Lot of love for Derrick Favors in Utah. PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Romeo Langford was all alone inside, got the pass, and Mitchell Robinson recovered to get in front of him. And I’m not sure I’ve ever seen panic set in that quickly. – 8:29 PM
Clay Bailey @claybailey9
And your officials for the season-opener: Kevin Scott, Michael Smith and John Conley. These officials are endorsed, approved and blessed b @badunclep who has not had enough of a season to curse any of them…..
YET – 7:57 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Mark Daigneault says theres no expectations on Josh Giddey tonight “we are in it for the long haul. We don’t get overly excited from one outcome, we just want to help him learn to be consistent.” Says Giddey has downhill speed that has more pop than Mark anticipated. – 7:49 PM

Daigneault said part of the reasoning for starting Favors is that he’s coming home. He’s meant a lot to the Jazz and their fans. – 7:46 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Thunder coach Mark Daigneault on ex-Jazz big man Derrick Favors: “He’s the man. He’s got a great temperament, he’s very steady. … The young guys really like him. He’s not giving any speeches, but he’s one of the guys our rookies look at.” – 7:44 PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Mark Daigneault on SGA: “He’s got unbelievable maturity level for his age. He’s lost in the competition. He’s also lost in his work. He’s an unbelievable worker. He comes better every time. He sees the big picture.” – 7:42 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Mark Daigneault says Utah “has a threat at every spot.” Mention’s Mitchell is “an elite guard”, Conley is crafty, and so on and so forth. – 7:41 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Mark Daigneault says you have to make the Jazz earn everything, “pursue the heck out of the ball.” Says the Jazz “are a low mistake team. They just don’t beat themselves.” – 7:41 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Snyder with plenty of kind words about Derrick Favors, who will face his former team tonight.
“My relationship with Fave, it’s a lifetime relationship … I don’t think there’s anything wrong with saying you miss him.” – 7:22 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Quin Snyder on Derrick Favors:
“You hope that you have the chance to get to know someone at a personal level like I’ve had the chance to know Fav.”

#takenote | @KSLSports – 7:21 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Quin Snyder was asked about Lu Dort having the most success of any player in the league when guarding Donovan Mitchell:
“My guess is you could say that about Lu Dort with a lot of guys.” – 7:19 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
With Eric Paschall cleared I’ll be curious how Quin Snyder handles the back up forward minutes.
He’s got the edge in experience over Elijah Hughes but Hughes defense and three-point shooting were obviously improved in the preseason.

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl ahead of his NBA debut PM

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl said veterans have told him it’s a really long season so you can’t dwell on one game. – 7:02 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl gives a lot of props to Villanova on preparing players for the NBA, specially on how to understand the scouting report and get it down prior to tip off so you don’t have to think, just know it and play. – 7:02 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl “We have our scouting report on what we need to focus on during the game. We are going out there to compete and do the best we can.” On the difference in if Utah goes big or small. – 7:01 PM

Jazz had the best record in the NBA last year.
Thunder are supposed to have the worst record in the NBA this year.
Couldn’t ask for a better litmus test for SGA, Dort, Giddey, Baze, Poku and this young squad than OKC’s season opener. – 6:51 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Super excited to be back on the road this season. Can’t wait to bring you stories from every stop.

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps

Great to have Hornets basketball again tonight, pre-season is fine but there’s nothing like the real thing.
Remember last season they lost their first two games against OKC & Cleveland and were fine. Expect a slow start with the limited time key players have had in pre-season – 3:45 PM
