    Best Jazz analysis I've seen on Des News in a long time! Garrett looked strong, but hadn't thought of him being a one and done type player. Thank you for opening my eyes and helping me see the glorious light!

    @man in charge

    Garrett is not the long term solution for starting pg. But he could maybe be a role player to give 10-12 minutes per game.

    @captainL I agree. He also has good size at 6'4"

    I like what I saw in Garrett, to me the difference between Garrett and Gaines is Garrett is a pass first point and Gaines was a shoot first point. I like how Garrett saw the floor, created good passing angles and was unselfish. IMO Garrett has a good chance of making the team better, time will tell. His ability in the pick and roll was incouraging and made shots for Kanter and Favors easier. Let's hope it continues and gets better.

    He is no long term solution at point guard. Lets not get ahead of ourselves.

    Finally a win! Wow, I was wondering if/when it would ever happen. Interesting background on Garrett. Hopefully he will have a positive impact on the team!!!

    To Jazz management:

    If he pans out, please do not make a mistake and let him be stolen by Portland, or some other "big money" team. Protect your asseets! I'll have to give you credit - you tried to do that with Heyward, but his agent wants 'big dollars". We'll see how that works out next spring.
