The Utah Jazz are sitting at a decent 12-7 record, but there’s no denying that things have been ugly of late. After giving up huge leads against the Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans leading to too-close-for-comfort victories, the Jazz dropped a pair of contests to both the Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers.
Then, although they got back to their winning ways on Friday in Memphis, it wasn’t exactly a reassuring win. In fact, if there’s such a thing as a moral loss, that’s exactly what this one was.
First off, let me remind the readers that the Memphis Grizzlies entered the game 5-12, the second-worst mark in the Western Conference.
