The blues means that I love you, and that it hurts me to die… It’s a bit like the atmosphere in Utah at the moment. Bad week for the Mormons, who were murdered at the buzzer (or almost) three times, the kind of thing that can hurt a lot when you’re on the edge of play-in. It’s decided, Jazz will rename itself Utah blues.
Sacred blow for Will Hardy and his troupe. This night again, the Jazz bowed to the buzzer. The assassin of the day is called De’Aaron Fox, the fox having disguised himself as an air conditioning installer to calm the entire Vivint Arena. The fastest guy in the West was indeed out in the fourth quarter, planting 22 of his 37 points of the day including this final layup on a Lauri Markkanen too slow. And yet, the Flying Finn almost crucified Sacramento: 3 points one-leg tah Dirk Nowitzki, finally canceled because too late. Like what, definitely when you have bad luck…
22 IN THE 4TH QUARTER.

The Kings seem to enjoy putting out their Utah rivals in the final seconds. Appreciate how much? Ah, probably to the point of paying twice for this luxury in less than a week. Last Friday, it was Kevin Huerter who stuck to it. The redhead, a newcomer to California, had also planted 15 of his 30 pawns (career record) in the last period, and had also finished the Jazz with a big game-winner.
Kevin Huerter is a bad, bad man.
30 PTS (career-high)

We’re really starting to wonder who in the Roster Jazz went under a mirror, or broke a ladder, or the other way around… in short, who is the black cat? No number 13 in Salt Lake City, a track to be ruled out. On the other hand, there is a number 14 in Miami, and he too had something to say to Jazz fans. How is it capillotracted as a transition? But naaaan… Anyway, if you want to see a one-leg buzzer that matters, you have to go back three days and look at Tyler. We send the hot potato running in the middle of three pelos, we pray a little and BANG! It’s still for the mouth of the Mormons.

First week of January, never easy no matter what. First week of January with three losses in the last seconds, yeah no it’s a blow to stay in bed there. The Jazz must recover very quickly, it shouldn’t spoil the taste of the galettes des rois…
