Game 69 Jazz at Spurs: Not unexpected
Well, at least the Jazz didn’t just bend over and take it, which is a vast improvement. Moral victory. (I never used to believe in moral victories. This season has changed me.)
And reaction of the night (notice how Enes Kanter is jumping up and down with upraised arms before Marvin Williams even shoots the ball):
** The Jazz have now lost eight straight road games and 11 of their last 12 on the road.
** The Jazz are again below .500 on the season.
** Tyrone Corbin, post-game: You get tired of, sick and tired of being sick and tired…This kind of effort will give you a chance any night on any floor.
** Corbin on Derrick Favors: He did a great job clogging up the middle…He did a great job coming across early and making plays on the ball.
** Corbin on Alec Burks: He, you know, he’s a young guy that’s continuing to get better. The more and more experience he get on the floor, the better he been to play, and it don’t matter which position.
** Al Jefferson, post-game: I think for the first time in a long time, the energy, the effort was there for all 48 minutes, or 48 minutes-plus. If we continue to play the way we played tonight for the rest of these 12 games, I still think we have a great chance.
