I think Hayward has proven that he is worth the 9th pick...

It really looks like a situation with multiple teams tieing for the last two spors. It is actually highly likely that the Jazz, Mavericks, Suns, and Houston will all be caught in a logjam. How do tiebreakers work then? The Jazz won 2 of 3 from both Houston and Denver. They lost 2 of 3 to Dallas and already lost 2 with 1 more to go against Phoenix. This could get very messy. If the Jazz make it into the "cash cab", then they lost Minnesota's draft choice which could be worth a lot as they plummet downward after losing Kevin Love. Golden State is 4-17 and should lost their last 6 with David Lee gone for the season. If Cleveland loses all of their games and New Jersey and Toronto both lose their last 4, then you have another tiebreaker dilemma to see if the Jazz luck out with a draft choice.

Can the Jazz sweep? That is the question. That is the season.

Hopefully they won't miss the playoffs by fractions of a second on two games with tip-ins just barely after the buzzer sounded, but I'm thinking they are done for this year. It's just too hard to get them to win the games that are easy in the middle of the season that eventually come back and bite them, like walking a batter in the 3rd inning that finally scores an unearned run and you end up losing in the bottom of the ninth by a single run. It's happened to the Jazz more than one year, believe me.

Hayward stepped up. Carroll got some huge rebounds.

The one thing that stood out to me was that EVERY SINGLE play wasn't run straight
to Big Al first, others got involved early for the most part.

Make foul shots, evade overtime.

Great win, though! Great win!

Now all the Jazz need to do is have one less loss than Houston. Or hope Phoenix quits winning. Denver's in, unless they tank.

the best part about all this? Portland is not in the playoffs.....(jab)
