This win was just as bad as a loss.
The lineup change gives proof that Ty isn't all there as a coach yet.
Since the training camp, the biggest change Corbin wanted to integrate has been early fast break opportunities. I think the idea is that the bigs would stay for a rebound, get it to Mo who outlets it to a wing for a fast-break opportunity. So basically the Jazz become a more fast paced team.
So what does Ty do today? He puts in Milsap at the wing position- completely conflicting with the system he's trying.
It's not like the Jazz were having a lot of success fast breaking with a smaller lineup though.
You've always had a place to watch, now you have a place to ROOT!
There were some positives to this game, but not many.
Foye, and Sap were awful.
Marvin Williams did have 8 boards, but looked pretty bad overall again.
Big Al put up big offensive numbers, but got burned so many times on defense, and on the glass.
Tinsley and Kanter didn't show up.
Hayward, Carroll, and 2nd half Favors were the highlights of the game.
"Hayward can be a #1?"......"Maybe if he goes down to Fort Wayne...DLeague" -ESPN
Though in typical Ty fashion he panicked at the 2nd quarter and sat Favors for some dumb reason for Hayward even though Hayward was stellar off the bench and Favors was playing much better than Sap. Lucky for Ty, Al went off and kept the Jazz in the 3rd.
Hayward led us back in the 1st/2nd by running the offense, getting everyone involved and scoring decent points.
Al scored a lot in the 3rd but no one else was involved. He had triple teams and just bullied the ball up. I HATE that type of play.
I realized it worked out but THIS is the reason our starters do not play well.
Ty needs to change the offense, not bench Hayward.
Hayward is an NBA starter. It is crap like this that will make him not want to stay. Hayward likes a team game, not 1-1 ball.
I agree that Hayward doesn't need to see the bench the majority of the game, but I like seeing him with the second unit. He gets to control the game more with them.
I didn't exactly love Al's play in the third, but he did score a ton of points. I'd rather see him gone and have a more dynamic offense, but as long as he's there he better be scoring a lot of points.
Also, did Sap suck because he was sulking about the change to SF? Hmmmm.
