Gordon Monson: Offseason changes were supposed to make the Jazz a better shooting team. They haven’t. Not yet.

Anybody around here remember what a swish sounds like, the sweet popping of the net when no iron is drawn?

They sought to upgrade their shooting during the summer, and that was the cause of much anticipation and elevated expectation regarding the team’s prospects now. But a fourth of the way through this season, on the whole, they are suffering from a lack of accuracy. And when the shots don’t drop, the Jazz’s collective force and focus tend to lag alongside. Or is it the other way around?

Quin Snyder is more concerned about the elements that lead up to field goal attempts — spacing, screens, ball movement, unselfishness, court awareness, tough resistance.
