Denver @ Utah Highlights


I’m a little over a day late on these highlights – in truth, I’ve watched them far too many times myself and forgot to share them on the site (although I’m sure you easily found them elsewhere).

A few notes: The Rockets loss against the Mavs tonight place the Jazz seventh in the western conference. They are likewise neck-in-neck with Memphis for sixth (although the Jazz carry both an additional win and loss in their column), and are only a game behind the Clippers and Mavs for fourth and fifth place, respectively. (I hope I read that right – it’s hard to get an accurate read with everyone so closely boxed in.)

Some good news: the Clippers are experiencing coaching woes with Vinny Del Negro, which is never a good sign, especially this late in the season. And Dallas continues to struggle to find an identity, and likewise have no idea what to do with Lamar Odom who had another disappointing outing against Houston tonight. As long as teams continue to implode around Utah, hanging onto the seventh seed (or moving up to the fourth) shouldn’t be a problem – so long as Utah continues to play with a chip on their shoulders.

Without further ado, here’s the promised highlights – and no, it’s not Chuck Norris this time. Sorry.
