The Utah Jazz finish off their three games in three nights stretch with a rematch against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder dispatched the Jazz last week, and will look to capitalize on a road weary Jazz team. The Jazz won the first of the set against the Memphis Grizzlies, and the Jazz lost the middle game last night to the injury depleted New Orleans Hornets. The Thunder are never, ever, injured though. and will be looking for their 22nd win of the season. Or in Hornets terms, April.
It is disingenuous to say the Thunder are never injured; they have been playing the vast majority of this season without former Utah Jazz draft pick Eric Maynor. They are probably going to be without Thabo Sefolosha tonight as well. The only shake ups for the Jazz are that Tyrone Corbin said (and I'm paraphrasing a bit here) "Maybe that Alec Burks kid can play more than zero minutes a game, or something . . . someone who handles figuring out minutes should get on that."
Of course, he didn't say that. He did say practically nothing though. The good news is that I can get my laptop to boot up again, after 3 days of trying. Now I have to spend the rest of the night restoring files to it, and re-loading programs / updates. Fun. I know. I also found my parents, somewhere in Thailand right now -- they haven't been kidnapped by South East Asian gangsters just yet. So things in *my* personal life are turning around. Maybe tonight things turn around for our Utah Jazz as well?
