More significant, the Jazz earned his admiration: Antetokounmpo said they are the"best team in the West."
Antetokounmpo, the reigning NBA MVP, finished with 29 points, 15 rebounds and six assists, after being held to 2 first-half points -- his fewest at all this year.
"It only looks interesting. Like when I see them perform, it seems fun, it appears simple," Antetokounmpo explained. "It seems easy. For surethey seem like us annually, and man, once you're at there and you are playing with this assurance, you are tough to beat for sure."
They have won 17 of their past 18 games, with the initial success of the stretch too coming from the Bucks on Jan. 8.
Ingles said they'd take a moment to observe the success, but after that it would return to business.
"I really don't think we are that fulfilled just yet," explained Ingles, who travelled 7-for-9 out of 3-point variety.
That is because their objectives are a lot larger than the normal season, particularly after last year, when they blew a 3-1 result in Denver and have been removed from the first round.
"We do not wish to be the best group in February; we are interested in being the best group in July," Mitchell stated.
Being admired at the top role remains something fresh for Mitchell along with his teammates. Since the leaders at Utah, Mitchell's and Gobert's avenues to getting NBA All-Stars weren't written in stone, and they have developed an underdog mentality that's carried on to the group.
"It is different in my four decades. You have a look at us all and every narrative... [we're ] underrated," Mitchell stated. "I think today we are at a stage where folks are coming , and how we have reacted to this is quite impressive. I believe there is much more people can do in order to continue to get better, but it does not hurt to take the moment and understand what we are doing is pretty cool."
The street does not get much simpler for Utah, together with all the Miami Heat, Philadelphia 76ers and back-to-back matches against the LA Clippers up .
Even though the accent may not be about the regular season, the Jazz understand they can not skip this, either.
But, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said,"Nobody is beating their chest about whatever we have done.
"Frankly you never wish to do this and it is never appropriate unless you are the last team standing. That is something we will continue to attempt and prevent."
