i check the conference/division standings about 4 or 5 times a week. and since 2010 has arrived the jazz just keep creeping up on the nuggs. i keep telling myself that its a fluke and the wheels will come off the jazz anytime now. but that still hasnt happened. the jazz ended 2009 with a record of 18-14 (.562 winning %). in 2010 they have gone 18-5 (.782 winning %).
their wins in 2010 include:
2 against dallas (1 home, 1 away)
3(!) against portland (1 at home, 2 on the road, more on this later)
they also have single wins over nuggs, cavs, suns and @ san an.
a little more on the portland record above. last night the jazz came back from being down 25+ in the rose garden to beat the blazers. boozer put up a lasik line (20/20) in the win. i thought for sure the jazz would lose last night and once again, i thought wrong.
that should-have-never-happened win now puts the jazz just a half game behind the nuggets in the standings and gives them 3rd in the west. tonight the jazz play atlanta at home. the birds haven’t left salt lake city with a win since 1993. 17 fucking years.
so nuggs fans, there are pretty good odds that we will wake up tomorrow with the nuggets tied for second in the west with the jazz, and tied for first in the division with the jazz.
ill probably put an ad up on craigslist, but i thought i would start here first. do any of you happen to know a good witch doctor that could place an especially vile hex on the utah jazz? even a little voodoo doll of deron williams would probably do the trick. their winning is getting out of hand and I feel the black arts are the only place left for me to turn. thanks in advance for any help you give me.
