Jazz notes » Williams takes wait-and-see approach to union woes.

"You can’t judge a team by their record," Jefferson said. "They are going to come in here ready to play. When I was on those type of teams, other teams used to think they’d get an easy win. That’s when we’d come in and sneak one.

"Maybe we’d lose 10 after that, but we’d get that one. So you have to be ready to play every game. We have to treat them just like we treated the defending champs. We have to go out with that type of mindset and confidence."
