    So I wasn’t able to watch the stream, but it looks like no one played any defense for both teams and weird seeing the Jazz with little assists

    I knew it was a player. Didn't know if was Harpring. Doesn't really matter though. When he said "barring a miraculous comeback" I glanced at the score and the time and there would have been very little miraculous about it. It would have been an NBA game. That's it. He should know better.

    2nd half was lot better play by both units. We definitely going be able to score the ball. Zach went 6-6 from the field plus hit a 3 nice showing. Dame and CJ in mid form. Whiteside did a good job on the boards until he roll his ankle. The 2nd had over 35 points tonight good to see.

    What I got from this game is that Whiteside looks lazy but if you get too close to him (especially other big men) and relax he'll grab the ball out of your hand. He surprised Gobert a few times, who seemed to be more concerned about getting the shot over Whiteside. All the highlights I've seen of Whiteside showed his shot-blocking but he showed he can do more than that in his one-on-one defense.

    Exactly lets keep it real...it was last season. Some of you are too caught up in stats from previous years. That is fine for old vets but how often does that line of thinking blow up in our faces when we are talking about young players who are still improving. The answer is ....pretty much every year.

    I think this is one area where Whiteside will make a difference just by being on the court. The defense will track him to the hoop leaving Collins open for that money mid-range shot. As long as he's making those I hope they keep passing him the ball when he's open.
