Salt City Hoops Ep. 59: Utah Jazz Season Preview – Salt City Hoops Show on ESPN700

On the inaugural episode of the Salt City Hoops Show on ESPN700, hosts Ben Dowsett and Andy Larsen discuss some over-unders from Jazzland. Will Favors score more than 14 points per game? Will Hayward get 5 assists in each game? Will Exum play more than 27 minutes per game? All of the above, and more, are discussed.

Then, we talk with Dan Clayton, SCH writer, about the Jazz’s no vote on lottery reform. Why did the Jazz vote against the proposed changes?

We next talk with Jody Genessy, Jazz beat writer for the Deseret News. He gives us his season predictions, why and how this year’s preseason has been so different than last season’s, his opinion on Dahntay Jones and Brock Motum, and finally, his predicted win total for the Jazz next season.

Finally, Ben and Andy give their season win total projections. Will the Jazz beat 25 wins next season? 30? More? We reveal the exact prediction, and the math behind how we come up with the Jazz’s win totals.

All that, plus a ticket giveaway, and Jazz/Suns preview on this week’s episode of the Salt City Hoops Show!

Quick unfortunate note: The first 2 minutes of Jody Genessy’s interview have been cut off from the recording. We’re sorry about that. We owe you two more minutes of Jody at some point this season.Author informationAndy LarsenAndy Larsen is the Managing Editor of Salt City Hoops, the ESPN TrueHoop affiliate for the Utah Jazz.
