I was just talking with my family last night about Raja. He has been playing
like he's been fighting through an injury. But he's Raja Bell, and he will play
through a nagging injury. However, I do hope he sits a couple of games, because
a healthier Raja will have a huge impact on this team.
The Jazz are already thin off the bench. But Raja should rest it and work on
his stroke while sitting out. He isn't good enought to play at 75% against
Oklahoma. Price is a good replacement for the pace of the game tonight.
Price would be a good choice. Give Bell a couple of games to heal. Coach may
have had this move in mind anyway. Jazz should have kept thirteen players until
Okur comes back..
this is good news....hope Hayward makes the best of it....and get a decent
statline...and contribute on the defensive end...i feel sorry for the guy...not
Jazz lose. Hayward will be good someday but for right know is is impersonating
Kosta. Way Way too soft. Send him to the D-League for a few weeks.Thity minutes
of hard basketball three to four nights a week should do it.
the kid is afraid...man...i have high hopes for Gordon Hayward...he should be
confident...he has the tools...the IQ and the skills to put up solid
numbers...he needs to get confident
Hayward is gonna be fine, but I like the thought of having him go to D league
for 10-15 games sometime during the season. It's bound to be more competitive
than summer league was, and it will give him a chance to really improve his
conditioning and get game-condition practice for his shooting.People
always talking about Okur coming back. Hey, this team will go further in the
playoffs with better 3-point shooting from Bell, Hayward and Miles, and more
minutes by their only center with real defensive talent, Fesenko. Coach Sloan,
you have got to play him more. Don't wait for an injury to Jefferson. Just start
Fes, have Jefferson back up Fes first and then later in the quarter, Jefferson
can back up Milsap.
