We are now all alone in second place. I have an irrational amount of confidence in this team. In every game this season at basically every point of each game i have felt like the jazz will win. I look at the roster and see so many good players. So much balance. Versatility. I think this team is much better than last years team. The only slight concern i have even had so far this season is conleys early struggles but even then i would remember the bricks of rubio and how the defenses defended him (or didnt in this case) and i still felt fine with conley. He is now playing how we expected him to.

Green, mudiay, and bojan have all been good pick ups. Green has been slightly disappointing overall but I have been a huge fan since the first time I saw him in a jazz uniform. Its so weird that he hasn't had a good career. He has the perfect size, length, athleticism and skillset for todays nba. I mean he is basically the perfect prototype player for todays game. 6 foot 9, 235 pounds, long, athletic, can shoot and handle. On paper he should be very good. Hoping the jazz can get him to his full potential.
Mudiay has been fantastic. Bojan is amazing. Conley is a big upgrade at point guard. Mitchell has made a leap. Royce is solid. Rudy is a monster. Quin is a great coach. Exum will be back soon for depth. Ingles will get there soon. Bradley is learning how to contribute and we are still winning.

This could be the year!

The stats say our offense is mediocre at best overall, but that definitely doesn't align with the eye test, or just my feeling when watching the team. Feels like we have quite a few go to guys who can get us a bucket. I love when Bogey, Conley, etc. start taking over. such a contrast to Mitchell needing to save our bacon every night.

Defense seems awesome, though SOOO dependent on Rudy.

Team has been through basically every type of game already, 1/8th into the season. Should only get better as they learn to play the system and with each other. Tons of offense being left on the court at the moment. One of the toughest early schedules in the NBA, and still 8-3.

Defense might regress just a bit, but offense should improve dramatically over the course of the season.

This is the stretch, everything should be rounding into form. Choo Choo

A good sign is remembering this iteration of the Jazz have been traditionally slow starters in the regular season. Not until after New Year's do they start clicking and go on extended winning streaks. I believe the last 2-3 years, at this time, the record was .500 at best. When this team starts firing on all cylinders, it looks like there won't be a need for scrambling to dig out of the hole the early part of the season dug for them. I'd imagine a top three seed should be expected.

Nets up 12 on the Nuggets at the half. Hopefully they learned some lessons from losing to us and rectify that tonight.

Play them Friday. I’d like to go undefeated this week. We play Minnesota twice.
