Youth. These guys remain mostly kids. Jefferson, a seven-year veteran, is still only 26. Derrick Favors is 19, Jeremy Evans 23, Gordon Hayward 21, Paul Millsap 26, Harris 28, Ronnie Price 27, C.J. Miles 24. Babies, compared to guys like Steve Nash and Tim Duncan.

Youth isn't a plus unless you can play. Luckily for the Jazz, these guys can. Witness Evans' and Favors' dunks in the first half and Hayward's in the second half against Denver, not to mention Hayward's 34 points. OK, we mentioned it.

It's enough to make even cynics smile.
