Playing for pride isn't something that goes over very well in the pro ranks—you play to win, and ideally win championships—but if this incarnation of the Utah Jazz can finish above .500, that says a lot for the team and head coach Tyrone Corbin. The Jazz went .500 last week, keeping their collective heads one game above water with five games left. It's Dallas, Portland twice, Orlando and Phoenix—a daunting task, but then again in the past two weeks they've split a pair with the Spurs. Never count these guys out. —Russ Bengtson
