This is not likely to be a popular post, but its one that will have much debate. I got to looking at the schedules or our team, and the others around us and its not looking great for the Jazz.
Utah has 12 away games and a pretty tough schedule ahead. GSW only has 7 away games, but they still have a tough schedule and they seem to be tanking, reminiscent of last year, but let them the pick is ours unless the balls take a nasty bounce. Houson has 9 away games, but they can easily slide up with the hard part of their year behind them. LA would seem to have the worst of the travel with 12 away games, but they dont have the toughest teams in that schedule. Of course this is purely guess work on my part, along with seeing how teams have been playing recently, but I have made my projection for how the season will round out.
Houston and LA Laker split the season and take the 6th and 7th spots on the playoffs. GSW rounds out in the 8th spot, leaving the Utah Jazz outside looking in at the 9th spot.
Is the Utah Jazz lottery bound for the 14th position once the lottery balls drop? Could we be picking 14th and 16th in the draft? Will Corbin make the apropriate changes that take us a step better and a first round sweep in the playoffs? What do you guys think?
This year may not work out the way we wanted, but we have seen some glimpses of what is to come and its hard not to be excited about the future even though this season may not be as we had hoped. I still think we are about 2 seasons out, but the excitement is building.
