The Downbeat - 16 November 2009 - #101 - The 5 Edition

1_medium  Hopefully Deron will receive word today concerning his daughter's medical issues.  It was reported that they probably wouldn't receive the test results back until today.

Hopefully it's nothing serious.

2_medium  Have to say that going 2-2 on the road trip is pleasant surprise.  It would have been nice to steal that win in Cleveland, but considering our road record last year, .500 on the road is a bonus.  And when you consider that we didn't have Deron for two of those games, it's even more impressive.

Let's hope we can get to the point where .500 on the road is a bad road trip.

8_medium Is it just me or does anyone else that is in their mid 20s to mid 30s still think of the Jazz players as being older than them?    I still have to remind myself that I'm older than all of them.

Speaking of age, were guys like Stockton, Bird, and Magic ever not in their late 30s?

4_medium  Eric Maynor and Wesley Matthews have done a great job filling in for their respective positions.  They've been great on the offensive end and now need to work some on the defensive end.  Right now, their opponents are out-scoring them.  From 82games.com,

Also, from B-R.com it shows that Maynor had a DRtg of 115 and that Matthews' is 114.  So they're giving up 115 and 114 points per 100 possessions.

5_medium  We had this poll in the off-season I believe.  But I would like to resurrect is again.  We should probably have a pool on this.  But when do you think Boozer will be traded?

Give me your dates.
