The Jazz have always been known at winning most of our games at home. The past 4 seasons we’ve been pretty dominant at home: 31-10, 37-4, 33-8, 32-9. Pretty good at home i would say. But this year we’ve already lost 6, completely uncharacteristic of the Jazz, even more uncharacteristic is the fact we are 10-4 on the road.
Since we went 37-4 at home 3 years ago, we’ve fallen off at home every year but have gotten better all but 1 year on the road and having the first winning road record in 8 years, last year. It may be we are just still looking for that chemistry on the court while at home or the fact that we just love getting down by 10+ every game, but they need to turn it around at home and finish the next 24 games (at home) 20-4 to keep us in the 30 home wins category and still keep it up on the road.
If we keep up the current pace we’ll be 56-26 (home: 26-16 road: 30-12, approximating) Great road record, but last year the Celtics were the only playoff team to have a better road record than home record. It’d be great to have a 30+ road record but the home needs to be there too, getting 60+ wins would be fantastic, and it looks like to get the 1 seed we’ll have to get 60+ to beat the spurs.
Jazz have to find the home court problem and fix it now.
