Can Utah Jazz catch Los Angeles Lakers once schedules balance out?

With a quick glance at the NBA standings, the Los Angeles Lakers definitely stand out as an elite squad given their league-best 17-2 start which includes 10 straight victories. Early into the season, the Utah Jazz are already five games behind them in the standings, a gap which might seem difficult to overcome.

However, as I noted earlier today, the Utah Jazz will soon find themselves in a stretch of games that are almost all extremely winnable. Following the conclusion of their current five-game road trip and a home bout against, ironically, the Los Angeles Lakers, they’ll be favorited in 18 of their next 20 contests giving them an excellent opportunity to surge up the standings.
