An awfully tough season just wrapped up for Utah Jazz fans.

The team endured 57 losses and finished with the worst record in the Western Conference.

And to make matters worse, the NBA playoffs started over the weekend. The Jazz used to be a regular participant, like the run of 20 consecutive appearances from 1984 to 2003. But the Jazz last made the playoffs in 2012 and last won a postseason game in 2010.

So in an effort to cheer up Jazz fans, here’s a gallery of Jazz playoff games through the years. There’s John Stockton in short shorts, Karl Malone running over Dennis Rodman and Adrian Dantley doing his thing.
