    You can tell that Eddie is a fan of Jackson but he doesn't need to bring up his DNP every game. It seems like every time Jackson makes a good play he talks about when Triano sat him for the Hawks game in early January and how he's played much smarter since then. It's true, for the most part, but I don't need to be reminded of it multiple times a game.

    Warren only had 4 points. That's odd. Chriss was a non-factor also. He seems to have reverted back to the player he was in 2017. He was playing good until he got injured.

    Warren had the -48, Chriss had -20. Wasn't sure who you were talking about since I mentioned both of them. I didn't think Chriss played enough minutes to get a -48 though. Chriss only had 1 foul but played just 14 minutes. Warren played in 25 to get his -48, which is insane.

    I was talking about Warren. Lots of players with a minus.

    That was a great trade (#24 and Lyles for #13) for the Jazz and it gives hope that the Suns can pull-out something similar with the MIL/MIA pick and Chriss/Bender.

    BTW, at the same time Lyles shoots the lights out in Denver.

    I think it's quite likely.

    That was an ugly game, but I was very happy with Bender and Jackson. JJ is putting together a nice streak of good games. Bender looked very aggressive last night. I loved the play where he took Gobert off the dribble and scored on that drive. He did it again in the second half and he got fouled and went to the line. He was also a beast on the boards, and he had a few assists from the elbow and the three point line. Those two passes to Booker, one to Ulis, and one to JJ were amazing.

    This would be my hope as well but I think the Jazz have better scouting.

    Kinda glad I missed this game. Although it would have been good to see Bender playing some real ball. Booker needs to take a break, heal up and move back to SG. I would rather see Jackson be at the point and let Booker score.

    I was ecstatic when Bender took Gobert off the dribble. The play of Jackson and Bender made the game watchable.

    Indeed, it was an ugly game.

    Only 29 more games to go.

    Ouch... that's still a lot of games.
