Readers who follow the NBA will notice a change to the NBA page in the print edition's Sports section Wednesday following Tuesday night's start of regular season games.

In order to conserve print space, we're opting to switch to shorter box scores for each game played in the NBA. The boxes will resemble those we run in print for college basketball games. Print readers still will see game summaries, stats for field goals and field-goal attempts, free throws and free-throw attempts, points and game leaders. Longer box scores for each game will be available, as always, at http://sltrib.sportsdirectinc.com/.

The NBA page in Sports will continue to offer expanded standings.

We know some readers enjoy the longer box scores in print and we wish we could continue to offer them.

But we hope you'll understand the change will enable us to continue to devote ample print space to comprehensive coverage of each Jazz game, as well as news, feature and enterprise stories on days when games aren't being played. Today's story about whether the Jazz will extend Gordon Hayward's contract is an example.

When the team is at home, that coverage will include multiple stories with photos and a notebook, plus a column by either Kurt Kragthorpe or Gordon Monson most days. And Jazz beat writer Aaron Falk or NBA beat writer Steve Luhm will continue to travel with the team for every road game.

Coverage available at sltrib.com includes a special comprehensive section previewing the season.

Online, you also can follow the "Utah Jazz Notes" blog.

Falk and Luhm frequently update the news and engage with readers and Jazz fans on Twitter. Follow Falk @tribjazz and Luhm @sluhm.

The Jazz and the NBA also will be featured in weekly live Trib Talk video chats featuring columnists Kragthorpe and Monson along with Falk and Luhm.

In addition, watch for expanded video coverage of the Jazz at sltrib.com this season.
