    He needs yo take some sort of risk at some point. Something like Philly did with Tobias Harris, or throw the book at Conley. With Mitchell and Rudy we are a playoff team regardless if who the others are. He needs to find a way to build off of that not stay stagnant or else these guys are gone. Plain and simple.

    Houston is the only team we clearly don't match up well against. I was afraid of this, hopefully the Jazz put up a decent fight at home and not fold pathetically.

    I've never seen 1 team so hot and the other so cold at the same time.

    Melo averages 1 steal a game and 5 defensive rebounds a game. That's 12 points Houston wouldn't have. Houston up 60-38 at the half becomes Utah up 50-48 if they had signed Melo.

    If we lose by less than 10 points it would feel like a win, sadly...

    He is their defensive focal point. They give others wide open shots and Mitchell nothing easy. He has struggled, but it's understandable.

    Try being a Knick fan. That Houston coach that is humiliating you...we had him and fired him!

    Because there are no adjustments to be made. The Jazz are two tiers down from the W's and Rockets. Utah is playing 80's basketball in an era when even centers can shoot 3's. When Hayward left, Dennis said he and Quin doubled down on defense. What that really meant is they went out and signed whatever scrubs they could who would take $5M or less. We've seen that experiment FAIL miserably. Even the Lakers with Lebron couldn't make it work.

    At least, as yamers said, there can be no excuses for Dennis. I'd put everyone on the trading block - except Donovan - after this Houston debacle. Rudy can only be effective if Utah's perimeter defense can at least give some resistance. Bricky was once considered a decent defender. Not sure when he lost two steps. And Donovan doesn't escape criticism, either. Can he be an effective 2 at his size on defense? That was one of the reasons he slid to #13. I think Utah needs to get a big SG and move Mitchell to PG. Jazz also need a shooter at the 4. It's time for Lindsey to make changes.

    Then you’re either stupid or ignorant.

    Golden state would be kicking our *** as would Portland. OKC would beat us this year. Not to mention the top EC teams.

    This has much more to do with us doing nothing last summer than with Houston being a bad matchup. We should’ve known that we had to upgrade last summer. The don’t know why we didn’t.

    Knicks are a black hole. I'm hoping the destroy Duhrant next.

    To me, and this isn't a knock on him, but sometimes he let's things get in his head. Big games, games on National TV, game winners.

    Same with Rudy.

    They're learning.
