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!

    Caught some of your show last night guys, and enjoyed it.

    In my opinion, Kanter should be traded or be the fourth big. Favors and Gobert is such a devastating defensive combo that I am willing to sacrifice some spacing in order to keep them on the floor. Also, booker has been really really good. Finally, (and admittedly sarcastically) I am incredibly biased against the school that Enes Kanter chose to attend. I believe its the absolute home of satan and his minions and as such we should rid ourselves of any association of it.
