30 games and the Utah Jazz are right back where they started — .500. Not only did they lose to Oklahoma City last week, they also dropped games to the Hornets and Rockets, only managing to beat the Wizards. Which would be a bigger deal if there were any teams that COULDN'T beat the Wizards. (OK, there's the Bobcats, but that's beside the point.) Thankfully they have a short week before the All-Star break — just San Antonio and Minnesota — so they can get some much-needed rest and get the second half started.. —Russ Bengtson
