I think the results of this game somewhat show the value of DeMarre Carroll to
the Jazz. When he was playing previously, they were winning. And when he
didn't play in this last game, they didn't. He was especially missed
in the 2nd half when the Jazz were out-hustled and out-defensed in losing their
halftime lead. And that's especially what Carroll brings to the team...
lots of hustle and a tenacious defense. Overall, there is much reason to
feel optimistic about the younger Jazz players from what they showed in the
Summer league play, as they finished with a winning record. It was a learning
process that allowed them to continue growing as players. With the player
changes made recently, there is every reason to expect an improved and very
entertaining season from the Jazz.

on their time as USA Select Team Members...
