2014/2015 Utah Jazz Schedule

The Utah Jazz will tip off its 41st NBA campaign against the Houston Rockets on October 29 at EnergySolutions Arena, opening at home for the third straight season. Utah will play all Eastern Conference teams twice each and Western Conference teams four times apiece, with the exception of four out-of-division Western Conference teams which it will face just three times. The four teams include: the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs (two home, one road) and Phoenix Suns and New Orleans Pelicans (two road, one home). Utah Jazz tickets generally sell well no matter how the team is performing as they have a strong group of loyal fans.

Utah Jazz History

The Jazz franchise entered the NBA in 1974 as the New Orleans Jazz and moved to Utah in 1979. The Jazz struggled in their early years in the NBA and took over a decade to qualify for their first playoffs appearance. From that point forward the franchise became a force with John Stockton and Karl Malone forming one of the most successful partnerships in the NBA. The Utah Jazz qualified for the playoffs in twenty consecutive seasons and was one of the most consistent teams in the NBA. However, they were unable to make a deep playoffs run until the late 1990s when they won back to back Western Conference titles. The Jazz were unable to defeat the Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls in either the 1997 or 1998 NBA Finals and are considered one of the best teams never to have won an NBA Championship. The side struggled for a short period after losing Stockton and Malone but quickly became regular playoff qualifiers once again. The Jazz are a consistent franchise but one that don’t appear likely to make a deep playoffs run in the coming seasons.

Utah Jazz Star Player: Trey Burke

Trey Burke was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 9th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and immediately traded to the Jazz. He played college basketball for the Michigan Wolverines. During his sophomore season for the 2012-13 team, he earned National Player of the Year and led his team to the championship game of the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament before he declared for the draft. Burke debuted for the Jazz on November 20, 2013 with 11 points on 5–8 shooting in 12 minutes of play, after missing the beginning of the season due to injury. Burke finished third in the NBA Rookie of the Year Award balloting, a title he probably would have won had he not missed the beginning of the season. He's a rising talent for the Jazz, due to play bigger and better in the coming seasons.

Utah Jazz Star From the Past: John Stockton

John Stockton was selected with the 16th overall pick of the 1984 NBA draft by the Utah Jazz. Stockton is considered one of the greatest point guards of all time and one of the best players never to have won an NBA Championship. In his twenty year career with the Jazz the franchise never missed the NBA playoffs and was a consistent contender for the NBA Championship. He led the side to back-to-back NBA Finals but was unable to defeat the mighty Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. Stockton was a ten time NBA All-Star and was a nine time NBA assists leader. He retired in 2003 with more steals and assists than any other player in NBA history as well as the record for most games played for a single franchise. Stockton is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame and the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time team.

Utah Jazz Head Coach: Quin Snyder

Quin Snyder was hired by the Utah Jazz to be the team's head coach in June 2014, after Tyrone Corbin led the team to a disappointing 25-57 2013/2014 season. This is Snyder's first time as an NBA head coach, having previously worked as an assistant for the Atlanta Hawks and LA Lakers. Prior to that, he was in charge of player development for the 76ers after coaching the NBDL's Austin Toros for three seasons. In his first season with the Toros, Snyder's team won the Southwest Division championship and reached the D-League Finals. In his second season, Snyder led the Toros to a 32-win season; coached in the 2009 NBA D-League All-Star Game in Phoenix; received the Dennis Johnson Coach of the Year award; and reached the D-League Semi-Finals. During his three-year tenure in Austin, Snyder compiled more wins and guided more players to the NBA than any other coach in the D-League.
