Posted by: TACOREV on January 28th, 2013The author's views are entirely his or her own and may not reflect the views of the Utah Jazz.
The Jazz embarrass the state of Utah and their entire fanbase with the worst home loss in franchise history.
Houston (25-22, 10-14 away) literally had its way all night long, whether from inside or out — getting to the basket at will or knocking down open 3’s whenever their hearts desired.
James Harden led all scorers with 25, with five other Rockets posting double figures. Omar Asik only scored four points but grabbed 19 rebounds.
Foye’s 12, Favors’ 11, and Jefferson’s 10 marked the only double-digit scorers for the Jazz. Rookie Kevin Murphy scored nine points in 12 minutes.
There’s no excuse for this. None. Hayward didn’t play, the Rockets shot out of their heads (hitting 16 3-pointers), the Jazz had a bad game… I don’t want to hear any of it. Losing by 45 points in the NBA — on your home court nonetheless — is never something good or even average teams do, regardless of circumstances.
It’s not all that surprising, when you think about it, because Corbin does not hold the veteran players accountable for being lazy and not bringing effort and energy each and every game. So it’s only a matter of time until that loser mentality rubs off on the young players, and the entire team just starts mailing it in on an increasingly frequent basis.
The Hornets — er, Pelicans — come to town Wednesday night.
Jazz player of the game: Kevin Murphy
