Monday game preview: Toronto Raptors at Utah Jazz

Shelvin Mack is the latest former Jazz player and point guard to light up Utah

The Jazz are a disappointing 4-5 and were beaten handily by Denver on Saturday night ... Was it the fourth quarter surge from the Nuggets? Both the Nuggets and Jazz refused to go away from their game plan and were successful in doing so.

Undrafted rookie guard Allonzo Trier scored 23 points as the New York Knicks earned their first road win of the season with a 118-106 victory over the struggling Dallas Mavericks.

Utah led by as many as 12 in the second quarter before Memphis regrouped on the back of a trio of Mack three-pointers.

From the 9:20 mark of the fourth quarter until the end of the game, the Nuggets took off and began destroying the Jazz thanks to a 24-11 run and eventually stomped out the Jazz.

Carmelo Anthony put the Rockets ahead for good with about seven minutes left in the third quarter by hitting consecutive three-pointers, a focal point of his season-best 28 point contribution.

Donovan Mitchell #45 of the Utah Jazz grabs a rebound during the game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on October 10, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. "But we played unselfish, exploiting that pick-and-roll and mixing rolls with pops", said Gasol, who added 10 rebounds and seven assists, often initiating from the high post.

Pres. Trump: Republican Party Will Do Well In Upcoming Elections
They can do whatever they want, and I can do whatever I want", Trump said as he deplaned in IN for his second rally of the day. He plans to spend Election Day conducting get-out-the-vote interviews with local media at the White House.

After watching Antonio Blakeney improbably rally the Bulls from a 105-101 deficit with a four-point play with 30.5 seconds to go on a foul by Collison, the Pacers called a time out and got the game-winning shot from Collison 12 seconds later. He is also shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 31.6 percent from three point range. Both Conley and Gasol have scored in double-digits in every game this season. Joe Ingles and Jae Crowder managed 19 and 18 points, respectively. The Jazz offense isn't bad, it's just not good enough to hang against good teams with the personnel and scheme to counter them. I don't think that defensively we set the tone in the first half, but for our guys to come back and respond the way they did in the second half, kudos to them. As My J-Notes colleague Ryan Aston wrote about on Thursday, Rose's game was one for the ages. It shows to us the things we talk about mean something to them. They're a very disciplined team.

"A lot of effort, man", Plumlee said of the defense.

"Once you make shots, everything gets easier". "Mike's able to drive and make plays for me".

"I remember getting booed off the court. We'll definitely try to learn from this and move forward". "We did a good job of taking advantage of their switches", Conley said.

In other words, with Mitchell out of action, the Jazz need Rubio, and the rest of the team of course, to step up in a big way if they are to have any chance of arising victorious and doling out some revenge on the Grizz.

The good news for Denver is the game was decided early in the fourth quarter so numerous regulars got to sit.
