Having maneuvered through the formidable start to the 2014 schedule, Real Salt Lake returns home on the heels of its 2-2 draw at Philadelphia Saturday as the lone undefeated team in Major League Soccer, with a 2-0-4 record. It’s not the best start in franchise history as RSL started 5-1-0 in 2011 and 2012, but the club had never gone unbeaten through the first six weeks of an MLS season. “I think we are going to get better and that is what really is exciting,...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The veteran guard hit 178 of them last year in Utah, setting the franchise record for triples in a single season. Saturday night, Foye took his old team down memory lane. The Nuggets sharpshooter hit three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with a game-high 26 points, as he helped down the Jazz 101-94 in Denver. The Jazz (24-56) had led most of the way, but Foye played spoiler.

Here it is: The Jazz’s young core players can be good, not great. There’s not a fledgling superstar among them. That’s a big deal because, jumping two steps ahead, for the Jazz to become an authentic contender, they must have a star.

Even LeBron James thinks so. James scored 37 points against Memphis last week but, after another Miami loss, he seemed to endorse Durant. “I would say he’s the most consistent basketball player as far as the MVP this year,” James said. “He’s put up some great numbers.” Indeed. Durant averages 31.9 points a game, heading into the final three games of the regular season.
