    the question is...does Corbin learned anything from it?...by the end of the season...Corbin would have a master's degree in Losing...the doctorates goes to the team in the lottery...

    @ Americanvet, I agree 100% Never boo your own team or players.

    I think the Jazz are beyond critical. Time to get out the paddles and try to get the heart started. This is a hard time right now for the Jazz. Do you root for them to win or lose and get a better draft pick. Thru the years it sure seems like some teams are playing for the draft pick at the end of the season. I'm sure they wouldn't do that. Ya right!

    Why fight for the 8 spot? to get killed by SA or OKC? Does making the playoffs with this team matter? Or would the Jazz be better served to lose out for the draft? With the impending exodus of half the team the Jazz will need more players to fill the holes. Going to the playoffs this year with no shot at advancing would be pointless. The season is over

    Don't look now. If the Jazz lose at Oke City tonight, they will have 32 losses with Dallas at 33 and Portland at 34.

    Coach Corbin uses that same phrase a lot, in response to bad Jazz losses...

    "You learn from it and go on."

    That sounds good. But if they actually did learn from each of those tough losses, by now they would be the intellectual giants of the league and seldom losing at all. But that doesn't seem to be the case... not by a long shot.
    There have been too many either blow-out losses, or close losses after giving up 4th quarter leads. I really wish they were learning experiences, but those same things just keep happening.
    If coach doesn't soon come up with a plan that entails some real changes, he'll keep getting the same results and it won't be good enough. There's no doubt the talent is there. At times, they've beaten some of the best in the NBA in impressive fashion. Consistency has been their true nemesis.

    This time of year, in this situation, is when coach really needs to earn his multi-million dollar salary and prove to management and fans that he's the one for the job. If he can't do that, then maybe he isn't.

    Coach Corbin is right, they don't need to panic......because I'm doing it for them!!!! But that's just me, the Queen of Worry. Let's hope they play UP to OKC tonight and not be intimidated, just get into Westbrook's head and cause him to foul and lose his cool.

    Go Jazzboys!!!

    I am with you brotha. I think it is real bush league to boo players. I know many feel they have the right to boo when they paid a lot of money to go to a game but I still think it shows no class. I will boo what I think is a bad call by the refs, but that's it. I don't even boo players from the opposing team, and in fact I think that just inspires them to play harder. If you're unhappy with one of your players you can just not sit on your hands and stay quiet. I think that sends a stronger message, as long as you cheer them on when they play hard.

    Pretty low that Jazz fans booed Al. Classless. Al might not be the best defender but he is good and he does not deserve to be booed by his own fans..... Come on Jazz fans get it together.

    As for tonight. Don't see the Jazz coming within 20. Hopefully they gear up for the road ahead though...

    Yes, the game is on Wednesday. They always post these articles a few hours after the end of the day. So, they usually appear around 7:30-8:30 p.m. the day before the game.

    Before I realized they were doing this, I would panic thinking that I was missing the game. I now print out the Jazz game schedule, mount it on my wall, and reference it if I have any questions as to what day the game is actually on.
