Welcome to another week of Utah Jazz basketball, will the Jazz be able to finish this season strong?

With the Rockets and Mavericks losing yesterday the Jazz make an  easy catapult back up to 7th place in the Western standings!

With the Jazz honoring Kirilenko tonight, he is getting some media attention for the first time in a while. For all you Kirilenko die-hards, enjoy the interview of the polarizing Jazz star.

Utah Jazz fan and blogger "Jazzbasketball" cranked out a good read on post-2000s Jazz great Andrei Kirilenko!

A link here: https://jazzbasketball.wordpress.com/2016/03/28/extreme-ways-andrei-kirilenkos-utah-jazz-legacy/

And a small excerpt here (and solid highlight reel below):

How can you summarize the historical legacy of a player with a skillset that probably came along 6 years too late (or 6 years too early) and yet is the only Jazz player to play with Stockton&Malone, with Dwill&Boozer, and with Gordon Hayward?

The Jazz play 4 games in the next 7 days:

Tonight at home vs. the Lakers at 7 PM

Wednesday at home vs. the Warriors at 7 PM

Friday at home vs. the Timberwolves at 7 PM

Sunday on the road vs. the Suns at 4 PM

Will the Jazz continue with their playoff push momentum and be able to win 3 out of 4 this week?

Salt Lake Tribune Reporter Aaron Falk found that website FiveThirtyEight shows that we are favored to win every game but the Golden State game this week.

Let's hope the Jazz win the games they are supposed to win and head into April with no brakes on the #PlayoffPush train!
