The local media have been giving props to Utah Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan for his ability to change on the fly. On Monday, the head ball coach made a couple of changes in his normal roster and substitutions due to injuries to Williams, Harping, and Okur. This allowed his players to adapt to their opponent and it obviously a wise move, considering the Jazz had one of their most energetic and dominate performances of the 2008-2009 season.

Tonight, the Jazz will face the bottom feeder of the Central division of the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks. They are coming off a tough loss to Denver last night and we will expect an even tougher loss against the Jazz tonight considering they are without guard Michael Redd and forward Charlie Villanueva. Redd missed his eighth straight game due to a right ankle sprain, while Villanueva sat out his third consecutive game with a left hamstring strain.

The Jazz will also be shorthanded tonight. D-Will is still out with an ankle injury, but good news Jazz fans, we think he might be ready for San Antonio on Friday. He is encouraged by it getting stronger each day and he was at shoot around on Tuesday. Also out tonight will be Matt Harpring and Jarron Collins with other nagging injuries. Brevin Knight will be questionable tonight due to a groining strain that happened during the game against Phoenix, leaving us quite shorthanded at the point guard position.

All in all, we should be just fine. We will get Memo back in the line up tonight and the players should still be running on the adrenaline high of spanking the Suns on Monday. Their is no official line, but I say Jazz by 14…Life off, Game on…Go Jazz!
