I went to the scrimmage last night. DWill-Bell-AK-Millsap is the best defensive
combination the Jazz have had in a long time. AK and Millsap had their hands
everywhere.I wasn't impressed with Big Al (he's good, but not worth
$13million yet) I think he'll get there, but it might take a while. He had a
lot of moments where he ran down the court sayign "my bad"I really
really enjoyed watching AK and Millsap together.
I don't see where it says Sap is playing center.. Elston is hurt and will
not play. Fess will get some minutes if he has earned them. Unless a great
miricle happens Fess will still be Fess..
Can't believe their not televising any pre-season games until the 14th.
I'm excited to see what our new guys can bring, I'm happy we made big changes.
It appears that the key players lost over the summer - Boozer, Matthews, and
Korver - have been replaced tit for tat with players like Jefferson, Bell, and
Hayward. I think our expectations for Jefferson are just, and we feel
very comfortable with Bell; but Hayward is an unproven question mark. I believe
he can replace Korver's on court attributes. But the BIG question is this: Will
we see a smattering of pink "Future Mrs Hayward" shirts at ESA?
Line up looks good on paper... let's see how it pans out this year. I'm
Why play Milsap at Center? Why not see what Fesenko can do, it's only the
preseason? I also would like to be able to watch this game on TV. Good Luck
Jazz, our guards need to shine tonight! GO JAZZ!!
Sloan is right. Who finishes is the more important thing. Sloan's
substitutions really bug me sometimes. Sometimes it seems like he's just
watching the clock, and not subbing based on who's struggling, or who has the
Good solid starting unit,I`d say these are the same 5 that will be in at the end
when game is on the line,gonna miss Korver and Matthews a bunch
I'll be interested to see how well Big Al plays in Sloans offense. It will
be interesting to see who finishes the games, although these first several
preseason games he may have a lot of the new players in at the end of the
games.It doesn't sound like CJ hasn't been playing at a level Sloan has
been happy with until the last couple of practices. Hopefully CJ will come in
with energy and there won't be a drop off. I really hope Hayward, Evans
and Thompson show well and get enough PT to contribute.Sloan usually likes
to bring a vet off the bench with the second unit, so this starting unit may not
be the one that starts the season. I do like this unit though, I like the idea
of Bell and AK on the same unit.It doesn't appear that Fes has been done
much to convince Sloan he should be playing. Haven't been hearing anything about
him, ( good or bad).
I want to see what Hayward can do. It's nice to have a bunch of new players
that are excited about Utah basketball!
Too bad it's not televised. I'd like to see this one!
