The Jazz have been winning games and playing better lately, and have a better
home schedule coming up in the future. This all makes me happy and puts me in a
good mood so I have decided to lay of criticizing Corbin's coaching
decisions and Marvin Williams ineffective playing for the night. So enjoy the
night off boys but I'm afraid you're both going to be drawing my
criticism again soon because you're both slowing down the progress of this
This was one of the Jazz's better games. Everyone will forget the weakness
of the opponent. The Jazz are on cruise control. The heroes were Favors and
Kanter the stars of the future. Foye once again was devastating with his long
range shots. The Jazz still need a good young point guard who can feed the
devastaters. Now, what will you do about Jefferson and Millsap. Losing both
would bring a great deal of cap room. It looks now like the best move would be
to let both go and feed the rock to Favors and Kanter with resigning Foye and
letting him draw out the defense. They should have signed Dragic for a lot of
different reasons which include changing the chemistry of the team to its
maximum potential. The problem is that AJ is playing so well but can you afford
to up his salary even more with a long term deal.
Americanvet, I could not agree with you more...Corbin is definitely slowing down
the progress of this young team. Unfortunately, this is going to bite them in
the rear come playoffs. He lacks the coaching skills needed to take them to that
next level. Their raw talent will only take them so far.I'm a
bit concerned with Hayward's play. He's brilliant one game and awful
the next. He's incredibly inconsistent and that is so frustrating to watch
at times. I'm worried that he's just a slightly better version of C.J.
Miles...but just as streaky. I love Favor's tenacity and the fact that he
never backs down, but he's sloppy with his fouling and still has a way to
go. Foye has been the surprise pickup this offseason and has been pretty solid
from beyond the arc, really opening up the inside game for our bigs. It's
interesting though that the most consistent bench player so far has been Demarre
Carroll...Ya, I know, blah, blah, blah. Sorry, I had to vent.
A win is a win.. Jazz would still do better with the youngins instead of Watson
getting so many minutes.
Good win, hopefully they can pad their record with this next homestretch of
As a disgruntled Celtic fan(Jazz are my 2nd fav) we would like to take your
Cap'n off your hands for Rondo & Bass. Rondo could feed your resident
beasts a steady diet of leather while Bass could come off the bench for Milsap
w/out complaint. Your youths' would begin to thrive on schedule and your
defense would improve instantly(minus AJ). What say you?
Tomo-Sounds good, except for one thing the Jazz are located in Utah.
I don't think Rondo would be willing to play here and certainly
wouldn't be happy playing here.
@millsapfani understand that this was a down game for Hayward...but
you cant compare him to CJ...Hayward averaged 14pts from late december till
today...CJ couldn't even do that...
Re: "concerned with Hayward's play. He's brilliant one game and
awful the next. He's incredibly inconsistent and frustrating to watch at
times. I'm worried that he's just a slightly better version of
C.J." by Millsapfan......first, yes, a mystery. One one hopes
is solved soon, but at least he plays hard, if not always as intelligently as he
does sometimes even when doesn't have his shot.And second, CJ
certainly turned in a vintage CJ performance that reminded me why I was so happy
to hear he was gone, gone, gone... ...looking brilliant for a few minutes, but
all "clang, clang, clang goes the trolley" thereafter.Third,
AJ is not exactly old yet, and you can see he's really working to improve
multiple aspects of his game - defense, passing, speed, team offense, free
throws, moving, getting up and down the court, not ball-bogarting, etc. Dumb to
lose him just as he starts to peak.Finally, Corbin IS also
maddeningly inconsistent himself, but IS beginning to act like he's in
charge and has a glimmer of a plan as to what he wants to do about that now that
