Tuesday vs. Phoenix, 8:30 p.m., TNT
It's not quite do-or-die, but almost. If the Jazz win this quasi-play-in, they're in. If they lose, they must beat Portland and hope Suns lose to Spurs.
Thursday vs. Portland, 6 p.m., ROOT
If Jazz are playoff-bound, imagine this fun starting lineup vs. Blazers: Blake Ahearn, Alec Burks, Jeremy Evans, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter.
Friday at ESA or ZBBC
This will either be the season-ending Locker Room Cleanout (at the arena) or Utah's first playoff practice (at the practice facility).
HOT: Devin Harris
Point guard's improved 3-point shooting and offensive execution have sparked the Jazz's recent success.
NOT: Gordon Hayward's ear
Shooting guard's ear was the unfortunate recipient of a weird and unsportsmanlike Delonte West Willy.
THE BIG STAT: 65
That's how many extra minutes the Jazz have played in seven overtime games this season. Utah became only the third team in NBA history to go for the OT-cycle, having played in single, double, triple and quadruple overtime games this season. The Jazz are 4-3 in overtime games, including wins over Orlando (117-107, OT) and Dallas (123-121, 3OT) this past week.
