Game 68 Jazz at Rockets: Circling the Drain
Yes, this had nothing to do with anything.
** Tyrone Corbin, on whether he knew there would be losses, as he’s giving three young guys major minutes and that comes with its lumps: Yeah. Yeah, but you know, I, you wanna make sure that we’re the best team that we can be right now. And you know, long, and we’ve always said all year, last two years, we want to develop the young guys. You know, and they need minutes on the floor to do that. And typically in this league, young guys, you gonna take some lumps. But we’ve always had, I thought, I’ve always felt that we’ve had a pretty good balance with, you know, playing the young guys, also having the chance to win and developing the young guys, and the veteran guys carrying the load for us, and we’ll continue to do that.
** Corbin on playing the Rockets: I expect it to be hugely intense, you know, because of where we are.
** Corbin, post-game: We’re still in the fight. We’re still alive, actually. You know, we’ve slid. You know, this was a tough loss tonight. But we still in the fight. So you know, we’ll approach every game, trying to continue to compete to win the ball game and we’ll see where that goes. (KALL,1280,Utah Jazz)
