz 17, Wizards 10 – 8:49 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 3Q: Jazz 81, Wizards 69. Utah had as many assists in 3Q as they did in 1H. Conley had 5 of them himself. Not coincidentally, Jazz rack up 31 points in the period. Meanwhile, Washington’s Neto-centric scheme comes apart, as the Wiz shoot just 8-22, score 18p. – 8:48 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
End of three: the Jazz lead the Wizards 81-69…….Mitchell with 26…Gobert with 16 and 9 rebounds – 8:48 PM

NBCSW showing a replay of a vanilla center alley-oop instead of Donovan Mitchell’s windmill alley-oop is something – 8:46 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
NEW: Utah hit its first real roadblock at TCU, and Craig Smith was not pleased.
There was some soul-searching the last couple of days, some brutal honesty, and a “humbling film session.”
The net result of all that was a blowout of Manhattan: sltrib.com/sports/utah-ut…8:44 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Now THAT’s the best dunk of Donovan Mitchell’s season: a windmill alley-oop in transition – 8:44 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Well that has to be the first alley-oop windmill in Utah Jazz history.
Wow Donovan Mitchell. – 8:44 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
That windmill oop by Don makes it an 18-6 Jazz run and a 77-67 Jazz lead – 8:44 PM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
DONOVAN!!!!!!!!!!! – 8:44 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Saw that offensive foul coming a mile away. You’re not gonna back Neto from the three point line into the paint without Neto falling down…the Jazz shoulda went elsewhere with that – 8:42 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Ugly stretch for the Wizards
– Neto freezes Gobert, but cannot finish
– Gafford dunk nullified because ref called foul on the floor
– KCP misses a dunk and Trezz takes a take foul with Jazz in bonus
– Trezz does not get a foul call and then cleans out Neto who had a steal – 8:40 PM
Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
The Utah Jazz have some of the best shot blockers in the NBA.

Jazz are still not terribly crisp, but they’ve at least been a little more energetic these past few minutes, generating some easier buckets by running. The Wiz, meanwhile, are stuffing themselves on the backboard on dunk attempts. 71-65 Jazz, 4:06 left 3Q. – 8:38 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
This has been some pretty sloppy stuff, but it’s ended up favoring the Jazz recently. – 8:38 PM

Quin Snyder’s challenging this one. I think I agree with him: Beal jumps into Gobert to get the contact, so an offensive foul. – 8:26 PM

I’m about 50 percent sure Beal jumped forward to initiate the contact… – 8:25 PM

HALFTIME: Wizards 51, Jazz 50. Utah’s shooting only 40.4% from the field and 6-21 from 3 (28.6%). Only 9 assists on 19 buckets. Defensively, they’ve seen the Wiz have a lot of success in the paint as expected (17-26), but Washington has also been good on 3s (5-11). – 8:06 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
This was been an energetic, generally strong first half by the Wizards. True, they’ve had some troubles defending the Jazz’s pick-and-rolls, but almost every team struggles with that. It’s an achievement to hold the Jazz to 40 percent shooting from the field. Wizards lead 51-50. – 8:05 PM

C) Appreciate that AT&T SportsNet has decided to put the ’90s filter on this broadcast – 7:31 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Rough stretch for the Jazz, as the offense has cooled down a bit, and the defensive intensity has let up a bit. Wizards — who are excellent scoring inside — already have 16 PITP. Utah leads 21-19, w/3:10 left 1Q. – 7:30 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Raul Neto has always been really good off the bounce. He’s developed into the perfect backup point guard in this league. The Jazz lead the Wizards 21-19 with 3:10 remaining in the first quarter. They haven’t been good defensively in the last 10 possessions – 7:29 PM

During the Wizards’ recent slide, they’ve had a trend of falling behind early by double-digits and never catching up. At the first timeout, Jazz lead 14-8 with 6:48 left 1Q. Don’s been on a roll early — 10p on 3-4 shooting. – 7:20 PM
Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Spence has to make someone pay on the defensive switch by Utah.
Gaff sets the screen, Gobert picks up Spence 1v1, Spence backs it out, Gaff posts up on Conley, the ball is swung to KCP.
Turnover. – 7:19 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Mitchell’s straight up been on a roll these last two weeks. He has 10 in the first five minutes of this one. Has crossed KCP twice. Jazz lead Washington 14-8 – 7:19 PM

Something funky with Donovan Mitchell’s right ankle/foot area after shooting a 3. Flexing it multiple times kinda shaking it out – 7:13 PM

Don put KCP on skates and drained a shot, but came down a little awkwardly and is flexing his foot a bit. – 7:13 PM

It’s Wizards-Jazz at 7 pm on @NBCSWashington. Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell are in town. Kyle Kuzma is out due to Covid protocols, so Deni Avdija is starting.
Here are my 3 keys to the game: pic.twitter.com/rxIKEl2JUB5:57 PM

Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Halftime: Utah 47, Manhattan 30.
The last 7+ of the first half was all Utes.
Branden Carlson has 11, Both Gach had all of his 10 in the first 3:30. – 5:54 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Impressive defensive first half for Utah, which has held Manhattan’s leading scorer, Jose Perez, to four points and 0-for-6 shooting.
Jaspers 32% from the floor late in the first half. – 5:52 PM
Washington Wizards @WashWizards
Working on the weekend.

When asked how Kyle Kuzma is feeling, Wes Unseld Jr. said Kuzma is “feeling fine.” “So that’s a good sign,” Unseld added. “Our biggest concern is his health — obviously, the health of our staff, players.” – 5:47 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah has asserted some control over the last 2-3 minutes. Making more of an effort to run, showing more patience. The lead is 10. – 5:40 PM
Washington Wizards @WashWizards
Deni Avdija will start in place of Kyle Kuzma (health and safety protocols) tonight vs. Utah, per Coach Unseld. #DCAboveAll pic.twitter.com/CAehDfmKXy5:28 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wes Unseld Jr. says Kyle Kuzma is “feeling fine.” So, sounds like no symptoms. Unseld Jr. is not sure if he will travel with the team tomorrow. – 5:26 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
With Kyle Kuzma (health and safety protocols) out tonight, the Wizards will start Spencer Dinwiddie, Bradley Beal, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Deni Avdija and Daniel Gafford against the Jazz, Wes Unseld Jr. said. – 5:26 PM

Manhattan will press, trap and generally make life uncomfortable, Utah has done an acceptable job of dealing with it thus far.
Utes up, 18-12, at the under-12. – 5:21 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah has gone 8-deep, and David Jenkins is not one of them. – 5:17 PM

Lahat Thioune and Lazar Stefanovic are coming out of the under-16 as Utah leads Manhattan, 12-6.
Both Gach with triples on consecutive trips up the floor, he has a quick 10 on 4-for-4 shooting. – 5:12 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
For Utah this afternoon: Rollie Worster, Both Gach, Marco Anthony, Riley Battin, Branden Carlson.
David Jenkins Jr. will come off the bench for the first time. Can’t hurt, Jenkins has been struggling last couple of outings. – 4:48 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Montrezl Harrell’s scoring has dropped off lately after he began the season with 20 straight double-figure games. Wes Unseld Jr. explained how teams are guarding him differently. nbcsports.com/washington/wiz…4:35 PM
