‘How ‘Bout This Jazz’ podcast: Are the Utah Jazz’s recent struggles a big deal or not?

Plus, is it time for Jordan Clarkson to take fewer shots?

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell (45) awaits the referees decision, after being involved in a bench-clearing brawl in the 4th quarter in NBA action between the Utah Jazz and the Indiana Pacers at Vivint Arena, on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021.

This past week wasn’t the best of weeks for the Utah Jazz, to say the least.

Quin Snyder’s team lost three of four games, which included two losses in the state of Florida and a poor performance against the Indiana Pacers at Vivint Arena.

Did any of the recent losses expose a major flaw with the Jazz? Or is this just another case of the early season struggles any NBA team can go through?

In the latest episode of the Tribune’s “How ‘Bout This Jazz” podcast, host/moderator Xoel Cardenas and Jazz beat reporters Andy Larsen and Eric Walden break down the most recent games, what stood out to them about the three recent Jazz losses and if there’s anything that they feel is worrisome on the court.

The guys discuss whether the Jazz ranking 25th in the league in 3-point field-goal percentage is something fans should keep tabs on. In addition, the trio talks Jordan Clarkson and when do the negatives of overshooting begin to cost the team wins. Andy also breaks down the new partnership the Tribune has formed with Salt City Hoops to bring Jazz fans more coverage of the team they love.

As always, the guys give a preview of the upcoming Jazz schedule.

Lastly, inspired by Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen’s recent book publicity tour and the shots he’s taking at former teammate Michael Jordan, Andy, Eric and Xoel tell you what would be the title of their book or what life experience would they dedicate a chapter to.
