those are gone. were now using throwback purple, green, and yellow, with an updated design.
Terrible game last night. I have no idea what was going on. CJ only playing 13 minutes? Big Al only taking 6 shots? and Hayward leading the team in shots with 11?! WTF?! They played slow, lazy, Al wasn't controlling the paint on offense...In fact, the only good that came from the game was Evans. The kid has so much energy and just attacks the ball. I'm not too worried about him putting on weight because his game is reliant on his quickness. He'll never be a traditional PF or anything, just a high-energy guy. I'm fine with that.

Anyway, it was game one, I was expecting them to play poorly for a while. It'll be a few weeks before they start playing the way they should

They're awesome they're just like our old ones and a lot better then the blue ones. As for the team, we have a lot of new pieces that still need to gel, but it sounds like they're just lacking effort. I'm not too worried yet but Sloan really needs to get his rotation figured out and our shooting guards need to get with the program b/c I'm starting to wish they paid the 34 mill to keep Matthews.

They look tired and lazy. Hayward hustles on every play, but he's missing wide open shots, by a LOT. Al needs to be more aggressive, Deron is not playing like last year...like you said, they just need time to gel. I also think we need someone to step up into the leadership role. DWill isn't getting on guys like he was before. As of right now they're all playing pretty soft.

Again, I'm not too worried, we're only 2 games in. I'll give it some time before that happens

I missed the game but it sounded like Williams got on Hayward quite a bit tonight over not running a play right, which is kinda bulls**t on his part since he's been playing like crap so far. Why CJ isn't getting very many minutes is confusing me too.

Yeah I stopped watching pretty early. I think CJ should have more PT. For some reason Hayward is in a lot more it seems. We'll see what happens

Yeah I dont see why Hayward is getting the time outside of his defense and Evans isn't when he can do so much more and had such a great night against the Nuggets. The guy is the energizer bunny on crack out there yet Sloan didnt even give him garbage time.
Undefeated in the preseason and a losing streak to start the season.

Why does this sound so familiar?

I thought the same thing last night how sad lol
Great win last night over a very good OKC team. D-Will, Jefferson, AK, and Miles finally got their s**t together and put up some great numbers and Millsap dominated with 30 points and 16 rebounds for our first win of the season.

The bench still needs to start scoring though CJ can't do everything for them.
Any news on when Mehmet will be back?

December or early January is when they expect his return.
Looks like the team is finally starting to get their stuff together and are playing a lot better then the first two games. Big Al led the team with 27, D-Will added 22, 14 and 8, Millsap scored 21, CJ was awesome off the bench with 19 mostly coming from 5 threes, Price had 11, and Ak was the last Jazz in double figures with 10.

Evans and Fesenko didn't play due to sprained right wrist and gastric distress.
