So this really bothers me with a close game enough timeouts to be called.
why isnt corbin doing offense vs defene subs.
it's the most logical thing to do.
this alone wins you 5 games a year.
for example vs new orleans score tied.
why is al in the game. your worst defensive big guy?
while your best defensive big guy is rotting on the floor.
you have a timeout left so if you get stop. you can put lazy al back in the game
I said it almost 2 years ago. What the **** did anyone think was going to happen when you promote a doorman to CEO?
I agree. Even on that last offensive play Favors would have been better for the lob.
I wonder when if ever corbin is gonna learn.
or does corbin think al Jefferson is the best defensive big guy. so that why he did not opt to do a sub
jefferson is a vet. Favors is really young

I think its more that we are carrying on the Jerry Sloan tradition of rotations.
It has nothing to do with race but the fact that Corbin was not nearly ready for this role. It has everything to do with him not even being the first assistant. It's one thing to promote your first assistant to head coach, but second or third? Jazz ought to have hired someone from the outside. Or begged Phil Johnson.

Favors should've at least been subbed in after Millsap hit the three.
This. I honestly don't think Favors would have made a difference on the play when Anderson hit the 3. Anderson just had too much space. On the Vasquez layup though, Favors a)likely would have reacted more quickly and b)with his athleticism may have blocked the shot or made Vasquez miss.

Good point as it is logical to put your best defensive unit in for defensive possessions.

As a coach he believes in the power of wily veterans, this is the cornerstone of his coaching philosophy. We have to learn to live with it.
As we learned to live with Sloan - Jerry was a gritty, dirty, tough-minded player and he carried it into his coaching.
Corbin is such a genius for going with the smarts of Al Jefferson and CJ Miles over brainless players like Enes Kanter and Gordon Hayward.

there is no logical explanation for it. i'm trying to think on 1 single reason why there was not one single defensive sub made. while everyone and their momma new anderson was gonna hit a three.
unles you count this magical thing as veteran power.
"we need vets to win on the road" well for the last years vets aint been winning on the road.
we need defense talent hustle to win longterm.
