I knew the holier than thou crowd would show up sooner or later. They can't help but try to sound smart tearing other people down. If you
don't like someone's opinions just ignore them. Crybabies complaining
about crybabies.Rubio is bust. The last time he had a good game was
what, December? The nba changes fast.Sitting still is getting left
behind. And that is what is happening to the Jazz. It has been standard
operating procedure for the Jazz since the end of the Stockton/Malone era (dwill
was luck that was squandered).
Specter and Xert-Fantastic comments.Agree, bandwagon
fans take a walk. They whine and complain like they have so much invested.
We've had a awesome season. Seen some good team basketball. Rubio and
Favors, the two guys that had been mentioned in trade rumors and not being
resigned next year, have by far been the best players in the playoffs. Pull
together Jazz and lets see if we can win a couple games. Go Jazz
Specter and Xert-You guys are right. Thanks for the good assessment. I hope all of the haters just go away. it is a good, entertaining team,
without knuckleheads or drama. I prefer this team. And for all of the
"fans" who write "Should of" when they mean "Should
have," it will be nice to not read your posts.
Not sure what Jazz fans are howling about.... We brought back the same guys that
was beat last year by Houston 4-1.This is clearly on the head of
Dennis Lindsay. HE brought back these players, HE did not trade for Connelly, HE
signed a often injuried Exum to a 3 yr contract.Where's Joe
Ingles? is he really worth the 50 Million we are paying him... Got his $$$ and
now, and his production went down.They need to get right of 3-6
players on this rosters and STOP with the "best part of the team, is the
team" mantra... it clearly is not working.
To all of you giving up...beat it and dont come back. To all of you saying
we need Kemba or someone else....Rubio has been the best jazz player in the
playoffs. Win game 3 and let's see what confidence does.I
believe in these players. Winning 50 in the regular season in the West is
amazing. To those of you ripping Korver. Until the playoffs he had not
played since 3/29 against Washington. Wake up and watch a game or two.I
believe they win the 2 in utah. If so...Houston will feel the pressure of game
5. Lots of if's but I believe. On a side note...allowing Harden
to cheat is getting old. If he us so good he would do it without cheating. If
the NBA took away the blatant push off and the obvious travel...he isnt even an
Jimmer has had enough chances, he isn't NBA material. In this latest stint
with Phoenix he made 22 points on 29 shots. Shots 27% and didn't make a
single 3. Yeah I don't think he is what we need.
Rockets win by:32 points;20 points;15 points; 8
What has happened to Mr. Korver, as one of the top ten 3 point shooters in the
NBA he has disappeared during the last two games. Is it the way the Rockets are
defending or a result of his injury?
The Jazz are awesome! They had the misfortune of being matched up with a team
that is better than them. I don't think there is a team in the west that
matches up better, player for player, than Houston does against us. To
the fans who are jumping off of the bandwagon...bye bye. See you next time they
are playing well. It is just a game. I love to see them play well, but
can't quit on them when they aren't playing well. They need some
shooters. Korver would have been that guy (7 years ago). Ingles needs to let
it fly more readily.We need Kemba Walker.
I wonder if Hayward is still sad he left?hint...Boston up 2-0
The Jazz need Jimmer. He could shoot them to victory.Just give him
The Jazz are toast
Like Steve D, I have also worked with many NBA players and coaches to help get
players out of shooting slumps. At least, I think I have. Let's put it this
way: I send them my advice and they either "read and heed it" or "my
advice is rejected---and they end up feelin' disrespected" (that's
the logo on my card; my wife made it up). My specialty is left-handed shooting
from beyond the top of the key and I have come up with some tips to help Joe
Ingles. First, he needs to see video of every single shot he took.
Then he should make a compilation of all of the shots he hit as compared to the
ones he missed. Third part---and this is probably the most important part,3a. Do all of the same things you were doing when you made the shot. 3b.
Avoid doing any of the things you did on the shots you didn't make. 4. Pop some Jiffy Pop for while you are watching these compilations. It's
tasty, crunchy good and Stephen Curry eats a lot of popcorn. Wash it down with a
chilled Capri Sun. PS--Were Chris P and Jimmy Harden playing video
games on an Ipad during the 3rd quarter last night? They seemed to be having to
much fun to have been studying anything.
