Maybe the coach noticed. What do you think? Do you think he can remember to do
it again? Lol
As Clint Eastwood stated in "Heartbreak Ridge", what we have is a
dilemma. Favors has been playing great and now Kanter has a monstrous game
albeit against a weak team. The "kiddie corps" also came off the bench.
Carroll from Mizzou performed with an injury. It would appear that AJ and MSap
are expendanble with their 15 mill and 8 mill wanting 15 salaries. With the
Lakers making their charge and the Rockets playing well, there is a good chance
that the Jazz fall out of the playoff picture. As Shakespeare said in one of his
plays, "do it and do it quickly".
Love the Kandy-Man (Kanter)
Amazing what a little spunk and defense can do. Starters watching?
I'm still trying to figure out Coach Corbin's strategy is in the way
he's playing Hayward. He needs to start and get breaks in between his
minutes instead of coming off the bench and playing 13-15 straight minutes in
each half. He clearly lost his legs and his shot towards the end the other night
in the over-time loss.
Great game and fun to watch as the youth seem interested in defense. The Bobcats
had a hard time getting any easy shots because the Jazz were blocking, stealing
and deflecting the ball all night. The one negative was all the unforced
turnovers that would have killed us against a good team. However, it's not
unexpected to see a lot of turnovers because the core 4 don't play enough
together coach, especially Kanter.For all you Marvin defenders with
your "the Jazz don't run any plays for him" excuse, how do you
explain last night's game. The highest scoring players are injured and we
have a starting point guard that does not score so you would think Marvin would
try to carry the load a little. On this night he scores one stinking point.
Meanwhile Carroll gets 19 and even Evans gets 14 points playing the same
position. Memo to Marvin, try hustling a little and see if it works for you like
it does for the other small forwards on the team. Memo to Corbin, don't
credit yourself with that win. You were finally forced to do what everyone has
been begging you to do all along.
So the Jazz have struggled basically all year long in first and third quarters,
which is when the starters get the bulk of their minutes. The Jazz won by 30
last night because of stellar DEFENSE and running the ball up the court.
I'm so optimistic about our 6 core players!(Kanter, Favors, Foye, Carrol,
Americanvet is right about Marvin Williams. I feel bad for him because he seems
like a great person off the court, but he is just not cutting it. And the excuse
of not running plays for him is not legitimate because Carrol is an instant game
changer at that position (no plays are ran for him) and Hayward is the same way.
We have no need for him on this young team.
I wish no ill will to Jefferson and Millsap but I wouldn't mind seeing
those 2 rest their injuries another few games and let the young bucks get big
minutes on this upcoming road trip. It's not that I expect them to win
more road games with this lineup but the more chances they get on the floor the
more likely they will get expanded roles. If it wasn't for all the point
guard injuries we've had I know Burks would still be getting dnp's
like he did earlier in the season and now Corbin has been forced to see he has
real talent. It seems Corbin can't see the vision unless he's forced
into it.@ Millsap fanYou're right about that aspect of
Marvin Williams. I've heard he is one of the nicest players in the league
and will usually even say yes sir and no sir to sports reporters durning
interviews.I know I'm always hard on him in my comments but I really
respect him as a person
@americanvetsad to say...but corbin would still be blind...once the
vets come in...we all know where his loyalty is at...and he would probably the
first to defend and say to bring back big al and paul back...i dont want to be
the start of a negative vibe here...but once those two stays...the core
4...would probably be gone....
