@water rocket:Your points are certainly valid. Also, I think
Spoelstra hit the nail on the head, the Jazz have spent the first 2 months of
the season living out of a hotel. A home stand for them has been 2 games. The
travel coordinator for this team should make the all star team. The rest of
December looks rugged but in the Western Conference every team but Phoenix could
be the first seed. It reminds me of the old black and blue division of the NFL.
When the Jazz make up their minds to play, they can be really good, but when
they think all they need to do is show up, or they want to play "one man
show" ball, then they really struggle. Maybe they think they can turn it on
like last season? But last year was an anomaly, and to repeat that feat is
highly unlikely. At the rate they are playing right now, they will miss the
playoffs this year. For a team that was supposed to take up right where they
left off last year, they sure have fizzled. A good game here and there does not
make a good season!
