How many games will the Utah Jazz win?

A highly unbiased and scientific look at the Utah Jazz season schedule The Utah Jazz schedule is out and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s great to talk about actual upcoming matchups and focus on the future for the Jazz. What I’m going to do now is a scientific study of the schedule. The way my formula works is I will look at the games, think about it, then decide whether they will win or lose them. If you do not understand the formula, that’s okay, it took me a long time to come up with it. I even have a degree. Alright, let’s go! pic.twitter.com/Z09yv4Q0LN— Utah Jazz PR...

2017-2018 Utah Jazz Schedule: Week by Week Breakdown

2017-2018 Utah Jazz Schedule: Week by Week Breakdown

Breaking down Utah’s schedule week by week. The NBA has released the 2017-2018 NBA schedule, and, in an attempt to structure the NBA schedule in a better way, the NBA has separated the schedule into 26 weeks. Now instead of saying, “In November ... ,” the NBA is hoping fans will refer to how teams are faring in week 13. If anything this feels like a shot across the bow of the NFL. But for us it makes it easier to break down the schedule. I’ll be breaking each week down based on # of +.500 matchups, if there is a back to back, road vs home games, and the matchup of the week.

The Return: Gordon Hayward returns to Utah on March 28th

The Butler product won’t be back in Utah until the end of the season. Utah Jazz fans will have a long time to stew before Gordon Hayward makes his return to Utah. Almost a full year after Hayward’s last game in Utah, he will make his return on March 28th, 2018. The game will be televised on ESPN.
