Is the 2nd Saturday game supposed to be Detroit @ Milwaukee? It'd be kind of amazing if the Jazz were able to play two games at the same time.

The game is right but the date is wrong. Fixed! It's a Monday game. I base the schedule off this 2019-20 NBA TV Schedule page. If there are at least six TNT/ESPN/ABC games I use those. If less I pick up NBA TV games in order.

OMG! The Monday game is classified as a Saturday game in my picks! Whatever will I do?

Never trust Jazz in the city where the Blues were created.

Thursday, Nov. 21:

Trail Blazers get lost. Milwaukee by 14 SLAM Suns have put something together. Phoenix by 8

Friday, Nov. 22:

Spurs usually give you a game, but not against 76ers. Philadelphia by 17 SLAM I watched Clippers vs. Celtics last night, and they looked as good as advertised. Los Angeles (non-purple) by 9

Saturday, Nov. 23:

Pelicans could visit the national park named for their star draft pick, but he's still hurt. Utah by 14

Monday, Nov. 25:

I'm having cataract surgery on this day; left eye only, but I will try to keep an eye on this one. Milwaukee by 10 SLAM
