The Jazz will be out of the playoffs after this road trip.
Denver is probably out of reach unless they really fall apart and I doubt that
will happen. That said, the Jazz, Warriors, Rockets and Lakers then will be
fighting for the last 3 playoff spots. The Jazz do have the toughest schedule of
the 4 and they have not proven themselves on the road so it still looks like
they will either miss the playoffs, or possibly end up with the 7th or 8th seed
again. All of the 4 teams mentioned have shown that they can go on a losing
streak so anything can happen but I'm still feeling like even if the Jazz
slip into the playoffs it will be another quick exit at the hands of the Spurs
or Thunder. All the more reason to build for the future and start handing the
keys to the core 4 now, then use the cap space in the summer to build around
The comments by @John Wicks and @Americanvet are right on target.
Better play the healthy youth from the bench than the crippled starters. Give
them some more action and see what they can really do. We are building for the
future in doing this.
Would agree with John. Writers say if Jazz miss the playoffs Corbin is gone. If
Jazz can go 2-2 on this trip they might survive.
"We’ve actually weathered the storm. We haven’t moved up, but we
haven’t lost any ground," Corbin said. "Everybody's kind of
stayed in that same position they had before."What Corbin?You just had the softest home schedule you could possible dream of and
the best you could produce is the 7th seed?This road trip (combined
with the injuries) will spell doom for the Jazz playoff hopes. We are the
reason the Lakers will make the playoffs.It is about to get real
ugly real fast.Corbin made the playoffs last season and it appears,
barring unusual circumstances, that he will miss this season. That clearly
means he is not improving the team outcome. Everyone said the partial season
when Sloan left and the shortened lockout season was unfair to judge him on.
Well now is here and it ain't looking pretty.We will get a
lottery pick and a new coach probably. Lets not be naive though. Pretty tough
to win much in this league when you don't have a single talent on your team
that can sniff and allstar spot. That tells you most of what you need to know.
i say...miss the playoffs...but start the core 4...i'm tired of just being
good enough...or fighting for an 8th seed...develop the young guys..make them
have chemistry on the court...and in the offseason...lets try to get a coach
that gets it...that has vision...and that is willing to develop a young up and
coming team...we cant win now since we dont really attract
superstars...that's why we should build upon what we have...make them feel
at home...make them feel wanted...because once they feel that they could be
wanted more elsewhere....they'll leave...and when that happens...what now?
no more core of young players...and we would get...are some washed up
veterans...with a below average coach....
