This story is part of ESPN The Magazines Oct. Cheap Jerseys From China . 31 NBA Preview Issue. Subscribe today!Utah JazzOverall: 43 Title track: 103 Ownership: 22 Coaching: 34 Players: 40 Fan relations:?41 Affordability: 19 Stadium experience: 68 Bang for the buck: 58 Change from last year: -3Utah must have liked improving by 28 spots from last years franchise rankings. This year, however, was a reminder of how far the Jazz have to go: They finished third in the Northwest Division, missed the playoffs for the fourth straight year and fell three spots in these rankings.Whats goodThe Jazz continue to be one of the more affordable franchises in the country (19th in sports in these standings). The average cost of a game at Vivint Smart Home Arena is $66.02, the ninth-lowest among NBA venues and $15 less than the league-wide average. Team ownership (ranked No. 22 overall) isnt falling into the tank-and-pray trap, either, despite Utahs inability to sneak into the playoffs the past three seasons. CEO Gail Miller announced $110 million in renovations to the arena that will be completed before the 2017-18 season, and the Jazz gave a lengthy extension to coach Quin Snyder, one of the best in the business since he arrived in Utah.Whats badThe Jazz are in an unenviable position, both in their division and in their conference, which might explain a 103rd-place title track ranking. Only seven NBA teams scored worse when fans were asked if their teams would win a title in their lifetimes (even the Knicks scored better than the Jazz). That said, this season, the team has enough talent that it might be able to turn in its first playoff appearance since the 2011-12 season. Four Jazz players are among the top 100 in the NBA in player efficiency rating, and Dante Exums return might be an X factor for Utah. Still, the team has gone nearly a decade without a conference finals appearance, and this isnt likely the year it will break that streak.Whats newRemember that whole renovation thing? Well, in the meantime, Smart Home Arena remains a quarter-century-old building that has had very little done to it, other than some cosmetic and tech improvements. That pushed Utah down 20 spots in stadium experience this year, into not only the bottom half of the NBA in this metric but also the bottom half across sports. Construction on the arena is scheduled to begin when the 2016-17 season ends and finish before the start of 2017-18. Thats a tight window for completion, but if Utah can get it done, its ranking might wind up as rejuvenated as its arena.Next: Portland Trail Blazers?| Full rankings Wholesale NFL Jerseys China . Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a skid-snapping win. Quick stopped 27 shots in his return from a 24-game injury absence, Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:55 to play, and the Kings snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

MARINA BAY, Singapore -- Nico Rosberg took pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix with a dominant display under the lights at the Marina Bay Circuit as Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton failed to put a clean lap together and slipped to third behind Daniel Ricciardos Red Bull.Rosberg set a new record lap time of 1:42.584, beating Sebastian Vettels best time on the same layout in 2013 by over 0.25s. The stellar lap not only beat the historic record but also smashed the attempts of his rivals, with a 0.531s gap to Daniel Ricciardo in second and a 0.704s margin over Hamilton.Rosberg set his fastest time on his first attempt and despite a clean second lap, he couldnt improve. Hamiltons first effort was far from perfect, but as he attempted to chase Rosbergs benchmark he went deep into the second corner and made another mistake on the exit of Turn 7. Ricciardo improved significantly between his first and second runs in Q3, beating Hamilton to second, and was actually the fastest driver of all through the final sector. Max Verstappen struggled to get his tyres working on both runs and finished 0.744s off Rosberg in fourth.Although Rosberg made the battle between Mercedes and Red Bull look rather one-sided during qualifying, it could swing back the other way in the race as both Red Bulls will the start the race on a harder compound than the Mercedes due to their tyre choices in Q2. That will allow Ricciardo and Verstappen to run longer into the race than Rosberg and Hamilton, which could put them in strong positions after the first pit stops.Kimi Raikkonen was the sole Ferrari in the top ten after Sebastian Vettel dropped out of qualifying in Q1 with a rear anti-roll bar issue. Raikkonens time was 0.212s shy of Verstappen ahead of him but a comfortable 0. Cheap Jerseys. 657s clear of Carlos Sainz in sixth. Both Sainz and Toro Rosso Daniil Kvyat returned to Q3 after two disappointing weekends in Spa-Francorchamps and Monza and will line up ahead of Nico Hulkenbergs Force India, Fernando Alonsos McLaren and Sergio Perez in the second Force India.The two Williams failed to make the top ten, with Valtteri Bottas just 0.003s shy of Hulkenberg in tenth while Felipe Massa was another 0.251s off his teammate. Q2 ended with two sperarate accidents as Romain Grosjean lost the rear of his car under braking at Turn 10 and hit the barriers and Jenson Button clipped the wall on the exit of Turn 14, suffering a puncture on the run down to Turn 16. The incidents ended the qualifying hopes of both drivers but also brought out yellow flags at two points on the track. Perez appeared to pass Esteban Gutierrez under the yellow flags for Buttons stricken McLaren while on the hot lap that secured his place in Q3. Button ended up 13th ahead of Gutierrez, Grosjean and Marcus Ericssons Sauber in 16th.Vettels suspension problem in Q1 saw his Ferrari lift its wheel into corners, but the team initially told him to stay on track and attempt to set a time. However, as he clocked sectors times several tenths shy of the next slowest car, it soon became clear that he did not have the pace to make the cut for Q2 and he returned to the pits. The mechanics attempted to solve the problem in the closing moments of the session, but ultimately ran out of time leaving Vettel 22nd and last on the grid. He will start behind the two Manors, Jolyon Palmer, Felipe Nasr and Kevin Magnussen, who also dropped out in Q1.
