Capt L you`re right it`s hard to feel good about this win.Seems like it was 4 against 12.Clippers,Warriors,Memphis and NO are all better this year and Houston will come around.Hope our bench turns it on and yes we are very very weak at the 2 with Raja(old) and Miles(miles) we are a middle of the pack team and anyone that thinks otherwise is delusional

Wow! Where's Korver? Not one good 3 point shooter on this team, not one! This is going to be an up & down season and making the playoffs to be one and done isn't going to satisfy anyone, but that more than likely is the reality for this year.

Houdini, it was more "YOUR INFLUENCE" that I listened more than others, that told me the reasons to be more positive, but you have been more "negative than Me" in recent weeks.

I will say this till I am blue in face. Yes CJ is inconsistent, still he will provide more consistent scoring starting. This should be adequate, he just needs to average 15 ppg.

Colorman Mike Smith of the Clippers last night thought the Jazz lost too much with Korver and Matthews. He said nothing about Jefferson for Sleepie.

I for one would take, the effort, the defense of AJ any day. He blocked 2 shots in a quick sequence.

I will still take this Jazz Roster added with Okur back collectively over versions of the last few years....

9 points from the bench won't get it done on the road, neither will spotting the other team a double digit lead in the first quarter. I hope the whole team comes ready to play at Miami

I think the Jazz should have brought Brewer back instead of say Watson. It would have given us more depth, Why do they always have three point guards?
If worst comes to worst they could have AK or Miles bring up the ball.

like i always say on my previous comments...it will be a very rough first half of the season...i wont expect them to get it going till mid december to early january...there are some questions regarding player rotations...getting a feel of everyone's game...its either they pick it up after all-star weekend or they should try getting more useable pieces...

Did the Jazz win the game? At the end of the year no one remembers CJ went 1 for 13. They remember the win. He must have been doing something right for Jerry to keep playing him!! Kobe has plenty of 1 for 13's in his career and isn't he the best in the world? More importantly CJ made an impact on the game with his d, rebounds and assists

Layton, UT

I am not completely sold on CJ. He has tried more on defense but he still lacks on his overall game. Ak is showing a lot promise I just wish D Will would get his butt back in shape. It not that he is hurt he is sluggish and can't seem to get the lift he needs or defense. We really need a 2 guard or switch Gordon to the 2.

Antimony, UT

It made me laugh to read comments ripping CJ. Yes he didn't shoot the ball well, but everyone has a bad game. It just shows that people that make these comments obviously don't know sports and know that bad games happen and some nights you just can't find your shot.

Re Todd: Your right Houdini has been neg alot lately.
I also agree that this team is better than last years team.
It's a little like seeing and know CJ has alot of potential and talent, this team has more potential and talent on it than last years team BUT will the team be as inconsistent as CJ or is it just because they haven't had enough time to work the kinks out.
I think the way they have been playing so far this season they will be lucky to come back home with 1 win on this 4 game road trip. Hope I'm wrong but that's how it feels.

Good call about Fes needing to play more to help his development as a player and also to preserve Millsap and Jefferson a bit more.
Unfortunately Coach Sloan is a one dimensional and inflexible coach which means he has his ideas on Fes his rotaions and will not change them much - regardless of the benefits these changes may bring.

As he has stated before, he'd rather lose than change the way he coaches. Seriously, what hope does a team have of meaningful success when that is the attitude of it's leader.

Jazz fans, don't expect any different and you wont be disapointed when the inevitable happens.
Middle of the road regular season team and an early playoff exit.

23rd verse, same as the first.

Salt Lake City, UT

I think the comments about giving Elson and Fes more time on the court to preserve Millsap and Al are interesting. I agree that tons of minutes are not good for our big guys, but this team is only going to go as far as the chemistry of Millsap and Al will take them. Time together is the only way they'll build that chemistry.

So, what do you do? Risk injuries by playing them too many minutes, or risk a lack of chemistry by not giving them adequate time early in the season to promote unity and chemistry. I don't know the answer... so I'll just trust Jerry's judgment.
