Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, the Utah Jazz is an NBA franchise playing in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference. Founded in 1974 as the New Orleans Jazz, the team relocated in 1979, changing their name to fit their new location in Utah. Since 1991 the Jazz has played their home games in the Vivint Smart home Arena in Salt Lake City.
Like most teams, the Jazz experienced a great deal of struggle in their first few years, but soon developed into an extremely successful team, earning 20 consecutive playoff appearances. By the 1990s the Jazz were the team to beat, culminating two sequential NBA Finals appearances, but falling just short of a victory both years. Now on the upswing in recent years, the Utah Jazz roster is full of promising young talent, like Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert, all hoping to reach levels of greatness once seen by former Jazz standouts Karl Malone, Pete Maravich and John Stockton.
