The Utah Jazz are in a fascinating spot. After trading their franchise players over the offseason, they were handed this roster without knowing anything of what they had. With the season ripe to commence, they opted to wait and see.
Now with the All-Star break looming, the Jazz sit at 0.500 (26-26) with just 0.5 games separating them from a guaranteed playoff spot and 1.5 games removed from home court advantage.
The league has demonstrated incredible parity this year, especially out West. The Jazz often find themselves swinging wildly through the standings even on nights they don’t play.
