    "...Not to get political, but...".

    The Jazz chances are sinking faster than romneys' failed campaign/run as POTUS.

    There...all better.

    it might be a little too late...we have a tougher schedule than LA and Houston...the 3 games that we lost should have been won...but if we do not get into the playoffs...i hope that is the reason they would boot corbin out

    @Queensland Jazz fan

    i am with you...Big Al is a PF\C...and as such we expect him to hit at least 50% of his shots...especially the way he plays the game...back to the basket with a lot of post moves on his arsenal...i hope we dont sign either Big Al or Paul Millsap...if we could get Ed Davis...that would be great...we have 3 young Big Men...and add a serviceable big man who can defend...but majority of the backup minutes goes to Ed Davis...if not Ed Davis...we could make a run for Mareese Spreights...if we dont sign mo...we could sign Jose Calderon to a 2 year contract...while we develop Burks as a PG...but...we also need to develop Hayward as Burks and Hayward would share the responsibilities and is much more efficient that way...giving numerous looks on offense...we also need a good coach with a solid system...and i think...Brian Shaw could be the guy given the chance...we need to replace earl and jamal...they are good..but we need a better one...they should have kept Maynor

    Desperation game but a win never the less. A well coached Jazz team with this talent would be assured of a playoff position at this point. Corbin is just messing around wondering what to do while the future of the Jazz hangs in the balance. The future is on the bench.

    I agree with JBQ - Jefferson in particular played about ten minutes too many, and was just not effective in the fourth quarter, didn't block out on the glass all night. Kanter needed, deserved, more minutes. There just isn't much chance of winning any game when your offense revolves around a guy who averages more shots than points.

    What would we be saying about Hayward's last three-point attempt if it hadn't gone in? Seems like shooting those threes with the lead in the final minutes hasn't always worked out for the Jazz...

    OK, here's mine:

    Some players put their heart into the game. Some put their soul into the game. But Gasol is the only player to put his shoesole into the game.

    First, it was good to see the team beat a quality opponent for a change, 2nd it was nice to see Hayward redeem himself by winning this game with some big shots at the end after he missed some chances to win some close games last week.

    But, Corbin remains a mess. Kanter, who has been the most productive Jazz player over the last few weeks plays 10 minutes now that Jefferson and Millsap are off the injured list. Are you kidding me? And the 10minutes he played he played well. How does Marvin Williams play almost 23 minutes and score 5 points while Kanter scores 8 in 10 minutes play into the future of this team. Also, Watson plays 12 minutes, scores 2 points and Burks plays 8 minutes and scores 3 points. Why is Watson getting any minutes at all while Burks is forced to sit on the bench. Corbin, you got a lot of splainin to do!!

    At any rate, congrats to the team for a nice win!!

    in the 80s and early to mid 90s...this was legal...you are allowed to hand check your guy...and push him off...with your hand....but today...hand checking is not allowed...i am not sure if this is what you mean by "hands on" players....

    i just hope...that corbin gets sacked...and we bring in...a few pieces that we would really need...and hand the keys to the four guys...Foye...for me is a backup...so is Marvin Williams...Demarre as well...we would need a legit 3...i want to be creative..and have burks and hayward have the ball...in the offseason...Hayward needs to work on his penetration...especially when he trying to push between players...he gets stripped easily...work on rebounds...as well as some ball handling...to be much efficient..he also needs a dependable post up game...when match ups are in his favor...for Favors...Ball handling and footwork...and back to the basket drills with kanter doing the same...burks...same with hayward...but more emphasis on perimeter shooting..both Burks and hayward needs to develop perimeter D

    I am not sure that a "Jekyl and Hyde" approach and response will make the playoffs. The 11 point lead was whittled to three. Bayless made two threes and this was matched by two by Hayward, not just the one. Jefferson and Millsap did not play well in the fourth quarter with Millsap turning the ball over and Jefferson missing two key free throws. Favors and Kanter did play well. This would indicate that AJ and MSap ran out of gas while Favors and Kanter should have played more. Next, there is the Knicks followed by a make or break three game trip to AlamoLand.

    why does the NBA allow "hands on" offensive players? Sheesh, Memphis all but mugged the Jazz players everytime they touched the ball--but no foul calls against them. This is bad for the game of basketball. When the D can keep their hands on the player they are guarding, the game of basketball will deteriorate into a street fight--and not basketball.
