Is there any doubt that we are going to take a double digit lead in the 3rd quarter and then lose the game? We always get double digit 3rd quarter leads, the Jazz always fall behind by double digits in the 3rd quarter. We always blow the lead (but not always the game), and the Jazz always come back. I know this is going to happen, yet when it actually does happen, I will be furious.
To answer the question of the OP, yeah, if such a thing exists, this certainly qualifies as a schedule loss.
I really hope they start Gordon Hayward tonight and he gets a lot of minutes that could give us a chance to win
While I do think it will be tougher to win, as long as JOB manages the substitutions properly there is no reason that this team should lose just because it is a back to back and 3rd game in 4 days on the road.
I don't know if it would necessarily be a "schedule loss", but it surely qualifies as a "convenient excuse loss". Most do.

Yeah.....it's going to be like those flashbacks of 3 years ago seeing Kirk Hinrich continually Post-Up Travis "The Ballboy" Diener in the paint.
I still get nightmares about that from time to time....

"A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player. Losing yourself in the group, for the good of the group, thatís teamwork."
So what does it say about our guys if this "scheduled loss" turns into a WIN?
means something big? mean nothing at all? somewhere in between?
Sittin on top of the world!
I'll be impressed if we win, but I won't be going off the deep end.
You can't play your way into the playoffs in December, but you can definitely play your way out of them.
I think we should let the win for been so nice to us in draft night
I just hate the idea of of a schedule loss. This is one more reason why I firmly believe the 82 game season should be shortened. Whats the point of having a longer season if a portion of the games will be pointless anyways because one of the teams is too tired to play. Oh yeah I know the point: $$$.
Weren't road games vs the Heat and Lakers "schedule losses"? Wtf? Just o out and play, give it your best effort to come away with the W. Herm Edwards said it best.
