Will the Utah Jazz secure a spot in the NBA playoffs? It's very simple.
If the Jazz lose to the Grizzlies in Memphis (6 p.m., ROOT and ESPN), they're out.
If the Jazz beat the Grizzlies, it comes down to the Houston Rockets at Los Angeles Lakers that follows (8:30 p.m., ESPN).
If the Jazz win and the Lakers win, the Jazz are out.
If the Jazz win and the Lakers lose, the Jazz are in.
Also, on tonight's episode of Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), Utahn Dawn Meehan - who's always been a crier - loses her cool completely. And you don't have to take my word for it. Here's what Dawn tweeted at another "Survivor" crier, Lisa Whelchel, earlier today:
"I think tonight I will reclaim the #SurvivorBreakdown hashtag from you!"
And if you're a fan of Suburgatory (7 and 7:30 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4), do not miss these last two episodes of the season. They're very good - and sort of shocking.
