Utah Jazz lose, help Nets snap 6-game slide
No-shows again, Jazz fall to lowly Nets
"To be honest, I don't really care," Kirilenko said. "It's totally his idea, his team, his job. My idea and my job is to play for the Utah Jazz. I don't have any clue what they're going to do."
The Jazz seem clueless as to what they're going to do to get back to winning, too — not to mention how they looked on the court.
"I can't say. I don't know what's going on," a very quiet and dejected Jefferson said. "Honestly, I just don't know. I don't know."
Utah only shot 41.6 percent, was outrebounded by double digits (44-31) and dished out fewer assists than its second inferior foe in a row (25-20).
The Jazz opened with a 19-point quarter and scored just 16 in the decisive third quarter after going into the locker room tied at 48.
"It's always surprising," Sloan said. "I think we're better than what we've played."
"I'm not surprised," Jefferson said. "I'm devastated."
With three more road games coming, including a tough one in Boston on Friday, could it be time for an oft-discussed lineup change?
He's the team captain, but Williams isn't about to try to wear the coach's hat, too. Asked if he'll give lineup suggestions, the All-Star point guard gave a quick comment: "Just leave it up to him."
Him, meaning Sloan, who hasn't decided what approach to take after back-to-back blunders.
"I don't know," he said. "We'll see."
