|Team Outlook and Scouting Report|
The Jazz jumped from a projected 7th best conference record to the best after upgrading to Mike Conley. By adding one of the best shooters, who is also pretty clutch, in Bojan Bogdanovic and a very solid underrated big man in Ed Davis the Jazz are now #1 in the West. But after the Clippers' got Kawhi and Paul George and the Lakers got Danny Green and re-signed Javale McGee the Jazz are now at #3 in the West. They have a 49.9% chance of getting past the first round of the playoffs. They have a 21.4% chance of getting past round 2. Their chances of then winning the West is 8.8%. They have 3.8% chance of winning the championship.
