SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz have been led by young players over the past few weeks, especially in the absence of Lauri Markkanen.

On the Jazz Notes podcast, Ben Anderson and Chandler Holt gave the Jazz weekly grades in various categories.

The Jazz received grades on veteran performance, youth development, standings, and fun factor.

With the emergence of Keyonte George as a starter and the steady play of Ochai Agabji, the Jazz’s highest grade was a B+ for the young guys.

“The young guys are doing well,” Anderson said. “That’s what Jazz fans want to see. They’ve been part of the reason why (the Jazz) are winning games.”

Simone Fontecchio has also been big for Utah over the past two weeks. He averaged 10.8 points on about 39% from downtown.

Despite posting a 5-9 record, November has been a pretty fun month for the Jazz.

There were the two close games against the Suns in the Delta Center, the back-to-back wins over New Orleans, and a good amount of memorable highlights.

Specifically looking at the 2-2 week, the Jazz Notes podcast gave the Jazz a B- for Fun Factor.

Currently, the Jazz sit 12th in the West with a record of 6-12. They are 2.5 games back from the 10th-seeded Los Angeles Clippers.

Utah faces a group of Western Conference teams over the next 12 days and will look to climb up the standings with a few wins.
