The positive thing, we were in position to win the game…We gotta continue to work…We’ll continue to work…We’re disappointed, but you know, we understand that, you know, it’s part of the journey. We have to continue to work…We could’ve very easily been 3-0 on the trip, but you know, it’s not that way. We can’t get ‘em back. So we’ll continue to work to get better. – Tyrone Corbin(from Jazz Fanatical)
So, apparently the Jazz need to get better to be able to close out games, let alone think about winning one. The problem is that I wonder whether the Jazz want to get better. The front office has made little if any change to this team through the trade deadline or offseason acquisitions (player or coaching). Corbin himself has also shown little improvement as a coach ,and unlike the young core of the Jazz, he is getting plenty of playing time to learn.
Is it possible for this team to be better without any personnel changes? Yes. As David Locke has mentioned, a few more defensive rebounds
