The Jazz’s perimeter shooting and defense were below average last year. I think that Ty Corbin’s experience as a head coach will make him be a better coach this season and even make him excel. I think that the core group of players returning from last year will give that semi-young team some much needed chemistry. To me, a big factor will be how much the players will be allowed to do what they do best and exploit it. I believe that Sloan’s system had eventually, at the end of his tenure as coach, stymied somwhat the players’ ability to use their skills and natural talents, especially on offense, more effectively. Millsap, for instance, has great post moves. Hayward has started to have a little bit better shooting percentage and he should be a key focal point on stretching their opponents’ defenses by finding his shot early. Randy Foye will help with that if his 3-point shooting percentage continues to be good. The whole team needs to shoot considerably better, for the most part, but look for the Jazz to have a stand out year in 2012-13. I see their perimeter shooting, defense, road record, coaching, and unity all being improved. Go Utah Jazz!
