The Basics:

Moonlighting, work computers, busy. Mailing it in? Yes I am. Kinda drained on the Jazz last few days. So . . . I need this all-star break too. OKC is a really solid team, and the best offense around in PPG and RTG. They have the 8th fasted pace and also boast a Top 10 defense. Jeremy Lamb is doubtful with a strained back. Kevin Martin has flu-like symptoms and will play tonight. Mo Williams is in New York right now getting pins removed from his hand, the healing process is steady but slow there. Gordon Hayward will miss yet another game tonight. Raja Bell just discovered Azeroth, so he's going to be busy.

OKC is 1 game off of 1st in the West and are 7-3 in their last 10. We're 2.5 games off of 6th, and only .5 games ahead of 8th. The Jazz have lost 2 in a row and are 5-5 in their last 10. It's going to be a fun game. I never count the Jazz out at home. When we're motivated and the wagons are circled we can do great things on the court.

Tonight could have a surprise ending.
