The Utah Jazz shot 14-25 from three and were one three shy of the Utah Jazz record for threes in a game set against the Washington Wizards on March 31st 2008. I will have a video up shortly that will show all of them. They also had 52 points in the paint. It was an inside out night last night. Lucky me (thanks worm)  I had lower bowl seats to this game the first time this season. When you sit in the same seats all the time you get used to the angle and a certain way to watch the game because you can see different things. Moving closer and to the other side of the court it opened up a whole new view of the offense and defense for that matter. Anyway, if you regularly go to games you know what I am talking about. It's like going back to your hometown after you have left for a long time. New buildings and restaurants and whatever. Brendan took my tickets and" TGTSNBN" The Girl That Shall Not Be Named last night looked liked they had a good time. In their defense, Houston was missing Battier and Ariza, but I don't think it would have made a difference if they played or not. The Jazz shot 68% over all for the game. I can't for the life of me understand why Kevin Martin gets so many freaking free throws, he shot 12-13 last night. I realize that he is a two guard but I just didn't see him get fouled that much. Maybe, he is their version of AK the weird arm and legs movements psychologically cause the refs to call more fouls. Its the arms and legs flaying everywhere. Points of interest Jazz only had 5 offensive boards which is understandable considering they only missed 25 shots the entire game or 6 shots a quarter, which is just ridiculous. Carlos Boozer went about his business quietly last night going 8-9 with nine rebounds and two free throws and sat out the entire fourth quarter with the game in the bag. I really hope Carlos Boozer stays I don't see Millsap filling the  spot as well as Boozer is playing this year. I love Millsap,don't get me wrong, I just don't see us being near as good as we are now with out Boozer. Deron Williams- Creasy, Godfather, whatever you want to call it, he was a man possessed. One of the best games I have ever seen him play. Period. C.J Miles- put together a good back to back game in a long time. I realize there was the whole twitter war the other day but he needs to be better than he is. I'm not saying he has to play harder or practice more, he just needs to be ahead of where he is at for the time and money that have been invested in him. Second of all if you want to get on twitter which i think is freaking cool, you have to take the good with the bad.
Wesley Matthews, G 33 7-9 1-2 3-4 0 3 3 3 0 0 1 4 +30 18
Had a freaking plus minus of +30 which is ridiculous. He also played within in himself tonight not doing more than the Jazz need, ask or want him to do. Off the Bench Korver and Millsap put up 26, 8 and  11 combined. Korver had  3 steals and 6 assists by himself. Here is your Final boxscore.
