The Jazz lost to Golden State and needed 2 overtimes to beat the Clips who were without Davis? Man, that's gotta hurt.

Pale Bear: The bottom line is the Jazz are willing to fight their way to get the win. Deron Williams was outstanding and even though it wasn't pretty they battled back in the second half. The teams like the Clippers and Warriors are different than last year but this Jazz team is much better than a year ago.

A win is a win. A little off topic here I just found out that Ante Tomic singed a 3 year contract extension, will he ever play here??? If He's as good as they say he is then management should definitely consider buying him out.

Involve AK in offence you'll get better result. Harpring referring last 2 games give a ball >Ak sometimes. Jazz is in deron's hand.
One thing I couldn't understand why shooting 3's instead driving to basket for high % shot.

IF we play like we did on Friday it will be an 0-4 trip.....

Whatever happens this trip, it should show good or bad what this jazz team is made of......

Deron Still doesn't look like his old self. It looks like he is hurt.

Nice comeback for sure, but the Jazz looked awful at times in the first half. And, more importantly, too much matador defense down the stretch by Jazz players. I can't believe that Fesenko wasn't playing more in a back-to-back situation. He can minimize drives to the basket, and Jefferson looked tired out there a lot. Also, Jefferson's isolation in the low post where he pushes up a one handed prayer push shot is not a high-percentage shot. I know it's early in the season and he is new to the system, but he needs to pass out of that situation more. I want to see Fesenko play much more at center, Jefferson much less at center and more at PF, and Milsap continue playing his good all-around play at PF for about 32-35 minutes a game.

We watched from afar and hung in to cheer the Jazz on. How about a lot more of that attitude from those who live nearer to the homebase?

Jazz still have their old habit from last year by spoting the opposing team high double digit points right off the bat. They end up losing about four of five games when they do that. I see our CJ person has not commented as of yet. One for thirteen shooting from Miles!!?? That has to be his worst game ever. And yes Golden State and the Clippers ARE better teams this year. This year they are no longer a gimmie..

Syracuse, UT

Must trade Miles, he's so unpredictable

Great shooting night Miles....WOW!

I think we will continue to see this in the Jazz for awhile. They are going to be inconsistant looking great at times and out of sync at times until they get about 20 games under their belt. I think Jefferson is still finding his way and is missing what are easy shots for him that he will start making with more consistancy. Millsap has completely taken over Boozers role on the team and when CJ is on he fills the void left by Korver. I still can't wait to see the front line of Memo, Big Al, and Millsap on the court together. If we see some growth from the young players on the bench and get healthy we will be much better by the all star break. I know D-Will wants to get Big Al on that all star team but Millsap seems like the one going there now

Even though it was a win it felt like a loss.
Big Al still not in a groove, not hitting his little push/jump hook/ Weegie.
CJ leaves me frustrated when he plays like he did.
Fes played well and should have been given more playing time.
D Will needs to come out and start the game aggressive and they probably wouldn't get in such a hole.

Santa Ana, CA

Millsap sat a long while struggling at beginning guarding Kaman. He came back later to contribute. Last night the 18 million dollar boy was on with his shots. DWIL played a great game coming off a poor performance in Oakland. CJ miracle 3 proved to be critical in the final outcome. He got some big offensive rebounds with his hustle so helped even though the "1-13" from the field.

DWIL though was the key driving us on to victory, answering Clipper scores repeatedly.

However, we will not do well on this critical trip where I feel we need to go 2-2 without better performances from most of the others

Delta, UT

i think its still too early to tell about this jazz team. cj miles and AK are the x factors. its amazing we won with CJ shooting 1-13. but Ak played well. also sloan needs to play fesenko more he gives us hustle and toughness. 2-2 on this road trip would be good this early in the season. and rememeber golden state and the clippers are much better teams this year.

Does anybody know why Coach Sloan took Raja Bell out of the game in favor of Miles? C. J. was 1 for 13. If he could have made even an average number of those shots we wold have won the game walking away. I don't see why they kept giving him the ball to shoot late in the game while Raja sat on the bench.

As the season progresses Fes and Elson are going to have to get more minutes or Milsap and Jefferson will wear out. Fes pulled down 3 rebounds, had 2 blocks and 2 pts in only 6 minutes of play. The Jazz need to see more of Fes, out there on the court getting playing time. You want him ready this year come playoff time. Elson has shown toughness and a knack for rebounding the basketball. His rebs. per minute are the highest on the team, he needs to play more too. Lets don't run Milsap and Jefferson into the ground when we have two very capable backups in Fes and Elson.

Lehi, UT

It seems like this team plays better when they run the floor rather than standing around on the offensive end, while one or two guys run through the post. Lack of movement and taking jump shots when nobody is under the rim to rebound, and if someone is under the rim they are getting boxed out. Poor shot selection lately and not making the extra pass, or hesitating and not being fluid. The Jazz need to be more focused and much more intense throughout the whole game. Keep working hard! I love the effort Fes gave last night too. GO JAZZ!

Holladay, UT

I was at the game last night. Despite CJ's poor shooting, I would not say he had a terrible game. He came up with a couple important hustle plays that got the crowd into it. Also, he played solid defense when needed.

I think Raja's age is a factor in his playing time. I saw a couple of defensive series where he smothered Eric Gordon, but I think that led to him tiring faster.
