    Earl Watson is the emotional leader of this team. Good job Earl. The Jazz probably would not have won without his 4th quarter effort.

    Excellent game by the Jazz. Balanced effort for the whole team. I liked how Corbin threw Howard, Hayward, and Bell at Kobe. It threw him off, and made him constantly change his style on offense. Our bench kicked the crap out of theirs, and Fisher and Artest were non-factors.

    That being said, we were not too far off from giving the game away. If Barnes had been hitting from beyond the arch, the game may have turned out differently. We are still having a lot of trouble guarding the 3-ball. Not sure if that problem will ever be solved this season, and I still prefer teams shooting there than in the paint.

    Kanter is learning to get the ball in when there's a crowd under the bucket but for his development he needs a lot more playing time than he's getting, other than blocked shots his defense is much better than Jefferson's already. He and Favors should never get less than 20 minutes PT. Coach Corbin seems to feel like Jefferson and Milsap have to get 32 to 36 minutes whether their playing good or bad.

    It was a real grinder type of game until the Jazz opened it up, spearheaded by Watson's play. Don't forget the Lakers had to be a little tired in the second half, but still, great team win for Jazz. Good to see Favors and Kanter being so productive. Kanter had a couple of put backs where he powered it in, something he was not as good at earlier in the year. Now let's see if the Jazz can go 3-3 in the next six.
