    I do appreciate 3 straight years of playoff basketball regardless of what happens this year in the playoffs. All of this playoff experience may end up paying off at some point.

    What happens happens. First round, second round, it’s all a runner up to actually winning it.

    We need more pieces. DM and Gobert is a great start, but need a third reliable piece vs. hoping Ingles or Crowder go off.

    Hope isn’t a strategy. We know what this team can do and it’s not quite enough. Take some risks or we will be an eternal footnote in NBA history.

    Agreed. "Flexibility" isn't a plan either unless it turns into assets.

    Flexibility is turned into Kevin Love. And here's his flex-ability [we'll parlay that into a better regular season record]:

    You're killing us with this prediction. Ain't happening. Jazz would just keep Favors if Love was the only other option.

    If we would have lost last night and again tonight and the Thunder beat the Bucks tonight I think we would have dropped to 6th. The only thing that would have changed had we beaten the Lakers is we would have clinched the 5th seed Sunday night instead of last night.

    lol I wish yous all were here lowering expectations back in September and October ... you know, when people were actually pushing the idea the Jazz might be the second best team in the West.

    Let's start writing up the excuses for next year when the Jazz inevitably finish fifth again...

    Wow, that's huge. If Portland loses tonight, then they get the 4 seed regardless of what else happens, and first round is Jazz vs. Blazers.

    The difference between 5th and 2nd is going to end up being about 3 games. Out of 82. That's a slim margin to get saddled with the analysis that the team **** the bed.

    We RAN IT BACK in an improved conference... and won more games. Neither you nor I know what's about to happen in the playoffs. You're being a sour puss.

    Yes... except they are also picking the Warriors over Denver/Houston for the 2nd round matchup (if they beat the Jazz). Which doesn't make a lot of sense.

    that and Denver's record in close games is higher than normal... those things are fluky year over year.

    Personally, I'm 100% in favor of the PERCEPTION that teams are picking us. We've been better all year when we've had a little extra "nasty" (Popovich, 2012).

    Yes, but they are a team in need of a first round win and perceived progress. It is weird.
