NBA History: Jazz rosters' best NBA Game ever

New, comments
Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

I'm impressed with that Utah Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey has done this off-season. It all really started on draft night when we were all stunned when we picked up the top PG of this draft class. The moves we've made since then have put an emphasis upon the youth and potential of Kevin O'Connor's draft picks and trade pieces. This roster is going to be exciting to watch and crazy to follow.

Why?

Well, here are their best ever NBA games . . .tell me what you see.

Yeah, it seems like getting to the FT line is important. Also, yeah, John played 46 mins, took 28 shots, and went 1/7 from downtown -- and that's his BEST game of his career.

I could look up the best games for Trey, Rudy, and Ian -- but it's the off-season. We have plenty of time left to investigate them.
