The NBA regular season is coming to an end, and the Utah Jazz host the Minnesota Timberwolves (Friday, 7 p.m., ROOT) in what might be their last home game of the season.
Unless, of course, the Jazz make it into the playoffs. But Utah is one game behind the Los Angeles Lakers with three games to play, so - even though the Jazz own a tiebreaker with L.A. - it's a precarious position to be in.
