TWO NBA ERAS OVER: The Utah Jazz's post-season run ends at 20 and the Portland Trailblazers' ends at 21. Neither won an NBA title in that time. Both ran up against the Bulls buzzsaw in the 90s, and the Blazers had a collapse for the ages against the Lakers. I don't know what else to add--both were consistently really good teams, but never quite good enough.
