It all comes down to this.
Going into tonight's season finale at Memphis, the Jazz know exactly what they must do: Win.
And they know what else they need: A break.
If Utah (43-38) wants to make the postseason for the second year in a row, it'll take a victory over the Grizzlies and Lakers' loss to the Rockets tonight in Los Angeles.
The Jazz have won nine of their last 11 games. The Lakers (44-37) have won eight of 10, including a victory over San Antonio on Sunday.
L.A. won that game without the help of star Kobe Bryant, who is done for the season with a ruptured Achilles.
The Lakers are a half game ahead of the Jazz for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference; however, Utah owns the head-to-head tiebreaker.
The Utah-Memphis game will start about 2 1/2 hours before the L.A.-Houston contest.
The Grizzlies are 2-1 against the Jazz this season. Last time they met -- March 16 in Salt Lake -- Utah came away with a 90-84 win.
Memphis power forward Zach Randolph had 19 points and nine rebounds that night.
In three games vs. Utah this season, Randolph has averaged 20 points and 14.3 rebounds.
Randolph, 31, has played against the Jazz 31 times in his career, averaging 19.3 points and 9.5 rebounds.
Utah is coming off back-to-back victories over Minnesota, one at home on April 12 and another Monday in Minneapolis.
Center Al Jefferson scored 40 points in the win at EnergySolutions Arena and 22 more at Target Center.
In three games vs. Memphis this season, Jefferson has averaged 15.3 points and 7.7 rebounds.
The 28-year-old is due to become a free agent this summer, meaning tonight could mark an end to his three-year tenure with the Jazz.
"I'm not thinking that far ahead," Jefferson said after last Friday's win. "I'm just satisfied that we gave our fans a win for the last home game this season -- a win we most definitely needed."
If the Jazz don't get a win tonight -- and a break from the Rockets -- that victory over Minnesota will be their last home game of the season. However, if everything falls into place, there will be at least two more games to play at EnergySolutions Arena.
