Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Collin Sexton has checked in and immediately throws an over the head outlet pass to Lauri Markkanen for a fast break dunk.
Then hits a three on his first shot.
Safe to say Jazz won the trade. 😉

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Line change:
Raptors go to Young, Achiuwa, Boucher first of the bench – 6:25 PM

Jazz down 14-10 with 6:24 left in the 1st
Markkanen has 4 points, Beasley and Conley both with 3.
Jazz shooting 4/11 from the field, 2/7 from 3. – 6:23 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Raptors up 4 at first time out; been to a ton of pre-season games, this one’s got some juice because the fans are really into it – 6:21 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
A very high-energy start from Scottie Barnes, including a turnaround over Vanderbilt and jumping the lane for a steal. – 6:21 PM

Ryan McDonald @ryanwmcdonald
I haven’t been more intrigued by a Jazz game in years, playoffs included, than I was in today’s. This is horrible – 6:19 PM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Malik Beasley- not afraid to shoot – 6:19 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Two quick fouls on Olynyk and he didn’t like either. He remains in. – 6:19 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
I’m certainly not sure about the new Jazz outfits
(Inaugural fashion note o’ the year) – 6:16 PM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Lauri Markkanen scores the first basket of the new @Utah Jazz era.
A turnaround mid-ranger jump shot, just as the analytics call for.
(But seriously he’s got that skill, and the post game is cool.)
#takenote | @kslsports6:15 PM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
There is a lot more wingspan than I’m used to seeing with a Jazz team – 6:14 PM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
I heard if you complained on twitter about the Jazz new jerseys AT&T Sports specifically blocked you out of preseason game 1 so you have to watch Rockies baseball. – 6:13 PM

Utah Jazz @utahjazz
first 5️⃣ up ⤵️

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
First time VanVleet, Trent, Barnes, Anunoby and Siakam have started a game together since Game 1 of the Sixers series back on April 16. – 6:11 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
New-look Jazz starting lineup vs. Toronto: Conley, Beasley, Markkanen, Vanderbilt, Olynyk – 6:09 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Incoming: Preseason NBA tweets. Also, based on this crowd (and the one on Friday night in Victoria), I don’t want to here “Outside of the GTA, Canadians don’t care about the Raptors” ever again. – 6:08 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Kelly Olynyk get the start for the new-look Utah Jazz vs. Raptors here at Rogers Place in Edmonton where they are very crazy for *their* Raptors. Seriously the love for Toronto’s team outside Toronto is something. – 6:07 PM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Raptors/Canada national team coach Nick Nurse on NAW: “He’s played very well for us the last two summers, especially this summer he really shot the ball, like, really made the 3-ball… “…. CONT… – 6:06 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
No Otto Porter, no Justin Champagnie for Toronto and the usual suspects — VanVleet, Trent, Barnes, Anunoby, Siakam — will start. Expect them to watch the second half
This place, as the young ‘uns say, is lit
(If they still say that) – 6:05 PM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Considering it’s the first preseason game I read wouldn’t think too much into the Collin Sexton not starting decision.
But, you can already see the difficulty of having too little size with Sexton/Conley starting, and the redundant skills with Sexton/Clarkson off the bench. – 6:04 PM

Ryan McDonald @ryanwmcdonald
We really have to keep watching this baseball game instead of the Jazz game? – 6:02 PM

Utah Jazz @utahjazz

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Will Hardy on the Jazz young players ahead of first preseason game:”If they want to play & earn a spot in the rotation, they have to do the dirty work. Those guys have to step up to an NBA level of physicality, play defense, try to do all the little things out there.” – 5:34 PM

Porter and Champagnie are out. Young, Birch, Koloko available. – 4:54 PM

Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun
Raptors going with Fred VanVleet
Scottie Barnes
Gary Trent Jr.
OG Anunoby
Pascal Siakam to start preseason tonight. – 4:53 PM

David Locke @DLocke09
Toronto is a unique team on the both ends. Offensively, they run a very low pick and roll volume and more handoffs and isolation. Defensively, they are interchangeable and play with high pressure and enormous amout of switching – 4:40 PM

David Locke @DLocke09
Nick Nurse says he will get a brief look at the main guys of the Toronto Raptors. Tip off at 4 pm MTN time on 97.5 FM as well as @Sirius XM NBA or NBA league pass and @Utah Jazz app – 4:22 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Otto Porter is listed as having a hamstring strain and is out vs. Jazz, as is Justin Champagnie with right hip soreness. – 4:14 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Otto Porter (left hamstring strain) and Justin Champagnie (right hip soreness) will miss the Raptors’ preseason opener vs Utah in Edmonton today. Thad Young (left knee soreness) and Khem Birch (rehabbing from offseason knee surgery) are listed as questionable. – 4:09 PM

Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Celtics commit 25 turnovers.

Very cool by the NBA to give Canadian referee Matt Kallio the Raptors-Jazz game tonight.
The game is in Edmonton.
Matt Kallio is from … Edmonton. – 1:25 PM

Good lord, have the Warriors found yet another diamond in the rough low in the draft? Patrick Baldwin Jr. looks like the real deal. Sweet stroke, hits the boards, plays smart. If he keeps it up, he might get some of those Otto Porter minutes, a guy who also was a Jr. – 12:22 PM
