    Are the Jazz feeling the loss of Mobi-Wan?


    I've been a bit surprised that the Jazz haven't had a huge drop-off without him. Perhaps the following explains why.

    .278% EFG in last 2 min of games w/in 5 pts. He is 4/18. For comparison, Al has an efg% of .577 and is 7/13.

    Our record without him is 6-4. We also won a game where he only played 8 mins.

    It has also been discussed that his +/- is not top -- Per 100 possesions:

    Before I researched a bit, it seemed to me that it was kind of a wash. After doing a bit of research I'm leaning towards that he may actually be a burden. He is the biggest black hole on the team in crunch time while shooting a horrible percentage and the team scores dramatically better with any other point on the floor except Earl the Pearl. I think it's hard to say that the wins/losses says we are better due to the sample size, but I think it's safe to say we aren't worse.

    A couple of side notes, Tinsley was -3.0 last year, and.....just for HH, DHarris was +3.4. In 2010-11 Fess was top of the list lol. There's some fodder for the skeptics.

    Yes, but it's more of the negative of having Earl Watson play.

    We have to get rid of EARL WATSON this guy is earning millions, without scoring any points, heīs the worst BB player, i have ever seen.
    Why they call him Big Al ? think of it...
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    "In practice Iím going against a big great player like Al," Kanter said. "So, whenever Iím on the court with other big men itís much easier."


    No Kanter ,but more AL

    Out of the few games I have watched this year, Mo has been a bit chucker-ish

    Burks not sucking at point was probably the best part of last night's game.

    Burks is fast as lighting gong forward, but his ball protection is a bit suspect. I'm sure that he can improve that however. i was extatic to see him trying to follow the offence instead of shooting it every time. Hopefully he gets more time there because with Hayward and Foye on the team that's the only way he sees the floor with any consistency.

    I like Mo & hope he's back soon. But those stats are pretty interesting. Burks did pretty well last night from what I saw, but caught little of him running point. Not sure how much time he spent at #1. ? Would like to see how he does with more minutes there. I did catch Lowe taking in coach's ear last night after Burks made a play. If my lip reading skills were on he said the words "Burks more playing time." Not sure what else. Anyone else notice that?
    You know squat. You know less than squat. You and Squat could go to the movies and Squat could wear an "I'm with Stupid" t-shirt!

    This.
    You see, contrary to what most physics theorists believe, Watson has formed a mini anti-black hole around the 3 point line where he stands.
    See, a black hole pulls everything towards it whereas an anti-black hole pushes everything away from it. It's really interesting. We should bring in Stephen Hawking into one of the Jazz games to see if we can make use of this phenomenon.

    According to this +/- stat, we should be starting Burks, Tinsley, Carrol, Evans and Kanter, and have them play the majority of mins...

    Mo is a chucker. He takes too many shots. Tinsley and earl suck in a lot of ways but they get more people involved with their style. We are better when we play team ball. Its too bad Mo doesnt realize this. He is a really good shooter. He just needs to take less shots.

    Weird

    Mo=Good shooter=If he shoots less=we better

    I think reality is on drugs.
