    Jazz are only 2 games back of where I had predicted them to be at this point...and that was projecting a 50-win season. I put them at 26-20 at the end of January and 35-23 at the end of February. This is exactly where I thought the Jazz could/would make their run. I'll be disappointed with anything less than 14 wins in the next 20 games.

    Don't forget Foye!
    Unfortunately, I see the Jazz putting together a decent run, thereby giving Kevin O'Lindsey an excuse to stand pat with the team as is.

    Alot of you have to be ****ing kidding yourselves.

    1. Moves will be made. Either by the trade deadline or at the end of the season. Relax boners.
    2. If you think it's tough watching them now, ohhhhh just you wait. When we hand the riens over to the youngins we're gonna lose, ALOT, for an extended period of time. SEASONS possibly.

    The FO is not going to just make a trade cause you want them to. HA! They will wait for value, and if that means waiting til next year to start the real rebuild, then so be it.

    As far as your number 2 goes.... i dont see how we are going to lose alot for an extended period of time when we have very good young players and we will have lots of money to replace the older average players with more old average players if we so choose too, or we can trade those older average players for more older average players.

    You act as if millsap, foye, jefferson, watson, tinley, marvin are some kind of special irreplaceable type of player, the likes of which we can never find again.

    Trust me, there are plenty of mo williams, randy foyes, josh howards, raja bells, and marvin williams out there in the nba for the jazz to get.... Millsap and jeffy are a little bit harder to come by, but by no means difficult. (we got jeffy for basically nothing, and millsap was a second round pick)

    I think we will be ok without guys like them... and if we do suck as bad as you suggest, then we can just pick up some more decent vets and have a starting lineup similar to what we already have and go back to being middle of the pack 8th seed type of a team.

    The thing that makes us as good as we are right now is that our bench is better than everybody else..... our starters are very average and worse than most of the leagues starters.

    First game out of the way, and Utah wins.

    1-0 so far.

    2nd toughest game out of the 20 as well and we really put the hammer down most of the night. Only the OKC game looks more daunting IMO.

    I hope CJ has 30 points on 50 shots next game.

    Hold the home court and Ty has a career winning record after the Houston game.

    Good post Motown -I predict the Jazz will finish with 46 wins, good enough for a 7th seed.

    I came up with this total by taking our home winning % and applying it to the remaining home games 25 games at 75% winning = 19 wins at home. I did the same with our road games 17 games x 37.5% =6 wins. I also expect that we will go on a run and we may pick up an additional win or two due to momentum. So 47 or 48 is not out of the question.

    However if a trade occurs it changes everything.

    I'd like to inform you fellow less whiny Jazz fans, that the Jazz are now tied for the 7th seed with Huston

    ....I say 15-5! We will have the number one seed, a bye week, and all our playoff games played at home! Oh, wait! I'm thinking about football and the Atlanta Falcons! My bad!

    i tend not to look game-by-game but rather look at groups of games.

    cle, was - the only way they lose anything here is if they're rusty from all the time off.
    @lal - highly unlikely we sweep the lakers on the season. plus, they're all healthy now.
    ind, hou, noh, por- i would guess they lose one in this week-long homestand, either ind/hou.
    @por - on the back half of a home-and-home overnight set, we probably drop this one
    sac, mil, chi - once again, i'd say they are likely to lose one of the three.
    @sac - i'll give them this one, mostly on the inverse of the LAL logic - SAC doesn't take the season series from us.
    okc, @min - i might give us minny w/ love out, but for a couple straight years now we've mailed it in before the break, so 0-2 is poss.
    gsw, @lac, bos, atl, cha - they def lose one, possibly 2 in this stretch.

    so that's either 13-7 or 12-8.

    meanwhile, denver (#6) has a cake schedule. GSW (#5) has 16 of their next 23 games over the same stretch on the road (and the home games are lac, okc, dal, phx, hou, phx, sas), but have a 3 1/2 game lead on us going in.

    i think a 12-8 stretch will help to keep teams 8 through 11 off our backs, but not sure it'll move us up a ton.

    I'm going to agree with Nerd for the most part. I think 13-7 is the most likely, and that well move us up one spot to 6th. I think GS (without Curry) has a tough time with that schedule and Denver might even pass Memphis by the time the next 20 are done.

    I see us going 11-7 over the next 18. That would put us at 33-26, seven games above .500, and quite possibly as high as the 5th seed. Maybe we can catch fire and go more like 13-5 which would put us at 35-24. Interesting.

    All I can say to this is, bring it on! I'm fine with that scenario!

    BTW, the only reasons this team is tough to watch is the Big Al iso ball and how they glue the youngsters to the bench even if they are playing well.
