Monday on TV: It's looking grim for the Utah Jazz

The NBA playoffs (6 p.m., ROOT and TNT) continue tonight, and it could be the end of the season for the Utah Jazz.

They trail the San Antonio Spurs 3-0 in their first-round series, and the average margin of defeat in the first three games is 19.3 points.

Add to that the comments of that Jazzman Al Jefferson made in an interview with Brian T. Smith of The Salt Lake Tribune and things aren't looking real good.

"I just think it gets to the point where you're just playing a team that's better than you; that know what it takes to win and know how to win," Jefferson said, adding, "I just think we're playing against a team that is at its peak, and I don't see nobody beating 'em. ... It's a great team. I just take my hat off to 'em. Mad respect."
