    I'm glad that most of the comments are supportive of this young team instead of slamming them. I think (hope) most of the fans will be patient as long as they can see motivation and effort and the willingness to learn from a loss. Each game, win or lose, will bring something to the improvement of each player, if he so observes and chooses, which I believe they all will. This promises to be the most interesting/frustrating/ celebrating/testing season in a long time. I hope as Jazz fans that we are on board with them for this ride.

    Go Jazzboys! Just wish tonight's game was on TV.

    How long have the Jazz been rebuilding now?

    When Evans said he could do better I think he will work hard on it. Going against a premier player is the best thing for him. Also looking at everybody will make a finished product. Jazz always have a handful of point guards at camp so I don't thing that is and message at all. It will take a good handful of regular season games and then some to work out the kinks..

    This is a pre-season game. The result means nothing at all. Utah beat Golden State by 23 last game, in the regular season they will probably lose to golden state by 23. It is foolish to judge a team off of a pre-season result. The pre-season is not about winning and losing at all. It is about experimenting and getting minutes for players.

    With the knocks, come the bruises. I wonder how the early going troubles are affecting Trey's psychic. I understand he only had 2 turnovers. Not bad at all. The Jazz have loaded their roster with point guards, at least for camp, and that sends the message that they are hedging their bet on Trey. Hope Trey does well, but, if not, I hope a diamond in the rough turns up from the bench. First hope, though, is for Trey. Hope he is resilient to the knocks on the court and the understandable criticism off the court. Hope he digs down inside and continues to believe in himself. He wasn't college's player of the year for nothing.

    Yup, I'm sure we will be up and down for awhile. The kids will get better, we'll have exciting wins and some ugly losses but the youth will develop and Jabari Parker could be waiting in the wings. I love Evans attitude that he feels he let the team down by not getting any rebounds in 16 minutes. It looks like he still hit 2 out of 3 of hijs shots. Bring on the Clippers!

    I actually believe that this was a pretty good showing under the circumstances. Kanter didn't play a lot because Corbin needs to see what else that he has. I'm curious if his shoulder is 100%. Therefore, they need to go slow. The Blazers are set while the Jazz are experimenting for the long haul. Exhibition games are just exhibition games after all. The score could be 100-2 and it still doesn't count. Cook from Illinois at one time was very good. I wonder just what he has left and Corbin does also. You have to look at the "forest and not the tress". Go Jazz!

    I'm sorry but I think the Jazz are going to have a lot of "learning experiences" as the season progresses. This will certainly be a rebuilding year and result in a good lottery pick for next year. Unfortunately, last year's first round pick (Trey Burke) is having a poor exhibition season......much the same as his spring camp. But, we will come out of this season with three or four good NBA players and a good base for coming years. We just need to be a bit patient.

    i think in general we would have games like this...and...i know its a bad loss....but...this is the path we chose to take...and let's support them...and let them know that we have their backs....win or lose....this is our team...let's make them feel we want them here....and once they grow this season...im sure this team would turn heads...
