The Jazz began what’s essentially a two-week journey Tuesday when they flew to California’s capital for Wednesday night's game against the Sacramento Kings at Sleep Train Arena.

The frequent fliers will then head to Denver for a Friday night matchup, make a quick pit stop in Salt Lake City on Saturday and then leave town again Sunday to resume the road swing with stays in Miami, Orlando, Atlanta, Charlotte and Memphis.

“The schedule is what the schedule is,” Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said.

It is, indeed.

To get more specific, here’s what it is: Eight games in 13 days and a total of 6,512 miles in the air, according to the handy WebFlyer.com calculator.

going to be ugly!

The Jazz would get a boost if their health would improve. Both Derrick Favors (back) and Marvin Williams (heel) practiced Tuesday before the team headed for the chartered plane, but their availability remains uncertain. Favors will be a game-time decision against Sacramento, while Williams remains doubtful after missing the past four games.

Despite their struggles, the Jazz remain bonded as they head out on this trip, according to Jefferson.

“We’re getting better. I know that the wins and losses aren’t what people (like) on a consistent basis,” Jefferson said.

It's what most want. Worst record in basketball again!. Th road trip doesn't look to change that.

“But in the locker room, we (continue to) get better. We’re staying together. There’s no player-only meetings. There’s no lashing out by the coaches. There’s no doghouses out there. There’s just guys working to get better.”

There's no place like the road to keep that up.

I think they're definitely getting better.
