Some people forget but the Utah Jazz were the top team in the West at the end of last season.
They were eventually taken down in the playoffs and didn’t make the Finals but they ended last year’s regular season with a 52-20 record.
Things haven’t been as great for the team this year but they’re still a very competitive bunch.
However, they have recently hit a pretty startling rough patch.

The Jazz have lost five straight games and now share a record with the sixth seed Denver Nuggets.
They will still make the playoffs but will they go far playing like this?
Is it time to think about shaking things up for the Jazz?
The Jazz’s Sad Song
The Jazz have been one of those teams always on the verge of greatness for a few years now.
They have a lot going in their favor but they have never been able to break through and have a very strong postseason.
Despite their winning record, few people have ever really considered them championship contenders.
That has led some to think it’s time the team changes things, including pursuing some major trades or relieving head coach Quin Snyder of his duties.
There is a chance that if the Jazz continue to stumble and fall apart in the postseason then the team we see next year will look different than the one we have today.
Moving forward, the Jazz face off against the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Memphis Grizzlies, Oklahoma City Thunder, Phoenix Suns, and Portland Trail Blazers.
Obviously, some of those games are very winnable.
The Jazz will need to come out strong to get back on the right path.NEXT: Are The Jazz Doomed Without Joe Ingles?
