I don't understand why Corbin went with Watson tonight. Was it because he
is a better defender (guarding Williams) than Tinsley? Watson had 5 turnovers
and was -12 +/- in 18 minutes, not too great. Tinsley runs the team better and
is a better scorer. Hopefully this is a one time thing, Tinsley deserves to
play over Watson at the moment.
Tinsley entered the Atlanta game and could barely funtion. After seeing him
fumble the ball a few times Corbin benched him. There is talk that he and Big Al
hosted a bar party the night before. Apparently there is a problem, I hope not
but we'll see.
between yesterday's comments and the first two this morning it is apparent
that there are a lot of wannabe coaches. many blamed corbin for the 4OT loss. do
we blame him now for a blow out? here is a clue, get a job and a life. i suspect
corbin has a little more experience than you ward ballers.
I have been a big Earl Watson fan all season but after his recent comments
regarding "...its unfortunate this playing time issue happened after the
trade deadline" I have to say he has dropped in my opinion.Tinsley has proven to be a better shooter, is a better passer, and with few
exceptions run the team better.Earls comments are totally
unprofessional in this situation. Overall Tinsley is better. Sure he has an off
game (Atlanta) but overall I think most people are stunned that we have left a
guy with his ability sitting on the bench for this long.Watson was a
mess in Jersey and if he had not have been pulled along with the other young
guys the Nets would have turned us into road-kill plain and simple. Corbin had
to put the starters back in and it was a steady diet of Millsap and Jefferson
and Jersey was done.For those of you in favor of playing
rookies/young guys, we would ahve lost that game if Corbin would have stayed
with that lineup and not brought back the starters. Watson was doing absolutely
nothing resuting in poor possessions/shots.
The Nets did pull within three at 72-69 and the Jazz were on the ropes after
being ahead by 17. To their credit, they did not buckle and found their resolve.
"Sap" continues to be a fan favorite.
Stockton's 50? Darn, I'm getting old!This win validates
that the Jazz have turned a corner. Winning big on the road after a tiring
4-overtime game says something. Even if it was the Nets.Not sure
they'll have the energy in the next game. Maybe playing as many as Corbin
did might help. At least, Tinsley got some rest. That might be why Corbin played
Watson so much in the Nets game.The Jazz are now a legit playoff
team. No reason to not make it. The question is now how high can they rise?
Well it was the Nets! But a playoff team? I hardly doubt it.
Alec Burks came in quicker than anyone expected — along with Derrick
Favors and, surprise, Earl Watson — just over four minutes into the game
and finished with a sparkplug 15 points.Pine time makes everybody
play better. As for the starters saving the game, why wouldn't they? I
still think Evans should play some.Watson is the backup point guard.
An injury should not bench him. Let his play earn or lose the job.
Hey Ute alumni. My post has nothing to do with what you are griping about and no
I do not want to be a coach. I have a job and I have a good life. Good Day. Go Jazz!
@ Ute AlumniI'm just stating what I see, and I see Tinsley
playing better than Watson. I don't blame Corbin for the 4OT loss nor do I
think I would do a better job coaching. I was just curious as to why Tinsley
didn't get to play.
Tinsley is like 400 years old, and he had just played in a 4 OT game the night
before. i heard he came into the nets game with a walker. Watson was fresh! he
didn't play the night before. its not rocket science, its great that we
have this problem! We are going to want 2 solid backup PGs come playoff time. i
love what Both Tinsley and Watson bring to this team! they are both very smart
vets that bring energy. also has anyone noticed how much better this team is
without Josh Howard and Bell? Our young guys are legit. I ll take Burks, Hayward
and Carroll over both of them, I got so sick of watching bell stand on the 3
point line, and do NOTHING! he made no one around him better, and all he did was
try to act tough against Kobe. Hayward and CJ came in and shut Kobe (and also
Durant) down while keeping their mouths shut, and without a big show. HOW BOUT
THEM YOUNG GUNS?!?!
