    Sneaky Jimmy, are you insane? Evans wouldn't make any other roster in the NBA. This was the only game he hit anything other than a slam dunk, and he is too thin to defend. AK was and still is a much better ball handler, passer, defender, and shooter. Evans should be playing in the D league, and we should have someone that demands minutes other than a few highlight plays.

    yes...but dont they need the minutes to improve?...i'd rather start them and lose...than bench them and lose...its better for them to get the exposure of starting minutes...the key here is the future...not tomorrow...it will take awhile...and yes they wont probably win 10 straight games...the difference is...their confidence and chemistry playing along with each other...against top tiered players...is key...they could feed off from that...and giving them the confidence of a starting role...is good for their morale...meaning they know that the team is committed to them in the long run

    Playing one game as a starter proves very little. We underestimate how difficult it is to put up that kind of energy every game. Al and Milsap have proven they can do it. Favors and Kanter have not. Jeremy Evans if fun to watch, but comparing him to Kirilenko is insulting to the Russian. I think Milsap is worth keeping at under $10 million. If Jefferson wants more money next season, we should let him go, and take our chances with the young guys.

    i have to agree with you...AK is better overall...but Jeremy Evans is a leaper but still did a great job...if Al and Paul comes back...i am afraid...we might go back to losing...and the development of our core 4 will get stumped...Corbin doesnt really reward you with playing time even after you got a 20-20 performance...if al is back next game...look at the diminished minutes of Kanter

    @Sneaky Jimmy
    I like Evans but whoa man...better than Kirilenko? Better leaper and rebounder, yes. But Kirilenko's free lance defensive ability along with his proficiency as a passer were all-star caliber. Good to see Jeremy getting some meaningful minutes and playing well, though.

    @Sneaky Jimmy,

    You said it! 14 points 8 rebounds and some blocks after DMP's most of the season! Kanter also is amazing. He has AMAZING footwork, and stellar defense. He's improved 100% over last year. Great game.

    Kanter will be great for the Jazz. His humility and hard work are blessing his career and his life. He is built for the job, and as the Boy Scout Oath goes, he is "physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight". We will see good things from our youthful, talented players who are on the bench and carrying much credit for what we are achieving.

    Jeremy Evans needs to play more. he brings a completely different dynamic when he is in the game. Similar to a young Kirelenko but longer and better.
