The astounding stat Jazz stars Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert need to hear about ASAP
The Utah Jazz notched their 47th win of the season over the San Antonio Spurs on Monday, retaking the No. 1 spot in the Western Conference back from the Phoenix Suns. The Jazz won the game sporting their Statement gold jerseys.
Apparently, according to Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune, this particular uniform is quite the lucky charm for the Jazz, as they have gone undefeated in them this 2020-21 season.

Are Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert aware about this? If not, Jazz Nation needs to let them know about this lucky charm ASAP.
If the Jazz are just going to keep winning with these uniforms on, they might as well just wear them for the entirety of the postseason.
Bojan Bogdanovic sees it that way:
Bojan, on the Jazz's turnaround from being terrible in the yellow jerseys last year to being undefeated in them this year: "I don't really care, but if we're undefeated, let's save them for the playoffs."

For sure, they would surpass the the 2017 Golden State Warriors, 2001 Los Angeles Lakers, and 1983 Philadelphia 76ers, the three teams that lost just once in a single playoff run. Considering their track record this year, Utah would just stroll its way to the golden Larry O’Brien Trophy.
According to Larsen, the Jazz’s fortunes have turned a 180 from a season ago. They went 1-7 while wearing the jerseys the previous campaign and are 9-0 this year.
Obviously, we’re just having a bit of fun with this information. On a serious note, Larsen did mention that Utah’s opponents are considerably easier this year while wearing the Statement jerseys. So, don’t get your hopes up too much Jazz fans. This isn’t the surefire ticket to the NBA title.
