The Jazz looked much better tonight than they did in the first two games. More team play! Better defense! Still need to work on shots.
What seems to work well for the Jazz is to have Harris or Watson push the ball up from the back court and look for a quick basket or pass. When that is not there, then have Hayward run the offensive sets. Then, Harris is available to receive a pass for a jump shot or drive to the basket. Tonight, he made it to the foul line on a number of occasions as a result. When Hayward is more involved with facilitating the offense, he seems to play much better.
The 2nd quarter lineup of Harris, Hayward, Howard, Millsap, and Favors looked great. Perhaps, Hayward should be a 2. Then, look to trade Bell and Miles to get another 3. Develop Burks as Hayward’s backup at 2.
But it was good to see the Jazz do well. Hope they learn from their mistakes, build on their strengths, and carry the attitude and effort to San Antonio tomorrow.
