    This won't happen but a lineup change needs to happen :
    Insert Alec Burks in for Joe Ingles

    PG) Rubio 27 y.o.
    SG) Burks 26 y.o.
    SF) Hood 25 y.o.
    PF) Favors 26 y.o.
    C) Gobert 25 y.o.

    Rubio is running fast pace and Burks could easily run with him
    Mitchell can't run a offense and is over his head right now trying to be the PG
    Ingles is a coach out there and can run the 2nd unit and still finish out the 4th quarter
    Play Udoh a couple minutes more each half
    I haven't in any way given up on Mitchell but playing with Ingles would be a good move
    Rubio,Burks,Hood would be an actual threat to score points

    Burks struggles to get to the rim and finishes even worse. Burks the scorer is a myth. He also plays no defense. He got burnt by Sindarius Thornwell on back-door cuts against teh Clippers, TWICE.

    The 3pt shooting he has developed is nice, but his nature is to take bad shots.

    Yup, there is a reason why he didn't play a single minute against the Suns.

    btw, Andy has been on point with his analysis this season. Putting some extra work.

    Frustrating part with Burks is he looked really decent on both ends of the floor in our two wins which was a nice contrast to see from his typical matador defence. But in game vs Clippers he reversed to his old ways on defence and was making the dumbest decisions on offence. I think Quin sent a clear message to him by not playing him vs Suns. Lets he how he responds.

    He'll respond by continuing his usual dumb brand of basketball

    Sad part is I dont think we could trade him. We would have to offer a pick to get a team to take him or bring back a worse contract

    We just have to embrace the Burks we get on any given night. He is streaky but when hot he is a contributor to our success, sadly when he isn't, he can hurt us dearly. Its the Jekyll and Hyde type of thing. But I would like to think his inconsistent play is due to his bad luck with injuries, at any rate here is to hoping he stays consistently good!

    Jazz offense has dropped to worst in the NBA scoring wise and all Quin Snyder says is for Mitchell to keep shooting the ball even though he can't put the ball in the basket.
    They don't have to bench Mitchell at all BUT not playing Burks at all doesn't make sense since scoring is not an issue with him.
    Right now Snyder can't figure how to get more points on the scoreboard except keep repeating the same mantra,pass til everybody touches the ball and shoot at the end of the clock.It's not working.

    In an offense where we are constantly turning over the ball and chuckers are putting up shoots without making buckets. Some reason in this offense Burks gets attacked for not finishing when he can actually create offense. He got caught sleeping on one play. Then the next game TJ Warren made Ingles look silly. No consequences for hum.

    I think Favors is the key, if he gets going early and averages 18 a night everything else will fall in place

    Favors is efficient and has touch. Keep feeding him.

    Gobert is very efficient and produces.

    Rubio is a little wild. He needs to start focusing on not turning it over and being efficient. Go to his go to move when things break down which is the midrange shot. Yes it is not the best efficiency for a shot, but it is more important for Rubio to be consistent than anything else.

    Mitchell needs to figure it out. Don't get out of control. Find a good rythm and pick your spots hit it hard on the offense. Just don't turn it over - we are hurting here as a team.

    Hood. Just be you and shoot it when open, everytime.

    Joe Ingles, shoot it!!!!

    Thabo, don't turn it over, and keep playing D and pick your spots.

    Joe Johnson, if he was 5 years younger then all the problems on this team would be solved. His is the alpha scorer. Be the alpha in your limited time on the floor.

    round peg square hole
    Favors is redundant
    sucks but true

    Rubio
    Burks
    Hood
    Ingles
    Gobert

    Put in shooters trust in Rubio to find them Trust in Gobert to hold down the fort on the other end

    Hell no to Burks. I like our starting line-up but we might need to make adjustments. Like a smaller lineup of:

    Rubio
    Mitchell
    Hood
    Jingles or Joe Jesus
    Rudy

    I want Mitchell in the second rotation. The one that will be without a pg. Start Burks sub Mitchell for Burks so that Mitchell gets some mins running the offense when rubio sits. Development
