It’s no secret that the Utah Jazz are widely expected to be among the worst teams in the NBA this season.
So it was a rather significant surprise, then, when they finished the first half of their season opener Wednesday night at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City with 75 points and a 22-point lead over a Denver Nuggets team that is widely expected to be very good.
Jazz fans and others certainly had some strong reactions on Twitter to the first half action. Here is some of it.

These Jazz play hard. It’s all you can ask for. The joy in watching Jazz basketball is back, even it results in a loss.— THE Jordan Clarkson Appreciator™ (@CowhideGlobe) October 20, 2022
First half overreaction: The Jazz will have the 30th pick this year not the 1st.— benji 🇧🇦 (@BiH_Benjo) October 20, 2022
