Salt City Hoops Ep. 67: The Jazz are Good! Defense, Rudy Gobert, Guest Nate Duncan, & More

Hey, the Jazz are good now! After going 7-4 in their last 11 games, Ben Dowsett and Andy Larsen break down what’s led to the improvement. Is it only Rudy Gobert, or is there something else going on with the Jazz defensively? Why has the offense been as good as it’s been without Alec Burks and Enes Kanter? And speaking of Kanter, what happens to him now with Rudy Gobert’s improvement? We talk about all of it. Then, during the show, we play some Dennis Lindsey quotes and try to interpret them. We break down the wide-open MVP race, with each of our top 5 lists thus far. Nate Duncan joins us on the program, telling us his impressions of the Jazz’s improved play, some of the options with Enes Kanter’s contract, and some undervalued players throughout the league. As always, we go Around the NBA, talking Pistons, trades, LOLakers (featuring Yakety Sax!) and more. There’s so much good stuff on this edition of the Salt City Hoops Show!Author informationAndy LarsenAndy Larsen is the Managing Editor of Salt City Hoops, the ESPN TrueHoop affiliate for the Utah Jazz.
