Are the Jazz a top ten team?

I group teams into categories three of them are; Super Teams, A ton of talent but don't play like a Super Team, and Very Good teams

The Super teams:


A ton of talent but don't play like a super team:

Very good teams

I wanted to see if the Jazz fell in there so I figured out.

Utah’s record vs “Super teams, Very Good teams, and ton of talent but don’t play like a super team”
Big wins are separated from the rest

UTA vs MIA W 99-98

UTA vs OKC W 97-90

UTA vs OKC L 87-101
UTA @ OKC L 85-111
UTA @ BOS L 82-94

UTA @ LAL W 103-99

UTA vs LAL W 96-87
UTA vs LAL L 87-90 (OT)
UTA @ LAL L 71-96
UTA @ SAS L 104-114

UTA @ SAS L 89-104
UTA vs DEN W 121-102
UTA @ DEN W 106-96
UTA @ DEN L 100-117
UTA vs LAC W 108-79
UTA vs LAC L 105-107
UTA @ LAC L 96-105
UTA @ NJN W 105-84
UTA vs NJN W 107-94
UTA @ NYK L 88-99

UTA @ MEM W 98-88

UTA @ MEM L 98-103
UTA vs MEM W 94-85
UTA @ IND L 99-104

Interesting stats:
  • The Jazz played 26 games and won 12 of them (46 %)
  • They Played 12 of those at home and won 8 of them (66.67%)
  • They Played 14 on the road and only won 4 (28.5%) -Not bad though considering these are the best 10 teams
  • Their record against the finalists(OKC and MIAMI) was 2-2 with 2 on the road
  • They won the Memphis, Miami, Denver, and Brooklyn series and tied the Lakers series
  • They lost the Pacers, Thunder, Spurs, Celtics, and Knicks series
  • They lost 50% of these games by less than ten points.  That means half of their losses could have gone either way too, they could have very well have won 73% of their games vs these Big Boys

  1. Hi Riley,

    Good job with this site.

    I have a computer question for you concerning utahjazz 360. When I try to post a blog on the site all that it publishes is the title, and not the body of the blog. I have been posting on utahjazz 360 for several years, and only recently do i have this problem. After I write the blog, and scroll down and click "publish" and the screen changes, only the title of the blog, and not the blog it's self appears. If you have any idea why this might be occuring, please email me at
