The Jazz got something their fans love: a win against the Lakers in L.A, and that win has many in the L.A. media wondering if things can get any worse.

The Jazz have kicked their offense up a notch. They're eighth in the league for both rebounds and points per game, fifth in the league for assists per game, but a lousy 21st for points allowed per game. Defense, particularly pick-and-roll defense, has been this team's achilles heel since day one of the season.

They've only lost once at home, but nine times on the road. They'll need to figure out a way to continue to take the road magic with them if they are intent on seriously contending.

Thanks for displaying the list on one screen, rather than making readers flip through them one at a time. Very convenient!
