    Our “load management” strategy has been horrible

    Tonight was the second night of a back to back. This is definitely the game to rest players if you’re going to rest anyone. I like the choice, though did worry about those minutes for Ingles and I think it showed. it was an entertaining game despite all of the all stars being out.

    Man, Donovan is really, really bad on defense. I made a point to just watch him on the defensive end this game and he just cannot stay in front of anybody. I don’t know if the analytics back this up, but it seemed like most of Dort’s scoring came when Donovan was guarding him. I’ll give a little...

    I have to say that at no point did I think we were going to win tonight. The reason? They have Chris Paul and we don’t. The difference he has made for the Suns is astounding. He always plays poised and gets his team to play the same way. Donovan was clutch in the 4th quarter, but as a whole the...

    These last two games are the reason no one considers the Jazz to be legitimate title contenders.

    Yeah, I think I need to see some advanced analytics on these posters before I can determine who to nominate. Other than @JazzAvenues, that one goes without saying.

    It would be interesting to rewatch this game and see exactly what Dallas was doing. They managed to pull Rudy (and Favors) out on switches several times, leading to mismatches and the paint open for offensive rebounds. The Jazz are usually pretty good at keeping Gobert closer to the rim.

    Trade deadline discussion

    It will be interesting to see what the buyout market looks like. I know he hasn’t played much the last year and a half, but I’ve always liked Avery Bradley as a defensive guard.

    Man, that was bad. I have a feeling this road trip is going to be painful.

    Fixing Donovan

    Think you may have taken that one on a little too personally my friend. I was commenting on the 6 pages of posts in this thread and not any one post in particular. And for what’s worth, I went to my first Jazz game at the Salt Palace in 1986 :)

    Donovan and Rudy selected last for all-stars

    I think a lot of this has to do with Ingles often not closing games anymore. Ingles makes his teammates better

    Very tough loss to take in. No question the officiating was really frustrating, but the Jazz started to lose this game before those calls happened. They were unable to pull away and once again struggled to execute down the stretch. They were rushing and several players made poor chooses. On the...

    Jazz Comparisons

    Yikes. A little bit of homerism here! 2014-15 Draymond was defensive player of the year and an innovative point forward. Definitely way more talented than Royce. And Iguodala was a former 20ppg scorer who settled into a 6th man role and decided to become an elite defender. He won finals MVP...

    Elijah Millsap: Lindsey in exit interview: “if u say one more word, I’ll cut your Black *** and send you back to Louisiana”.

    I apologize for making assumptions, but I assume from this post that you may have enjoyed the privilege of identifying with a dominant culture. I believe that most people who have come from a marginalized culture understand the significance of “my truth”. When a dominant culture erases or...

    The good news is that the Jazz never looked good tonight and remained close. Not too upset with this loss. The team looked tired and it was their first game on the east coast in a little while. They looked similarly sluggish and sloppy the first game of the last east coast road trip (Nets). As...

    People are definitely way overreacting on this thread. Everyone calms down. That said, this game is very unfortunate. I worry it is going to kill this team’s confidence as it reinforces everything that has been said about the Jazz: too reliant on 3’s, not athletic enough, not good enough to...

    What could we trade Bogie for ?

    I agree that it makes no sense to consider a trade right now. Don’t mess with a team playing this well. Plus, I cannot think of any legitimate player we could get for a package around Bojan. Given his age he would go to a “win now” team, who wouldn’t be trading a major asset, or a rebuilding...

    Any word on whether Bogdanovic got hurt again? I know he was playing poorly, but it’s not like Quin to bench a starter. Hope it was just an off night and not something more.

    Stephen A. isn't sold on the Jazz being a real threat to the Lakers | First Take

    It is an interesting comparison, though I don’t think it is true that this team is far deeper than them. That GS team had: Curry, Thompson, Green, Barnes, Bogut Iguodala, Barbosa, D. Lee, and Livingston.
