    What happened with Jeremy Evans' ankle injury last night? Was it serious? Will he be able to play tomorrow? I think minutes will help him in many ways, so I hope he will be back in action. I'm still looking forward to next season with this group of players with, we hope, no substantially ongoing injuries to deal with.

    Go Jazzboys tomorrow (and beyond)!!!

    @ Sega... Al Jefferson had 4 blocks and 10 rebounds last night. I'm pretty sure you can't play "absolutely no defense" and do that. He is our best player and is becoming a much better defender. He is also a team player and a leader in the locker room. He plays hurt and always takes responsibility when things don't go right but gives credit to others when things go well. I would be very careful what you wish for if you think it's better to play the younger bigs over Big Al!

    Oh, and I think Coach Corbin might have a few more plays in place than the one you mentioned as his only strategy...

    Seriously dude, do you even watch the Jazz?

    We ended both halfs with Favors, Milsap, and Jefferson on the court at the same time. In those 11 minutes we outscored the Spurs by 20 points. The rest of the game we were outscored by 15. This is our best lineup. Why can't Corbin see this? It worked great when we used it at Portland.
    And again last night. Yet over and over again Corbin complains about slow starts and then he starts Carrol. Really, sorry but Carrol should not be starting. The starting lineup should be Favors, Milsap, Jefferson, Heyward, and Harris. This lineup is long and better defensively and will fix our slow starts. Please, please, please get a clue Corbin.

    This situation of not playing their three best players is "unusual" to say the least.

    It's because Corbins coaching strategy is to have Harris dribble it down the court, throw it to Hayward, and Hayward throws it to Al down on the post. That is the most of his creativeness. That is all we do, and I don't see how any coach in the league can't game plan against that. Luckily last night Al didn't shoot 30 shots and moved the ball a little bit.

    Jefferson is playing absolutely no defense, taking shots I'd rather Milsap take, and taking time away from the younger guys. Me personally I don't get it. He can score his points, but he never helps on defense or block's out so that tends to counter his 20 points a night. Not only that but he does nothing to help his team out, well besides shoot too much.

    rogerdpack2: Back home resting. They have 13 games in the final 19 days of the season, so Popovich is picking and choosing when and where they will play. I'm not sure why he thinks all three of them need to sit out the same game. Seems like they could rest one or two at a time and still keep winning.

    Good to see Harris FINALLY take over a game.

    If Bonner would've hit those last three 3 pointers he put up, the outcome might have been different.

    Hopefully Denver and Phoenix can implode.
