Jazz looking for consistency in scrimmage

The Jazz host their annual preseason scrimmage Saturday at 4 p.m. at EnergySolutions Arena.

The event serves as a good first-look for fans at their revamped team. Coach Tyrone Corbin laid out a list of things he hopes to see at the event, but, of course, there will be "relaxed atmosphere because it's for the fans. But we're still continuing to grow and learn each other."

The Jazz have three new players expecting major minutes: Mo Williams, Marvin Williams and Randy Foye. The fun part, though, is the chance to, perhaps, see Derrick Favors play against Paul Millsap, with whom he is competing for minutes at power forward. And Enes Kanter versus Al Jefferson, Alec Burks guarding Gordon Hayward. A team spokesman said he did not know how the teams would be divided, although the teams may be a bit interchangeable.

Corbin said the scrimmage will be used for "getting comfortable with the plays, we've got to make sure that we continue to get the thinking out of your play."

Through five days of fall camp, Corbin will finally get to see how much has stuck, including offensive structure and defensive communication.

"Tomorrow once we get into playing," Corbin said, "it's just to make sure that when we play the game we do the things we talk about doing in practice and not getting away from it."

Doors open at 3:15 p.m. and entrance is free.
