    Jesus Christo, pathetic. I don't know what Stotts is thinking with Kanter. Any other solution is better. They're lucky they survived game 7 of the Denver series with Kanter bleeding that many points.

    Kanter is on the verge of being played out of the GS series.

    In short, NO, we did not give up too soon on him. He's a talented offensive player but an absolute cypher on defense. A team seeking to build a defensive identify (as the Jazz) cannot have a non-athletic, non-mobile, unable to guard the pick and roll center anchoring its defense.

    Dear God, he looks like he's not even trying on defense. How did Denver not exploit this guy more?

    Were we playing Portland (and being the league's #1 pick n' roll team), we'd be going at this guy almost every single possession.

    In Kanter's defense the game plan was to drop on the PnRs, and Stotts defended it in his press conference. Him getting torched by Curry on PnRs all night isn't surprising.

    Unfortunately I don't really know what other option Stotts has because Kanter sure as hell can't come out and hedge with getting beat off the dribble by Curry either lol.

    Any other option is better. Play Aminu at C against the Warriors. ****, in this series, play Turner at C over Kanter.

    No on Kancer.

    Hood is a what-if situation. How does Donovan progress with Hood still in the rotation? The situation was unfortunate about his contract and I'm happy to see him get some resurgence in PDX. I wouldn't mind having him back on a rotational basis as he would help the bench.
