How about some comments about absolutely horrendous job of coaching by Corbin -- what happened to DeMarre? Why isn't subbing in for guys when they are playing so poorly? Why does he call timeout and the next play is a 3-point heave by Mo with the clock running down. Does this guy have a clue about coaching?

Sadly, the wheels have officially fallen off. With free agency pending, it's clear the players are more concerned about their next contract elsewhere. There's probably more truth in Raja Bell's assessment of Coach Corbin than people give him credit.


DeMarre hasn't played well the past week. It doesn't matter who you stick into that starting lineup, with everyone setting screens for Jefferson to hold the ball in the post, then stand around until he forces something up. Jefferson cost them again clear through the game. Millsap was non existent because everything ran through AJ. The guards had to sag into the paint to keep guys from blowing by Jefferson, leaving the NY wings open. So the game plan was.. Drive the ball at Jefferson, or pick and roll him. If you get by him slam it down. If a guard rotates to help, dish it back outside for the open jumper. Jefferson didn't leave his feet or block out for a rebound until 2 minutes to go before half. I'm not a Corbin fan, but I doubt anyone could help these guys. Why has a big slow center like Jefferson already been traded twice? His game directly effects the rest of the team on both ends of the floor.

i agree with you that Big Al is a black hole on offense...and a liability on D...to be honest...i appreciate Carlos Boozer more...as he kicks out the ball much quicker...thus having a more efficient offense...but still...a good coach...wont force it that way...you want to be efficient...so if you want to score quickly...you better have an offensive set where in your players get the ball at the most optimum position...
