Which play was that again?

The streaking Jazz have enjoyed having Big Al Jefferson as part of their line-up this season. He has given them some solid post scoring and has helped to free up other players whenever he gets the ball in the post.

He has had some troubles getting acclimated to the complex Jazz offense though. During a game last week, he realized he still has a way to go.

"I told him we've got 25 or 30 more plays," Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I thought he was going to pass out." This revelation was told to Jefferson after he missed a screening assignment during a game against Toronto. Apparently Sloan called for some plays to be run during that game that hadn't been "reviewed" in training camp this fall.

Still, Jefferson has been very teachable so far, and should learn the complex offense soon enough.
