Why the Jazz Rock

Anyone who can beat the Miami Heat, and their new 'Big 3', especially when King James has his 29th triple-double, is a friend of mine. I'm officially a Jazz fan, and here's why you should be, too:

-Utah trailed Miami by 19 points at halftime, then unleashed an impressive 84 points in the second half and overtime to beat the Heat. The Jazz also rallied from 18 points down to beat the Clippers on Saturday night. In other words, they can make a COMEBACK. They can FINISH a game. As much as I love my Celtics, there have been plenty of occasions they couldn't finish the game and come out with a win. 
"It is speechless to be down like that to a team like this in a hostile environment and come out with a win," Millsap said. "We clawed our way out of there. But that says a lot about our team."
-Millsap. He's going places. LeBron couldn't bring him down. In eight previous games against Miami, Millsap had averaged 6.9 points. He became the eighth player to score at least 46 points against the Heat, a list that also includes Michael Jordan, James, Willie Burton, Jamal Crawford, Vince Carter, Alex English and Gilbert Arenas.
"He shows you what he's about. That's one of the things, when it gets tough he doesn't quit working," Sloan said. "That's why he's gotten to be better and works at the game to make himself better."
-Jerry Sloan. I have a bobblehead of Jerry that I got for being one of the first thousand people to a Jazz game when I was younger. Sloan is a great coach- he's been coaching the Jazz since 1988, and the Chicago Bulls before that.
"Jerry Sloan is one of the best coaches we have in our league," James said. "He kind of figured out what we wanted to do."
So, watch out for the Jazz. Now we just need them to take out Kobe and the Lakers! Stay tuned.
