It’s been the roughest week this season for the Utah Jazz.

COVID finally hit the team and coaching staff. A few signings to patch up the team had to be made. Rudy Gobert is still out, thus hurting the team’s defense overall.

The Jazz have lost four games in a row.

So is it time to just acknowledge that the Jazz’s only realistic shot at winning a title is to try and outscore the opponent and hope Gobert’s defense is enough?

On the latest episode of The Tribune’s “How ‘Bout This Jazz” podcast, host/moderator Xoel Cardenas and Tribune Jazz beat reporters Andy Larsen and Eric Walden break down four-game slide and the lackluster Jazz defense.

Also, the guys talk about if it’s time to hold Quin Snyder more accountable for the poor team defense.

Lastly, inspired by Donovan Mitchell’s ankle-breaking/embarrassing opponents’ moves, Xoel, Eric and Andy tell you their most embarrassing moments playing sports.
