more excuses from ty corbin. why can't he just admit his team played badly in the 4th? or, as in the case of the previous games, didn't execute well in the closing minutes. maybe he should even get mad. making excuses never fix anything.

I hope they feel the frustration from their fans, too! I don't know what's more difficult, having a good team play lazy or now having a bad team play hard and not succeed. We've had both this year.

I follow the Jazz for entertainment and for 3 1/2 quarters last night it was highly entertaining but the meltdown was excruciating and I walked our early seeing the Jazz had quit. We have a very young team, draft pick potential, and a great fan base - now Jazz management, put together a team that can be entertaining again. Clue: Entertaining = winning!!!

Wow Corbin, you missed the mark on this one. I agree that your excuses are super ridiculous and they are getting old. These guys can play basketball, but something is sucking the raw emotion out of them. When you say things like, "We just got to get better...We have to be learning from situations...getting a little bit tougher" and, "Before you had guys like a Deron to make a play or make an easier play for someone else and it's new for them." Also, "Offensively, we've got to get better (at) executing and trusting each other."

Do you see what I see? Yes, a lack of faith in your team is what I see. I don't see you talking about anything they do well. Why would they want to finish a game? They don't have Deron, they don't have the offense, they're not tough enough. By all means, they should be losing.

This Jazz team as it is could rule the NBA if they wanted to with their talent level. I'm glad Jefferson got those techs and was tossed, at least something on this team is alive.
