Nothing unexpected last night. The Lakers got a last second three from Kobe to get the win over the Nets. The narrator on the nba.com highlights called it "a thing of beauty", but it was really a last second desperation heave that got a couple of lucky bounces.

Anyway, tonight features several games that Jazz fans will want to keep an eye on.

While you were sleeping:


The "I don't know if this is good or bad":

  • Suns 109 - Kings 100: Good that the Kings lost, to keep up with the Warriors. Bad that the Suns won, as they are now just a half game back of the Jazz


The Bad:

  • Warriors 94 - Grizzlies 98: This is double jeopardy. The W's are stacking up the losses and the Grizzlies are getting further out of reach.

Tonight's Important Games:

  • Suns @ Jazz: I would say the Jazz need this win, but the Jazz need ALL THE WINS.
  • Nuggets @ Hornets: Eric Gordon is supposed to be back for this game; it likely won't matter
  • Warriors @ Timberwolves: Another loss for Golden State.
  • Grizzlies @ Mavericks: A loss would drop the Mavs into a statistical tie with the Nuggs, but they own the tie-breaker

*See what I mean? Alec Burks is always fouled.
