Good Job Jazz!
That was a fun game! There were glimpses of what the Jazz could become!
Hopefully they can pick up more wins like this as they develop!
I liked the energy they played with tonight, especially on defense. I also like
that Raja Bell didn't play a lot. I don't understand why Burks who scores 15 in
the 4th against the nuggets gets a DNP tonight. What does he have to do to get
playing time?Also I thought the offense looked a lot better tonight
and I think Jefferson being out actually helped. He is a such a black hole that
other players stop moving on offense when he has the ball. It was great to see
Harris play so aggressive tonight.I think the Jazz are getting close
to having the best starting lineup on the floor. Take out bell and move Hayward
to the 2, then add Howard or CJ at the 3 and I think we have a good starting
i guess...this proves it....Al Jefferson needs to go....
Good win. The Jazz battled back from a double digit deficit to win this game.
Philadelphia is an upstart team with some good players.- The Jazz
had good energy- Favors was a beast- Hayward hit the big
shot- Kanter had a couple nice shots- Devin Harris
looked much better- Earl Watson did a nice jobThe Jazz
still gave up a lot of easy buckets, but tightened things up, and did not fold
when the game went down the stretch. Nice win by our Jazz.By the
way, I love the Uniforms, they are sweet.
It's still too early to trade Al Jefferson, he WAS a black hole, and IS still
sometimes. But, he's played approx. 90% of his career on a bad team where he was
asked to create his own shot in the post. The Jazz were horrible the 2nd half of
last season. Derrick Favors will make us cheer and he'll also make us cry for
1-2 more seasons. We still need Al, has everyone already forgotten what he did
after the All-Star Game/D-Will trade last year? He's our best scorer on a team
that's struggling to score. He came back in shape and can run the floor with the
young guys, he can become a better passer when he's double-teamed, and if we
still want to trade him at the end of next season to make room for Favors or
Burks we'll get a lot for a 20 pt 10 reb 2 block Center. Heck, we may even get
an All-Star for an All-Star.
Aren't we like undefeated in the green jerseys? We should wear them all the
Two comments I agree with, Bell needs less minutes, even the minutes he got were
too many and took away from others who would could benifit from them, Bell needs
to sit. Second, Favors gets involved when Big Al is on the bench, but he stands
around closer to the perimiter when Big Al is in the game, he needs to be
coached to force his will and get down low even if Big Al is in the game
(opposite side). Love how Hayward plays, Howard is still struggling but
shows some improvement, CJ OK , Watson played well, Kanter will just get better
and better. This team will still struggle but watching the young kids play and
improve will be fun.
I didn't see the game, so I want to ask those who did.... Did we win because we
were playing as a team, or were we just getting the lucky bounces? Did the team
look like they had purpose on offense? How about defense? Was the offense
actually being run, or were we just playing an effective game of pick-up ball?
Were we making proper rotations on defense, or was the other team simply having
trouble hitting their shots? The stats look pretty good, but watching the
movement of our team usually tells a very different story.Still
wondering if Jefferson would not be more effective coming off the bench. We can
still give him plenty of minutes, but having a guy like that coming off the
bench could really disrupt the strategy of other teams.
Jefferson sat one game,we won(miracle) and he needs to go? WOW,the guy is
young,needs to learn to pass out of a double team,but needs to go...WOW,if
anyone needs to go it`s Bell (washed up) and miles(worthless lazy,flabby and way
Houdini I see you still are delusional. Jefferson is all that is wrong with
this team. He doesn't move his feet on defense. He holds the ball until the
defense can get set and he has no leadership skills. He never won in Minnesota
or Boston. He had all of last year to prove he can carry this team and yet to
help it at all.
