Utah Jazz Tickets for Sale

The news out of Utah appears bleak at first look. The Jazz are over the salary cap and are going to have to hope Devin Harris can rejuvenate his career after struggling to emerge as the All Star point guard in New Jersey. Harris certainly has the attributes to be an effective point. He can shoot from deep and penetrate. Harris simply has to learn how to run an offense. In Utah in 2011-2012, he will have to learn how to effectively utilize post players.

The Jazz are loaded in the front court. Al Jefferson and Mehmet Okur offer different looks at center, Paul Millsap and Derrick Favors can be beasts on the inside, and Gordon Haywood blossomed at the end of last season. Jazz tickets could certainly be NBA basketball tickets to watch a team that surprises with one of the best games within 15 feet.

In addition to the new realities on the roster, the Utah Jazz will be coming into the 2011-2012 season with a new head coach. Tyrone Corbin took over after Jerry Sloan left. Corbin served as an assistant under Sloan, so I would not expect the team concept to alter too greatly. Look for Harris and Jefferson, Milsap, Favors, and Okur to run the pick and roll.

Utah Jazz History

The Utah Jazz may seem an unlikely marriage of a city and team name, but this is one of the few teams to have kept the original name after moving. The NBA franchise began as the New Orleans Jazz in 1974. This made much more sense in terms of names, but the city proved unwilling to support the expansion team through the tough times, even after Pete Maravich returned as a local hero. The Jazz played through venue issues and injuries and moved to the Utah in 1979. The move also meant the end of the Maravich era for the organization. Adrian Dantley became the focal point of the offense.

Five seasons later, the Utah Jazz ended the season with a winning record and played in their first postseason series. Dantley and 7-foot-4 center Mark Eaton were the big names on a team that ran through the Nuggets in the first round before losing to the Suns in the Western Conference Semifinals.

Larry Miller purchased the basketball franchise in 1985. That same year the Jazz drafted Karl Malone. The next season John Stockton took over as the starting point guard and the Utah had its dominant duo until 2003. The final piece to what became a familiar site was Jerry Sloan. Sloan took over coaching duties for Frank Layden in 1988. Utah had a defensive stalwart in Eaton, a terrific scorer in Malone, and a terrific point in Stockton. The Jazz became perennial 50-game winners and made deep runs in the NBA postseason.

At the team's height, it played the Bulls in the NBA Finals twice, losing both times. Eventually Stockton and Malone retired or signed elsewhere and Sloan tried to remake the winner with Deron Williams at point. Now the organization has started over again and is loaded up front, so find your Utah Jazz tickets to see if the basketball team can find the right point guard to lead them back to the playoffs.
