    If it continues Deron ball handles and scores Jazz will loose more games. Deron isn't Kobe so do what most PG does... then Jazz ll have chance to compete with others. I think his scoring is something to do All star. After All star break everything will be in order.
    Jazz need more FES than Memo.

    I'm truly tired of people saying how Sloan "hates" 3's, and is anti-shooting three pointers.
    Sloan is pro-smart basketball, and taking "good" shots. What he doesn't want is guys jacking up 3's and having them rim off to the opponent who in turn, gets a fast break, or otherwise.

    While D Will has raised his points per game recently, it seems Jefferson and Millsap have slipped. I think the Jazz are a better team when we are getting bigger numbers from our bigs.I think Deron would even agree with that but he has had to score more recently to pick up their slack. I sometimes think our bench plays better and gets the Jazz out of the early deficits because they do spread the offence better and are more efficient. That's what I would like to see from the starters especially as they head off on the road. So I'm a big D Will fan, but I would rather see him scoring 20 points, getting 10-12 assits, and see better scoring from other positions. When Deron is scoring 30+ points, I don't think that is the Jazz team that can win 60 games and go deeper into the playoffs.

    While I agree that hitting those treys at a good rate is v important, I'd hate us to become a team that lives or dies by the three pointer.

    A la Suns / Magic etc....

    If the Jazz as a team were making threes at the league average %, AND if they were no worse than a net even in rebound differential, they'd probably win well over 60 games.

    In every other category they range from very good to great. Sloan hates hearing about threes but the evidence is overwhelming that 3% is what the difference is between good teams on any given night.
