5 Things to Watch for During Utah Jazz's Final Games
Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Because Utah Jazz fans grew accustomed to cheering on winning teams for decades, the struggles of the last few years haven't been easy to accept.

From 1982 to 2010, the Jazz made the playoffs 24 out of a possible 27 times under the direction of Frank Layden and Jerry Sloan.

In the last 3.5 years with coach Tyrone Corbin, the team has made the postseason just once. The Jazz were knocked out in the first round following the lockout-shortened 2011-12 campaign.

This season, they've been at or around dead last in the Western Conference since opening night.

Finding bright spots hasn't been impossible though, thanks to the collection of talented young players that management has found in three of the last four drafts.

Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, Alec Burks, Enes Kanter, Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert have done plenty to put smiles on fans' faces, while the losses pile up. 

Because of them, the future looks bright. Clues on just how bright should be on display between now and the end of the season.
