***2012-2013 Utah Jazz Thread***

Corbin finally showed some intelligence last night by not playing Tinsley or Watson. Too bad our season is already over.
Guys like Millsap have already checked out. I think since the trade deadline passed hes only averaged something like 12ppg. It's time to just let the young guys play
Carroll had 5 fouls in 4 minutes last night. Holy s**t! hahaha
Can't believe we are only 1 game back?! How is that possible? Got a couple winnable ones coming up.

The Utah Jazz have eight impending free agents this offseason, which has made Tyrone Corbin's job of finding minutes for everyone even more difficult.

"With this group, I like to say that they've been tremendous all year," Corbin said. "Right from the beginning of training camp, we talked about the number of free agents we had. Everybody keeps mentioning it. We tried to get the guys — as much as they could — to not worry about it as much, but it's been there."

Upcoming free agents include regulars Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson, Mo Williams, Randy Foye, DeMarre Carroll, Jamaal Tinsley and Earl Watson.

Corbin contends that it hasn't been an issue on the whole.

"You have so many guys on the same mode it affects your overall play a little bit," Corbin said. "To these guys' credit, I think for the most part all year long they've been focused on trying to control what they can control, and that's how they're playing right now."


This team could be radically different next year. I want Carroll back for sure but the other guys I'd be ok with letting go.

I've been somewhat harsh on Corbin and this makes sense. Never really thought about how the contracts affect playing time, and how he somewhat has a lot on his shoulders. I still question a lot of his coaching decisions more than playing the younger guys though. Sometimes this team just seems completely out of whack and lost. Simple things I was taught in school ball like a playing against a 2-3 zone, inbounds plays, boxing out, proper rotations on defense. That and his rotations on starters and subs are flat out bad sometimes.

As far as who we keep Carrol, and I think Foye is a good fit too. Honestly wouldn't be 100% disappointed if we resigned Al, but his play of late has been pretty blah. Just not sure what our plans are with Kanter and Favors. One thing about them sitting behind Al and Paul we really don't know what they can do carrying the load. Hopefully we can add some talent via free agency, and possibly a solid scorer and we would be 100% different than Jazz teams we've had in the past. Kanter and Favors are both still 21 if I'm not mistaken.
1/2 game back.... Mavs lost as well.... We could retain the 8th seed with a win tomorrow...


And Kanter out "indefinetly" . Wonder who is going to get his minutes? Demarre? Evans??? Probably not Evans but it would be nice to see him a little more,

Big win last night. Back to the 8th spot.
This is crazy. I love it but I'm a nervous wreck. Big win against the Dubs today so hopefully we can hang on from here on out.
Our entire focus should just be on knocking the Lakers out. Obviously we arent winning the title, but at least end the Lakers season.
