The Utah Jazz will play their 3rd preseason game tonight as they welcome in the Los Angeles Clippers to EnergySolutions Arena at 7:00 PM.
Today at shootaround Head Coach Quin Snyder said he is pleased with the effort his team has shown so far throughout preseason. He says they still looked confused at times on the floor, but that can be corrected with time. This young team has a lot to learn and have looked okay so far through 2 preseason games. Snyder also says that game planning will start to be more complicated but they have to be careful with setting that up. He wants his team to understand what he is trying to teach and perform it well.
The Los Angeles Clippers will be a good test for the Jazz defensively tonight as they are an up-tempo team. It will be interesting to see how the Jazz do in their defensive efforts tonight.
Rodney Hood is expected to see action tonight for the first time this preseason as he missed the first two games with a hip injury. He is excited to get out on the floor and see some real game action.
Derrick Favors is happy with how the offense is performing and knows as the bigs continue to develop their outside game that will only help with the flow of this offense.
