Usually, pre-match press conferences last 10 minutes. We talk about the opponent, the possible injuries and the shape of the players coming out of the penalty shootout. On Tuesday, Quinn Snyder doubled down on his stance because he had something to say. For a week, jazz wasn’t at its best, between humiliating defeats on the floor, and direct verbal sparring between the team’s stars.
First, he defended the qualities of his team in “money time”. The Jazz team has made a major of wasting big leads, including two recently against the Clippers and Warriors, and has provided their version of the facts.
” People often use statistics to write an article, and it is important to do so responsibly. Cautious. ” I think we can all agree that a 10 point lead in the first quarter is different from a 10 point lead in the fourth.“.
In each match, Donovan Mitchell only makes two passes to Rudy Gobert
He obviously would like the press to focus only on meetings where the Jazz leads 10 points or more in the fourth quarter, and then has a record of 3 wins vs 4 losses. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, if we look at the lead with 10 points and more during the entire match, the record is 3 wins for 12 losses…
But Quin Snyder would also like us to take into account the fact that the Jazz were ahead by 10 points and more, which is a sign that the team was playing well. ” We can take note of that and say to ourselves, we’ve lost our lead, but in seven games we’ve also come back to score three times, so that means we’re a suspended team. It also meant we were playing very well because we were on top by more than 10 points in the fourth quarter. Most of the time, I prefer to progress by more than 10 points over less than 10 points.. »
Then another topic that bothers him the idea that Donovan Mitchell The personal cheek he’s ignoring Rudy Gobert in the attack. This week, a stat was released, and it hurts: Donovan Mitchell averaged two passes per game for Rudy Gobert. We’re not talking about assists, but only assists… Those who criticize Donovan Mitchell have also fired, for comparison, Clint Capella’s Trae Young stats.
“Tra Young and Capella, is this the pick comparison? Well, we know that out of the 3,442 possessions, Young made 472 assists for Capella. For Donovan Mitchell, we have 1,600 possessions and Rudy 150 assists. Roughly, it’s the same ratio, that’s Right, isn’t it?”
Quin Snyder tries to calm critics
Once again, the paper takes his word for Quinn Snyder, Trae Young makes 14% of his passes for Capella, while Donovan Mitchell makes 9% of his passes for Rudy Gobert. But… much less because the glass-cleaning site of 2,351 properties had Donovan Mitchell and Rudi Gobert together on the floor.
According to Jazz’s communications director, Quin Snyder considered only the property that Mike Conley was in the field with.
Far from advanced stats, which he didn’t pick well, Quin Snyder wants to defend his ass. ” Let’s not try to create confusion among some of these players, especially using stats. We should be more responsible than that. We don’t play well all the time. We want a better player. But we will not succeed when we try to say that one player does not pass to another player. »
To him, the idea that Donovan Mitchell is ignoring Rudy Gobert in an attack makes no sense.
“The idea that Donovan doesn’t count Roddy when he’s in a good position under the circle…” Quinn Snyder sighs without finishing his sentence.. “It got to the point where when Donovan answers questions about it, we conclude here that he doesn’t pass it and that there is a problem between them…Personally, I don’t see all that.”
