NEW YORK,. NY USA - (NBA)

Friday, February 12, 2021

ALL THAT JAZZ:

Utah has won 15 of its last 16 games to improve to an NBA-best 19-5, tied for the second-best start in franchise history. Threepoint shooting has fueled the Jazz’s rise. Utah leads the NBA with 17.0 three-pointers made per game, which would be a league record over a full season. The Jazz plays its next four games at home, beginning with matchups against Boston on Tuesday (TNT) and Milwaukee on Friday (NBA LP).

PRIMETIME SHOWDOWN:

Brooklyn visits Golden State on Saturday in NBA Saturday Primetime on ABC. In last week’s edition, the Warriors’ Stephen Curry scored 57 points against Dallas for his eighth career 50-point game. The Nets’ James Harden leads active players with 23 games of 50 or more points. Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant (six) and Kyrie Irving (four) join Harden and Curry among the 10 active players to have at least four 50-point games.

GOOD TO BE KINGS:

Sacramento has rebounded from a 5-10 start to win seven of its last eight games, including four in a row. Led by reigning NBA Western Conference Player of the Week De’Aaron Fox and reigning NBA Western Conference Rookie of the Month Tyrese Haliburton, the Kings earned back-to-back victories against Denver and the LA Clippers over the weekend. Sacramento begins a five-game homestand Tuesday against Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia (NBA LP).

ELITE COMPANY:

Last week, New Orleans’ Zion Williamson scored his 1,000th career point in his 44th game, matching Blake Griffin as the fastest to that total among active players. Williamson, who ranks 19th in the NBA in scoring (23.7 ppg) and seventh in field goal percentage (59.6%), has helped the Pelicans win three straight games. Their Week 8 schedule includes games against Houston on Tuesday (TNT) and Dallas on Friday (ESPN).

NBA G LEAGUE RETURNS:

The NBA G League begins its 2021 competition Wednesday at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla. Eighteen teams, including 17 NBA G League teams and NBA G League Ignite, will play 15 games each from Feb. 10 – March 6. The top eight teams will advance to the playoffs.


THIS DAY IN THE NBA

February 12, 1995 In the 45th annual NBA All-Star Game at America West Arena in Phoenix, Sacramento’s Mitch Richmond scored a game-high 22 points and won MVP honors in leading the West to a 139-112 triumph over the East.

February 12, 1999 Mark Price announced his retirement from the NBA at a news conference at Alexander Memorial Coliseum, where he starred for Georgia Tech from 1982 to 1986.

February 12, 1999 Utah’s Karl Malone became the 10th player in NBA history to log 40,000 career minutes in a game against Golden State.

February 12, 2000 NBA All-Star Saturday in Oakland had Chicago’s Elton Brand winning the Rookie Challenge MVP after finishing with 14 points and 21 rebounds as the 2000 Rookies defeated the 1999 Rookies 92-81 in overtime. The Sony All-Star 2ball competition was won by Utah Jazz guard Jeff Hornacek and Utah Starzz Natalie Williams, as they edged out Phoenix’s Jason Kidd and Jennifer Gillom, 68-61. Hornacek carried his hot shooting into the AT&T Shootout, and became the fourth player in the history of the event to repeat as champion, edging out Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki and Milwaukee’s Ray Allen in the final round with a score of 13. Vince Carter took center stage in the evening’s grand finale and turned in an Oscar-worthy performance, capturing the NBA.com Slam Dunk title. Carter registered three perfect scores of 50 points and distanced himself from a talented collection of high risers, including second-place finisher Steve Francis of Houston and Raptors teammate and cousin Tracy McGrady (third).
