One nice adjustment would be Conley returning. They couldn't do what they did on the perimeter with that.
True. Would definitely like to see Q work against their defense with Conley. ...

I’m also tired of watching all our guys soak up so many minutes in Conley’s absence...

I'd like to see Conley teach Donovan about staying calm under pressure. What I mean by that is that Donovan's response to pressure is often what someone's natural inclination is with a Chinese finger trap -- to pull your fingers apart harder. When people apply pressure, he tries to push even harder over that pressure and it puts him into worse situation, but because it occasionally comes with a reward of a clear lane for an emphatic drive, or a step-back three, it gives this illusion that asserting oneself more is helping. Conley is more like the guy who calmly advances his fingers farther into the trap to release the pressure, then escapes. Donovan is much more "I need to pull my fingers out harder to get out of this thing!" kind of person. Beverley knows this, and Donovan needs to get better on taking the bait.

I don't like snazzy Deron.

We saw at times when Don was calm in the Nuggets series when he was a true super star.

I want to see more of that.

If we get hot in the playoffs and do make it the finals the Nets are going to be a problem.
It is ok we can be the Detroit Pistons of Ben Wallace and they can be Malone's Los Angeles Lakers. We all know who won that series. I hope the Jazz have the problem of facing the Nets. If we have this problem it means we made the Finals and we will be underdogs. I like that idea.

I would love it if the Clippers were at full strength and the Jazz destroyed them. It would shake up the league. On the other side if the Jazz lose than everyone will say we are overrated and continue to overlook us.

tbh, I don't think his injury will get worse, it is just a matter if he can play with the pain involved. It could remain like that for months. might as well see what happens. Plus, it is illegal in California to continually hold a son away from his legal father, Joe Ingles.
This is an early contender for post of the thread.
