    I can just see the Lakers game: tied 180 to 180 at the end of the the first half. Defense only wins games.

    You are exactly right. I couldn't have said it any better. It is amazing to me how many fans want to see the Jazz win at this point in the season, when the one and only thing they should be shooting for now is more ping-pong balls. I do hope they catch Orlando for the 3 spot. Unfortunately, Trey Burke's last second winning shot may have put the 3rd worst record out of reach. If the Jazz had lost that game to Orlando, they would be tied with them for the 3rd worst record now. I believe 3rd worst record has about 12 % chance at #1 pick, and 4th worst has about 8 % chance. Hopefully the Jazz won't win another single game this year, there are a few other teams who would love to move up in the lost column including the Pelicans, Lakers and Celtics. The Jazz play the Pelicans on Friday, and the Lakers on the 14th I believe. Those games have me worried. Please Jazz do whatever you need to to lose, and get the best pick possible in this once in a decade loaded draft.

    the Jazz don't need momentum, they need ping-pong balls. There isn't one good thing that can come from winning a game from here out. I know the players want to win, that's great, they should, but losing is what the franchise needs right now.

    If things continue to go this way, we might even catch Orlando for the 3 spot. Keep it up, no more winning!!

    Build momentum for what? the Jazz have the 4th worst record in the league, and could finish even worse. The season is about over. This year is a diasater, but like Philly, we all knew going in that it would be.
