Trey Burke had a very nice debut...Jeremy Evans had a very nice return to
action.....but the story from that game was, Whatever Happened to Gordon
Hayward???In my long lifetime, I have played a lot of basketball, I have
coached a lot of basketball, and I have watched a lot of basketball both in
person and on TV....and I have NEVER before seen such an abysmal shooting
performance in a live game.....not at any level. When one considers that his
only made shot was a layup, it only increasesthe wonder.The kid
didn't play a bad floor game....He had a career high 11 assists....but his
shooting was awful.....Something's wrong there.
Burke looked ok.... Hayward looked like a player we should only pay mid-level
money to. Another quality game by a quality group of youngsters.
Alec Burks head is about to implode. You can see he is a mental mess. He
overdribbles and turns the ball over almost every time he touches it. Its
painful to watch.Haywards shooting so far this season is absolutely
horrible and last night he one-upped himself setting a Jazz franchise record for
shooting futility. Great.What is fascinating is that he just kept
settling for outside jumpers. He hardly got to the free throw line. Real
quality scorers know that easy baskets or getting to the line is the only way to
get points on rough nights like last night. Instead he just kept jacking them
up from outside. How is that gamble for a bigger contract treating you now
Hayward? Your horrible season FG% just got even worse.Evans and
Burke both looked good.Don't worry though I am sure Corbin will
get into Burkes head soon too and ruin his ability to just play.You
look at Kanters horrific Al Jefferson reincarnated pick and roll defense, Favors
complete disappearing act for large portions of the game, and Haywards poor play
and it all adds up to players getting worse not better.Fire Corbin
Jazz Source. Promise to change the offense too? If we get a new coach do we get
a new offense. What will they run for a bunch of twenty year olds? Please not
Jerry Sloan, same offense, same players. I'm afraid starting over with
these kids will mess them up worse, if that's possible. At least Jerry
would bench Hayward and Burks for the rest of the year, just like he did the
young players he worked with. Even D Will rode the pine his rookie year for the
first several months, and that was after posting a great first game of the
season. I'm afraid the real problem is the Jazz are trying to make orange
juice out of lemons. Wrong players in a system that doesn't bode well
unless you are a all star point guard and a all star power forward.
Jazz should hire Matt Harpring as the new head Coach.
Ha Ha Ha this guy ^^^^ Matt Harpring? Seriously?
