29. Utah Jazz – 22.5

Prediction: Over

Based on their current projection, you’d figure the Jazz still have much rebuilding to do before they can return to prominence.

Luckily for the residents of Salt Lake City, that’s simply not the case.

Equipped with a core of promising youngsters (Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Trey Burke, Dante Exum, etc.), the team has a bright future ahead of them and realistically are only a few pieces away from returning to the NBA playoffs for the first time since 2011.

The key for their development will be figuring out who stays and goes in their crowded backcourt, which has loads of potential but currently not enough minutes to go around.
