VIDEO: Will Rudy Gobert win Most Improved Player?

Rudy Gobert didn't win Defensive Player of the Year, but he's up for another award: Most Improved Player. The competition for the award is fierce: There's Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls, who carried the Bulls in Derrick Rose's absence. There's Draymond Green, who emerged as a two-way force and will more than likely receive a max contract this summer. There's also Khris Middleton...

Alec Burks is eager to return to the Jazz

Shoulder surgery forced Alec Burks to miss the Jazz' final 51 games this season.

2014-2015 Season Obituary: The Utah Jazz Improved A Great Deal… And Must Now Confront The Cutthroat Landscape In The Western Conference

In hockey, 10 more wins in a regular season could mean something hugely significant, but with overtime and shootout losses counting for a point, a plus-10 win differential from the previous...
