Nuh-uh. I see what you did there, guys! Lolly gag it for 13 out of 16 quarters,
then make a nice run in the last minutes of the final game so everyone can have
a nice feeling about a horrible, waste-of-time series. Nice try. Not buying it
for a second.
I hope they bring Carol back. He was the one who sparked the rally at the end
and forced Pop to put his starters back in. The Jazz have certainly come a long
ways, and it won't be long before they are the ones at the top of the heap.
It was said in the article that the Jazz, "supposedly wasn't supposed
to be a postseason contender in this condensed NBA campaign." All I can say
is that the Jazz conclusively proved what they were not a postseason contender.
They simply were over their heads, and I fear that they will be in the same
predicament for some time.
I didn't see grit and class. I saw 4 guys who didn't want the ball, 2
guys hustling (Carol, Favors) and 1 guy learning on the job (Burke), our most
experienced defender on the bench (Bell).
