Utah Jazz 2014-2015 Outlook
New head coach Quin Snyder has shown some innovative touches during the preseason, and the Jazz are getting better looks. Though they’re still shooting about 19 threes per game, they rank sixth among all preseason squads in long-distance accuracy with a cool 37.1 percent.
The second wave of the youth movement begins this season. There’ll be no title talk, and even the playoffs are a pipe dream. But there’s no shortage of potential.
The Utah Jazz play their home games at EnergySolutions Arena. EnergySolutions Arena opened in 1991 and was originally called the Delta Center. In 2006 EnergySolutions purchased the naming rights to the arena and it has been called the EnergySolutions Arena ever since. Utah businessman Larry Miller coordinated the construction of the arena in 1990 and he still owns and operates the EnergySolutions Arena today. In addition to hosting Utah Jazz NBA home games, EnergySolutions Arena also hosts all of the home professional football games for the Utah Blaze of the Arena Football League. EnergySolutions Arena has a seating capacity of 19,911 devoted die-hard Utah Jazz fans. EnergySolutions Arena has hosted numerous memorable events and concerts during its short existence including the 1993 NBA All-Star Game, the Men’s Western Athletic Conference college basketball tournaments from 1993 through 1995, the 1999 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, The Rolling Stones Bigger Bang Tour concert in 2005 and U2’s Vertigo Tour concert in 2005. During the 2002 Winter Olympics, the EnergySolutions Arena hosted the figure skating and short track speed skating competitions. The EnergySolutions Arena is slated to host the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight rounds of the Men’s NCAA College Basketball Tournament in 2010.

The Utah Jazz franchise was originally founded in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana in 1974.
Even with future hall of famer “Pistol” Pete Maravich leading the charge, the Utah Jazz never recorded a winning season in its first 5 seasons in New Orleans. Following the 1978-1979 NBA season, owner Sam Battistone moved the team from New Orleans to Utah. Initially, the franchise’s losing ways continued as the Utah Jazz did not record a winning for its first 4 seasons in Utah. During the 1983-1984 season, the Utah Jazz finally finished with a record above .500 (45-37) and the team won a playoff series for the first time in franchise history. After the 3-2 series win over the Denver Nuggets in the 1st round of the playoffs, the Utah Jazz lost to the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference Semifinals. That first playoff appearance set off a 20-year streak in which the Utah Jazz advanced to post-season play. The 20-year streak is the second longest consecutive playoff streak in NBA history (second only to the Portland Trailblazer’s 21-year streak from 1982 through 2003). During this stretch run, Hall of Fame players Karl Malone and John Stockton formed one of the most dynamic duos in NBA history. The Utah Jazz reached the Western Conference Finals 3 times before finally advancing to its first ever NBA Championship Series in 1997. The timing could not have been worse, as Michael Jordan had recently “un-retired” and was leading the Chicago Bulls to the franchise’s 2nd 3-peat in the 1990’s. Despite winning a franchise record 64 games during the 1996-1997 season, the Chicago Bulls defeated the Utah Jazz 4-2 in the 1997 NBA Finals. The following season the Utah Jazz won 62 games during the regular season, but once again the Chicago Bulls defeated the Utah Jazz 4-2 in the 1998 NBA Finals. Malone and Stockton each retired from the NBA shortly thereafter, and the rebuilding process began in earnest in the early 2000’s. After missing the playoffs from 2003 through 2006, the Utah Jazz made a successful run to the Western Conference Finals following the 2006-2007 NBA season. With a young talented nucleus, the future looks bright for the Utah Jazz.
The Utah Jazz have retired the following players’ numbers: Frank Layden’s #1; Adrian Dantley’s #4; Pete Maravich’s #7; John Stockton’s #12; Jeff Hornacek’s #14; Karl Malone’s #32; Darrell Griffith’s #35 and Mark Eaton’s #53.
