    A great defense is what wins games. Love how the young guys hustle and play hard on defense. Hate when Corbin puts in Big Al at the end of the game just because he's a veteren. His rebounding and defensive energy KILLS us, and on offense he's a black hole. FORT, everytime I read your comments I agree with everything you say.

    I hope that Corbin sees that the interior defense changes with Jefferson in the game. I was worried last night when he put AJ back into the lineup and Durrant and co. went right to the hole. The Jazz went from a seven point lead, to a one point lead in four plays with AJ back in the lineup. The Jazz pay a heavy price for his offense. Everyone needs to keep moving and demanding the ball, instead to standing around while he figures out which move he is going to make. Mark my words, the Jazz will never contend for a title with Jefferson on this team. There is a reason he has been traded so many times. Right now the Jazz have two picks in the top twelve. Some folks have them picking a center, and a point guard. I think the Jazz would be better off rebuilding around these young kids, and go for the lotto. I'd say shop AJ for some quality draft picks or young talent. I'm not sure the Jazz have ever been in a better place where they have so much opportunity to move dead weight. Stay out of the playoffs.

    BRUSS: I am positive when there is reason to be. Right now, I like what I am seeing..It all changed when Gordon headed the 2nd Unit this turnaround...It will still be tough to make the playoffs. However, If I am Corbin I do not ruin this chemistry, change rotations further. Leave be for a bit.

    This just goes to show Bell should be sitting on the end of the bench when he is ready to play. I don't see him being with the Jazz next year. His time has come and gone. Great win by the Jazz. Team is on a roll. I see a sixth seed in the upcoming playoffs.

    I take back my hating on Harris . . . for now.

    Tinsley did an awesome job of leading (and SCORING with) the bench.

    Millsap is becoming the star on this team.

    There are heroes galore tonight. A month ago the Jazz lose a game like this to the Thunder, tentative, not assertive play in the closing minutes of a game. Devon Harris is the architect. He is making his shots and confidently running the team. After Westbrook hit his first 4 shots, Harris I thought outplayed him. CJ is not scoring great, however, to stay on the floor he is getting the concept to help his team in other ways. Defense...Favors has become now even an option of a go to player for the 2nd Unit. Millsap had another strong game in a series of strong games. Tinsley continues to amaze and I also thought Carroll despite looking a little lost on offense, contributed Defensively and hustled well. The open 3s are still there but not to the extent it was recently. Sacramento will not be a gimme. They have won 3 in a row, and are 4-3 on a whopping 9 game homestand..

    It's nice when a superstar actually admits that the defense had something to do with their off night. Durant was very complimentary of the Jazz's defense. Unlike Kobe, who laughed when asked if the Jazz's defense had anything to do with his bad night, and proceeded to insult everyone who guarded him. Good win Jazz, keep it up!
