Quin Snyder Rumors
The NBA admitted that officials missed a crucial foul call in the Utah Jazz loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday night. With 32 seconds remaining in the game, Clarkson attempted a three-pointer that missed wide to the left with the Jazz leading 116-114. Clarkson and Jazz coach Quin Snyder both appeared to notice the Warriors foul looking to the officials for a whistle that never came.
Michael Singer: Asked Michael Malone who his coach of the year would be. He mentioned Monty Williams, Quin Snyder, James Borrego, Tom Thibodeau and Scotty Brooks as the top candidates in his mind. Also added, he can’t believe that Jerry Sloan never won. “Hard to even fathom.”
Eric Walden: Quin Snyder, on the Utah Jazz’s play tonight: “We didn’t execute the way we wanted to. In a game like this when certain players are not able to play, your margin for error is really small.” Added that early turnovers led to Phoenix transition and easy shots.
According to Vegas, the frontrunners for this season’s Coach Of The Year award are Quin Snyder in Utah, Monty Williams in Phoenix, and Tom Thibodeau in New York. The one thing all three coaches have in common is that each of their teams have exceeded expectations. Usually, when we can’t explain why a team is better than we thought they’d be, we assume it must have something to do with the coaching.
Eric Walden: Quin Snyder, on the source of the Jazz’s errors: “It’s a focus thing. It’s something we’re aware of. It has to be important every possession. That’s gonna be crucial for us if we’re going to win.”
