The Utah Jazz have played arguably the most difficult schedule of the first half of the season.
Of all NBA teams, the Jazz spent more time on the road than all other 29 NBA teams. The Jazz were rewarded for playing the most road-heavy schedule by following up their latest lengthy trip with a home game to the Miami Heat, a game the Jazz won, 104-97.
Home has treated the Jazz well this season. They are 14-4 at home and 9-15 on the road. This generally bodes well for Utah. The Jazz have seven of their next nine games at home. By March 1, the Jazz will have played at home 11 times compared to five on the road.
With the Jazz victory over Washington on Wednesday night, and with their very home-heavy schedule, Deseret News Sports is asking its staff and readers where the Jazz will be by March 1, 2013.
