Jumping out there and getting after people

Utah coach Jerry Sloan, whose team has struggled with slow starts recently, on the importance of coming out strong early in the game:

"If you want to play in this league, you've got to jump out there and get after people," Sloan said. "You can't let people bring it to you all the time. Young guys have a tendency to not realize that. They think, 'Get me some shots and worry about the other stuff later.'"
