The Jazz have played 20 regular season games, which means sometime around 8 p.m. on Friday they will be one-quarter of the way through the 82-game season. When asked to evaluate the team's performance to this point, Paul Millsap was clear in his belief that the Jazz, so far, with a 10-10 record, have not been good enough.
"Definitely underachieved," he said. "We're a much better team than we put off, I guess. A couple games we know we should have won, we just didn't pull it off. Whatever the case may be and we should be a lot better."
Asked what specifically needs to improve, Millsap said, "I'm not sure. We still got some young guys, still got some new guys still trying to get in the flow, get the rhythm down. Who knows? But you always want to do better than what you are, and 10-10 I think we're underachieving right now."
