Where the "Experts" Place the Utah Jazz in 13'-14'


Everybody always has their expectations of where teams will finish, but with the Jazz no one really knows at all.  Here are what other sites and experts are saying about the Jazz this year:  (Remember Vegas has Jazz at 25.5 wins)

** If you click on any of the blogs it will take you to the Utah Jazz preview from that site.

Ball Don’t Lie, a Yahoo sports blog: 20-62

Bleacher Report: 30-52

ESPN Schoene Projection by Kevin Pelton: 34-48

Pro Basketball Talk: 23-59

Total Sports Live: 39-43

Pro Sports Daily: 18-64

Rant Sports: 22-60

Sports Grid: 25-57

Sonics Rising: 23-59

Sport.net: 30-52

Fansided: 21-61

As you can see people all across the net have the Jazz ranging from 18 to 39 wins this season and everyone of them could be right.  The only thing these blogs have in common is they all have the Jazz missing the playoffs.  I find it hard to believe the Jazz won’t win more than 20 games though because they play 41 at home in the high altitude Salt Lake valley.

Therefore I will repeat what I said on July 11th on where the Jazz will finish: Worst case 26-56; best case 45-37

My prediction for the Utah Jazz season this year: 33-49; good for 12th in the West ahead of Phoenix, Sacramento and the Lakers.

    Hope the team will be able to stop the vicious circle of defeats… In SLC the team will win several games, and on the road they’ll win one at least (against the Sixers). :)
