It is real hard to be positive about how this team is playing, I watched the
first half but then switched to the Cougars, saw very little of the second half.
The Jazz play little to no defense, I think Minn. made at least there first 10
or 12 shots, no one on the Jazz has enough pride to say OK this isn't going to
happen while I'm on the court, it was just terrible effort.I did see that
Hayward had a decent game, I hope he keeps it up. Favors has a ways to go from
what I have seen. I like the little I saw of Cousin. Fes has been frustrating
lately.It's time to look forward to the draft, I just hope NJ doesn't keep
winning and pass Det or others to give us a worst draft pick.Barnes,
Jones, Jones, Vesely, what does everyone think? What other players does everyone
like? I'm not sure whether I like Harris or not, too soon to tell, but we
may want to look at a pt guard with our second lottery pick.
Three things died for me during last night's game:1. My last dimming
hope that this team might make the playoffs.2. My hope that Fes will
ever be a serviceable NBA player. I have liked him from the beginning (and
still do). But, three years in now, I have to admit that he is probably a bust.
I wonder more and more how much he cares about a career in the NBA. Maybe he
would be happier in some other line of work. The talent is there; he can't seem
to develop it. For the first time I will understand if the Jazz don't resign
him next year.3. My confidence that CJ will develop into a reliable,
night-in, night-out contributer. He just doesn't seem to come through when it
matters most (like now, when he is about the only realistic shooting option).
He is now on the bubble as I see it. I want to see him succeed as much as I do
Fes, but I am now very doubtful.
To me, Harris will be here he is likely to get better but needs more time here.
Next season Fesenko, (reluctantly), Elson, Millsap, Miles, Bell and Okur should
all be looked at for trade bait and AK unless he takes a reduced salary. We
need to rebuild with the youth and get more length and a shooting guard. I am
ready to move on to next season, besides I have Arena Ball and RSL>
This ship is sinking, the playoffs look over because this team cannot put
anything together. Looks like no playoffs for me as I do not care about other
teams. When the Jazz have all that effort play a little D for a few minutes and
come back to within 2 there is hope. 5 minutes later it is dashed, and maybe 20
later after a 33-9 run it is all over. Losing yet again to the Timberwolves who
have a real coaching staff in place. The way it is going in a year or so they
will be next to overpass us. I have to say Devon has been disappointing and
regressing, I did not realize he was going to be another Ronnie PRice and be out
of control on his drives. Aj has played well lately so he gets points for
standing up and blaming himself tonight he gets a pass. The others do not save
the Rookies who played hard. Bell, Kirilenko and Miles none of them I am elated
with. If it was up to me I only brink AK had reduced salary and start cleaning
house with some of the more marketable guys left.
Evans, Hayward, and Favors are the future of this team. Harris will be around
for a while and I hope he gets his groove back. I don't know about Al, I like
him as a scorer, I just don't know if he is a winnder. Anyway,
looking forward to rookie contribution each game. Play em more please, jeez.
The Jazz should hire Stocton and Malone as their strength and condtioning
coaches... teach them how to get over the Boozeritus.
They look like the farthest thing from a team ever right now, there is
absolutely no team basketball going on out there and that is obviously affecting
the defense. Teams have consistently been shooting close to 60% against this
team, that is just sad. It seems since Deron left and there is no one to really
distribute the ball to everyone goes one on one and we don't have those kinds of
players on our team. Hope they can find some kind of heart and pride left to
just finish the season strong...so much for playoffs.
Well all I can say is the Jazz looked like the Generals and the Wolves looked
like the Globetrotters. Also if it's OK to blame Obama for the recession then
it's OK to blame Corbin for the play of the Jazz. I am no expert, but he needs
to punish them with box out drills, defending the 3 drills and just basic
fundamentals and I mean punish them until they decided to play hard and quit
embarrassing themselves and the fans. With that said the only bright spot is
Cousin, Evans, Favors, and Hayward. I have been a Fess fan, but him CJ and Bell
got to go.
Thank goodness for Jimmer and the Cougs. If not for them, I would be highly
depressed. For now, I can just pretend the Jazz don't exist. I am trying not to
be a fair weather fan, but they are making it very tough for even the most
devoted fans. It is the seeming lack of heart that gets to me. Please Jazz...at
least look like you care.
AK has expiring contract, and please let Bell go, he is done. Trade away Memo
and let's start all over again next season.
The wheels have come off.
AK= 8 points.Bell= 6 points.What a bunch of clowns.
Jazz management let Deron Williams probably force Sloan to retire, then trade
Williams to save face. Now the team has no superstars and heart! Thanks to
Greg Miller and Kevin O'Connor, they will lose money and fan support! What a
way to destroy a team.
lol. not even a moral victory. 5th worst team in the league destroyed the jazz.
oh well. off to chicago then and hope for a moral victory (meaning a loss by
less than 5 points). i hope korver and brewer don't drop 50 points combined on
us. lol. good thing boozer is sidelined. it would be extremely embarrassing if
he goes off to a 30 points 14 rebound game on us. that would make a lot of
people look stupid. lol
Its time for forget about the Jazz. BYU and Utah State deserve our support. At
least they seem to give it their all.
How's that Devin Harris (4 TO's in 20 minutes) tradey-changey thingy workin' out
Was anybody in Utah even watching this game while the Jimmer show was taking
place? While I love the Jazz, I hope that they miss out on the playoffs,
as we will just get knocked out in the 1st round. Get a draft pick, and
Yeah hard to say something positive about that one. Coach has some tough
decisions to make. But in the wake of more important things happening in the
world it was not the end of my day by any means.
Gut the team and start all over.KOC is the man.
"Sputtering?" More like conked out.
What a sad game, the Jazz are really bad! I knew they were struggling but this
is worse than I ever imagined. Destroyed by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Nothing on this team even worth watching. Nice defense Jazz
and Nice job KOC!! The Bulls should be really worried(sarcasm)
Got my vote for worst game of the season.
