Having failed to eliminate the Clippers at home on Friday, the Utah Jazz have one last chance to win their first-round series in Los Angeles.
Somebody will win on Sunday (1:30 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4), because it's Game 7.
Logic tells us that the Clippers will have the advantage because they're playing at home ... or does it? The Jazz have won two out of three in L.A. this series, and the visiting team has won four out of six.
• Also on Friday, "Dear White People" starts streaming on Netflix. Justin Simien adapted his 2014 movie which premiered at Sundance into a 10-episode series. Yes, it still satirizes race relations, tensions and misunderstandings at a predominantly white, Ivy League-esque college. No, it's not an attack on white people. It lampoons everybody. Yes, it's still funny. And, yes, it's still provocative, because it makes us confront issues most of us would rather pretend don't exist.
• On Sunday, it's the premiere of "American Gods" (10 p.m., Starz), the much-anticipated adaptation of Neil Gaiman's book, and it's hard to describe. An ex-con gets a job from a guy who turns out to be the god Odin, and he's gathering the old gods (who live among us) to fight the new gods, like Technical Boy and Media. It's very violent, uber-adult, sort of overwhelming and utterly engaging.
