Nurk was only around for like 30 games, but he completely transformed that team defensively. Most casual fans didn't pay close enough attention most likely.
Werent they on pace for like a 55 win season once he got there? He was amazing with them. Thats why it is so hard to rank the west. Especially the Northwest with the Blazers, Wolves, Thunder, Nuggets, and Jazz. It wont happen, but all 5 could easily be 50 win teams.
I dont see the Jazz falling off much really. I think Hood will get MIP and their defense will still be great to keep them in games. Nuggets got Milsap (lose gallo), wolves got butler. Thunder got PG13. Gonna be a brutal division.
