    I have been commenting all season long about lack of perimeter and interior defense! If your not going to guard outside why don't we stop teams driving inside? Geez look at other successful defensive teams (the best) and implement what they do. Also our offense is the same old tired system that has been run here for years, other teams know it better than our guys. Implement to player strengths Ty on both ends.

    Yes, "the BIG line up could hurt them."

    Yes, "needs to find more time for Favors."

    Hasn't this been blatantly obvious to everyone except Ty for a long time???

    How frustrating is it to keep starting the same lineup over and over again and expecting a different result...that's insane ;-)

    Starters play more minutes. The most effective player on the team is Favors. START FAVORS!!! It's not a question of starting free agents like Howard or Carroll, who probably won't be with the team next year. It's about starting Favors instead of Howard or Carroll.

    Start the BIG lineup of Big Al, Favors, Millsap, Hayward and Harris. Get off to a good, or at least a better, start. Who knows, they might even have a slight chance to win, if they get off to a better start and play Favors more.

    Ty is getting severely out coached.

    Good comments.

    To me the 3 biggest disappointments in this series are little Al,Corbin and Harris. Weak defense, weak decision making, weak effort and weak execution will get you nothing but embarassment in the playoffs.

    Play Favors, Play Favors and Play Favors for crying out loud Corbin!!! Go Jazz win!!!

    The problem is this.

    Corbin is playing according to salary ie. Jefferson and Harris worth 23 million dollars.

    23 million dollars worth of salary playing has gotten us back to back blowouts. Corbins next problem is that Millsap is the best all around player we have but he can not guard the 3 position against the Spurs because they are too fast for him.

    This results in the ultimate dilemma which is Corbin is too busy playing salary ahead of Favors who is the only inside player athletic enough to guard the high pick and roll and have any chance of recovering to affect Parkers shot.

    So through the first two games Corbin has sat Favors and we have gotten blown off the court. Corbin is trying to maintain some cred with his big dollar veterans who are stinking it up.

    Play Favors or these games won't even be competitive.

    Harris and Jefferson have shown you what they can do in pressure situations which is absolutely zilch and as such they both ought to be gone over the summer. What a collosal waste of money these two are. Why all the money for 2 non-allstars.

    Favors NOW!!!

    As I have said before, starting Milsap, Favors and Jefferson is an improvement, but the main move is starting Favors. If that means sitting Millsap and starting Howard or Carroll, I'm O.K. with it. Millsap will get his 30+ minutes, anyway. Jefferson is the guy who needs to have his minutes cut, because he is a liability on defense. Parker's drives to the hoop are limited as much as possible when Favors is in the lineup. As I've said before, Harris and Hayward must hit more jumpers, and they probably will tonight. This might be the last good Jazz game this year, so enjoy Jazz fans!

    Everbody else can see the need to start the big three inside, and to involve Cantor more in the rotations. Why can't Corbin see it? Good grief!
