The feel-good Utah Jazz stories can stop now. With two more losses heading into the All-Star break, they're two games below .500, and in the basement of the Northwest Division. And the fact that those two losses came by a combined six points is no real consolation. With the condensed season there's no time to lick their wounds, either — the post-break week sees four games, including a back-to-back set against the Heat and the Mavericks. Good luck with that, fellas. —Russ Bengtson
