The Utah Jazzs are an American professional basketball team based in Salt Lake City.
The Jazz compete in the NBA. The Jazz were one of the least successful teams in the league in their early years.
During the late 1980s, John Stockton and Karl Malone arose as the franchise players for the team and formed one of the most famed point guard–power forward duos in NBA history.
Led by coach Jerry Sloan, they became one of the powerhouse teams of the 1990s, culminating in two NBA Finals appearances in 1997 and 1998.
With the development of Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell into All-Stars, the Jazz launched themselves back into title contention, eventually earning the league’s best regular season record in the 2020-21 season.
