Lessons Learned

  • We are not that tough.  
  • But our coach still is.
  • Ronnie Price should be our backup point guard.  End of story.  Brevin Knight couldn't have turned in that performance seven years ago, let alone seven days ago.
  • It is a lot more fun to watch Jazzmen who put in an effort than to watch those who don't.  Say what you will about Boozer being able to get his shot off and playing better against bigger oppoents than Millsap (and I agree), but I can't suffer through another big game where he doesn't seem to try and leaves the court satisfied with 10-point effort in a playoff elimination game.  D Will put it best in the D News today: "(We need) to figure out ways to play harder, and bring a different effort every night. ... We're not getting that effort every night from everybody — and we've got to have that."
  • From all appearances there are three guys who want to start and play hard every night for the Jazz: Williams, Millsap, and Price.  A bit discouraging because that's not a lot to build on, especially if we lose Paul.

Agree to disagree . . .

Toughness is sorely lacking. I think the Lakers are soft - I'm not convinced that they waltz through the rest of the Western Conference playoffs. But they are certainly tougher than the Jazz.
