  • all right.

  • Back to the N b A.

  • Now and we talk a lot about L.

  • A and Brooklyn.

  • But the best record in the league belongs to the Utah Jazz.

  • As you know, they are 24 5 this season.

  • They lead the West by 2.5 games.

  • Best ever start to a season offensively, all about the 3 35 consecutive games with at least 10 3 pointers made easily the longest streak in franchise history in fifth.

  • Longest streak in N B.

  • A history defense.

  • Super solid.

  • They allow less than 107 points per 100 possessions this season.

  • Second best defense of efficiency in the N B A behind the defending champion Leakers.

  • Good times there in Utah.

  • Don't forget what to a couple of finals back in the nineties, UH, ESPN senior n b A writer Zach Lowe joins us now.

  • So Zack, your weekly column on ESPN pluses up.

  • Hello, 10 n ba things that you like and don't like.

  • I love this column and who doesn't like defense?

  • Zack.

  • If you want to win titles, right, so let's start there with the jazz.

  • Gotta win.

  • Gotta have defense if you wanna win titles and that's the undersold.

  • Part of what Utah is doing is you said their number two in points allowed 400 possessions.

  • And it's not just Rudy Gobert.

  • It's everyone on their team.

  • They help each other.

  • They're in sync with each other.

  • The level of cooperation Look right here.

  • Duncan Robinson kind of comes open off the screen.

  • William Bogdanovich flashes Royal.

  • Neil helps him.

  • All they give up is along to, and that's the secret to Utah.

  • They're like the opposite team on defense is they are on offense.

  • They don't give up threes.

  • They don't give up free throws.

  • They don't mess up switches like right here.

  • They get every switch right.

  • And Joe Ingles.

  • When Joe Ingles is blocking your shot, you have problems.

  • But it does begin with Rudy Gobert.

  • He protects the basket, looked at Lou Williams, wants absolutely no part of Rudy Gobert turnover.

  • And you know what?

  • He's a little more mobile than people.

  • Give him credit for getting out here to challenge Lou Williams on a long to again long twos.

  • That's what the Jazz give up.

  • They've been outstanding this season.

  • More credit to them and this guy.

  • I mean, what are you gonna do when LeBron James breaks out a skyhook?

  • I love when we see LeBron's little old man game looking him back down, Back down back then You want a little one leg fade away Have that in your face.

  • And this one, this is my favorite one.

  • He slows down for Joshua Kogi gets Joshua Kogi on his back One handed push shot off the clubs.

  • Are you Are you kidding me with this?

  • This is what's gonna be so fun Is LeBron approaches 40 because he's gonna be able to play until he's 40 plus when he really engages his old man Y m c a m o.

  • And it's just so much fun to watch.

  • And the guys just just keeps going.

  • And lastly, let's give Myles Turner some love.

  • Look at that.

  • That's a two on one with Garrett Temple and Zach Lavine.

  • And Myles Turner is like no problem.

  • Leads the league in blocked shots.

  • He's just been awesome.

  • Keeping an eye on the ball and an eye on his man doesn't lose touch with anybody.

  • Hey, keeps his block shots inbounds, James Harden Goodbye.

  • And then Oh, by the way, Kyrie Irving, Another superstar.

  • Yeah, I'm mobile enough to switch on to you at the end of the shot clock and challenge your shot.

  • That's a miss.

  • He's just has eyes in the back of his head.

  • He sees everything again.

  • Opponents are shooting 45% at the rim with Myles Turner nearby.

  • That's basically the best mark in the entire league.

  • He's maybe the front runner for defensive player of the year.

  • We never give the Pacers that he loved.

  • They just keep on ground.

  • Caris Levert's heard T J Warren's hurt.

  • They just keep on going.

  • A Myles Turner has been sensational for them.

  • Hey, I have a very special place in my heart for the Pacers and my dad was that the Pacers?

  • We lived in Indy.

  • I love that team.

  • And I love the fact that Myles Turner knew that there were some people in some circles that were saying he was soft and he has been, like, so physical under the basket.

  • So I love that you gave him some love, and the old man game with LeBron is fantastic.

  • What you gonna dio?

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
