Great game but Corbin still has to go.
This is the first full game I've seen in a while, and a few things stood
out. Hayward, Favors, Burke and Burks played solid ball while Evans and Williams
had some good moments, too. Burks definitely deserves more playing time...he is
much more under control than last year. Way to develop, Alec. Favors, as
I've said before many times, is well suited to play center, often
challenging the other team's center at the rim. Kanter played as if he had
no lift at all. I wonder if he is playing hurt. In the second half he did shoot
better, but I worry how he gets stuffed so often in the post. Hayward had a
fine, all-round game but still missed too many jumpers. He, Favors, Burks and
Burk are sure fun to watch. Tomorrow will be really tough. Go Jazz!
Richie....You want Corbin gone when they play badly and now as he is getting the
team in the right direction you want him gone. I just don't understand.
You just don't understand what it takes to keep all the players on the same
page. Give credit where credit is due. Good work Jazz, keep it up!
The Jazz are now 8 and 9 for their last 17 ....They were a lead pipe cinch for
the worst record in the league after starting 1 and 14, but this surge has them
with the 4th worst record....Bittersweet to consider that the guys are really
getting after it, and at the same time, blowing their shot at one of the top
players in the upcoming draft.A number of folks have accused the
Jazz of going in the tank in order to get a high draft choice...This recent 8
out of 17 should stop that talk.
The really good news is that the Jazz won. The bad news is that they are close
to being out of last place in the Western Conference. There goes that draft
Richie, who do you want for a coach? I think you were also the one that said
Jimmer needed to be added to the Jazz so that Hayward would have a traveling
buddy. What does that mean? what's wrong with the team members he travels
with now? I'm really trying to figure out what's driving these
observations. Corbin may not be the coach of the future, but I think he is doing
the best he can with this group of youngsters. For the most part they have been
very competitive ever since they got a real point guard. If they continue to get
better the Jazz will miss out on a very deep draft class. This is the year for
developing a coach and young players. I beginning to like Corbins versatility
over Sloans strict substitution patterns. Jerry seldom gave rookies or young
players many minutes at all.
