‘How ‘Bout This Jazz’ podcast: Do the Utah Jazz need to make player changes in order to realistically compete for a title?

Plus, were there any silver linings in the Jazz’s losses to the Warriors and Suns?

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson (00) fouls Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker (1) as the Utah Jazz host the Phoenix Suns at Vivint Arena, Jan. 26, 2022.

This past week was supposed to the “the gauntlet” for the Utah Jazz.

A week that would determine if Quin Snyder’s team could put up a fight and beat their Western Conference foes in the Golden State Warriors and Phoenix Suns. But with several players out, including Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, the week became more of a “just don’t get blown out” expectation for some.

To the Jazz’s credit, the team was, overall, competitive in the games. So was there anything positive from the Jazz’s losing streak that can be seen as a silver lining?

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 losing streak, and the positives that they saw, including how the team’s youngsters fared.

The guys also discuss if the Jazz have flatlined and if it’s time to make one (or several) moves in order to realistically compete for a title.

Lastly, the trio talk their memories of Kobe Bryant, as this week marked two years since his passing.
