Power Rankings
They don't have a signature win yet this season. They played well against good teams on the East Coast road trip but don't have a game that really shows how good they are. They face the Thunder, Clippers, Pelicans and Warriors in the next week. That defense is about to get tested. They've fallen to seventh defensively already. Paper tigers or dangerous beasts?
A .500 team at No. 10. I don't have to really agonize over this one. The Jazz stayed close with the Cavs and were right there with the Heat. You know when those kinds of performances matter? When you play the way they do and when your defense is as good as theirs.
They have the 17th-best offense per 100 possessions and are still third in net points per possession. That's how good their No. 1-ranked defense is. Schedule has been absolutely butter, though. Let's see how they do vs. the Cavs, Heat and Hawks this week on an East coast road trip.
The Jazz opened up with a three-game road trip and still manage to lead the league in scoring defense nearly a week in. Their defense is carrying them, but they start to play the West this week with a road trip back East to play tougher teams on the horizon. They need to get Gordon Hayward and their shooters going.
A trendy pick for the 8th seed in the West but still young and their backcourt remains a mess. Good news: Rudy Gobert was actually the cause of the blood moon eclipse Sunday night when he jumped in the air and put his hands up.
I want to believe based on their talent, style, and approach, that they'll make the playoffs next season. But who do you believe will drop out? Either way, Utah's path for the next five years is tremendous.
The Jazz are young, exciting, have a franchise center, a developing point guard and two star players in Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors. You'd think they'd be a lock for the playoffs next year. But tell me who's falling out of the West top nine?
Would you believe the Jazz are 23-17 in their past 40? (HT: Jazz broadcast team.) Even the bad teams in the West are good!
Utah is stealth good. They're ninjas at being good. They look like a really terrible team and then you show up and all of a sudden they're everywhere.
Jazz players said this week that coach Quin Snyder's message has included numbers that show they've improved, even if it hasn't felt like it. The Jazz have won three of four. It's starting to feel like they've improved.
