I'm glad that most of the comments are supportive of this young team
instead of slamming them. I think (hope) most of the fans will be patient as
long as they can see motivation and effort and the willingness to learn from a
loss. Each game, win or lose, will bring something to the improvement of each
player, if he so observes and chooses, which I believe they all will. This
promises to be the most interesting/frustrating/ celebrating/testing season in a
long time. I hope as Jazz fans that we are on board with them for this ride.Go Jazzboys! Just wish tonight's game was on TV.
@ Hugh H. Hater ummm basically since the end of last season giving that they
made the playoffs the year before and barely missed it this past season... why?
How long have the Jazz been rebuilding now?
When Evans said he could do better I think he will work hard on it. Going
against a premier player is the best thing for him. Also looking at everybody
will make a finished product. Jazz always have a handful of point guards at camp
so I don't thing that is and message at all. It will take a good handful of
regular season games and then some to work out the kinks..
This is a pre-season game. The result means nothing at all. Utah beat Golden
State by 23 last game, in the regular season they will probably lose to golden
state by 23. It is foolish to judge a team off of a pre-season result. The
pre-season is not about winning and losing at all. It is about experimenting
and getting minutes for players.
With the knocks, come the bruises. I wonder how the early going troubles are
affecting Trey's psychic. I understand he only had 2 turnovers. Not bad at
all. The Jazz have loaded their roster with point guards, at least for camp, and
that sends the message that they are hedging their bet on Trey. Hope Trey does
well, but, if not, I hope a diamond in the rough turns up from the bench. First
hope, though, is for Trey. Hope he is resilient to the knocks on the court and
the understandable criticism off the court. Hope he digs down inside and
continues to believe in himself. He wasn't college's player of the
year for nothing.
Yup, I'm sure we will be up and down for awhile. The kids will get better,
we'll have exciting wins and some ugly losses but the youth will develop
and Jabari Parker could be waiting in the wings. I love Evans attitude that he
feels he let the team down by not getting any rebounds in 16 minutes. It looks
like he still hit 2 out of 3 of hijs shots. Bring on the Clippers!
I actually believe that this was a pretty good showing under the circumstances.
Kanter didn't play a lot because Corbin needs to see what else that he has.
I'm curious if his shoulder is 100%. Therefore, they need to go slow. The
Blazers are set while the Jazz are experimenting for the long haul. Exhibition
games are just exhibition games after all. The score could be 100-2 and it still
doesn't count. Cook from Illinois at one time was very good. I wonder
just what he has left and Corbin does also. You have to look at the "forest
and not the tress". Go Jazz!
I'm sorry but I think the Jazz are going to have a lot of "learning
experiences" as the season progresses. This will certainly be a rebuilding
year and result in a good lottery pick for next year. Unfortunately, last
year's first round pick (Trey Burke) is having a poor exhibition
season......much the same as his spring camp. But, we will come out of this
season with three or four good NBA players and a good base for coming years. We
just need to be a bit patient.
i think in general we would have games like this...and...i know its a bad
loss....but...this is the path we chose to take...and let's support
them...and let them know that we have their backs....win or lose....this is our
team...let's make them feel we want them here....and once they grow this
season...im sure this team would turn heads...
