Props to the Jazz

Props to the Jazz tonight for beating the 76ers. Despite losing DWill for the road trip and receiving heavy criticism from us fans (yes... me) for not giving great effort, the Jazz came out and got the job done. That's what I'm most proud of... the team faced adversity and then responded. We only had one point guard on the roster who was healthy and yet Maynor managed to lead the team. Boozer played a strong game, scoring 24 points and pulling down 12 rebounds. We had balanced scoring from the rest of the starting five. And our boy, the rookie, Wes Matthews continues to shine. He was a starting force tonight. Matthews finished with 16 points on 5-11 shooting and 3-4 from 3-point range. Excellent game! Again. This game doesn't speak too well to the condition of the 76ers. They must be in bad shape, since we went into their place and blasted them off the floor... (A Jazz squad suffering from its own internal disarray). Hopefully, we can continue tonight's effort into the next game. I'm not necessarily planning on it.

All sarcasm/cynicism aside, it is pretty amazing what a little bit of effort and team play can get you, even in the NBA. It doesn't always make up for talent, but sometimes it really does.
