    Thanks, Matt -- very enjoyable to read this intelligent analysis, especially of why Mo is being so successful with the pick and roll (shoulder to shoulder with the screener). It's terrific that Ty has allowed the pick and roll to recently resume its hallowed place in the Jazz offense (instead of dumps into Al in the post on every trip). I can only wonder what the Jazz record would be at this point if he had done this in November.

    No doubt it was nice to finally see some assists out of Williams for a change. Any way you slice it he is still a shooting guard in a PG body. An he still jacks up multiple bad shots attempts a game not to mention missing multiple layups.

    Although AJ can fill it when he has it going, I am tired of watching AJ shoot jumpers/slight fadeaways avoiding contact.

    When the guy who has the ball for your team literally half the game clock can't/won't get to the free throw line it dooms your team to failure in the playoffs. Opposing bigs never get in foul trouble against Al. Just stand back and let him shoot jumpers or force it up through double and triple teams.

    Last years playoffs was a debacle to say the least for Jefferson. Does not bode well for future success and it looks like we will be facing the Spurs again if we do make it. Old Duncan guarded/shutdown AJ all by himself last year and no double team required. If your guy with the ball all the time can't draw a double then the other team wins. Sorry.
