    So at what point should Jazz fans get concerned about this team?

    This will be like the 8th time this season I have gotten excited about this team and expected them to turn the corner, and then was again disappointed. When Rubio is on it's beautiful to watch, unfortunately he is too inconsistent to rely on every night. Mitchell I am not worried about, we shouldn't expect a 2nd year player to carry the team. Ingles is broken this year, I wonder if he still thinks he is the best shooter in the league? Crowder is quickly becoming my favorite Jazz player, and I still love Gobert. Exum seems to be coming around. Just a few bright spots in an otherwise very disappointing season.

    Both Rubio and Mitchell shot percentages increase inside the three point line. What worked well last year has the Jazz at number 11 in the West this year, so it might not be working this year.

    Both of these guards deliver assists so well and when they go to the basket they are often double teamed leaving someone more open, and whoever that is they shoot a better percentage and should be taking the shot.

    Seems Dante has made huge strides and it is so entertaining to watch whoever guards him fail when he goes to the hole. Dante is a really enjoyable athlete to watch.

    Time to trade Rubio and sit Mitchell.
    ... Or hey, having a losing season because the team continues to have its worst shooters take the most shots us an option as well.

    Really over estimated the Jazz this year.
    Oh well, still enjoy watching them.
    Go Jazz

    The Jazz are becoming unwatchable because of the play of their guards. Teams are leaving them open for good reason. They'll never get above .500 at this rate, regardless of the schedule.

    We all love Donovan Mitchell, but he's the worst 3-point shooter in the league at his position (#47 out of 47) and every time he jacks one up, we know another L is on the way. Plus, he shoots more 3-pointers than anyone else.

    Mitchell and Rubio are the two worst shooters on the team, but they take over 1/3 of the shots every game (29.6 shots out of 84.5 total for the team). Gobert gets 8.7 shots/game. The Jazz guards should focus on assists, not shot attempts.
