Have Scrappy Jazz Have Lost Their Edge?
(KUTV) The Utah Jazz had a great January, but February has been rough. With the team just back from a disappointing 1-2 road trip, David James went to practice Thursday morning to find out how the slumping Jazz can regain their swagger.

"Yeah I think we took [the last two games] for granted though," forward Al Jefferson said, we thought we just had to show up and they were going to lay down. Same thing that happened in New York. So I hope we learned our lesson now."

The Jazz are 2-7 in their last nine games, so what can be done to turn things around?

"You know every season has [its] ups and downs," point guard Devin Harris said. "Obviously we are in a down point right now. This is where we got to turn it around. Get back to a hard practice today, kind of learn from our mistakes."

Veteran guard Earl Watson says the answer to the Jazz's problems can be solved by putting forth a better effort. "We are a scrappy team," he said. "We have to play with an edge and if you don't play that way you are going to lose. ..Simple."

For second-year player Gordon Hayward, he believes the team needs to find some consistency before it can get better. Friday's game with the Washington Wizards should provide Utah with a chance to do just that.

The Wizards are only 3-10 on the road, and have the second worst overall  record (7-22) in the league.
