SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – NBC Sports NBA Insider Tom Haberstroh said that despite not having any all-stars, the Utah Jazz are insane at shooting the ball and are “blowing the doors off opposing teams.”

Haberstroh praised the Jazz after defeating the Golden State Warriors by 33 points on Wednesday, January 22.

The NBA Insider complimented the Jazz for their recent success notwithstanding Mike Conley missing a month due to injury and having zero previous all-stars in the starting lineup.

The Jazz are one of the hottest teams in the NBA and have won 18 of their last 20 games.

Utah ranks No. 7 in point differential among the 30 teams. Through 44 games this season, the Jazz are outscoring teams by an average of 5.3 points per contest.

The Jazz are the third-best shooting team in the league this season.

Utah sits behind the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks with a shooting average of 47.5 percent on field goals.

The Jazz are the best three-point shooting team in the league this season shooting 38.9 percent from behind the arc.

After defeating the Warriors, the Jazz sat alone in second place in the Western Conference standings and are four games back in the loss column from the first place Lakers.

The Jazz have a couple of days off before hosting the Dallas Mavericks. Utah and Dallas have yet to play this season. The Mavs and Jazz tip-off on Saturday, January 25 at 3 p.m. (MDT).
