The Spurs were "not exactly motivated". In fact, "Bleacher Report" had stated that they wanted to be the number two seed and avoid the hot Lakers with Kobe. Last year, the Jazz went through this with Golden State as they "tanked" in order to keep their first round draft choice. I don't see the Rockets being motivated for the final game when you know that the "stars will be out" and include Jack Nicholson and the bois. The Jazz are like "the team bus caught in deep mud" and a flash flood is on the way. You now have to get out the film of those one point losses on the road and see if there were any "shenanigans" that contributed to the losses.

Lakers win and the Jazz are out.

Jazz winning both road games? Lakers losing home games?

Right. See you next season.

Fortunately alot of these players will be free agents and they will go help some other team lose next season.

Between the coach and the veteran players, it is despicable this team is not in the playoffs this season.

Gutless players and a poor coach who couldn't produce a decent rotation if his life depended on it.

Corbin played Marvin Williams in the starting lineup for 3/4ths of the season despite zero contribution night after night which undoubtedly caused multiple losses.

We will miss the playoffs by a single game.

I wish Corbin was free agent along with some of those gutless veteran players.

Any combination of just 1 more Lakers win or 1 more Jazz loss and the Jazz will be cleaning out their lockers for the season. I wouldn't bet the house on the Jazz's chances right now. It tends to make a person look back on all those big leads we had in games that we ended up losing down the stretch during this past month or so. It's during those situations that coaching can make such a big difference. Just one or two more wins could've made all the difference as far as the playoffs are concerned.
I sincerely hope the Jazz brain-trust genuinely evaluates all possible options in being able to make us more competitive next season... with both players and coaches. We are on the cusp of great potential, with just a few changes.
