Top-seeded Jazz fail to make the grade

After eliminating the Memphis Grizzlies in five games to open the NBA playoffs, the Utah Jazz joined nine of the past 10 top overall seeds in reaching at least the conference semifinals. A 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, though, means the top seed will not win the NBA title for the fourth consecutive season.
