Whoever wrote this knows nothing about basketball, look at the plus minus for the bench and then try and figure out why you gave them a B-!! Everyone one of the starters had a negative +/- but the bench was great. It isn't only about scoring, rebounding and assists!

Favors and CJ were huge last night. The bench deserved an A since they played against the Clips starters and produced big time. It was Harris, Hayward and Howard (The three "H's") that should have gotten an D last night.

The Jazz lost when Watson got hurt.

didn't they lose to a pretty bad team? a B-? I would think a D+ generous.

I agree with the poster above, this is probably done by some stat geek who thinks he knows something but basketball and athletics but really doesn't.

It isn't fantasy basketball. There are intangibles involved. Plus, the most important stats in basketball are shooting percentage and point differential, the latter determined by defensive effort. It sounds like the bench kept the Jazz in the game.
