Is it me or is Carrol become quite the ball hog lately. The ball touches his
I saw something resembling these guys in January. So where were they in
February? And now that they're back (and actually doing things I
haven't seen them do), dare we hope they'll continue to do it and make
the playoffs?If they make it and play the Spurs, you still have to
pick San Antonio, but they actually match up well enough to give them a far
better tussle than last year.......so if they keep punching like
they are right now, you'd have to give them a puncher's chance. And if they pull another fade and don't have a post-season, call in
a psychiatrist, or at least I'm gonna need therapy from all this
"bipolar by proxy"..... ...And we already know some things
are going to get shaken up with all those free agents. The questions are a)
will it be at the Jazz' or the players' initiatives and b) will it be
major (new coach, big roster turnover) or relatively minor (a loss of one big
and another key player, say)?
I think the magic number is 3. Looking at the Lakers and the Mavericks schedule
and comparing it to the Jazz the rest of the way. 4-3 should get them there.
The fact they hold tiebreakers over the Lakers and Mavericks is huge. Big game at home vs. the Nuggets. Should be a good one.
Just imagine the Lakers organization looking at its roster and with Kobe, Gasol,
Nash, and Howard and not being able to make the playoffs.It would be
unwise to count Kobe and his team out but....The Jazz are inconsistent on
a good month but to be able to keep the Lakers out of the playoffs might be
their biggest claim to fame this season.
Correction, magic number is 4. (my previous post)
Holy Smoke, the Jazz are on fire. Mo has brought out the best in Curly and
Larry. I think that Dallas is the team to wastch. The Lakers just can't
play together. I hope that Crbin can rise to the occasion. The critical losses
can be laid at his doorstep. Right now, it is all about Mo and his twin Mentum.
Hold off on firing Corbin. A healthy PG makes a difference. I too wonder what
happened to Carroll. He was quite a spark and hasn't played lately.
Let's see how they do against the Nuggets and the Kosta Koufas kast off .
The Denver game will be the deciding factor.Jazz win they likely
make it. Lose and they will ultimately be out of the playoffs.The
fact that the Lakers are even close to us just magnfies what a pathetic colossal
collapse it was during March.Kanter will prove to be a big loss.
Hopefully they can sustain their improved play against Denver and other quality
@Sneaky Jimmyto be honest...i wouldnt hold off...and Mo is a shoot
first PG...if he sees an opportunity to score...he'll pull the
trigger....the difference between now and then...is they just got on a hot
shooting streak...i dont want to...be a downer...but...that's how it is...a
first round exit would prove that if we get to the playoffs
