EMPTYING THE NOGGIN – A win is a win is a win.

• Solid win for the Jazz. Detroit is not good but the schedule gives you win you better take them and we will take this one.

• This season has had a little bit of everything. We talked today on twitter and sulia that the Jazz struggle with the line-up of Jefferson and Kanter and while Tyrone tried it for a little while he instead went with Jefferson and Evans to close the game. Yes Jeremy Evans and it worked great. Evans played a super game. He had 8 points, hit some jumpers, grabbed 7 rebounds and had a career high 5 assists. He still struggles at times with some defensive issues with his lack of size but he played very very well.

• Marvin Williams had as strong a game as he has had since the opening night. He was very active made plays and impacted the game with hustle, outside shots and played his usual good defense.

• The Jazz played with Burks, Hayward. Marvin, Evans and Kanter and the group moved the ball, ran the offense, made sharp cuts and played a nice brand of team basketball. This is how the game is supposed to be played. Guys go the ball and swung it rather than sitting on it, they got the ball and they either made a move took a shot or swung it in a hurry. It was rehreshing.

• I am surprised how much of a ball stopper DeMarre Carroll is when he is playing the in the starting line-up.

• The Jazz level of detail late in the game was very good and the offensive execution was strong.

• Mo Williams late game play was solid and he finished with 20. He also started the game with great tempo. He is outracing the other team for a few fast breaks a night with the Devin Harris 1 man blur fast break.

• Al Jefferson didn’t play well tonight but late in the game made a few huge buckets to fend off the run by the Pistons.

• Kanter linked his 5th straight good game for the Jazz. He is playing very well and a good portion of tonight was against Greg Monroe in the post which is a top line big and he used the scouting report, forced him right and played him very well. The scouting report has not always been Enes friend and tonight he showed nice growth by executing the game plan correctly.

• The Jazz will need to be better than this to win the huge road games coming up but this is a win and we needed that badly.
