2013-14, and the biggest fans of the Jazz will seat themselves amidst opposing fans to cheer on their team to victory.

Utah Jazz Team Info
The Utah Jazz are a team that takes part in the Northwest Division,
which is a part of the Western Conference of the NBA, and a division that includes clubs like the Portland Trail Blazers,
Minnesota Timberwolves, Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder. The Jazz are rebuilding their roster in the wake of losing
big men Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap. Those two veterans patrolled the paint in Utah for quite a while, but now the team
is looking to develop youngsters like Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter. Favors is viewed by many people around the league as
a future star player, and he certainly has all the physical attributes to become one of the league's premier frontcourt players.
Favors has the size, athleticism and speed to become a monster down low, and his experience as a starter for the first extended
period in 2013-14 should be crucial for his development. Kanter was the fourth overall pick in the NBA Draft just a couple
of seasons ago, and the team has high hopes for his contributions this season. In the backcourt the Jazz have another potential
star player in Gordon Hayward. Hayward carved out an impressive college career at Butler and almost won the program a National
Championship against Duke when he narrowly missed a half-court shot at the buzzer of the title game. Hayward looks to have
the potential to be a two-way stud that can light it up from the outside. Factor in rookie point guard Trey Burke and this
team has quite the young options moving forward.
The National Basketball Association is
the premier pro hoops league in the world, and that's why so many people head out to arenas all over the country to see their
favorite teams hit the court. Surely, if you're a fan of the Utah Jazz then you've been to at least one home game over the
years. However, it's the biggest fans that also hit the road with the team and cheer them on when they take to the court in
a hostile environment. Get out to see the Jazz take on a quality foe away from home this season and enjoy seeing them silence
the home crowd with a buzzer-beating shot to win the game.
