    But this is JazzFanz.

However, Anderson stopped and reversed under the basket while Millsap kept going to the opposite elbow before he realised Anderson had cut back to the corner. Jefferson was closest to Anderson and tried to close him out as the pass came, but was too late.

    Basically a smart play by Anderson, aided by poor D by Millsap, who either lost sight of his man or just reacted too slowly to the reverse cut - he was still headed for the 45 when Anderson was halfway to the corner - and poor coaching by Corbin, having Jefferson in instead of the more mobile Favors. Credit Jefferson for recognising the danger, reacting to it and trying to get there, but physically he wasn't up to it.
    It was a good play they ran and difficult to defend. Not saying the Jazz played it well, but it was a nice play NO ran. But yes, why not sub in a better defender on Anderson at that time?

I'd rather experiment with the small Tinsley/Foye/Burks lineup. Until Kanter/Favors are ready to score on the block dependably, we need another offensive spark on the second unit, and Carroll is a purely opportunistic basket/break scorer.
    With the lineups we are currently using, I think it would make more sense for Carroll to start. That way you have one non-scorer, Carroll, on the floor with 4 scorers. When you have him out there with Tinsley-Foye-Kanter-Favors the only proven scorer is Foye, not a good mix. Put Marv in with those guys and give him his regular minutes.

    Both teams really tried hard to out-suck each other, but in the end the Jazz were able to suck just a little bit worse.

    I wouldn't have been happy about this game even if the Jazz had pulled out the win. Just crappy basketball.

Maybe because his slow ass got caught in a triple team nearly every time he was fed in the post (how many times was he fed in the post again? Like 8 times?)
    Thanks for calling him out on his crap assessment. This site doesn't teach charity at all. I wanted to rep you like 5 of your posts but the site wouldn't let me rep you once.

    he needs to recognize a double team faster and pass out before he gets into trouble

    My god, really! Really!! No mention of the fact that Millsap was a compete fail last night regardless of the three he made! He doesn't box out either ever. I'm sick of this lame brain Millsap getting a pass when Al gets crucified by jazzfanz, not saying Al doesn't deserve it, he does,but so does Millsap. He's every bit the defensive liability Al is. Can someone tell that idiot Millsap that you need to make contact when you set a pick. I want both those idiots traded.

    this might be the most demoralizing thing I've ever read on jazzfanz.
































    .....please play the young guys more.

    The problem is the Hornets are expected to somewhat suck, especially without Gordon.

    While I am not freaking out like a lot of people this isn't just an overreaction to 2 games. That game last night was a spitting image of all the road games last year that had us tearing our hair out. Lazy Al, bad subs, AND NO BURKS

    Great post.
    Burks probably would've made more of a difference than Foye out there.
    Not to mention, he was lights out during the pre-season.
    Foye had one good game from the field.

    So uhhmm yeah after reading through all this I am gonna keep up the quality of some of the posts and say, I blame some of the stupid ass fans and their bitching. It clearly infected the players and made them play like stupid bitch ass's to clearly represent those fans.

    Dude , you got a serious problem if you put sap and big al on the same sentence in defensive liability, Millsap proved he is good enough to stay in this team for like last 6-7 years or something, and Big Al proved only in one that he is crap.

    Great point, after seeing that the hornets beat chicago i now have changed my mind and no longer am upset about our loss to the hornets... now i think it was just terrific that we lost and i hope we lose to them every time we play them in the future! Thank you root for jazz!
