One Last Prayer

With 15 games to go in the 2012-13 NBA season; the Jazz, even as deflated as they are, have one last chance to prove they can hang in this playoff race with the Lakers and Rockets.  Houston is coming off a miserable performance against the Warriors on Sunday where they got blown out of their own building 108-78.  The Jazz were no better in their last outing losing to the Knicks without their 3 best players 90-83 in SLC.

This game should be a hard fought, high emotion game that should make it a very playoff type atmosphere.  However, too many games lately should’ve had those type of emotions only to let the fans watch a game of no heart and no desire to fight.  Which Jazz team will show up?  The one that took down Memphis or the one that got beat by a gimpy Knickerbocker team?

The young guys will show up because they are still having fun and like the competition, where the vets like Al and Sap seem to have left already.  It’ll be curious to see if Corbin changes anything if he sees the same things that the fans saw last game.  Probably not.. (we can always hope for an improving coach because he can’t get much worse in my opinion).  After tonight the media will either be talking lottery and the point guards available that are playing in March Madness, or the media will be talking about a Jazz team that still has fight and is only one game out of the playoffs and owning the tie breakers on both teams.

Please Jazz make it the latter!
