The franchise began to play in 1974 as the New Orleans Jazz as a tribute to New Orleans’ history of Jazz music, but moved to Salt Lake City in 1979. The Jazz had a very rough beginning as a franchise, having not qualified for a single playoff appearance until 1984. However, the team immediately took a turn for the better, and did not miss the playoffs again until 2004. The late 1980s were defined by the duo comprised of point guard John Stockton and forward Karl Malone. Karl Malone went on to score more points in his career than any player in the history of the league, while John Stockton currently holds two of the most unbeatable records in the NBA for most assists and most steals. Despite the duo’s dominance, bad luck kept them from an NBA championship despite their extremely successful careers. Jazz-Rockets games sell out fast, so be sure to get yours now!

The Malone and Stockton duo helped fuel the team’s rivalry with the Houston Rockets which began in the 1990s, where the Rockets’ duo of Hakeem Olajuwan and Clyde Drexler met in the playoffs against Stockton and Malone. Since then, the two teams have faced each other multiple times in the NBA playoffs. The Los Angeles Lakers also are a major rival of the Utah Jazz. During the 90s, their rivalry was at an all time high because of many intense and significant matches. Today, they still pose a threat to the Utah Jazz, but Utah is able to hold their own.
