    This is a light schedule that the Jazz have the capability of turning into the Bataan Death March if they choose to go to sleep for entire quarters at a time. If they play tough d throughout--they may be afforded the opportunity of slowly getting Dante up to speed without too much damage done. Kudo's to Raul Neto. Once again--significant time away and he comes back and not only doesn't do anything to harm you, but also actually contributes well. He was beautiful last night and was better at creating down low than even Rubio.

    Dante simply seems to take a loooong time to get back up to speed following time away and the Jazz can simply not afford to allow the remainder of the season to be about building Dante's confidence. I think Coach Q is handling this really well. Bring Dante along very slowly. If he comes in and turns the ball over or upsets the flow of the offense, take him out. He is a fine defender, but the Jazz have enough problems with lack of offense as it is. The back up point guard job should belong to Raul until Dante can contribute valuable minutes on both ends without making rookie mistakes.

    All the heckler fan did was lite a fire under Westbrook, Kind of like pocking a stick at a buffalo.

    Well, the lighter schedule means fewer chances for a fan to embarrass the organization and the state, so that's good...
