    In your previous post you said that we have no wing players that can create thier own shot.... myself (and most others) think that burks can create his own shot. (i have seen him do it many many times, so it has already been proven to me)

    Even in your own post right here you say burks can get to the rim.
    His shooting percentages will come up with consistent playing time.... case in point: last night 100% from the line.

    big al, how come you always have to spoil a good run when we're playing against a team with stars? those freethrows were coldblooded but that foul was unprofessional. I know he has to block his way but what kind of a foul is that any way. if it was a layup, it might also be a convert and one.


    David Locke: "Because what happens in this league is, people start shooting threes and they get soft and donít want contact and then they just stay out there all the time. Youíre not going to get soft, are you?"
    Enes Kanter: "I kind of live in the paint, man. Come on. I wonít get soft. Donít worry about that."

    Its so easy to beat the Jazz. Just allow Al Jefferson to get the ball, let him shoot his 50% ISO game, and just do transition offense when he misses. THey wont have anyone on D

    Wow, Foye at -18 despite scoring 28 and your team only losing by 2. Is that some kind of record? But he is now firmly solidified in Ty's mind as one of those solid vets we need to rely on to forge our way to the top. We beat the Spurs donchya know?

    Kanter had 2 TO ... to go with his 2-3 fgs, 4-4 fts, 8 pts, 5 rbs, 2 st, and 1 bs -- all in half the playing time that Millsap got. Kanter was by far the best big man the Jazz had in the game, and Corbin played him a whopping 14 minutes.

    Hayward guarding Chris Paul in the 4th?

    Who's the genius responsible for that?

    You don't have that specific matchup in crunch time unless by design.

    The Jazz are idiots!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Absolute idiots!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Putting Hayward on Chris Paul sealed the win for the Clippers.

    Hayward held CP3 to 1 for 6 shooting in the 4th quarter plus a block.
    You'd rather have Tinsley gaurding CP3?

    I really hope you are just joking. Haward actually did an excellent job on CP3. Our other pg were getting destroyed by Paul to the point that it was embarrassing to watch. Hayward is the only guy we have that can remotely slow down a top shelf pg.

    The problem down the stretch was Big Al with the stupid ticky-tacky foul.

    Hayward was a smart choice.

    If TyCo were smart, he'd give Hayward and Burks 10 minutes each at the point--especially against PGs who are faster than Tinsley and Watson.

    Which comprise most of the PGs in the NBA.
    Someone asked if a center can still be a difference-maker in today's NBA, and Shaq said, "No. Not shooting jumpers."

    At least Corbin is carrying on the Sloanian tradition of live-or-die-by-your-starters.

    Key difference: Sloan's starters included two top 50 players for most of his time here.

    When those top 50 players left and Sloan continued that flawed strategy, success slipped--most of the time.

    More effective strategy:
    -- Analyze matchups and player/rotation combinations. Revise and repeat.
    -- See what works early (and what worked in the last 1(0) minute(s). And on the last play.)
    -- Make adjustments.
    -- Don't worry about getting your regular rotation playing time. Make them earn it.
    -- Give young guys minutes, especially when they are performing and/or the regular rotation isn't.
    -- Watch your team get deeper and more experienced fast. And watch the close wins fall your way.

    Just have to hope KOC and Lindsey save Ty from himself and trade some of the veterans that make up this dumpster fire of a team. When Burks is consistently cracking 20 minutes and Favors and Kanter are in the 25 range I'll be happy.

    All of this.

On why he let Trey and Gordon play while having bad games, "You gotta let them battle through it because that's what you gotta do." Really are you kidding me. You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?
