Game 38 Jazz at Hawks: It’s .500 once more…
** Tyrone Corbin, on how the Jazz can stop losing leads: There been a lot of times when we had, we’ve, we’ve been down a lot and came back also. So it’s the same thing. You keep fighting. And get smarter.
** Alec Burks has been playing well and only played 7 minutes… Corbin (annoyed and snippy): Did you watch the game? He didn’t have one of his better games…I decided to take him out of the ball game.
** Corbin, on whether some losses are more demoralizing than others: One loss. It’s one loss.
** Al Jefferson: It just sucks, to let them take it away from us.
** Jefferson on Devin Harris: Good game for Devin. Glad to see him back, you know, from his injury. You know, glad to see him have a great game. But it didn’t matter if it was Devin or anybody else. It still sucks right now to just lose a game that we had, that we had control of.
** Jefferson: It just sucks right now.
** Randy Foye: The biggest thing for us, the way we learn from this, is just not let it happen again.
** Foye: I think we did a good job up until that last 17 minutes of the game.
** The loss overshadows really what was a fine performance by yourself… Foye: It don’t matter. If we don’t win, don’t matter what I do. I just want to win. That’s it.
Random Stuff, etc.
** I first noticed when the Timberwolves played the Hawks a few days ago that the Hawks have three generations of Jazz players on their roster: DeShawn Stevenson from the Stockton-to-Malone era; Kyle Korver from the Deron/Boozer era, and Devin Harris from the post-Deron era (and of course, Andrei Kirilenko has the distinction of having played with all three of them on the Jazz).
** Love to hear about teams doing classy stuff like this:
On a related note, also appearing on the Hawks’ jumbotron tonight was…
** Hope the Jazzmen didn’t take the loss too hard, because there was fun to be had after the game! (H/T @5kl)
P.S. You would think they could spell Jamaal Tinsley’s name correctly.
P.P.S. Seriously though, what kind of crowd–if any–does “Utah Jazz Takeover” attract to the club?

** Harpring: Just go ahead and let them go into Favors.
** Boler: Johnson breaks away from Millsap.
** Harpring on Millsap: The unorthodox shot, but still the ability to finish.
** Boler: Inside, Josh, tough shot, hook it.
** Boler on Harris: Jazz fans know what he can do. Loves to take it down the middle of the lane.
** Boler: Paul is down on two knees.
** Harpring: Nice job by Tinsley getting position underneath.
Like that gif of Alec Burks putting on a hat the other day, there’s no particular reason for posting this… It’s just because.
