Yes that was a horrible call and it killed us from there. It's amazing the
guy could call that, he knew with all the action below Hayward that he hung
there to protect himself there was no other way to interpret that play. It would
be nice if the NBA refs went on a strike like the NFL, the difference is I think
that we would find that referees that called the game like it supposed to be
called would be much better than what the NBA has. Getting sick of the star
treatment in the NBA!
Big Al was soft again last night. He wanted nothing to do with the rough stuff
going on down in the paint. So he hangs out on or near the perimeter and shoots
jump shots. Corbin just leaves him in and let's him continue. No wonder big
Al never gets to the free throw line, he's afraid of contact. We missed
Kanter last night even though he gets minimal minutes from Corbin. When Kanter
gets back Corbin needs to increase his minutes especially against physical teams
like Denver. Big Al is way too soft to compete down on the low block where big
men are supposed to play. Then there's Foye who does little else
besides shoot the ball. Last night he was cold as ice but still logged 26 min
while Hayward and Burks,( two players who do play defense) were alotted 19 andf
17. Burks was shooting well last night and should have had more of Foye mins. So
should have Hayward. I think Corbin has had plenty of time to see what he
can do. He is what he is and he's not head coaching material, not even
B Russ has it right. Ir is probably a coaching problem as well as a lack ofv
toughness and fight on the Jazz Team...which again points to coaching
relationships. We could stand some more tall guys with fight also...a commodity
that is hard to find. Watch out on Monday night.
Jazz will never be very good as long as Al Jefferson is on the team. All he
wants to do is shoot and refuses to play any defense!
Players are not the biggest problem...its the coach. With the right coach I
think the Jazz would do pretty darn good.
