Going forward, that question is one of the most important Utah management must answer in their quest to move beyond this season’s 25-57 record. One word of caution: Don’t count Kanter as one of the doubters. “I think it’s crazy that people think we cannot play together,” he said Thursday afternoon at EnergySolutions Arena. “I read all these articles and it’s crazy some people think we can’t play together. … ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

He’d twice made a run to the NBA Finals with the New Jersey Nets, so with one of his former teams battling for the title that has eluded him, Jefferson stayed away from the television set. It had been a difficult season for the forward, perhaps the most difficult of his career. He’d ripped his calf in the preseason and the injury was nagging. On top of that, his back had started to seize up badly. And the veteran found himself at the end of the Golden State benc...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

And the veteran center doesn’t think this Charlotte team is a one-year wonder. “We’ve got a long way to go, but we can be one of the elite teams in the East,” Jefferson said. When Jefferson signed a three-year, $40.5 million free agent contract last July he insisted he wasn’t coming to Charlotte just to collect a paycheck. He wanted to help change what’d become a losing culture.

Twelve to go. Heading into Monday night’s game against Detroit at EnergySolutions Arena, Jefferson is the only player on the roster with perfect attendance. Nobody else has played 70 games like the 33-year-old small forward. “I’ve always been a guy who never really liked to miss games, even when I was younger and had some injuries,” Jefferson said. “They had to force me to si...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

More accurately, the Jazz may not run ANY plays for Richard Jefferson. But Utah made the most of the forward’s hot hand in the first quarter Saturday night at EnergySolutions Arena, seeking him out early and often to jump-start the Utah offense in an 89-88 victory over Orlando. Jefferson scored 17 in that first period, playing every minute and hitting each of his four 3-point attempts to give the Jazz an 11-point lead.

It was a strange sight, given the circumstances.From the outset of the season, Ty Corbin has closed games with Hayward (and the fourth-year wing has often been the one with the ball in his hands, taking key shots, however few of them there have been this season, late in games). Recently, Corbin has brought the rest of the guys with their pictures outside the arena along.
