Game 22 vs. LAL: Captain Earl Saves the Day
Mandatory laser therapy for the entire team!
** Big Al, great teammate: I tell Derrick [Favors and Enes Kanter] all the time, they the future of the Utah Jazz. They 19 and 20 [years old]. They gonna be here way after we gone. [So I tell them] learn as much knowledge as you can right now. It’s gonna pay off for you. That’s why every day I’m always working with them on the block, always in their ear telling them positive things, and it’s good to see them go out there and not be afraid. It’s kinda like we seeing boys turning into men in front of us. So it’s a wonderful feeling. (2)
** Big Al, bringing the humor: [Derrick took a mini-weezy tonight.] (laughs) I tell you man, we be on the block…We get ten post moves up and they always follow me, and the last one always be the weezy shot. They getting there. At first, I felt sorry for Jerry West on the side of the backboard there, but now they’re getting better and better at it. (2)
