Once they reach the 8th seed, then maybe they have turned the corner. I have a feeling it will be soon. Utah has been blowing games and have tougher road games coming up that they will probably lose.

they are having trouble beating bottom feeding teams.it is just a soft part of their schedule.not concerned at all.I have looked at the rest of their schedule and if the current trend of losing to good teams and barely beating bad teams holds true,they end up 41-41.any other year it means no playoffs.not sure about this year since Utah is slumping.

Hard to say they are doing well when they barely beat non playoff teams at home and have a terrible road record. Also, utah is slumping and just giving their playoff spot as a gift to the lakers, which is ridiculous. The lakers have improved though, but I didn't expect Utah to hand them gifts this quickly. I expected the lakers to get in near the end of the season.

Thing is the Fakers have been a little better than us since February. They were 9-4 in February and 3-1 so far in March. We were 8-5 and currently 2-2. So yeah, they have been 2 games better. Not that much, but it still bugs me. I want us to be better than those pricks at any point of the season.

We were without our best player, CP3 though for 6 of the losses. If Lakers didn't have kobe, they would have had a losing record!

Dam, crazy stats. Didn't realize the discrepancies were that big.

I have no clue why we should be negative. We attack the basket alot with cp3, Bledsoe, Barnes, Blake, DJ, crawford.

They sure have. They went from a lottery team to a team that will be swept in the first round(unless refs have something to say about it)!

I don't know what will happen at this point but I have to eat crow and say they are making the playoffs

Well, one thing's for sure. They're not gonna be as bad as they were in the first half again, which is unfortunate. It's just too bad the Jazz were never good enough to retain their playoff spot.

I could care less if they make the playoffs as long as they don't grab the 6th seed(very unlikely that they do). If they grab the 7th or 8th seed they give the Spurs or Thunder some trouble or get swept and humiliated.

Win win situation.

^ i dont care if they get the 6th seed. we could face them, and wipe them out in 5 or less games in humiliating fashion.

I would rather they get the 8th seed. Everyone is jumping on their bandwagon, but honestly who have they beaten recently that was good? And they've struggled against non playoff teams at home multiple times. They're definitely improved without question but their record against west playoff teams is a joke.
