Millsap is a joke....and too short!! He played like a sissy.Deron
is no leader because nobody is following him either.
The Jazz obviously just mailed in this road trip. They should have saved the
travel expenses and just stayed home.
One of the saddest games I've ever seen the Jazz play. How much do DWill and
Big Al get paid again? Yeah, not worth that right now.
very disheartening...very sad!
Well, what Jazz players earned their pay the last three games? Possibly just a
couple of bench players. D-Will usually plays his best when on national TV and
when he is playing against Chris Paul. Meantime, he throws the ball away too
many times and still walks the ball down the floor most of the time like the
Jazz has plenty of time to score. Then Coach Sloan's offense has his people
standing around waiting for everyone to get in place then the game begins.
Makes for a very boring game, added to that, the losses. Finally, the jazz seem
to dislike getting "paint" on their shoes.
Awful! Just awful! Horrible defense, horrible execution, sloppy all the way.
Better figure it out real quick, guys. Sorry, sorry game. Time for some
changes. Lineups, rotation, strategy, SOMETHING.
Dwill already has his goal: all star team. No need to do any more.
All so predictable. Same lineup...Same results. Same issues. Despicable
effort. The Jazz though are getting exploited with lack of size up front.
Millsap and AJ cannot shoot over the tall trees. The Jazz then give up and live
on the perimeter.AJ does not go up strong. He is totally
intimidated by the size he is 6'9 and we are looking at too soft of a player.When Hayward finally comes in which was only due to foul trouble he
produced and looked like he cared.Notice the difference
defensively.Boston makes you earn every point and shadow theyr'e
man.The Jazz never do. Bell, Miles all of them. Tonight Miles just
lets his guy shoot 3s and Allen drilled 2 early. Boston outscored Utah by 15
from the 3 point line and shot 55 percent from the field.The Jazz
made a ton of turnovers. At least Fes played and was respectable.It
is more than couple of losses. If that was only the reason. The trend has been
gone on longer.The Jazz will probably go 0-5 on the trip and come
back in 7th in the West.No trades no changes
One thing is clear Al and Millsap cannot coexist. Beginning of season Al was
learning so did not demand ball much now different story. So many times they
crossed each other. Al isn't center and not real PW kind of hybrid but very soft
and makes Boozer look like monster. Jazz doesn't have chemistry right now.It's
something happening.As I said before Jazz slow starts because of Deron.
Dwill just careless playing and bit slower than last year. Without ball AK
cannot run empty entire game and the end he was Jazz better player on court.
No toughness or desire in the starting lineup. Al Jefferson's OK with
losing, so he'll give up that layup instead of a foul. Milsap's too short...Memo
would work well with Al or Milsap...but Jerry won't do it.Once
there's a change in the starting lineup, things will get brighter. Hayward
and/or Price need to be in the starting lineup. Both AK and Bell don't have the
desire to win. They both have been inconsistent at best. AK has a good game
today, but his AWFUL jump shots hurt the Jazz bad....and they're so ugly!
It was not a good game. Why doesn't Jerry Sloan mix up the line up a bit
because for the past three games the starters haven't done a lot of good in the
first half. It would also be nice to see some bench players get quality playing
time. Just saying. When you look at how the starters performed tonight, not
too good. D-will was limited to only five points and Al Jefferson also had an
off night with seven. Earl Watson and Gordon Hayward came in and stepped it up
a bit for them. Earl Watson has done pretty good on a consistent basis so far.
He deserves to be on the starting lineup.
hey anon how many times AK take a shot? 7 and made 4. over 50 %. and it's awful
for you! You act like idiot if it's true I have no question. Give credit when is
due don't be prejudged. I know you just hate AK.
Yeah, I agree with Nielsen...Earl and Deron works really well...That would
remove Bell from the lineup at least we get him out.
very few on this current jazz roster are willing to talk about why they lost the
game or why they won the game and its those select few jazzmen who are willing
to be interviewed after a win or a loss that should be the leaders of the team.
hell cj miles is younger than d-will and at least cj is man enough to fess up to
also interesting how jerry sloans career winning percentage as a nba head coach
(50-60%) is starting to surface and the jazz are losing because of it.
