Gordon blames himself and Sloan takes some of it as well.

BLAME ME: The day after Gordan Giricek started over injured shooting guard Raja Bell and responded to his 35 minutes with a season-high 22 points in Tuesday's win over the Los Angeles Lakers, Jazz coach Jerry Sloan kicked himself a bit for Giricek's up-and-down season and sporadic playing time.
"Part of that has to be blamed on me," he said. "I'll take responsibility. . . . We've had two or three guys who have played in that position, and moved him around a little bit.
"He's had his moments where he's played well, he's had his moments where he's struggled a little bit," Sloan added. "I don't mean to say that's his fault. Some of it is probably mine."

I think it's more on Jerry's fault...he should have let Giri played through it if he was struggling.

He has a skill the Jazz need consistently...perimeter shooting. He's shown he can do that..he deserves some PT every night.

I'm glad to see Giri started again tonight.

"Keith made a great play, he stole ball away and maybe he got bumped," Giricek said. "I'm mad at myself. I could have taken another step and made an easy shot like I did before, and I didn't. I didn't do what I was supposed to do. I could have done it better."

Maybe Gordon is learning? Sloan's way is the right way since everyone is playing that way. To me it doesn't matter what page they are on, as long as they are on the same page.
