Two eight-year NBA veterans made their debuts for the Utah Jazz in Wednesday night's exhibition win over Portland, and while both Josh Howard and Jamaal Tinsley each had some shaky moments, on the whole they impressed their coach and the fans at EnergySolutions Arena. Howard, who sat out Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage at ESA, saw 20 minutes of action and came up with eight points and three rebounds, while Tinsley, who didn't play two nights earlier in Portland, had six points, three assists and six rebounds from the point guard position in just 12 minutes. "I thought they both did great," said Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. "Josh is getting in basketball shape, he knows how to play. He's in good shape, but not basketball shape. Tonight was a great opportunity to get him more minutes."
