If Kanter can keep this up Jeff can walk after the season. He had a nice moment I think against Howard, where after he started his back in, passed out, got better position, got the ball back right away and scored. Looked solid the whole time, pro move. I hadn't seen this from him, he might be a lot closer to being ready than I thought.
Keep it up Big Avian Livestock.

Three quick shots-
Hate to be Debbie Downer on such a happy night, while we celebrate Enes should we also be concerned about Hayward? The dude is in his third year, his shooting percentage sucks, tonight he played 30 minutes and got 1 rebound, and 2 assists, with no steals and no blocks. The rebound he got was tipped out by the bigs and he picked it up. Dude gets blocked so much going to the rim that the refs won't bail him out no-more. He is looking more like a 23 minute a night guy than a star. He has not evolved in anyway that I have noticed.
Marvin needs more minutes.
Jazz beat the Lakers on the same night that Torey Ellis' Nets get blown out early by the BUcks. The 'fans' in Brooklyn were booing before halftime and the arena was empty by the start of the third quarter. Torey was something like 3 for 13 in the first half and sulking. I'm so happy.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Jazz have jumped the shark, and NBA has nuked the fridge.

He's actually regressed. I think it has to do with the increased expectations. Whereas a year ago he could just let the game come to him(essentially the role currently occupied by DeMarre), there is now pressure on him to perform. And he's wilting like a flower in autumn. The most worrying thing for me has been the drop in his assists. I always figured that he had the talent to run plays from the high post once in a while in the way Andrei used to. I haven't seen that at all this year.

Also, if Dwight Howard is not hurt, than these last 20 games may be one of the bigger Emperor's-New-Clothes moments in a while. He's gone from poor man's Patrick Ewing to financially secure man's Serge Ibaka in a very short time.

Hayward has had a pretty good December thus far.
45% from the field
47% from deep

Also, this is a game that makes me love Mo-Will. He is a good PG, and I think probably better than anyone we will be able to get in FA next year. I just hope we can get a young back-up with promise to eventually take over. Maybe someone like Bledsoe or Marshall, or someone in the next draft.

People are over-reacting on Hayward. He is close to putting on a great run of games. Quote me.

That was an ass kicking. The Lakers ungodly amount of hit 3s is the only thing that made it close, the Jazz were just dominating them everywhere else. I don't even care that the Lakers are not good, winning against them in LA is sweet, as well as taking the season series against them.

Yes I remember one play, Kanter got the ball on the high post, about 15 feet out and backed down the backup big, I forget his name, and scored. It had to remind la fans of Shaq.

I dont think there is much difference between two as well. Mo may seem good time to time, and may help you win couple of games in the season, but he is not the answer for long term, plus he has horrible choices at times, especially in critical games, moments.

They do, not marginally but depending on people they can get taller, and even their hair grow more after 20, so in years to come Kanter may turn not only into a beast but a hairy one.

Please explain how Mo isn't a big upgrade over Harris. He's a better shooter, better defender, gets more assists, leader, more aggressive, oh and by the way he's 8th in assists in the entire NBA. Please explain this, it should be interesting. It's not even a discussion. This might be your dumbest post ever.

i'm not too worried about hayward just yet.
needs a little more consistency in jumper. his drives still look kinda reckless at times but he does know how to finish around the rim and that should only improve.
misses a lot of calls too, probably because he sometimes looks so out of control.
needs to use that quick pull-up in the lane a bit more often rather than keep charging into guys.
not sure what his ceiling is but still has plenty of growing to dp and i think he'll be a useful players for years.

Hayward comes from the bench cold, making a couple of mistakes, turnovers, miss shots etc. He is not the typical 6th man that would give you what you expect from him in an instant like Terry or Manu but down the stretch he get used to it, he feels much more comfortable and knocks his shots more constantly and get hot with the flow of the game. And his performance lately is not that bad.
