When 3 of your starters don't score a point, how can you win? And, this
isn't the first time this has happened this season. Watson isn't a
scorer, Foye seems to has lost his confidence, but Marvin Williams shut it down
weeks ago. It reminds me of Lamar Odom's play in Dallas last season. I
guess the only thing Williams is looking forward to is signing his player's
option for next season.
This is getting old. Al we hear is well have to see about what to do. You are
seing yourself out of the playoffs. Corbin needs to change what isnt working.
There is a bench for the nondoers.Be fair to yourself your players and the
fans. Quit playing age and play the players that produce. I enjoy the jazz and
wish them the best , This is why i quit buying season tickets 2 years ago. It
looks like the time they get home from the road trip they will be out of the
playoffs. LETS HOPE NOT
You can mark March 4th down as the day the Jazz lost any chance at keeping
Favors in Utah. 2 years has proven that Corbin is not a great coach, and
that he will never improve. Hiring tax-evaders doesn't exactly help his
credibility either. Fire Ty Corbin, before he runs this franchise
out of Utah.
Normally I don't attack Corbin, but here is my issue with him last
night:- Up 3 at the half, he waits until the Jazz are down double
digits and until about 4 1/2 mins left in third quarter to bring back the lineup
that got them the lead and all the momentum. - Why is Earl Watson
even playing let alone starting?- Enough with Marvin Williams
already, put Carrol out there and even throw Jeremy Evans a bone at least he
plays with some energy.- The Jazz in typical Jazz fashion had the
game won, but could not defend the 3 point line at the end of regulation or OT.
Why do opponents have such a field day from down town? You know the Bucks need a
3 pointer, yet you give them space to shoot. Chase them off the darn 3 point
line.I put this loss more on Corbin than the players. Generally
speaking I like Coach Corbin and think he has done a fine job, but last night
was ridiculous. Quit playing 3 players that don't score or contribute!
Foye normally does, just an off night. Watson and Williams OUT!
Normally I would chew on Corbin, but this one was lost at the foul line! Kanter
played very good defense and leaving him out there was one of the reasons they
caught up. The Jazz were killed by poor guard play! Normally it's Jefferson
that shuts down the Jazz offense and leaves the pick and roll wide open on
defense, but tonight it was poor defense on the perimeter, as well as missed
foul shots. I thought Hayward hid from the ball also.
The box score says it all.I have been sick of Watson going on 2
seasons now. Get rid of him.I too fear Favors is going to leave
when his contract is up. Apparently Corbin has a littleSloan in him . . .
keeping the young talent benched (ok, apart from Burks but we know he is gone
too when he can get a better contract).
Pitiful starting guard play last night- totally outclassed on both ends. When
they play this bad, we might as well give Murphy a chance to develop- he couldnt
have done much worse.
As a Rockets fan, thanks again guys.
Corbin should be fired today. If I ever see Watson and Williams start again I
will leave the arena. Foye has hit a brick wall lately. I've said all year
Burks should be starting and now you see why. Not playing Favors the last 20
minutes took the cake. Corbin can't even draw up a good play at the end to
get off a decent shot. Wake up Greg and fire your no nothing GM. This team is a
joke and a horrible disgrace to the fans.
Don't understand the move to keep favors on the bench during crunch time.
Millsap is recovering from an ankle sprain. You go with the hot hand. It should
have been Favors and Kanter down the stretch. To say the least, Corbin makes
some mysterious personnel decisions. Williams should no longer be starting.
Carroll should get the nod. It would appear that the big money players are being
dictated by upper management. There are two tough games ahead at the Bulls and
Bucks preceded by a toughening Cavalier squad. They may survive and make the
playoffs. Just take a look at the rough road schedule that is the Lakers.
Watson is terrible. I have said this the last several games and so have many
others. I do not see how Corbin can play him let alone start him. He can't
score and turns the ball over constantly. That loses games. Give Burks the point
guard start. He is bigger, he can score, and defend. Come on Corbin, you have
many better options then Earl Watson.
Corbin is not an NBA caliber coach. The sooner he is gone the better. I hope
they send Watson and Williams with him when he goes.
