Sloan can see what`s going on and who is earning more minutes,that`s why both Harpring and Korver are out there,our bench plays like this,watch out Western Conference!


Again it is one game. If we can't win on the road it won't matter. Korver came in and made shots. Harpring made plays all night long. With everyone healthy, we have a great bench. CJ came out of the game early because he was in foul trouble. You can't say he had a bad game as he couldn't have an impact on the bench. That's how some games go. But Korver picked him up. Good teamwork.

miles is terr i ble

Having miles play is a joke, honestly i'm really not a fan and think korver should get the nod.

Keep it Going!!!

Hooray!!!!Korver is on a roll!!!!So terrific to see him hit those 3's! What a beautiful sight!

Way to go Harpring and the whole bench!!!

The whole game was a joy to watch!!!!

Let's keep it going guys!!!

Miles comments?

Korver have one good game and everybody jazz fan think he back? one game people? Miles still better then korver and I think Korver should play less then Miles, Bandwagon jazz fan are jokes, watch game and don't be bia

That play with harpring was good entertainment. I was laughing. It was a hard foul, albeit, but that's what you'd want. And korver was so quick, korver made his move to harpring before harpring went to make his; I thought it showed some knowledge for harpring as a person.
But it goes for the saying, the jazz aren't going to be getting their homecourt advantage on the road, and when the calls stop coming their way, it's going to be tougher, especially, if they stand around and try to argue with the officials; which is something that is a little concerning-the disposition to argue with the official while the game is going, the other team has the ball.
Really, you'd just like to see the jazz not get so upset about not getting calls, especially on the road; because that's kind of the way it goes, and if they can just accept that they'll be in a better position. Home or road, you can't control what the officials are going to do, especially on the road, so go out and do the best to make plays.

After seeng Harpring's fall, I was concerned that he has a concussion or possibly even a compression fracture to his lower spine...he hit pretty hard, but like the tough man he is...he wanted to let the other team know they wouldn't get away with it. Then he proceded to make them pay with his scoring and defense...way to bring it Harpring!


That`s right "clueless",just one game....problem is,miles doesm`t know how to play a complete game,he`s a shooter,that`s it,bad thing is he`s not even that good a shooter

sloan wannabe

Start Korver. Let Miles play with the second unit when they come in to run. Boozer opens up set shots for Korver and Okur so they shoot a higher percentage.

Change the starting 5

With Boozer back Korver should be the one to start...
CJ has done nothing to earn his starting spot....Sloan just gave it to him to see if he would play harder!
CJ has had some good games, but he has alot to learn about being a smart player! Mostly CJ stands around and thinks "look at me guys, see how cool I am!!!"
Korver is a much better all around player and much smarter on the floor! He knows what to do even if his shots aren't falling. The experiment is over Sloan...put CJ on the 2nd team where he belongs.
Korver plays his heart out every night! He is a team player! We need him in the starting line up! He has earned it!!!


comma man you have outdone yourself today. Did your Mom help you come up with some new names: houdini,miles is terrible,sloan wannabe, change the starting five. Must be nice having some to cook for you. CJ deserves to be starting. When Korver starts showing up against the good teams then he can start. So far a no-show in games that are close. What is Korver's shooting percentage this month? Not good

A Korver Fan

To Miles: What makes you think comma man has to find different names to post? There are many other people out here in cyber land that believe Korver is the better choice for a starter. Sorry to break it to you but your man Miles needs an attitude adjustment and some more time on the bench. And no this is not a post from Comma man or any one of the possible names that you are suggesting. Get over it Korver is a popular player because he knows how to play the game!


I'm glad Matt Harpring wasn't injured in his fall even though he banged his head on the floor hard, he popped back up angry and ready to fight. Thanks to Korver it didn't happen.
I think Kyle Korver should be a starter and C. J. Miles should come off the bench. Kyle is a much better defender and is real fast with short jump shots. I have nothing against C.J., I like the young man a lot, I just think he sometimes doesn't take games seriously enough.
Also, IF Boozer goes somewhere else next season, let him go, maybe the Jazz can deal for a big man who is really focused on DEFENSE.


Back at full strength the Jazz have got a sick bench with AK, Millsap, Harpring, Korver and Price/Knight running the point while D-Will takes a breather. GO JAZZ!!


you guys are so stupid -
Korver did good the other night - and even when he doesn't shoot well he still is active on defense, and getting rebounds. BUT TO BASH on miles is just as stupid as bashing on Boozer for not being more like millsap. THEY ARE BOTH GOOD - AND THEY BOTH ADD TO OUR TEAM ON BOTH SIDES OF THE COURT. KORVER GETS REBOUNDS. MILES MAKES KOBE LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT. MILES HAS A BETTER SHOOTING PERCENTAGE - KORVER HAS MORE BLOCKS.



To: A Korver Fan: Do you even watch basketball?

Kyle Korver whether he is 6'7 or closer to what appears to be 6'5 he is a vital, and i mean a vital part of how this team does. SOmeone should run a stat when he scores 8 or more, what the Jazz record has been since he got here-lets stick with what is working, if Cj stinks, then replace him until he does not, it is that simple.
