    Burks was disappointing. In Jazzland, that means we won't see him for the next 7 games. I don't know how I feel about that.

    It was brutal. This team is talented, but IMO the coaching isn't doing it any favors. The biggest issues I'm seeing is that the Jazz do not know who they are. What is their identity?
    You can't really have an identity if your starting lineup are all free agents next year, IMO. There needs to be some sense of a core within the team. All the top teams have it- Clippers, Spurs, Memphis, Heat, hell even the Knicks with Melo and Chandler.

    This is the problem, our core- if we have one- consists of Jefferson and Milsap and that's about it. Those two are the only constants who get 30+ minutes night in and night out for sure and have been here. But Milsap's future is up in the air. Jefferson's PnR and help defense makes me want to punch babies. Favors is clearly the best big man we have and he can't get more than 25 minutes on the floor at a time. Even with that, he's stuck helping the helper out because the other players rely on him to clean their mistakes up.

    If this Jazz team is going to have any sort of an identity, at the VERY least Hayward and Favors need to be in the starting lineup and need to be relied on even if they lose games because of it, it will help in the sense of an identity because right now the guys getting 30+ minutes are all very likely to not be here next year (Mo, Sap, Jefferson, Foye, Marvin) and they know it.

    My question is why cant he pass like that every game and look to get teammates going? Why does he only do this when CP3 is in town and has something to prove? Everything else he did tonight is his usual game.

    To say the bench was horrendous in the 2nd half is an understatement. Man they were horrid.

    This team needs Favors back in the worst way.

    On another note Dick Bavetta is the worst ref in NBA history. The fact he continues to hold his job is absolutely stunning. In any real industry he would have been fired long ago.

    Can't agree more. He seems to be so full of himself. He is the Dennis Rodman of refs. He isn't good for the game.

    Bad officiating, sure. But the Jazz just blew it. Just stupid late game play. So many poor decisions. I think this is something that lands squarely on the shoulders of the head coach. The team was not prepared, and has not been prepared all year, for these late game, late quarter situations. I think a Sloan coached team would have had a better game plan at the end of a game like this.
    Yea, SLoan was undefeated when he coached the Jazz. There were plenty of times when the Jazz couldn't get a play off with Sloan coaching. The Jazz didn't lose on one play last night. They lost because they didn't execute many plays down the stretch while the Clippers made the plays when it counted. Was it Ty 's fault that AJ got blocked? Was it Ty's fault that the ref called a foul instead of a flop when Billups got "fouled" on his 3pt shoot. The Jazz had these guys on the ropes and couldn't put them away so the lost is on the team.
