Talking effort all the time is fine, but there are at least two Jazz players who get lots of minutes and rarely play good defense. You know who they are; they are the ones who get close to an opponent with the ball and act like a near-blind pickpocket, poking with their hands. We simply need more of Kanter, more of Favors, and more of Burks. Sure all three make their share of mistakes, but all three can play some good defense. And Burks may be the only Jazzman who can, more often than not, stay between the ball and the basket guarding a swift point guard.

When energy & effort is needed we have 2 players who ride the pine consistently whom I believe could deliver that, How about some PT for Burks & Evans, and throw in Tinsley Ty?

Here is the lesson they ought to have learned.

1. Their supposed "shooting coach" name Hornacek should be fired. The best 3 point % is .365 and the majority are shooting below 30%. That is abysmal.

2. If they don't trade for someone quick to get some outside shooting they will be in next seasons lottery and their tickets will be selling on Groupon. Mark my words.

3. Devin Harris continues to be awful and could not set up a lemonade stand let alone one of his team mates.

I think it is coach Corbin who needs to learn a lesson after back to back losses, there was plenty of energy and hustle when the 2nd team was in there and Josh Howard has been playing like garbage since he came back from the injured list, meanwhile he's playing him like hes 6th man.

Jazz Source, it's not the shooting coaches fault, it's the fault of the GM and Coaches who keep coming up with people that can't shoot. It's very rare that a player can be taught to shoot from outside when they don't have a few basic outside skills.
