Welp, maybe we were wrong about Ty Corbin. The Jazz didn't exactly win pretty last week, but 4-0 is 4-0. Not only did they notch their first road win (at Golden State), but they righted their record from 1-3 to 5-3 — ah, the beginning of the season. Their point differential is still in the red, and only two players are averaging double-digit points (Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap), but what the hell — enjoy it while it lasts, Jazz fans. —Russ Bengtson
