Wow, what can a person say...probably nothing; it's getting to the point of asking myself "why am I even wasting my time posting?" Love the Jazz to just clearly frustrated..

We played decent for three quarters (good thing they were also off in the 3rd) and then comes the 4th. Oh boy-- We managed 30 pts in the second half. I still can't believe they beat us by 17 pts on our home floor; I don't care if they're a great team in the West. We hung with them for 3 stinkin quarters. I left for what seemed to be like 2 seconds and came back to that??? Absolute nonsense. Our top rebounder had 7 (most of the game Price led with 5). I'm in a stupor of thought right now. Good grief......

Corbin needs to go. I'm officially starting the Hire Jeff Van Gundy Campaign tonight!

Also, would someone tell Corbin that a smart coach, Gregg Popovich/Phil Jackson, plays their best center at PF. What do you have to lose Corbin, aside from your lottery protected draft pick, by starting Fes at C ?

Wow, the jazz lose again?.. What does Andrew Aragon have to say about this?

Ronnie Price showed today why he's still here and I hope he stays. Corbin should try the Pri-son lineup again with Earl and Ronnie. It seemed like he was the only one who actually tried when they were 11 down....bleh, this team really needs a 4th quarter player like Williams was.

Well Jazz Nation you got what you wanted, when Jerry (im not a quitter but I quit) was here half you guys wanted him out.. then you wanted Williams out.. so now you got what you want.. a terrible team with a terrible GM and a small - isolated - market means a terrible team for years to come.... sad times Jazz fans..

Oh and Kris Humphries is averaging a double double..

One more step closer to the lottery. But great effort Price! Wish more players had your heart.

I watched the Jazz and Mavs play tough, physical defense through 3 quarters and 5 minutes of the game--without a lot of calls for the most part, even though Dirk Nowitzki got "phantom" foul calls as usual on about every third shot (typical NBA "star" treatment refereeing).

I stopped watching for a few minutes to put my kids to bed, with the Jazz leading 70 to 68--when I came back, the Jazz were down 94 to 77, just as the game ended. I stayed up watching some other things on TV, and switched back over to the Jazz game replay right when the Jazz went up 70 to 68--I was curious to see what happened.

I noticed the teams played about the same the last 7 minutes, but the Jazz had a lot of turnovers (resulting in Dallas fastbreak baskets) while the Mavs got a lot of foul shots. The only real difference during that time was a subtle change in refereeing. When contact by Dallas caused a missed shot, turnover, or lost rebound there was a "no call." When the Jazz made contact, it was a foul--even on offense. How can the Jazz overcome that?

Nice move management. Not a go to guy on the team!! When you give away your All Star, it can take years to get another one again. Enjoy your early summer Jazz players and management. The way things look we, will have many early summers ahead.

After watching Watson play poorly and with little energy all night, why would you substitute him into a game that you were leading with 6 mins to play. Why would you take out your young future star who was owning the paint defensively at the same time. Finally, why would you take out your best three point shooter over the last 30 days for either a player that is inconsistent and playing poorly or the aging Mr. Bell who still has not got his legs back from a year out of the league. Please, is the coaching staff watching the games or just following a bad old script?

Layton, UT

I don't know why I Bell is out there as long as he is. He is the reason the Jazz lost last night. He blew his assignment twice. He does not shoot well some one tell me why he gets his min?
Price was amazing never gave up on the game kept playing fighting I love his heart. I Hope that Corbin plays his talent now and sits vets. Sorry to say but its better to tank the rest of the games and get a better pick.
Corbin on the rest of his coaching is getting better I am sure next season he will be great. I still want to see what out young guys can do with Fes.

another loss and more excuses from corbin. i don't really blame him for the jazz woes. the players simply don't have the heart anymore to play this season. what i can't take is corbin making all kinds of excuses or positive spin with these losses. he's coaching in utah for goodness sake. he doesn't have to fear any player. he was, in fact, signed up long term by the jazz. i'm sure he gives good, sound instructions to his players during the game. and they mess up. i wish he would get mad and tell it like it is when they lose.

Even the number of comments is dropping. The "albatorss of the ancient mariner" is becoming heavier. "Mighty Casey has struck out".

At this point it is all about the draft and development of the players that are going to be on this team next season. In that regard the Stern officiating actually helped us toward toward a better draft pick last night. I only hope that management will wake up an get us the long legitimate defensive minded center this team has been needing for the last 3 or so years. I hope we are finished using power forwards for centers. Go Kevin! Go Jazz!

i too stepped out of the room for a few minutes during those game changing moments. I left as the jazz were tied, but when I came back dallas was up by four, and in that short time dallas had obviously turned up their game and no one on the jazz did anything on the statement level. The biggest problem for the jazz in the second half was they couldn't get the ball to the rim, i thought corbin should've could've used cj more, he called a couple of plays for cj which didn't work out but went away from it and then the offense dissapeared, should've could've stayed with that until things got going in the right direction, simply because they had to break that zone and the zone broke them instead.

The thing that is frustrating to me is, 1 RBell getting so many minutes. GH is better on both ends of the court. 2 Favors needs as much time as he can get. 3 every team we play kills us from the 3 point line. 4 why don't we have someone who can shoot the ball outside the paint. And last we would be in the same boat if DWill was here.

I really don't see any difference between Corbin and Sloan. They still don't have any real presents down in the paint. They tried early on, but towards the end end it just vanished {use Fes and his fouls}. It just seems that Miller doesn't have the same passion his Dad had.

raja doesnt have it anymore...i really cant understand why they arent giving the rookies the minutes...i mean...come on...give favors hayward evans the time...the last few games should be used to develop them...

The Jazz did really well in the 4th quarter when Hayward and Favors were in - Favors held Dirk to only 2 points in that 6 minutes stretch. Suddenly the veterans go in and Dallas goes on a 13-0 run. Jefferson wasn't getting the calls but the Jazz were allowing dunks and wide open 3's during that crucial point of the game. I like seeing the young players in the game. I can't wait to get some more lottery picks. This draft is loaded with point guards including Jimmer, who we could use our second pick or trade down a few spots and still get him. I'd love Derick Williams or Terrance Morris, maybe Kawhid Leonard. We'll have a Tomac who is like Pau Gasol next year, Okur will be back as well so we won't be taking our lumps next year.
