Shows how important a bench is. Without two starters Thunder were not much of a
I have been very critical of Corbin, and I remain so. His substitution pattern
last night almost cost the Jazz a game they had in the bag.....I only mention
this because there were a couple of times last night when the Jazz appeared to
actually be running sets....This indicates someone is doing a little
coaching....I congratulate whoever it is....The sets were clean, and yielded
good shots. Haywood's performance was monumental, and overshadowed
his 4 turnovers...but...The team had far too many turnovers from bad
passes...They need to study the film on these. Most were passes which were
thrown at too great a distance, giving defenders time to cut in front of the
receiver and steal the ball.They are now playing.500 ball over the last 22
games. This team is competitive, and Corbin needs to start phasing Jefferson and
Williams out of it. It would take a total miracle for them to make the playoffs.
These two will be gone next year...Evans and Kanter need the court time.
Determine whether or not Kanter or Favors will ever be able to play the 4.
