20. Utah Jazz Beat the Oklahoma City Thunder
The NBA is a star-driven league, especially in the playoffs when rotations get smaller. So, when the Utah Jazz met up with the Oklahoma City Thunder in the playoffs, the Thunder were supposed to have the edge.
They had three stars, if you consider Carmelo Anthony a star, and the best two players in the series in Paul George and Russell Westbrook.
The Jazz proved that a team could win if they played together and Donovan Mitchell emerged as a force capable of going toe-to-toe with a player that was a year removed from being the league MVP.
Utah ended up winning the series, needing just six games to pull off the upset.
