With less than 20 games remaining in the regular season, the Utah Jazz continue to boast an NBA best 40-13 record. Ho hum.
As of Monday morning, FiveThirtyEight projects them at a 55-17 record (76% win rate), 5 games ahead of the 2nd place Phoenix Suns in the loss column. They’re the only team projected to finish with a 0.700+ record.
Short of the literal meaning (never losing), the Jazz have had a perfect, Cinderella story season thus far.
While most recognize the strength of the Jazz is in the team, many associate such a strategy with roster parity and no star talent.
