Utah Jazz: Previewing the April Schedule

The Jazz have 16 games in the month of April.

On paper, the Utah Jazz have the easiest remaining schedule in the Western Conference. Let's preview Utah's April schedule.

Date - Opponent

4/2 vs Chicago Bulls

4/3 vs Orlando Magic

4/5 @ Dallas Mavericks

4/7 @ Phoenix Suns

4/8 vs Portland Trail Blazers

4/10 vs Sacramento Kings

4/12 vs Washington Wizards

4/13 vs Oklahoma City Thunder

4/16 vs Indiana Pacers

4/17 @ Los Angeles Lakers

4/19 @ Los Angeles Lakers

4/21 @ Houston Rockets

4/24 vs Minnesota Timberwolves

4/26 @ Minnesota Timberwolves

4/28 @ Sacramento Kings

4/24 @ Phoenix Suns

The Jazz play very winnable home games against teams like the Bulls, Magic, Wizards, Thunder, and Timberwolves. That should provide some cushion for tough stretches like the one next week, where they play at the Mavericks, at the Suns, then host the Blazers in four nights.

The Jazz currently hold a 3.0 game lead over the Phoenix Suns for the top spot in the Western Conference standings. The Jazz face the Suns twice this month in two games that could determine playoff seeding. With two games at Phoenix, the Jazz would do well to at least split that April series against the Suns.
