To dispel the notion that TCG only reports bad news, I am here to report that the Jazz exorcised our Madison Square demons and emerged victorious in New York for the first time since 2004. Now, that's not to say that the Jazz dominated, or that they put away the game against the 1-6 Knicks easily; quite the contrary. However, we here at TCG recognize progress when we see it.
Boozer had a nice game (as he should against a team that features David Lee/Wilson Chandler) and Kirilenko's 3-point shooting carried us in the second half (let that sentence sink in). So those are good things. Hopefully they continue.
The negative development, from the Jazz' viewpoint, is the massive amount of zone that the Knicks threw at them. It took a basketball genius like Paul Westphal to realize that it makes sense to zone a team with no shooters, but now that the Kings' coach has let the cat out of the bag, the Jazz can expect to see a LOT of zone until we prove that we can beat it. Can we?
