Can we afford to win this game? How far ahead are we of Toronto and New York right now?

I'm watching...I'm trying to decide if Utah would rather play the Lakers than Denver and are therefore tanking.

If we could have these 6 guys (Biedrins, Turiaf, Watson, Azu, Morrow, and Randolph...so everyone playing minus Kurz) plus Jack, Wright, Monta, and an unnamed PG, I would be happy with the team. Then just fill out the team with a 3rd C, another PF, another backup PG and maybe one more SF we'd be good.

Watching games like this makes me feel better about the season.

if we lose two out of our last three we are locked in as the 7th worst. if we win everything and NYK and TOR both lose their last 3 then we could jump to 9th worst

I'm not sure that our vets ever "didn't give a ****". But I don't think they are all good team players. But we all knew that before this season, it wasn't really a revelation. Maggette is a black hole that is incapable of passing, Crawford just chucks like no other whether he's shooting well or not, and Jack is a shooter. One of these players alone would have been ok (even having both Jack and Baron - two volume shooters - worked ok), but three of them never would. Plus as far as I can tell Crawford and Mags are just not a good fit for any team, which is why none of their teams have ever had success.

I just think those two signings were big mistakes and if we could rid ourselves of one or both of them we would be in a MUCH better position. Maggette off the bench as a SF is tolerable so I wouldn't mind if he stuck around as long as he knows he's a back up.

I hope the team is just smart about next season and doesn't make any knee-jerk moves (Maggette, offering Arenas and Brand 100 million each, etc.) I want them to just tweak things here and there. There are some really good pieces in place that just need to be augmented. I hope they realize that Monta isn't a PG though.

Maggs makes more assists per game than Azu. how come maggs gets all the crap?

I know Maggs gets paid much more, but out of the two true SF we have, he garners more assists.

Utah's fvckin dirty

1.8 vs. 1.6 although Azu fills a "catch and shoot" role on the team, where Mags fills a leadership role. In the last 5 games where Azu has been in Mags' position he's averaged almost 3 per game.

Not to mention that Azubuike has less turnovers per game and does other things on the court that makes his presence felt. Maggette stands around, waits for the ball and shoots it or turns it over, then barely even bothers to cross half court to play defense.

I think it's funny that when they win they all hug each other instead of going to talk to the other team 'cause none of the Jazz players have any idea who the hell these players are.
