Utah sports fans are known for their passion and loyalty to their teams. No other team in the state has fans that exemplify such dedication than the fans of NBA's Utah Jazz. Since the franchise moved to Utah from New Orleans in 1980, the love affair between this pro basketball team and its rabid fan base, has not waned.
Jazz basketball is known for its focus on discipline and fundamentals, an allegiance to the game that holds true to the style perfected by the players whose names hang in the rafters: John Stockton, Karl Malone, and Jeff Hornacek, just to name a few.
French big man Rudy Gobert, forward/center Derrick Favors, the Aussie Joe Ingles, rookie Donovan Mitchell and Spain's Ricky Rubio comprise the team's core under head coach Quin Synder. Sweden, Switzerland and Brazil are also represented on Utah's international roster.
Vivint Smart Home Arena, the raucous home of the Utah Jazz, is located in downtown Salt Lake City (only 10 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport) at 301 West South Temple. It is two blocks from the Salt Palace Convention Center and Temple Square.
Consider adding the Utah Jazz experience to any travel itinerary.
