Last year the Jazz got off to a rough start and a lot of people wrote them off. I'm not about to give up on this team this early in the season. They've played two of the top teams in the west and have been outplayed. Warrick just killed the Jazz by blocking their shots, rebounding, and scoring. Deron didn't shoot the ball well and was out of rhythm going to the free throw line a lot. Milsap and Jefferson did well and they did put Robin Lopez in foul trouble. Their guard players outplayed ours tonight. CJ was blocked by Warrick several times. We've got to somehow get around shotblockers.

atta boys CJ and AK. way to pull through for us again.

Springville, UT

Maybe they should have taken Diaw for AK. Now AK will stink it up all season and have zero trade value. CJ belongs in the D-league or overseas. One dimensional players don't cut it in the NBA. Look at Almond. That's where CJ is headed. Bell is showing his age. The Jazz will be stuck with his contract for three years. Here's hoping Hayward and Evans blossom.

Disinterested,only word I can think of.Denver and the Suns are not the best of the west.It`s early yes but so far so bad.Bench...no shows,Oak City next,YIKES

Catch a BIG wake up gentlemen. If I performed so badly in my job, I would have received a formal warning by now!

Ugh. Confused, timid and indecisive are the three words that come to mind. I'll cut them some slack offensively as the new players get acclimated. What I can't abide is all those first-half layups they gave up. Richardson's dunk right before halftime was inexcusable. My high school coach's head would have exploded and we'd have been running lines at halftime.


The problem is the bench. We're really missing Korver's and Okur's ability to stretch the floor. Hayward shoots a terrible percentage from the field. Watson has been horrible. A combo of Watson, Hayward, CJ, and Fes on the floor at the same time really blows. I say start Fes and bring Millsap off the bench. Hate to do it to Paul, but we need something in that second unit.

It's all about chemistry...it will take some time like it or not...Go jAZZ!

If the Jazz refuse to trade AK, and get value while they still can, than bring him off the bench to play the 4. I would start Hayward. CJ is just horrible. I wish the Jazz would trade AK. Even if AK puts up good numbers, his expiring contract could bring in a draft pick or perimeter defensive player.

It will take some time for these guys to get used to playing together. Replacing key players in a JS offense and then seeing a flawless product will take a month or more. Just hope they can win a few along the way.

What I dont like is when Deron goes 0 for 5 with 3 points and 1 assist in the first half and then yells at his teammates when they make a mistake.

Deron needs to chill. Not everybody is going to run the plays to perfection at this point in the season. What Deron SHOULD be doing is leading by example instead of leading by "do as I say, not as I do."

I think they will get it together eventually but during this process of learning for multiple players, Deron needs to be a little more patient.

Lehi, Utah

It's only two games, no need to get to upset. I will say watching D-Will go after Hayward late in the game was a little disturbing, no need to publicly embarrass a rookie in a game where no player had a great game.

Stubborness and Denial...

Sloan and his "sloanaholics" not one time mention, the usual problem..Giving up "3s'. It is clear to me that the Jazz looked like a tired team from the night before. I am not saying anyone dogged it. But if you are not getting back on defense, and are leadfooted like our front court looked, then bench or put in Evans.

For all of you that say it is "early", hogwash. After 10 games, we should be further ahead in terms of chemistry, Paul saying that I would not have admitted to the media.

Have to remember, Ok city, Portland and Denver makes this a vicious division. If the Jazz cannot do better than (5-5) after 10 games, we will be playing heavy catchup (beyond 2 game deficit) all season.

"Jer and the Holics" also have to realize he needs to cut rotation and define roles.

DWIL should call out the vets not so much a rook who tries and made innocent mistake.

AK numbers are meaningless. He hits one shot for 3, he still cannot finish. That is one reason he scored 19 points with all the free throws.

Seattle, WA

hey but they were undefeated in preseason.

Someone needs to hit a shot eventually. Jazz have absolutely no guard scoring options.

Santa Ana, CA

Elson could help but playing 5 minutes is meaningless. I would go to 10 man rotation, and go with Price for now as DWIL backup....Maybe Earl is intimidated of Sloan or not allowed much freedom. Earl is not playing the fierce driving, ratty pest on defense he did with the Sonics.

If he is not allowed to play "his game" then there is no point for him to play.

I wanted Earl Watson for Earl Watson not Brevin Knight.

The Jazz need to cut to 10 man rotation. It is not good Evans who has a better production in preseason and Denver per minutes played, should not have come in. Fes should have come in also, especially when Phoenix started to pull away after we cut down to 6.

I am sick of no ones like Harrick like Williams the night before come in and humiliate the Jazz with energy and outhustling our bigger guys

How many times are you not guarding the 3? Raja is the only player on this roster that knows to close a gap and rotate...

Why does Sloan leave Frye open time after time, when he just sits in his favorite spot waiting?

Is this a story from last season or this season? I can't tell.

We are missing Memo's ability to spread out the defense.

I'm tired of CJ's and AK's inconsistency.
