Yup, he exposed them in another loss...which is pretty much happens when the Bucks play in Salt Lake. They lose.
For the record I'm with pace in this discussion, but doesn't everyone lose in Salt Lake pretty much? Maybe I'm off, but I think of the Jazz as having one of the better home court advantages.
Historically yes it's been one of the better home court advantages especially during the Stock / Malone and Deron / Boozer eras. Those teams would have major differences between home / road records. The last decade or so though I think we've been more on par with the rest of the league in terms of HCA.
Thanks I tried googling it and probably could have found it with more digging but the only site I found ended its data with the 13-14 season. So I just recalled how much trouble Dallas always seemed to have in Utah even during the Dirk prime era where they always brought good teams to town.
Altitude, great loud crowds, mostly competitive teams over the years all real factors.
Also Rudy Gobert continues to be the most underappreciated star in the league. Well he and Draymond. People just don't believe in these guys with massive defensive impact and offensive impact that significantly surpasses their surface skill level.
