The Utah Jazz crept into the top five of the NBA Rankers and Tankers this week on Gunther and Ben, coming in at the fifth spot after what has been a very good week. The Jazz have won five of six, including wins over three playoff teams in the Los Angeles Clippers, Denver Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks. The only loss came on the front end of a home and home with the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Lakers charge into the number two spot, not because they have the second worst record in the NBA, but because of the drama after the trade deadline, and the nonsense thats going on with the veterans on the team, and their lack of respect for Luke Walton.
