I think the Jazz are going to be a threat for the 4th seed in the west for a few reasons,
They had 3 weaknesses last year: 3 point shooting, Defense, and fouling. And have adressed each one of them.
3 point shooting:
The Jazz last year did not have any 3 point shooters at all. literally. They had 0 people in the top 75 in three shooting last year and with the pickups of Mo Williams, Randy Foye, and Marvin Williams they have three in the top 45. They also will have the young guys stepping up (Hayward and Burks). With consistent threats on the outside and Post the Jazz will continue to be one of the best offensive threats in the league.
All three additions for the Jazz have been defensive upgrades for who they are replacing. And with Favors development we will jump “high to the sky”
Ever hear the phrase “addition from subtraction”? Well that is true here, The Jazz traded Devin Harris who was fouling a whopping 3.5 times a game. That’s the highest on last years team by 0.7 fouls! The Jazz management is also going to try to address this problem during training camp.
The Jazz will also get much better on Offense while Favors and the young guys game progress. This team is ready for a big leap this year.
