The NBA All-Star break seemed to be just what the Utah Jazz needed.
It was a chance to relax and get healthy, but maybe it was also time for Quin Snyder’s team to refocus and make a strong push these last five weeks of the regular season and into the playoffs.
The Jazz have won three of four games after the All-Star break, Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert are back on the court together, and things seems to be looking up. So what should fans look from the team during this last stretch of the season?
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 give their thoughts on what should we look from the Utah Jazz that will help dictate how far they go in the playoffs.
Also, the guys talk about Mike Conley and his recent statement saying the plan is for the team to start ramping up his minutes for the stretch run.
Lastly, inspired by the HBO new series “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty,” the trio pick which Jazz team would they love to see Hollywood make into a TV series: Late 80s Jazz, NBA Finals-run Jazz of the late 90s, 2006-08 Jazz with Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer, the Gordon Hayward-era Jazz of the 2010s, or today’s Mitchell-Gobert Jazz?
