I'm not really sure how to sum up last night's action. "Eh" comes to mind, though. The Jazz did get some help from the Lakers and Thunder, to help close the gap to the 4th seed.

The Jazz did get some draft aid as the Hornets out-tanked the cantankerous Mark Jackson. (You're welcome) Here's the current standings:
