From this week's team to watch to the biggest matchups throughout the week, check below for the week ahead on NBA League Pass.

All times Eastern.

Team to watch: Jazz

Monday, March 11 vs. Oklahoma City, 9 p.m. | Wednesday, March 13 at Phoenix, 10 p.m. | Thursday, March 14 vs. Minnesota, 9 p.m. | Saturday, March 16 vs. Brooklyn, 9 p.m.

It's a big week for the Jazz, who are 6-4 over their last 10 games.

Utah enters the week in a three-way tie with San Antonio and the LA Clippers for the final three spots in the Western Conference. And while it's highly unlikely the Jazz fall out of the playoffs, this is as close to a make-or-break week as there can be with 17 games remaining in the regular season.

On Monday night, Utah takes on Oklahoma City, a team it currently trails by 2.5 games in the standings. The Thunder have won the first three meetings between the two teams this season, so the Jazz begin the week by aiming to avoid a series sweep at the hands of the team it eliminated from the postseason in 2018.

Monday's game airs on NBA TV Canada while the Raptors take on the Cavs, but the replay will be available on NBA League Pass shortly after.

The Jazz perimeter rotation is wearing thin - injuries to Ricky Rubio, Dante Exum and Raul Neto have resulted in rookie Grayson Allen seeing an increased role while Joe Ingles has assumed some playmaking responsibilties.

Utah will rely on its No. 4 rated defence (105.8 Defensive Rating) led by reigning Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert, while second-year guard Donovan Mitchell leads the offensive attack.

This season, Mitchell is averaging a team-high 23.5 points to go along with 4.1 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game. Gobert, who is second in the league with 2.3 blocks per game, is putting forth 15.4 points per game this year - the second best on the team.

Ingles is averaging 11.9 points connecting on 37.3 percent of his 5.7 3-point attempts per game; he is one of four Jazz players to knock down over two 3-pointers per game (Mitchell, Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver).

Utah hits the road Wednesday to visit the Phoenix Suns, who have been playing solid basketball as of late and returns home Thursday to host the Timberwolves, who have yet to be mathematically eliminated fro the playoff hunt.

Thursday's game will air on NBA TV Canada while the Raptors host LeBron James and the Lakers; the League Pass replay of Jazz-Wolves will be availble once the game ends.

The Jazz close their big week with a home game against the Nets, who also have plenty to play for as they look to move up in the East.

Catch Utah's big week and plenty more NBA action this week on NBA League Pass!
