How great are things for the Utah Jazz right now?
Well, last week at this time, they were in ninth place in the Western Conference, just out of the playoff race.
But entering Wednesday? That’s right, via their own stellar play and some unanticipated help, the Jazz had moved to seventh.
Stay at No. 7 and not only do you are you in the playoffs and feeling good about yourself, but you avoid the Golden State Warriors in the first round.
Then again, the second-seeded San Antonio Spurs are no picnic, either.
But that’s talk for another day. Right now, the Jazz just need to focus on getting there. Regardless of matchup, the experience would be invaluable.
