The Utah Jazz were the #4 best offense in the regular season, in terms of Points per Game. They were the #6 offense in terms of Offensive Rating. And as a team, they had a collective 1.19 points per shot value. Things have changed in the playoffs against a motivated and focused San Antonio Spurs defense. In the playoffs it's gone down all the way to 1.05 points per shot. That's a big drop off. Let's look at the players, and their performance so far in the playoffs:
