Utah Jazz Tickets
Many casual sports wonder as to how the Utah Jazz got its name. After, all who has ever heard of jazz being big in Utah? The story behind the unusual pairing comes from the fact that the team originally started in New Orleans (considered by most to be the birthplace of jazz music), and when the team was moved to Utah in 1979, it decided to keep the name. Even if the name can be a puzzler, very few would argue against the Utah Jazz as being one of the consistently best teams in the NBA. The team has made the NBA finals twice, the playoffs 28 times and has had the unique honor of winning 50 or more games throughout 16 different seasons. The Utah Jazz also has arguably had a couple of the greatest players to play the game as part of its team: Karl Malone and John Stockton. You can grab your Utah Jazz Basketball tickets at StubHub.
When does the season start?
The preseason begins during the beginning of October while the regular season starts later in the month. Regular season games began with Utah taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder. Playoffs traditionally begin in Mid-April of the following year.
Who is the head coach for the Utah Jazz?
Since 2014, the head coach for the Utah Jazz is Quin Snyder. He recently signed a long-term renewal, due to his part in helping make Utah Jazz one of the current best teams in the NBA. Under Snyder's guidance, the Utah Jazz has made it to the playoffs in three seasons in a row. During Snyder's tenure, the team has also hit the 50-win mark twice. All these accomplishments led Quin Snyder to be in the running for the 2018 NBA Coach of the Year.
The Utah Jazz has had several notable players on the team. Two stand out, however, as being considered a couple of the greatest players the game has ever seen. Karl Malone is considered by many to be the best power forward of all-time, while John Stockton is thought of just as highly as a point guard. Stockton held the record for assists at the time of his retirement while Karl Malone retired with the second-highest number of points in NBA history. The two players will forever be linked in the minds of basketball fans as they were teammates for 18 seasons. Points scored by Malone came from an assist by Stockton so often that "Stockton to Malone" became a common phrase during the play-by-play. The teammates even shared the NBA MVP Award for the first time in the organization's history. Not only that, but the two players made it to the playoffs every season that they played together.
How many home games are there?
There are typically three home games scheduled as a part of the preseason for each year. The Utah Jazz then have 41 home games scheduled as part of the regular season.
