Ben Anderson @BensHoops
I think I’ve figured out why the Hornets are the worst defensive team in the NBA… – 9:21 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz get off to one of their best starts of the season….they lead the Hornets 15-2 with 7:37 remaining in the first quarter…..pretty much everything is going right in the first five min – 9:18 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Rudy’s feeling himself after that no-look to Bojan. Meanwhile, Charlotte’s shooting 0-for-8, and Utah’s reeled off 15 straight points. 15-2 with 7:37 left 1Q. – 9:18 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz up 15-2 on Charlotte to start, Borrego calls timeout. Hornets have the 3rd ranked offense in the league, but Jazz have made their life real tough so far. – 9:18 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Really good minutes from Bojan. Did a good job when he was switched on LaMelo and is crashing the boards running, cutting – 9:17 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Rudy with the rim run and the Jazz passed him the ball – 9:13 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
How many minutes (seconds?) into the game before LaMelo throws a 50+ foot outlet pass for a layup?
What’s the over/under? – 9:09 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
James Borrego said Gordon Hayward tweaked his back a bit in Phoenix last night but he said it’s a “day-to-day thing. I don’t think this is anything long term.”
Kelly Oubre will start in Hayward’s place. – 7:47 PM

Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
On a Zoom call, Craig Smith points out his Utah State teams played Fresno State seven times in three seasons, so he’s comfortable that he knows what to expect.
Bulldogs are 9-2, but caliber of opponent has been lacking. – 7:22 PM

It’s a holiday edition of @BlazersBalcony with @brookeolzendam. Breaking the losing streak, wins versus Hornets and Grizzlies, the weird free throw debate, confidence in @Norman Powell and the NBA’s COVID issues rip.city/3J2ya0Z7:17 PM

NEW: If the Rose Bowl is Kyle Whittingham’s final game, he hasn’t told his boss yet.
Utah AD Mark Harlan spoke to ⁦@sltrib⁩ on the matter late last week: sltrib.com/sports/utah-ut…4:49 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Devin Booker and Chris Paul aren’t on #Suns injury report for Tuesday at #Lakers.
Booker played Sunday vs. #Hornets after missing 7 games with left hamstring strain.
Paul grabbed at left hand Sunday, but kept playing.
#Suns don’t have anyone under #NBA health/safety protocols. – 4:44 PM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Sacramento Kings center Richaun Holmes (eye) is questionable vs. the Golden State Warriors tonight. De’Aaron Fox, Davion Mitchell, Terence Davis, Louis King, Marvin Bagley III and Alex Len are still out due to NBA health and safety protocols. – 4:34 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
All Star voting opens up later this week. With that in mind, here’s what I think should be the West All-Star roster:
G: Steph
G: Mitchell
F: Jokić
F: Gobert
F: LeBron
G: CP3
G: Booker
F: Draymond
F: Ayton
WC: Ja
WC: Luka
No AD, Paul George, or Dame. – 4:01 PM

Per Craig Smith, Utah found out Branden Carlson was going into protocol on Wednesday. As reported, he’s out for tomorrow vs. Fresno State.
The hope/expectation remains a return Dec. 30 at Oregon State. – 3:06 PM
