Where is the emotion and passion? Not one player is playing with any desire in this game. Pathetic for a season opener!!

West Jordan, UT

This is truly ugly.

Thank goodness they only have to play 66 games this season instead of the usual 82.


Ivins, UT

Do we have a game plan? All I see are Jazz players tossing the ball around until the shot clock ticks down and then we force up a bad shot. I'm not expecting greatness early in the season but we at least need to run some plays. I'm hard pressed to see any bright spots in this game but I still expect to see this team get better later in the year.

Morgan, UT

The Jazz lack leadership...they lack organization...they are lost...they lack desire...they lack coaching...the jazz lack...lack and lack.

However, they do not lack being embarrassed...they young bucks are being taken to the woodshed by veterans that know how to play...

Is the season over yet?

Do we still own our first round pick this year?

Millsap clearly should start. I like Favors but he hasn't proven himself when it really matters. In fact, Millsap may be the only reliable player right now. START MILLSAP!

Murray, UT

Can't wait for draft night.
Jazz should get 2 lotto picks if GS pick falls.

Jazz have no outside shooting. Harris seemed like the best outside shooter, and he was even terrible.

Miles 1-7
Big Al 2-16

J. Evans scored as much as Big Al in a fraction of the time

CJ Miles
Dallas, TX

Jerry Jr at his best. Down 10 at halftime. Comes out with same lame, no passion starters who in the next 8 minutes turn it into a 27 point blowout and Jerry Jr. hasn't called a timeout or made one substitution. Nice coaching.. Al Jefferson is horrible for any team. No defense, no anything. I like Favors. Hayward, Bell and Harris can not score. The movement was horrible with them on the floor.

Raja Bell, Al Jefferson, C J Miles, Devin Harris, Tyrone Corbin? Some big questions going forward with this rebuilding project.

Too funny.

Lakers lose to the Sacramento Kings last night...

Portland destroys Sac Town by 22 tonight! HAHAHA

Jazz are terrible, I say save the Jazz fans grief, time and money and just move the team to either Seattle or Kansas City already. Hahaha

What an embarassment to be a Jazz fan and watch the jazz on TNT and get worked like they did! Too funny, hahaha

This is going to be a looooooooooong season for the Jazz. hahahaha

Ya know its sad and bad when your best player starts on the bench, hahahaha.

Don't look now, but here come the Nuggets, they just beat the Mavericks.

1. OKC
2. Spurs
3. Clippers
4. Lakers
5. Blazers
6. Memphis
7. Mavericks (they look terrible)
8. Denver
9. New Orleans
10. Timberwolves
11. Houston
12. Phoenix

15. Jazz


Oh my goodness! What a performance. I wonder if they can get any worse! Pehaps we should not get our hopes up and think we might have anything to cheer about this year.

Bountiful, UT

And CJ can score? 1-7 or something? He needs to go. So do quite a few others.

Ivins, UT

We still have college ball. Tonight was the most boring Jazz game I have ever seen. What a downer for the fans. What have we done to end up like this? I will find something else to watch for a while awaiting better news. Watching a game like this leaves me depressed.

CJ Miles
Dallas, TX

Harris is a joke at this point in his career. Until Jefferson and Harris are traded, the Jazz will not be a playoff team. And stop the Burkes talk. He is not going to help this team win games.

Bell is not an NBA caliber player at this point in his career. cut him. Stop wasting valuable minutes on him.

CJ may have shot bad but his misses were all inside the rim. Most of the team flat out shot bricks. His shots at least had a chance to go in.

Provo, UT

Losing to the 0-2 Lakers who are playing their third game in three nights can't be good right?

West Jordan, Utah

I have gotten myself into the mode of looking forward to watching the young talent develop this season. That said, give effort please.

I don't have illusions of grandeur this year. The losses will be many. Look for the Jazz to win 28 games. It's not the loss tonight that bothers me. It's the lack of intensity and being out hustled by an old team (Lakers) on the third leg of a back to back to back set.

Come on Jazz.

John Wicks
Salt Lake City, UT

Raja Bell is not an NBA starter. He is washed up. Burks should start. Hayward is no starter either. CJ still has no desire or ability. This team is way in over its head. I doubt if Corbin has any clue either.

Tokyo, Japan

if we go on a losing record this year...i hope its good bye corbin...the coaching staff he put up...aint going nowhere...and i think KOC should start rebuilding...i mean..come on...missed shots are something they can control...they should have adjusted...Howard should have started...Bell should accept the fact that He will be just a mentor for this team...nothing more...CJ..well...CJ usual self...but he included Free throws to his inconsistencies tonight...the young guns are still quite raw...and taking a beating like this must be a shot to their confidence...this will be a test for each and every young guy on that roster...how will they bounce back from a very horrible first game....

Temecula, CA

Lakers had backs to wall being 0-2, and they were at home...but still, how sad the Jazz shooting was. Jefferson saying he started to press after missing a few, started putting up too many jumpers...doesn't sound like a positive veteran's reaction to me. The Jazz should put in Jeremy Evans, more, for one thing. CJ seemed to be lost on defense too often, Hayward seemed to be one person who was moving without the ball pretty well. Time to rebound tonight.

Small market and low man on the NBA roster, Utah Jazz glory days are over!
