Game 12 of 82: Utah Jazz vs. Golden State Warriors (1-11)
Ron Boone: “You might have to stop him from watching so many games if he’s gonna get that upset.”
P.S. This is the same upset child in the video that’s been going around.
** Derrick Favors on whether it’s frustrating when the point guard doesn’t focus on the post and he doesn’t get the ball down low
No, it doesn’t. You know, that’s why, you know, you go up and you tell them, you know, “If you can, you know, look in the post.” You know, I know sometimes it’s hard with the guards pressuring and you know, all the other stuff going on. And you know, you got the coach telling you to do one thing and the other players telling him another thing.
** Favors on what the Jazz have to do differently to get a different result tonight
You know, just gotta take away they 3-point shooters. Keep them out the paint. And you know, just contain their bigs, and you know, we’ll probably come out with a win.
** Gordon Hayward on what the Jazz have to do differently to get a different result tonight
Well, not allow so many wide-open threes, kick-out threes…It’s, I mean, pivotal that we make sure we know who we’re helping off of, and know who we’re rotating from. You know, they obviously have players that, you know, make their living off of hitting threes, so.
** Richard Jefferson on what the Jazz have to do differently to get a different result tonight
You learn from your mistakes, and try and improve on areas that you didn’t do as well.
What kind of mistakes?
There were just some defensive things, some, we let them zo–their zone get us out of rhythm. You know, I think we’ll have, you know, some more legs than we did going into that game. You know, we got off to a slow start. You know, we had a great battle with San Antonio that went down to the final quarter. And then you go in against that running Golden State team that’s waiting on you.
** RJ on Mark Jackson
I think coach Jackson’s done a great job of instilling confidence in guys that hadn’t had a lot of success on the court, as far as winning. And he’s brought that attitude, and his coaching staff has done a great job, and he should be commended for it. (KALL)
Trey Burke: Progress.
Booner Quote of the Night
I call them the “Golden Warriors.” You know, forget the “State.” The “Golden Warriors.” They can just flat out….[long pause]….do it.
** Tyrone Corbin on getting down 28 points
Missing shots. They made shots. I thought they were the more aggressive team. I thought they played with a lot more energy than we did. They made shots…You know, this is a team that’s capable of scoring a lot of points in a short amount of time, and 3-pointers are a little bit more impactful than they really are. It’s the 3-point shot, and guys panic on it, and we did, and they made a couple extra ones on us.
** Corbin on aggressive play
You can tell guys, they were in, we can’t afford to save fouls. We gotta play. You gotta, you know, you get a couple, and if I leave you on the floor, play aggressive, man…For where we are right now, being shorthanded, I have to leave a guy or two on the floor with, in a little questionable foul trouble, to have a chance to win. So, but we have to play aggressive, and that’s learning.
Thought I’d go with something a little different today. Here’s a sampling of the questions (though some of them weren’t questions) that Tyrone Corbin and the players were asked in post-game interviews.
** To Tyrone Corbin: They had to put their starters back in the game at the end.
** To Marvin Williams: How much of giving up huge runs is about growth and the learning process of young players?
** To Marvin Williams: Is it just a matter of focus, you blink just once and it can get out of hand?
** To Marvin Williams: What have you been able to add to this team?
** To Marvin Williams: What is the best message you can give a team like this?
** To Derrick Favors: How tough is it not to overreact, and how much is that a part of being in this league?
** To Derrick Favors: Do you feel like your patience is being tested more than it ever has?
** To Derrick Favors: Going on the road, is that where a team can get closer and bond?
** To Gordon Hayward: It’s just part of the NBA, that you can blink and it gets out of hand in a hurry.
** To Gordon Hayward: How much has this team’s patience been tested? (1280)

** Craig Bolerjack on Kanter: He’ll pop it over Bogut.
