The Utah Jazz might be better than we thought

Spacing, passing and playmaking in abundance!

On this episode of the SLC Punks podcast we discc the Jazz after one preseason game. Is it time to overreact to the Jazz playing an NBL team. Maybe it is and MAYBE IT IS. Besides being on track for the first undefeated NBA season, what else did we learn?

The Jazz played with more space than we’ve seen in years with legitimate shooters surrounded by strong center play. It was fun! But will the Jazz taper off in other areas?

We also saw some surprising play from Jazz newcomers Bojan Bogdanovic and Ed Davis. We also saw an improved Royce O’neale and a surprising Miye Oni. How much more of this can we expect.

We then discuss the differences between this season’s team and last season. What have the Jazz improved on and what will they miss from last season. How much will they miss Derrick Favors and how will Ed Davis and Bojan Bogdanovic fill the void?
