Game 25 Jazz vs. Grizzlies: Statue basketball is not my favorite
The second quarter was beautiful basketball and we had a double-digit lead at halftime. The second half was ugly statue basketball. No one moving, no one cutting, no one rotating. Stand, stand, stand, shoot. Run down the floor. Stand, stand, stand, inbounds pass. Run up the floor. Stand, stand, stand, shoot etc. It was a relief when the final buzzer sounded.
** Randy Foye: It’s nothing good you can really take from these games.
** Foye: We were standing too much.
** Paul Millsap: Everything was really stagnant.
** Al Jefferson: No excuses. We just gotta be better than that.
Paul Millsap and Randy Foye’s secret language
** Tyrone Corbin: We just didn’t get it done. We gotta figure out what’s going on there, and do a better job with it.
** Foye: You gotta look at these four road games as 0-0, and you gotta try to go 4-0 on it.
** Millsap: We’re gonna go on the road, try to get all these wins.
** Big Al: We gotta go on the road now…and try to get three out of four or all four.

** Boler: Fires a strike inside.
** Boler: DeMarre Carroll rides the belt buckle of Rudy Gay.

** Boler: What you want, Ron, is to close out the last two minutes strong.
