Game 60 Jazz at Bucks: It is what it is, man.

March 5, 2013

The Jazz’s coach said it was “not hard at all” to make the decision to keep Favors on the bench in favor of Kanter or Millsap. (DN)

As y’all no doubt know by now, Derrick Favors scored 23 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in 30 minutes spanning the first three quarters. He had zero fouls through three. He also did not get back in the game in the fourth quarter or overtime.

Meanwhile, three of our starters (Earl Watson, Randy Foye, and Marvin Williams) went scoreless on 0-15 shooting. If this sounds familiar, it’s because this last happened just 10 days ago.

Post-Game Quotage
** Tyrone Corbin: [Look at] who we’re playing at the end. You know, you got a young guy in Alec [Burks] who’s not a point guard playing a lot of minutes at point for us. You know, you got he and Gordon on the floor learning their way as they go through the situations now. And you got Enes [Kanter] out there at the five, and Paul [Millsap] trying to help with DeMarre [Carroll], the veteran guys, there…You can’t talk ’em through the experience you have to go through and sometimes it’s painful, and this was a painful loss for us.
** Corbin on Derrick Favors: Enes backed [Favors] up and came off, and did a great job. We put Paul back in there, but had those two guys to finish with either/or. And Enes was going pretty good so I left him in there. Derrick had played a great game for us and I appreciate his effort too. So, you know, it’s encouraging what we’re getting from the guys and it’s a great experience for ’em. We need to win games, though, in order to, while we’re learning our lessons.

** DeMarre Caroll: It’s a learning experience. [Boler: Ty mentions that. Is it youth being served right now in crunch time?] Oh yeah, most definitely. Combined, me, Gordon, Burks, and Enes, this is probably the first year that we ever played crunch time minutes. So you know, it was probably a little inexperience, but you know, that’s no excuse.
** Paul Millsap, asked if key turnovers are due to “youth serving itself” in not taking care of the ball: I don’t know what it is…Can’t make excuses about it, our youth.
** Gordon Hayward, asked if key turnovers are due to the team’s youth: Uhhhhhh…I’m not going to blame it on (in)experience or anything. We’ve all played basketball for a constant amount of years.

No post-game sound from Derrick Favors. Didn’t have the balls to broadcast an interview with him?


Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Big Al on his ankle: It didn’t swell up as bad, but by me doing it so many times during my career I think it hurt the bone a little bit. I think the bone was sore. (DN)
** Harpring: DeMarre Carroll could have laid that in. What an unselfish play. He came out.
** Harpring: Great hands. Great hands by Favors. Boler: How low was that ball? It was down around his ankles and he just picked it up.
** Harpring on Hayward bucket: That’s how you finish right there. You take it hard to the hole.
** Boler: Oh, this would be so big.
** Boler to Millsap, post-game: So close, and you just can’t grab it and take it.

P.S. These are…indescribable.

    Marvin Williams might just be the worst small forward in the NBA that has started almost every game of his career. Every shot is short, Not aggressive defensively, and for a guy that is 6’8″, doesn’t rebound. 2 Loose balls tonight, players hit the floor with Williams standing by attempting to look interested. Ok Jazz, please tell me he isn’t a part of our future plans!!

    Favors on the bench for the fourth and overtime was one of the most frustrating and inexplicable things I have ever seen.

    Ty is absolutely clueless. I love Millsap as much as the next guy, but come on. Favors was straight up BALLING and very likely could have turned the tides in our favor. Millsap was getting stuffed every time he went to the hole.

      Of all things Ty did we should leave Sap out of the complaints. Paul played well.

        Paul played some legitimate black hole hero ball down the stretch, against one of the longer more bothersome matchups he could have. He got blocked at least 3 times, and had at least 3 shot violently altered. Paul was coming back from an injury. He just should not have been in in the last 4-5 minutes. How many times do we have to see Al get forced back in when the bench is killing it, regardless of how well he’d been playing?? In quite a few cases, it’s been for Paul while Derrick finished. It’s inexplicable, and I don’t see why Paul should not be mentioned. He’s a Jazzman, had we won he’d have been good with it, I’m sure.

    Ty crossed the board on this one. Playing 3 guys that have been worthless for a while now is unjustifiable. Foye will probably bounce back, but Marvin and Earl are just lame.

    Besides that, costly mistakes on late game strategy again. Up 3, if they catch and start dribbling the ball, YOU HAVE TO FOUL! Chris Paul stalled our comeback with this at ESA in the close game. It is so simple. Jennings hit the 3 and the blood is on Ty’s hands.
