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
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.
