Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder is known for his fiery demeanor.
The first-year skipper has made a habit of going full-nuclear on the bench trying to motivate his team, but Snyder topped all his previous efforts in Tuesday night’s game against the Timberwolves.
Apparently, Coach Snyder was so disappointed in his team’s play he called a timeout to voice his displeasure.
Only he didn’t voice anything. In fact, Snyder spent the entire timeout giving his players the stink-eye in total silence.
Quin Snyder said, and the players confirmed, that for one full timeout, Quin just said nothing and stared at the players. It worked.

This is amazing. I don’t know what was going through the minds of guards Gordon Hayward and Trey Burke, but it worked. The two combined for 52 points and led Utah to a 100-94 win.
