    summary "Utah improves to 0-3" (I guess you meant "Utah improves to 3-0")

    @Bring Back Sloan,

    I gotta say, I have no idea what you're complaining about with Corbin. He's proved he's a very good coach.

    Last year he overachieved by all standards getting the Jazz to the playoffs.
    This year most predictions said the Jazz would be fighting for the 8th spot. They are tied for 6th right now.

    The only player who truly has a case for more minutes is Kanter, but he's fighting with our top scorer for those minutes, so it's tough.

    Just last night Corbin showed he goes with whatever lineup works best for a particular matchup, by ending the game with Favors and Carrol.

    Before the game started he said the key against the Nets was to push the ball and go as quick as they could on offense. When the players executed that game plan in the second half they took the game from New Jersey.

    That's great coaching.

    I still can't help & think what our beloved Jazz would look like if we had a coach, like Sloan, with a solid system. D-Will is a good point guard, but was an exceptional point guard while playing for the Jazz under Sloan.

    Tho feisty while here, one thing that could never be said about D-Will is that he quit. He always gave us his best on the court.

    P.S. I really wish we had a better coach right now. Burks, Kanter & Favors would definitely benefit and mature quicker from having one.

    Alec Burks hasn't had much playing time, but with the time he's Had, he's done nothing to prove he deserves more. Foye plays better defense and shoots better. Evans on the other hand deserves more time on the court. He's proved it. Watson and Tinsley both have great benefits. Watson is a bulldog who plays gritty defense. Tinsley is a pass first point guard who pushes the ball, both shoot a bad percentage (under 40 percent). I like Corbin using both depending on matchups.

    @ Little Andy

    That's a darn good question. Knowing Corbin it must have something to do with their age not their abilities.

    D-Will is a great point guard and I wish him well. I'm very magnanimous that way when it comes to former Jazz players. OK, I don't feel all that magnanimous about Carlos Boozer but neither does Chicago these days.

    Can anybody tell me why Tinsley and Watson play while Burks and Evans sit???

    Can anybody please tell me why Tinsley plays while Watson sits? Tinsley plays no defense, shoots poorly, and makes poor decisions. Other than that he's fantastic!

    Another great victory for a squad that appears to be jellin'. The Jazz moved on well with the best to D-Wil. The two throw-in messups fit a pattern of lack of concentration. The team has to play well for 40 minutes and not 39 and a half.

    Finally we see Corbin insert some defense down the stretch of this one.(Favors, Hayward and Carroll) I hope he liked it and we see alot more of it! GO JAZZ!

    Tried to give it away at the end. That was hard to watch, I thought they blew it. Good win. Good comeback. Good to beat Deron Williams too. The grass is not so green is it Deron?

    "I'm a system player, and I loved coach (Jerry) Sloan's system, ..." - Deron Williams

    Unfortunately, hindsight is 20/20. I wish Deron would have liked Jerry Sloan enough (while he was here) to follow orders, even when he disagreed with him.
