    Good to see Hill back in action the last couple of games.

    Starters were excellent finding the open man, penetrating and setting others up. Defensive rotations were quic and with effort. When the secon unit came on the floor Withey was not able to move quickly enoug and with strength to affect the Pistons inside game. Too much Alex. Ingles and Dante kept the second unit from letting th Pisons in even more.

    I've said it many times....Hood is made of glass. He just can't stay on the court...very valuable offensively when he gets there but always has some type of issue that keeps him out of staying active for very many consecutive games.

    They better just bench him until that knee gets fully healthy (if that is possible with him) because they will need him in the playoffs...as long as he lasts.

    As rosy as things look right now (standings), including the Clippers inexplicable loss at home to the Bucks last night, I am still not sure whether the Jazz can maintain the 4 seed. The schedule is really stacked against them.

    All that said the Jazz have finally beaten a few .500+ teams lately so it should be interesting to see if they can hold on to their current playoff position. Given their lack of playoff experience, home court will mean alot to their chances of advancing.

    Clippers are playoff experienced and won't be an easy out for sure. Truthfully it would not be all bad if we dropped to the 6 seed and faced the Rockets. We match up better against them I think.
