    If the thought is win now, why not get a higher caliber shooting guard to compliment D-Will in the back court? We could make a trade for Andre Iggudala. Use trade exception from harpring, rights to Ante Tomic and Gordon Hayward, maybe add Fesenko. That would give us a champiuonship caliber team, no question about it. We could trade AK expiring contract too, but a hot AK makes us a good team, a cold AK makes us a bad team.

    On paper...the jazz team is one of the best...and will be an elite team...the thing that holds them back...is experience playing with each other...it won't be next week that is critical...its after the all-star break...even though they got 20 something games under their belts doesn't mean they have a chemistry like the spurs have...they will need more time to develop...and if they want to be that elite team...they need to keep working hard...not just every game...but every practice session...and i think they should play hayward more often...his skills will get dull if not used...poor kid

    I think too much is read into one game or even six games in the NBA. As fans we don't realize how hard it is to win on a consistent basis. These are the best players in the world going at it day in and day out. Sometimes a win or a loss is decided by a turn over here or going left instead of right there. Jumping to soon or jumping too late. shooting from 25 feet and pushing the ball 3 inches too far or a little right or left. No matter how good of a position you have on a potential rebound sometimes the ball does not bounce your way. There is an element of luck involved. That element is in every single possesion and it's not always dispersed evenly. One night your team gets its fair share of it. One night your team gets none of it. One night your team gets all of it. That is the fun of it. There is alot of talent in the NBA. Thank goodness we (the Jazz) have alot of it, but so do alot of other teams. Deron Williams is a warrior! Go D-Will !!!

    This next week should be a good indication of how this team will respond and play against elite teams. Are the Jazz just a mediocre playoff team that doesn't have a chance to make a real run come playoff time? Or is this Jazz team a legitimate threat to contend for a title? I know this Jazz team is good, but I am not ready to say this team is great, at least not yet, not when they get blown out at home. Keep working hard, GO JAZZ!!

    I watched the first half and thought they played well, then I fell asleep the second half...so i can only comment on what they did well the first half, which was make key outside shots and continue to work the ball into the paint, it looked in the first half the jazz were going to beat the mavs, they're timing was a little bit off, mavs just played better, like dwill said but if the jazz play like they did in the first half then ithink they would win.
