    Thumbs up 20 Games - 10 Wins - 10 Losses - Reality Check

    The Utah Pelicans... Errrr Gulzzzz have played the MOST games of any team in the West.

    Road Heavy Schedule = Check
    Most Games Played in the West = Check
    Injuries to our starting PG, SF, Best defensive player, and now the Black Hole = Check
    Toughest November schedule in the league = Check
    Being that the above had happened we are fortunate to be at .500. Could we have won a few others (LA/NO/PHI), possibly but it all balances out.

    I for one am still excited about this team and potential this year. The fact is we won't suck bad enough to get a top 5 pick so why not make the playoffs, get the youngs 'Some' experience, and play spoilers to the Lakers or some team we hate.

    Again, .500 is good at this point!!!!




    PS - Trade Jefferson

    Toughest November schedule?

    They've had the 23rd toughest schedule so far.

    1-6 vs winning teams (the 1 being 9-8 Houston)

    3-9 on the road.

    Reality check.

    These are the makings of a borderline 8th seed at best. Lucky for us the West is so homogenized near the bottom at this point. But we shouldn't fool ourselves... something's gotta change.

    Basketballwise? Since he's fouled like his name sake (the big Turkey; that's a pun people), he's missed defensive assignments like Monta Elis with a 20 point lead, rebounded like Gordon Hayward, and generally played like his ass is a sandwich with the lettuce falling out (awkwardly).

    It's not as bad as I lead on, but he has a long way to go.

    Really because Everything I've read prior to the season and even into the season was that our schedule was the toughest considering our road heavy schedule.

    Ok so you can complain but what is your solution?

    3-5 after starting 0-4 on the road.
    7-1 at home

    What will change is less games, more home games, and more victories.

    What won't change, fans that want this team to end up being in Las Vegas because losing isn't the answer... For ever one Duncan or Lebron stories there are 10 Others .. Please refer to the Wizards, Kings, Hornets, or any other team that hasn't done crap at all in a decade.

    So again, what change besides blackmailing Lebron and forcing him to SLC?

    Why do I have to have a solution? Moreover what possibly could be accomplished by my positing a solution? I'm just laying out some facts. Don't bitch and whine because you don't like what you see. I want the team to win. But I don't think this team is going to win a sufficient amount of games as presently constituted.

    If the Jazz can win more games against Dallas, GS, Rockets, Denver, LA, Portland, and Minnesota than they lose then they will make the playoffs. But what have we seen to think we're on a different level than any of those teams? We're dead in the middle 25%-75% percentile of the West along with 7 other teams. And furthermore road games and games against other winning teams are going to play a large deciding role in how this whole thing shakes out.
