Alright, I’m leaving another game early and frustrated. Hope it works out the same as last night. The Tatum brain dead drive killed my spirit for tonight.

And Crowder wasn't in the lane for 3 seconds there? They should get rid of that rule because they only call it about once a game and they could call it all game long.. if anything it should be automatic.. something like in your shoe so that they could tell if you were in the lane for too much time and it just called itself.. would force players to move.

Tatum has done that two nights in a row - he is so long he disrupts passing lanes and he has a great feel for where to be. When he masters that he is going to be a defensive beast.

These Jazz sure like to fall over.. it's like three or four Marcus Smarts

Down 13 after three isn't horrible. The C's either win this close or sag here in the fourth and get blown out.

Does ESPN not have the budget for instant replays for something? A foul gets called and instead of showing it the camera will just track someone wandering aimlessly waiting for the free throw.

Its hard to criticize Brad, the guy is a genius...BUT having Hayward play so many minutes when he's clearly not ready feels forced

I’m not sure he can get ready without playing these minutes, though.

I think they’re going to play an ok quarter and lose by 10. How does that make you feel?
Ask again later.

Seriously, I had this circled as a loss. Admittedly, I am higher on the Jazz than most - I think they could be the two seed in the West when all is said and done.

What else are you going to do? He needs game minutes to get right. They barely have any practice time during the season. He looks way off but you don't really have a choice IMO

At the same time..how is he going to get up to speed? Guy needs to get minutes to get his legs back and I doubt they run game speed in practice.

I really want Doris Burke to do the ESPN games vs Van Gundy or Mark Jackson. I wish I could watch Scal & Gorman.

Refs finally call a foul when the ball doesn't go in and the Jazz get the rebound.. Tatum hit your free throws!

Someone please block that stiff out.. and also maybe check how long he's in the lane every possession?

Celtics giving up too many offensive boards to Utah.
Utah has two huge dudes that are always in the lane and really tough to box out.. with that said the Celts also don't seem to try and box out.

He was in the paint for a looooong time. Easy to get an offensive board when you can just camp out.

That was great defense last sequence and the D has been great for the past few minutes. Favors just got away with pushing Mook out of the lane. But you let Rubio shoot those shots all night long.

~15 mins in oct/nov
~ 20-25mins in dec/jan
~ 25-30 mins in feb/march

not very tricky
