Utah had another postseason meltdown in 2022, even though the Dallas Mavericks were without Luka Doncic for the first three games of its first-round series. Doncic has such a significant role in that offense, with most clean looks coming from him getting a shot in isolation or passing out of a double team. There is no excuse for the Jazz, but let’s be honest: we all saw this coming. Reports of locker room dysfunction and personalities clashing have been in abundance over the past few years. Now, Utah decided to break up part of the band and move into rebuild mode.

Reasons Why Utah Jazz Can & Can’t Win NBA 2022-23 Championship

Strengths

  • Rebuild: The Utah Jazz will have an assortment of first-round picks and young players necessary for a successful rebuild. Over the next seven years, Utah will have 15 first-round picks, most of which are courtesy of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers. The Jazz did an exceptional job building up the value of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert in the trade market and executing mind-bogglingly impressive deals; if they can’t win now, they might as well work on acquiring as many tools and assets for the future!
  • Youth: Utah’s starting lineup still has two older players, Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic, but is pretty youthful outside that. Its remaining projected starters, Lauri Markkanen, Collin Sexton, and Walker Kessler, are all in their early-to-mid 20s. Even the Jazz bench is filled with youth (besides Jordan Clarkson and Rudy Gay.) While this may not be a direct positive for this season, it is promising for the future.

    Weaknesses

    • Defense: Losing Rudy Gobert will demolish the Jazz defense; he was the only player capable of making them a halfway decent team on that end of the floor. Throughout the past three seasons, Rudy Gobert has had the first, second, and fourth-highest DRAPTOR scores in the NBA. The DRAPTOR metric measures how many points a particular player improves their team’s defense over an average of 100 possessions. It is yet another way to evaluate a player’s importance when they are on the court versus off the court. While Gobert is an incredible interior defender with terrific timing and long arms, it is still evident, based on various metrics, including DRAPTOR, that the rest of the Jazz team is horrendous on defense. They may be the worst team in the NBA on that end of the floor this season.
    • Chemistry: Rebuilds can be tough in the beginning: on-court chemistry can be challenging to form when the majority of your team is filled with newly acquired players. It will be interesting to see how this roster pans out with the wide assortment of young players and veterans on the Jazz. Still, expect a rocky road for Utah in the 2022-23 season.
