    What an enigma! The Jazz rave on about the offensive abilities of Trey Burke and Enes Kanter. Both excel when the Jazz have the ball....BUT....Their defense is just about as bad as their offense is good...Defense is coachable....C'mon coach...Teach them!! That's what they pay you to do.
    Another point which is certain....The Jazz offense turns into a one on one, playground game when Hayward is not on the floor....It happened Wednesday night against Brooklyn, and it happened again last night against Portland. If they are going to pull Hayward, do it at halftime. Let someone else play the first 6-8 minutes of the second half. They need Hayward on the floor the last 15-18 minutes of a game...If they had a coach who read any column on the box score other than total points, he would be.
