The team hasn’t been to the NBA Finals since the 1997-1998 season when they lost to the Chicago Bulls.
Lakers, Rockets, Clippers, Golden State, are the teams we heard the most when analysts talk about the Western Conference. Today, Jazz can be added too.
We didn’t see this coming. Utah is not only in first place in his conference but in the league too. They have an amazing 26-6 record.
On February 24th the team won against the actual NBA Champions. Sadly, Anthony Davis and Dennis Shröeder are not playing with the Lakers at this moment.
Maybe this is a surprise, but if we really analyze the team is not that rare. Jazz has amazing and talented players. Right now six players are averaging double digits.
– Joe Ingles 11.5 points
– Rudy Gobert 14 points and 13.3 rebounds
– Bojan Bogdanović 15.3 points
– Mike Conley 16.3 points
– Jordan Clarkson 18.3 points
– Donovan Mitchell 24.1 points
Regarding that list, Jordan Clarkson is the favorite for the 6th man award. It is something very good for him since his name was falling down in the league, with Utah he is having the opportunity to show everything he can offer in the NBA.
Rudy Gobert is another candidate with a strong possibility to win an award. In his case is the Defensive Player of the Year. The French player has an almost impenetrable system for the rival attack.
Donovan Mitchell is a star on the team. Not only leading the point-scoring with averaging 24 points, but also a 40% from the triple area. We hope one day he will be in the starting five of an All-Star Game.
Will this team’s streak end? Or could Utah Jazz make it to the promised land?
