The Utah Jazz sticks despite the original rotation vs. Brooklyn fraud

The Brooklyn Net did not play as well as they had hoped through seven games. They have lost four of their last five games and are desperate to turn things around against the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night.

In an effort to shake things up, Jarrett Allen, Jeff Green and Bruce Brown started their first season, creating a lineup that didn’t play a single minute back in training camp.

Whether it was a change in the lineup, Kiri Irving’s Buddhism or just the frustration of breaking a recession, the Nets came out as a team ready to fight.

“We were fighting,” Nets head coach Steve Nash said of their recent expansion. “I think we will continue the test. We need to figure out who we are, what we are and where we need to improve and sometimes the boys can mix things up given different opportunities at different times. “

The Jazz have already dropped 21 points to the 2:50 mark in the first quarter. A start lineup that spends a lot of time playing together and getting to know each other doesn’t seem to be able to stop the bleeding or collect their own runs.

The net lead has ballooned to 34 points, and the Jazz have never been able to get even within attractive distances. Still, Queen Snyder had just reached her bench to get the answer.

At halftime, Jazz’s eight leading spinners (Donvan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Mike Conley, Royce O’Neill, Bojan Bogdanovich, Joe Ingles, Jordan Clarkson and Derrick Favres) were just 2 minutes, 16 seconds behind Georges Niang.

Even in the third quarter, when it became clear that the Jazz would not return, Snyder went on his way to bring Mie Oni for only 3 minutes, 41 seconds.

At the moment, the Jazz have already proved that they weren’t ready for the nets, they weren’t ready to play defense, really they weren’t ready to play at all.

It wasn’t until the fourth quarter: 31:31 mark, when Snyder dropped the towel and decided to scatter the white flag, that any other stockpile saw the floor.

Earlier in the season, on the first night of the back-to-back sets, when it was clear that the Jazz Nets weren’t making any fuss in the lead, why wasn’t Shakil Harrison dropped for a few? Can he help Kiri Irving for a few minutes? Why was there no variation from the norm?

In the current seven-game road trip and even throughout this cut-off season, time for practice is limited or non-existent. It is possible that Snyder, in the absence of practice days, prefers to use these early games in the season to run more runs together with his key rolling players.

When asked after the game on Tuesday that limited practice forced Snyder to take his original rotation instead of getting further down the bench, he did not give much insight.

“You want to give these guys a few different opportunities, but that didn’t happen tonight.”

On the one hand, of course, there is the argument that giving players a chance to get things out, the main rotal players will have as much time on the court for him as he could in the short season.

On the other hand, if these vortex players have to miss any games, those who will take steps to fill the gaps may have very limited experience outside of the MOP-up minutes, which they played on Tuesday.

For now, it looks like the Jazz will be working with eight players on a one-night stand with the main rotation and will have to work out their items even though they have no game control.
