WOW! This sure is not the same old Jazz team. Another great game! I have always liked Sloan because he is old school, but questioned some of his substitution patterns. This season he seems to be making all the right calls. If we can pull out a win against Atlanta, the Jazz have my vote for best in the NBA at this point in the season. The scariest thing is they are getting better and better with each game...and we still have Okur coming back at some point.

Love it. This team is turning into a fun one to watch although it would be nice if they didn't have to make a comeback every game.

I was convinced AJ would bounce back tonight and did he ever. Williams, Millsap and AJ had huge 2nd halfs. 24-2 run was incredible, the switch to the 2-3 worked, 3s went down ultimately. We had so much problems in the first half anything inside because of Orlando length and went ice cold.

DWil was tremendous. Orlando killed us on the boards but we did well with the defense even as they could not convert 2nd shots.

Fes got a great chance in important minutes again. He again proved his value which disappoints his critics. Orlando had little way with him patrolling the paint. No coincidence this 24-2 run happened with him on the floor.

Fes had a great plus minus the best I think of anyone.

Scored couple baskets, did a great great job. Also Kirilenko and friends deserve credit for defense best they could on a powerful, tall orlando front line.

Fouling Howard when the game was in the balance was smart, because he helped us like 2 or 3 times making only 1 of 2 free throws.

This team is showing grit last seen when Derek was here

I'm not sure the Jazz have had two games in a row like this since...
Well, I'm not sure I've ever seen it, and I've been watching since 1980.

Two games where average luck went to the Jazz and everything that could go wrong for the Heat and Magic did. Two back to back victories like this may never happen again. Jazz know that they can't keep digging them into a hole. Jefferson looked great against the best center in th NBA today. Take the day off tomorrow guys. Hawks on Friday.

Again? So that mean we will have the habbit for the rest of the season and postseason? Keep it up guys, good job, another W!

Big Al finally started to look like the player we thought he was, Fez was great once again, even with a couple of horrible calls going against him. Raja looked good tonight also. I think they could have gone to Milsap a little more than they did in the 1st half after the game he had last night.

I would like to see Sloan play AJ at power forward with Fez at center occasionally because when Ocur comes back AJ will have to move to the 4 spot and he's going to have to get accustomed to it anyway, Memo is surely not going to play the 4 spot.

Anyone still worried about Paul Millsap filling Boozer's stats?

DWill, Milsap & Big Al will likely be the most consistent go to scorers thru out the year but Big Fes makes a big difference and his defense makes it possible to make the kind of come backs the Jazz have had the last 2 nights. I hope he keeps getting more playing time and gets more comfortable. His defense really makes a difference.
Memo can play the 4 when he comes back because he can go outside and let Big Al have the low post. I love the defense Fes gives the team and hope when Memo comes back he doesn't cause Sloan to bench Fes, the team needs Fes's defense.
Re Todd: Way to go being positive. I enjoy your comments much more when your positive.

Shaybo, I think if the Jazz can find a consistent 3rd scorer behind DWill and Milsap, they are going to feel o.k. with trading Okur. Fes is a better defensive center than Okur by far and he really patrols the paint well. I'm thinking of someone like CJ or Hayward, not AJ, who I think will have plenty of minutes subbing Fes and playing about 1/3 of PF minutes. Fes is definitely a positive now most of the time on the floor. Milsap played another monster game, and he is so smooth, too.

Springville, UT

Another great win. I just hope they get more consistent so it doesn't take comebacks to win every game. Millsap is reminding me of another great power forward from Louisiana Tech. I hope Chicago is enjoying their overpaid cheerleader.

I am very happy with the games the last two nights, as the Jazz have shown they are truly a good team. If/When they begin starting games the way they finished the last two... look out whoever the opponent is.

JAZZ= Western Conference Champions!

DWill - great game as a whole, but could have pushed the ball in the first half.
Bell - great defense and efficient on offense, would love to see him in the 4th rather then Miles.
AK - again great overall game, awesome defense, great energy.
Al - Looks good on the low post, coaches need to play to his strengths and he will continue to impress.
Paul - the guy is a beast, his motor never stops, looks like he has developed the consistency we need at the 4.
CJ - still a mystery, seems to disappear during the game, don't know why he is playing the 4th quarter, he seems to be the only one that is still playing matador defense. However, his shot selection is WAY better then past years.
Price - Nice energy
Fes - Just what we need as a change of pace during the game, opponents get comfortable working the lane, Fes comes in and changes their game plan.
Rest of the subs - all playing their roles perfectly.
Don't know how long this will last, but I'm enjoying the wave.

Layton, UT

Where are all the guys who said AK can't hit the three ball? No one seems to mention that AK was vital in the big wins. I also think too many people gave too much credit to Al, 4 turnovers in the first half alone. Fes needs more minutes he plays strong on both ends of the floor. Al still looks lost on defense. there was a few times he was just looking in circles.

We can't keep playing catch up like this. It's going to come back to bite us. Great win though, we looked awesome later in the game. Can't wait to see the new power rankings. Go Jazz!

I am sick! Turned off the game Tuesday night with the Jazz down 8 and 30 on the clock "that's over". Lesson learned.

Noted better than 85% FT shooting the last three games (including the 2 overtime victories). Love to see teams playing fundamentals

Todd good analysis. Enjoy your comments. Tonight I noticed C J's numbers were down, but his +/- was the highest on the team at + 16, Fes, Milsap and Kirilenko all had + 12's. I mantian that D Will, Milsap, C J, Kirilenko, and Fes have a certain chemistry that is starting to surface.
