If the Jazz beat the Los Angeles Lakers tonight, scheduled start time for Game 7 of their NBA Western Conference semifinal playoff series will be Monday at 8:30 p.m. (MDT), the NBA announced today.

TNT will air the game from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, as was previously announced.

Game 6 is scheduled for 8:30 tonight at EnergySolutions Arena, with the Lakers up 3-2 - and the Jazz facing elimination with a loss — in the best-of-seven series.

ESPN will air tonight's game nationally.

KJZZ also will carry tonight's game locally, but for NBA/national network contractual reasons the Jazz's flagship station would be banned from airing the if-needed Game 7.
