Basketball does not belong in cities like New Orleans at the NBA level. 10,000 in attendance? Pathetic. Pathetic team too. That game was a yawner and I only watched cause I love the Jazz.

Where are all the comments at these days? No one is posting anything this season.

I think many Jazz fans are disappointed with the minutes Favors is not getting. Especially with the poor defense we have seen from Corbins starters. Well at least we got the win. Go Jazz.

The Jazz team's two chief weaknesses:

Defense: The opponents are getting too many layups. New Orleans had five layups in a row in the first quarter. Jefferson makes made decisions as to when to leave his man.

Offense: The ball still stops too long with Jefferson while everybody else stands around. Al has improved, but the Jazz need more movement on offense. If Al shot a higher percentage, I could possibly tolerate Jefferson's 1-on-1 and 1-on-2 moves, but he too often settles for an off-balance shot or low percentage jump hook or push shot. When Jefferson is dribbling, other players should set picks for each other and cut hard to the basket.

The spacing was better last night, at least for part of the game. Millsap has little room to work when Jefferson stands around when he doesn't have the ball. I agree they all need to run "through their routs better" Set hard screens and clear out of the middle, so they all have more room to pass and shoot. Mo will be a determent to the team if he rides the pine all year with minor injuries.

Last night proved again that the combination of Kanter, Favors, Carroll, and Watson shuts down other offenses. The Hornets went almost eight minutes against them and didn't even get a good look at the hoop. The minute Jefferson came back, they went right to the rim with little resistance. Millsap, Favors, and Kanter all get in foul trouble when he is on the floor with them. His good footwork and scoring ability is not covering what he is costing the Jazz in all other facets of the game.

The Jazz need more discipline. That should come with good coaching and experience. The only 'early" offense should be a breakaway layup, otherwise make the other team work for 20 seconds on defense. Sloan taught that and it will wear the other team down. Corbin has the players to do it. He finally wised up and started playing Carrol. He needs to do the same with Burks and Evans.

"Ho Hum" first half, that is an understatement. At the half, all five starters showed negative numbers while the 5 "reserves" showed all positive numbers. Hopefully Corbin got in some peoples faces at half time.
