Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Detroit Bad Boys, the birthplace of Opponent Game Thread Highlights.

We’re DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED
We always lose to the Jazz.
by jayod on Jan 12, 2013 7:05 PM EST

Pistons with more energy so far
by bugman222 on Jan 12, 2013 7:47 PM EST

That two hour flight must have killed the Jazz.
by XstreamINsanity on Jan 12, 2013 7:47 PM EST

Mickey York just compared Monroe and Knight to Stockton and Malone
Wow. Even Langlois would think that’s a little much.
by bugman222 on Jan 12, 2013 7:50 PM EST

Comparing Knight/Monroe to Stockton/Malone? I’m a pretty big homer but come on.
by garrettelliott on Jan 12, 2013 7:50 PM EST

Agreed!!!!!!!
by XstreamINsanity on Jan 12, 2013 7:50 PM EST

So far this quarter makes me worry about next quarter.
by XstreamINsanity on Jan 12, 2013 7:55 PM EST

Wow, that block by Hayward was nice in super slow-mo.
by garrettelliott on Jan 12, 2013 7:56 PM EST


is derrick favours a bust?
by tile on Jan 12, 2013 8:05 PM EST

I’ve heard he has been very solid this year
but I’m hardly an expert on Jazz players
by bugman222 on Jan 12, 2013 8:06 PM EST

[tangential discussions on jazz musicians stemming from "Jazz players"]

No, but not much was expected of him really.
by XstreamINsanity on Jan 12, 2013 8:06 PM EST

3rd pick not really making a name for himself…
Not quite a “Darko-bust”…but he’s been a disappointment
by CheerstoLilWayne on Jan 12, 2013 8:06 PM EST

They have too many solid bigs.
by BandWagonerPaysTheDues on Jan 12, 2013 8:27 PM EST

I enjoy that we got three completely different answers to this question.
by heWizard on Jan 12, 2013 8:25 PM EST

Four!
by BandWagonerPaysTheDues on Jan 12, 2013 8:27 PM EST


Milsap just bossed 3 of our guys around.
I don’t like that.
by BandWagonerPaysTheDues on Jan 12, 2013 8:24 PM EST

Is it just me or did the refs decide to call a bunch of offensive fouls on the Pistons to ge tthis game a bit closer?
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 8:31 PM EST

The calls didn’t look egregious – how did they look on a big screen?
by jayod on Jan 12, 2013 8:32 PM EST

EVEN LESS EGREGIOUS! Or more egregious? I can’t tell which way you mean…they seemed egregiously wrong…even moreso on a big screen.
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 8:33 PM EST

Yeah.
by Shinons* on Jan 12, 2013 8:33 PM EST

do you agree?
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 8:33 PM EST


Finished bollywood dance practice.
Ready for some Pistons!!
by Goose15 on Jan. 12, 2013 8:33PM EST

[tangential discussion on Bollywood film and dance]

Seriously, guys who can dance get ladies.
by BandWagonerPaysTheDues on Jan 12, 2013 8:36 PM EST

this is fact. Taking Swing Dancing classes my sophomore year in college was a primary factor in losing my virginity
and yes, I lost my virginity in college.
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 8:41 PM EST

Me too, but mine was intentional
by XstreamINsanity on Jan 12, 2013 8:50 PM EST

[discussion on NFL games]

I think it’s ridiculous that they call a jump ball when Millsap his hugging Monroe from behind.
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 9:09 PM EST

MIlSAP IS A CUDDY BUDDY HUGS EVERYONE FROM BEHIND
by bonerici on Jan 12, 2013 9:11 PM EST


BEE KAY SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEVEN
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 9:12 PM EST

Go home Boourns.
You’re drunk.
by Trout Jefferson on Jan 12, 2013 9:12 PM EST

I’m already home and I’ve only had a hard apple cider, a brown bomber of tricerahops IPA, and am almost done with my first Mint Chocolate Stout from Stone Brewing…
so yeah, I’m drunk, what’s it two ewe?

