After a loooo-oooong wait (where Amar went crazy on twitter during the off-days) the Utah Jazz (1-1) are back in action; tipping off against the Los Angeles Clippers (1-1) very shortly. The Clippers want to somehow get out of the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs this season, while the Jazz want to return to the Playoffs, period. Both are angling for a Top 5 Finish in the conference, though Utah will be disadvantaged by losing Gordon Hayward for about 6 weeks of action. The Clippers? Their disadvantage is inherent, they are the Clippers. Anyway, some guys are sitting this one out, and hope no one else gets hurt.
