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.
