Game 66 @ OKC: Welcome to Yet Another Edition of Unhappy Jazz Blogger

March 15, 2010

The first half of the season, we lost a bunch of games in which we got behind early and stayed behind.

Then we won a number of games on comebacks. Our broadcasters and analysts hailed each win as “one of those games we would have lost earlier this season.”

Well, we’re now back to Square One. Not to mention 0-3 against the Thunder this season.

–Funny that my last post was on how the Jazz have the fewest technicals among all teams in the league. Jerry and Boozer both got T’ed up today.

–Phil Johnson got the workout of his life in the first half keeping Jerry away from the officials.

–Shorthandedness is no excuse. We’ve been beaten on numerous occasions by teams that were missing their star(ter)s.

–I’m getting really annoyed by Deron’s constant complaining. Especially when he complains on one end of the floor while the Thunder are scoring on the other end.

–Scott Brooks = Breckin Meyer

–OMSW scored 29 points on 9-11 shooting, including 6-7 from Three Point Land.

–Kevin Durant is ridiculous. WOW.

–Predicable Locke post-game: “Is it too much to ask for Millsap to step up for one night and carry the load?” / “Paul Millsap is completely dependent on Memo.”

    It’s got to be so challenging to play hard, draw the contacts you know will result in the sound of the whistle, and it does not blow!

    I can imaging being 20 something, an almost specimen of physical conditioning, overloaded with testosterone, talented and knowing what is what in the game on the floor. Only to have crap calls, and non calls break up your mind and game flow. I would not know how to control such a person in the heat of battle!

    At times I wished the clock would turn back on me so I would never notice the NON-Calls, bad calls, tickey BS calls and such, but I do, the boys do, the coach notices it as well.

    That happens way too much in this so called professional league. There really is too much at stake for all teams to turn it all over to bush league bozos control over the flow of the game.

    The only solution I can come up with is to make officials not dependent upon the NBA at all. But that is best left for another discussion.

    A valid point you made, ya can’t be whining while your opponent is at the other end dropping a three on yer ass! YOUR team will lose the game! And all too often that whistle you desired to hear, you will get to hear it, as they nail you for anything at the other end.

    Givem a look, Shut up, and play ball!

    Kevin Durant is one hella ball player, seemingly getting better and better with each game too. I like him, just not so much when they play the Jazz!

      NBA officiating is a whole ‘nother issue, and i agree with what you said. the problem with the officiating is that the referees have absolutely no accountability, and are protected by the nba like they’re in the witness protection program. they can do and say whatever they want, and any player/coach that dares to point out any bad or wrong calls gets thrown out and fined.

      the ref that made that controversial call that lost us the game last time we played okc was there tonight too. last time, deron asked him if he was a rookie and he got mad. think it’s a coincidence that we couldn’t buy a call tonight?

      until the nba allows players/coaches to hold the refs accountable and allow instant replay usage to make sure the right calls are being made, the officiating will always be a joke.