The past two months have been pretty embarrassing. Something has got to change.
I think it might need to be more than a tweak in strategy. Speaking of which
why have we abandoned the pick and roll? We never run it anymore. If it's
because of Jefferson I'd rather lose him that the pick and role. It's sad I
really do like everyone on this team but it's not working and we may have to cut
someone loose. We could use a deadly shooter but more importantly I think we
need a real bruiser of a center who will pull down 10+ rebounds a game and not
get in the way of Millsap and Dwill running the pick and roll. If we're sure
that Fes cannot do it then lets find someone who can.
Its sad...they played like they didnt care...championship teams..play each game
as if it was game 7 of the finals...you need hunger and determination...and
never underestimating any opponent...they need to move millsap to the bench...he
is definitely more effective that way....move memo to the 5 and big al at
4...keep AK at the three...move someone else aside bell at the 2...DWill is a
very good PG...but...he needs to add leadership...the team should fear him...he
needs to ask John Stockton some pointers...i'd love to blow up this team and
start from scratch through the draft...Kyrie Irving is awesome...but..we arent
good drafting in the first round...
The Jazz will do nothing. Proven when Peja was not pursued. O Connor will not
do anything. He is one of the worst GMS in this sport.
Williams is all about Williams. When things aren't lighting up about him he is a
quitter. He has a nasty attitude when not the star of the show, and I quite
frankly would get him out of here unless this rotten attitude changes, who needs
it? He's made his mark which was the plan from day one and when he's not the
ftar of the show he sulks. Explore options management and get someone in here
with some integrity, grit and fortitude, enough of this coddling and cooing to
I just hope that there is a lockout for 2 or 3 years, maybe this will be what it
takes to wake these players, owners, agents, and union up to what life really
is. Multi million dollar long term contracts have ruined pro sports! It's time
for fans to find other entertainment that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to watch
and get involved in other pastimes and hobbies. Let these primma-donnas starve
or get work where they have to produce daily. What a scam all of the whole pro
scene has become and media plays a big roll in all of it.
Todd,Peja is washed up,done.Millsap and Raja to bench,Memo and Watson
starting,I`d bet that lineup would change the attitude
Only guys who came to play were Hayward and Watson, maybe Andrei. Not even
Deron was in the game tonight. Fix it guys, or we're in trouble.
Remember its not Sloan's job to motivate these guys. It his job to look at
flyers for new JohnDeer tractors...Heck, coach? Who me? There are noleaders on this team...I thought Bell was it, but not at all...Watson, Evans,
Price and Fesenko should be the starters.
MAJOR PROBLEMS:1. We are starting two Power Forwards, three if you count
AK, good around the rim, terrible from the perimeter.2. Raja Bell does not
look to score, drive, assist or rebound, but he can flop like no other!3.
Milsap was standing around the top of the key all night long and Big AL was down
low, was this by design? It's not working.4. AK jacking up outside jump
shots, makes me cringe every time he shoots. He does better when he slashes and
attacks the rim!5. D-Will needs to attack the rim and look to assist, get
his team going early.
On offense no one is moving much nor are they spreading the floor very well, and
last night passing was terrible Pretty much looks like fundamentals are killing
them. What happened to the pick and roll? Do we not have any big
guys that can run it? If Jerry Sloan can't run the pick and roll I don't know
that he has any other weapons. I think they have the athletes to be successful.
I think excuses are getting the best of them. I'm sad but I still like my Jazz
Either start Okur or Fesenko and bring Millsap or Jefferson off the bench...Is
there something wrong with Jefferson attacking the rim?
D-Wiil looked like he belonged in the D league. I watched the Laker-Nugget game
and saw a lot better game last night.
lets trade everyone for the Net's draft pick...cleveland's draft pick and
minnesota's draft pick...what other bottom teams out there? maybe we could get
top 1-4 next year...lol...wishful thinking...that would be awesome though...if i
were in Utah...i'd chant...blow it up...lol
