    Pathetic thats all I can say. Greg you have 5 players you can let go and replace next year and the complete coaching staff. Step up and show you care, don't let this ridiculous crap exist. Corbin still says the games starts are not good. What does he do about it? Nothing! No starting of different players, no letting players know it's not going to happen when they don't give effort and energy to begin, just more talk. Wow! Players to get rid of are trade big Al & Bell, don't resign Miles, Watson, and Evans and restock thru the draft trades and free agents. I agree with above commentor, how about McMillan?

    It's time for the Jazz to admit that Corbin is not up to the job. I have wanted to see Favors, Milsap, and Jefferson play together. It is the only way to get Favors the minutes he deserves. In desperation it was finally tried against Portland and it worked great. So of course Corbin doesn't go to it last night. I could write a book on the mistakes Corbin continues to make. For us to have any future we need to go a different direction. Corbin needs to be fired. But of course we all know the position of head coach for the Jazz is a lifetime position. The Jazz will never fire anybody.

    Nate Mcmillan is a better coach than Corbin...and people would say..that on critical times..you go with vets...i would disagree...instead of vets...go with the players that are playing well...it would have made a huge difference...for the two close calls...we would've won those if Favors Kanter and Burks played more...the only positive thing here is...Hayward is playing well...very well...underrated player...and if any of the young guns wont get resigned or being traded...probably its time to move teams....

    I was there last night and I guarantee you I didn't go home with a broken heart. :) It was just loads of fun even being in the building and enjoying all the cumulative energy of the fans, hearing the great sound system and seeing Steve Nash a long time fave player of mine.... Of course it would have been nice to witness a victory and claimed a free big mac today, but, I don't need the cholesterol and well..... Thank goodness it is only a game making people mega rich!

    Todd I agree Pheonix is a team that is well coached, the Jazz however are a team that pretty much gets out coached on a nightly basis. Corbin needs to place coaching princibles before personalities and that includes winning.

    Fortydam I watched the same game you did again. My throat is raw from yelling at big Al to play some defense. I wish we had a coach with enough backbone to sit big Al until he starts defending, the way Theobeau did with Boozer to introduce him to the defensive end of the floor. Favors had a very good game going last night that was cut short in favor of big Al. Favors pulled down 8 boards in only 15 minutes of play compared to big Als 7 boards in 37 minutes. Favors went 4-7 from the field for 9 points and played solid on BOTH ends of the floor. He also recorded 2 blocked shots.

    All I can say is go Golden State at this point.

    Al Jefferson missed more defensive rotations than he has the entire season! You had to know the minute he came back in the game that the Suns would drive right to the hole. C J and Jefferson cannot defend, at all! The first tee minutes of the game Jefferson looked so lost that he just walked away from the basket when he got beat on the pick and roll. (Before the play was finished). When the pick and roll was ran at Miles side of the floor, it was even worse. Both C J and Jefferson standing at the three point line watching not one, but both of there guys escort the ball to the hoop. It was the very reason Millsap got two early fouls trying to fill the void left by AJ.

    I'm glad they lost. Maybe they can start to develop some of the talent that is being wasted on this team. Favors, Burks, Kanter. Millsap needs to stay, AJ and CJ need to go!

    Paul Millsap you are a clown! To make a statement like "especially to a team we know we can beat" Wrong wrong, the Suns have had you'r number 8 times in a row! Go Suns!

    C'mon coach Corbin. Do you really want the ball in CJ Miles' hands in a close one? Why were Tinsley and Burks on the bench in the critical moments of the game? Bad coaching lost this one. Oh yeah, defense of the perimeter was awful too. Again, a couple of better defenders were observers at crunch time. Sheesh!

    We can all continue to ignore this. I will not. 3 Balls. Over and Over and Over again. Frye shot was a miracle. You take that away most of these 3s were too obvious. Corbin never makes adjustments. Even when the players get aware they need to cover shooters, and make some hustle plays here and there, it never lasts. Really Gordon and Paul had the most complete games give or take a missed assignment here and there. Miles for all he scored gave up as many. It does not take super intelligence to know Dudley, Frye and Redd will cradle the line and they know Corbin and Sloan before will not come out and have shooters come out. The season now basically over. The question what was AJ doing way out on Nash, and no one came up to help. You really wonder sometimes. It is sad because talent wise, we should be able to compete with most teams especially Phoenix. However, Gentry is a better Coach
