Anyone else noticing that Snyder keeps the starters out there abnormally long? Like he doesn’t trust the scrubs to hold onto a double digit lead inside of 3 mins? It’s weird to me. Let them dribble out the clock and get a shot clock violation every time then. But why are we STILL playing the big guys who played huge mins last night?
EDIT everyone else is thinking the same thing. Sorry, just didn’t see the posts when I posted this
The good: we won a trap game. Niang looked awesome tonight.
The bad: meh, I was expecting a huge let down and that’s what happened. It was an ugly game. I’m disappointed that the young guys didn’t get more time. Forrest’s shot looks not great and Thomas just doesn’t look good to me. That left handed brick he shot was laughable. Would’ve liked to have seen Dok or Ersan tonight. Another DNP from Hughes. Sigh
The reason the Jazz signed Favors is to backup Rudy and give him additional rest.
He sucks so bad the Jazz can't afford him to play more than 4 minute bursts cause the entire team plays worse with him in the middle.
Favors gives you occasional layups. Below average passing. Average rebounding. At least in this system he's negative defensively as well. What exactly does anyone see in his game that makes them like his game? I don't get it.
Name the last time Favors dove for a loose ball, the last time he caught fire and scored 10 points in a quarter, the last time he made the other team call a timeout cause the mismatch he's causing needs addressing.
