The Utah Jazz had to put in a great deal of effort to see themselves qualify for the finals. They did just that and managed to play for the NBA Championship twice. Their run in the NBA began in the mid-seventies, which was a dismal time for them. It wasn’t until 1984 that they made their first playoff appearance. It proved to be a turning point for the team as they didn’t miss their playoff spot till 2004.
In the late 80s, the Jazz found one of the best ‘point guard and forward’ that has earned a permanent place in NBA history. John Stockton and Karl Malone carried the weight of the team on their shoulders and led the team to their first two conference titles in 1997 and 1998. This gave them two shots to the NBA Championship. However, both times the Jazz played in the NBA Finals, Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls put an end to their dream run.
