    Basketball is a simple game. In order to win the game you have to make baskets. The Jazz didn't make their shots so they lost the game.

    It is called fatigue. It happens to the best of athletes. Forget about it. The Jazz are a vastly improved team.

    David H:

    It was clearly written that this was the Jazz's worst scoring night OF THE SEASON (caps not included in the story) and their worst shooting game in history.

    Thanks for reading!

    Its very simple. Last night the basket on the Jazz end of the floor was smaller then the ball. They then switched baskets at half time. I don't know why the rest of you couldn't see that.

    Before the game, the Jazz had dropped to being tied for 4th in the lottery draft with the Celtics and were going higher. If they are going to do badly, there is going to be a big problem develop. Actually, they have gotten very close to the pack and could rise to 10th in the draft. It is obvious that they will cut loose about 5 veterans and sign some free agents. The general manager really has some juggling to do.

    Stuff happens. The Heat just lost 3 in a row so every team has off nights. The Jazz played 3 games on the road without their leading scorer blowing out the Pistons, giving the Spurs, one of the best teams in the NBA all they could handle, and then one bad game at Minnesota. At the beginning of the season the same road trip would have resulted in 3 blowout losses so we are seeing big strides in this team.

    Who said they're not trying to tank.

    "We were pretty flat." Pretty much describes 75% of jazz games.

    Energy schmenergy. They could have played the exact same game, exact same sets, exact same offense and defense, and if they make 50% of their shots instead of 28%, they win the game in a rout. Then, everybody's talking about the high energy they had on a back-to-back schedule. Does it show more energy to make baskets than to miss them?

    On June 7, 1998 the Jazz only scored 54 points in game 3 of the NBA finals. The Jazz made 30% of their field goals. The article is correct with respect to field goal percentage, but misleading as far as the worst offensive game the Jazz have ever played.
