Tyrone Corbin is the Head Coach of the Jazz, caught between trying to do what he believes is best for the Jazz franchise, and the overwhelming pressure to appease fans. No matter what decision he makes, it seems like he is letting someone down. The Knicks are a team who've only gone 19-17 the last 36 games after starting 18-5. The Knicks are trying to stave off the Nets, Celtics, Bulls, and Hawks to be the clear 3rd best team in the East, believing that they pose the greatest threat to the defending champs in the East. Stuck between mediocrity and being a legitimate threat to beat El Heat, the Knicks will try to depress the Utah Jazz, who are just begging the basketball gods for a win at this point.
