The Utah Jazz and AT&T SportsNet are extending their schedule of “Jazz Playback” programming as the sports shutdown related to the new coronavirus pandemic continues past two months.
AT&T SportsNet will air classic Jazz contests every Monday, Wednesday and Friday over the next four weeks, bringing the total of replayed games to 35.
So far, the network has aired mostly recent classics from Donovan Mitchell/Rudy Gobert teams, but this time the broadcasts will reach back to the peak of the John Stockton/Karl Malone era, fresh off the conclusion of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary that culminated Sunday with Utah’s battles with the Chicago Bulls.
A new batch of 12 replays began Monday with the first of three games during “1998 Bulls week.” The next week focuses on Donovan Mitchell, the third week on the 1997 NBA Finals and the final week on Rudy Gobert.
All games will air at 7 p.m. MDT on AT&T SportsNet.
