Rush and Corbin met Wednesday morning before the team’s game in Sacramento to talk about Rush’s frustrations. "I had a good talk with Coach," the shooting guard said. "He let me know what the deal was." Corbin’s message: "I just wanted him to play, play relaxed and play without apprehension." Rush saw time again against the Kings and rewarded his coach by knocking down three of his four attempts from three, grabbing two rebounds, dishing two assists and coming up with a pair of blocks.

Jefferson, who's started for Utah since being traded from Golden State this offseason, simply disagrees with the critics. “Now as far as lashing out and putting pressure on a coach, that’s unfair. … Everybody’s an armchair quarterback,” Jefferson said. “Everybody has their own fantasy football team. Everybody has their own idea of what should go down. “But,” he added, “I can tell you from being in this league and having multiple Hall of Fame coaches that Ty is doing a very good job. He’s in a very difficult situation with a lot of young guys and a lot of injuries, and he’s doing a very, very good job, and I say that with the utmost confidence.” Deseret News

Tyrone Corbin doesn't appear to be in any danger yet, since the mandate from ownership is for player development over wins and losses. (Plus, with assistant Jeff Hornacek now coaching the Suns, there isn't a logical interim replacement on the bench.) With lottery pick Trey Burke back from injury to solidify the point guard position, let's see if things get better. CBSSports.com

One coach who could have cause to be nervous is Utah’s Tyrone Corbin. The Jazz will be the last team to win a game, starting the year with five straight losses, and are dealing with inexperience all over the roster. Sure, there are injuries, but Corbin points out that there is no cavalry waiting to rescue the Jazz, and the players will have to fight the temptation to throw in the towel. “This is where we are. ... We don’t want to give up and start thinking we can’t get over the hump. We have got to continue to fight. One of the fears you have with a young group, because they haven’t been through it before, is to know how you get over the hump.” Sporting News

Corbin’s agent, Los Angeles-based Steve Kauffman, said the sides have not begun negotiating an extension. "I don’t expect anything to be done," said Kauffman, whose other clients include Jeff Hornacek and Monty Williams. Salt Lake Tribune
