The Utah Jazz have had a rough past few weeks. They’ve dropped out of the picture for the NBA Playoffs in the Western Conference, which is largely due to the fact that they are just 3-7 over their last 10 games. With a tough upcoming schedule, it doesn’t seem like things are going to get easier or much better for the Jazz in the near future.

One of the players that has been really struggling over this 10-game stretch is Randy Foye. Foye hasn’t had a good season to begin with. One the season, he’s averaging 10.7 points, two assists and 1.4 rebounds per game and has shot just 38.8 percent from the field. The only redeemable thing that Foye has done this season is that he has been efficient from long-range, posting a three-point percentage of 40.3 percent.

Things have actually gotten much worse for Foye over the Jazz’s last 10 games, though. Over that stretch, Foye is averaging just 5.6 points, 1.3 assists and one rebound per game. He’s also shooting an abysmal 28.2 percent from the field over that time. Even his quality three-point shooting has fallen off, shooting just 31.7 percent over Utah’s last 10 games.

For a team that relies heavily on their frontcourt of Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap and Derrick Favors, Utah’s guards have to be efficient with their shooting and have to be able to put points on the board. Foye is one of their featured guards and he hasn’t been able to do what they need him to do lately. If the Jazz want to be able to catch the Los Angeles Lakers in the West, they have to find a way to get Foye performing better, even if that means just getting him to knock down threes consistently once again.
