The Jazz are a professional basketball team based out of Utah. They are part of the Western Conference’s Northwest Division, and they play their games at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Utah Jazz Brief History

The team began its run at the NBA as an expansion franchise in 1974, when they played in New Orleans.

And, the team remained in NOLA until 1979, when they moved to Salt Lake City.

This franchise was indeed one of the least successful ones in the league during its first years.

The team needed ten seasons to make it to the postseason for the first time, in 1984.

But, from that point on they didn’t miss the playoffs for 20 years, until 2004.

The team found its best duo of players during the late eighties in Karl Malone and John Stockton.

These two players are considered one of the best power forward-point guard duos in the history of the league.
