The quantity of highly impressive Utah Jazz streaks just continues to grow.

Nine wins a row. A franchise-record 22 straight victories at home. The NBA’s second-longest stretch of all time with 55 consecutive games knocking down 10 or more 3-pointers. Yes, this Utah Jazz squad (38-11) is cooking, coming off Saturday night’s 137-91 blowout over the Orlando Magic in Salt Lake City that improved its lead in the Western Conference standings to 3.5 games.

Where the Utah Jazz’s 110-point stretch ranks in history

According to Basketball-Reference, even though the Utah Jazz’s 110-point stretch ranks behind nine others and still trails the all-time record (45 in a row from the Philadelphia Warriors in the early 60s) by 20 games, it does represent the longest of any team in the league since 1981.

Plus, it’s worth noting that only one other franchise this century has reached 20 games (the Oklahoma City Thunder’s run came to an end at 21 back in 2019).

Furthermore, across these past 25 Jazz games, the group of bucket-getters has poured in 120-plus points 11 times, including three scoring totals above the 130 mark. Its per-game average in this prolific span is sitting at 120.0 points.

Looking at the season as a whole to date, Utah has come up shy of 110 points on only eight occasions, scoring less than 100 points only three times. Now, the team is averaging 117.2 points per game, which currently ranks No. 3 in the NBA.
