The Jazz lost their last three games by total of 17 points. The Oklahoma City Thunder and Phoenix Suns each won by three points, while the Houston Rockets won by more than three points.
Obviously, there is much room to grow. The Jazz have been deficient in a number of areas so far, but with youth comes opportunities to change. Utah may be three games into this year's NBA season, but there are still 79 games remaining, beginning with tonight's game against the Brooklyn Nets.
