Hey there! Welcome to episode 104 of the Timeout with Ti podcast. I sat down with Ben Mehic on a beautiful Saturday morning to talk about the Utah Jazz, followed by a few quick-fire takes on some other teams.
Ben and I disagreed a bit on the outlook for the Utah Jazz, mostly because he’s a noted pessimist, but we did both come in knowing Utah’s offense would be a slog this season. The Jazz have no clear-cut leading scorer—Rodney Hood is probably the closest thing to it.
The defense will still be great, and as Ben brings up, more steals might help jump-start Utah’s offense. The slogging Jazz will have problems on the offensive end, though—nobody will tune in and mistake them for the Golden State Warriors.
After breaking down Utah’s chances in the West, we talked about Milos Teodosic and the Los Angeles Clippers, the Washington Wizards, and the Milwaukee Bucks a bit. I gushed over Giannis Antetokounmpo, but after what he did on Friday night that’s more than fair.
Hit up me (@TiWindisch), the podcast (@TimeoutwithTi), and Ben (@BenMehicNBA) on Twitter to let us know if you liked the episode or not! I think all three of us are worth a follow regardless, honestly.
