NBA Power Rankings: Utah Jazz Are a Top 10 Team

Maybe Top-5

Utah had a lot of momentum riding into the All-Star break. They were winners of their last 11 game games, because of their stifling defense and great ball movement.

Since the All-Star break, the Jazz has gone 3-2 for an overall record of 33-30 in the West. They currently sit in 10th place in the Western Conference standings however they’re only 4 games behind 3rd place for the playoffs. A big reason for the success is Rudy Gobert being healthy and back into the line-up.

The NBA official website has our Jazz ranked at No. 6 overall based off of their play this season. They also have played the third hardest schedule so far this season so things are sitting in the Jazz’s favor.

ESPN is a little harsher to our Jazz than we’d like and have them sitting at No. 14. Although six of the next nine games are against teams at least 20 games below .500. This means the Jazz should have a few more easy wins under their belt the next two weeks.

Sport’s Illustrated rank the Jazz No. 11 in their version of the power rankings.

CBS Sport’s thinks the same way the NBA does and have the Jazz sitting at No. 6 as well.

The Jazz is a legitimate Top-10 team according to Bleacher Report where the Jazz are ranked at No. 8. They’ve been the league’s fifth-best team by net rating over the last two months. That’s not a fluke.

If you go with the average rating from the previous five cited sources the Jazz overall power ranking is No.9.

Another reason the Jazz are sitting pretty is that of the future Rookie of The Year (ROY) Donovan Mitchell.
