"I'm a moron for thinking the Browns could even sniff 10 wins in a division where the other three teams (two of whom almost always make the playoffs) made the post-season last year. Gyp Rosetti's thee God of football knowledge." - Brown Notes
Jazz lose this game without Big Al - but his defense in the first half was something nightmares are made of.
On one play he got burned to the hoop by Gallinari. Favors comes out to help and the guy Favors was guarding (I think Faried)cuts under the basket RIGHT NEXT TO Big Al. Gallo drop passes the ball back to Faried and he dunks with Jefferson standing right next to him.
So Jefferson essentially gives up on the play and stands there watching Favors try to guard two players at the same time 1 foot from the basket.
Jefferson is going to single-handedly bring the term "defensive indifference" from baseball and into the basketball lexicon.
Hey Millsap, your so fine, your so fine, you blow my my mind, Hey Millsap.
Hayward is long and athletic
Milsap is short and not very athletic.
When Milsap's offense isn't going down he's so short and slow out there that his defense becomes a liability (IE: today and Kings game when T rob went off)
When Hayward's offense isn't going down, he's so long and athletic that other 2 and 3 gaurds have trouble scoring off him. Combine that with the fact that he's insanely good on fast breaks and you have a good argument against you there.
We've given Hayward room to have horrible games, and to play with no fear of losing his rotation spot. Where is that for Burks?
As Harpring always says you can't learn off the court. "He's growing in front of our eyes".
"Hayward can be a #1?"......"Maybe if he goes down to Fort Wayne...DLeague" -ESPN
Jazz should hire Jefferson's ex-girlfriend to come out and bite him in the ass before each game - anything to get this guy to show some passion.
My thoughts on tonights game:
I miss Stockton, Malone, & Sloan.
Also, can we get Deron Williams back by giving NJ Big Al + Bell + bag of chips?

there is no way we win this game without al carrying us (that's right) in the second half. your hate won't let you see this.
we were down 16 because noone was playing with any heart or helping each other on d. our starters are horribly out of sync offensively. you might as well blame our point guards who couldn't keep lawson out of the lane or let andre miller post on them over and over.
as for your other post, hell yeah i'm happy we got a 2 point win over those cocky denver jacka$$es. like al said in the post game interview, we just went about it our way and let them alternately strut, bitch and whine all over the court.
finally (and i don't know why i'm bothering), dude you have some smart things to say around here at times but most of the time when i read your posts i wish you'd just f**k off and support another team.
Nice win. Why the hell Favors isn't starting I have no clue, other than Ty is an idiot.
Speaking of idiots, this officiating crew was garbage and a half. I hope they don't ref many more games the Jazz are in.
that was a close one but still perfect at home.
