What They Are Saying
Jazz Allowing Only 100.4 Points Per 100 Possessions
“Utah has won its past five games, matching the Lakers for the league’s longest active winning streak. Jordan Clarkson, an early Sixth Man of the Year contender, has averaged 20.8 points with a 64.7 true shooting percentage during the streak. The Jazz are allowing only 100.4 points per 100 possessions during the roll, which includes road wins over the Bucks and Nuggets.” — Tim MacMahon, ESPN
Mike Conley for MVP
“Heading into Sunday’s game, Mike Conley was considered the second most valuable player in the league so far this year. Conley is averaging 16.8 points and 6.0 assists this season. He’s shooting 42.2% from 3 on nearly seven attempts per game and the Jazz have been 10 points better per 100 possessions when he’s on the court. Anyone who watched the battle of the early-season MVPs on Sunday (vs the Nuggets) saw just how valuable Conley was to the Jazz.
“While Conley’s offensive contributions are easy to see, advanced stats say that Conley’s defense has actually been more valuable. FiveThirtyEight rates him as the seventh-best defender (Utah’s Rudy Gobert is No. 1) so far this season, with his play on Atlanta star Trae Young on Friday obviously helping with those metrics. His offensive rating is just shy of top-20 production. Add it together and Conley has been one of the most valuable players in the league.” – Ryan Miller, KSL.com
One of the Elite Teams
“After an inconsistent start to the year, the Jazz have evolved into one of the NBA’s elite teams. In addition to owning the Western Conference’s second-best record, the Jazz find themselves ranked in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive rating.
“The team ranks ninth in offensive rating scoring 111.7 points per 100 possessions. The Jazz have been better on the defensive end of the floor where they allow just 106.5 points per 100 possessions, good for the seventh-best in the league. Over the last five games, those numbers have skyrocketed.” – Ben Anderson, KSL.com
