I know this is a lock-out shortened, condensed schedule season, but I’m beginning to wonder if we have too many parts and pieces in the equation. Case in point, Hayward plays terrific opening minutes for the Jazz against the Rockets (the offense seems more active when he’s on the floor), but we don’t see him again till the 2nd half where he has limited minutes again. Josh Howard and CJ are eating into his minutes too much.
Favors is another issue. Millsap has struggled recently, but is also a key piece to many of the Jazz victories this season. Its hard to justify cutting back on Millsap’s minutes, but Favors has to get more playing time somehow. He’s raw, but he needs playing time to develop.
As a side note, Jazz PG’s are getting worked. I know its not entirely their fault (switches, pick & roll D, etc), but something seems off. Harris is hit and miss on his energy level, Watson is hurt, which limits him defensively and his shot hasn’t been much of a threat this year. Jazz have some questions to answer at PG.
