The Jazz fall in a heartbreaker in Milwaukee (30-28, 16-14 home).
Monta Ellis went off for 34 points while Brandon Jennings posted 20 & 17, with J.J. Reddick scoring 17 for the Bucks.
Favors put in 23 & 15, Millsap with 22 & 14, Burks scored 19, and Kanter contributed 18 & 10. Hayward added 13/7/5 while Carroll also scored 13.
Marvin, Watson, and Foye played a combined 52 minutes and did absolutely nothing. The three starters went 0-for-15 for ZERO points.
This one’s on Corbin. He left those three unproductive starters in the game way too long in the third until we had fallen behind by as many as 13 after leading comfortably for most of the first half.
Then there’s Derrick Favors, who was dominating inside… then sits on the bench for the ENTIRE fourth and overtime?? You’ve got to be kidding me. Maybe Corbin didn’t want another young guy posting a 20/20 game to make his Veteran-Loving philosophy look bad.
So the Jazz spent all of the fourth quarter clawing their way back, once Corbin finally put the good players back in the game. They reclaimed the lead in the final minutes until Jennings hit a huge 3 to tie the game and send it into OT.
Then we’re down 3 late in the OT, and Corbin puts Foye back in?? Foye’s good when he’s on, but he was clearly NOT on tonight! Why would you put him back in the game and expect him to make that shot?? Carroll was money tonight, I would much rather he take that shot, but he’s the one Corbin pulled in favor of Foye.
Now at 32-28, we’ve fallen to 8th in the West, just two games ahead of the Hated Lakers.
Game two of the four-game road swing is Wednesday at Cleveland (20-40).
Jazz player of the game: Derrick Favors
