    If someone needs to be traded C.J. it's C.J., get it? 6 years and still inconsistent play along with poor decision making make him expendable!

    All that matters at the end of the season is how many games you won, not how you won them. Right now the Jazz are 7 - 3. Great place to be considering who they have played so far this year.

    Now they have to take care of business at home during this long stretch of home games. They need to win 10 of the next 14 games to move to 17 - 7.

    Trade Memo before he comes back.

    This unbelievable five game run with come-from-behind magic from the Jazz to me is almost as special as being champions of the NBA. I think this group of guys is fun to watch with an effort unmatched in several years. As a Jazz fan, this has been my favorite week in their entire history,dating back to the Pistol Pete Maravich days.

    Boxing out and rebounding have to be done better. Get off to a better start, push the tempo, stay with your man and don't give up easy transition points. OKC always has guys flying to the rim after they shoot the ball, and we get beat on the boards. Hustle and work hard on every play, fight for the ball! Al Jefferson needs to go up strong and dunk on some heads tonight! If you foul, make sure they feel the foul!


    LETS GO JAZZ!!!!

    I agree defense is the key and i think how Fes has been playing has been a major key to their come backs. Fes has been in when they start making their runs to come back. He may now contribute to much offensively but he allows the Jazz to outscore their opponent by clogging the middle and helping to create stops. He still has a lot of improving he needs to make but his influence on the game defensively helps make these kind of come backs possible. You can't make a come back with out making stops and Fes helps make that happen.
    The Jazz have made these comebacks and earned these wins without even playing all that good and I guess that would or should be considered a good thing, think how good they may be, if they get it together in the first half. Nobody has been shooting lights out, except maybe Milsap. CJ and Bell (or Hayward)surely haven't been shooting well.
    Hopefully they can start shooting better and especially from the start of the games and they could create some easy wins.

    I think Williams is the key here. In the first half he tries to get other players involved, but the other players dont get into it unless WILLIAMS is going offensively. He picks up his scoring in the second half and the team follows. He needs to play with the scoring mentality from the get go and the rest will fall into place.

    What was Jerry Sloan saying in the locker room during half time? I know he said "it was fun" - what, that is not him. Does he smiling during half time with his players? I don't mind if they do win again if they get behind during the half.

    Defense is the key. With Boozer gone, it's fun watching a team that loves to play defense. Millsap is coming into his own. We need our bench to produce a little more and we will be fine.

    What would these comments and team members be saying "IF" those wins were losses?
