Wow. That was just . . . ugly.

Tonight proved that Gordon Hayward is the heart and soul of this Jazz team. Without him, they are a mess.

A lot of green seats in the arena tonight and also Tuesday against OKC. I love it.

You know you're bad when you lose to the Cleveland Cavs, LOL.

Injuries are no excuse as well. Kobe, Paul, Westbrook, Lopez, Rose, Rondo, Horford, are all injured and they are either the best or second best on their teams. And yet, all their teams are better than the Jazz.

At this stage of development, it is actually good for Hayward to sit out. He finally is playing at a high rate. You have to see as a coach what the other pieces of the puzzle look like.

The Clippers and Thunder are better than most NBA teams. The Fakers,Nets,Bulls and Celtics are not better than the Jazz. The Jazz are a lot better now than they were at the start of the season. They didn't have a god game last night but even without Hayward I know they would beat Cleveland most of the time. Nice hearing from you though whenever the Jazz lose because you go totally dark when things are not going your way. The last few years at the start of the season you're all about how bad the Jazz are and that they will be in Seattle soon. Then the Jazz would keep beating your beloved Blazers and you are mysteriously absent for the rest of the season. So make hay while the sun shines!

I dont know what part of "The Jazz are tanking" you dont understand yet. Tanking was the goal before the season even began. Every fan wants the Jazz to lose this year. This die hard jazzfan wants them to go winless the rest of the way. Gordon Hayward is not the superstar you say he is. Thats who they're tanking for. I hope Hayward is out for a month. So would tanking qualify as an excuse?

Took the night off. Is it the draft? We are constantly looking at the draft. What boring basketball without hayward and we are talking about trading him? Boring.

So sorry the Jazz didn't play extra hard to make up for Hayward being out. They have to realize that any night any one of them can be out and they have to play accordingly. They can do it if they try hard enough. They have to realize that there will be a lot of teams going after Hayward next year and we may not have enough money to keep him. We can do it but not without a great effort from everyone.

Don't worry Grandmajazz, the Jazz have plenty of money to keep Hayward if they so desire. Once Jefferson, Beidrens and Williams and Rush depart they are close to 28 million under the minimum payroll and 40+ million under the salary cap. They have plenty of cash to sign Hayward and a max money free agent.
