@Jazz Sourcei for one has no problem...for the young guys
playing...if they lose..they lose...its a learning process...this is the first
time...these young guys...get huge minutes...and losing is part of learning...do
you think if we go to the playoffs...we get a chance of winning a championship?
right now? i dont think so...and i am sure...that if we did get to the
playoffs...its an early first round exit...so i'd rather commit to the
young guys...have them develop chemistry...four of them playing a ton of
minutes...these should have been done a year ago...for Hayward and Favors...and
now for the four...if you are content with a mediocre 8th seed team that is an
automatic first round exit...then be my guest...
That Hayward turnover was the nail in the coffin.The fans have been
screaming for the young guys to play...and now they are getting more and more
minutes and I believe now the Jazz are losers of 5 of the last 6. Wow.Young guys are learning what it means to execute down the stretch. The margin
for error, even against a poor team, is small in the NBA.Its
unfortunate but the Jazz are really going into a tailspin here at the end of the
season. It is going to be like a car accident...you can't help but
look....but for all the wrong reasons.Hopefully they can find a real
star in the offseaason to complement these young guys. Clearly having Big Al
out has had a dramatic negative effect on the results. Really lacking a go-to
scorer when we have to have it.The young guys are making progress
and getting better but it is not going to be enough to avert this end of season
disaster when the Lakers pass us next week for the final playoff spot.Here comes the lottery.
Jazz gotta find a closer out of the 'Core 4'. If they let Jefferson
go, then somebody has to step up and fill in for his late-game consistency on
offense. The coaches obviously want Hayward to do it, but going 1-on-1 is the
worst part of his game. Maybe Burks should be taking those late game shots..?
only problem with millsap is he dident get enough shots .10 shots i think mo had
17 shots half of the team had way too many shots. mostly out of control shots.
had nothing to do with favors kanter or millsap. gordon out of control mo out of
control = lose everybody been hollering all year to play the young ones well
you got it so don't be surprised at the result's in a couple of years
they will be vet's and maby start winning. but probly not
Done and done.Stick a fork in 'em.
As most always, you summed up this game well Rhett. I would only
add...eventually, if not this year, then next, Favors and Kanter must play
together. If this means without Millsap starting or without Millsap finishing,
or without Millsap at all, the Long Ranger and Tonto must ride together. Notice
that I didn't mention Jefferson. Go Jazz!!
Lakers are surging while the Jazz are choking.
