INSIDER – Reports from last night’s contact session
Posted on October 4, 2012 by David Locke
Last night the Jazz broke into three groups for their contact sessions and played 4 on 4 and 5 on 5. Various pieces of information came out about last night’s sessions today.

The team of Jamaal Tinsey, Gordon Hayward, DeMarre Carroll, Darnell Jackson and Derrick Favors did most of the winning. The other teams were Chris Quinn, Alec Burks, Marvin Williams, Paul Millsap and Enes Kanter on one side and the other was Mo Williams, Randy Foye, Jeremy Evans, Brian Butch and Al Jefferson.

The three players that I heard were most impressive were Jamaal Tinsley, Gordon Hayward and Enes Kanter.

Tyrone Corbin was impressed by Tinsley “Oh man he had a great afternoon yesterday, he really showed once we got into contact how he sees things especially in a crowd he is a such a great passer he is a true point guard, he had a good afternoon yesterday.”

Corbin also commented about Kanter “He made some jump shots, he is playing well, he is moving really well due to his weight loss” and Hayward “Gordon had a good afternoon, he really attacked yesterday, his body seems to come back, he had a good afternoon.”

Numerous people talked about Kanter taking and hitting the jump shot. He was better finishing at the rim and he is moving far better. Kanter’s offense wasn’t only the up and under Kanter, he showed more jumpers and went to the middle on occasion as well.

Hayward was the best player on the floor according to some accounts, but still played in the Hayward style of being inside the game.

Shouldn't be any surprise that G is the best player. Along with Millsap he was their best player by the end of the year despite all the Favors hype. Hopefully he can put it together for a full year.
