Ricky may not be a perfect player, but if he is able to gel with players like Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell, Rodney Hood and gang, he could be a solid Jazz point guard for years to come.

You need players that fit around Rudy and Mitchell. Mitchell is obviously going to need the ball in his hands. How does Rubio make any sense? How did he ever? They often have him playing off the ball like George Hill never left!

Looks about right as far as Mitchell goes

Quote:
“Who was that?,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder says to me, laughing, a couple of days after Rubio’s scoring explosion. “I thought we had a pass-first point guard!”

Don't have that either unless we're talking Neto

Quote:
“I’ve played with a lot of doubts the last few years. I don’t have any doubts anymore.”

it would appear otherwise

Quote:
“Playing five-on-five in half court is sometimes hard for me,” Rubio says. “I’m getting better at it, but I know I’m at my best when I’m in the open court and I can be creative. I can see more. I can use my advantages easier.”

And yet here he is with the slowest team in the league!

Quote:
Meanwhile, Snyder had turned the Jazz into a stealth Western Conference contender

or Rudy did anyway

Quote:
“Sometimes,” he says, “taking the shot is the best option. I like to share the ball and make my teammates better, but sometimes the most unselfish thing or the best thing for the team is to shoot it.” Most opponents, though, will still gladly allow Rubio any shot he desires. He’s shooting 37 percent from the field and 25 percent from 3, still among the worst marks of any starting player in the league.

"He just got up kind of fake-shouldered and I flopped and he got a technical for it," Embiid said with a grin.

So the NBA has to do something about that right? He admitted it was a flop like it wasn't obvious.

Quote:
The Jazz, at the end of a four-game trip, have been struggling as they deal with injuries to four key players.

at least one anyway

Quote:
The Jazz had only 24 percent of their shots at the rim, 90 percent of NBA games end up with teams shooting more so close.

What's new? Stupid for any team to let them inside with their lack of shooting not that the Jazz try to get inside much

Quote:
And then even though they missed 55 shots, they only picked up seven offensive rebounds. That 12 percent offensive rebounding percentage number is just the opposite of what a slow shooting team needs.

Udoh and Favors should at least get some of those

Quote:
Why did Mitchell get up so angrily and shove Embiid? Why did Embiid clearly flop after the push?

They had words in the first half. It didn't come out of nowhere. Mitchell and Gobert could be really special together. I doubt they ever put the guys around them though

the team’s defensive rating has dipped to 102.1 in Gobert’s absence, which ties for 18th in the league.

But Rubio, Sefolosha, Ingles and Favors are all elite and Snyder's defensive system is unparalleled!

scoring was a real struggle and there is a point along the way when scoring becomes so cumbersome that the defense starts to wane. This is happening to the Jazz each night.

who could have imagined that bad offense would affect the D!

Quote:
Joe Ingles is not going to be successful as a high usage player and it means there is a real burden on Hood and Mitchell to shoot.

Whatever. Hood doesn't look to pass. They have other guys that can play

They sucked without Rudy. Quit making excuses. They were supposed to be deep. Snyder is supposed to have a great defensive system and great defensive players. Hood was supposed to be a go to guy....

Rudy in my opinion would equal peak Dwight Howard (Remember him? Beat LeBron in the playoffs?) if he was surrounded by a roster like the one those Magic teams had, oozing shooting at every other position.

you mean like last year?

Quote:
I think DL pulls off a trade this year.

Hard to see him not but I've thought that through his whole tenure so who knows with that clown

Quote:
Exum, Parker, Spida, Gobert, Ingles starters

stop with the Exum bullshit already!

Quote:
1) Trade Rodney Hood to the Washington Wizards for Kelly Oubre Jr.

2) Trade Derrick Favors, Ricky Rubio and Joe Johnson to San Antonio for LaMarcus Aldridge and Tony Parker.

The Spurs are smarter than that and aren't trading Parker and they just signed Aldridge to an extension and I doubt Washington wants to pay Hood. Their way over the tax now after signing Porter I believe

Quote:
Or perhaps trade either Burks or Ingles, instead of Joe Johnson, to give the Jazz more salary cap room next off-season.

Anyone that has any value at all and doesn't fit with the TWO needs to go!

Quote:
the fact that he’s getting the ball a lot more than he has in the past should help produce more assists

He's not now though. They have him playing off the ball. Tell me again how that makes any sense or how he ever made any sense on a team that likes to use multiple playmakers?

Quote:
I think it’s time the Jazz look to make a change at the point guard position in which Rubio’s minutes are dramatically reduced and Raul Neto sees an uptick.

He's a bench player unless he is on a team with shooters. The problem with that is Hood needs the ball in his hands. Moving Rubio to the bench is a bad fit still

Quote:
the Jazz will likely be looking for a replacement point guard anyhow, be it among their ranks (such as in Dante Exum) or in free agency, so rather than continue to struggle with him on the floor, the Jazz need to look to do what will work the best for the team.

Was wondering how long before Exum's name came up. Mitchell needs to play the one and fill the box score like he did in the one game he started there. If Exum can defend and hit open shots there will be a place for him. If not he can go back down under

Quote:
I was among the many that had high hopes for Ricky Rubio coming into the season,

yeah you were calling him an all-star with about half of them. You ready to give up yet?

Rubio has a “potential assist” value of 11.5 per game, but is averaging just over five assists per game. This means he is still making a lot of the right passes, but Utah is failing to convert.

who would have guessed

Quote:
As hard as the losses are to watch, I can’t wait to see what this team looks like next year.

Don't get your hopes up as long as the clown is still in charge. He created this dumpster fire

a .600 home record would be quite respectable if Utah were able to maintain it over the course of the entire season

no it wouldn't
