The Utah Jazz can’t look up without being reminded of where they sit in the playoff race. The standings are literally right in front of them, on a whiteboard in the team’s locker room at EnergySolutions Arena.

And while the only conversation among pundits and fans right now seems to be whether the Jazz will or won’t, can or should, sneak into the postseason for the second straight year, there has been relatively little chatter about it among the Jazz players.

"Everybody pretty much knows it mentally," Derrick Favors said. "Just don’t talk about it in the locker room — everybody knows that we need to come out there and have a good game and be back in the playoff race."

The Jazz on Monday walloped the Philadelphia 76ers 107-91, snapping their second four-game losing streak in their last 12 games.

"We’ll continue to fight as long as we have fight in us," coach Tyrone Corbin said.

Entering Tuesday, the Jazz were once again a single game behind the Los Angeles Lakers for the No. 8 seed. While the Jazz have faltered, the Lakers haven’t exactly seized the opportunity. Going into Wednesday’s game in Minnesota, they have lost three straight.
