Take note: At 26-6, Utah Jazz are the NBA’s best team so far

Looking at individual stats reveals nothing about the Utah Jazz. They have one player among those with the 50 highest scoring averages so far this season. They have only one player among the top 50 per game in rebounding. They don’t have anyone with a top-30 assist average. And they have the NBA’s best record — by a considerable margin. The Jazz are off to the best start in franchise history at 26-6, are on pace to shatter the NBA record for 3-pointers made per game and have won 20 of their last 22 games. They also just handed the reigning champion Los Angeles Lakers their worst loss of the season.
