The 2019 season for the Utah Jazz is going to be an exciting one. All the pieces are there to make a big run. The Jazz filled with talented players that fill all the necessary roles to go far in the modern day. But because the Jazz don’t have one of the top 5 players in the league, the comparison to the 2004 Pistons is one worth looking into.

On this episode of the SLC Punks Podcast we discuss Mychal Lowman’s piece comparing this year’s Utah Jazz to the 2004 Detroit Pistons team who won it all. Are they close? The answer might surprise you.

We also discuss other things like spacing and Rudy Gobert and what the Jazz have that can take them to the next level.
