Without knowing the makeup of the Jazz's roster after next Thursday's NBA trade deadline which means Tuesday's game vs. Golden State may be the last appearance for the current team it is difficult to project the outcome of the rest of the season.
But here's a basic outlook for Jazz fans to ponder during the All-Star break as they look ahead to the remaining one-third of the schedule:
• The Jazz (30-24) stand seventh in the Western Conference. Unless something out of the ordinary occurs next week, it would be equally unlikely for them to fall out of the playoff picture or move into the top five. That would enable them to avoid facing the West's Big Three San Antonio, Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the playoffs.
