Golden State has the best starting lineup in the NBA and they’re admittedly quite deep, however, I believe Utah’s reserve unit does have the edge, especially based on what we’ve seen in preseason and in the first game of the regular season thus far. Utah’s starters will need to play significantly better than they did in Sacramento, but if they can keep it close, then I’m fully confident that the solid reserves will have the firepower to hold Golden State’s bench at bay.

The problem is reserves don't just play against reserves. GS reserves play with a couple all-stars.

The Utah Jazz have fired Jon Absey, the man who acted as the Utah Jazz Bear since the mascot’s inception in 1994, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned. It is not clear why Absey was let go, but the team did confirm that he is no longer with the organization. – via Salt Lake Tribune

“The Jazz Bear will continue to be one of the most iconic mascots in the NBA,” Jazz spokesman Frank Zang said Friday afternoon. “Out of respect for its character, which is separate from any employee ever associated with it, we have never discussed its identity. We do not discuss individual personnel matters.” … The Jazz plan to replace Absey. A new Jazz Bear performer will be in uniform for Friday’s home opener against the Golden State Warriors, the team confirmed – via Salt Lake Tribune

Yep Goss. Why he's not on the team instead of Neto is beyond me?

Quote:
Getting the ball to the roll man is hard these days, both based on how teams are choosing to guard the P&R across the league and based on Utah’s specific challenges. Where Favors and Gobert are concerned, opponents know they have two above-average roll finishers on their hands, so the approach has often been to put extra bodies in their path instead and thereby force the ball handler to take tough pull-up jumpers.

The bigger problem is Ingles being the only threat on the perimeter

Quote:
Someone who has seen the league’s next-level tracking data confirmed for me that the Ingles-Favors P&R was the most potent among Utah’s most common combinations last season. That’s true both in terms of the points created for Jingles and Fav directly and for the overall performance of offense on any play that included a P&R between those two. It’s easy to see why: both guys can score in a variety of ways, so defenses bend differently when they’re involved in the core action. They have to respect Jingles’ floater, Favors’ short-roll pull-up jumper, and a dozen different iterations. It’s a dangerous combination, and the Kings can testify to that.

then you are left with no shooters on the perimter

Utah’s 81 points in the first half broke the franchise record of 80 points set in December of 1989 against the Warriors. The Jazz also tied an all-time Warriors opponent record for points in a second quarter with 47 and nailed 10 treys, which were the most threes in any quarter in franchise history and one shy of the NBA record, but still fell to 1-1 on the young season after the Warriors’ strong finish. “This is one of the best defensive teams in the league and they’ve got a lot better offensively,” Kerr said. “They put you through a lot of motion, a lot of actions, they’ve got a lot of weapons, they come in with a really deep bench and Mitchell gives them something they haven’t had with playmaking.” – via Deseret News

I said I bet that was a record for a half by the Jazz.

On a team that featured All-Stars like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant — not to mention rookie all-everything Donovan Mitchell and the NBA's reigning defensive player of the year Rudy Gobert — the ultimate decider in the Utah Jazz’s home opener against the defending champion Golden State Warriors was a player the Jazz waived late in the offseason.

Mid July is late? Not picking up his option is waiving? You forgot about the part where he was platooned so Hood and Rubio could kill them every night

Quote:
The Jazz have plenty of big games left in the regular season, but will rue a missed opportunity to send a strong message to the league in front of an ESPN-televised audience.

I'd say they made a pretty strong message regardless

Quote:
But Golden State rallied, and it all came down to Jonas Jerebko, a fan-favorite waived by the Jazz in July to save roughly $4 million in salary cap space, according to multiple reports.

He was a fan favorite? Certainly not a coaches favorite. I certainly figured he'd hurt the Jazz going to the competition

But the Jazz didn’t execute late in the game. In the final three minutes, they scored only two points in six possessions, and those two points came from a fluke rebound that happened to bounce to Jae Crowder.

Going to be tough without spacing

Only a few times in Utah has the anticipation been higher than for this team, and never has it been so since the 1990s. That’s unique, because they have little chance to win a championship (don’t tell Rudy). This week’s FiveThirtyEight numbers gave the Jazz a 5 percent possibility at a title. That’s fifth highest among the league’s 30 teams. But the ESPN analytics website gives the Warriors a 48 percent chance.

You never know. Need some roster and line-up changes and some injuries to GS.
