  • Less than 48 hours to go: Five players, teams to watch heading into trade deadline

    However, there is another NBA universe moving toward a trade deadline, one that has most teams looking for smaller deals to give them a boost on the court at some point (the Dallas Mavericks landing Kristaps Porzingis) or freeing up cap space for future moves (the Knicks trading said Porzingis). What is left to happen at this deadline? It may be a little quiet, but there will be trades.

  • Frustrated Jazz ready for visit from listless Suns

    With two All-Star Game snubs and defeats in two of their last three games, expect the Utah Jazz to be in a foul mood when they get set to play host to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. That would be especially bad news for a Suns team that has dropped 11 consecutive games and just got the James Harden treatment, as the Houston Rockets' superstar torched them for 44 points Monday while shooting 15-of-26 from the field in a 118-110 decision. The Jazz also received the Harden treatment in their most recent defeat, a 125-98 loss on Saturday.

  • Tearful Gobert feels disrespect in NBA All-Star snub

    Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was in tears Friday after being snubbed for even a reserve spot in this year's NBA All-Star Game despite a standout campaign. The 26-year-old French 7-footer (2.16m) is this year's most accurate NBA shooter, connecting on 65% of shots from the floor, and has had a strong follow up to last season's Defensive Player of the Year honors. But he waited in vain Thursday night to hear his name when the list of reserve players for the February 17 NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte was announced.

  • Jazz president blasts All-Star selection process after Gobert snubbed

    Utah Jazz president Steve Starks was unhappy after the final NBA All-Star Game rosters were announced and said it was "nonsense" center Rudy Gobert was not selected. The Jazz entered play on Thursday with a 29-23 record and sat in seventh place of the Western Conference standings. But, they will not have a single player representing them at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game, much to the displeasure of Starks.

  • Reigning Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert's All-Star snub will cost him $1 million

  • Jazz rookie Grayson Allen learns he can't throw elbows in the NBA

    Utah Jazz guard Grayson Allen reminded the sports world he is indeed in the NBA with a very unfortunate moment late in the team's 132-105 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Blazers' forward Al-Farouq Aminu collected an air ball late in the third quarter and went baseline-to-baseline to pad an 18-point lead. Or at least he attempted to when Allen moved into the paint and did more than get in the way.

  • There's no question anymore: Meyers Leonard knows how to impact the game

    It wasn't that long ago when a few "boo birds" were heard throughout Moda Center when it came to Trail Blazers' backup center Meyers Leonard. In fact, it was December 1st of 2017, that those boos rang throughout, aimed at Leonard. On Wednesday night, Trail Blazers fans clapped, cheered and some even gave a standing ovation as Leonard checked out of the game in the final minute of the third quarter after an impressive night against the Utah Jazz.
