The Stat of Damnation

The one key fact that damned the Jazz last night was their start: They gave up 41 points in the 1st quarter and allowed the Lakers to shoot 86% from the field.

But on a brighter note, Jarron Collins played 13 minutes and had 0 points, 2 boards, and 4 great fouls. Good work Jarron.

And on an even better note, U-92's radio-jockey proclaimed this morning that he is not giving up on the Jazz. So as Jazz fans, we definitely have that going for us.

The first quarter was another utter disaster. To be totally honest, I'm not sure the Lakers would make 86% of their shots if you ran them up and down the court for 12 minutes and asked them to shoot from a variety of different locations with no defense on the court. It's a truly stunning number.

Collins doesn't play so he can be an offensive force. Did you notice Gasol just dumping shots over Millsap all night? Collins is valuable in this series because he's a solid defender. (4 fouls, if anything, is evidence of the fact that he's was a little -- dare I say? -- nasty.)

Considering Collins played most of the 1st quarters in both Games 1 and 2, I'm not sure he's much of a factor on the defensive end either. The sad truth of the matter is that Bynum and Gasol pretty much score at will -- especially early -- on Boozer, Collins or Millsap.
