    There's no such thing as a moral victory. Winning is winning and losing is losing. If the Jazz believe in moral victories, they need to relocate to Provo.

    And now we see why the Jazz have lost any chance of being good. Moral victories are for losers, period. No team with any self respect or with any pride would ever admit a moral victory.
    Get rid of Corbin's loser attitude, get rid of Al Jefferson's selfishness (he's no different than Boozer), and get someone at the helm who will push the Jazz to be a contender.

    Agree that OK is much better! Also agree that Tinsley, and Watson might not make the cut on another them. Burks looks to have a very low BB IQ. Gifted, but a little bit like C J Miles. Hayward just can't shoot with any consistency. Mo a good shooter, but sub par point guard. Williams, athletic but also not that sharp of a basketball player. Evans? Why did the Jazz sign him? slam dunks are just slam dunks! Millsap misused, AJ (I've said enough) Kanter, could be an all star someday, also misused. Foye, slow on defense, shoots well but doesn't move without the ball. Corbin..... lost and clueless.

    I watched the entire game last night and what I saw was the Jazz seriously outmatched by a younger and more athletic team that played with the Jazz for a time and allowed the Jazz to think they were going to catch up before the OK Thunder started to get serious at the end. The Thunder looked like they were in a warm-up practice mode and the Jazz put in everything they had. In spite of Corbin's comments about character, the Jazz again looked like a bunch of old guys playing against a team that knew they were going to win but played around with the old guys to keep them rested for the next night. Except for Kanter, no one on the Jazz team made a serious contribution. When you staff your team with D-league players, guys that are 3-4 years past their prime, and players that no one in the league wants other than the Jazz, the results are predictable.

    Like I said before, no leader.

    Same old story.. Kanter's defense and rebounding, (this time his offense too) brings them back from a deficit created by Jefferson's inability to defend. When will Greg Miller realize what Boston and the Timber wolves already knew, you can't win with AJ on the team. As blessed as he is on offense, he destroys the teams defense. Last night the minute he returned to the game, they took it right to the rim and had many second and third chances. Have you noticed that he doesn't even get up and contest a shot unless its the man he is guarding. He just slides out the way for other guards and smaller players to lay the ball in. I love the Jazz... but this is getting predictably hard to watch.

    There are no moral victories in the NBA. You either win or lose. No team is rated for good loses.

    Al Jeffersons comment is my most hated comment by professionals... The old "we never gave up"....really. Lets consider that:

    1. The 16 year old that fills sacks with the wrong happy meal each day and gets fired...never gave up! He just couldn't do his job.
    2. Mitt Romney is on vacation today because he didn't win...but he never gave up.
    3. Coach Embry at Colorado was fired last week because his team went 1-11...but he didn't give up.

    Since when is that a factor in anything??? Let alone a $10 million guy? Hey Al...how about we agree to pay you $10 million...you on the other hand agree to....ahhhh...lets see....hmmm...oh yeah!! Never give up!

    Oh Mr. Corbin! Wonderful inspiring comment..."We fought and showed character". You still lost! I think its time for you to figure out how to improve your team.

    Comment,I'll leave a comment. Why was Kanter not used down the stretch when he was tearing it up out there?
