Post-Game Quotage
** Tyrone Corbin on Gordon Hayward’s last shot
I thought it looked good…I thought he had a good look at it….He had a good look.

** Gordon Hayward on missing the last shot
It was close, and it looked good from my angle. Just back-rimmed it. And, like I said, proud of us for fighting there.
** Hayward on the physicality of the Pacers
Their whole team is physical, and you know, you go in the lane and you’re gonna pay for it. So, credit to them again. You know, they play basketball hard-nosed, and tough defensively, and, so, they did a good job.
** Derrick Favors on what the Jazz have to do to focus mentally playing the best and worst Eastern Conference teams back-to-back
I mean, we should already be focused. You know, we’re in the same position with Milwaukee right now, unfortunately. But you know, we just gotta come out there with the same focus we did tonight, and get the win.

** For the first time in a long time, a starter got “minute’d” on the Jazz starter stat infographic. Sorry, Marv.

Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Ron Boone on Bear’s sack race with a kid: He didn’t grow up with just sacks to play with, did he?
** Booner: CJ Watson just slid right down in the corner.
** Craig Bolerjack: Booner, he is so, so wide, and so long.
** Boler: Scola pumps one up, the tip won’t go. And Mahinmi keeps it alive.
** Booner on Corbin being unable to call a timeout at the end of the game: Oh, that hurts. Boler: Oh, it hurts big. Booner: That hurts.
** Thurl Bailey: No matter what players say, it’s hard to get up for the Milwaukee Bucks.

To close: Remember this classic Alec Burks reaction shot from two years ago?

His reaction when Gordon Hayward missed the Jazz’s last shot was reminiscent of that:

    I was at the game last night, a few observations:

    Gordon’s parents were sitting near us; he got a huge cheer during introductions from the fans.

    Gordon’s fiance was also at the game, with what looked like her mom and maybe a brother. The lady that looked like her mom came over and talked to the Haywards for a bit. His fiance seemed kind of out of place (dressed in business casual/heels with a Jazz shirt underneath.

    Corbin called out plays on almost every offensive possession in the first half.

    Derek Favors physically outmatched Hibbert when the two went head to head; it’s obvious from the box score, but Hibbert looked helpless trying to score on Favors.

    Lance Stephenson is one of the most emotional players in the league. Whatever team gives him a huge contract will be taking a risk, but I enjoyed watching his competitive streak.

      Neat observations. So did Corbin call many plays during the second half? Do we know if Jerry usually called them almost every time too?

        Jerry did for John but less for Deron.

        From what I saw, he didn’t call all of the plays in the 3rd quarter, but did again for much of the 4th. I don’t know if they showed it on tv, but almost every play whoever the last guy up the floor was would stop and check with Corbin and then relay the play to the rest of the team by holding up their fingers.

        If he was doing that again against Milwaukee, that’d certainly impede any chance for pushing the ball.

    Great observations, cubsmodano! Always love hearing from fans that were at the the game because they get an entirely different perspective.

    Re play-calling: As Mike said, John wanted Jerry to call every single play while Deron wanted to call his own plays.

      I’m thinking it would be better for play calls to come from the bench for a rookie point guard. Less on his plate.
