Mike Terry, Deseret News
On track for a 55-win season, but slow starts and surprising home struggles have hindered the team from completely reaching potential. On the other hand, 12 double-digit comebacks have shown this squad is resilient.

Not bad, but I do think that a couple of these are off. How can Miles only have a B-? When was the last time that the Jazz had a bench player produce like this? And don't say Milsap, cause Booz was hurt so much he was basically a starter. Miles has FAR exceeded everyone's expectations and finally seems to be growing up. Also, wouldn't a INC be much more appropriate for Okur?

Miles has some stats that are eye opening. He has one of the worst plus/minus marks in the NBA until he picked it up the last few games.

Not So Fast:

+/- is the most overrated stat ever. Earl Watson has a better +/- stat than DWill. Should we start him instead?

I like most of the grades Genessy has given, I would give Okur an incomplete, I am a big CJ fan but I would give him a B-, mostly because of inconsistency and because I don't think he is nearly playing to his potential.

Al should get an A for defense alone. His offensive numbers will improve.
