Confessions of a Jazz Fan

15 12 2009

The month of December has not be a merry one for the Utah Jazz, and as a Jazz fan, it has been utterly frustrating watching them at times.  We all feel like the Jazz have the potential to be a really great team, but we are just seeing glimpses of it every other night.

Last night, the Jazz lost to the now 4-21 Minnesota Timberwolves.  That is bad in itself, but two of those four wins are against the Jazz, and last night’s loss was in Utah.  Last night’s game was one of the more frustrating games I have ever watched, with poor defense, lack of hustle at times, and of course letting the team with the worst record in the West, win.  And to top it all of, they gave up a career high 28 points to Jonny Flinn, a rookie.  Two of those points came with three seconds left to put the T-Wolves up for good.

I am always curious what Jazz team will show up to play.  Last Monday they beat the Spurs, then lost to the Lakers in Los Angeles.  In that Laker game, they only managed to score six points in the 4th quarter, not good.  The Jazz then come home and beat the Magic, and get revenge on the Lakers, both at home.  So what happens after that? They lose to the T-Wolves.  It doesn’t add up if you are a Jazz fan, and it is frustating as can be.

The Jazz play at New Jersey tomorrow, and I am honestly concerned about that game.  I have no confidence with their play right now.  Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer have been playing well, but the other guys needs to pick it up, and with Kyle Korver and C.J. Miles back from injury plus rookie Wes Matthews still playing well, it will be interesting to see what the rotation will be.  If they are a good team, they need to put the weaker opponents down, and I pray that they can do that against the Nets.
