Where's Franklin? He needs to talk more sense into us all.
Franklin's a freakin' buttnutt. The Jazz are simple. They have a lot of talent. They have great fans. They don't have a top tier coach who knows how to teach, motivate and lead. That's the difference between them and a 3 or 4 seed. So don't ever, EVER, get your expectations too high. Unless you're a masochist.
That is a great question. I feel like I'm missing the reason why the Jazz lost.
He explained it in the game thread... we lost cause jermaine oniel destroyed kanter (in kanters very few minutes), hayward was 0 for 5, and favors was blocked 4 times (even though there is no way that is even possible since he only missed 4 shots and i remember 1 of his misses that was not blocked).
It was a trap game. The players were trying to conserve energy for the game against the Grizzlies. I'm sure that Corbin reminded them that the Suns just beat the grizzlies, but that doesn't get through. Remember how much the team sucks on the road? Well they did again. Now they will lose both games instead.
Young team, and their 'leader' in Mo is one of the worst offenders when it comes to me first save the game crap going away from the offence. If he were a rookie I would say 'give him time, he'll learn' but the guy is a vet who is peaking NOW and will be on his way down. No time to learn. I think I am back to wanting to draft the future at the point guard with one of our mid first round picks. The problem is that Gale all but guaranteed Mo a renewed contract during their press conference, so ...........
