    Bingo! We won the game despite him having NINE turnovers? The Jazz picking up Clarkston was a fantastic move! Had we kept Rubio and Favors and added Clarkston and the other outside shooter we would be almost impossible to beat in a 4 out of 7 series!

    When did we add Clarkston? I thought we let the trade deadline go without a move. Is he from the g league?

    You can't have one player with 9 turnovers and expect to win a 4 game series, that's for sure! I'd pull myself out of the game if I had 5 turnovers!

    Snyder better start pulling Donovan after he commits too many turnovers. Sort of a tough love relationship. That's not gonna fly if it happens in the playoffs. We'd be swept easily if he did that every game.

    My mistake. I was looking for a bad shot that he missed..... Yes, that was bad shot selection but I'm glad he hit it.

    Or frankly get him to stop trying so much iso. It's like that is all he's trying to go, waving off screens and sending people to the corners. It isn't working because teams are bringing the double so quickly when he starts his move. Why doesn't he run a few screen and rolls and get into the lane and dish it off. You know, facilitate and not just play hero ball. Teams have caught on that is what he wants to do now like 80% of the time so they double and he coughs it up. Gotta change that strategy and get everyone involved.

    I’m cool with mistakes... DM will get better. The turnovers came in part because he was trying to pass... toggling between aggressive scorer and playmaker is hard. I think he makes his mind up too early rather than reading and reacting.

    What can we get for the free agent rights to Rony Seikaly and the draft rights to Ante Tomic?

    Exactly. He is progressing as a playmaker. These tough times are hopefully going to help mold him into a better playoff performer for us.

    As much as we would like to live off of our offense, sometimes especially in the playoffs, running an offense just isn't feasible. We need somebody with that special ability to break down the other team through shear will, athleticism, and special talent.

    Donovan is a special talent. Have faith everyone.

    People are overreacting. Mitchell is averaging 2.7 turnovers a game this season. That's not awful for being plugged into the PG role for part of the season.

    Clearly, he's just lending some GOATness to Clarkson
