Dallas 115, Utah 108   2 comments

Like a kick in the groin.

dwillfan nails it on the head (while called Dirk Dick)…

You guys choose tonight of all nights to NOT give Harp minutes? Dick was hitting every shot he threw up, and all the king’s horses and all the soft Jazzmen just kept letting him. We all know what a “fragile” mental constitution Dick possesses, and how he gets rattled and thrown off his game by the slightest sign of physicalness. So why didn’t we the Jazz take advantage of it? Isn’t that what, in fact, we have Harp for?

On that note… there are 3 types of teams in the league.

  1. Those that love the run-and-shoot, and avoid physical basketball like the plague.
  2. Those that play the half-court style, but would like to avoid physicality wherever possible.
  3. Those teams that’ll pound you into the ground… and then do it again in the 2nd half.

No Knees is a great play against the 3rd type of team, an alright play against the 2nd type of team (especially if they start attacking early… anything to make them think twice), and a horrible play against the 1st type of team. Which makes it obvious which games he gets the most minutes in…

The Jazz were totally dominated on the boards. ‘Sap wasn’t ready, and it showed.

So, at the mid-way point of the season, the Jazz are 24-17, good for 3rd in the Northwest (3 games back for Denver, 0.5 games back of Portland) and 8th in the West (8 games back, and .5 games ahead of 9th place Dallas). The West is a 9-team race… the difference between the 9th & 10th place teams is a whopping 10 games.

  1. all i can say is, if tmac and artest are back on 1/21, and they’re playing well, i want to see a lot of harp. and maybe collins too.

  2. Agreed.
    Flop won’t have much to do against those two (T-Mac will probably be out, Artest is iffy), but No Knees for sure.
