The Utah Jazz hit a low point in their historic organization on Wednesday night, losing to the Dallas Mavericks, 118-68.
Utah went 25-of-80 from the field (31.3 percent) and 6-of-35 from three point range (17.1 percent) in a dismal night offensively and managed only 22 points in the entire second half. Their 21 turnovers were only four shy of the number of field goals they made, and as one might expect, that led to a lopsided loss. The 22 second-half points were the fewest ever allowed by a Mavs team in a half, and it’s the fewest points scored in an NBA game since 2016, when the Hawks had 68 against…the Utah Jazz.
The Jazz lose to Dallas by 50, their worst margin of defeat in any game, regular season or playoffs, since the franchise moved to Utah.
The New Orleans Jazz's 56-point loss to Milwaukee in 1979 is the only wider margin in franchise history.

Thought to be a team that could be a legit contender in the west coming into the season, the Jazz are now just 7-6 to start the year.
