Steve Luhm: In this lockout, a younger Utah Jazz team may prevail

NBA » After 1999 work stoppage, an older Utah was out of gas by postseason

< Previous Page

Since a loss at Sacramento following the All-Star break, the Jazz have won 11 of their 15 games.

They have beaten Miami, Oklahoma City and the Lakers in Los Angeles.

They have won six straight overall and seven in a row at EnergySolutions Arena, where Denver had as much of a chance as Newt Gingrich during Utah’s 121-102 victory on Friday night.

The Jazz enter Sunday’s game at Atlanta tied for seventh place in the West. But they are closer to fourth than to ninth.

Suddenly, Utah appears to be just the kind of young, deep team that can take advantage of the abbreviated 66-game schedule and its potential impact on teams less capable of coping with the grind.

It happened once.

It might be happening again.
