14 Team Grade: B+
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.

13 Raja Bell Grade: B-
Michael Brandy, Deseret News

Isn't scoring tons, but he provides leadership, a tough defensive presence and 3-point reliability (40.3 percent).

12 Francisco Elson Grade: C
Kristin Murphy, Deseret News

Production and effectiveness have dropped off, but his feistiness and veteran presence were key factors in bench success for a while.

11 Jeremy Evans Grade: B
Tom Smart, Deseret News

Attitude and athleticism are off the charts, and he has a sky-high shooting percentage (.700) and PER (22.2). Needs bulk, chances, improved shooting range.

10 Kyrylo Fesenko Grade: C-
Deseret News

Improved fitness but still inconsistent. Has had moments but time's limited, partly because of poor free-throw shooting (37.0 percent).

9 Gordon Hayward Grade: C+
Scott G Winterton, Deseret News

Ninth pick showed potential with a three-game stretch in December that included double-digit scoring and aggressive play after a bumpy start.

8 Al Jefferson Grade: B+
Associated Press

Shooting a career low (.483), but the big man has been a great teammate and a steady contributor to the lineup while learning a new system.

7 Andrei Kirilenko Grade: B
Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News

Though his non-salary numbers aren't huge, the team's most versatile player consistently gives a bit of everything.

6 C.J. Miles Grade: B
Scott G Winterton, Deseret News

Continues to come on as of late, providing a more-reliable scoring punch off the bench. Overall game is also on the rise.

5 Paul Millsap Grade: A-
Associated Press

Steadiest player always shows up, punches the clock and turns in a workmanlike performance with solid (and occasional magical) results.

4 Mehmet Okur Grade: A
Associated Press

Deserves copious amounts of credit — and a lofty grade — for fighting and working through a devastating injury and surgery to his Achilles.

3 Ronnie Price Grade: B-
Tom Smart, Deseret News

The team's sparkplug has overcome any offensive deficiencies with his instant energy and hustle play off the bench.

2 Earl Watson Grade: B-
Tom Smart, Deseret News

Had early struggles, but has since keyed the dangerous and crowd-pleasing second unit with proficient playmaking skills.

1 Deron Williams Grade: A
Michael Brandy, Deseret News

Isn't shooting lights out (46.2 percent), but has elevated All-Star game to another level with consistently clutch play — especially in crunch time.
