Finally, the highly anticipated new-look Utah Jazz will make their season debut against the Los Angeles Clippers.
After a disappointing lottery finish last season, the Jazz are eager to hit the court with their new rookies and veterans. It’ll be interesting to see how Will Hardy blends them together.
The biggest question mark heading into this game is the lineup. Keyonte George has impressed during training camp and turned heads with his skills. Will he earn a starting spot? The rotation of guards will be intriguing to witness, as we observe how everything unfolds.
When: 7:00 PM MT – 10/08/23
Where: Stan Sheriff Center, Honolulu, HI
TV: KJZZ, Jazz+ (how cool is this!)
What to Watch For
As mentioned earlier, the starting lineup is worth paying attention to. Will Hardy and the coaching staff have mentioned that positions are up for grabs, and the season will reveal who plays where. If Keyonte George gets the nod to start, it could indicate his exceptional talent, considering the players ahead of him had a full season to prepare.
There will likely be a lot of lineup experimentation to determine the most effective combinations. While the Jazz may have tried different approaches during camp, the real game action provides valuable insight. If the starting unit performs well, they are likely to receive significant playing time.
Regardless of the outcome, it’s exciting to have Jazz basketball back. It has been a long wait, and the anticipation for the upcoming season is high.
One final note: let’s all have an enjoyable season and treat each other with respect in the SLC Dunk community. There’s no need for personal attacks or saying something online that you wouldn’t say in person. Let’s show sportsmanship and enjoy the games!
