Wanna do a voting? Best individual series all time by Jazz players? 

Post#1 » by Joao Saraiva » Sat Apr 11, 2020 11:38 am

Some time ago I ran a project here about the top 25 Jazz players of all time.

Since there is no new basketball right now, I'd like to propose the top 10 best individual series by a player in a Jazz uniform ever. Or should I make it top 20?

I gotta say I'm taking this time to rewatch some of our amazing series over the years.

What do you guys think?

Should we do this project with two day threads with votes?

Wanna share your knowledge as a Jazz fan and possibly give the youngest fans a reason to watch some old games?

Let me know what you think guys!

(Rewatching the 94 run right now, starting with San Antonio vs Utah, even tough the youtube footage is really bad I still like to rewatch these games.)

Well I guess there is no interet in voting for this. Thought it could be fun while there is no basketball going.

Stockton in 88-89:

27.3pts
13.7ast
3.3rbs
3.7stl
1.7blk

Total games: 3. He averaged more steals than rebounds...

BTW, I checked Malone's playoffs stats and they are pretty mind-blowing in terms of raw numbers.

The real decision the Jazz FO is making is between Continuity, Cap Flexibility, and Cash Considerations.

He who shall not be named:
Gordon Hayward 2016-17 vs. Clippers. If you take out the game he was injured he averaged:
27.2p 8.2r 3.3a and was decently efficient. Probably on the tail end of the top 10, but the best series by an individual Jazz player in recent memory.

Mitchell vs. Thunder (17-18): 29/7/3/1.5s on 46/36/92 shooting
Also probably on the tail end

Sure there has to be a Deron season or two in there, maybe Boozer.

AK, Memo, and Boozer all had significant injuries heading into the 2010 playoff series against the Denver Nuggets. If memory serves me correctly, Memo missed the entire series and we were starting Krylo Fesenko. Nuggets were the favorites.

Deron Williams averaged 26/11/3 on percentages of 50/48/80 and totally controlled the series. I remember it standing out to me at the time as one of the more dominant series I've seen by one Jazz man....
