    Some random Jazz observations:

    1. Why is Gordon Hayward starting? I mean his shooting continues to be awful. All jumpers now. IMO he is buckling under the pressure of gambling/not signing/playing for a better contract. Jazz very wisely held off

    2. This team can't defend a fire hydrant without Favors to make up for all of their poor individual defense. 0-9 without him now? Considering Miller/O'Conner/Lindsey/Corbin all announced this season "...would be about defense"...what other conclusion could we arrive at other than this season has been a failure? (Favors excluded)

    3. Kanter is Al Jefferson. He is an total defensive doormat. Good/great offense at times but refuses to defend. He is mobile but simply won't do it.

    4. Trey can run a decent pick n roll, has range to make some deep clutch shots. However, he shoots too many outside jumpers, demonstrates zero ability to penetrate/create, doesn't push the ball enough, and he can't score at the rim/get to the free throw line. All ominous signs for a supposed franchise PG.

    Let Favors heal...for a month;)

    Keep losing....get a higher pick.

    New coach next year.

    I have watched the Timberwolves play a number of times this year on NBA League Pass...In every game they played, Corey Brewer leaked out early and Kevin Love threw him one of those baseball passes....It was never a secret that Brewer and Love did this....SO....My question is, why were they able to do this successfully against the Jazz over and over again?

    Maybe my question should be, why do the Jazz continue to put up with this inept individual they have in the head coaching position? The guy is crushing the spirit out of those young men. Best example is Hayward, a good basketball player who has totally lost any shred of confidence; and it reflects itself in his performance.

    Kanter is becoming a weapon on offense, but my mom could drive the lane and score when he's playing defense. If we don't have anyone that can teach him how to play defense we really need to get Favors back and have the 2 play together so Favors can help cover up Kanters weaknesses.

    Gordon Hayward---Ouch! Please tell me Jazz management can see what all Jazz fans can see. Giving big money to him would be worse than the Kirilenko deal.

    Now is the time to fire Corbin and pick someone else. Hayward needs to forget about his upcoming marriage and play some basketball. He is absolutely horrible. Should have been traded for draft picks last week but we have Lindsey as a GM. Wake up Greg. Changes are needed today.

    Could be Rick Adelman had something to do with defeating the Jazz once again. I lucked out in not seeing the mayhem. Adelman has my total respect and of course can outcoach the entire Jazz coaching staff single handed. He has proved it for many years.

    Hayward is not good. Best thing for the Jazz would be for the Celtics to sign Gordon, the Jazz not to match and then use the money for a free agent.
