    If we are playing both Denver and Clippers 3 more games each, I have no doubt.
    Unfortunately, we have to rely on other teams beating them

    This is like a brand new team.

    I dont recall any team making this drastic of a change in season as far as playstyle+personnel.

    I really don't know what to expect but I'm hella optimistic.

    Still need to tighten up a little defensively but we are going to be a problem for somebody come playoff time.

    Getting the 2 seed is the best we can hope for...not "at minimum. We aren't catching up 8 games in the loss column to the Lakers by season end.

    Having said that, I'm super intrigued by the potential of the team...and by what the NBA's Western conference coaching staffs will come up with adjustment wise in a 5 and 7 game series. The Zone seemed to give us a bit of trouble tonight.

    Zone gives us even more trouble when we don't shoot 40% on 20 made 3's.

    dont be so sure. n im not worried bout the zone one bit. u noticed that only even had a chance when harden was out the game...n also 2nd half after mda found the right combo of guys when russ is on the court. it killed that

    If we have the Jazz playing zone in the playoffs, we have already won.
