The Utah Jazz made history on Tuesday night and not for good reasons. The Denver Nuggets became the 12th team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 deficit and win their series after a dramatic 80-78 victory over the Jazz. Utah was a good team, with great players, who looked solid throughout the whole series. Yet, they managed to lose three straight games and signed their name on one of the most embarrassing lists in NBA history.
The defeat was very painful but the backlash was something else. The comparison with the Golden State Warriors who blew a 3-1 lead in 2016 didn’t take too long and fans were ruthless with the Jazz.
Moreover, things went crazy when somebody decided to take the ‘J’ off their logo and leave it like ‘Utah Azz’.

Some fans were laughing at this while others weren’t having it, calling out the people behind this for their lack of imagination.

Well, this won’t stop anytime soon. The defeat was big, more so knowing all the factors involved in the situation. The future is bright for the Jazz, even more after Donovan Mitchell promised he won’t suffer this type of defeat ever again in his career.
