There’s no other place anyone should want to be more than at Vivint Arena on Thursday night.

With their season hanging in the balance, the Utah Jazz return home for the biggest game of the season when they host Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks in game six of their first round series — tipoff is at 8 p.m. MST. The Jazz currently trail 3-2 and need a win to continue their season, and push the series back to Dallas for a decisive game seven. 

“You have to give them credit. … They protected homecourt,” Donovan Mitchell said of game five in Dallas. “We have to go home and take care of business. We’ll watch the film, we’ll adjust, and we’ll be ready for Thursday.”

If the Jazz are going to be ready — and you can assume they definitely will be — then the team is going to need all the support they can get from some of the best fans in the league. 

Before Utah tips off with Dallas on Thursday night, Jazz fans are encouraged to come out and get the party started hours before the first buzzer sounds. 

Set to start at 6 p.m. on Thursday evening, the Plaza Party will feature a multitude of activities. From a beer garden to local food truck favorites and appearances by the Utah Jazz dancers and Jazz Bear, there will be multiple things to do for everyone of all ages. 

The Jazz pre-game show, featuring legends Alema Harrington and Mike Smith, will also host a live broadcast down in the plaza, giving those in attendance the chance to be on TV. 

The season isn’t over yet, and the Jazz need the support of their home crowd if they’re going to find a way to force a game seven — come out, join the party, and help lead Utah to victory.
