Utah Jazz

Sports Commentator Patrick Blake is host of the Blake’s Take show, airing weekdays from 5-6 p.m. on KZNU Sports Radio Southern Utah Sports Network – 96.7 FM 1450 AM – with live stream online at http://www.KZNUsports.com. Reporting from live TV broadcast.

ST. GEORGE – The Utah Jazz are just hours from game time and have listed star forward Paul Millsap and backup forward Jeremy Evans doubtful for tonight’s game. The Jazz are right in the thick of the playoff race with just two weeks remaining in the regular season. The Jazz are in New Orleans tonight to take on the Hornets.

The Hornets have no chance to make the playoffs but would love to play spoiler to the Jazz, just like the last time these two teams met. On Feb. 13, the Hornets beat the Jazz 86-80. The Hornets were missing four starters in the game.

The Jazz can not afford a loss tonight and without Millsap the team will have their work cut out for them. Millsap said he was going to try and rest with the hopes that the pain goes away so he can play tonight.

Millsap also said if it was his non-shooting hand he would play.

The Jazz are also missing Cj Miles, Raja Bell, and Josh Howard.

The game starts at 6 p.m., Friday.
