And All That Jazz

Oklahoma City will know soon enough about the Utah Jazz. Oklahoma City plays at Utah Tuesday night in their final preseason game, but there's more.

OKC will face the Jazz in Salt Lake City on November 23, then again on December 11, then two days later OKC will host Utah at Chesapeake Energy Arena. So that's about four games with the Jazz in a span of two months.

Utah is thinking playoffs this season, who knows... maybe they'll see each other in the postseason.

Utah likes to light it up behind the arch, just ask Portland. Utah fired up 27 3-point attempts in the overtime loss at Portland Sunday night.

Mitch McGary (concussion) did not make the trip to Salt Lake City, meanwhile Steven Adams can play Tuesday night if needed after taking a poke in the eye in Sunday's home win over the Denver Nuggets.

The wait is almost over, Thunder fans. After the Jazz game OKC will have a week to prepare for the season and home opener against the ageless San Antonio Spurs. Do you have any good questions I can ask Coach Popovich? They have to be good or you get the stare down from Coach and I don't need to re-visit that again.
