Tonight was more than disappointing. You can’t fault the effort of Millsap, Bell, and Harris (at least offensively). This team basically proved that we couldn’t even have beat the pathetic Raptors if we had started out with a 20-point lead. It’s so frustrating because just when you think we might be for real and we’re finally getting a little respect, we have some catastrophic collapse and regress right back to where we were before. And just when you think we’ll finally have everyone healthy, someone new goes down. This looks like the same team we saw at the beginning of the year. No defense, no ball movement, no shot-making. Just some points or complaints or whatever:
- Without Millsap I’d be surprised if our record was was better than 3-13.
- I’ve tried to be patient, but I’m seriously starting to wonder if Hayward’s good games have just been flukes and he’s been taking lessons from CJ. I don’t know if he can become a reliable player. He seems out of control and I’ve started to flinch whenever he gets the ball.
- Defense is no longer a team effort right now.
- Free Burks?
- Finally getting in some practices seems to have made everyone forget everything Ty seemed to have instilled in them.
- Why can’t Harris do more offensively like he did tonight every game? I feel like he tries when he feels like it.
- Did Al’s absence make the difference tonight? Is this what we’d look like without him?
- There’s no one on this team besides Millsap that I really trust at all.
- I’m by no means overly impressed with Favors. He did alright, but has a long ways to go.
- Ronnie Brewer and Deron combined for 54 points, 14 rebounds, and 16 assists tonight. Matthews has 13.
- The Jazz may be the worst outside shooting team in professional basketball.
