Too bad the Jazz aren't as quick to help one another on defense, when the game is still within reach of winning. During those times, layup after layup, open 3 pointer after open 3 pointer, put back after put back, are given up with no Jazz member willing to help out a teammate then.

As usual, the Jazz will win most of their games at home, lose most of their games on the road, and then barely squeak into the playoffs, get eliminated in the first round, but then spend the entire off-season hyping how good they'll be, next year. I guess we now have some idea what a Cub fan goes through.

The whole Jazz team is soft. I loved watching Mo Williams mix it up there at the end while Hayward & Favors stood there and watched. Al Jefferson made a token soft run in at the end just to make it look like he actually cared. Paul Milsap was on the bench because he wasn't interested in guarding anyone last night so he couldn't help. The only thing we heard in the first few games from Bolarjack was how this team is so close and how they have bonded. Too bad playing basketball isn't one of the things that this team likes to do together.

Rather than hearing the team give high marks to Mo, for his tough minded and team first attitude. I would rather see the team actually try to become a little more "like" Mo and maybe even a little more like Marc-(ie--actually show some interest when someone is about to breeze by you to the hoop). Help each other out on D. You know--things that Jazz teams liked to do under Coach Sloan. I'm not saying a three game losing streak signals time to give up, but it has exposed this team as soft. Some individuals show toughness--but as a team, they show no ability to stop easy layins, or do much more than stare at each other when it happens. I don't mind watching a losing Jazz team, but it is unthinkable to watch a Jazz team that is not tough minded and won't hit the floor and scramble, or fold up into a "don't hurt me" position when teams get tough with them on the road.
