No doubt about it, the Jazz are going through a tough time right now. Their shooting percentages are way down and is their energy and the number of victories they are getting. The last three nights have seen back to back losses by the Jazz. They have been injury plagued this season and that has also hurt them. When both Paul Millsap and Mehmet Okur are out at the same time it spells trouble for the Utah team. Mehmet is still nursing his strained back and no one seems to know when he’ll be back in action. Millsap only missed the one game with his bruised hip but his return for last night’s game against Memphis didn’t give the Jazz the lift they needed to get the win. The fire seems to have gone out of their desire to be a play-off bound team. That is very frustrating for fans who had felt that this year’s team was going to give a great effort. It’s even more frustrating when the sports news is full of accounts of their recently released players, Carlos Boozer scoring 31 points in his last game and Wesley Matthews scoring 36 in his last outing. A few weeks ago, the team was coming together and things were clicking and we’d all like to see that start happening again.
