Well, Corbin is finally doing what we saw he needed to do a whole lot sooner.
That said I don't have any illusions because these decisions need to be
made on a case by case basis.The dilemma is that we are getting
devoured inside the paint. I put most of the blame squarely on Jefferson for
his horrific pick and roll defense. He gives our guard absolutely no chance to
recover. He does not step out to make Parker take a step up around so he just
turns the corner and then wreaks havoc in the paint.You would think
since Jefferson does not step out that he would at least get back to defend the
rim. Nope. He is worthless at both. And while we are at it lets not forget he
has a current average of .3 free throws per game!! No typo, .3! This from your
low post player.Back to my point. Millsap will have a hard time
defending their fast players at the 3 point line. Offensively Diaw has owned
Millsap. Spurs shoot 41% during regular season and are shooting 40% so far
against us. Pick your poison!
I agree with JazzSource, the article implies that the Spurs bigs/Duncan are the
reason for the disparity in the paint scoring, but the culprit is Parker and the
lack of interior and PR D. The collapsing "help" D is then allowing
wide open perimeter shots. That is why when Favors is in, the paint
D increases dramatically, allowing the wings/guards a better chance of defending
their man/assignment. Usually, Favors can't score as well as
Al, but in this series Al is AWOL on both ends of the floor.
Too little too late. Thanks Corbin.
FINALLY!!!How many weeks has this been apparent?Ty's spin on not starting the BIG lineup was poor defense on 3 point
shots. Now, when he starts them it's because of defense.The
Jazz probably don't win, but at least the starting lineup will return next
year. A little late, but the Jazz are at least building for the future.Jazzaholic
"The Jazz probably don't win, but at least the starting lineup will

building for the future they'd have played the kids more all season. You
know, like OKC has done.We have no way of knowing whether or not the
Jazz would've made the playoffs giving the kids more time. We can
reasonably believe the young players would've progressed more with
Coach Ty...its a little too late dont you think?...if you sincerely wanted to
win...you should have done that from the start...tweaking your successful roster
that got you a playoff spot at playoff time...shows lack of trust and commitment
to your players...I hope the management sees this and make a coaching change and
change the culture in Utah...
