    It won't be the Spurs this time.

    Its going to be a 3 point show down. With the Warriors winning of course. But a good series.

    The Jazz should have traded for Lou Williams.

    Houston's obviously better than Utah, probably would run them off the court in a series... Lou is a major win-now piece. He's pure concentrated offense, a one man army if you will..

    What Utah's done is no "win-now", you've been taken for a fool if ya believe that check the team salary and how it stacks up vs other "win-now" teams.. Fact - this seasons roster moves revolve entirely around the appeasement of Hayward.


    the lack of mention of the threat that Houston presents is a sterling example of the "win-now disillusionment" wrought upon the casual fan by the F/O... I know Utah won the last matchup but Houston shot just about as bad as they have all season to start that game, an unlikely result to count on in a 7 game series they were also missing Beverley and Lou Will.


    "we're happy with the team and chemistry we have" is the refrain of a team who's offers were declined.

    Stop posting here. You aren't even a Jazz fan. Plus your posts are progressively getting worse.

    It's certainly possible. Especially if they stay the 2 or 3 seed. Houston took a step forward IMO.

    Jazz need to finish strong get to the 2nd round and then take 2 steps forward this off season. Time to shuck players we like who wont cut it next season and commit to those that produce.

    For example: If this is who Favors is now he has to go. Re-sign Hill and Hayward. Look at trading Burks. Clean up the PGs.

    I agree. Coming into the season, I think DL expected to have a great starting lineup and a solid bench (10 deep).

    Starters: While Hayward, Hill and Gobert haven't disappointed (except for Hill's injuries), Favs isn't the 16/8 two-way force that we thought he was going to be due to injuries. Hood has been wildly inconsistent - and hurt.

    Bench: could DL have been any more wrong about Lyles and Exum? These two were supposed to be major rotation players. Instead, Lyles has been horrible and Exum is just starting to show he can be the #2 PG. Jingles has overachieved, JJ has been solid. Diaw mostly sucks and Burks is still MIA.

    Jazz were never going to win the championship this year. So why give up valuable assets to bring in a couple of rentals to help win perhaps 2-3 more regular season games and maybe 1 more in the playoffs? Save the assets to go after a SG and PF/C. Or use all of them in the draft. Throw enough darts and Lindsey could find a rotational player or two, especially in this deep draft.

    Lol in the last 20 years everytime we meet up with Houston we send them home crying.

    McLady couldn't stop us, and neither is James Soften.

    Williams provides shooting and scoring to a team that could already shoot and score. I don't see how he elevates them.

    Possibly the finals if Durant's knee injury is severe

    IAWTOP.

    If Durant is still out, I think the Rockets could actually push the Dubs to 7 games too.
