SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will have an additional national TV broadcast after their matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers was picked up by TNT.
The Jazz and 76ers will tip off at 8 p.m. MST on February 1 instead of the originally scheduled 7 p.m. tip time.
TNT was originally set to air the Cleveland Cavaliers matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies, however, it has been replaced by the Jazz and 76ers meeting in Salt Lake City.
The Grizzlies have fallen to 15-27 on the season due to injuries throughout the roster while both the Jazz and 76ers are vying for playoff spots in their respective conferences.
Our home game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Feb. 1 will now tipoff at 8 p.m. MT.
The game will be exclusively televised nationally on TNT.
