With the Jazz winning their last three out of four, are the Jazz back to their best?

That’s one of the questions Jazz beat writers Eric Walden and Andy Larsen tackle on this week’s version of the Weekly Run podcast.

But of course, there’s more: since it’s our first podcast following the Kyle Korver trade, we break down why the Jazz did the deal, why Dennis Lindsey made the move now instead of at the deadline, and what Korver can bring to the Jazz, beyond the obvious.

Finally, have you seen the Western Conference standings recently? There are 14 teams within five games of each other. We talk about the compressed West and what it means for the Jazz.

Oh, and relying on Eric’s musical roots, we get into some Queen theming on the podcast. I still don’t really know why.
