    Conley has been injured for long periods of time in his career, he’s a better scorer than Rubio but his three point percentage isn’t that good. Rubio is a better rebounder, better assist man, (if the Jazz could shoot), and Conleys contract outrageous. Who is healthy and available that’s a true point guard?

    You could say that Conley showed last night why the Jazz were so eager to acquire him. When the Jazz were just four points down with several minutes left, it was Conley who kept the Grizzlies ahead with his patented teardrop shots. He was clutch.

    (Still, the Grizzlies' asking price for him was too much).

    Memphis owns the Jazz.

    Rudy has not been playing at all like an all-star- oputplayed by better centers... his fumble fingers have returned, more dropped passes than blocks or dunks. Fortunately, Favors has gotten better and been able to fill in the gap.

    Not mentioned, Favs--who has been playing so well--seemed to not come to the arena to play last night.
    Also--Another night off for Rubio. When you combine Rubio's nights off--with his off nights, you get a ratio of him helping the team for about a third of their scheduled games. He is a very talented player but he takes time to get used to and there is no night after night after night of gelling with his team.
    The Jazz have been seriously hurt this season by the injury bug and Rubio, Neto and Exum. Last night was an obvious example of why solid and experienced point guard play is necessary. Spidah got his points, but he did not bring the rest of the team into the flow of the offense. The Jazz gave up on Rodney Hood when he simply didn't seem to be able to stay healthy and on CJ Miles when it seemed that he simply was not going to get much better. Dante Exum has really not shown as much growth as CJ displayed and he seems even less capable than Hood of staying healthy. Ditto Neto. These long stretches of re-acclimating due to staggered lineups are what keep the Jazz from being great.
    Please---tougher players and players who can take care of themselves. Theyre out there.

    Pathetic loss
