Boozer was a big plus last year in the +/-. This year, he is a -. He needs to
improve if the Jazz are to have a chance, or he will be sitting. They have
looked better with him on the bench than on the court lately. That does not
bode well for Utah or Boozer.
Magnus,That is an interesting statistic for sure. However, the Jazz
have had about 20 different starting lineups. So it's not that shocking because
they've clearly lacked consistency. I think the last 13 games will tell us all
what kind of playoff team the Jazz will be. It'll be interesting to find out!
I hope Jerry is here for 10 more years.
lost in overtime. They should have lost big. The West is tough. The Jazz are
still learning to mesh with Boozer. They learned to play well without him. Now
they are learning to play with him.
Oh you guys, Jerry is just being funny. I really enjoy watching the Jazz. I
don't see much of the game because I am focused on players physiques and other
stuff. Well by for now.
I just read this from John Hollinger, it was part of his commentary on how the
team dynamic changes in teh playoffs, and I think it makes an important
point..."The Jazz have the best plus-minus in the league with their
subs on the floor...'But the flip side is that their starters rank
dead last among the nine Western playoff contenders in plus-minus, and those are
the guys they're counting on to do the heavy lifting in the playoffs.' '...If the Jazz are gaining most of their advantage from a matchup that will
take place with far less frequency in the postseason, it stands to reason
they're going to be less effective."I think this is interesting for
a couple of reasons. My initial reaction was "this is just more proof that we
need to cahnge the starting lineup". While that may be true, when I went and
looked at the +/- for the Jazz 5-man units I was surprised at what I found.
DWill's lying. He used to have a twitter feed a couple years ago, but took it
@ PPEIsn't it crazy how close the West is right now? Two losses are
the difference between 3rd and 7th, that's just crazy.I was totaly
bummed when I saw that the Hornets, Nuggets and Rockets all just barely eeked
out wins last night. All three of those teams where playing games they should
have won easily and all of them needed last second heroics to pull out a win.
Nobody, except the Lakers of course, is looking dominant in the west
right now. Everybody seems to be struggling to put away Lottery teams and when
any of the teams ranked 2-8 in the west get together it seems to come down to
who has home court. Most of the teams in the west have tough
schedules comming down the stretch, but nobody has it as tough as Utah, with 7
of their 8 road games against west playoff teams.
". . .our defense has not held up very good." No kidding. Have you looked at
Boozer lately in the middle?
Looking at the current standings, the Jazz would be in 3rd place, only one loss
behind San Antonio, had they not buckled late in those two road losses. My how
the little things can make such a big difference.Instead, the Jazz
are fighting to stay out of 8th.Maybe Sloan's sense of humor can win
Sloan has a pretty good sense of humor. This is another reason I like him.
A player tweeting during half time of a game? Uh, is this stupid or what? Put
it away for a couple of hours. Technology is to be used, not to use you.
