If Fesenko indeed does not play tonight, reserve big man Kosta Koufos — who has been inactive for two of the past three games, and didn't play (coach's decision) in five of the prior six — would be added to the Jazz's 12-man active roster.

Deron and AK will play tonight... AND SO SHALL THE KOOF. Via Deseret News' Tim Buckley.

How did you become a BYU fan?

I'm always interested to hear about why people became fans of their favorite teams. In the case of the Cougars, there are three likely reasons: you're a student, you're from Utah, or you're a...

Agent: Millsap is 'missing piece' for Blazers

This dude -- not Millsap's uncle, but the real agent they're consulting with -- is off his nut. Claims Millsap can play 3 positions (center at 6'8" tops? FAIL) and shoot NBA-range 3s.
