SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz's season is on the brink tonight as they take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals at Vivint Arena.
A Warriors victory would give them their second sweep of the playoffs after they beat the Portland Trail Blazers 4-0 in the first round. With the other semifinal between the San Antonio Spurs tied at two apiece, Golden State would get a significant amount of rest before the Western Conference Finals.
Should the Jazz win, Game 5 would be on Wednesday night in Oakland. No team has come back from a 3-0 deficit in the playoffs.
Tip time tonight is set for 7 p.m. Follow along with our live coverage as the evening unfolds.
