In a scandal that could one day rival Deflate-gate, Milwaukee Bucks mascot Bango was caught red-handed deflating basketballs before the team’s game against the Utah Jazz on Thursday.
It remains to be seen just how much of an impact this had on Milwaukee’s two-point loss, but it’s not a good look for the NBA.

Giannis Antetokounmpo gave us another highlight against the Utah Jazz late in the fourth quarter that only a handful of players in the NBA could do.
The Greek Freak grabbed a rebound and went full court in four dribbles before shrugging off an opponent and throwing it down with center Enes Kanter contesting the dunk. WOW!

It’s not fun to think back to November 5, 2014. It was the fourth game of the season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and they were in Utah to play the Jazz. The Cavaliers lost that game 102-100, but the score doesn’t tell the story. That was the...
Just as we thought going into the season, the Utah Jazz (14-27) are far outside the playoff picture. On Sunday, they finished the first half of the season with a 69-89 loss in San Antonio. There is obvious room for improvement on both ends of the court. One area of improvement is in the win/loss column. The jazz clearly need to win more…or do they?
What brings more value to a...

Rudy Gobert, acquired on draft night in 2013 from the Denver Nuggets, had a slow start to his NBA career in his first season. Under first year head coach Quin Snyder, Gobert has seen his skills and playing time grow. The improvement from his rookie season to year two is remarkable. Gobert has...

Getting blocked might rank high on an NBA player’s list of humiliating things to happen to them on the court.
It’s demoralizing and gets into your head if you are trying to get back to the rim knowing the big man is ready to pack the shot.
But if your Houston’s Josh Smith, you just get the ball and cram it down Utah’s Rudy Gobert’s throat.

The NBA rulebook states that in order to catch and shoot a basketball, 0.3 seconds must be on the shot clock or game clock. Well, Friday night in Oklahoma City, the Utah Jazz only had 0.2 seconds left on a 24-second count — a fact Trevor Booker was acutely aware of. As such, Booker’s only

Well--Friday night Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booker certainly got to experience the lucky side of the equation when he made this shot. I'm not sure if it is by accident or if he really just flipped it up there like he was trying to get rid of a hot potato.Either way--it counts. Read more »
Utah Jazz reserve forward Trevor Booker only had 0.2 seconds on the shot clock, but that's all he needed to score this amazing backwards volleyball-style shot over his head on an inbounds play during the second quarter of Friday night's game against Oklahoma City. It's a creative way to get a quick shot off, but does Booker practice that play? He made it look easy.H/T TNLP.
Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booker tried something a bit different in Friday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Jazz were faced with a tough situation at the time—having to inbound the ball with just 0.2 seconds remaining on the shot clock.
Gordon Hayward then threw a bounce pass to Booker. But instead of catching the ball, he did a two-handed volleyball set shot...

Burks had missed the previous two games with a shoulder ailment and after getting it checked out by the medical staff, they decided to shut him down for the season and opt for surgery. The possibility of injuring it again was too high and not worth the risk...
The Utah Jazz, like most if not all NBA teams, will have dancers come out on to the court during intermissions to entertain the crowd. These dancers are just what you would expect--hot, gorgeous athletes--and they do what you would expect--dance. During Tuesday night's game the Jazz had some dancers out there were truly athletic (and gorgeous), but they did more than just dance.They...
