I know that Raja Bell is in the proverbial dog house, but the Jazz could have
used his toughness on Sunday. Maybe he has older legs and has been injured to
boot, but he is a better defensive player than Harris or Howard was Sunday. If I
was Coach Corbin, I would be willing to try anything to get a win against the
Let's go Spurrs.
This is not rocket science Corbin. To even have a scintilla of a chance you
have to play Favors more than 26 minutes.Duh!2nd they
need to go under the screen (defend as well as possible) and make Parker shoot
3's.You have to pick your poison but letting Parker get in the
paint and leaving Favors on the bench is double dumb.Not sure if it
will get a win or not but you have to go with the odds and Parker farther from
the hoop is better odds. Favors guarding the rim is even better.Do
Play Raja or play Favors or just change the deck chairs on the Titantic.Jazz need to perform as a team and as a team they got a huge dose of
intimidation last game. Next game will tell the mettle of the team.
If Corbin goes with the same lineup for game 2, he should expect the same
results. Start with your big 3. In game 1, the Spurs scored 48 points within 5
feet of the basket. They need a stronger presence inside, which starting Favors
will give them.
