Utah Jazz, Half a Season Gone, Half a Season To Go
Posted by Nancy on January 18, 2010
Here we are at the halfway point of the 2009-2010 season and sadly we are not quite where we would like to find ourselves as far as standings at this time of the year.Â The four straight wins they were enjoying Â skidded to a halt last night as the Jazz fell to the Nuggets and their energy infused team leader, Carmello Anthony.Â Anthony played out of his head finishing with 37 points against a team who was awarded less than half as many free throws as the Nuggets.Â The jazz have now lost all three games they have played against Denver so far this season.Â They went into the game only 2 1/2 games behind the division leader.Â They will face the Nuggets one final time in regular season play on Feb 6. but no matter the outcome of that game, the tie-breaker has already been decided. Currently the team standing is 23-18.
Â Unfortunately, the Jazz play like two different teams, one shows up when they’re at the Energy Solutions Arena and a completely different team when they play on the road.Â With approximately 20 games still left to be played on the road that doesn’t bode well for the team.
