Quote:
the Jazz proved to Hayward that the roster he leads is capable of winning when the games matter most

have they? a lot to prove yet for everyone

Quote:
Hayward has been the key to the Jazz rebuild since moving on from point guard Deron Williams, and despite one short-lived playoff series to the Spurs in 2012, the rebuild has been shrouded in losses.

It's called tanking and Gobert put an end to it rather they liked it or not.

Quote:
By beating the Clippers in a Game 7 on the road, the Jazz showed Hayward that the grass isn’t always greener in more high-profile markets, with higher-profile players and an owner that is a billionaire several times over like Steve Ballmer.

The Jazz will remind Hayward of that on July 1 — the day when the NBA’s free-agency period opens — before he likely engages in talks with the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. All those teams are in bigger cities with high-profile names, and billionaire owners.

We don't know what they've showed him. If they get crushed by GS what will it show him?

Quote:
It will mark the beginning of one of the toughest summers in recent Jazz memory as they’ll be forced to try to resign Hayward, while making tough decisions about other players on the roster.

Well at least you didn't say that it will only get better because they are all so young still!v

Quote:
even when Thompson did play, there were times when he was limited with Joe Ingles guarding him. Take the Jazz's shorthanded (they played without Gordon Hayward, George Hill, Rodney Hood, and Derrick Favors) seven-point loss to the Warriors at home in December: Thompson scored just 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting, missing all four of his threes and adding three turnovers. That's a great outcome for the Jazz.

And Ingles put up 20 something and almost led them to victory if not for the huge hole they put themselves in early

Quote:
Switching Hill on Thompson will be less of a viable option. And honestly, he's just more able to be a play starter on offense by handling the ball himself in pick and roll.

But an effective defensive game plan for the Jazz starts by limiting one of the Warriors' big four, and Thompson might be the most likely candidate.

Ingles on Curry or Durant might even be better? I imagine we could see him guarding all their guys at different times much like against the Clippers

He’s had back issues in previous seasons, but he mostly dealt with knee issues this year.

Missed a month last year with back spasms

With Golden State on the horizon, playoff excitement and offseason nerves are in abundance in Salt Lake, and it’s all focused on one man: All-Star free agent–to-be Gordon Hayward," wrote Gonzalez.

Not really. If they keep Hayward and lose others with no money to build a team around their 2 top guys than who cares?

Quote:
Ian Clark, who began his NBA career with Utah during the 2013-2014 season as a seldom-used reserve but has turned into a key contributor for Golden State over the last two seasons.

In the Warriors’ first-round series, he averaged 8.5 points per game in just under 19 minutes per contest

Where was this guy with the Jazz? I thought he looked good in summer league and pre-season his last year but he never did shoot well in the regular season and that was supposed to be what he did

Gordon Chiesa has said the highest level of NBA play occurs when teams meet after two days rest. Three days and their timing suffers.

That's why they need to steal the game tonight


Quote:
What the layoff had to do with anything other than Michael Jordan is debatable.

Might want to ask Karl. He was the one missing lay ups

Quote:
Power forward Derrick Favors remains on the Jazz's injury report as he deals with lower back soreness. He was a partial participant in shootaround and is listed as questionable to play in tonight's game.

"Hard to say. We didn't do much," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said when asked how much progress Favors had made from Monday. "But we've been dealing with this. It's nothing new for us to see if a guy can play at game time."

Might not need him so much against these guys anyway

Probably the Jazz’s effectiveness when Gobert was not playing. During the regular season the Jazz were consistently not very good when Rudy left the floor (-2.9 points per 100 possessions), but they found ways to win against the Clippers without him. The Jazz were obviously successful without Gobert in game 1, but I was surprised that they kept that up throughout the series punctuated with a fantastic performance in game 7 without much contribution from the Stifle Tower.

agreed

Quote:
Snyder didn’t get great play from either backup point guard.

I thought Neto looked good

I think Rudy needs to develop into someone who is a league-wide intimidator. Right now he is because of the scouting reports and film sessions. But I want to see him continue to grow into someone who is outright feared.

the fear of Rudy is his biggest strength. no one dares get near him

Dante Exum and his defensive prowess (just look at the lineup combinations and you’ll see why), but due to lack of experience with Exum he hasn’t seen the court much. That has required Quin Snyder to use the equally green Raul Neto or the much maligned Shelvin Mack.

Exum doesn't play because he will be left open on offense. Neto is obviously not as green. You can tell he's played a lot of ball. Dante has not obviously

Quote:
Against the Golden State Warriors, the Utah Jazz will not be able to survive minutes with Raul Neto or Shelvin Mack at point guard.

Neto has looked good to me. I think he can help them a lot. Mack can't play against Ian Clark?

Quote:
The development of Joe Ingles into a knock down 3 point shooter and lockdown defender is one no of us could have predicted at the beginning of the year.

He had done both at the end of the past two seasons. The question was could he do it all year and he has at even a higher level
