    @northstar, You said it before I could, just refuse to play the good teams on the road.

    @Iowa Jazz Fan, It also wouldn't hurt if he would learn to box out.

    Brahmabull. Good comment, it's not just C J's lack of defense, it's his lack of consistency and heart. He can play well when he can just gun, or play one on one. Give him a structured play or offense to run and he jogs through the screens, and plays soft. If you want to really get mad at him, watch him away from the ball. He will not set a hard screen for anyone. He just hangs out waiting to shoot. Other players suffer from his lack of hustle. His lack of solid screening for his teammates might be rubbing off on his own game, because it looks like other players are now doing the same for him.

    I have been saying all along that all that was needed to win was to take Cj Miles out of the lineup. Now that he is out of the lineup, the jazz can win. Only put him in sparingly, he plays no defense.

    That's Big Al alright, but at least we're seeing some progress. Who said you cannot teach an old dog new tricks? I guess you can but it's a slow process. Enjoyed your comment.

    "Successful road recipe" = play against bad teams. Increases the probability of success exponentially.

    Slow down man, you don't teach your toddler calculus while they're learning to walk.

    Jefferson: "It took me eight years to realize if I pass the ball outside and guys hit shots it open me up".

    Big Al is the poster child for Slow Learner.

    Will it take him another eight to realize the positive effects of moving his feet on defense?
