Jazz have 6th best offense in the League. This is very good.
Their defense is however 21st/30. Bad.
I think a big reason for this is interior defense, poor pick/screen movement by the bigs, and lack of help from big men when the guards get beat.
I think BIG AL is too valuable to the offense to be benched...the offense is built around him and it is a good offense. I also think that he is a true PF, and is being played out of position as the starting center. I also believe SapMan would be GREAT as a spark off the bench and a big weapon opposing teams fear and moan when they see him coming in the game for the 1st time. Think about the Manu effect the Spurs had and Jason Terry in Dallas.
So my proposition to fix things: START SEXUAL FAVORS (when he is healthy). I would also think about starting Kanter. Move BIG AL to PF and bring SapMan as a super 6th man off the bench. Thank you for reading my thread. I think this will set the defensive tone and improve the D a lot. Favors is a beast on D guys trust me.
