The Jazz were one of the best teams in the league after the All-Star break and have a young core that should improve year over year. Maintaining momentum without a true superstar is difficult though. One thing's for certain, the Jazz are going to be a team opponents dread with their defense and athleticism.
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.
They've improved in net points-per-possession every month of the season. There's real, sustainable growth there. Utah just needs time and good fortune.
Utah is getting better every month. It won't show in the record but it does show in how it plays and in its quality wins, like its shocker over Golden State this week.
Significant progress, under the radar, and Dante Exum even showed signs of life this week. The Jazz are having a really solid rebuilding season.
The Jazz have young talent, are developing skills, beat the teams they should and lose to the teams they should. They are the very model of a modern major rebuilding team.
