The 2017–18 Utah Jazz season was the 44th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the 39th season of the franchise in Salt Lake City. On the 4th of July, Gordon Hayward announced his departure from the Jazz and signed with the Boston Celtics. Despite that, the Jazz clinched a playoff berth for the second straight year after defeating the Los Angeles Lakers on April 8, 2018.

They finished the regular season with 48–34, which clinched the 5th seed. In the playoffs, the Jazz faced the 4th seeded Oklahoma City Thunder in the First Round, winning in six games and advancing to the Semifinals for the second consecutive season, where they faced the top-seeded Houston Rockets, losing in five games.