Where do I begin. To start with, the Utah Jazz are going to be clean swept by a
far, far superior Houston team made up of players who actually want to play
ball. That's not to say the Jazz does not play ball. They just do not play
basketball as they have proven thus far in tbis play off series. The
Jazz have been put under the heel of superior Houston team every time the two
teams have played in this series. And they have been squashed like roaches. It
is something to hear Rubio vow that the team will never give up. But my question
to Rubio is when is the team going to finally play some ball?Instead
we get pointless op eds from Kyle Korver. We get lousy defense. Lousy shooting
from the 3pt areas. And players who look like a bunch of keystone cops on the
court. And to tell you the truth, as a Jazz fan, I am ashamed of this mediocre
Jazz team. And you can bet this Jazz fan will not be buying tickets next season,
because one things for sure, the Jazz are the greatest farce on earth..
Houston just hit a ton of shots, period. They have some world class players,
but the Jazz didn't give up. I saw every player giving great effort. Sure
it would've been nice to hit shots at the same clip they did in the regular
season, but they didn't. But for those who think the Jazz quit, I
completely disagree, their body language never showed quit.
Will Quin Snyder Show Up For Game 3 or is "coach injured ?"
Can Jazz fans, management and media stop with the we develope players better
than most. Mitchell and Gobert should be All-Stars. We are just one piece away
from contending. Contending for what second round win. Jazz ought to thank
Pistons because they have company as the worst playoff team in the first
round.Mitchell and Gobert are good, but this series shows they are
far from elite. You can pad stats in the regular season to make you look great.
Playoffs shows what you trully are. Snyder is the most overrated coach in the
league, not even in the top ten.
How can we tell if they do quit? They were done in the 1st quarter last night.
The only reason this wasn't another 32+ point blowout is that the Rockets
bench was playing at the end of the 3rd quarter and the entire 4th quarter. Now,
maybe they'll stop pretending that they have to make some "minor
adjustments" to beat Houston and start all over. By now, they only question
is, will they at least win one game?
I’ve worked with NBA players and coaches to help players get out of
shooting slumps. Here’s what Donavan needs to do: Have the Jazz
videographer put together a 20-minute “highlight” video of Donovan
repeatedly making 3 pt shots. Then have Donovan watch this video alone on a
large screen in a darkened room — right before practice, after practice
and and an hour before a game. This will help him reestablish rhythm and
confidence. I’ve had this work for players especially during the playoffs
when doubt leads to tension and tension throws off rhythm and then leads to a
downward spiral of lost confidence and more increased tension. Try it. What have
you got to lose?
To: Utah Jazz,Where are you guys? I showed up here in Houston on
Friday and could have desperately used some help the last few days. It's
been a long, miserable few days and things went as bad as expected considering I
have been here by myself, with the exception of Royce and Ricky showing up for a
bit today! I'm on my way home and we go back to work Saturday night, Really
hope to see a few of you there,
Sincerely: DerrickP.S. has anyone seen Joe? I'm starting to worry
that maybe he got lost :(
Utah quit after 5 minutes in the 1st.Houston is a MUCH better team.
I smell a sweep!The Jazz should of traded Exum, Favors, and Rubio
for a 3rd piece to add to the Gobert and Spider Mitchell foundation.When does Lillard's contract expire?
These two games have been just about too much to watch! For the life of me I
wish i could make sense of the fact that the Jazz weren't willing to part
with Exum, and they wanted Favors in the deal for Connelly instead. Ha, and at
the end of the season jazz fans will, once again, say Favors needs to go because
he's not a good fit even tho he is the only guy to show up both games! Hate
to break it to all of you that think that way but nobody can shoot a 3 on this
team when the pressure is on. Crowder isn't a better fit! Just look at the
numbers. Favors was the only + player in game 1 and was our best player last
night. Rubios numbers were ok but Houston didn't even guard him from the 3.
Connelly wouldn't be enough but it would of been a step in the right
direction. Just ask Houston if an over-the-hill washed up pg. can be of use.
