I am all for being positive, but this article downright jinxes us. It is way
too early to start talking playoffs when we have two months of brutal road games
ahead. If we still have a winning record at the end of March, then we can talk.
@pate123,Yeah, the last thing we need to do is jinx ourselves. Take
it one game at a time and we'll think about it when we get there.
Well, the schedule has really given the Jazz the best opportunity possible to
get prepared for what is ahead and that is a brutal road schedule. Even good
teams lose alot of games on the road.Injuries will be the X factor
to whether the Jazz get in the playoffs or not.Realistically they
are barely in the playoff picture even with all these home games. Is it likely
that they are going to go on the road and maintain this pace of winning? Not
likely at all.I sure hope they surprise us all but I think it is pie
in the sky to believe that we are going to maintain this winning pace with all
those road games.I don't think it is reasonable to expect that. I
will still watch regardless as long as they continue to play hard and
compete...that is entertaining.With this many new players I think
winning that many games on the road is a bit of an over reach. Injuries could
dramatically affect the outcome of the standings though. We are as deep as any
team with our bench but other teams dramatically rely on single players for
success so if a big name goes down it could dramatically affect the standings.
Take it one game at a time guys; there is no reason too put the pressure of the
playoffs in your minds this early in to it. Continue to grow (chemistry)as a
team,get better concentration at the free throw line; because I'm afraid this
month is going too be brutal on you and I hope the losses don't pile up beyond
your beliefs; it's going to be tough. Good luck team, stay strong!
