    Tyrone Corbin credited his team "for pushing an opponent on the road."
    Translation: We lost by only single digits for a change.
    Wow. To the mighty Pelicans, no less. That was one of the few times the Jazz haven't lost on the road by double digits in quite awhile. In fact, the Jazz haven't even won a road game since February 11th... over a month and a half ago.
    If I was a Jazz coach, I'd have my resume updated and the stamps already on the envelopes.
    How could the Millers not be anxiously waiting to point the team in a new direction?
    It's currently very embarrassing and continues getting more so.
    Missing out on Jeff Hornacek (when having him in-house) makes it doubly embarrassing.
    It's getting hard to even remember what watching the Jazz in the playoffs was like. It's becoming ancient history.
    My grandpa told me those were the good old days.

    Tough stretch?

    I'd say that part of the headline is a...stretch.

    The Jazz are in tank mode and now I believe Corbin is in on it. His rotation reflects it. For example he has reduced Jeremy Evans playing time. How do you REDUCE the playing time of a player with the second highest PER on the team?

    There is no other plausible excuse.

    Alec Burkes continues to be more efficient (PER) than Jefferson and Williams yet they continue to get the same minutes as Burkes. Huh?

    Just embrace it people. You are not going to see progress. A few tweaks is all it takes and the losses will pile up quickly which is what happened. Hold off on calling that time out a few more possessions. Tighten up the rotation and give better players fewer minutes.

    The Jazz players are trying but the organization has one shot to lose and get into the lottery for a nice top draft pick. Of course nothing is guaranteed but you can't lose all these games and then miss out on this type of projected draft talent. That is a waste.

    All that said Corbin is not a good coach. This teams defense is horrific and he has failed miserably teaching that.

    The Jazz might as well take the first 12 fans who walk in the building and put them on the floor. There doesn't seem to be an iota of improvement. We'd rather watch Evans and Gobert, who might actually improve with playing time. Diante Garrett and Alex Burks are the only player who seem to have improved this year.

    Big changes start with the coach. He is maybe an assistant at best. New announcers would also be a nice change. Harpring should be selling popcorn in the stands, not trying to be funny all the time and making excuses for the team. The team has no concept of defense or toughnes. Hayward can't shoot and should be allowed to leave. Burks needs to get a long term contract. Right now he is our best player.

    Pacers are good. Working to be great. The Jazz are just horrible and building to be just a little less horrible. Time to make some big changes. Larry must be flipping out
