    The Jazz won the last time I made a weak, crappy game thread. So I'm sticking with what works. Discuss.

    game 45 was a 45 point loss.

    so by logical deduction
    game 46 will be a 46 point loss

    How about a 46 point win instead?

    Breaking the psyche-out game. Hopefully the boys will gather themselves up and score one for the fans.

    Easy win that won't mean much. Organization will act like we are back on track after beating bad team at home.

    I watched their game last night, they nearly came back and beat the Lakers. Not a team to take lightly. Like Washington, they are now at full strength and have a pretty good amount of talent. Eric Gordon is always dangerous and Ryan Anderson presents problems for our bigs.

    Guess you haven't been paying attention to the Hornets. This is going to be a very tough game. They are an up and coming team. Vasquez is coming into his own. Gordon is getting healthy and Davis is back. Plus Ryan Anderson is playing at an All-Star level. They are a good 3-point shooting team. We have no PG who can handle Vasquez. I would pick the Hornets if I were a betting man.

    we just lost y 45 in our own bldg?.... jazz home court advantage wasnts much of one. plus when your startes play with zero heart i say its a big L... id bench the starters that didnt even give you an effort and bring them off the bench. tell them to earn their jobs back. hopefully that will put an ember under their butt and get them movine especially with a few of them having a contract year.

    Oh yeah, one game means everything. Sorry I don't live game to game. String a few home losses in a row, and we'll talk.

    I agree with you whole heartedly. and a home loss is one thing. its one thing to loose because the other team is better and to give it all you got and still loose. its a total other thing to loose by 45 and look like your not even trying. its not the loss that was dishearting to me it was the style that we went down. i am always a jazz advocite, that is just a hard loss to shake off. i want the jazz to come out and pummel the hornets. i think they owe it to us as fans. GO JAZZ!!!

    It may be only one loss, but the Utah Jazz were humiliated on their home court in their last game.
    That doesn't tend to be a problem when hosting the New Orleans Hornets.
    Coming off the most-lopsided home defeat in franchise history, the Jazz look to re-establish their success in Salt Lake City by beating the last-place Hornets for the 10th time in 13 games there Wednesday night.
    Utah (24-21) has been much more effective at home, going 15-5 compared to 9-16 on the road.
    The Jazz extended their home winning streak to six by beating Indiana 114-110 in overtime on Sunday, but that run came to an alarming end with Monday's 125-80 defeat to Houston. Utah made 39.5 percent from the field - 5 of 18 from beyond the arc - and was outscored 26-2 in transition.
    "One loss. We were terrible," coach Ty Corbin said. "Whether you lose by one or 45, it's one loss. This team has shown a lot of grit and character all year long, and we'll respond.
    "We don't feel sorry for ourselves."
    The Jazz have split two meetings with the Hornets (15-30), but both have come in New Orleans. A visit from the team tied with Phoenix for the worst record in the Western Conference seems to be just what Utah needs to bounce back.
    The Jazz have won nine of the last 11 home meetings with the Hornets, averaging 103.3 points while connecting on 49.1 percent from the floor - 46.0 from long range.
    Al Jefferson is averaging 23.0 points and 10.5 rebounds over his last four home matchups with New Orleans. Jefferson, Utah's leading scorer at 17.0 per game, may be relieved to face the Hornets after scoring 12 or fewer in three of the last four contests.
    Paul Millsap, who is second on the team in scoring at 14.6 per game, missed 7 of 9 field goals to finish with a season-low four points Monday after getting 21 versus the Pacers.
    The Hornets opened a five-game road trip with a 91-83 victory over Memphis on Sunday, and nearly made it back-to-back wins only to have their fourth-quarter rally from an 18-point deficit fall short in Tuesday's 111-106 defeat to the Los Angeles Lakers.
    "We're a young team that's still building chemistry, and to come back like that is a really good confidence boost for the guys," guard Eric Gordon said. "We had a chance to win. We were getting a lot of stops and were scoring at will. It just boiled down to the final plays."
    Gordon, averaging 17.4 points in 14 games since returning from an injured knee, is looking to build on his season-high 25 points from Tuesday, when he made 6 of 8 from 3-point range.
    Gordon has 23.2 points per game over his past five meetings with the Jazz. However, he's faced them only once in a Hornets uniform, scoring 25 while sinking 11 of 18 attempts from the floor in a 96-85 home win April 13, 2012.
