    We are awesome at home, but still haven't been tested by a good team. The Lakers were a mess when we played them.
    The Nuggets have been meh on the road this year. Not sure it they qualify, but they could still beat us.

    I think the nuggets are a good test. If we win, it will be a good win.

    So the pertinent numbers from the article are that over the last 30 years, the Jazz have won 75.2% of their home games and 45.0% of their road games.

    The article seems to imply that the disparity is abnormal ("Utah Jazz history has been filled with absolutely dominating home teams" and "we're a bad road team historically"), but fails to provide context.

    Over the same period, NBA teams on average win 61.7% of their home games, and 38.3% of their road games.

    So the average NBA disparity is a factor of 1.61. The Jazz' disparity is 1.67. Or, to normalize the percentages to compare to the NBA average, it's 62.6% and 37.4%. It's an epidemic, to be sure.
