Game 24 Jazz at Suns: Two steps forward, one step back

December 15, 2012

harpring-finger-sThe Jazz dropped the ball like Matt Harpring dropped the foam finger, or something.

Quotage
** Tyrone Corbin, post-game: They cut harder, ran harder than we did tonight, but you know what, the fortunate thing is we play again tomorrow night.
** Corbin, post-game: We didn’t play our best game tonight. We didn’t come out with a sense of urgency like we thought we should have. But you know what? It’s another game tomorrow night.

Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Harpring: When you make Dragic go to his right hand, not nearly as effective.
** Harpring: Letting Dragic get back to his left hand. That’s where he wants to go. That’s where he’s comfortable.
** Harpring: …as Favors goes nicely to the hole.
** Harpring: I’m just going to say it. If you don’t have props or visual aids, you’re not winning.
** Harpring: There’s a little action going on between O’Neal and Kanter. They’re kinda pushing and shoving each other. Little blows to each other.
** Harpring: Millsap and Jefferson waiting on Dragic to go up.
** Harpring on Beasley: Can his head match up with his talent?

    I am so disgusted with Corbin. Hayward was 0 for 5….ok….but playing him only fifteen min? Was there a reason, was he hurt? I didnt see too much of the game. Foye is an awful player, and when someone plays defense that poorly you wont win. Period. He is not a starting caliber player. Corbin is clueless. Kanter only 13 min? I mean the whole offense is now Jefferson and Foye. PATHETIC:

      I really don’t think this was Foye’s fault. When we let things get out of hand early, it was Kanter with 2 TOs, Earl with another, Al missing everything, Mo playing poorly, everyone not playing as hard as the Suns and kind of disinterested.

      Harpring said early this was a trap game because the Jazz had just gotten a few good wins and had Memphis back home today. Now even Ty says “the fortunate thing is we play again tomorrow night” and it really looks like the losing mindset yesterday was impregnated on the whole Jazz crew…

        the problem is an offense that runs through Jefferson….and secondly Foye. Its just a recipe to beat lousy teams and lose to good ones. Its not an effort to create an elite team. Its coveryourass offense by a worried inexperienced coach. Arguably Hayward and Favors are the two biggest talents on this team. I would argue that anyway. Kanter needs to be give space to make a couple turnovers without being benched. This isnt Junior high school. Its a mediocre looking team, AGAIN. If thats what one wants, great. You’ve got it. But the talent is on this roster for much more.

          “It’s just a recipe to beat lousy teams and lose to good ones.”

          It’s funny, my impression of the Jazz is a team that only gets up for good teams and tends to lose to the lousy ones.
