Just a great victory for Nawlin's, Now how many games had they one before
lastnight?.... Let's go OKC!
Jazz seem to need a team leader on the floor, one with some fire and who plays
with a flair for excellence...I guess its easy to say that, but they seem like a
dull, blunted knife as opposed to a sharp, pointed one. Young
players seem to hesitate to step up, like Gordon, Derrick, Alex. Show 'em some
tape of "Linsanity" and turn 'em loose!
You are all missing the point of why the Jazz lost last night. Free Throws down
the stretch. Burkes missed em, Kanter missed them. This is the Pros. Make the
easy shot.Please trade CJ and Harris. They both do not fit in the
Jerry Jr. offensive. Jerry Jr offense clogs the middle with bigs and does not
allow for the guards to penetrate. CJ and Harris need to attack the basket to
be effective. You can't do that with Jerry Jr. style of offense. Sloan was in
Utah 22 years, name a slasher that played for him? You can't. Jerry was all
about clogging the lane with the bigs and so is Jerry Jr.
In defense of Millsap, he played his guts out the night before and looked wore
out. Corbin lost this one! He had that many players at his disposal and couldn't
take advantage of a team that had two ten day contract players to suit up to
make nine for the game. The second unit came in and held the game close in that
first half, they didn't get going until the forth. I agree that C J and Harris
need to go! Howard would and should work his way back to the all star he was
before sitting out a year and a half. He is way to proven of a player to just
let go! The problem with the Jazz and some of these guys are the
plays they run. You can't expect any of them to develop if they run ninety
percent of the offense through one guy. This offense is the same Stockton to
Malone that we've seen for years. Except our new Malone, (AJ) doesn't kick the
ball out to anyone. Bell was hot last night, missed one shot and then sat out
for two quarters. Even when he was in, Jefferson or Harris held the ball until
the offense broke down, and anyone that was hot, had to throw up a garbage shot.
I watched Hayward, Bell and Howard sit at open wing positions waiting for a
quick pass before the defense was set. Harris and Jefferson do not pass the
ball, and if they try, it's after they are completely handcuffed. You see Howard, Bell, Millsap, and just about any of the others stop in there
tracks when Harris or Jefferson or C J have the ball, because they are going to
shoot it, never pass it! You hear Corbin yelling move move move to the offense,
but the ball stops with those three! Corbin has to decide if he is
going to let AJ shoot twenty times a night, or Millsap? They both can't if they
are on the floor together. If Jefferson is shooting twenty, then Haywards going
to shoot five. They need a ball motion offense that gives everyone an open look.
Not a throw it into the post and everyone move away to create space, hang out
and watch the double or triple team collapse on Jefferson of Millsap. You really
can't expect Hayward, Bell and or Howard to see their potential if they are only
in there to set screens for Jefferson. C J on the other hand, keeps the rock and
try's the one on one approach. He just watches on defense, and will not set
picks inside. Corbin's inexperience is starting to show. When is
doubt he falls back on the old Jerry play book. We really don't need new guards
because this offense will not support any kind of outside look. Our guards need
to be linebackers that set screens for our low post, Inside to Inside to Inside
to Inside game.
Oh if only KOC and Miller hadn't pushed Sloan out the door he'd have this group
playing great basketball.Harris needs to be shown the door, and every
minute CJ Miles plays is another reason to get rid of Corbin. Miles doesn't
care about anything but taking shots, he doesn't even care if they go in as long
as he gets his shots. His defense is pathetic. We could trade Harris and Miles
and even if all we get in return is free partking at the opponents arena it's a
good trade.It's time for a change, how hard is that to see KOC? Of course
KOC is still angry that his lies have been exposed and is pouting in a corner
Simply unforgivable.Yet I will forgive them IF they pull off a
miracle win in OKC tonight . . . .
The starters came out and played good, then the 2nd unit came in and stunk up
the joint in the last of the 1st quarter and start of 2nd. When the starters
came back it was total disaster until the last of the 3rd quarter and in the
4th. It's just terrible the effort given at times by veteran players. A tweak is
needed by the trade deadline or we will be singing this same song until seasons
end I think. I've seen enough of Miles, Harris and Howard, Get them gone
Ty,through trades,and the exception you hold. Big Al does light it up, but isn't
it funny he has never been on a winner? No defense and being a "blach
hole" maybe has something to do with this. Roll a few heads Jazz and try to
get better now better than later because quite frankly you are not going to make
the playoffs this year anyway.
We have seen more than enough of Harris to know he is not working out. He is a
point guard who doesn't know how to play his position. It's Tinsley thirty
already. Scrap the Harris project and throw him in on a trade. Go with Tinsley
and Watson at the point and make developing our young guns the top priority. The
wins will come later but for now development of our young talent is crucial.
Favors, Kanter, Burks, Watson, Hayward: erased all but 3 points of a 17 point
deficit. Shouldn't that tell everyone something? They played in crunch time
against quality opposition. The Jazz have to throw the ballast over the side or
the Titanic sinks. They can win with the second line players. They just have to
get more subs. Obviously, the starters have to go. Corbin feels that he can
motivate the stars. He can't. He has Secretariat and Man-a-War sitting on the
bench. Go with the thourghbreds even if they are yearlings. Send the over the
hill group to where they send retired racehorses where they can eat all day. You
have big time horses to pull the firewagon and you are using ones that should go
to the glue factory.
Get rid of Turnover Harris.Burks did a great job trying to salvage
the game.Too bad the young players are getting the Sloan treatment.
HOOOOOW embarrrrraassssssing!!!Go Jazzboys!! (I still love you, but
you are breaking my heart and driving me craaaaazy!!)
They lost to the under manned Knicks and they lost to the pitiful Hornets....the
way things are going they'll probably get lost coming home.
Who does one blame for such poor and inconsistant play? The players, the coach,
the owners! Its really sad and getting very difficult to watch such a sad
caliber of basketball.
Al Jefferson seems to be the spokesman for everything that goes wrong, after a
latest debacle that I picked would happened beforehand. AL look in the mirror. I
projected NO to win 99-92 because still did not trust out maturity or our Coach,
who is a soft nice guy. Corbin to me will never be able take the Jazz to the
promised land. He has held back our young players. It was nice to see the
young guys finishing the game and it was great. At this point I would rather
see an energetic Burks make 5 mistakes and play with his energy and skill.
Certainly over stale bread Devin Harris. Josh and Paul and AL looked like old
men getting out of bed today after a long night out. In fairness to Paul, I do
not think he is healthy. Corbin, if course, will go right back to his starting
lineup tonight instead of sending a message. For me it is obvious. We have
good young talent here but if they do not play this season is a total waste.
Sure glad I did not watch this embarrasing travesty where we lost our
Professional status. Where was Coach Corbin when all this was going on. We need
some discipline Ty, discipline. When a team is falling apart the coach should be
too. Maybe you were, but unless these players are benched and punished for lack
of interest and performance the loss must be partly laid at your feet.Lets get a
no nonsense attitude and let the fans and players alike know that we do not
approve of this kind of dismal play.Who are the starters for Oklahoma? This is
going to be another nightmare loss if we do not get things pulled together.
