    "Defensively we are still struggling out there in spurts..." IN SPURTS? are you kidding? i watched the whole game. the jazz were playing great on offense. if they had played any semblance of defense they could've blown out the pistons! and yet, the pistons were able to drive for layups and shoot uncontested 3s ALL NIGHT. and the pistons big menh killed our big men on the offensive glass. imagine, a rookie out rebounding millsap and jefferson the whole night. geezzz. isn't the reason we won in indiana was the defense? or did indiana just played really crappy that's why we won?

    against a team with no pressure, you've got to defend the perimeter more especially beyond the arc, taking shots beyond the arc are much more easier than driving inside the paint,eventhough it is low percentage shot, still it is wiser to do it especially if the opponent leaves you open and don't defend it well.. bottomline is we are poor in defending the three point shots of the opponent, especially when the opponent make some pick 'n roll, guys are getting open, no hand in their face what so ever..this problem is already present in Sloan era, and it still continues

    "We played, actually, a great game," Millsap said. "We just didn't do what we needed to do to get over the hump."

    Paul, you need to take a course in Logic 101.

    When as a team you shoot almost 60% and score 116 points, and still lose, you haven't actually played a great game.

    I really think we need to hire another assistant, one to work with our big men and teach them the simple fundalmental of boxing the other team off of the boards. We do not box out. Could that be why we are the second worst rebounding team in the league? Come on Jazz coaches, thats one of the basic things we learned back in bantam basketball. Teams with rings seem to be "aware" of it.
