The 2010–11 Utah Jazz season was the 32nd season of the franchise in Salt Lake City, and the 37th overall in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Jazz started off the season strong, posting a 15-5 start to the season. Following a 121-99 routing of the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Jazz peaked in mid-January with a 27-13 record, the fourth-best record in the Western Conference at the time. However, on February 10, legendary Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan and assistant Phil Johnson resigned; Tyrone Corbin was named the new head coach.[1] Soon after, on February 23, the Jazz traded star player Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets for two 1st round draft picks (New Jersey's 2011 and Golden State's conditional 2012) and players, Derrick Favors and Devin Harris. The Jazz would post an 8-17 record after All-Star break, including an 8-game losing streak between March 20th to April 3rd, and end the season with a losing 39-43 record, six games back on the 8th-seeded Memphis Grizzles. In doing so, the Jazz became the first team in NBA history to start 27-13, and fail to make the playoffs.[2]
