We can all continue to ignore this. I will not. 3 Balls. Over and Over and
Over again. Frye shot was a miracle. You take that away most of these 3s were
too obvious. Corbin never makes adjustments. Even when the players get aware
they need to cover shooters, and make some hustle plays here and there, it never
lasts. Really Gordon and Paul had the most complete games give or take a missed
assignment here and there. Miles for all he scored gave up as many. It does
not take super intelligence to know Dudley, Frye and Redd will cradle the line
and they know Corbin and Sloan before will not come out and have shooters come
out. The season now basically over. The question what was AJ doing way out on
Nash, and no one came up to help. You really wonder sometimes. It is sad
because talent wise, we should be able to compete with most teams especially
Phoenix. However, Gentry is a better Coach
Stick a fork in them! Their done!
C'mon coach Corbin. Do you really want the ball in CJ Miles' hands in
a close one? Why were Tinsley and Burks on the bench in the critical moments of
the game? Bad coaching lost this one. Oh yeah, defense of the perimeter was
awful too. Again, a couple of better defenders were observers at crunch time.
Paul Millsap you are a clown! To make a statement like "especially to a
team we know we can beat" Wrong wrong, the Suns have had you'r number 8
times in a row! Go Suns!
Al Jefferson missed more defensive rotations than he has the entire season! You
had to know the minute he came back in the game that the Suns would drive right
to the hole. C J and Jefferson cannot defend, at all! The first tee minutes of
the game Jefferson looked so lost that he just walked away from the basket when
he got beat on the pick and roll. (Before the play was finished). When the pick
and roll was ran at Miles side of the floor, it was even worse. Both C J and
Jefferson standing at the three point line watching not one, but both of there
guys escort the ball to the hoop. It was the very reason Millsap got two early
fouls trying to fill the void left by AJ. I'm glad they lost.
Maybe they can start to develop some of the talent that is being wasted on this
team. Favors, Burks, Kanter. Millsap needs to stay, AJ and CJ need to go!
Done and Done.
Todd I agree Pheonix is a team that is well coached, the Jazz however are a team
that pretty much gets out coached on a nightly basis. Corbin needs to place
coaching princibles before personalities and that includes winning.Fortydam I watched the same game you did again. My throat is raw from yelling
at big Al to play some defense. I wish we had a coach with enough backbone to
sit big Al until he starts defending, the way Theobeau did with Boozer to
introduce him to the defensive end of the floor. Favors had a very good game
going last night that was cut short in favor of big Al. Favors pulled down 8
boards in only 15 minutes of play compared to big Als 7 boards in 37 minutes.
Favors went 4-7 from the field for 9 points and played solid on BOTH ends of the
floor. He also recorded 2 blocked shots. All I can say is go Golden
State at this point.
I was there last night and I guarantee you I didn't go home with a broken
heart. :) It was just loads of fun even being in the building and enjoying all
the cumulative energy of the fans, hearing the great sound system and seeing
Steve Nash a long time fave player of mine.... Of course it would have been nice
to witness a victory and claimed a free big mac today, but, I don't need
the cholesterol and well..... Thank goodness it is only a game making people
Nate Mcmillan is a better coach than Corbin...and people would say..that on
critical times..you go with vets...i would disagree...instead of vets...go with
the players that are playing well...it would have made a huge difference...for
the two close calls...we would've won those if Favors Kanter and Burks
played more...the only positive thing here is...Hayward is playing well...very
well...underrated player...and if any of the young guns wont get resigned or
being traded...probably its time to move teams....
I feel like a little kid at Disneyland... I'm loving it.
It's time for the Jazz to admit that Corbin is not up to the job. I have
wanted to see Favors, Milsap, and Jefferson play together. It is the only way to
get Favors the minutes he deserves. In desperation it was finally tried against
Portland and it worked great. So of course Corbin doesn't go to it last
night. I could write a book on the mistakes Corbin continues to make. For us to
have any future we need to go a different direction. Corbin needs to be fired.
But of course we all know the position of head coach for the Jazz is a lifetime
position. The Jazz will never fire anybody.
Pathetic thats all I can say. Greg you have 5 players you can let go and replace
next year and the complete coaching staff. Step up and show you care, don't
let this ridiculous crap exist. Corbin still says the games starts are not good.
What does he do about it? Nothing! No starting of different players, no letting
players know it's not going to happen when they don't give effort and
energy to begin, just more talk. Wow! Players to get rid of are trade big Al
& Bell, don't resign Miles, Watson, and Evans and restock thru the
draft trades and free agents. I agree with above commentor, how about McMillan?
