The Utah Jazz are currently sitting at a surprising 6-4, seventh in winning percentage in the Western Conference.

The team started off slowly, highlighted by two lopsided losses at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets, but Utah put together a nice five-game win streak and is 5-1 at home.

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.

How have the players done individually?

Listed are the grades for all major contributors for the Jazz, along with a one-word tag line to describe their season thus far.
