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

The Utah Jazz have finally waived Raja Bell, however, since the he was released after March 1, the 36-year-old vet is ineligible to play in the playoffs with another team. Bell, who wasn’t on good terms with the Jazz, hasn’t played an NBA game since March 15, 2012.

The Utah Jazz have lost 7 of their last 8 games, including four straight and are currently tied with the Lakers for the 8th best record in the Western Conference. They are now in serious danger of falling out of the playoffs. There is no simple way to fix their problems, but the first place for coach Ty Corbin to start, should be fixing his starting lineup and rotations. It must...
The Utah Jazz have lost 6 of their past 7 games. Ugly. This is obviously not going to cut it if they hope to make the playoffs, especially with Kobe and the Lakers surging. You can hate him or you can love him, but when Kobe says something, he’ll do anything to make sure it happens. Such is the misfortune of the Utah Jazz as they hope to keep a playoff spot and do enough to hold...
Raja Bell and the Jazz were unable to agree to a buyout before the Mar. 1 deadline, making him ineligible for the playoffs.
The Utah Jazz have signed guard, Travis Leslie, to a 10-day contract. The 22-year-old was selected by the Los Angeles Clippers in the second round of the 2011 NBA draft and appeared in 10 games for them as a reserve. After being waived at the finish of the Clippers’ 2012-13 training camp, Leslie joined the NBA Development League’s Santa Cruz Warriors. He will wear No. 23 for...
The Jazz will sign Travis Leslie.
Going into the Knicks’ game Saturday night at the Garden against the Utah Jazz, the team received terrible news that Amar’e Stoudemire would be undergoing a right knee debridement, the same procedure he had done on his left knee earlier in the year, and miss six weeks. Do the math, and that comes out to the rest of the regular season.
The remaining healthy Knicks responded.
