Jazz have won 5 in a row since Dr. Jazz's sacrificial death, 5 in a row since Donovan Mitchell changed his avatar to Baby Yoda, and 5 in a row since they started playing below .500 teams that aren't playing very well

Correlation is causation in the case of Utah and Baby Yoda.

At one time he trended the most in Utah.

Since Donovan Mitchell and Royce O’Neale changed their avi’s to Baby Yoda the Jazz are 12-1

So Baby Yoda’s relationship with Utah provides amazing benefits to the country

Utah: Utah loves Baby Yoda more than any other state, according to the Deseret News. A report from HighSpeedInternet.com found that Utah had the most love for Baby Yoda, mostly due to the state’s family ties.
