After some early struggles and injuries to Dante Exum and Rudy Gobert, we wondered if it was time to start looking toward the NBA draft in June. The Jazz suddenly have won four of their last five games. Can Utah sustain the success it has found or is reality about to hit hard?
On this episode of the Weekly Run, the Tribune’s Utah Jazz podcast, we break it down.
At 7:50 • The Jazz have had a couple of 30-plus assist performances during this stretch. What’s behind the improved ball movement? And has Ricky Rubio finally settled into a groove in his new home?
At 12:00 • Tony takes credit for Jonas Jerebko’s performances and explains what the forward is doing well.
At 17:10 • Now for the big question: Where is Rudy Gobert in his rehab process? And what will it mean for rejuvenated Derrick Favors once the All-NBA center returns?
At 25:30 • We take a quick look around the league, discussing Blake Griffin’s injury, David Fizdale’s firing in Memphis, Kane Fitzgerald and finding Anthony Davis in Salt Lake City.
