    Richie, who do you want for a coach? I think you were also the one that said Jimmer needed to be added to the Jazz so that Hayward would have a traveling buddy. What does that mean? what's wrong with the team members he travels with now? I'm really trying to figure out what's driving these observations. Corbin may not be the coach of the future, but I think he is doing the best he can with this group of youngsters. For the most part they have been very competitive ever since they got a real point guard. If they continue to get better the Jazz will miss out on a very deep draft class. This is the year for developing a coach and young players. I beginning to like Corbins versatility over Sloans strict substitution patterns. Jerry seldom gave rookies or young players many minutes at all.

    The really good news is that the Jazz won. The bad news is that they are close to being out of last place in the Western Conference. There goes that draft pick.

    The Jazz are now 8 and 9 for their last 17 ....They were a lead pipe cinch for the worst record in the league after starting 1 and 14, but this surge has them with the 4th worst record....Bittersweet to consider that the guys are really getting after it, and at the same time, blowing their shot at one of the top players in the upcoming draft.

    A number of folks have accused the Jazz of going in the tank in order to get a high draft choice...This recent 8 out of 17 should stop that talk.

    Richie....You want Corbin gone when they play badly and now as he is getting the team in the right direction you want him gone. I just don't understand. You just don't understand what it takes to keep all the players on the same page. Give credit where credit is due. Good work Jazz, keep it up!

    This is the first full game I've seen in a while, and a few things stood out. Hayward, Favors, Burke and Burks played solid ball while Evans and Williams had some good moments, too. Burks definitely deserves more playing time...he is much more under control than last year. Way to develop, Alec. Favors, as I've said before many times, is well suited to play center, often challenging the other team's center at the rim. Kanter played as if he had no lift at all. I wonder if he is playing hurt. In the second half he did shoot better, but I worry how he gets stuffed so often in the post. Hayward had a fine, all-round game but still missed too many jumpers. He, Favors, Burks and Burk are sure fun to watch. Tomorrow will be really tough. Go Jazz!

    Great game but Corbin still has to go.
