There's no Laker lineup that will be extra effective against this Jazz team, hobbled as they are.

When is Hayward's contract up? I wouldn't mind warming up the checkbook when he's available.


This offseason

Well every bit of energy we had is all gone. You just can't let players get that deep in a hole and do nothing. Game is pretty much over in a few minutes of horrible play.

Cool, thanks.  Good to know.  Hayward would be a nice addition (to any team).

 

Competing, but that only goes so long.  Eventually the Jazz will find their rhythm when your defense is non-existent to confused at best.  These are the bumps in the road with a young (and now injured) team.  These times test the fans who have been standing by the "winning isn't important" guideline.

This game is over, Luke with the huge mistake of leaving that struggling line up sucking for so long

Not all on Luke guys, the team played like crap as well.  Injuries to an already teetering / fragile, young team don't help either.

Don't go heaping this on the coach now.  The players are as responsible for just as much, if not more.

Competing goes very long....being down by 20 is not competing so by definition if you are competing that means the game is being kept in reach.....meaning it goes for as long as you compete. The lineup Luke chose to start the game was a bad choice (I didn't mind him trying it out), but it was not worth starting the second half with.

 

The Jazz are a good/tough team but if you watched the first half of this game you would have seen we were in this. Luke chose to run with a starting lineup that did not work at all to start the second half and I dont know why.

 

This game is totally winnable.

The beginning of the game should have been clue enough. Luke doesn't care about winning right now...and that's fine to admit really.

I'm a fan of this Jazz team. They're deep enough and well coached to the point where they can definitely upset anyone in the West.

I don't think there's anything wrong with criticizing Luke. I'm a big supporter and fan of his, but he's a rookie coach, too. 

 

That starting lineup struggling on offense was predictable. That's essentially 4 PF who cannot create their offense. Only when our guards came in were we able to build a lead. 

 

Really thought Luke would adjust the 2nd half, but he didn't and now we dug a hole too deep. Not worried though because Luke has made positive adjustments in more games than I can count. And it's difficult dealing with an injured team.

Luke told everyone in the beginning of the year that wins and losses don't matter.  I can't count how many times people screamed (well, typed emphatically) that at me and others.

 

So now that the losses are coming, you can't flip to the other side.  To me wins and losses always matter.  If nothing else, they affect the psyche of a team, no matter the stage they're at.

And I'm not saying Luke is without fault, but fans around these parts tend to give the players a free pass at all turns and run to the coach blaming game as a first resort.  That's all I'm saying.

Big Vee Jazz can't touch the Warriors although they have more poise than last tear

My concern is that this team will over work themselves into more injuries because they're short-handed.

 

And as I finish typing this, there goes Black.

 

The Jazz are better, but in now way would they upset the Spurs, Clippers or Warriors.
