Yes, the Jazz only have 13 wins. But seeing that they've only played 22 games thus far (some teams have played as many as 25), they're still four games on the right side of the .500 mark. And while they just held the line last week, they beat the one team they had to — the division rival Blazers. This could easily be another .500 week, as the beatable Knicks and Grizzlies bracket road games against the Thunder and the Pacers. If they can ever get more out of Devin Harris (currently averaging 8.9 ppg and 4.5 apg), that would help.—Russ Bengtson
