An all-around game for Al Jefferson tonight. If he plays defense like he did
against the Bucks then the Utah Jazz are going to win a lot of games. Love the
Whats with the limited minutes from Kanter? C.J. right back to casting away and
inconsistency after a fair game the night before, he just doesn't have much
humility and smarts. Could that be from lack of formal education or is it
genetic? Evans gets 1 min, why? Hayward was flaying around some more. Settle
down Gordon and quit the A.K. resembelance. Jefferson's "black hole"
game was working last night, look out when it is not. I didn't see any team
improvement last night and Coach is praticing today? Give them a breather for 1
day Ty, then get after it Thursday. Lots of question marks yet!
would't be too excited about al having a good game with their front court out.
Even though it was the Bucks, and a depleted Bucks team at that, I'm still
impressed with the tenacity. Our big guys were scrapping to get in the paint
and not just shooting 15-18 foot jumpshots. The first few games, we weren't
even trying to enter the paint. So this is progress.When the Jazz
play tougher and longer teams, we'll still need to step up our outside shooting.
Although our littles were open on their jumpers, thanks to the inside game, our
littles still have a low shooting percentage.Makes me wonder why the
Jazz haven't played against more zone defenses.
I'd love to see Favors assert himself on the defensive end like he did against
the Bucks and his offense will come. Being a major defensive presence like he
was last night ignites the team. Favors offense may take some time and come
along slowly but his defense could be a major force if he asserts himself on
that end of the floor. Has anyone heard how the players who went out with
injuries are doing?
Great job Al on getting rebounds and scoring but 0 assist? C'mon we need you to
be able to find cutting guys (doesnt happen when al gets the ball anyways). He
will be a bigger threat when he can get 3 or 4 assist a game every once in
awhile to keep defenders honest
Talk, talk, talk.This guy is the reincarnation of Boozer. Here he
is giving credit to Favors for playing defense saying he and the rest of the
team "...just need to do it..." If I am not mistaken he
said the same thing before the season and here we are 2 preseason and 6 regular
season games in and Big Al is still telling us "..what he still needs to
just do". He also said he had been in Santa Barbara and was
"...in the best shape of his career" and yet he mentions he is just
getting into game shape.This guy is an offense-stagnating disaster.
Sure he he can get it going offensively some times but he makes absolutely
nobody on his team better and never passes the ball to anyone. He is all about
himself and his stats and every team he has been on its the same
thing....mediocre/bad while he gets his stats and plays no defense.We're tired of hearing what Big Al needs to do and we would love to see it but
we never will because he won't change. He keeps forcing shots
through double/triple teams while teammates stand.
