The entire league has abandoned offense rebounds, as a price to getting back on
defense. It is no secret. All the coaches are doing it.
The business of rebounding continues to befuddle me! Shot goes up and every one
runs the other way! Stop the fast break is now a rather well worn joke!
Rebounding on the defense is a team and effort proposition! This is becoming
rather an ingrained problem! Make layups !
I don't know that any quarter of that game was acceptable. It's that
old Jekyll and Hyde thing again.
I have missed watching many games this year, but what I've noticed this
year is a lack of AGGRESSIVE rebounding. I've not kept any sort of
stats, but it seems to me that there is no effort 65-70% of the times we (Jazz)
take a shot 10' or more from the basket.I wonder if a reporter might
ask Quin if that translates to "thinking" the shot will be made at that
percentage rate. I know spacing is very important to increasing the
chances of a made shot, but as one that remembers the game as a "non-contact
sport" with THE best athletes (overall) in the world, I find myself dismayed
by the lack of energy expended by our guys for the potential offensive rebound
when a shot is taken.I wonder ........ "how far down the priority list
is offensive rebounding?"
Had to listen to the game today on the radio. From I heard was The jazz had so
many many shots. They just weren't going down. Pratice should
be only shoot arounds. They were getting the wide open shots.????? Are they
really suffering from bad shooters . Weird?
Got gassed in the middle of the third and stopped playing d throughout the 4th.
I Jazz needed a short, volume-shooting 2-guard that doesn’t play defense,
why didn’t they just sign Jimmer?
If I want to see shooting this bad, I can just go over to my local stake center
on Thursday nights and watch it for free.If you didn’t notice,
Derrick, the Magic were playing at the same altitude as you. And I suppose the
41+ “conditioning” games the Jazz play every year at 4200 feet
don’t help against a team that plays the same number of games at sea
