Weekly Run podcast: Jazz 8-1 in their last 9, thanks to boosts from three players in particular

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Detroit Pistons guard Tim Frazier (12) gets pushed by Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles (2) as the Utah Jazz host the Detroit Pistons in their NBA basketball game at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City on Monday, Dec. 30, 2019.

The Jazz are on a roll. Sure, it’s been against mostly sub-.500 teams, but winning eight of their last nine games is nothing to scoff at, either. How real is this trend, and how can they make sure it continues when the schedule does turn — albeit not for a couple more weeks?

Hosts Andy Larsen and Eric Walden talk about three players that have been at the forefront of the good play: Jordan Clarkson, Donovan Mitchell, and Joe Ingles. Why have they helped so much so recently?

Here’s the breakdown of topics:

0:50: How real is this winning stretch, anyway?

10:15: What has Jordan Clarkson brought since the Jazz acquired him?

15:30: How and why has Donovan Mitchell raised his game in recent weeks?

23:10: Joe Ingles’ superb month of December

26:35: Ed Davis, and whether or not he’s going to be on the Jazz long-term
