    I do believe the biggest ace that the Jazz now have is the coaching staff, which is improving with the team and as time progresses the team will become less reliable on anyone player due to coaching. That brings my thoughts to how dependent this team is currently, on Gordon Hayward. A season ending injury with Hayward and this team finishes in the 35 win area at best. Any amount of significant playing time lost due to injuries to Favors or Gobert with Hayward gone and they could be looking at high 20’s to low 30’s in wins. Injuries truly are the make or break a team’s season. Just look at the Thunder with Durant gone, they don’t even make the playoffs. The championship future for the Jazz could be upon Exum’s shoulders and his current injury has really set a lot of things back over the next few years for the Jazz.
    The high side for wins this year, agree with Ben that they could hit the 50’s if everyone stays healthy and with typical improvement for everyone on the team.
