The Jazz continue to show troubling signs of inconsistency. The Lakers put in their twin towers of Howard and Gosol and the Jazz swooned. This game needs to be looked at as a "watershed" mark. If the Jazz can't handle height with Jefferson and Millsap, then that would mean promoting Favors and Kanter to a starting role. There is also that lingering issue of that elusive point guard. Mo Williams is more than adequate. However, He will be gone for four more weeks and there is now wonder in what condition he will be when he gets back. Plan B would seem to be a good one. Dump Jefferson and Millsap for the cap room. If you get the ball to Foye, he will bury it. Against the Lakers and Jack Nicholson, there did not appear to be a viable strategy. Corbin at times appears lost. The evaluation of the team needs to go to the next level.

Ty Corbin is a bad coach. It really is that simple

Excellent, On the mark JBQ. Why does Jazz Management not see these things. Millsap in spite of his loyalty and occasional great play, is where he is, he has topped out. Same with Jefferson, they cazn't handle the bigs in the NBA. Focus on Favors and Kanter for the future wins and see how they develop. they show great promise with good playing time.

Corbin may not make the big time..look at the Lakers without Jackson, coaching problem has held them down this year. It was good to see them win so we can learn from that. Hoepfully the Jazz will utilize our bench players who I believe can outplay the starters. An friendly exibition game would be interesting to watch. I might buy a ticket for that one.

@ JBQ
The Jazz need to acquire a top-ten draft choice in the upcoming NBA draft to go for a point guard (if they decide not to start Alec Burks there next year) or for a small forward who can shoot to replace Paul Millsap. Jefferson should be replaced by another big who can play defense. The Golden State pick that the Jazz will acquire looks more and more like a non-lottery pick, and the Jazz should finish well out of the lottery as well. This means the Jazz have to do things right over the next month leading up to the trade deadline, or they might be left with no alternative next summer to dumping Millsap and Jefferson. This is not in Corbin's hands. Hang with the coach another month or two.

No thanks.
Big Al is flat out lazy,yet still gets his minutes no matter what. All while Kanter gets 8 or 10 minutes a night. Watson is pathetic in everyway yet still gets his minutes no matter what. All while Burks either sits or is misused. Last night Corbin had Foye guarding Kobe Bryant. If there is a worse coach out there than Corbin, I have'nt seen him yet.IMO

Alvin Gentry is free...i hope the brass are communicating with him...i'd trade Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson...as good as Paul is...and i hate saying this because Paul's been great...he is just a sixth man...a Carl Landry if you will...that is his ceiling...if Paul is as gifted as barkley...then i would start him...but he simply isnt...Al Jeff...with all those post moves that he has...he makes bad decisions...and a bad defender...if Milwaukee is dumb enough to give us Sanders and/or Ilyasova for Either of them...i'll bite on it...
