Reminiscent of the Miami game? What's the common denominator here? Deron Williams racking up loads of assists running the pick and role with Millsap and Millsap being allowed to show the world what a stud he is. Let's see more of. I think Big Al is a good addition to the team but this is Millsap's show give him the ball!

The Jazz deserve credit tonight after halftime for finally getting serious, proving again Defense and more Defense wins games. Tonight CJ had his ON night, (likely will stink again Wednesday. Nonetheless, he kept us afloat without being buried in the first half. Jefferson took over the 3rd, and Paul helped by mid range game the 4th quarter and Overtime.

The Jazz finally tonight focused on stopping Houston 3 point capabilities. Was not until the end when Battier had couple open 3s, that the defense made couple slips. However, he missed them.

The Jazz have to continue this effort of recognizing 3 point shooting teams. It was great for once not to see Houston have float guys or any team behind the line. They gave up. The Jazz defensed well. They got to the loose balls, the hustle plays to save the ball and start the transition.

We took advantage of Houston lack of size, athleticism and power with theyr'e front court. Sloan did good job and DWIL to focus on getting AJ and Paul the touches. Watson off bench had uncharacteristic 4 turnovers, but helped with 6 points and EVEN 2 blocks!

We needed this one badly

So dont watch Booyatzee???? Personally i think they are insightful and bloody hilarious. They arent Hot Rod by any stretch of the imagination but they still make the game fun.

I LOVE having Matt Harpring as a commentator. He really sees what is going on and explains it in a way that I, as a measly spectator fan, can understand it. Just my opinion.

Jazzboys do it again!!! I was fairly breathless at the end while trying to uncross all of my fingers. Now if they just don't get too comfortable with these next several days off so they can take on Amare and the Knicks.

Go Jazzboys!!!

We won yes but not an impressive win against a bad team.Millsap saved us.Other than CJ not much from the bench.I`m serious about starting Watson and moving DW to the 2,Raja is just not getting it done,what do you all think?

Someone turned the kill switch on in the fourth quarter. Milsap had something like 5 points going into the 4th. and than he decided he needed to step up. It is becoming much more obvious what is slowing the starters down, it is Raja Bell. It is like we are only playing 4 against the other teams 5. Raja should be coming off the bench and CJ Miles should be starting, this would help avoid the sluggish starts and deep holes we have to dig out of almost every game. Why is CJ not a starter? Is CJ in Jerry's "dog house"? Seriously, START CJ MILES! This team lacks shooters, but with Memo coming back, he should help the bench scoring and Raja can run with Watson and the 2nd group. After watching all the slow starts this season, I can contribute this by lack of shooting, hitting open jump shots. Not having a 2 guard that wants to score hurts the starting line up, D-Will cant do it by himself, he needs help and CJ is the answer right now.

Great win but the Jazz are hard to watch sometimes.

Try listening to Miami, Atlanta, or Orlando announcers. It is painful. By the comparison, the Jazz announcers are terrific.

I hope this means that D Wills mid season lull is over. Like Sloan said after the game." The second half of this one shows you what happens when Deron gets people the ball."

It was good to see some defense in the second half. Rebounding as well.

Good to see the real Miles back in action too.( I'm C J'd out, from now on with me it's Miles.) He kept us in the game in the 1st half.

If Milsap and Jefferson keep playing like they did in the second half of this one and we have one of the 7 footers step it up. We will have a better chance to compete

Bolerjack is a totally different person when he does stuff on CBS, he is actually one of the best. But on Jazz games he needs to act more professional, call the game, not 1 person tuned in to hear you ramble!

Harpring is good but he follows Bolerjack's lead in to commentary that is deplorable. Call the GAME!!

I don't think DWill wants to move over to the 2, I would be in favor of CJ starting but there are problems with that too. Coming in as the 6th man CJ has the green light to fire away and score at will, coming in with the starters CJ will be more like the 4th option and he may start standing around more, he already does that too much. We do need someone like CJ to help get the starters going though, if CJ would come in as a starter with energy and attack the basket, I would be in favor of him starting.
Question is, would he or will he defer to Milsap, Big Al and DWill.

CJ Miles

Jerry can start whomever he wants to start. The bigger problem is how Jerry substitutes. He doesn't need to wait 10 minutes every game to finally sub if they are not doing well in the scoring column.

CJ is hot last night but only gets 21 minutes even though the first half was horrible with the starters once again. Why can't Jerry pull some starters early if they didn't come to play? Isn't he the coach?

But again, a win is a win no matter how you do it!!

Finally in the 2nd half, some energy by a couple of players. Isn't it amazing what effort, desire and heart will do for a person and or team?

Pick and roll Stockton to Malone! Pick and roll Williams to Millsap! Not quite the same ring, but still an amazing outcome! I've been saying all year that they should run the pick and role for Millsap.

Yes yes yes,I like the combo of watson at point and DWill at the 2. I love dwill but sometimes I think he dribbles way too much. And guys start standing around watching and not moveing.I mean when a guy dribbles that much how do you know when to start executing the play? I must admit when the Jazz get into a passing game and move the ball around they are very successful and its alot more fun to watch!
