I am not a coach, but does anyone else think with 14 seconds left and the Jazz
ahead by 3, it would have been a good idea to foul before the Hawks made the
tying 3 pointer and sending us into another overtime?
These types of games are usually won by coaches who trust their bench, and that
was true in this game. Jazz with 5 players playing 50+ minutes, Hawks 3.
Ironic, given the depth of the Jazz bench.It'll be interesting
to see how the Jazz handle the fatigue going forward.
A great game and I don't mean to second guess--but I would have been so
tempted during that third or fourth overtime to throw in Burks, Favors and
another quick player and run them off their feet. At least for a couple of
minutes. The Jazz will learn from this one and I think this contest will
translate into more road toughness and possibly playoff road wins. Tough loss,
Jazz--but you have nothing to hang your heads about! A classic.
Ty Corbin showed some serious weakness with his coaching abilities in this one.
He had fresh players on the bench that should have been substituted in for the
fatigued first unit. This loss, and the one that will occur tonight because of
too much playing time, will be on the coach. Frustrating.
@ BethanySometimes yes. Sometimes no. If it is against a good
player (Joe Johnson will fit this category) it is dangerous because he may
anticipate it and put up a 3 point shot during the foul and go to the line.
You make that foul, it's coaching 101. And you play the fresh legs that got
you back in the game.
This loss was solely on the Coach… When you have totally fatigued players
and only score 2 pts. in the first OT. You would think fresh legs would be
helpful…even one or two at a time least for the first min or two. to give
the starters a breather. I kept yelling at the TV "Put in Favors, burks,
Tinsley" I guess he didn't hear me. Corbin dropped the ball…
@ Tyler..I agree we don't want to foul anyone in the process of
shooting a 3. But, we re-watched that last possession several times and there
was plenty of time to foul the dribbler before he threw the ball to Joe Johnson.
It seems like we have lost too many games in that same situation.I also
agree that substituting our young players with energy at the end may have
helped. Why was Jefferson trying to guard Johnson from the 3 point line?
This loss is on the coach!! Why does the future of the Jazz sit on the bench
during all 4 overtimes?
Playing a tough team on the road in overtime, I agree with Corbin (it looks like
I'm in the minority) that you play the guys that have experience. I'm
a huge fan of the young guns we have on the team but I like the experience that
Jefferson and Millsap bring in a situation like this. Atlanta was the team that
should have been tired with this the 3rd game in 3 nights. It wasn't until
Big Al and Sap fouled out in the last overtime that we finally lost. Hopefully
our young guns can take on more minutes in the next two games against lesser
teams and we can get back to winning again. I also have always been a believer
like Hot Rod used to say to foul when you're up by 3 and only a few seconds
remain in the game. It would have been easy to foul before Atlanta was taking
the shot so you put them on the line for 2 free throws and not risk them making
the 3 (which they did)
I might expand on my last comments to add that personally, I would have liked to
see Burks instead of Miles in the game in overtime because I think he plays with
more intelligence and has a better overall game right now than Miles does. That
said, I played a little basketball in school like many of you probably have, but
none of us has the knowledge and NBA experience that Corbin and the coaching
staff have regarding how to coach this team so it sounds like crazy talk when
everyone here professes to know better than Corbin how to run the team
Awful coaching by Ty Corbin.Continued to play the players who were
obviously totally worn out and missing point blank shots.2 made
baskets from 7 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter until the end of the 1st
overtime and Corbin contines to play the same players???Seriously?Wow is all I have to say. Despite the blunders they
still had chances to win and likely would have if he would not have stuck with
all these players who could not buy a basket. Favors should have been on the
floor for alot more time considering the circumstances.
Jazz lost . period.
The Jazz should be congratulated as a team. However I noted that in OT 3 at the
1:00 minute mark, Miles took a 24 ft 3 with a lead of two after only 14 seconds
of possession. This was not good strategy. In OT 4 at the 0:41 mark, Miles
missed a 4 ft shot and then missed his rebound shot. Small things sink a ship.
The Jazz just have to tighten up a few loose ends to be a complete team.
Beating a dead horse here but Corbin's substitution patterns are
unbelievable.Tired people don't play defense, hit shots and/or
make good decisions.Terry M. Haimes
So Jefferson and Harris miss 2 games against Lakers and Minnesota, Young guys
win both games with huge nights from Kanter, Favors and Burkes and Corbin
doesn't have the guts to put even one of them on the floor in 4 OT's?
I don't get it.Kanter has 17 points and 9 rebounds in 22
minutes and has averaged less than 10 minutes a game since? It's as if
Corbin is trying to ruin his confidence.
@redcliffsyep you are in the minority...and i think...the Coach blew
this one...i mean come on...its common sense...you have how many players suited
up to play?...how come you cant play them? it just shows corbin's lack of
confidence to his bench players...which could be his downfall...since you always
want to remind your players that you have confidence in their skills and you are
willing to throw them in...at that situation...because you as a coach know how
good they are as players...that being said...i really hope we could get adelman
to coach the jazz...