[discussion on web browsers]

so sick of them dunking
by Toledo Joe on Jan 12, 2013 9:19 PM EST

we should totally start doing that at them
by Trout Jefferson on Jan 12, 2013 9:19 PM EST

OH MAN! THAT 15 SECONDS WHERE IT WAS 69-69 WAS HYSTERICAL!!!!
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 9:23 PM EST

nasty dunk, Favors.
Ugh.
by BandWagonerPaysTheDues on Jan 12, 2013 9:23 PM EST

what is it with Austin Daye and fouling away from the ball.
Also, Utah still owns us apparently.
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 9:28 PM EST

He attended the Charlie V. School of Cement Feet.
by heWizard on Jan 12, 2013 9:28 PM EST

See. Favors is pretty good.
He just has two slightly better players in front of him.
by BandWagonerPaysTheDues on Jan 12, 2013 9:28 PM EST


[discussion on elephant poop, with picture]

If we’d have made all of our free throws, we’d only be down 1.
by XstreamINsanity on Jan 12, 2013 9:35 PM EST

If Utah missed all of their shots we’d be up 77-0.
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 9:41 PM EST

When Randy Foye hits shots like that.
You get pissed.
by Trout Jefferson on Jan 12, 2013 9:35 PM EST

Holy fucking shit
by Goose15 on Jan 12, 2013 9:36 PM EST

Jazz have more dunks than Detroit made free-throws
by Rusty_Shackleford on Jan 12, 2013 9:37 PM EST

Think Utah would give us Hayward for Monroe and Drummond?
by garrettelliott on Jan 12, 2013 9:42 PM EST

WHAT IS OUR OFFENSE?
Also, again, our defense sucks too.
by Toledo Joe on Jan 12, 2013 9:38 PM EST

Our offensive is OFFENSIVE
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 9:42 PM EST


Gordon Hayward is the man!
by garrettelliott on Jan 12, 2013 9:40 PM EST

He and Millsap are on my fantasy team
/silverlinings’d
by heWizard on Jan 12, 2013 9:43 PM EST

[discussion about fantasy basketball]

What in the world was that?
Why did they let the clock run down?
by sabetodo on Jan 12, 2013 9:48 PM EST

makes no sense
by jayod on Jan 12, 2013 9:49 PM EST

Game clock was 3 seconds higher than the shot clock
Played for the miss.
by heWizard on Jan 12, 2013 9:49 PM EST

4 seconds is an enternity for a final shot
Unless you’re us.
by heWizard on Jan 12, 2013 9:52 PM EST

But we are us, aren’t we?
And wouldn’t you want as many possessions as possible at the end of the game?
by sabetodo on Jan 12, 2013 9:54 PM EST

That was……um.
by garrettelliott on Jan 12, 2013 9:49 PM EST

If it wasn’t dark outside, I’d think it was Daye time.
by XstreamINsanity on Jan 12, 2013 9:50 PM EST

if it wasn’t light outside, I’d think it was KNIGHT TIME!
by The Boourns on Jan 12, 2013 9:50 PM EST


That was pathetic. What a nightmare of a second half.
by brgulker on Jan 12, 2013 9:51 PM EST

Deeeetroit Basketball!!!
by bugman222 on Jan 12, 2013 9:52 PM EST

How underwhelming.
I’d be more disappointed if I hadn’t known we were doomed.
by jayod on Jan 12, 2013 9:52 PM EST

Also I have a hard time quantifying Utah losses.
Like, even when we were regular championship contenders they still whooped our asses.
by Trout Jefferson on Jan 12, 2013 9:58 PM EST

yup
I’d still feel better about it if they were called The Slaloms.
by BandWagonerPaysTheDues on Jan 12, 2013 9:59 PM EST

The mormons.
Where all the cheerleaders are the wives of one player.

    other sports fans are not this uninformed. Its weird. Favors has hardly been a bust. He’s been exceptional last season AND this season. Corbin wont play him, and thats because of milsap eating up the minutes and corbin’s being simply stupid. But why does this have to be explained to you clowns`?

    • January 13, 2013 6:28 pm

      Actually I can see how ppl that don’t watch the Jazz would think Favors isn’t that great. Some of my friends who are fans of other teams have made similar comments. Their logic is that if he was great, he’d be starting and playing more minutes. Of course, then I have to explain what kind of coach Corbin is to explain why Favors isn’t starting or playing more.

        If only the FO appreciated all the work we fans have to do by constantly correcting misconceptions about our players due do poor coaching. Le sigh.

        • January 14, 2013 8:54 am

          Hahaha, seriously! There is always SO MUCH I need to explain when NBA conversations with my real-life friends turn to the Jazz.

Thoughts?
