    I hope CJ can keep playing well, I know he has the talent to play even better than he is but the question is his confidence and consistency. CJ's game is exactly what the Jazz need, when he is playing well, when he is hitting his outside shot and driving he creates major problems for the other team. He passes well and he runs the offense well and he is starting to hit the boards better. CJ is still young and still has room for improving, I'm hoping he will just keep getting better and better.
    Fes is the next player I hope gets enough playing time so he can improve. He brings what the Jazz need, a defensive presence in the middle. His problem right now is his confidence on the offensive end.
    I think Evan and Hayward can be good players but they need playing time and confidence.
    Hopefully the team can start rebounding the ball better and that may result in some lopsided games that will allow Evans and Hayward to get more playing time.

    I said at the beginning of the season that the key to the Jazz's success would be the progression of CJ. I'm going to make another prediction: The Jazz will win 90% of the games in which CJ scores 16 or more points

    Fes isn't capable of being a starter. First let's see if he can play 20 minutes without passing out.

    CJ is not playing enough minutes because Jerry determined his minutes for the next 10 games, 10 games ago.

    I still would like to see Jeremy Evans for 10 minutes a game. Hayward is not impressing me at all.

    CaptainL: I agree, Fes changes the defense. Nobody really cared much for Ostertag, but the fact is, he made guys alter their shots. I think Fes should be starting ball games, and Milsap and Jefferson can scrum over who gets the start at power forward and who comes off the bench.

    GO JAZZ!

    I have been a big CJ fan/supporter but have often complained about his inconsistent play.
    I feel CJ has the potential to be even better than he is playing and I hope he keeps getting better and more confident. Consistency is still something he has to show he can bring and if he does it will make a big difference to the Jazz success.
    Fes makes the Jazz better and it is frustrating that so many can't see the difference he makes. He doesn't have to score to impact the game in a positive way, his presence in the paint usually allows the Jazz to outscore their opponent and that is why he usually has one of the highest plus/minus scores of anyone on the team. Sloan wants his offense to run thru his bigs and Fes doesn't give him that yet but winning is the name of the game and Fes's positive plus/minus shows he helps the team outplay the opponent while he is on the floor.
    I like Elson and he has played well but he doesn't change the game like Fes does.

    CJ does it all this year. Rebounds, blocks shoots, steals, assists. He is like a mini AK but actually has a great offensive game.

    He plays better off the bench because as a shooter he needs touches and the 2nd team needs him. Keep starting Bell.

    CJ has carried this team the last two games. Dwill is in a huge shooting slump. Millsap needs to make some noise this week.

    Never been a Fes fan but I am becoming one. The Jazz seem to be better with him in game for 15 minutes.

    I would like to see CJ start over Bell. He has much more energy and atacks rebounds and blocks shots much better than Bell. Oh, and he shoots much better to, and can help D-Will create.

    CJ is one of the Jazz smarter players, and he outstanding as far as an athlete. He can stand and hit the open three or unlike Korver, CJ can put it on the floor and drive and dunk or pull up and hit the 2. He also understands the flow of the game and seldom messes up but plays within the parameters set by the coach and teamates.

    CJ also brings to the game a defense that is really good. Most offensive weapons bring little defense but CJ brings a ton. The Jazz were wise when they kept him.
