The Jazz at present are good enough to beat marginal teams, good enough to beat even good teams at home. But their 5-16 road record is the near opposite of their 16-6 home mark.
Against Minnesota, the Jazz played well at times, terrible at others. Ultimately, one big positive — strong defense — helped them take a tight game.
Yeah, there was no major trade whirlwind or personnel drama on Thursday for the Jazz, no new help from the outside in.
They are left, then, only with the inside in, with baby steps to take, with small bits of growth to gain, with playing the guys capable of improvement.
But, hey, now. It’s not as though they’re wrestling boas in Brazil’s backwater. This is something they can do, if they will.
