Corbin calls Jazz shorthanded but capable

-- Asked about his team's position in the Western Conference playoff race, coach Tyrone Corbin says, "We're where we are because of the hard work we've put in and we've got a great opportunity to get into the playoffs. ... We're shorthanded but we're capable. We're going to move things around and give ourselves a chance. We need everybody ready and focused on what we're trying to do and just be ready to play."

-- Asked why point guard Devin Harris is playing so well lately, Corbin said, "Speed. I think he's doing a great job of pushing the ball down the floor. ... He uses his speed to get on top of the basket and break down defenses and finish."

-- Newcomer Blake Ahearn, on what he wants to accomplish in the final eight games of the regular season: "Just take advantage of an opportunity -- whatever it is. Control what you can and make the best of it."

-- Ahearn says he has tried to pattern his game after freewheeling Pete Maravich, whose jersey is retired by the Jazz: "Being a new guy I probably have to control that a little bit. But I know what I can do well. I'm going to stick to it and try to help the team."

-- Ahearn, on how to make a good impression before the end of the regular season: "Being on a couple of teams -- in the summer league, the D-League -- I've gotten a good grasp of what I need to do. I hope in a short amount of time I can prove myself."

-- Steve Luhm
