    Kanter shut down the paint! It was his exit both times that gave Boston back the paint, and also the second chance points. Jefferson is as bad as he is good for this team. His offensive game shuts everyone else out for the Jazz on each possession that he touched the ball, everyone stops moving and stands around because he seldom passes the ball. On defense, well lets just say he cost the jazz double what he puts in. (see his plus minus numbers) Teams score at will on the Jazz when he actually screens out his own team mates on the pick and roll.

    Why doesn't this feature ever include a score on the head coach? Ty was out-coached in this game.

    Hayward was gassed. A couple of minutes on the bench would have helped him in the end.

    Carroll was getting killed by Pierce. A change of pace to Marvin might have thrown Pierce off his game a little.

    Burks struggled several time getting the team into its offense. Two minute with Tinsley or Watson might have given Boston a different look.

    Burks, Hayward and Foye have been a good combination. Never saw it.

    Why no substitutions after the middle of the fourth. Doesn't Ty understand he has twelve players available for the whole game; not just the first 3 1/2 quarters? Doesn't he know you can pull a player and then put him back in after a rest?

    Does he freeze late in the game? Is he stubborn? Is he dumb? Is a worn out Hayward, Carroll, and Burks really better than a fresh Foye, Marvin, and Watson/Tinsley?

    I've seen Ty lose several games over the last couple of years. I've never seen him win one.

    Favors committing his fifth four was a turning point. In effect, he pulled himself out of the game, since Corbin doesn't like a young player to foul out and that was his fifth foul.
