    I have been very critical of Corbin, and I remain so. His substitution pattern last night almost cost the Jazz a game they had in the bag.....I only mention this because there were a couple of times last night when the Jazz appeared to actually be running sets....This indicates someone is doing a little coaching....I congratulate whoever it is....The sets were clean, and yielded good shots.
    Haywood's performance was monumental, and overshadowed his 4 turnovers...but...The team had far too many turnovers from bad passes...They need to study the film on these. Most were passes which were thrown at too great a distance, giving defenders time to cut in front of the receiver and steal the ball.
    They are now playing.500 ball over the last 22 games. This team is competitive, and Corbin needs to start phasing Jefferson and Williams out of it. It would take a total miracle for them to make the playoffs. These two will be gone next year...Evans and Kanter need the court time. Determine whether or not Kanter or Favors will ever be able to play the 4.

    Shows how important a bench is. Without two starters Thunder were not much of a problem.
