Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) April 24, 2008 -- The Utah Jazz, members of the National Basketball Association (NBA), were founded in 1974. The team was originally the New Orleans Jazz, but due to owner Sam Birthstoneâs unhappiness in New Orleans (and perhaps his wife's Utah roots), moved to Utah in 1979. The Jazz were one of the most successful teams in the late 1980s and 1990s, winning two Western Conference Titles in 1997 and 1998 under Coach Jerry Sloan, who is still the head coach. The Finalist teams were anchored by the combination of point guard John Stockton and power forward Karl Malone and made the playoffs 20 consecutive seasons.
For a team that's come so far so fast, the, Utah Jazz are leaving a lot of questions up in the air as the 2007-08 season winds down.
The Jazz come hot at the beginning of this season but would they keep competing toughly to win the championship of this season? Last week, Jazz Coach called out his players to make more efforts because there still hard games waiting for them.
In spite of, the Jazz have won some of their last games. The next games are going to be harsher and will need more wise tactics from the coach and players need more confidence. Even, the injury of some essential players of the team, there is no choice if they want to finish the season with a good record if not winning the championship. The pressure is increasing, and the teamâs fans are worrying. So this may cause some problems on the teamâs next games.
