Jazz latest team to rip the fans' hearts out.

The Jazz should be 3 and 0 on this road trip instead of 0 and 3. Overall the Jazz have played hard but turnovers are killing them.
I am a hard critic on Corbin and Marvin Williams but on this night to be fair I will give them both some credit. This was the best I've seen Marvin Williams play in a long time and if he could only do this consistently I would be thrilled. I'm pretty sure he will revert back to his inconsistent self but tonight he played well.

It would take a lot for me to believe Corbin is capable of being a decent head coach and I could nit pick a little about tonight's game but overall I thought he did ok. What I liked best is that he stuck with Favors through the end of the game and it gave Favors a chance to play well and give the Jazz a chance to win. I would have expected Corbin to go back to the veteran (Millsap) late in the game but he stuck with Favors so I'll give him some credit. Kanter also continues to impress.

Ahhh the Knicks is next....here we go again for another loss tonight! and further sliding down in the standings. The Jazz team could surely take a page from the Denver Nuggets. If you folks have noticed especially after the All-Star break the Jazz are playing mostly from behind with slow tempo and low energy. Time for a coaching change which should incorporate a fast pace attack tempo and high energy plays. If this doesn't happen.....same crappy result for next season Jazz fans!

The best part of the Journey would be a new coach and GM.

On March 20, after five more tough games, the Jazz make a three game swing of Texas. The team is on the edge of a precipice. If the players are playing well, as Jefferson is, then you need to look at the coach. Three "dagger" losses in a row are just too much of a coincidence.

When bad luck goes bad it stays there. As long as Watson/Tinsley play at all Jazz will lose..

You can't rip the heart out of a team that has no heart. I don't understand the Jazz and their typical lackluster play. They are not a fun team to watch night in and night out. Too often they just don't show up.

Rocky Balboa hits the three to win..... That sucked.

I like Hayward, but quit giving him the ball when the game is on the line. He trips, stumbles, loses the ball, or goes down the lane, tries to draw contact and jacks up some off balanced shot..... Enough already. Hayward is a nice player, can't get it done when we need it though!

As Dave Blackwell would have said, "The Jazz starting guards last night scored two more points than a dead guy..."

The problem with the Jazz is not the coach, it's with the front office. You cannot put players on the floor that are not competitive and expect to win. This goes back to last summer when we acquired players that no one else in the NBA would want. It's now becoming evident why they were so easily let go by their former teams. As long as the management is in a delusional state of mind about this, the longer the pain for the fans will go on.

@Jazzledazzle

you do know that some of the games that we won were also won by Hayward at the clutch?...so having a few games that he wasnt able to put off a shot...doesnt make him a viable option in the clutch...i won't compare him to the elite level clutch players...but...Jordan once said...that he made a lot of clutch shots...but missed a lot more...so...im not going to condemn him just yet...he is still young and he has proven himself throughout his basketball career that he can perform on clutch situations...both in his HS and College days..and a few NBA games as well...

Don't get me wrong, I like Hayward. He has had some great moments. Just over the last 2 weeks he has had the ball stolen twice. Once the Jazz got lucky and still won. He has stumbled or tripped at least 3 times the last 2 seasons. I like Hayward, just saying he is not the guy to go to for the last shot.
