Jazz Undefeated , Beat Kings 82-71

 Jazz finish the pre-season 8-0, undefeated for the first time in team history. Although it counts for nothing, it still shows that this team can play. Beating the Lakers twice, once without Williams, was the highlight for me and probably the rest of you reading this.     

Friday night the Jazz played without Deron Williams because he was away due to personal reasons. But even without him, the Jazz played great except for a few minutes near the end of the 3rd quarter. Al Jefferson had some great moves down low and was one of three players with 12 points. Bell and Fesenko were the other two high scorers, and I have to admit Fesenko has really improved. But he still makes me cringe when he tries to take the ball to the hole by himself.  Bell made 3 out of 3 on three point shots and ran the break well. Evans gets better every game and his ally oops are enough to get even an old man to jump out of his seat. Watson ran the floor well and had some good drives to the basket, he was walking all over the Sacramento defense. Elson is looking to be a great back up center and has a rainbow of a jump shot. The Jazz played great and made team history. Lets hope that they make some more history this season. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Great: Undefeated in Preseason

Jefferson (Had some great plays down low)

Bell (I think he is a much better replacement for Korver)

Memo getting better from his injury (On FSN they showed a clip of him shooting some shots and jogging down the court, it‘s good to see him recovering)

The Good: Fesenko (I think losing some weight has really improved his game)

Evans (This guy just makes you like him)

Elson (His rainbow jumper is awesome)

The Bad: Miles is injured

15 turnovers


My Play of the Game: My play of the game is when Price threw the behind the back pass to Fesenko and two of the King’s players ended up kissing the court. It starts at 1:37 of this video: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Player of the Game: Raja Bell (12 points, 2 assist, 1 steal and 100% from 3 point land) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This team is tough with both Jefferson and Bell playing through injuries. It proves that Jazz want to win and they will sacrifice to do it. They have looked good this far, now we wait for Wednesday, when the Jazz play the Nuggets for the start of the regular season.
