    I have to keep telling myself, "It's a long season with ups and downs and we're playing the easiest stretch of our schedule right now," but this is exciting. I expected the Jazz to be a 33-33 team at best this year. I now expect us to make the playoffs. Sap has become a truly amazing player. He has handles like a wing, shoots like Malone w/more range, has moves down low like Big Al, and has truly become one of the best 1v1 defenders in the NBA. 1v1 Sap dominated Griffin, something I did not expect to see.

    Great job KOC for assembling this team and hiring Coach Corbin. KOC best GM in the league hands down!

    Interesting that Utah "spanks" the Clippers, Millsap dominates against Griffin and yet USA Today has no write up whatsoever about the game. Hmmm....

    The Clippers have some great athletes on that team. When they are flying high and have Chris Paul they are amazing.

    They seemed to be lacking the work ethic that has been a Jazz trademark for years. For the most part the Jazz are not fearful about mixing it up or going for every loose ball, they really want earned minutes of play.

    Last night Billups tried to take the entire team on his shoulders and bring them up and past the Jazz but one player a team doesn't make (Lakers excepted) and the team of the Jazz was too much for Chauncey.

    It is great to see the Jazz stick together on both ends of the court. The confidence at the defensive end of the court is palpable and as spectator it is wonderful. It is like seeing AK 4 + years ago.
