Are All Systems “Go” For Jazz Opener?

Posted by

Next Wednesday night is the kick off of the Utah Jazz regular season with a match against Denver Nuggets. Judging from their 7-7 preseason record, the fans are confident that their team will win. One more preseason game will be played on Friday night versus the Sacrament Kings and it is time to let the show start.

Though Jazz had a great preseason start, it is hard to tell if the team will win because it is still too early in the game. Coach Jerry Sloan wants to start the game with this line-up: Deron Williams, Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, Raja Bell and Andrei Kirilenko. All of them have not played together for some time. As a matter of fact, these players have only played twice to together so it could not be determined if they will get together as a starting line-up. Deron Williams, together with the fans and the whole team, are very hopeful that Al Jefferson will prove to be a reliable guy that the Jazz team needs in replacing Carlos Boozer.

Jefferson makes an average of 14.9 shots for every game during the preseason play. He cknowledges that he would need to continue working with Coach Sloan’s style of offense and is resolute in becoming successful in his new assignment.
