The Jazz allowed 98.1 points per game last season, tying for 13th in the NBA with Atlanta, Minnesota and New Orleans. Of those four teams, only the Hawks reached the playoffs.
According to Corbin, improved defense is a primary goal this season.
"It has to be a priority for us, the way we finished last year," he said. "Although we won 43 games, we didn’t feel good — where we were defensively. The personnel now will dictate that we can do a few more things. But we have to be better individually and as a team ... so we have a chance to make stops."
