SALT LAKE CITY -- As the seconds ticked down Monday in Game 4 of what would be a first-round playoff sweep, Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favours cursed all the way off the court.

It was a sign that while goals may have been met, no one was satisfied.

Less than 24 hours later, Jazz brass and teammates echoed those sentiments as exit interviews were conducted and lockers cleared for the summer.

Yes, the team surprised some by finishing above .500 and reaching the playoffs. But there is plenty of room for improvement with four players 22 or younger and key veterans returning.

Plus, with the financial flexibility to add a few key pieces, the Jazz were setting their sights even higher next year -- with enough wins to earn home-court advantage in the post-season.
