@Denver to Portland How was the Denver -Utah game the other night? Lots
of comments on here from you before the game, but not a single comment since.
lol Wow, it must have been awful losing to a team like the Jazz, but I am sure
that you found a moral victory in there somewhere. Definition of Denver=Only
team to fire a NBA Coach of the Year winner in the same months as he is given
the award. When was the last time that that team was not full of thugs and
actually got along? Even Andre Miller, a good guy; can't get along with the
coach that can't see the benefit of having him on the team.
Joel Embiid Jabari Parker or Julius Randle....Joel Embiid has loads of potential
some say a franchise C to build around....a sponge when it comes to
learning...and his willingness and desire to improve is good....Andrew Wiggins
is slowly drifting....but he will be available top 3-5...everyone is questioning
his commitment to basketball...Jabari...is an offensive stud...but not as good
defensively...Julius Randle...has a lower ceiling...but the most NBA
ready...Kanter needs to step up his game...there are a lot of improving young
big men in the NBA....and we have yet to see Nerlens Noel...who is working with
his current coach bret brown and former utah player Greg Foster on shooting
drills...and if their project worked...he'll be like a mini-KG...with more
Moral victory? Pish posh apple sauce I want a real victory!
This reminds me of the gold ole' days when all our trusty veterans like
Jefferson, Millsap, and Foye used to go down to San Antonio routinely and play
the Spurs competitively down to the wire every time.Bwah-ha-ha-ha!
Bwah-ha-ha-ha!All you whiners who wanted to keep all those high paid
veterans around so that we could be "competitive". Ya right.I hope your realize that since Trey Burke has been starting the Jazz have
almost the same winning % as they finished with last season!! The only
difference is our payroll is about $30 million less and we have young players
who are just beginning to understand what they are capable of which means there
is still tremendous upside and potential.This young crew (since Trey
Burke has started) is already winning at nearly a .500 clip which was not really
even in anyones realm of reality as far as expectations go.There
really is no way to dispute it. This team is ahead of schedule in terms of
development.Impressive how they did not quit last night. They are
learning better how to manage end-of-game situations which is crucial.
Denver to Portland will be going away for good when the Jazz get Jabari Parker.
Denver....Don't you have a team to watch, support, or drag in the mud? We
can take care of our team, you take care of yours. You can't help
wondering what would have been if Hayward could have played. Well, enough of
the what ifs and on to the next game. I agree with Americanvet and think this
year is going as expected or maybe better. Let's go Jazz on Friday!!!
Young players looked good but Spurs starters sit about half the game. Williams a
no show and Jefferson not much. Favors on and off. It was a winnable game, Spurs
a bit flat but it is hard to beat your own coach and the other team too.
I've been enjoying watching this Jazz team despite the sub .500 record.
Seeing the improvement, and knowing what it is they are trying to accomplish,
makes for some real interest. This game had an exciting ending and made for a
great evening of tv watching.
No excitement just "slow and steady". This was game 40. It's
still all about "research and development". With about 20 games left, it
will be time to fly and get ready for next year. You have to stick to the plan,
The Jazz are leading the entire NBA with the most moral victories
This was an impressive effort by the Jazz. Jefferson had a few points but
Williams didn't score so this was really the Jazz youth movement in action,
minus Haward. I just see this team getting better.
NBA games are so long, the players so skilled, that a 14 point lead is never
enough...wonder if the Jazz could have stayed within single digit deficit, then
rally at the end when the Spurs, older and seemingly with less stamina nowadays,
then at the end of games is when to get them...if you don't fall behind too
far to catch up.
definition of the Utah Jazz--always living in the past (see the Malone &
Stockton era), and hoping in a future that doesn't exist, LOL.
Dear Denver - Don't you have anything better to do with your time? You are
always the first one to comment on these Jazz stories.Why so much
hate towards the Jazz anyway?
Yay for the youth movement!! Yay for moral victories!! LOLThis is
actually a win, right Jazz 'fans'? Shame on the Spurs for
giving the Jazz false hope and making them think they're only the second
worst team in the west, LOL. #moralvictories #kansascityjazz
