2000–01 Utah Jazz season

The 2000–01 NBA season was the Jazz’s 27th season in the National Basketball Association, and 22nd season in Salt Lake City, Utah.[1] After the retirement of Jeff Hornacek, the Jazz signed free agents Danny Manning and John Starks,[2] and acquired Donyell Marshall from the Golden State Warriors in an off-season four-team trade.[3] The team also re-signed former Jazz forward David Benoit, and former Jazz guard John Crotty. The Jazz got off to a fast start winning 16 of their first 20 games, but struggled a bit down the stretch losing 9 of their next 13 games. They finished second in the Midwest Division with a 53–29 record,[4] and qualified for the playoffs for the eighteenth straight season. On a more positive note, the Jazz equaled the Los Angeles Lakers‘ record of sixteen consecutive winning seasons above .500,[5] set between 1976–77and 1991–92. The Jazz were ultimately to make it nineteen consecutive winning seasons before finishing with only 26 wins in 2004–05.
