Jazz were up 100-92 with 2:46 left

Jazz were outscored 12-1 in the final 2:46 to lose 104-101.

Jazz are horrible in close games.

Time to make some moves to get a decent PG, and a new coach.

Hayward had a nice game and is progressing. Some day he may be a go to guy at the end of games. However, today is not that day.

STOP going to Hayward in the last minute of a game. He tries to do too much and turns the ball over more than he makes a play.

In fact, it is painful to watch him in the last minute of a game.

One of the very worst late game Jazz meltdowns I have ever seen. Wow!!

For most of the game, the Jazz played well, but without Big Al in the post to finish games, the Jazz have struggled: turnovers and excessive fouling doomed the Jazzmen. The Jazz are in a real conundrum; they need Al's offense in a big way but also need to play their young bigs.

I'd like to see Utah keep Al but not at the max-price which seems to be what he'll seek and probably get. The brass will probably keep Millsap and do a sign and trade for Jefferson. Tough times ahead: bounced in the first round, growing pains with the young guys, and a continuing search for the franchise PG they traded away. Well, at least Corbin finally benched Williams who has snoozed through most of the season.

How about a time-out when jazz are only up 1?? It looks like jazz will waste a season. I am so scared that kanter will play 5 min again when Al J comes back... Kanter was owning everyone and goes to bench. wow just wow

Kobe makes a claim that they will make the playoffs. At that point they were several games below 500. In order for the Lakers to make the playoffs, two things needed to happen. They (the Lakers) needed to have a steller end of season and one of the teams already in the plaoyff hunt needs to drop off. Leave it to the consistently inconsistent Jazz to make Kobe's claim a reality, and so quickly. I am so tired of this team. The Jazz and Lakers will change spots in the playoff hunt. I really thought dumping my thoughts would make it all better. Didnt work!

Just my thoughts

This was the second horrific loss this week and then the Lakers come back from 25 down to win by 6 (20-0 run to finish the game) at N.O. NBA draft lottery here we come.

I am really tired of watching the Jazz lose! You only need to watch the last 5 or so minutes of any Jazz game and see them fall apart. I don't even want to watch any more, I am sure glad I don't have tickets any more, what a waste of good money. With all the talent we have we should be winning many more games. Need a new coach..sorry Corbin!!

It is the coach folks, it is the coaching. The right coach will know what to do with our talent.