I hate to beat a dead horse to death .... but as I've been saying for over
a year, Corbin is horrible. Did he really take Carroll out, and draw up a play
for Foye at the end of the game after scoring zero points and coming in cold off
the bench? Did he really not make virtually any substitutions in the fourth
quarter and OT? Did he really play Milsap 44 minutes (and the final 17 minutes)
in Milsap's first game back after spraining his ankle? No small wonder
Paul missed the three by a wide mile and only made one of two at the line in the
waning seconds of the game (no legs left). Could he really not have put Favors
in to rest Kanter or Milsap in the fourth quarter?He still refuses
to make defensive substitutions at the end of games when the game becomes a
possession by possession game (leaves Big Al in defensively). He waits way too
long to call timeouts to slow momentum. It's time to find a
real coach. Corbin isn't one and won't grow into being one.
I apologize if this is a duplicate message, my computer is in Marvin Williams
mode this morning (not working well). It's all been said here already.
I'll just add that I feel the problems start at the top. This team was
Larry Millers passion but only an after thought to Greg Miller.Marvin Williams and Watson are sucking the life out of the team with
Corbin's approval. Foye has been in a slump but I still think he has value.
I feel the rotation needs to include the following 10 players only:Point Guard - Mo Williams, BurksShooting guard - Hayward, Burks, FoyeSmall Forward - Carroll, Hayward, Millsap, EvansPower Forward - Kanter,
Favors, Millsap, JeffersonCenter - Favors, Jefferson, KanterThat's 10 players most of which can play 2 positions or more. My starting
preference would be Mo,Hayward,Carroll,Kanter and Favors with Burks off the
bench at either the 1 or 2 spot and then Foye,Evans,Millsap and Jefferson
helping at the 2,3,4 and 5 positions as needed. I really don't care though
who starts but the core 4 minutes need to be increasing.
I usually like giving a guy a chance when it comes to coaching, but what I saw
last night was too much to bare. I could have coached a win last
night….And I've coached a few killer church ball squads….. A
few glaring coaching mistakes lost the game last night - you have all revealed
them. Where is the sound coaching? Why don't they start Burks and Carol?
Being that they are very short handed, why don't they sign any other PG to
a 10 day contract? This to me would show that they are trying anything they can
to make the playoffs. I mean how in the heck do you sit a guy (Favor Flave) for
the last quarter and OT that has dominated the entire game??? The Jazz front
office and coaching do crazy things, they always have.... Last nights debacle
took the cake.
@Hugh G. HaterI dont want to start something that isnt there, but it
seems like everyone assumes Favors and Burks would leave, given the chance. And
I feel like there is this assumption that the african-american athletes dont
like Utah, or maybe even that they are more likely to leave for more money. I
dont know why Hugh G. Hater thinks Burks and Favors will leave, but I thought
that should be pointed out. I could see Kanter wanting to stay the
most--he's wanted to follow in Memo's steps for a long time and has
been a Jazz fan. But, in my opinion, Hayward would be the most likely to want to
leave--He's clearly an Indiana kid and no doubt would want to play back
@ Won 84Nothing better to do than troll the Jazz comment boards? Of
course Rocket fans are sick of getting beat in the post season by the Jazz, so I
understand your frustration with the Jazz organization. Sounds like
Stockton's 3 still hurts all these years later.....
I doubt anyone from the Jazz front office reads these comments (or would even
care what the fans think) but last night's game had to be the most
frustrating of the season! I kept saying to my husband "When are they going
to put Favors back in?" When it got down to less than 2 minutes in the 4th
quarter, I said "Is Favors hurt? Did he foul out? Why isn't he
playing?"Then unbelievably, he doesn't play in overtime
either!!!I put this loss squarely on Coach Corbin's shoulders.
I'm a girl and I could have coached that game better!
Sounds like the natives are getting a little testy. I, for one, am not too
surprised that Marvin Williams is a bust. And I thought that Foye was our
three-point solution. I guess the Clippers knew what they were doing when they
gladly gave him up. And by the way, since when did Earl Watson ever became a
go-to guy? The Jazz management must be licking their wounds when they realize
what a massive mistake they made bringing in the group they brought in this past
off-season. What is there, eight contracts that end this Summer? I wouldn't
re-sign any of them. Rookies, draft players, and D-league players would do
better than this lot.
Like i said...we have a below average coach...and we will be stuck in
Jazz Game = $150 for a pair of ticketsFood at the game = $35Watching Corbin get out coached time & time again = priceless
@millsapfanthat was funny...hahahahlet us all take this
chance..to thank Favors, Kanter, Hayward, Burks and Caroll...since they might be
leaving us once their contracts are up....
