Williams on Jazz: "There’s nobody walking around pouting, nobody out there hanging their head. To be honest, it’s a big testament to coach."

Jazz would go back to a starting five of Burke, Hayward, Jefferson, Williams and Favors if all are good to go tonight.
Officially, Derrick Favors and Marvin Williams remain game-time decisions for tonight's Jazz-Kings contest.
CORRECTION Jazz starters if all healthy Burke Jefferson Hayward Marvin and Favors
Jazz will go back to starting Burke, Hayward, Jefferson, Williams and Favors.
Derrick Favors and Marvin Williams should both be available tonight, Corbin says.
Both Derrick Favors and Marvin Williams should be able to play
Favors and Williams will play tonight.
Enes Kanter is 39.5% on 16+ foot jumper, Jeremy Evans is 44% on 16+ foot jumper. Both are well above league average on those shots
Jason Smith of Pelicans is one of the best mid range shooters in the NBA at 49% on 16+ footers. 0 3 attempts - Could he shoot +32% on 3's
If a player is shooting 39% from 16+ feet then all he needs to do is shoot 26.3% from 3 to be as efficient. Is it really that simple?
The Jazz are 4-19 and play eight of their next 10 on the road, with one home game vs. Spurs on a back-to-back. Is 4-29 possible? Absolutely.
Jazz off rating with Trey Burke on floor 103.3 with off floor 93.7 - Def rating with him on floor 115.4 with him off 105.5
Summation = demand on Gordon has pushed him into inefficiency. Similar to what happened to Rudy Gay in Toronto.
(2/2) Gordon Hayward true shooting % (includes FT and 3pts for true efficiency) is 49.1% last two years was 56%. League average 52.8%
(1/2) Gordon Hayward usage rate is 25% compared to last year at 21%. (% of team's possessions used when on floor) was 18% in 11-12
Jazz offensive rating with Marvin Williams on the floor 103 with him off the floor 93

Tough loss tonight
Burks played 9:23 in the second half, but wasn't bothered by it: "It's Coach Ty's team. If he want me on the bench, I'll be on the bench."

For perspective, Coach Sloan was hired when I was 10 yrs old (1988), and held the job til I was 33 (2011) and working with him!
Jazz will honor Jerry Sloan on Jan. 31, during a game against Golden State (and Mark Jackson). That's a little funny.
Announcement comes 25 years to the day (12/9/88) that Frank Layden resigned and then asst. Jerry Sloan was promoted to head coach.
