A look at Jazz opponents for the next seven days:
vs. Spurs, Monday, 7 p.m., FSN
Believe it or not, but the Jazz have two more wins against the Spurs this year than they do vs. T-Wolves and Kings.
at Lakers, Wednesday, 8:30 p.m., FSN
Jazz try for first win in Tinsel Town against L.A.'s varsity team since Jack Nicholson Bowl on New Year's Day 2006.
vs. Magic, Thursday, 8:30 p.m., TNT
Magic happened twice for Orlando last season. Squads swapped sweeping series 3 years in row. It's Utah's turn.
vs. Lakers, Saturday, 7 p.m., FSN
The Jazz better not overlook L.A. while they're gearing up for a big rematch with mighty Minnesota on Monday.
The BIG stat
1st: The Jazz top the NBA for assists per game this season with 25.6 dishes an outing. That's just above the 30-year franchise average of 25.2 assists in 2,838 games (pre-2009-10). The Jazz's team record came in 1987-88, when Utah averaged 29.4 apg.
Carlos Boozer: Continued hot streak: 26.7 ppg, 62.7 FG% and 13.7 rpg last week.
