Corbin feels for Kings fans in Sacramento by Steve Luhm The Salt Lake Tribune Published Jan 22, 2013 04:12PM MDT
During his NBA career, Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin played 103 games in parts of two seasons with the Sacramento Kings. With the franchise apparently moving to Seattle — pending developments — Corbin’s heart is with the fans who embraced him as a Kings player and cheered against him when he was a member of other organizations. “Sacramento is a great city,” Corbin said. “They did a great job supporting the team. I really enjoyed my time there and I’ve always enjoyed going there. ... “The people are t...Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved. This material

The Wizards prevailed last week in Denver, where the Jazz have been demolished twice this season by a total of 39 points.

Jazz: Utah continues college-like schedule stretch steve Luhm the Salt Lake Tribune Published Jan 22, 2013 11:17AM MDT
Tyrone Corbin has felt like a college coach lately. When the Jazz play Washington on Wednesday night at EnergySolutions Arena, it will be only their third game since Jan. 12. “You have a couple of days to prepare for the next game,” Corbin said, smiling. “It’s been like college.” The break in the schedule has given the Jazz a chance to recover from a hectic pace in November and December, but it has also challenged Corbin to keep his team playing well.

NBA Rumors: Nets Don't Have Necessary Pieces to Sway Paul Millsap from Utah
It's time for the Derrick Favors era to begin in Utah.That idea might not be met with open arms by all Jazz fans simply because it means Paul Millsap, who is arguably one of the most underrated players in the NBA, would have to be traded. As we stand this season, Millsap is a better offensive player than Favors. Although, when you compare their numbers on a per-minute basis, the gap isn't as large as you might think.Millsap averages 17.5 points and 3.2 assists per 36 minutes while Favors' numbers stand at 15.0 and 1.4, respectively. Moreover, Millsap's offensive rating is a healthy 114 while Favors' sits at 104, according to Basketball Reference.But the former Georgia Tech star is better on the glass

Tinsley, Watson continue making their point by Steve Luhm The Salt Lake Tribune Published Jan 20, 2013 04:49PM MDT
For one night, at least, two veteran point guards were better than one emerging star. Jamaal Tinsley and Earl Watson were outstanding during the Jazz’s 109-98 win over Kyrie Irving at the Cavaliers on Saturday at EnergySolutions Arena. Tinsley finished with 11 points and four assists. He did not commit a turnover in 22 minutes. Watson did not score, but he tied a season high with nine assists and committed only two turnovers in 25 minutes. Meanwhile, Irving finished with 18 points and nine assi...Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast,
