I'm ok with the Jazz losing to try and improve our draft positioning. That said, I thought there was some real clock mismanagement at the end of the game that needs to be addressed. Also, if you were at the game and was booing Deron while he was on the floor after a blow to the head you could use some tact lessons. Hayward once again was struggling. At this point I'm glad the Jazz didn't overpay to sign him to a long term deal in the off season. We need that money to resign Burk and lock him up for the future.

When push came to shove the Nets walked away with the win. Experience prevailed tonight on the home floor. Coaching included. We failed to respnd early enough to cut ourt loss. What are coaches for?

This is so typical:
Center Enes Kanter filled in nicely with 18 points and 10 rebounds.
The media praising Kanter because he scored points and got a few rebounds, while totally ignoring the fact that Blatche came off the bench and put up 25 points because Kanter's defense stunk....A perimeter player would drive for the basket, and Kanter would leave Blatche to pick up the driver 8'-10' from the basket, leaving Blatche standing under the basket totally unattended...A few times, Hayward ran over and made an attempt to cover Blatche, but it was an impossible situation.
Point one: Kanter needs to meet these drivers AT THE BASKET, not 8'-10' out.
Point two: Harpring made the comment that Hayward needed to get over and cover Blatche sooner. Ridiculous! I would say the mistake was all Kanter's, were it not for the fact that he did it so many times...I have to think he was told to do it...Poor coaching...What's new?

Harpring thought the game was over in the third period. Kept saying how the league was for young people. He is about as useful as a rubber beak on a woodpecker. Time for him to go. As for Hayward he needs some time in the D league to work on his shooting or hopefully will get traded today. He is horrible.

I'm starting to see that Derrick Favors needs to be given much more credit for doing the grunt work on this team. They do not win when he is not in the lineup and they nearly blew it to Philly when he left the game early. Except for Jeremy Evan's leaping and blocking ability, and Rudy Goberts ability to alter one or two shots a game, we have no low post d presence without Favors in the lineup. Much as not having a real point guard cost us at the beginning of the season, not having a strong guy down below hurts us every time Derrick misses. Lets hope he's better soon and not injury prone.

Klinko is sorely missed even though he was highly overpaid. The "other guy" is not.

I think booing is so incredibly rude....with the exception of an obviously rotten foul call by the officials. (I confess that I've done it.) But to boo a guy when he is on the floor with potentially serious injuries is the epitome of tackiness and rudeness, I don't care who he is.

Always fun to see AK-47. Wish we could have won. Perhaps Gordon has the pre-wedding jitters???

Go Jazzboys on Friday....good luck!!!
