Sorry, didn't mean to taunt, but it seems pretty apparent that the Jazz aren't even trying to win at this point. It doesn't even resemble a Jerry Sloan team. Maybe trying hard to keep Bogut in Utah?

Coach Jerry Sloan gave a reason for the dismal shooting percentage.
"We seem committed to watch guys trying to score and play one-on-one instead," he said. "When we get the ball and hold it and clear (the court) out, then we struggle."
Simple things such as executing their designed offense was one of many Utah problems. Only two Jazz players managed to shoot more than 50 percent — Ben Handlogten and Kris Humphries. Handlogten registered his first career double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
But neither he nor his coach were satisfied with the effort, which is something that has eluded the Jazz as the season has progressed.
"They just outplayed us," Handlogten said. "They moved the ball around and got some good shots outside and it just got worse."
The numbers concur.
Golden State pulled down 15 offensive rebounds and nailed 10 3-pointers, including five from Derek Fisher, who led his team in scoring with 19 points

Even Jazz coach Jerry Sloan's postgame comments lacked the disgust and frustration he's expressed so much this season.
He wasn't happy by any means, but he didn't seem surprised, either. As he's said often, the problem continues to be players not buying into the team concept.
"Until you get that, you're just another group of guys running around out there trying to imitate an NBA team," he said.
Sloan liked the way his team started the game, sharing the ball, setting screens and generally attempting to execute an offense. But then, he said, they fell back into selfish mode.
"When you have four guys standing around and watching one guy play one-on-one, holding the ball to try to get his shot, the other four guys are caught in no-man's land, not knowing whether to go rebound the ball or run back down to the other end," he said.
