    It's obvious Haywards place in the 1st teams offense was to feed the ball to Jefferson. He will come into his own now that he feels like he's the go-to guy.

    Corbin gave us a glimpse last night of what we can expect from him the rest of the way, win now at all costs regardless of the development of the young guys or the teams future. Favors and Kanter's minutes were unacceptable.

    The worst thing that could happen is the Jazz making the playoffs as the 7th or 8th seed, they would without a doubt be out in first series and what are we left with? 4 young guys that have not progressed like the should going into next year and the loss of their draft pick in one of the deepest drafts in the last decade.

    I can't believe the Jazz front office would go this route for a couple of million they would gain for getting in the playoffs. The draft pick they would lose alone is worth more than that.

    Fort I Noticed the exact same thing with Big Al. With 3 minutes left he let Irving get lay-up when he clearly could have tried to at least block it. Not only that he had 2 personal fouls at that time. At least foul him and put him to the line, I love Big Al but his laziness is hard to watch sometimes.

    Yes Hugh, you can't give up on Hayward. He is young and playing with an offense that runs through the post. He will be a great player in this league. C J on the other hand has had plenty of time to find himself in this offense. I agree that he too would have developed better in anther system. Hayward plays hard every night. C J plays hard half the time.

    Go check the box score "Hugh" and get back to me with how many Hayward had - until then don't speak (type) until you think

    Nice to see Big Al learning to pass the ball to his team mates. Nice to see Tinsley at all.

    "Eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die" If Corbin does'nt develop the future of this team he won't have much of a future. Is selling our future for an eighth seed and done really what is best for this team? For this franchise?

    Splitting Hayward from the starting lineup will give him a offense that gives him a better chance. The same should be done with Millsap.

    I thought Jefferson was going to give that back last night. Again his lack of defense allowed anyone to stroll right down the middle. He even moved back several times creating an effective screen against his own teammates. His lack of help defense is so puzzling. He has great offensive footwork, but refuses contest or even get close to someone driving down the lane. He looks like he needs a box of popcorn and a seat there under the basket. Watch him closely in the game, it's like he intentionally gets out of the way of people trying to score.

    Jefferson with seven assists and Tinsley with a good game with two threes are events of note.

    This win shows that the Jazz need a third person besides Millsap and AJ that can consistently
    provide good scoring (20pts). I don't think that it matters whether that player starts or comes off the bench. So far neither CJ or Hayward have proven to be that consistent player.

    The real story for me is Tinsley. He should replace Watson asap. He showed he can run the offense AND score when left open.
