Congratulations Utah/Miller, you Almost have a professional basketball team.
The jazz want to lose in the 1st round like the Spurs did last year?
Yet will never quite obtain...... It is a good dream, but a DREAM nonetheless.
This is among your best articles, Brad . . . .
The Spurs are a class act. Their teamwork, fundamentals, and good citizenship
make a stark contrast to the prima donna behavior, showmanship, and
off-the-court antics of so many players in the NBA. They've kept that team
ethos for a couple decades, through coaching changes and of course many changes
in their lineup. I'm very glad we have them around, even if we do keep
losing to them.
For the most part I have liked Ty Corbin. I think he is a good guy.From a coaching standpoint though lately I can not fathom what is going on in
the mans head.I think Kevin O'Conner should have walked down to
the bench in game 2 and fired Corbin on the spot.Talk about
dereliction of duty. Al Jefferson is laying an egg for the second game in a
row. Favors has been in and the lead is still single digits. Then he takes
Favors out and does not put him in again until the Jazz are down 20 plus!!Favors did not play but 26 minutes in the first game and now plays like
21 mins in the second game?I understand plus minus is not the
end-all-be-all stat but it is fairly clear that Favors is one of the few players
actually giving you something and only a fool would not want to play their best
players.Favors is hustling and playing hard and obviously would not
have won the game but clearly gives us our best chance of at least competing
with them.Corbin is failing on this issue.
@ Jazz SourceI second that opinion. I'm sure there has been
some bad coaching over the years, but not using Derrick Favors more in the
playoffs, against the Spurs, is some of the worst coaching I've ever
remember seeing. I think he should have been playing more all year long, but
thats just my opinion of course.
