    Another interesting part:

    If you want factor offensive and defensive rebounding together, Utah rebounds 55.4 percent of all misses without Foye on the floor, and 46.8 percent of misses with him on the floor. You can probably guess the disparity here, but 55.4 percent would be the best in the league, and 46.8 percent would be the worst in the league.

    I don't think Randy is entering Roger territory, because I do feel he's been important to us at times this year and he is our best 3-point shooter. Just bring him in for 10-15 minutes a night, gun a few threes, and call it a game.

    Locke is such a clownshoes analyst. Not only does he trumpet his own Locke Offensive Rating which absolutely nobody besides himself even looks at, but he just went an entire broadcast "analyzing" the Jazz offensive shortcomings without even once suggesting the problem might be Ty.

    Different lineups are not going to solve this mess. We have one of the worst half court offenses in the entire league and a coach who is in way over his head.

    Also loved Locke bemoaning the "loss' of Mo Williams. Prior to GS, the Jazz were 5-1 without Mo (if you include an 8 minute game in which he thankfully got injured). 5-1 in only a 30 game sample is relatively significant. Jazz averaged 100 points in those 6 games.

    Agreed, the article kind of hints that with some line-up tweaks we'd go from one of the worst rebounding teams to one of the best by benching Randy! Won't happen, but I think this article makes it pretty clear that different line-ups would at least improve our success rate.

    David Locke on Corbin playing Foye over Burks: "We don't know that Burks will ever be better than Foye"

    Ha. Hahahaha.
    Since Burks never plays, Locke is technically correct.

    Figuring out the 5 players who play best together is always important regardless of system. I totally agree. But that would only mask the problem.

    And people need to remember, Locke is paid by his employer NOT to discuss Ty in a critical light. As is most of the Utah media that the Jazz owns. So all we'll hear is meaningless garbage like the "players need to play with more consistent effort!" or "if this guy was playing a little more efficiently, everything would be better!" or "lets not forget that we weren't supposed to be good!"

    At a minimum. Hayward and favors deserve to start and regularly get 30 minutes

    Foye is ice cold right now, obviously, and he is killing the team. Bad defender, poor shooter, bad passes. I'd love to see more of Hayward and more of Burks. Bring Foye in for 12 mins or so, let him chuck some 3's and if he's hot keep him in the game, if not yank him. Why keep a player on the court for over 28 minutes if he is only good at one thing, 3's, and isn't even doing that well
