    I have different issues with Corbin. I think these kids needed to earn their playing time, and they have been given almost enough, with the exception of Kanter. He should have played more all season to help the team defense. There are contract obligations to all NBA talent, if it isn't a no trade clause, it's starters minutes. Wesley Matthews wanted more money than he was worth. The Jazz didn't want to make a long term AK mistake again. You will see most of these veterans bolt because Utah will not match any deal, or if they are smart they will encourage a sign and trade. Jefferson has hit his prime, he is due for a team change and a stint on the DL with those knees. Millsap will move on and stay about the same. Kevin will try and resign Foye, extend Mo, then free Watson and Tinsley.

    i still think corbin cant coach...he was bailed by his players...and...with Corbin at helm....i am sure that Favors is getting frustrated with his minutes...as well as Kanter....one day they'll do great...and the next day...5 mins of playing time...it wont be a surprise if they bolt if we dont give them the minutes they deserve...i can also see burks leaving...sort of like Wesley Matthews did...Hayward as well...

    With the tiebreaker against both the Lakers and Mavericks, strangely the Jazz are in good shape for the playoffs. They lose nine in a row on the road and they will still probably make the playoffs. Portland has sneaked in behind them but with a home and home against them, the Jazz will also get the tirbreaker there. The Jazz really have some good players. Mo-Wil has given them quite a jolt since coming back. At first, it was disruption of the old routine. However, it appears that he is the "spark". Now, can they even win one game against an on fire San Antonio squad. They went overtime on the first night back by Tony P. However, once in the playoffs, it will be "four and done". We will see if Corbin is still standing and what happens to the ten expiring contracts and how much antagonism has been generated for Favors going into year 4 of 5 and Kanter year 3 of 5. The Jazz could be looking at a "burning wagon".

    Very disappointed with the Jazz's effort last night. If you're going to get that coveted first overall draft pick, these are the kind of games you can't afford to win.

    Yikes, With our schedule vs. L.A. and Dallas we might get into the playoffs. This would let Corbin off the hook and we might have to endure him for another year. I'm counting on Dallas and Portland to play well and put an end to this.

    Airballs and turnovers do not constitute "managing the game well" even when you are up 16 points.

    Earl was managing the game well, and I would rather have him on the floor than Mo Williams. That being said, I would rather have Burkes on the floor over all of our guards. The kid makes some bad decisions, but he is learning a lot, and he is a scoring threat from anywhere on the floor. The difference between him and Mo is that he passes the ball. Mo will keep shooting even when he is ice cold.

    Yes, we are within one game of the Lakers, but I am not getting my hopes up. Corbin is not going to change the lineup, so we will be seeing about one game like this out of every 5. The Lakers are slumping a little bit again, and they are giving us a golden opportunity to climb back into the playoff race. I still think the playoffs are a priority, even if we will be beaten badly by San Antonio.

    Jazz beathing 76ers at home is not a big win. A big win would have been at San Antonio, Houston, or Dallas.

    Can someone explain to me why Earl "Scoreless" Watson gets playing time at the expense of other players?

    Far too little, far too late.

    I believe this puts the Jazz 1 game back of the Lakers not 1 1/2.

    The problem is also Dallas now who has totally caught up with the Jazz. At least they have the tiebreaker against both the Lakers and the Mavericks.
