    Great to see the Jazz come to play last night. It had been a while.

    Mo had a very efficient game, Marvin earned his court time, and it was great to see Burkes play some 2, because he is dangerous as a slasher in this capacity, in a similar way to when Deron was feeding Brewer who was 10 ten in the league in dunks the season he was traded. We haven't had an off the ball cutter like that since AK and and Brewer, and it happened last night with good ball movement.

    Giving up wide open corner threes seems to be a recurring issue.

    Jazz tend to play well when we win the fast break, and it has been a couple of months now since we have, another encouraging sign that Mo's game fitness is coming back.

    Al did a decent job on Splitter, but his inefficient offense and lack of foul shots still hurt us.

    Why the crockodile tears headline? We've seen at least a half dozen, if not more, of these this season. A better headline would be: "Another Day At The Office---Jazz Lose Again."

    Until the Jazz defeat San Antonio in Texas it will NOT be "news." The Jazz routinely lose that game and have for many years. If the Jazz were to win that game, that THAT would be news!

    So I see the justification for coming up short yet again is that Parker was able to play. What a concept----use your best players to win a game and then the losers can blame their loss on that fact. Amazimng logic---NBA style.

    It was a win as far as I am concerned. The Jazz play in overtime looked like all the rest of losses. No urgency, no points in the paint, no defense. More time for Kanter, Favors, Burks and Carroll. Whatever, they will be gone first chance they get.

    This game had me on the edge of my seat and was fun to watch. Favors was a beast and really got the team playing strong defense after being down by double digits again. Burks was great and needs to play more minutes. Marvin played better and props to him for hitting that big shot to force overtime. The negatives were not playing Demarre again, and leaving Favors and Kanter on the bench. It's not that Jefferson and Millsap played poorly, it's just Corbin needs to be turning the team over to the young bucks. Forget about the playoffs already, and start building for the future. Kanter was drafted before Kawai Leanord but Popovitch has turned that youngster into a budding superstar. I feel Kanter is just as good if not better but is wasting away on the bench with Corbin.

    Note to Corbin: leaving the oppositions best 3-point shooters alone on the weak side is NOT good defense. It lost the game for the Jazz, AGAIN!

    Well, that wore me out. It was a hard game to lose, but they played with effort and intensity. They didn't make it easy for the Spurs to win. Glad that it was Marvin Williams with the big three-pointer to take it into overtime. Good for him! Now I hope they can take that energy into Dallas and gain a little ground.

    Go Jazzboys!!!

    I'm happy that we gave the Spurs a game. Once in a while, Mo really helps the team. Most of the time, he hogs the ball and makes us worse.

    Really good effort. No complaints here. The Lakers lost inexplicably to the Wizards at home. The game against the Mavs is a "double game". If the Mavs win, they tie the Jazz and have the tiebreaker. If the Jazz win, they could clinch the playoffs with the Lakers on a whammy run and the Jazz with the tiebreaker. It would appear that Mo-Wil is playing well and was inspired by Parker who is the best at his trade. It also appears that the "young guns" play well with Mo. Marvin plays well with Mo. When Mo is on and back from his injury, it is all about Mo. You have to know what makes Mo tick and whether it is just about a new contract. If the Jazz make the playoffs, you will see how he plays against the best and then you will know. As of now, he is still a mystery.

    Dear Utah Jazzman, why do you all always seem to disappoint me? The year to finally be better than the Lakers but no, you all decide to play YMCA ball with no emotion whatsoever!! Jazz owner, please pay some money to get some players who have heart!!

    When it comes to crunch time, these seasoned winning teams are hard to beat. Good game however for the Jazz to see what they are really made of. Our day will come for our real talent to come off the bench.
