    Great comments guys! Seems unaminous, Fes and C J needs to be on the floor more. Also Jefferson is not a fulltime center, his natural position is power forward. Fes and Elson need to be the centers.

    Ed it's no coincidence, there is a reason we win when Fes plays.

    Memo gets more rebounds than either of the two current front line guys....and that is from playing out 20 feet on offense. When he comes back and someone has to guard him, outside, whoever is playing the 4 position will get more rebounds. But I still like to see Fes on the floor.

    The difference in losing and winning seems to be with Fes and CJ. Millsap and Jefferson are not getting it done every night. Maybe the Jazz miss Memo more than I think they do?

    CJ did everything last night. Scored, rebounded, blocked shots, assists, steals. If Jerry would utilize him more on the offensive end, the Jazz would be awesome. CJ is only playing like 22 minutes a game and outscoring everyone on the team. He is a machine.

    Dwill needs to start shooting the ball better. He is bad right now.

    Due to Fes height & body mass, he will always be a difference maker in the paint, just like Eaton was over 20 years ago..As i've been saying since last year, the Jazz have enough offense. Any points from FES is gravy or cherry ontop of cake.When teams slide away from FES to help double team, that's when zip pass allows FES that easy dunk which has happened at times this year...FES NEEDS TO START GETTING 20 MINS. "EVERY NITE" TO GET HIM READY FOR PLAYOFFS.If jerry thinks he can stick FES in at playoff time (like last year) & expect a miracle, he's mistaken ! LET THE BIG KID PLAY !!!

    Reality check.

    Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are our front line.

    Game after game after game we get are getting decimated on the boards. These two guys are pathetic up front.

    Their guys push them under the rim and rebound over the top of them and too often they don't box out.

    Defensively neither of them could stop my mother. Millsap can help defend but one on one all the guys he plays basically shoot over him at will.

    This front line is NOT a long term solution. I hope Millsap gets the hook when Memo comes back. Putting Memo out there will not solve either of those problems but it might pull an opposing BIG outside so Jefferson has more room to work inside.

    Fesenko needs to get consistent enough to get more minutes.

    Our interior defense is a pathetic joke and sadly I don't see much prospect for it getting alot better. Millsap is simply too short.

    We may get away with this during the regular season but in a 7 game playoff series where you face the same guys night after night and the defense locks down we will get wasted.

    Get to work Fesenko!!!

    The Sacramento Kings (actually Queens) are a terrible team with Evans, the rookie of year from last year, that's all. Please don't bore me with defeating a team that is irrelevant in the league. Deron Williams dominates the ball too much late into the clock making it difficult for the other players to get off a decent shot. They seemed to be standing around watching Deron do his thing. Several times during the game the mustard came of Deron's hotdog with errant shots/plays. The Hornets(also a Nice Team) and the Lakers will be coming to town soon. It will be interesting to see 'what happen' as Karl Malone used to so eloquently say.

    Maybe it is just a coincidence. When Fes plays, the Jazz win.

    Coach should play with the line up. Start Miles and bring Bell off the bench. Maybe start Fesenko? I like the way Elson and Fes are playing the center position. Keep working hard! GO JAZZ!!

    Fes is a shot changer and is making himself felt and heard this season.

    Price may have found a place with Watson as he was struggling with being the designated pg backup.

    The team is struggling with rebounds. We thought it was Millsap who owned theboards who did the dirty work and AK would clean up all the unfinished shots but it seems Boozer had a way of placing himself in rebounds way. Boozer was never beat as bad as our current group, especially the way other teams whip us on the offensive rebounds.

    Jefferson is beginning to learn the offensive sets but he is not even in the same league as was Boozer when it comes to rebounds. AJ was supposed to be an animal on the boards, (somebody should have warned the Jazz about rabbits) but it is apparent the true animal averaged 20/10 every night. AJ has had a double double less than 25% of the games this season and as a result the Jazz are getting whipped on the boards.

    Captain. New Orleans will come back to the pack, they lost to the Clippers tonight. Maybe it was Johnson as to why Fes missed last 2 games. It matters little, what mattered is we played good team defense. Again, the 2nd unit extended the lead which was maintained. Elson tonight had a positive impace and even scored a bit. Watson is playing like Watson, he and Price play very well together. This is helping Price, Ron being the #2 is maybe one of the best moves the coaching staff has made.

    AJ was outstanding. He got ton of rest, we could never have gotten away with under Boozer Tenure. We are now MORE OF A TEAM. Others step up. DWIL does not need to be great every night on offense.

    CJ had another great game., A block, all types of Offense creativity and versatility.

    Fes had a huge impact. I do not recall one PAINT point while he was in the game that resulted in basket, maybe free throws.

    Love it when CJ plays well.
    Love to see Fes get more minutes, he makes a difference.
    Rebounding has been a problem the last couple of games, if CJ hadn't shot so well we very well could have lost these games, rebounding needs to improve immediately with NO & LA Lakeres coming to town.
    Hoping Fes gets more PT, he needs it and the Jazz usually increase the lead or make up points while he is on the floor.

    The second unit plays with a lot of energy. I wonder if the first unit would start out a little quicker if they cut down D-Will's minutes a bit, so he had fresher legs each night?
