I would have liked to have seen more of Kanter. He was 3-3 for 6 pts. and 3 reb. in 12 mins. He had 0 fouls. I would liked to have seen him use up some of those fouls banging on Garnett for sure. I thought on this road trip that Ty didn't show alot of trust in the bench for the most part. They were really helping us on that 6 game winning streak and I thought there were times when we could have used there help more. Thats just my opinion of coarse.

Man Hayward is really starting to play some serious basketball. What a good selection by KOC. Go Jazz!

I agree with RUSS, Ty should've played the bench a little more with Favors Kanter, Burks, and Tinsley..

This game proves again that CJ MILES is very inconsitent....1/10 enuf aid.....I would love to see CJ replaced or given less minutes in favor of burks..

I also think Tinsley should be the first one of the bench at the PG spot. Watson is a fierce player but tinsley provides more smooth offense and the ability to score.

A little tweak in the lineup should do the trick, we cant be stubborn CORBIN, play the guys that will give us the best chance to win...

You guys beat me to it..Al had problems with Garnett and it got into his head with the lack of calls. The fact is this happens when you go against length as Boston Front Court gave the Jazz a rough time. They won the board battle. Despite showing nice heart and coming back from 18, Corbin made his share of errors yet again. One was going so long with Miles when Burks outplays him every time. Tinsley and Watson were supposed to split time. I guess not. Tins did nothing to lose the backup Point spot..Only Gordon outside of Burks and Favors and Kanter showed the energy. He also attacked the rim and defended. The Jazz went back to playing to slow of a tempo tonight playing much of the night to Boston 1.2 court defense strength. Did not make them work enough with ball movement. It was also unwise for Corbin to replace Gordon for Carroll that many minutes when Gordon was then our best player.

Yes Tinsley helps the scoring with the second unit alot. Tinsley creates opportunities for his team mates and gets them involed. He was at the helm during the 6 game winning streak and if it's truly about the playoffs, then Tinsley looks like the man to me to run the 2nd unit. Let's get back to winning! Go Jazz!

Let's just hope Golden State doesnt tank the season...we would need that lottery pick...and get us a starting PG or a scoring threat at the wing position...i think Devin Harris of old wont be coming back anymore...and we should really start trading players with value now...for players that would fit our system...Keep the young guys...Hayward, Favors, Burks, Kanter and Evans...and please...PLEASE...let them get major minutes...i mean...they would leave when their contract is up...it might be a wesley matthews episode all over again...for these players...because we seem to undervalue them...but i trust KOC to do his job...im just a bit worried..since these kids...are better than the vets we have right now...although Kanter is Raw...he will improve and he needs his 20-25 mins a game for that

Why do the Jazz let CJ travel with the team and suit up for road games?

DESNEWS- YOUR WEBPAGE IS TRASH. It freezes my machine every time I read the comments.
Oh, and how about a box score instead of your lame "instant analysis"?

I agree with Fresno and Todd.
Corbin botched these last two road games with his lineups.
Harris and CJ did nothing against Boston.

Boston showed that if you slow down Big Al and Millsap early, the Jazz flounder.
And that is easy to do since neither get any respect from the officials!

Have a "big" dose of reality Jazz fans. Truth is the Celtics toyed with this Jazz team like the Jazz toyed with the talentless Nets the night before. We have a loooong way to go before competing for an NBA title quite frankly We need more fire power on the wings, another big, and possibily another young PG, to go with our youth movement. Another year older Watson and Tinsley will soon show that age. Just give the young-uns more time coach because making the playoofs is remote this year and would be an early exit anyway. Look to the near future Ty.

I think it is the Parquet floor. It just hypnotizes the Jazz. Happens ever time they go to bean town.

@ Vince
I don't think it was really the Celtics "toyed" with the Jazz all night as you said. I think the Jazz were their own worst enemy by shooting outside shots too much (an haveing an off shooting night to boot), instead of going inside like the Jazz have been excelling at lately. The Jazz also missed too many free throws to be able to pull this game out. I do think the Jazz are on the way up and the Celtics are on the way down and overall the Jazz are the better team right now. This has also been a grueling stretch for the Jazz and they played like they were worn down a little. Also, I know Corbin has more knowledge in his little finger about coaching than I would ever know, but I do think he is making a mistake by not playing Tinsley instead of Watson

Big Al will never get the better of KG. Garnett is more basketball savvy. He will retire with a perfect record against Al. Too bad . . . I'd like to see Al master him just once.

I like the idea expressed above of giving Kanter more minutes just to bang on Garnett and get into his head. Instead, he gets into Al's head.

Jefferson with a very poor effort again. Needs to be traded. Not a good attitude.

I think some are right some wrong. The right there is no way that earl should be in front of Tinsly. And Burks should play most of CJ minutes. Can't stand Garnett, i wish big Al would hit him in the mouth. But he is to nice. Trade trade trade that is all some of u talk about. I like big Al does he have some defensive liabilites for sure but i say he is a top 5 center in this league. I only wish Ty would never take Favors off the floor he would be a 15 to 20 point scorer and i know he would get 20 rebounds.
