Jazz clinch playoff spot in crowded Western Conference
Quin Snyder wasn’t too concerned about the pressure of a win-and-in situation for his Utah Jazz.
Mens Jeff Heath Jersey I’d rather have Womens Seth Roberts Jersey that pressure than the alternative, the coach said.
Now, he and the rest of the Jazz can rest easy.
Man, every day we talk about it. Honestly, I don’t want to play them first. Can’t lie, Morris said after Boston’s off-day workout Saturday. I don’t want to play them first because it’s my brother and we’re going to war. When I go out there — I’ve been telling [my teammates] this is war time. It’s like fighting for your life out here, and I’d hate to see my brother in the first round, to have to be that bully to my brother when I know it’s gonna be like.
The Celtics are locked into the No. 2 seed in the East, and entering Saturday’s action, the Wizards were their most likely first-round opponent, according to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index.
Kevin Seifert of ESPN spoke to several coaches who were strongly against the use of in-game video and their objections were summed up pretty well by Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer felt that video would make it too easy to make the kinds of adjustments that separate better coaches than their less-talented brethren.
If I’m looking at the video, I’ll never be wrong, Zimmer said. I’m against it because I think it takes some of your true coaching skills away and it makes it even for everybody, for good coaches and bad coaches. 鈥?We come in on Monday morning and start watching the tape. And you say, ‘Oh that’s what they were doing.’ Now, you wouldn’t. So I can do this at six minutes in the first quarter and say, ‘Oh here this is what they’re doing. Here’s how they blocked this.’ And I can coach my guys on what’s happening. Whereas in the past, you have to rely on your skills to figure it out.
