    We have the easiest remaining schedule in the NBA. The Rox have the 2nd easiest, the Clips the 4th easiest, the Nuggets the 13th easiest, Lakers 14th easiest...so other than the Rox and the Clips, we have a fairly major easier schedule than every other major contender in the West.

    We’re still the 6th seed despite this God awful stretch and just three games out of the 2 seed.

    We should get better. Conley has sucked. Ingles has sucked. Donnie’s been shaky recently. Davis and Exum are now back which should help. Plus maybe a move can be made at some point.

    In other words, don’t jump. There’s still a lot to like and positive possibilities out there for us.

    And look after that Lakers game. The next seven are all very winnable.

    Bright side is, both Exum and Conley's horrendous contract will run out in 2021

    It’s quite obvious he’s referring to the Buffalo Braves.

    Last year the turnaround started much later, and we were like the 10 seed at that point, and we lost to the Mavs by 50! And that team was a full continuation of the year before.


    Valid excuses aside, it’s time to start showing some improvement on the court, starting tonight.

    Remember when we were favored in 13 or our next 16 games? But, yeah, the schedule... the schedule.

    I still have hope. But that’s because I hope they tear down the whole offense and rebuild it. I have no hope as long as we continue to run this same **** and shoot from where we’re shooting.

    Ben Dowsett had a good point a day or so ago. He mentioned that LA is on the second night of a back-to-back Denver-Utah, and we’re not expecting them to fold, whereas if it were us we’d already be penciling that in as an L because “tough schedule.”

    For the record, the PHI game was the Jazz' first loss on the 2nd/back end of a back to back this season. They had won their previous 3 or 4 (whatever it was).

    The bad news is we don't play any soft teams in the playoffs. So if it takes an easy schedule with bad teams for us to win, first round exit here we come again.

    What's worse is that we spent millions, burnt draft picks and gave up fan favorite players just to tread water

    This is the kind of **** that drives me nuts. Like, “just wait until we beat up on some tanking teams... we’re gonna look reeeaaalll nice.”

    Plus when we end up losing to those teams, then we get “bros, relax, you can’t win every game you’re favored in. It happens to all teams.”

    just don't know what will be the solution we'll find to get the offense on track, aswell as the answer to solve our rebounding problem and capacity to get stops against good to great team/players
