The Utah Jazz have been one of the hottest teams in the league despite a rough start to the season, plagued by injuries and the blunt departure of star forward Gordon Hayward in the offseason. Oddly enough, the team found itself in 10th place in the Western Conference standing and rallied to win 15 of the next 17 games to end up in… 10th place, according to Hardwood Paroxysm, who celebrated last night’s win over the Orlando Magic with this sarcastic stat. The West is as competitive as ever, and even fringe teams like the Jazz and the L.A. Clippers are still within striking distance to crack into the postseason, regardless of the hopelessness this stat provides the Utah faithful.
