After losing 13 times in 14 games, Ty Corbin may be looking to shake up his starting five. "Everything’s open right now," the Utah Jazz coach said Saturday. The Jazz were atrocious to start Friday’s game in Dallas, falling behind by 28 points against the Mavericks before mounting a comeback in the second half. A day later, Corbin said he liked what he saw from Trey Burke, Gordon Hayward, Richard Jefferson, Marvin Williams and Derrick Favors, the unit that started the second half for Utah. "We seemed to flow better with that group," he said. That could mean a change to center Enes Kanter’s role, as Corbin acknowledged that the combination of Kanter and Favors has not produced offensively as he thought it would. "It’s not flowing as well as I thought it would," he said, "and because of being short-handed we’ve stuck with it. … Maybe we split the two guys and we’re able to go at guys more." Kanter and Favors have played just over 300 minutes on the floor this year, the team averaging just 88.8 points per 100 possessions in that time.
Kanter-Favors combo isn’t producing enough for Corbin
