    Right, but I've spoken in other threads about how the Exum/3shooter/Favs lineup was originally ran by Mitchell when the Jazz first got Korver and it was bad because Mitchell tunnel visioned every time he got in the PnR and looked for his own shot instead of others.

    If he's willing to let the offense come to him and is looking for his teammates more like he has been in January then I think Korver in for Rubio to close games - particularly when Rubio is having bad shooting nights - that would be something I would like to see when closing close games.

    Edit: Rubio has fantastic clutch stats though so it's a tough call

    Cool. We're done. Find someone else to do your nightly pathological argument with.

    Honestly the biggest positive of Korver has just been an offensive option to go to with the 2nd unit. No longer does the 2nd unit have to rely on creating a shot by running a good offensive set, they can just run Korver off pretty basic and easily manufactured motion.

    I think when the team is healthy they should start their best players and best lineup with the least amount of weakness.

    There is no argument. Just your shallow understanding of basketball if you want to insult two guys over missing shots when the team is up 20 because of excellent team defense.

    The Jazz are 11-1 when Korver makes 2 or more 3 pointers

    No, Westbrook is an absolute athletic freak, and Mitchell should not try to do what Westbrook does. Jazz need a ballhandler for most of the game who is NOT Mitchell to keep Mitchell fresh and focused in the fourth. I would rather he play D than get all the usage on Offense.

    Regular Season, yes. But I imagine Korver will be closing some games in the playoffs. That is why is he is playing light minutes now. Just like Joe Johnson a couple of years ago.

    huerter and shamet have gotten so much opportunity to play and learn; quin hasn't been near as flexible with grayson as lloyd pierce and brett brown have been with those 2 guys. even divincenzo has had alot of chances too even though he's played like crap most of the season. impossible to make judgments on allen w/ the garbage minutes he's gotten.

    crowder getting fouled from 3 point line every game is hilarious.

    This is why he should be starting and we just force him the ball the first 4-5 possessions. Pretty sure that’s how it works.

    I said I didn’t want him going full Westbrook... we are more likely to find the things DM needs next to him in a shooting guard. I think he’s better on defense when he isn’t undersized... we can call the player whatever we want but a traditional pg isn’t the answer unless they are big and can shoot and can create their own shot.

    Ingles and others can help but I don’t see why DM shouldn’t play the better part of his minutes at pg... not the iso 4th quarter stuff that gets stale.

    If you want Mitchell to be the next DWade you're not going to play him full time at PG

    Because it is much easier to find a stud pg than a stud 2 guard with range, especially one that will work with Mitchell. Good Rubio works well with Mitchell because he doesn't demand a lot of shots. Look at the Blazers. They get shots for their guards, but their bigs just wither away.

    I get what you are saying but Dwade was always the creator. JWill and Payton weren’t playing like pgs at that time Wade had way more creation responsibility... on the defensive end wade is bigger than DM.

    We are being too rigid imo... he works with both types... need to focus on the attributes of the player we need next to him in the backcourt... those attributes are most often found in guys considered to be 2s.

    Those guys are undersized... their bigs are not guys that need or want the ball outsidenof Nurkic who is doing just fine. Don’t need a stud AS sg... honestly Joe/DM in the backcourt with an athletic 3 that can shoot would work really well.

    His backcourt mate needs size imo... finding big pgs that can shoot and play defense is pretty tough to do.
