    Maybe that's the way they were taught to play D by the current coaching staff?...the past years we saw how good these two kids play on D...and when they started...it seems that their pick and roll d was gone...im not sure...but im thinking its what they were told or coached to do....i really hope we can get a new coach...i think that is half the solution...including getting Jabari and McAdoo

    Only one turnover for Burke. He dribbled too much at times and took a few ill-advised quick shots but hopefully he should learn over time and take better attempts.

    One of the most positive aspects of it all is he wanted the ball at the end of the game and was not afraid to take that big three that pretty much sealed it for the Jazz. Better than that he actually hit it.

    Our bigs need to make the effort to play better pick and roll defense. Right now it is just pathetic and often its detrimental to even have them on the floor. Even though Jeremy Evans gets pushed underneath the basket at times, his hustle and effort and tremendously better defense makes all the difference guarding the high pick and roll.

    Our guards are screened off at the 3 point line and it is game over from there when Favors and Kanter are on the floor. Its just not working. We can't be a good defensive team if that is the effort they are going to make. They sag back into the paint and their PG has our big one on one at that point. Layup drill.
