Thanks to @moni__ for the open. Although the Utah Jazz won, it felt like a loss on a few different levels.
IF you are looking for the Video Recap it is HERE
First, Deron Williams said after the game that, " Our bench has been a strong point for us all season. It’s contagious. I wish the first group could do that." Courtesy of the Trib. Deron essential is pulling or trying to get a lineup change for the starters, which has been a struggle all season. Second, there were 9 lead changes and 10 ties, although the Jazz had a 13 point lead they never really closed the door and were trailing as late as the six minute mark in the fourth.
Game Ball- Goes to Paul Millsap. Kalun came close to his box score. Millsap finished with 22 and 10 and added 3 assists,2 steals, 3 blocks shot 72% (8-11) from the field and 100% (6-6) from the line. He also had huge block and dunk sequence that you can see in the recap video here.
So, rumor was last night that Hayward had hickeys all over his neck from New Year's with his girlfriend. I will post pictures as soon as we can track them down. I am sure they will surface on Slcdunk sooner or later. Anyway since Gordon's girlfriend has been in Utah, he is playing very well and with confidence. It could be the Old Spice or it could be the um-mm relations. Either way let's hope she stays in town.
It's also interesting to see how different players handle different injuries or sicknesses in the NBA. Watson has said the is dealing with the same flu like symptoms as Miles and Price have been going through. Here is what he says about it.

Fez is learning...
Nothing spectacular, but this is good for Fez. He is learning how the offense runs and how to handle certain situations.
A win is a win. I agree with a lot of people, that the Jazz are not as good as their record would indicate. However, I think this team can be something special if we can figure out how to open games with more fire and intensity.
