Utah Jazz Schedule: A look at the third week of December 2012, predictions and user poll

USA TODAY Sports

The Jazz went 2-2 last week, which is what I predicted. So, yay me. I seem to know my team very well as I'm on a very accurate streak. Let's take a look at this week:

December Week 3:

This week looks rough, it's our East coast trip before Christmas. Brooklyn will be the Derrick Favors 'revenge' game back against the team that drafted him; and also probably the whole Deron Williams "Look at me now in a big market" revenge game as well. I can't imagine what's going to happen. The next night the Jazz are playing against the Pacers in the second night of a back to back. Two nights of rest have us in Florida for the last two games of this stretch: Saturday night in Miami, then Sunday in Orlando. It's two sets of back to backs, and something we should be capable of handling. I really hope the Jazz show up here, and not be on an early vacation. That said, I think the Jazz go 1-3 on this trip.

The Orlando game may be harder than the Indy game because Danny Granger and Roy Hibbert may both be out. Orlando is without Al Harrington and Hedo Turkoglu; however our game against them is the fourth game in six nights. And the second game that's the second game in a back to back set. Spencer and Jimbo mentioned that this is a schedule loss on their podcast; and they may very well be right about that.

It's not out of the question to see the Jazz go 0-4 on this road trip. But if that happens it's not the worst thing in the world. The worst thing in the world would be giving Alec Burks playing time -- he and his confidence must be broken first. All great teams do that with their wings, because confidence is the worst thing in the world. Right Kobe Bryant?
