the "Spurs Killer" Josh Howard off the bench.

i don't like this matchup for the Jazz, Kawhi Leonard vs. Favors (pushing him to the perimeter and most likely to the corner where he won't help out vs. a pick and roll in the middle). also, Diaw starting already puts way too much pressure on Milsap to guard him off the dribble. a healthy dose of more Pick and Rolls with ball movement should do the trick, they will be too big and slow to recover on rotations.

if i were them, i would've gone small and benched Milsap, not big (just me anyway).

Millsap plays one the "big" positions, but he's not really big. Any small forward can guard him. I don't see this making a difference. I agree with Jose, they've tried to "out big" the Spurs because people think that's their weakness. Well it isn't. They need to try and out run the Spurs.

What the Jazz need to start is a collection plate for their fishing trip!

Maybe they can get a volume discount, with Cuban picking up the tab!

Going big only helps if your bigs are at least as good as the opponents and in this case they are not! Beside who comes off the bench? It's just desperation!

Three bigs huh? Well...when things aint workin, you gotta change up. One of two things will happen tonite, either it will be raining threes or the lane will open up so wide that Tony Parker will be prancing to the rim.

I think the big aren't gonna be able to stop the Spurs offense. Maybe we will kill them with the 3's tonight.

I think they should have done that in game 2 not game 4. Corbin is not showing me much on the coaching and less on the decision making end of things. I don't think he is the answer in Utah. Also is Raja Bell injured? Why not give him a try?

I agress, Kawhi will not be guarding Favors.....he wil be on Millsap. Should be interesting....
