Andrei taking well to his new role

It's only four games into the season, but it seems the Jazz's experiment of using AK as the sixth man is going very well. 

His line tonight against the Blazers: 17 points, four assists, four rebounds, a block and two steals on 5-8 shooting from the field and 7-8 from the line. Not max-money numbers, but let's be honest, Andrei was never worth max money. 

The second team is looking like it'll be good this year. Knight, Korver, Millsap, Andrei and whoever is a solid lineup. How Utah convinced the Clippers to trade them Knight for Hart I'll never understand. 

I didn't get to watch the game, but a win over the Trailblazers without Deron is a great sign. Even if it means I am wrong on yet another prediction.

Ok, all these Jazz fans say this is the year they'll win the championship.

uhh, no.

The Jazz are unbeaten because they are playing sucky teams, but they just BARELY, BARELY beat them.

Sorry I just needed to get that out. Needed to tell at least ONE Jazz fan.

Undefeated without their best player.

How well does L.A. do without Kobe?

Nick said...

They would actually do really good. They have Bynum, Odom, Gasol, Fisher, Vujacic, they would win. BUT LUCKILY, Kobe isn't injured :)

But I do agree, Kirilenko is doing much better because he feels he's needed.
