The 1994–95 Utah Jazz season was the team's 21st in the NBA.[1] During the offseason, the Jazz signed free agent Antoine Carr and acquired Adam Keefe from the Atlanta Hawks. In a year of milestones, John Stockton became the NBA's all-time assist leader passing Magic Johnson with 9,921 on his way to a record tying eighth straight assist title. Meanwhile, Karl Malone and Tom Chambers each passed the 20,000 point mark in their careers, as the Jazz posted a 14–1 record in January including a 14-game winning streak. The Jazz finished second in the Midwest Division with a 60–22 record. In the first round of the playoffs, the Jazz took a 2–1 lead over the 6th-seeded Houston Rockets, but went on to lose the series in five games. Following the season, Chambers left to play in Israel, Blue Edwards (who returned to play for his former team at midseason) left in the 1995 NBA Expansion Draft, and James Donaldson retired.
