Default Re: Season of the tank!-2013-14 regular season

Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin can’t wait to face new Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek, his former Jazz assistant and Suns teammate.

Hornacek was hired by the Suns after being on the Jazz staff in various capacities since 2007. The sharpshooter played in Utah from 1994 through 2000, including two trips to the NBA Finals.

“It’ll be great. He had a great win his first game out,” Corbin said, referring to Phoenix’s season-opening 104-91 victory over Portland on Wednesday. “I’m happy for him there.“

Corbin said he’s kept in contact with Hornacek since he took his new gig.

“He’s doing well. He’s enjoying himself,” Corbin said. “He lived in Phoenix, so he’s really enjoying being there. It’s a great opportunity for him and he’s excited about it.”

That said, Corbin would love to hand Hornacek his first coaching defeat.

“Absolutely. On his home floor,” he said, smiling. “We’ll say ‘Hi’ to him and smile before the game, but once the battle starts … he’s going to try to get us and we’re going to try to get him.”

If they're going to win on the road at all this as good a chance as they'll have.
