The Utah Jazz are currently sitting at a surprising 6-4, seventh in winning percentage in the Western Conference.
The recent 90-87 overtime loss against the Lakers hurt, particular since the Jazz had a chance to win it at the end; but it did prove Utah can compete against a top team in the West. Further, it showed that they have more grit than many expected of such a young squad.
Overall the team is performing above expectations. They have a chance to build on their recent successes as they make their way through a January schedule that includes seven of nine game in Salt Lake City.
