The Jazz are going through their time of reckoning currently with 2 of their defensive leaders/starters out in Exum and Gobert. If the Jazz can manage to win half of their games during this Gobertless stretch, then you all as well as the rest of the world are going to see a dangerous and extremely hungry Jazz team this playoffs.
So there you have your current assignment Jazz team, win at least half your games for the 20 or so remaining games that Rudy will be out, then his return shall help reinforce this franchise back to its glory of being able to win playoff games for the first time in over 5 years!
The overtime win against the Pacers over the weekend was one of the most exciting wins of the season thus far! Favors was quite the beast with his career high in points:

Have a great week everyone, the Jazz games this week are:
Tuesday @ Kings (8 PM)
Wednesday vs. Knicks (7 PM)
Friday vs. Thunder (7 PM)
Sunday @ Thunder (5 PM)
I would say the safe bet for one of the subjects of next week's Monday downbeat will involve the recent rivalry, or at the least chippy games, between the Thunder and the Jazz.
Random tidbit before I conclude today regarding the East and the West this year...
14th best team in the East (5.5 games back) is closer to being top of their conference than the 3rd best team in the West (9 games back)— Justin (JuMu) (@JuMuJazz) December 7, 2015
12th best team in the East (4 games back) is closer to being top of their conference than the 2nd best team in the West (4.5 games back)— Justin (JuMu) (@JuMuJazz) December 7, 2015
Moral of the story is, if there's an undefeated team in your conf 1/4 of the way thru the season, you're not close to being top of your conf— Justin (JuMu) (@JuMuJazz) December 7, 2015
