Jerry Sloan with the Jazz Starting Five after Sunday's Loss to Minnesota.
I have always felt the same as Boozers Hammy does: Sloan has no idea how to prepare the team for the bottom feeders. Guaranteed he was at the Home Depot 30 minutes before the game when Phil Johnson called and said "uhhh, are you still picking me up." Thanks Sloan. And thanks Jazz for losing to teams that suck over and over again.
Here is my bitter prediction of the last eight games: (Thanks for the Idea Moneyman Memo.)
Minnesota (home): Loss (A.K. misses game because he locked his keys in car. Price, Collins, and Ty Corbin out with the flu.)
San Antonio (home): Loss (D-Will, Boozer, Brewer out with Flu. A.K. thought it was an away game. Shows up in S.A.)
New Orleans: Loss (D-Will dominates Paul but rest of the team is out with the flu. D-Will and Fez lose by two.)
Dallas: Loss (Dirk plays in cast to lead the Mavs to a 101-98 Victory)
Denver (home): Win (As bitter as I am I still will not give Denver credit.)
Houston (home): Win (A.K. believes it is the first round of the playoffs actually plays. Gets triple-double and leads team to victory.)
San Antonio: Win (Ginobli, Parker, Duncan, Finley, Bowan all sit, Jazz beat S.A. D-League Team by one. A.K. in dog house with wife. Misses game.)
Jazz go 4-4 down the stretch, win division, but not home court. Thanks for nothing Jazz.
