Jazz Shoot Themselves In The Foot
Posted by Nancy on April 05, 2010
That loss for the Utah Jazz on Friday night to the Lakers was a costly one. Second place in the Western Conference standings was feeling pretty good but that is now a distant memory as the Jazz find themselves in the number four spot and in a virtual 4-way tie with Denver, Dallas and Phoenix. Each time has an identical record of 50 wins and 27 losses for the season thus far, however Utah and Denver have fewer wins against teams in our conference. The Tuesday night match-up against the Oklahoma City Thunder is going to be crucial for the Jazz if they hope to enter the play-offs in a decent position. The Thunder are currently only 2 games behind the Jazz and they have been on a 4 game winning streak compared to Utahs’ 1 game losing steak. There are only 5 games left in the season so every team is going to be out for the kill. Let’s hope it’s the Jazz who make it out alive.
