Why the Utah Jazz didn’t make the playoffs

For the most part, this is a rhetorical question. The Utah Jazz didn’t make the playoffs because the Jazz were not supposed to make the playoffs. They were not supposed to be fighting for a final playoff spot, they were not supposed to have winning streaks, and they were not supposed to hurt their draft positioning this summer.
