Countdown Is On For Jazz Season Opener

Posted by

The date for the season opener for the Utah Jazz has been announced. Utah will be meeting the Phoenix Suns at Energy Solutions Arena on October 28 to get the season underway. Jazz fans will be hoping for a great effort by the home team against the Suns team that beat Utah in the final game of the regular season. Most of us recall the dire effect that loss had on our placement for post-season play and although a win on opening night can’t change a thing about our last season finish, it would be a great way to get the new season started off. October 28 will also mark the debut for new Jazzman, Al Jefferson and will give fans a chance to see him perform in a Jazz uniform for the first time. This game will be televised on TNT as will the NBA season kick-off game on October 26 between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat. The country has seen a definite increase in “Heat haters” since LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined pal, Dwyane Wade on the Miami team so the interest in this game should be very strong.
