The Jazz may have finished with a loss before the All-Star Break but if you look at the bigger picture, Utah finished 18–5 in its last 23 games to get back into the thick of the Western Conference playoff picture for the stretch run.
Utah trails Golden State, Denver, Oklahoma City, Portland, and Houston but it isn’t far behind those last two teams. San Antonio and Sacramento are right on Utah’s heels, too.
Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert could headline an All-Non All Star Team. Both are terrific and are in the middle of terrific seasons, in which they have stayed healthy just about throughout. Joe Ingles, Jae Crowder, Derrick Favors and Ricky Rubio all fit the stereotype of the under appreciated, gritty NBA role player.
Utah looked like the best team outside of Golden State and Houston in the Western Conference last season and it backed it up in the playoffs. The Jazz has kind of gotten lost in the chatter this season but I don’t see any reason it can’t go all the way to the conference finals, aside from home court advantage, depending on when it meets Golden State.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder has taken over that role as the up-and-comer that could challenge all of the other teams that aren’t Golden State in the West. Some believe it could even give Golden State a run.
I don’t think OKC has the shooters to truly challenge Golden State, especially when the Warriors can just throw Kevin Durant on Paul George and know they will get at least a wash out of that one-on-one matchup. Golden State has way more depth when you cancel out George and Durant.
Especially because the Thunder’s front court looked gassed before the break hit. Steven Adams is playing huge minutes, even with the addition of Nerlens Noel and his productivity has suffered imperceptibly because of it.
Markieff Morris joins the fray for the final third of the regular season and while he can’t replace Adams, he will bring a toughness to the Thunder that takes some of the onus off of Adams. Morris is expected to make his Thunder debut in this game.
